▼ PIPELINE HEARING

The Enbridge project finds opposition

Alistair Waters

ASSISTANT EDITOR

It was a resounding no to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline in Kelowna Monday. Speaker after speaker who appeared before the National Energy Board’s three-member joint review panel expressed their opposition to the pipeline across Northern B.C. Concerns included a possible devastating leak from the pipeline itself and the threat of a catastrophic oil spill from the increased tanker ship traffic along B.C.’s northern coast carrying the diluted bitumen from the pipeline. The pipeline, between the oil sands in northern Alberta and Kitimat, would bring the diluted bitumen —a viscous form

of petroleum—west to be loaded onto tankers and shipped to Asian markets. After a year of public hearings, support for the project has fallen substansially in B.C., despite the federal government wanting to see the project go ahead based on economic reasons. “The Enbridge pipeline will not bring happiness. It will bring great environmental destruction,” said Golden resident Rachel Darvill who, along with her partner John Jenkins, were allowed to make her submission by teleconference. They had planned to make submissions at two earlier public hearings but the dates of those meetings were changed and the pair could not travel to them or to Kelowna to present in person.

PROTESTERS were out in force Monday outside the Sandman Hotel in Kelowna, site of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline review panel hearings.

Another speaker, Okanagan resident Sheila Polito, said she considers herself an average British Columbia, who loves the coast and wants to protect it from the danger of an oil spill. Despite her great fear of public speaking, Polito said she felt compelled to present her voice to the panel. And she urged the

panel to consider the voices of the many others who have not made presentations but who, she said, are also opposed to the pipeline, particularly First Nations people whose communities lie in the path of the proposed pipeline. Karen Siemens, who described herself as a nurse, a grandmother and

person with a great passion for the outdoors, told the panel many of her family members are currently making their living in the oil and natural gas industry in northern Alberta, and that she is not popular with them because of her opposition to the pipeline.

Pipeline proposal called ‘short-term gain for long-term pain’

STAFF REPORTER

The National Day of Activism was a blustery and snowy affair in the Okanagan as 200 people met in front of the Sandman Hotel on Enterprise Way as a review panel for the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline staged hearings inside. For most of Canada, the day was

about the Idle No More movement, with a large gathering on Parliament Hill and several flashmob circle dances staged in communities from Winnipeg to Ottawa to attract attention to the degradation of First Nation’s rights. There was a flashmob dance at the Sandman Hotel in Kelowna as well, though Idle No More protesters were only one of many interest groups

gathered to try and stop the Enbridge pipeline project. “People were really enthusiastic about coming to this event today to show their opposition to the pipeline and their support for the Idle No More movement,” said David Reid, director of the West Kootenay Eco Society. The group booked a bus and brought 35 people from Nelson to Christina Lake to Trail out to the

event. Four members of the group were scheduled to present to the panel and Reid said he believes the Enbridge debate is about the future of the nation’s economy. “The questions is: What is the purpose of our economy? Is it to maximize profit or is it to create a longterm sustainable society that serves everyone and protects our environment,” said Reid.”This pipeline

doesn’t do that. It accomplishes shortterm gain for long-term pain.” Idle No More started in reaction to Bill 45, new legislation that the movement claims strips environmental responsibilities from government requirements for companies like Enbridge to protect the land and waterways it touches.

Treatment for Chronic Foot Pain Available in Kelowna

▼ COURT

Pain in the feet is one of the most debilitating injuries we can be plagued with; it is felt in the arch of the foot (Plantar Fasciitis), the heel (Plantar Fasciitis or heel spur) or at the back of the ankle (Achilles Tendonitis). Unfortunately, we continuously use our feet, which makes healing from related injuries very difficult. Plantar Fasciitis is an overuse injury affecting the fibrous tissue that forms the arch. Heel spurs can form when the fascia tears at the heel attachment and results in pain in the center of the heel. Achilles Tendonitis is a irritation of the Achilles, or the back of the heel. The inflammation from overuse leads to pain as well as deposits of scar tissue, further inflaming the area each time the Achilles or plantar fascia are used. After the body has tried for weeks or months to heal the injury with no success, it gives up and healing stops. Shockwave Therapy breaks up scar tissue, restoring the function of the muscle and promoting new blood vessel growth, stimulating faster healing. In fact, in a double blind study published in Journal of the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society, 90% of patients suffering from heel and arch pain showed significant improvements with Shockwave. Furthermore, Shockwave Therapy (developed to break up kidney stones) has success rates of between 77%-91% in the treatment of other soft tissue conditions. Results are often experienced within a couple of visits and the treatment is covered by many insurance companies. Call 250-763-3580 to book a free consultation. To learn more see Dr. Harris’ You Tube video “Shockwave Therapy Kelowna” or go to www.glenmorechiro.com and click “Testimonials.” Dr. Harris and the staff at Glenmore Chiropractic invite healthcare professionals as well as Okanagan residents to an Open House showcasing shockwave therapy on March 9 from 11:00am-2:00pm. Results may vary from patient to patient

Local driver gets jail time for driving impaired that led to tragic accident Cheryl Wierda

jail, to be served intermittently, followed by probation. The Crown had argued for a three to four year jail sentence. In coming to his decision, Bowden ruled that the case law indicated a sentence of less than two years was warranted in a case where the “moral blameworthiness” is short-lived. He also highlighted the high profile case of Carol Berner, who killed a four-year-old girl in Delta in an impaired driving crash, and noted that Wengenmayr’s level of “moral culpability” was less than that of Berner. She was sentenced to two and a half years in jail. Bowden also factored in Wengenmayr’s level of impairment, the lack of erratic driving before the crash, his age and his lack of criminal record in coming to his sentencing decision. However, an aggravating factor was that Wengenmayr had been pulled over and blew a “warn” in a roadside screening device some 40 days before the crash that took Trey Alphonse’s life. “It should have been a significant wakeup call to Mr. Wengenmayr,” said Bowden.

CONTRIBUTOR

A young Kelowna father who killed a child while driving impaired has been sentenced to 18 months in jail. Cody Wengenmayr was 20 when his vehicle struck and killed 6-year-old Trey Alphonse, who was holding his mother’s hand and dragging a scooter as they jaywalked across Harvey Avenue around 10:15 p.m. on Aug. 30, 2010. At the time, his blood alcohol level was between 114 and 138 miligrams per 100 millilitres of blood and he was driving five kilometers per hour over the speed limit. Last Friday afternoon, Justice Gregory Bowden ruled the actions that led to Trey’s death warranted an 18 month sentence, while the bodily harm he caused to the boy’s mother, Iris, led to a 12 month sentence, to be served concurrently. About a dozen family and friends of Wengenmayr were on hand for the decision, many wiping tears from their eyes as they heard how long Wengenmayr would be sent to jail. Defence had asked for 90 days

Bowden also hopes the sentence will send a message to other young people who may consider drinking and getting behind the wheel. If they are involved in a crash like Wengenmayr and convicted, “a jail sentence will follow,” he said. Bowden did not have a victim impact statement from the Alphonse family to consider he crafted the sentence, but said that “the loss of a child…would be devastating.” Compounding this tragedy, he later said, is that Wengenmayr’s young daughter will now be separated from her father because of his incarceration. However, it is likely Wengenmayr will be released on parole prior to the conclusion of the 18-month sentence, as he is a first time offender. In addition to the jail time, Wengenmayr, who has not driven since the crash, faces a two year driving ban and two years of probation. Conditions of his probation include not consuming drugs or alcohol and not entering any liquor-primary business, taking counselling and completing 50 hours of community service.

▼ DREAMLIFT DAY

Wendy’s Disneyland trip fundraiser for challenged children ready to take-off Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Wendy’s staff and management, local volunteers, sheriffs from Orange County and thousands of residents are getting ready for one of the most successful fundraisers held annually throughout the southern interior of B.C. The 19th annual Wendy’s Dreamlift Day runs from 6 a.m. to close on Wednesday, at restaurant locations in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Vernon and Penticton. The gross proceeds from all food and beverage sales—as well as staff, management and owner’s wages—will be put toward the next Dreamlift to Disneyland: A oneday adventure organized by the Sunshine Foundation of Canada that sends children challenged by severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses to California. The next Dreamlift from this area is scheduled for later this year. This is the first year Ken Park, owner of the participating Wendy’s restaurants, will be directly involved with Dreamlift Day. John Tietzen, former owner and pioneer of the fundraiser, sold his franchises to Park last year. At the time, Park assured Tietzen he would carry on the fundraising tradition. “Last year I experienced Dreamlift at a Kamloops location,” said Park. “I spent the entire day watching, observing and learning. I thought: Wow, this is nothing like I’ve seen before…there is a lot of emotional attachment to this event.” Those who have been involved with the fundraiser for several years know the ins and outs of organizing the event; however, Park said he was impressed how much work goes into prepara-

tion to put it on. “They’ve put a tremendous amount of time and effort into arranging all of this,” said Park. “They are doing a very good job of getting everything ready.” Last year, more than $114,000 was collected, bringing the total raised to $1.1 million since 1995. The new owner said the goal is to beat last year’s record-breaking total. Park said he hopes to experience the Dreamlift to Disneyland later this year, but noted he is not willing to take a seat away from a potentially deserving child. If the flight is full, he said he will likely fly down on his own and meet up with the group in Anaheim. This year will be the first time Lyle Eggen, general manager of the Highway 97 Wendy’s location, will be behind the counter on Dreamlift Day. Eggen began his role in Kelowna in 2012 after running a Wendy’s in Prince George for six years. The new general manager said the days leading up to Dreamlift Day have been stressful, but “worth every moment.” “It seems like you just have endless energy. Everybody is working toward that goal of getting the store ready to go,” said Eggen. Although he hasn’t worked a Dreamlift Day in the past, Eggen has supported the cause as a customer. “The thing that strikes me is how knowledgeable the people in the lineup are,” he said. “It seems the entire community knows what this event is about and what the money is going toward.” Regular Wendy’s employees will be joined by local celebrities, community organizations, Mounties, former Wendy’s employees and

Interior Dreamlift to Disneyland for children with severe disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. other residents to help serve the seemingly endless lineup of customers. “The people who are coming in have the right attitude; they want to be here to help. Many hands make light work,” he said. Dorothy Hamilton, regional marketing director for Wendy’s, said this year’s focus is on how to refer a child. “It’s important for Wendy’s that everybody in our region know exactly how to start the referral process,” said Hamilton. “If they know a child who has a severe physical disability or life-threatening illness, it is really easy to connect with Sunshine and get everything started.” That process can be done by visiting sunshine. ca and clicking on the “dreams” tab. “We want to make sure that there aren’t any children who haven’t been given this opportun-

ity.” The Dreamlift to Disneyland trip currently takes place every two years and is meant to give children ages three to 18 a day in the happiest place on Earth. According to Hamilton, the Sunshine Foundation has a team of doctors who go over applications to determine the children most suitable for the journey. Some children’s conditions prevent them from travelling, but Hamilton encouraged residents to refer those kids as well because the Sunshine Foundation may have the ability to accommodate them with a unique, personalized dream. Melvin Robertson knows how much Dreamlift to Disneyland can mean for a child. His grandson, Clayton, went on the 2009 trip. “He still talks about it,” said Robertson.

“It’s terrific for the people who go on it; it’s one very important part of (their) lives.” Clayton suffers from cystic fibrosis. According to Robertson, his grandson has been in the B.C. Children’s Hospital for the last two weeks after doctors discovered a small infection in his lungs. “Ever since he’s been born he’s been going in for checkups every three months. “They catch things before they get too far—but if you’re not looking after yourself or getting the checkups, that might do you in.” Clayton was expected to be released from the hospital Tuesday. Robertson said he will be one of the customers lining up for Dreamlift Day Wednesday. “I’m behind it 110 per cent.”

Psychiatric assessment anticipated for Grossmith The case of a man accused of bludgeoning his mother with a hammer is headed to Supreme Court and a likely assessment to determine if he is not criminally responsible for the death because of a mental disorder.

The expected order will extend Conor Frederick Grossmith’s stay in a forensic psychiatric hospital, where officials have already found the young man is fit to stand trial at this time, said defence lawyer Joe

Gordon on Friday. At issue now is if the Crown’s psychiatric assessment will show if Grossmith is not criminally responsible by reason of mental disorder. The defence has already had

a psychiatric assessment completed. Grossmith is accused of attacking his mother, 57-year-old Kate Gilchrist, in her home on Sept. 13, 2012. She died nine days later.

Kettle campaign surpasses goal Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Community support was probably the best Christmas gift the Salvation Army was given this year. According to Major Ron Cartmell of the Salvation Army, the Christmas kettle campaign raised $320,000 this year; last year $266,000 was raised. Cartmell added donations went above and beyond Salvation Army’s 2012 goal of $300,000. “We surpassed our goal, which is fantastic because it allows us not just to continue, but to expand helping families in the community,” said Cartmell.

Planning A WINTER GETAWAY?

The westbound lane of Rose Avenue adjacent to Kelowna General Hospital from the east parkade to Pandosy Street will be closed for three days this week, Wednesday to Friday. Vehicle traffic on this section of Rose will be one way eastbound only on these days. In order to access the KGH parkades from Pandosy, hospital visitors are asked to detour down Royal or Christleton avenues onto Abbott Strett and enter the KGH site from the west end of Rose. Traffic leaving the site will still be able to exit

eastbound from Rose onto Pandosy. This closure is necessary so that FortisBC can install new gas lines to service the Interior Heart and Surgical Centre, currently under construction at the corner of Pandosy and Rose. The construction company, PCL Constructors, will have flag people on hand for the duration of the work, and detour signs will clearly indicate the new traffic patterns. There will be no change to the Emergency patient drop-off. Patients requiring emergency treatment can be dropped

off at the emergency department entrance on Royal Avenue. Other patients may be dropped off at one of three entrances: • Lab building (Dr. Walter Anderson Building). Take the elevator to the third floor and walk across Pandosy Skywalk to access the Centennial Building and the rest of KGH • Main hospital entrance (Centennial Building). Drop patients off at the main entrance off Pandosy • West side of KGH (Royal Building). Drop patients off at the Strathcona Ave. west entrance.

Enbridge fight draws out protesters’passion

▼ PIPELINE HEARING

Proposal from A1

Project from A1

Thus those opposed to the pipeline and those supporting Idle No More share a symbiotic relationship evident in the presence of First Nations communities represented in the hotel parking lot Monday. “I came because I’m here to protect the land and the water for future generations. I have three small children and I want there to be a future for them and my grandkids,” said Stephanie Mason, an adopted Okanagan woman originally from the Tsleil-waututh Nation in North Vancouver. Tom Nixon was also in attendance and has spent much of the last year working on the fight against the Enbridge line organizing a caravan last summer to support the First Nations communities affected. “The non-First Peoples don’t understand,” he said. “It’s not just about what happens if the pipeline bursts; it’s the pipeline itself is going to ruin their land.” The caravan lasted 10 days and traversed the area affected from Prince George to Smithers, Burns Lake to Hazelton and Terrace. “It was a soul changer for me. I can’t put it into words,” he said. Plenty of people in Kelowna could find words for their feelings on the issue with some 31 signing up to speak to the review panel and 200 braving the winter conditions to raise a voice in the parking lot. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Varying opinions called helpful to process “But you have to do what you believe in,” she said. She said Hecate Strait, which tanker ships would have to pass through to get to Kitimat to collect the diluted bitumen, is not the place for tanker traffic. Earlier in the hearing, it was described as the sixth most dangerous waterway in the world, according to a 2010 UBC study. B.C. has had an informal moratorium on oil tanker traffic in Hecate Strait for the last 40 years. While a few hundred protesters held signs, drummed, chanted and gave speeches outside the hearing denouncing the pipeline proposal, those inside noted widespread opposition from aboriginal groups as well as 13-01-13 2:06 PM non-aboriginal Canadians

for the project. But they were small in number because of a last minute change by organizers. Only the panel, support staff, presenters, invited guests and the media, were allowed, along with a large contingent of security personal. The hearing was originally scheduled to be open to the public but NEB communications officer Kristen Higgins said that was changed Saturday when the panel became aware of “public safety concerns.” While she said no threat had been received, she would not elaborate on what the safety concern was, where it came from or how it was learned. But Higgins did say organizers bumped up the amount of security as a result and closed the hearing

to the general pubic. She said similar hearings held in Vancouver and Victoria earlier this month were also closed to the general public. Some of the presenters who appeared before the panel during the morning session Monday criticized the federal Conservative government, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper in particular, for not only the pipeline proposal but Canada’s approach to dealing with climate change. Others addressed the potential for an oil spill or leak, both on land and in the water off the coast, as too big a price to pay for the economic returns. They pointed to a recent serious leak in Michigan from another Enbridge pipeline that polluted a river. The scathing report issued by U.S. federal En-

vironmental Protection Agency harshly criticized the company for its lack of action in dealing with the Michigan oil leak both at the time of the leak and after it. The clean-up in the Kalamazoo River is still not complete nearly two years later. Despite the barrage of criticism directed at the company Monday and the lack of support for the Northern Gateway pipeline project appears to have, a spokesman for Enbridge said Monday the company believes it does have supporters in B.C. Ivan Giesbrecht, manager of communications for Western Access, said the company has hosted plenty of community meetings across the province and has heard plenty of support. But Giesbecht said he welcomed the opportunity to hear from people

here, despite the fact the pipeline will not come anywhere near to the Okanagan. “This is a really helpful process,” said Giesbrecht, adding his company always encourages its supporters to speak up and they have done so in the past. He pointed to the Northern Gateway Alliance, a group of pipeline supporters who have produced television ads pushing the project. The one-day Kelowna hearing was the 17th of 18 scheduled for the project. The next one will extend over 10 weeks and take place in Prince Rupert this spring. The joint panel’s report must be completed by December and then it will be up to the federal government to approve or deny Enbridge’s application for the pipeline. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Politicians weigh in on pipeline project Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Local opponents to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline came out in force last Saturday night. They filled a local church to hear five prominent speakers denounce the project and blast both the federal and provincial governments for how the issue has been handled. About 400 people packed into First United Church to hear Green

Party leader and Saanich-Gulf Islands MP Elizabeth May, provincial NDP environment critic and Victoria-Swan Lake MLA Rob Fleming, filmmaker and environmental journalist Damien Gillis and Grand Chief Stewart Philip, president of the Union of B.C.

joined both aboriginal and non-aboriginal people in the fight to “protect Mother Earth.” “This is a tipping point,” said Phillip. “We are at a very critical point in human history.” He said the health and well-being of the planet is at stake. But he added the concern is not just about the proposed Enbridge pipeline. He said another proposal, by Kinder Morgan to twin its Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Edmonton and Burnaby, could be the “plan B” if Enbridge’s proposal fails. Both May and Fleming, pointed the finger of blame at Prime Minister Stephen Harper, saying his government wants to push the Enbridge proposal through for economic reasons.

Perkins to help victims of house party trashing

Public forum takes health to heart Wade Paterson

mental in the effort to bring full cardiac care services to Kelowna General Hospital, said too often the focus of health care is on healing rather than pre-

vention. “Your heart is an amazing organ, it’s the engine of your body. We have to keep it healthy,” said Hooper. Hooper said coronary artery disease is the cause of most heart problems in North America, and it often begins at a young age. According to Hooper, since Interior Health introduced the angioplasty program in 2009, the death rate from heart attacks has reduced by 50 per cent within the community.

But even though the rates of heart disease have been falling, it is still the number one killer of people in our society with 12 million deaths annually, said Hooper. The cardiologist gave four key tips to prevent heart issues for those in the audience: Eat smart, exercise, stop smoking and know your own numbers—such as cholesterol and blood pressure. “I think every one of us have lifestyle choices that we can make in terms of protecting our hearts. “Heart disease is often

avoidable by following the simple guidelines.” Hooper thanked Letnick for continuing with his series of health forums, noting its importance and relevance for members of the community. According to Letnick, who was chair of the Select Standing Committee on Health, Saturday’s turnout of nearly 100 people was the biggest he has had to date.

taking with the pipeline. Since making that demand, the B.C. government has also said it wants a series of environmental protection benchmarks met before it will support the proposal. Fleming is opposed to the pipeline and an NDP government would give notice to end that deal Campbell signed so the final decision would rest in Victoria’s hands, not Ottawa’s. He said Canada needs a national energy policy so issues like this do not threaten the environment. According to Fleming,

seven in 10 British Columbians now oppose the Enbridge pipeline plan. The 1,177 kilometre pipeline would take diluted bitumen—a viscous form of petroleum— west from the oil sands of Northern Alberta to Kitimat, where it would be loaded on to tanker ships and sent to Asian markets. A total of 657 kilometres of the pipeline would stretch across northern B.C. May, who made history in 2011 when she was elected as the first Green Party MP in Canada, said the federal Conservatives

have “skewed” our economy by putting all the countries resources into fossil fuel expansion. She said the couuntry is missing out on billions of dollars that could be achieved through what she called “clean tech.” “We need to have a discussion on our energy policies,” she said. As for Enbridge proposal, she said Ottawa has ignored the constitutionally entrenched right of First Nations to be consulted about the project. “I think that’s pretty fundamental,” said May. The audience who

showed up for the meeting— hosted by the local chapter of the Council of Canadians and First United Church—were fully in support of all the points made by the speakers and gave them a standing ovation at the end.

Perkins Restaurant in Kelowna wants to come to the aid of a Mission family who rental home was trashed by people attending a house party there last week. The couple were away and returned home to find their belongings badly damaged. Without rental insurance, their losses include computers which were stolen, a brand new television smashed which the couple’s children received for Christmas and all of their clothes and food. Sarah Foss, manager of Perkins located in the Ramada Hotel on Harvey Avenue, heard the story and after contacting the family involved, wanted to do something to help them out. That help will come in the form of the donation of all coffee sale proceeds at the restaurant on Thursday, Jan. 31, from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. “This is something new for us to take on but my heart just went out to that family, especially for the young kids who lost all their toys,” Foss said. “We just want to help a family in need.”

Help make a dream come true

I

t isn’t often people have a chance to help make a child’s dream come true. So when the opportunity arises, we should make every effort to ensure the chance doesn’t slip away. Okanagan residents now have just such a chance. The 19th annual Wendy’s Dreamlift Day runs Wednesday at all nine Wendy’s Restaurants in the Thompson-Okanagan. Staff and management donate their wages for the day, with local dignitaries also on

hand at the restaurant to help fill the orders of the seemingly endless stream of customers. Proceeds from the day all go to the Sunshine Foundation of Canada. The money allows the foundation to take dozens of Okanagan children with life-threatening illnesses or severe physical disabilities to Disneyland. The trip provides a once-ina-lifetime opportunity for the children to forget about their medical conditions for a day and just enjoy being a kid.

The Dreamlifts create lasting memories for some very special kids, and the overwhelming support shown for the cause here in the Central Okanagan is also something that is hard to forget. Last year’s Wendy’s Dreamlift Day collected $114,276, bringing the total to more than $1 million raised for the Sunshine Foundation since its inception in 1995. With such a deserving cause, it’s not hard to understand why Wendy’s Dreamlift Day holds

such a special place for many local residents. “People are lined up outside during the event and most of them don’t care,” said Steve Tuck, past-president of the Sunshine Foundation’s Interior chapter. Sometimes dreams can come true. Local residents can again this year play a big role in making it happen. If you don’t believe it, just head down to Wendy’s and find out for yourself. It’s worth the wait.

Clash of aboriginal resource jobs vs. environmental impact

L

ately I’ve seen two very significant issues facing Canadian aboriginals in the media. The first is the Idle No More movement which is pressing the federal government to make some decisions and move forward on a number of issues such as the environment. The main issues seem to stem from Bill C-38 which redefines how we protect our environment and gives the government more power over resource development. The other is Bill C-45 which takes

into account our waterways including the Fisheries Act and once again gives the government more power to implement change. Running parallel to Jane this movement is such Muskens economic activity as mining exploration, future mines, and other resource sensitive issues such as Enbridge. A good example of this kind of economic activity is an area which is about 500 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay, Ont., just below James Bay called the Ring of Fire. This area is rich in chromium and

nickel. Chromium is used to make stainless steel which is in high demand in growth sector economies such as China and India. What’s happening in these First Nation communities is a desire by many to work for the mines, but they lack the education and skills to qualify for these jobs. This is what happened in Attawapiskat and the De Beers diamond mine. Support to the First Nations community for education and training to meet the needs of the diamond mining economy just didn’t happen as quickly as it could have. The aboriginal labour pool couldn’t meet the needs of the employer thereby not

providing the Attawapiskat community with greater economic returns. Now Noront, a mining company out of Toronto, is keen in ensuring its mining operations can employ as many local aboriginal workers as possible. They are aiming for a 25 per cent aboriginal workforce. The company is looking at training options instead of asking workers to have the required Grade 12 graduation. The company would take into account previous work experience and have workers complete local training programs. Other initiatives include summer camps that were held last year. Ab-

original youth age eight to 19 spent time learning such things as prospecting, claim staking, mapping, GPS technology and the application of environmental geochemistry. Mining and other resource-based economies have the opportunity to bring employment into the hinterland of Canada and at the same time provide Aboriginal communities with jobs. How the Idle No More movement will reconcile this with its environmental concerns and Bill C-38 and Bill C-45 will be interesting.

▼ POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION

International enrolment declining

To the editor: Kelowna MLA Steve Thomson has written a report in the Capital News (Jan. 24 edition) titled Good News for Okanagan College, that indicated international student enrolment is increasing in B.C. Ironically, it is quite the opposite in Thomson’s own riding. Okanagan College has been facing a decrease

in the number of international students enrolled. As an international student who has studied for the past few years at Okanagan College, I can confirm that service levels have been reduced and staffing for the international student department has decreased as a result of lower levels of international student enrolment. On top of decreas-

ing levels of international student enrolment, Okanagan College has had to contend with chronic underfunding that has only grown under the decade of Liberal government. Okanagan College isn’t the only institution to face these challenges; most other colleges in B.C. have faced extreme budget pressure due to inadequate funding.

In fact, B.C. colleges and universities receive less per student funding today, than they did in 2001. So no Mr. Thomson, unfortunately we are not at a point where we can be completely proud of the post-secondary education system in B.C. Jingwei (Javid) Wu, Kelowna

Don’t blame farmers for wanting to sell

To the editor: I read with interest the recent letters to the editor concerning agricultural land (being taken out of) the Agricultural Land Reserve, in particular along KLO Road. For example here in Kelowna, we have agricultural land which is farmed or not. A developer comes to the owner and offers him $3.5 million for his property. Who would not be tempted? How many years would this owner have to toil in the soil, to amass the $3.5 million?

More than likely he, his children and grandchildren would have to work seven days per week and still could not earn that amount of money in their lifetimes. Second, who would harvest the crops? For years now I have heard about how hard the orchardists had to be able to hire enough workers to harvest their existing crops. As a preteen, I worked in the Chinese gardens in and around Vernon in the late 1940s and early ’50s. Kids were paid 35 cents an hour, 10 hours per day, 5 1/2 days per

week. Then the powers to be decided that we had to have a minimum wage. This drove the Chinese into abandonment of the vegetable gardens. The could not pay the minimum wage. Are you willing to go out and assist in the harvest of crops? No. So don’t complain if the farmers decide to sell their properties and let the interest accumulate on their sale price. We are all authors of this situation. Walk in the landowners’ shoes. Orest Kociuba, Kelowna

Pro-gun crowd quiet on liberty issues

To the editor: Re: Jack Bradcoe’s recent letter in the Capital News (Jan. 15) headlined The Need to be Ready for In-house Tyranny. Bradcoe’s assertion that liberty depends on easy access to firearms echoes a political theory almost as old as the U.S. Constitution itself. But research on the subject quickly shows that his argument is entirely without merit. Comparison with other democracies in western Europe and east Asia reveals a good number of systems much less cor-

rupted than the U.S.  None of the other advanced industrial democracies are in any danger of becoming tyrannies, despite their tight gun regulations. Liberties are not lost through martial law and open “unscrupulous authoritative aggression” by governments, as Bradcoe put it, but rather through gradual erosion—undermining the principle of presumption of innocence, invasion in private affairs, election fraud, etc.  Civil rights activists will be able to point to a number of such troubling

changes in our country and abroad. But gun advocates, self-declared guardians of our liberties, do nothing about it—unless their gun privileges are affected. Did gun owners voice protests when several hundred peaceful demonstrators were illegally detained in Toronto during the G20 meetings?  Ironically, in such cases we will likely find gun owners actually siding with the government of the day. A tyrannical government comes knocking not wielding guns, but instead carrying the law. And gun owners don’t op-

Wealth in the hands of too few

To the editor: On Jan.25, the Capital News printed a letter by Laura Livingstone headlined Anti-capitalist is taken to task, a rebuttal to an earlier letter by Robert Cichocki on Jan. 22, headlined Canada Could Learn a Lesson from Norway. I am seeing red through not-so-rosecoloured glasses, and I am not a communist or a fascist. I am simply a normal average man, married with three children and two grandsons and have lived in Kelowna for 90 per cent of my life. When I completed my education, I entered the labour market and tried hard to raise a family in this beautiful valley, a haven for tourists and heaven for businesses that take advantage of the “sunshine tax.” Ms. Livingstone makes the comment, how these left-wing views can create jobs is beyond her. Let me attempt to answer that statement. As a result of the Great Depression during the 1930s (caused by capitalism

running wild), the Bank of Canada was created to lend money to Canadian people and businesses. This allowed ordinary, average Canadians with dreams to exploit our vast natural resources. Today, Canadian banks are mostly only eager to print money and invest to millionaires and billionaires (that’s why, in part, Canada’s banks are rated the best on the planet). A policy of zero risk—if you have a million we will gladly lend you a million. Shrewd banking strategy, eh? If people like Ms. Livingstone are so impressed with the way businesses have perverted capitalism to a point where the top one per cent controls 99 per cent of the world’s wealth, then perhaps these noble individuals can stand up, face the masses and explain to us ‘pee-ons’ how this ponzi scheme will help solve our world’s economic mess. J.R. Saunders, Kelowna

pose them, but instead invite them in. And a final point—the argument that liberty depends on easy access to firearms implies that effective opposition to a tyranny is not possible unless citizens are armed. That claim is nonsense because it ignores the fact that many of the revolutions during the latter part of the 20th century were entirely peaceful—East Germany and the fall of the Berlin Wall, Bulgarian revolution or the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia, all in 1989. If arguments of gun rights advocates had any merit, those revolutions would not have been possible without armed revolutionaries. Jens Gessner, Kelowna

Colleges face funding hits To the editor: Kelowna MLA Steve Thomson paints a pretty picture of B.C. post-secondary education in his recent MLA’s report (Friday, Jan. 24, Capital News). I wonder if he’s really just looking through rose tinted glasses and posturing for his party before the imminent provincial election. In his report headlined Good News for Okanagan College, Thomson touts a seven per cent increase in international students coming to our province. In reality, larger universities have gobbled up the vast majority of these international students. As a result, Okanagan College has actually seen a substantial decrease in international student enrollment over the past couple years. The fact is the Liberal government has poorly managed post-secondary education. Colleges in B.C. have not received an increase in provincial funding to cover inflationary costs for almost six years. The past three budgets at Okanagan College have had to absorb over $6 million in inflationary costs through staff reductions, increased ancillary fees, and across the board tuition fee increases for students. Fancy sustainable buildings don’t mean much if our institutions don’t have the proper funding to meet their mandate of providing accessible and affordable post-secondary education to the students in our community.

This column is like…incredible…literally A while back, I wrote a column entitled: Use Writing As A Tool, Don’t Be One. The point of that column was to encourage business people (myself included) to adopt some basic steps to improve their workplace writing. As I said then, even with all the technology at our disposal, the written word is still our primary mode of communication. It is important for us all—employers included—to write in a way that gets our message across

YOU WORK HERE

Robert Smithson without confusing or offending readers. The first of those steps was eliminating needlessly complex phrases such as “pursuant to.” Nobody speaks that way, so why would we write that way? Write the way you

would speak. Say what you mean, say it simply, and say it briefly (if possible). There is no necessity to continuously prove your intelligence to everyone around you. The second recommended step is to ditch the “us versus them” mentality. This attitude can become institutionalized and can plant the seeds for discontent, confrontation and, eventually, a telephone call to a local union organizer. A third step is to get

rid of mealy-mouthed phrases such as “it has been decided.” That’s a well-entrenched corporate strategy for passing the buck but everybody sees through it. Say what needs to be said. Don’t candy-coat it, and don’t waste space implying that somebody else was responsible for the decision. A fourth step, and probably the best of the bunch, is to stop trying to sound like lawyers! We’re viewed as jerks by much of society, so why would you want to sound like us? Beyond those ideas, I’ve been noticing more recently that, in both written and verbal communications, there are some words which are drastically overused. Replacing these trite little chestnuts would, in my view, do us a world of good in our communications. One word which gives me the urge to pummel my computer screen with a coffee mug is “obviously.” People who are smugly making a point to a person who has a contrary point of view often resort to the use of “obviously.” As in, “Obviously, I

should have been given the time off for my trip.” Can’t you tell, by the fact that the person you’re communicating with disagrees with you, that your point isn’t exactly obvious? Another word that I think is drastically overused these days is “admitted,” as in: “Mr. Harper admitted that his government hasn’t fully addressed the issue.” My issue with admitted is it suggests a degree of reluctance or unwillingness and, therefore, implies wrongdoing or guilt on the part of the speaker. There are many contexts in which more neutral—less loaded—words such as “acknowledged,” “noted” and “commented” would be far more appropriate. If you listen to radio news at all (CBC, you know I’m talking about you), you’ll be familiar with what I call, “that shortcut.” This is the use of the word “that” to avoid having to actually take a couple of seconds to describe the subject. As in, “There’s more news on that flood in Sicamous.” I’m not sure why, but this shortcut really bothers me.

Perhaps because it just seems lazy. Would it take that much more effort to say, “There’s more news on the flood which struck the B.C. community of Sicamous last week?” I couldn’t address overused words without mentioning the scourge that is the word “like.” Living, as I do, with two teenaged boys, I hear the word “like” many, many times per day. I have, however, developed a little trick which, if nothing else, serves to make the like abuser as irritated as me. When, for instance, one of my sons says something to the effect of: “It was, like, crazy hot out,” I’ll interrupt and ask, “So…just so I’m clear, was it actually crazy hot out or was it just like it was crazy hot out?” Satisfying, perhaps, but seemingly ineffectual at altering the bad habit. And, the hand-in-hand partner to “like” often will be “literally.” Funnily (to me, anyway), people often use literally when, in fact, the exact opposite is the case, as in: “It was so, like, crazy hot that I literally almost died!” Really? Did you really almost die? Because, in fact, I don’t think you did.

But (and I believe this column has now progressed into a rant), my absolute least favourite word of the moment is “incredible.” Spend some time watching television or listening to the people around you for a day or so, and count the number of times people use this word as their adjective of choice. As in, “There was an incredibly long lineup at the checkout when I was buying groceries.” Really? Was the length of the lineup really incredible? Because, the word incredible means too extraordinary and improbable to be believed. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I can’t grasp that absolutely everything in our world can be incredible. So, perhaps try some other adjectives such as tremendous, fantastic, or extraordinary. Adopting even a few of these guidelines would make our written and verbal communications incredibly better. Like, literally. Robert Smithson is a labour and employment lawyer, and operates Smithson Employment Law in Kelowna. www.smithsonlaw.ca

Starbucks to help special needs kids Claro Learning Centre offers educational programs for school-aged children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), and other neurological and developmental disabilities. On Wednesday, these special kids are helping to raise money to support the efforts of building a new facility for the Central Okanagan Child Development Centre to serve the needs of younger children who face the same challenges. The Central Okanagan Development Centre is having a friends and family fundraiser to kick off their Building Capital Campaign at the new Starbucks Glenmore location (210-1970 Kane Rd.) from 3 to

7 p.m. Starbucks will serve free drinks with every donation, as 100 per cent of the proceeds donated will be earmarked for the Child Development Centre’s Capital Campaign. The Claro kids will be greeting everyone at the door and accepting donations to help the Central Okanagan Child Development Association. Central Okanagan Child Development Centre serves special needs children and their families from birth till they enter school. Since 1984, the need for the services provided by the Central Okanagan Child Development Centre has increased by nearly 300 per cent.

CENTRAL OKANAGAN WEATHER FORECAST “Mike said it would be like this!” CHBC NEWS

They’re launching an effort to raise funds to build a new facility that will become the hub for special needs services in the Okanagan area so no child will have to be turned away due to lack of space or resources. Many of the kids at Claro benefit from the programs offered at the Child Development Centre. As such, they and their families are helping launch the kickoff of the Central Okanagan Child Development Centre’s Building Capital Campaign. They have seen first-hand how the child development centre improved their quality of life. They want the next generation of special needs kids to benefit as well.

Entrepreneur creativity Dealing with divorce and separation opens many avenues U

M

any times over these past few years, we have been reminded that entrepreneurship is often defined by its cornerstones of innovation and creativity. We ought to remember that those two elements lead us to the threshold of the critical entrepreneurial leadership element. I have been fortunate writing this column to meet and befriend many incredibly talented people who for an abundance of reasons have found their way to or returned to our beloved Okanagan region. And isn’t it also a mystery that for some of us, we surprisingly discover that we can actually achieve what we dream of when we focus on the possible? I would like to share with you this week a story of a young woman, Janyse Jaud. Jaud was born in Kelowna with four older brothers. Her parents were professional architects, who believed in their daughter’s dream of embracing a different path for her life journey at an early age in the arts and entertainment genre. Jaud began down this path by obtaining her academic experience at UBC Vancouver in linguistics and literature, enjoying youth oriented job positions along the way. Quickly, she found herself embracing theatre performance, dance and the service sector to develop and hone her continually evolving arts culture skills. And then, as often happens in this magical world of ours, Jaud found her way to the other end of Canada, moving to Montreal in 2000 to enjoy the formation of her amazingly diverse career doing voiceovers for film and television. By 2002, Jaud found herself entrenched in television commercials and her creative juices were beginning to create a torrent of success and personal enjoyment. Raised within the agricultural world of the Kelowna’s hillsides in a family with French and Icelandic routes, she determined that striving for excellence at an early age would be comprised of embracing every opportunity of interest as a building block for her future, not only for her career but

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young for her self-actualization as a creative dreamer. I had met Jaud while attending a media conference for the Okanagan Film Commissioner in Kelowna. I was immediately struck by her artistic presence. In reviewing her biography, I was absolutely amazed at the achievement this innovative person has accomplished. What I particularly want to highlight for you today is Jaud’s recent creative work with the Magic of Think project. She initially met several children from The Make A Wish Foundation and who made their “one wish” to meet Jaud along with the cast and crew of her award-winning animated series, “Ed, Edd n Eddy.” It was during that experience that Jaud realized the power that cartoons can play on a child’s life. So she asked herself, what if she used her years of experience and contacts to create positive characters, music and stories that might help children develop courage so they could deal more effectively with the negatives of bullying, selfdoubt, a life-threatening illness or any other personal challenge? Hence, the Magic of Think was born (www. themagicofthink.com). OK then, let me take a moment to share with you the true creative side of this Okanagan artist by the awards she has won: • Winner of Best Song Hollywood Music in Media Awards • Emmy award-winning “ Adoption Stories” Discovery Channel • Winner Best Jazz CD Toronto Magazine Awards • Nominated Best Song “Stomp” Independent Music Awards USA • Nominated for Best Song “Blessed Is This Holy Night” Hollywood Music in Media Awards • Worked with Warner Bros.; Hasbro; Alliance Atlantis; Cartoon Network; Marvel • Living in Montreal and being the voice of the federal government • Being on stage at the

Emmys in New York as part of a winning team • Being recognized for her songwriting with multi-nominations and international awards • Having songs chosen to be in 10 motion pictures to date. Jaud is currently seeking interest from the Okanagan professional and corporate world to assist in distributing her beautiful The Magic of Think CD and a program throughout Canada through charitable organizations as fundraisers par excellence. This unique and innovative project is focused as a social and emotional learning program for children ages 4 to 7 that helps build courage, inspire discussion and increase the bonding mechansim through music, stories and activities.

pon the breakup of a marriage or long-term relationship, you need to have open communication with each other to resolve issues. If you need an impartial third party, then a mediator or lawyer will provide independent legal advice. The laws relating to relationship breakdown can be complex. The courts are concerned with children as one of the first and foremost important issues to deal with. The division of family assets need to be divided equally. Family assets include the family home and are subject to division regardless of when the home was purchased or who purchased it. Other family assets include vehicles, furniture, second homes, bank accounts, RRSP and other assets used by the family. To find out how much you own and how much you owe, begin by listing your accumulated assets minus the liabilities. The family financial obligations need to be organized with the net amount being divided fairly between the couple. There are many life changes that occur during marriage and after a marriage ends. Couples usually make each other the beneficiary of their wills. Upon divorce, review your will as any provisions in the will may no longer be valid. When drafting a new will after a marriage breakdown, ensure any dependent children are properly provided for in your will. With registered assets with named beneficiaries, you will need to review your beneficiary designations to determine if they are still appropriate during and after your separation / divorce. In the case or registered assets such as RRSPs that are transferred subject to a legal agreement on relationship breakdown, the tax form T2220 is completed and the assets are transferred within the tax shelter to avoid

immediate taxation. If you or your spouse are members of a Registered Pension Plan, a division of these assets will also be a factor in the division of assets. Canada Pension Plan recognizes that in a legal marriage or common-law relaDoreen tionship, both spouses or common-law Smith partners share in the building of their assets and entitlements. Among these are Canada Pension Plan pension credits. When a relationship ends, the Canada Pension Plan pension credits the couple built up during the time they lived together can be divided equally between them. This division is called credit splitting. Credits can be split even if one spouse or common-law partner did not pay into the Canada Pension Plan. With life insurance, married couples name each other as beneficiaries of each other’s life insurance. If you have children you may choose to continue with the existing life insurance to ensure that if the supporting person dies, there is sufficient money to support the children. Life insurance is often used instead of mortgage insurance and if that is the case, the insurance policy should remain in force until all financial obligations have been dealt with. If you do not contact your insurance company to change the beneficiary, your former spouse will continue to be the beneficiary on your policy. You can also update your beneficiary to reflect the change of marital status. When a marriage or long term relationship breaks up, there are many important life changes to review. The division of accumulated assets needs to be fairly divided. Doreen Smith is a certified financial planner with Capri Wealth Management Inc.

PARENTING Postpartum Depression Awareness A child’s birth is a time often filled with great anticipation, excitement and joy as a family welcomes the new little person and is filled with hope about all the possibility inherent in a new life. Unfortunately, for some mothers this joyful experience can turn into a nightmare when they sink into depression, anxiety or even psychosis. By now, most people are aware of the existence of postpartum depression—a condition that can affect up to 15 per cent of new moth-

ers. But sadly there are still many who don’t want to talk about it openly. Societal expectations surrounding motherhood often place unspoken pressure on women to bury negative feelings and many don’t seek help even when they need it. January is postpartum depression awareness month and I thought a fitting time to revisit this important topic. Pregnancy and the postpartum period are times when women are

most vulnerable to develop or relapse into mental illness. Extreme changes in hormone levels can affect brain chemistry as well as most other body systems and often trigger symptoms of depression or anxiety. Of course the tremendous life change, disrupted sleep and stress of becoming a parent can also increase susceptibility to a mood disorder. As a result of all of these factors, most women experience mild mood symptoms after giving birth. These

can include sadness, weepiness, lack of concentration and moodiness. This is not considered a disorder though because symptoms are mild and subside in a few days. For those who develop full blown postpartum depression, symptoms can be much more severe and require treatment with either therapy, medication or a combination. Depression can come on gradually and may begin at any time during pregnancy, immediately following delivery or within the first year of motherhood. Risk factors include previous postpartum depression, personal or family history of depression or other mental illness, a difficult pregnancy, high levels of stress, depression or anxiety during pregnancy, mood changes while taking birth control or fertility medication or social isolation. Screening questionnaires and

doctor interviews during pregnancy can help to identify those at risk and ensure support systems are in place before a crisis develops. It is important to note that postpartum depression is an illness. It is not HEALING a product of a weak MINDS character or the fault of the mother. Counseling, medication and social support are all important facPaul tors in treating this and with Latimer condition help, depressed mothers recover well and can expect a happy, normal life.  Most important, if you or someone you love is experiencing postpartum depression or anxiety, seek help. Not only will support and treatment help the affected mother, but it can also help to keep children safe and happy. Untreated, maternal depression can have a profound negative effect on family relationships and the healthy development of children. Help is available.

Findings link polyunsaturated fat to heart health risk UBC researcher Sanjoy Ghosh wants to better understand how diet can cause chronic cardiovascular complications for people trying to control diabetes and obesity. Ghosh, assistant professor of biology with the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences at UBC’s Okanagan campus, is investigating the role Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) play in the development of heart disease in people with diabetes and obesity. Omega-6 PUFA includes vegetable oil, canola oil, corn oil, sunflower oil and safflower oil, all commonly used in food products in Canada, and a major staple of the North American diet. Omega-6 is generally thought to be a “healthy” fat, but Ghosh notes that his own research, as well as other recent studies, suggests too much Omega-6 could cause inflammation and damage the heart muscle. Fifty years ago, before Omega-6 was widely promoted as a health benefit, the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 PUFA found in the human diet was close to a one-to-one ratio, says Ghosh. “Nowadays, the ratio is closer to 20:1,” he says of the bandwagon effect with North Americans consuming more vegetable oils and less and less fish. As a result, people have turned to fish oil pills containing Omega 3 PUFA to help ‘match’ their intake of Omega 6. “The breakthrough we saw in our lab was the inflammation caused by the Omega 6 fatty ac-

To better understand the potential consequences of such fish oil supplements in the North American context, Ghosh and his research team, which includes research colleague Deanna Gibson, assistant professor of biology, fed mice a

UBC research suggests fish oil could have negative impacts rather than benefits corn oil-based diet (rich in Omega-6 PUFA). This simulated the typical North American diet to evaluate metabolic stress, gastrointestinal health and heart function. Researchers then supplemented the diet with fish oil (Omega 3 PUFA) to determine if this would reduce the damaging effects of the vegetable oil diet. Unfortunately, this strategy initiated more damage and inflammation. “But why?” says Ghosh. “Our hypothesis is that levels of Omega 6 are so high in our bodies that any more unsaturated fatty acid—even Omega 3, despite its health benefits—will actually contribute to the negative effects Omega 6 PUFA

have on the heart and gut. Bottom line is it’s too much unsaturated fat, and our body doesn’t know what to do with it.” Ghosh believes this research helps contribute to the case against a magic pill” solutions to nutrition and health.  “Here’s my opinion,” says Ghosh. “Lower intake of Omega 6 PUFA while increasing your consumption of fish and foods where Omega 3 occurs naturally, as seen with the Mediterranean diet. “Improper diet cannot be fixed by a pill. Polyunsaturated fats should be brought down in our diet, olive oil should be increased, and saturated fats should be increased— they are the most natural, and have been part of our evolution since the beginning of time.”  Ghosh’s research has been funded by the Canadian Diabetes Association since 2007. “We were the first researchers in Canada who provided evidence that excess Omega 6 fats are bad in heart disease following diabetes. That was in 2004,” says Ghosh. “My research on dietary fats over the past decade has been very innovative and, consequently, very controversial. “I am so grateful to CDA because they believed in me, supported me and enabled me to pursue my research passions.”

finance Protect yourself from identity theft

Financial planning:

Many people become victims of identity theft every year. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre reports that more than 17,000 people lost $13 million due to this type of crime in 2011 alone. It is impossible to prevent identity theft completely, but we can reduce the risks. Swindlers use the telephone, e-mail, fax, and even the regular mail to achieve their goals. Be on your guard any time you are asked for personal information, such as your name, birthdate, address, social insurance number, credit card number, or any other private information. Be cautious, ask questions, and do some research before divulging anything, especially if you didn’t initiate the contact. Your personal identification number (PIN) should never be divulged for any reason. Think about changing the PIN for your credit or debit card on a regular basis. Above all, don’t use your date of birth for your PIN. And all documents containing personal or financial information, such as bills and bank and credit card statements, should be

thoroughly shredded before they are put in the garbage or recycling. Social networks are particularly attractive to swindlers. Your new “friends” may not be as they appear. The fewer details you give about your private life, the better. Never give your telephone number or address through a social network. If you have to give personal information on the Internet, such as for the purchase of something, ensure that the site is secure. Verify that the “https://” is still present in the URL and look for the padlock icons that promise a secure Internet transaction.

Member of CDIC

Marion Henselwood, Branch Manager A few years ago, The TFSA was introduced. While many folks are using this option each year, there are still questions about what it is, and how it could form the start, or a part of your investment mix. Whatever you’re saving for, a tax-free savings account is a great option. Here are the basics you need to know: • What is a tax-free savings account (TFSA)? A TFSA is a registered savings account that allows you to earn investment income tax-free. Contributions are not deductible for tax purposes and withdrawals of contributions and earnings are not taxable. • What options do I have? The tax-free savings account provides you with plenty of options—like a high interest Tax Free Savings Account, a redeemable term deposit and a non-redeemable term deposit. Talk with your financial advisor to find out the best option for you. • Who can open a TFSA? Any individual (other than a trust) who is resident in Canada, is 18 or older and has a social insurance number can establish a TFSA at a credit union or other financial institution eligible to issue RSPs. • How much can I contribute to the TFSA each year? You are allowed to contribute $5,500 each year. If you don’t contribute $5,500 in a year, the unused amount is added to the next year’s contribution room (e.g. if you only contribute $2,500, the next

year your contribution limit will be $8,500). • How long can I carry forward unused contribution room? There is no limit on the number of years unused contribution room can be carried forward. • What happens if I contribute more than my contribution room? Excess contributions are subject to tax of one per cent per month for each month the excess remains in the plan. • Are there any restrictions on withdrawals? No, you can withdraw any amount in the account for any reason. • Do contributions and withdrawals affect my taxes? TFSA contributions are not deductible in determining income for tax purposes, and amounts earned in or withdrawn from TFSAs are not included in determining income for tax purposes. • Can I use my TFSA assets as security for a loan? Yes, you can use the TFSA assets as security for a loan. • How do I know what my TFSA contribution room is for the year? The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will determine your TFSA contribution room each year you file an income tax return. • Where can I get more information? Visit Valley First, or valleyfirst.com for more info and a complimentary financial plan.

Overcoming the Kelowna Museums celebrates new book winter blues ▼ BC DRAGOONS HISTORY

W

inter can be depressing this time of year with its longer, darker days. Seasonal affective disorder, also called winter depression, affects many of us. Women are three times more likely than men to suffer from this disorder. People who live in colder climates have a higher incidence of SAD than do FITNESS FOR those who live in warm, SENIORS sunny locations. It has also been documented that suicide rates are higher in places of increased light deprivation. Here are some tips Bobbi on overcoming the winKittle ter blues,

EAT A BALANCED HEALTHY DIET

Eating smaller meals of about 200 to 300 calories per meal throughout the day, approximately three hours apart, combining whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and good fat will help you control your cravings and stabilize your blood sugar levels. Drink eight glasses of water and don’t forget your daily vitamins. With less sunshine during the winter months, don’t forget your vitamin D.

ADD SOME COLOUR AND HAVE FUN

Wear bright colours. Studies even suggest that we feel colours more than we see them. Which colour will brighten your mood today? Be social, play and have fun. Find fun activities to do with friends, your spouse or family that lift your spirits and bring joy to your life. A happy life leads to a sound mind and a sound body.

CONSIDER A LIGHT BOX

The light from a light box mimics outdoor light. This is thought to cause a chemical change in the brain that lifts your mood and eases other symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. A light therapy box is a proven seasonal affective disorder treatment.

MANAGE STRESS BETTER WITH EXERCISE

Daily exercise combined with healthy eating can boost your energy and heighten your mood. Exercise is the recipe for a happier lifestyle. Aerobic exercise makes your heart stronger and allows it to pump more oxygen to your body. The recommendation for aerobic exercise is three to five days/ week for 30 minutes in your target heart rate zone. Strength-training will make you leaner and toned and gives the strength needed to perform everyday activities. The recommendation for strength training is two to four days/week with a rest day in between workouts.

The story of the BC Dragoons is one that spans 100 years and includes international and domestic operations from reconnaissance to assistance during natural disasters. Kelowna Museums has attempted to document that history through its new book, Always First: A Pictorial History of the BC Dragoons. Author Keith Boehmer, who is also a curatorial assistant for the Okanagan Military Museum, was on-hand to sign copies of the new book Saturday at the museum. According to Boehmer, Always First: A Pictorial History of the BC Dragoons started out as a Kelowna Museums project to use an extensive collection of images as a way of leading the reader through the 102 year history of the BC Dragoons— from horse-mounted infantry to service in Afghanistan. “Our primary audience we identified is people in the unit today and their associated family, as well as the veterans and their associated families,” said Boehmer. The author said he built upon at least 10 different previously written narratives regarding the BC Dragoons to compile the new book. Although other books have attempted to describe the history of the BC Dragoons, there were few published illustrations

He said several “enthusiastic purchasers” visited him Saturday to buy a copy of the book and have it signed. “It was a very rewarding sort of project to be able to study the photographs, listen to people’s stories, read up on the background (of) events and then try to interpret it, describe it and organize it. “It feels good to be able to have the project completed. People are accepting it and the regimental family is proud of it.” According to Lt.-Col. Nigel Whittacker, commanding officer of the BC Dragoons, there are currently 110 active members.

But the West Kelowna Residents Association knows there are many more people than that who want to see change. Last month, the WKRA asked residents to help identify gaps and problems with existing health care services on the Westside. The residents association has agreed to gather the feedback on behalf of Joanne Konnert, the consultant hired by the District of West Kelowna to prepare a report on the proposed Westside health facility. “I think Ms. Konnert is probably expecting a larger number,” said WKRA director Ron Green. “At the last public meeting we had on the subject, we had 245 people there.” Green said the responses so far have given

The West Kelowna teenager currently on trial for murder will finally tell her version of the events that left one of her peers dead, and turned a quiet Peachland street into a chaotic crime scene. The 18-year-old, whose name is under a publication ban, is alleged to have stabbed Ashlee Hyatt, 16, in her neck after an argument at a June 2, 2010, party. It’s a story that Crown counsel Murray Kaay assembled a number of witnesses to tell from varying angles, but defence lawyer Ingrid Friesen pointed out Friday that none of those viewpoints added up to a complete picture. “You as a jury will be the first to hear her side of the story—she wants very much to tell it,” Friesen told a B.C. Supreme Court jury Friday. “She’s been waiting two years to tell it.” The accused, who defence described as a “new girl trying to fit in at a new school,” has seen her point of view be absent in the last two weeks of trial, as even RCMP officers who dealt with the investigation failed to offer her perspective on what happened that night. What the jury has learned from teen witnesses who were there, however, is that the accused kissed a boy, while her boyfriend was nearby. This apparently upset Hyatt and the two started exchanging verbal barbs, which escalated to further pushing on the street, and eventually Hyatt was fatally wounded. Continuing on with the altercation, however, was the teenage host of the party. The defence has already suggested she was the one who brought the knife to the fight between the accused and Hyatt, and Friday two witnesses took the witness stand to highlight the teenage host’s behaviour in the aftermath and leading up to the fatal altercation. They also called upon George Young, who lives adjacent to the party house, to give testimony. Young testified he was brought into the fray when he heard a teenage boy in the street talking into his cellphone, saying, “It’s going down, it’s going down, it’s happening now.”

he day’s last light was fading and the first flakes of snow were falling outside the window, when a large black bear came ambling down the slope into the flower bed. There he began vigorously digging a hole, tossing plants aside as he went. A loud rap on the window sent him scurrying through the trees to the road, but the damage had been done in the garden. What if someone had come around the corner of the house and surprised that big animal? Others tell of watching as a large black bear ambled up their residential street, systematically exploring every driveway for garbage bins left out or other treats to eat, knocking over bins and laying down in the mess of trash in the road, while chewing on whatever was available.

Measuring your heart disease risk A re you worried about heart disease? We all should be concerned since heart disease is our number one risk of disability and death. According to Statistics Canada, deaths due to heart and blood vessel diseases account for 36.2 per cent of all deaths in Canada. By measuring your heart disease risk you will be able to take action and avoid this serious health risk. Hard and inflexible blood vessels increase the risk of heart disease. Activities as simple as lifting a box, straining in the bathroom, or even a minor fall can break an inflexible blood vessel. A broken blood vessel may cause a blood clot to

By measuring your heart nutrient levels you will be able to focus on taking the supplements you need. Cholesterol is a building block for hormones and for parts of our bodies such as our brains. Many doctors focus on cholesterol as the only risk factor for heart disease, but this is incomplete. High levels of the cholesterol known as low density lipids (LDL) in our blood can be a problem, but the condition of our LDL is far more important.

Free radicals are unbalanced chemical structures that literally burn our bodies, and can be measured as oxidative stress. Free radicals are absorbed by LDL cholesterol, making it unusable as a building block and making it sticky. Sticky LDL will increase your risk of forming cholesterol plaques and blocking an artery. Chemicals in our blood associated with increased heart disease risk include apolipoprotein B, homocysteine, and cystatin C. Dietary supplements, such as the B vitamins will help to lower these risk factors. The apolipoprotein A1 is associated with good heart health, and it will increase with exercise. Inflammation is a healing response,

but when out of control it may increase your risk of heart disease. Inflammation occurs in blood vessels with poorly healed injuries, infections, and reactions to toxins. Fibrinogen is an inflammatory marker that, when elevated, increases your risk of forming blood clots. Metabolic enzymes, along with treatments to solve the cause of inflammation, will normalize fibrinogen levels. Heart disease is the number one health risk we all face.

Letters are going out to more than 38,000 people in B.C. whose personal data was copied onto a data stick and shared without permission last year. That medical record data breach led the health ministry to fire seven health ministry staff and contractors involved in patient research related to approval of drugs for B.C.’s Pharmacare program. There were no names attached to the health data, which included personal health numbers, gender, date of birth and postal codes, as well as information from Statistics Canada’s Canadian community health survey. The data did include hospital admissions and

The Statistics Canada survey included information about patient health status, mental, physical and sexual health, lifestyle information and use of health services. Three separate breaches of ministry privacy policy have been identified so far. None included names, social insurance numbers or financial information, and no evidence has been found that the information was used for anything other than medical research. An internal ministry and police investigation is ongoing. Most of the fired employees and contractors have identified themselves publicly, and at least one has filed a wrongful dismissal lawsuit.

Johnston matures into ‘solid’ blue liner

Warren Henderson

w s s w t n

STAFF REPORTER

When the Kelowna Rockets announced earlier this month that an injury had ended Mitchell Chapman’s season, MacKenzie Johnston suddenly became the senior member of the Western Hockey League’s defensive corps. For someone who feels like his junior career just began yesterday, Johnston’s new role has been an eye-opener—albeit an exciting one. “Coming into the league, you never look at being one of the ‘old’ guys, you never see it coming, and then ‘boom’, it hits you,” said Johnston, 19, a native of Swift Current, Sask. “Knowing Mitchell was gone was tough, and I knew I’d have to step it up. At first I felt some pressure, but then knowing how good our back end is, I didn’t have to take it all on myself. I’m just playing my game and really having a lot of fun right now.” Considering how his Rockets are ripping up the WHL this season, it’s no secret why Johnston is enjoying playing the game like never before. But the road to today hasn’t always been a smooth one for the 6-foot2, 196-pound Johnston, who was listed by the Rockets during the 200809 season. Johnston credits the coaching staff for helping him refine his game. “As a 16-year-old I think I made some strides, but in my 17-year-old season I had some rough patches, then I kind of struggled at the start of last year, too,” Johnston said. “But the team stuck with me, the coaches really helped me worked through things and now I’m feeling a lot more comfortable about my game. It’s tough to know

MACKENZIE JOHNSTON, the most veteran defenceman on the Kelowna Rockets, has impressed the WHL club with his steady play this season. where you’re going to be when you come in at 16, but looking back I feel like I’m in a pretty good spot.” Like many of his teammates, Johnston is enjoying a career season, with three goals, 16 points and a plus-26 rating in 30 games. Since returning from a lower body injury on Dec. 27, Johnston is an eye-popping plus-22 in 15 games. Rockets’ assistant coach Dan Lambert said Johnston’s game has come a long way since those first tentative shifts in the 2009-10 season. “He has matured into a really steady defenseman for us,” said Lambert. “He plays key minutes for us against the other team’s

top lines, and he uses his stick really well defensively. He’s not the most physical guy, but his style works well for him and he’s very effective with it.” While Johnston may not provide the same flair or offensive skills as some of his younger teammates—such as Madison Bowey and Jesse Lees— Lambert said the Saskatchewan product sets a strong example with his work ethic and leadership skills. “Over the years, MacKenzie has gotten a lot stronger, he works hard off the ice and he’s in great shape,” Lambert added. “Because of his experience, our guys really do look up to him. The organization has stuck

with MacKenzie and it’s really paid off in this situation. He’s turned into a very solid player.” Aside from his personal growth as a player, Johnston is, not surprisingly, thrilled with his team’s incredible and unexpected run of success this season. And while it’s important to appreciate their current prosperity, Johnston said the club’s day-to-day focus needs to remain on the straight and narrow. “It’s been an amazing run, it’s not something I think anyone expected,” he said. “But we can’t get too caught up in it, we need to make sure we’re working the same everyday, coming to the rink and preparing the best we

can. No one is going to hand it to us, so every time we win at home, it’s kind of refreshed in our minds. As a team, we feel like the bond is getting stronger and stronger and we want to keep this going.”

The West Kelowna Warriors suffered their first BCHL regulation loss of 2013 on Saturday, falling 2-1 to the Vees in Penticton. West Kelowna had a 1-0 lead in the game, thanks to a Marcus Basara tally just 1:38 in. However, the Vees would escape with the win thanks to forward Cody DePourcq, who notched the equalizer midway through the second period and then found the winner late in the third. Final shots counted 36-21 in favour of the Vees, with Warriors netminder Tyler Briggs named the second star. DePourcq was the first star of the game, with Troy Stecher named the third star. “I don’t think we can

Heat men push No. 2-rankedT’Birds The UBC Okanagan Heat couldn’t find a solution for the powerhouse UBC Thunderbirds, but it wasn’t for a lack of effort or a shortage of hometown support. Heat head coach Pete Guarasci had praise for both the fans and his players, as the T’Birds (14-2) swept a pair of Canada West men’s games over the weekend at The Furnace. “I know our guys performed and fed off the crowd,” said Guarasci, in his first season as Heat head coach. “Really good fan support all weekend. If we can get that kind of fan support every home game, our guys love it, they feed off it, and I guarantee you that kind of support will end up every year with two or three extra wins just by having them there.”

The Heat took the T’Birds to the wire on Friday and looked poised to pull and upset before going down to defeat in a low-scoring affair, 63-61. David Wagner’s buzzer beater for UBC prevented the Heat from upsetting the No. 2 nationally-ranked UBC squad. “I think our guys just put on a defensive show,” Guarasci said. “From our point guard to our fiveman, everyone was moving their feet. We were hustling and we were battling. They were just so focused defensively. It was awesome for me to watch.” Mitch Goodwin was named the Heat player of the game after netting a team-high tying 13 points, while grabbing three rebounds. Fourth-year guard Yassine Ghomari also put up

Heat loses Klomps to ankle injury, drops two to UBC

It turned out be a sweep at the hands of the No. 1 team in the nation, but coach Steve Manuel continues to see progress from his UBC Okanagan Heat women’s volleyballl squad. The Heat (11-7) suffered their first defeats of 2013 in Canada West play, losing a pair of matches to UBC (17-1) at the Vancouver campus. On Friday, the Heat also lost second-year middle Katy Klomps to an ankle injury, then fell to the T’Birds in straight sets (25-17, 25-20, 25-17). Without Klomps, who is arguably one of the top two middles in the nation, the Heat back-court was left exposed. “It didn’t take long to know that it was going to be one of those tough nights,” Manuel said after the game. “It’s never easy playing against the top offense in the country, especially after losing the leading blocker in Canada West.” On the bright side, Brianna Beamish continued her strong play, coming off the bench in relief to collect six kills on 14 attempts for a solid .286 kill percentage. On Saturday, with Klomps on the sidelines, UBC won in another Ssweep (25-12, 25-19, 25-

Kaitlynn Given added three kills on six attempts, as the young stars of the Heat showed up to play. “Megan and Kaitlynn were fearless out there,” Manuel said. “We just continue to improve as a program with such young, bright talent.”

Speaking of young talent, Emily Oxland continues to play like anything but a rookie. The young setter has played outstanding for the Heat this season in guiding one of the most dynamic offenses in Canada. This weekend, Feb. 1 and 2, the Heat hit the road as they travel east to take on Manitoba Bisons and Winnipeg Wesmen. The UBC Okanagan men put up a fight but couldn’t handle their UBC counterparts in Canada West men’s volleyball action, On Friday at War Memorioal, the Heat had an opportunity to win the second and third sets but came up short as the Thunderbirds scored a straight-set win (25-18, 26-24, 26-24). Second-year middle Leo Schober had a solid game by any standard as The former KSS Owl had six kills on nine attempts, while hybrid outside hitter/setter Jon Russo posted seven kills on 13 attempts after coming off the bench in relief.

TAKOFF, GRAHAM JOSEPH 1932 to 2013 Graham passed away peacefully on January 20th, 2013 after his six year struggle with Alzheimer Disease. He is survived by his loving wife Jane (nee Kerry), son Brian (Laurie), daughter Maureen, granddaughter Evelynn, brother in-law and sister in-law Bill and Betty Anne Greenwood, extended family and numerous brothers, sisters, nephews, and nieces in BC, Alberta, and Ontario. He is sadly predeceased by his eldest son Michael. Born and raised in Toronto, Graham joined the Navy at the age of 18, where he met his beautiful wife to be Jane. He then worked for Marconi in Northern Canada on the DEW line, for Household Finance, and eventually became the owner and publisher of the Kelowna Capital News until he retired in 1993. Graham was a respected and well liked businessman, a long-time member of the Kelowna Golf and Country Club, an active member of the Kelowna Club, and an avid skier at Big White. He was a founding sponsor and promoter of the Black Mountain Rodeo, loved playing pool, and he even tried his hand at gold prospecting.

DULEY, KATHERINE LEE

(nee Kanigan) October 2, 1956 - January 22, 2013 It is with profound sadness that we announce Kathy’s passing after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. She passed peacefully at home with her family by her side. She graduated from Kelowna Secondary School achieving high academic standards. She excelled as an athlete, where she developed strong friendships with her teammates who have remained by her side throughout her life. Kathy furthered her education, graduating with strong competency in French, Russian, Spanish, and English. She devoted many years as an inspiring teacher. Kathy was positive, energetic, wise, and loving in all that she did and practiced inclusivity with those around her. She was as passionate with her plants as she was with her ideologies of social justice. Her lasting friendships with family and friends truly reflected the friend she was. Kathy was predeceased by her father, Harry. Surviving is her loving husband Mike of 31 years, her children Shayla and Rylan, loving mother Elizabeth, sister Lori (Hayden, Landyn), brother Fred and wife Josie (Denika, Hailey), along with numerous family and friends. A service was held on January 25 with a pending announcement for a Celebration of Life. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements. As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Food Bank of your choice would be appreciated. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at www.myalternatives.ca.

Midnight is a black handsome fellow, with a laid back personality. He would be a great companion for those who want a big cuddlier. Midnight enjoys his comfortable bed where he likes to be calm and watch his surroundings. He is a little shy but once you get the treats out he is your best friend! He enjoys cuddles and head butts. He would be the perfect companion to cuddle with on a cold winter night. If you feel that you have the time and home to offer Midnight, we would love to introduce you to him. Please speak to the Shelter Staff. 

Dogs who do not have adequate shelter can succumb to frostbite and hypothermia, and even die.

DONNER ID#287196

Donner is a very handsome dog who will be a welcome addition to any family. We do not know anything about his background, but we do know that he is a love. Even thought he is a big boy, he does not like to spend long periods of time outside alone. He would quickly become a loyal and dedicated companion. He is good with some other dogs, but he is discriminatory on which ones he likes. We currently have him mixed with Bob, a pit bull puppy and they get along great. So if you are contemplating adding him to a family with an existing dog, it is imperative that you bring in your current dog to do a “meet and greet”. We have to be sure they get along before bringing Donner to his new home. Donner loves to play in our backyard and thoroughly enjoys playing fetch. Donner will make a wonderful addition to a family who knows the breed.

ADULT DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR CROSS NEUTERED MALE

I am a very handsome fellow with some special needs. I will have to be on urinary food for my entire life. This issue is very easily controlled by special food you can purchase at a VET for me to eat every day and only that food. Please don’t let that small flaw drive you away from me because I am the friendliest, most handsome orange kitty out there! My cute little snaggletooth gives me some spunk. I love head buts and to be fussed about with lots of attention. My favorite past time is hanging out in paper bags. I love being petted and loved.

If you would like a young, mellow but playful kitten come to the Kelowna SPCA and ask to meet Patches.

Lacey is a friendly dog who enjoys her car rides. She has had no formal obedience classes, but listens well and knows how to “shake two paws”. She is quite shy at first meeting, but quickly bonds to her caregivers. Lacey can be intimated by some more powerful men because of her past history, but she does respond to all people who give her the love she wants and needs. She has her favourite pillow which she lays her head on when she is sleeping on the couch. Once Lacey comes out of her shell, she is a playful, active, outgoing and affectionate dog.

Hi there…my name is Sophia. I was brought into the shelter so I could have a better life than on the streets. I am a little unsure of things, and might not ever be a lap cat… but I deserve a home that I can call my own. If you are looking for an indoor/outdoor cat, then I would be a good decision. Please ask staff about me.

Hi, my name is Misty. My previous owners were moving and could not take me with them, so they brought me to the SPCA for me to find a new, loving and forever home. I am a sweet cat that likes to cuddle in a cozy spot. I am a little shy, but with enough affection I will be your best friend. I just need a home that is quiet and calm and I bet you before too long, I will be sleeping on the couch next to you watching our favorite TV show. Please give me a chance to love you. I am just very scared here with all the commotion.

ADULT HUSKY CROSS ROTTWEILER NEUTERED MALE

“Stark” came to the Shelter as an unclaimed stray and we are now looking for the right home for this high-energy dog. He loves to run and play ‘catch me if you can’ games, so it is IMPERATIVE that you keep Stark on a leash at all times until you take him to some obedience classes. He does love attention and once he burns off his energy, he does settle down and just lay there wanting you to pet him. We do not recommend he go to a home with smaller children nor cats because of his high prey drive. If you are a household that likes to hike, bike or jog, this might just be the dog you have been looking for. He is definitely house trained. Stark enjoys the snow and trying to find his toys that are buried underneath.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen hearts love apples February is apple month, and also heart month. Both are about food, and apples are one good food choice to help keep your heart healthy. Substitutions in cooking meals are one way to handle your health issues without impacting those around you quite so much. So if a recipe calls for butter, and you’ve been advised to watch your intake of high cholesterol foods, you may wish to substitute a soft margarine; or where a recipe calls for a high fat cheese, which is also high in cholesterol, you may substitute a low-fat cheese product. The same advice applies to other dairy products such as whipped cream and sour cream. Fat-free yogurt often makes a good substitute for high-fat sour cream. Scientists tell us that apples contain not only nutrients such as calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, vitamins A, C, B6, folate, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin, but also a significant portion of fibre, and phytonutrients which have been found to lower blood cholesterol. The consumption of apples has been linked with reduced cancer risk, improved lung health, less heart disease and strokes and lower cholesterol. They're also a fat-free, salt-free, crunchy snack that comes already packaged to take with you wherever you go. You'll find that retail stores will be featuring B.C. apples this month, and for a terrific selection of different varieties of apples sold right where they're specially stored for winter, go to the Okanagan Tree Fruit Cooperative store on Clement Avenue in Kelowna's north end. Although apples are a fruit, don't stop at serving them for snacks and desserts. They're also delicious in a salsa with a pork roast or in salads such as the old standby Waldorf Salad. If we don't support our local orchardists and other farmers we could see orchards replaced with hog farms or chicken pens. Our landscape could be quite different. At the same time, we would have to purchase our apples and other tree fruits from other corners of the world; corners where we won't have any control over the pesticides or procedures used to grow and package our fruit. Food freshness and food security are issues we all should think about every time we purchase what we eat. For more apple recipes and ideas for other locally-grown fruit pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, wherever books are sold.

Apple & Berry Crisp Everyone makes fruit crisps, but this is the perfect recipe for an easy, crisp, but goodfor-you topping, over a tangy, fruit-flavoured, gooey mass of fruit. Try different berries in this: cranberries, blueberries, raspberries or strawberries, or use a bit of rhubarb. Get in touch with your creative side. 4 c. (1 l) apples 1 c. (250 ml) berries 1/2 c. (125 ml) brown sugar 1/2 c. (125 ml) whole wheat flour 1/2 c. (125 ml) oatmeal 1 tsp. (5 ml) cinnamon 1 tsp. (5 ml) nutmeg 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) cloves

1/4 tsp. (1 ml) allspice 1/3 c. (75 ml) butter Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Grease a square pan, 8x8x2 inches. Peel and core about four medium-sized tart apples and slice them into the pan. Top with whole fresh or frozen berries. Don’t use sweetened berries. Soften butter and mix remaining ingredients thoroughly; then sprinkle over fruit. Bake 30 minutes or until fruit is tender and topping is golden brown. Serve warm and, if desired, with light cream or ice cream. Serves 6.

These are just a delectable dessert, much of which can be made ahead, so you’re not busy in the kitchen between dinner and dessert, leaving your company to fend for themselves. And, this is a stunning presentation. ¼ c. (60 ml) currants ¼ c. (60 ml) rum or water 2 c. (500 ml) dry red wine 1½ c. (375 ml) sugar 3 cinnamon sticks 6 to 8 cloves 6 pepper corns 6 Anjou pears ½ c. (125 ml) cream cheese Soak washed currants in rum or water for up to four hours. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Remove cream cheese from the fridge to soften and come to room temperature. In saucepan, over medium heat, combine wine, sugar, cinnamon sticks, cloves and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, stirring occa-

sionally. Set aside. Select pears that are slightly under-ripe rather than over-ripe. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the skin from each pear, leaving the stem in place. Using a melon baller and starting from the blossom end of the pear, scoop out the core and seeds, leaving a neat hollow. Discard the core. Lay whole, cored pears in a baking dish so they do not overlap. Add the spiced wine and bake, uncovered, basting every 10 minutes. When they start to soften, gently turn them over and continue roasting and basting until tender, being careful not to overcook them. Cool. While pears are in the oven, drain currants and mix into softened cream cheese. When pears are cool, gently stuff the hollowed out centre with the cheese/currant blend. Thicken the wine sauce by boiling down to half volume. Set each pear in a small serving bowl and top with sauce. Serves 6.

There are some basics about my cooking that you should know about in using the recipes created for Jude’s Kitchen. *I mean a large egg when a recipe calls for an egg *usually, butter and margarine are interchangeable *usually, salt and pepper is added to your taste *I generally use sea salt

*fresh ingredients top frozen or canned *organic products are my first choice *wherever possible, I use whole grains, not processed *include a variety of them, when possible *wherever possible, I use fresh herbs *fewer quantities of dried herbs are needed than fresh
