A whole lot of snow this week and last week was followed by rain at mid-day Thursday. More rain is expected on the weekend as temperatures in the city are expected to rise to highs of 3C today, 1C Saturday and 2C Sunday. Hopefully the warmer weather won’t make too much of a mess out of lovely winter scenes such as this one in Kiwanis Park. Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Lakecity joins Turn Down the Heat campaign This coming week lakecity residents and businesses are being asked to bundle up, turn down the heat and donate a sweater or jacket to someone in need. It’s all part of the inaugural Turn Down the Heat Campaign Feb. 2 to 9 initiated by FortisBC and Business Improvement Areas of British Columbia. The one-week challenge to turn down the heat at work and at home could play a big part in energy conversation and if you keep it up – just watch the energy bills go down, say organizers. The project has the enthusiastic support of 19 business improvement associations from Vancouver Island to the Mainland, including

the Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Area Association. The Turn Down the Heat campaign is all about encouraging people to turn down the heat and layer up. Put on a sweater, add a hoodie, double up your t-shirts – layering is the new cool, organizers say. In addition to creating more awareness about energy consumption and what can be done to reduce it, the additional goal is to collect 2,500 sweaters for those less fortunate, say organizers. The Williams Lake DBIA has 14 businesses that will be accepting donations of sweaters and jackets for children to be distrib-

uted by the Child Development Centre and for adults to be distributed to the Canadian Mental Health Association. “Our goal is to collect a minimum of 225 sweaters,” says WLCBIA president Sheila Mortensen. She says gently used sweaters and jackets and even hats, scarves and mitts will be accepted to help families in the community that are struggling financially. She encourages all businesses and homeowners in Williams Lake join the downtown businesses in the campaign. “We will all be wearing sweaters to promote energy efficiency,” Mortensen says. In Williams Lake sweaters and

This is the first time business improvement associations have come together collaboratively to work on a project province wide at the same time. It is an exciting opportunity to make a difference and promote such an important message of energy conservation, say organizers.

United Way raises $97,600 for Cariboo projects Sponsors and service providers gathered at the Williams Lake and District Credit Union last week to celebrate the United Way and its contributions to those in need in the Williams Lake and 100 Mile House areas. Cake was served to celebrate the raising of $97,600 by corporate sponsors in the Cariboo last year between Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. Dr. Ray Sanders, the only Cariboo director with the Thompson Nicola Cariboo United Way, said he believes in the United Way and what it does to help families in our communities. “I like it because all the money raised in the Cariboo, stays in the Cariboo, which is really important,” Sanders says. “The needs are great here and we don’t want to be forgotten.” Members of a local community impact council decide on which project applications from non-profit groups are approved for funding. The United Way also has an emergency fund which helps with unforeseen needs such as the hotel fire in Williams Lake last year which displaced families. Sanders also congratulates Melissa Newberry, the United Way’s representative in the Williams Lake/100 Mile House area for raising the profile of the United Way in this region. Newberry represents

Williams Lake Weekend Friday, February 1, 2013

So how are those New Year Resolutions coming along? I worked my way up from a short run, to a long run, to a full out ten minute island run on Wii Fit Plus and was feeling beyond impressed with myself, until I picked up a book by Scott Jurek titled “Eat and Run”. Turns out it’s not about fast food. Scott Jurek is an ultra marathoner. He is one of an elite group of athletes that see half marathons as mere pre-breakfast jaunts. At the end of a full marathon they are just getting warmed up. The runs that capture the interest of an ultra marathoner are anywhere from 100 to 150 miles in length. The book opens with Scott sprawled

on the floor of Death Valley. He’s attempting to run the Badwater Ultra-Marathon, it’s an hour before midnight and the temperature (as he puts it) is “105 incinerating, soul-sucking degrees” (which translates to just over 40 incinerating, soul-sucking degrees Celsius). And this at 11 pm! One can only imagine what it must be like in the afternoon. Scott has just run 70 miles “through a place where others had died walking” and has 65 more to go. The book is an amazing testimony to what the human body and mind are capable of. How they let us down and how they get us back up again. Scott, by his own admission, was never

physically gifted, but somehow he went on to win multiple marathons, and to set course records while doing so. He would often hear competitors say in bewilderment, “I can’t believe that guy beat me.” While lifestyle and fitness obviously play an important role in winning races, a huge factor is what takes place between our ears. So much of becoming healthy, phys-

ically fit and even winning marathons, is a result of the voice inside our heads rather than any particular physical prowess. We do things—or don’t do things—simply because we think we can or can’t. Eat and Run; My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness is part biography, part running tips and part cookbook (Scott’s recipe for green lentil and mushroom burgers is worth the price of the book alone).Whether you think he is running from something, to something, or simply running for the love of the run, his story is inspiring, exciting and makes a great post-resolution read. No one has ever

accused me of being athletic, but looking back, I did have one near brush with glory. As my mother tells it, I was three years old and in a preschool foot race at a community picnic. To everyone’s great surprise I set off at a blinding pace. By the time I headed into the final bend I was a good quarter track ahead of all my running mates. Parents cheered as my little legs pumped for all they were worth. No one could catch me. Victory was mine. And then I stopped. Not understanding finish lines or the importance of colour coded ribbons, I realized my best friend was no longer running beside me, so I waited for her to catch up. Even when I un-

AN APPLE A DAY... Breast cancer doesn’t affect only older women. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends that women between the ages of 40 and 49 talk to their doctors about breast cancer screening. For women aged 50 to 70, mammograms are recommended every two years. Women over 70 should speak to their doctors about screening frequency. With all the talk about pollution from hydrocarbons, it’s comforting to know that a product with the name “white petrolatum” is free from any impurities that may cause cancer. This product has been around for over 150 years. We know it as its brand name, Vaseline. The internet makes shopping very easy and more people are doing their buying this way. However, buying drugs on-line is not recommended. There have been many reports about counterfeit drugs being sold on-line and the purchaser has no idea whether the label indicates what is truly in the bottle or not. Don’t take chances with your health. With all the publicity surrounding calcium during the past year, many people are wondering if they should take this mineral at all. The best source of calcium is from our diet. But if you are not a dairy product or vegetable consumer, you can safely supplement with up to 1000 mg per day. Check with our pharmacists. For answers to your questions about calcium or any product in our pharmacy, talk to our pharmacists. They are always ready to serve you.

derstood the concept, competitive sports still messed me up. Sometimes the family refuses to play board games with me because I have been known to cheat. Not to win, but to lose. I’ll quickly roll the dice pretending I don’t see their marker beside my hotel on Park Place. I still want everyone to cross the finish line together. Even when Canada takes the hockey gold — and I realize this borders on treason — I can’t help looking at the regret and tears on the faces of the team that took silver and feeling badly for them. Sure, I’d feel more badly if the Canadians were the ones looking sad, but there you have it.

That sort of attitude may be kind hearted, but it’s not very inspiring. I once read a quote that contained the words “Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you... we all have greatness in us, and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” It’s true. After reading Scott’s story I stood up, snapped on the Wii and set it for a 30 minute run. Triple my usual time. And I did it! A laughable feat compared to an Ultra-Marathoner, but a feet feat for me just the same.

HEALTH, MIND & BODY The dirt on healthy eating LINDA BOYD Community Nutritionist SELENA DEVRIES Dietetic Intern with Interior Health Keep Healthy Eating on Track It’s a new year and you’ve made a pact to eat healthy. But, now it’s almost a month later and you’re losing steam. So, what can you do to get back on track? First of all, it’s important to approach healthy eating in a realistic manner. Restricting foods, labelling foods as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, and

not eating enough food can wreak havoc on your body – emotionally and physically. It can lead to feelings of deprivation, overeating, and a resounding amount of guilt that can lead you back to square one. Instead, focus on small changes, healthy foods that you enjoy, and take the time to create a support system to help maintain lifelong healthy eating habits. Three tips to stay on track with healthy eating: Be Realistic. Trying to tackle too much at

once can be overwhelming. Big things happen when small, sustainable changes are repeated over a lifetime. By including a fruit at breakfast or an extra vegetable at dinner, you can achieve large goals over time. Choose actions that are relatively easy to fit into your day on an ongoing basis. Focus on the Positive. All too often, resolutions can leave you feeling deprived. Try reframing your resolutions to focus on things you will enjoy. Rather than restricting your favorite

Water use reduced Williams Lake residents have reduced water use by 20 per cent since 2006, says the latest report from the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society. The report was prepared to assess the work of the Water Wise education program, a partnership between the city and the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society. City council received the report at its regular meeting last week. In the summer of 2006, the city entered into a fee for service agreement to educate the public on the benefits of conserving water in the community. The Cariboo Conservation Society achieved this by hosting large public events, such as Earth Day, radio and newspaper ads, displays set up at public buildings including the Cariboo Memorial Recreation

Complex and city hall, children’s day camps, and provided a very comprehensive education program in the public school system with emphasis on the primary grades three and four. Through this educational program the city and the Cariboo Conservation Society’s intentions were to reduce the amount of water the community was using for its day-to-day use, which in turn would reduce the stress being put on the aquifer that the city draws its water from. In order to assist the conservation effort, the city has offered residents rebates on low-flow toilets and water-efficient washing machines and dishwashers, which have seen a high rate of interest. The reduction in water use is among all users — industrial, commercial, institutional,

and residential— but it cannot be determined where the largest reduction in daily usage is, as not all water services are metered. However, it has been suggested that the industrial, commercial, and institutional sectors of any community do not use any more water than they need to complete their operation. Assuming this is correct, the lion’s share of water reduction is from the residential users, according to a city press release. “It is clear from the water reduction numbers that this educational partnership is working,” says Mayor Cook. “Council thanks the Cariboo Chilcotin Conversation Society and city staff for all their work on the Water Wise program, and to all water users who have reduced their consumption in order to protect this most precious resource.”

foods, try incorporating healthier foods that you enjoy more often and have fun trying some new foods too. Getting a new cookbook might serve as a special reward for yourself as well as an inspiration. Find Support. Don’t try to do it alone! Talk to your friends and family about the changes you’d like to make. You may be surprised to learn that others want to join you as you strive to make healthier choices at home, work, school

and play. Invite family members to plan a weekly menu together so that everyone feels part of the changes.

Thefts keep RCMP busy Stolen vehicles and break and enters kept Williams Lake RCMP busy over the weekend as they responded to around 60 calls. Jan. 25 At 11:32 p.m. police received a call from Emergency Health Services and the fire department reporting that a male was suffering from smoke inhalation. Police attended a residence on Yorston Street and spoke to fire department members. As it turned out one of the male occupants in the apartment

The Phantom of the Four-Floor Furniture Store WILLIAMS LAKE, BC - On Wednesday January 30th, 2013 several witnesses reported seeing a man in the upstairs window of Laketown Furnishings in the middle of the night. These people stated that the man wore tattered clothing and that he appeared very disturbed. One person said he resembled a prisoner clutching the bars of his cell and shaking them violently. When I asked the other witnesses whether they also perceived a similar image, one aged man recalled an old legend about a notorious prisoner who disappeared under mysterious circumstances back in the days

before the building became a furniture store. “Old Jedidiah was the baddest man in the whole darn town”, recalled the witness, “and Jed, he swore revenge on everyone he saw when they took him in. Yep, he was sure something. Everyone around could hear him yelling and screaming all night long. Then one night the yelling just stopped, and no one knew what happed to him. They never found him. Some folks think maybe he tried to escape and

got lost in that old building. Heck I don’t know, maybe he’s still in there. It’s like a giant maze in that place.”

the confines of Laketown Furnishings, but no one was willing to speak about it. Bob Sunner stated that, “There are no ghosts, apparitions or phantoms at Laketown Furnishings. I repeat there are no ghosts living in our store.

We asked the new occupants of the building whether they were aware of any strange occurrences within

Have a nice day!” While I cannot personally verify or discount this story I will continue to investigate the phenomena and report on this Laketown mystery.

• Review documents before signing, double checking calculations to ensure it is the same amount as agreed on • Arrange a re-inspection of the property prior to closing to avoid any nasty surprises • On or after closing day, buyers have less leverage to demand promised repairs to be completed • Arrange to have utilities changed into your name at least one week prior to closing date • Arrange for your home insurance to start on the day of closing

Seller preparations:

• Avoid closing on a Friday, the end of the month or before a long weekend • Arrange to have utilities transferred or terminated out of your name • Adjustments to consider -

Property taxes

-

Income earned from rental properties – damage deposit

-

Condo fees or trailer pad rent

-

Prepaid propane remaining in tank

“It’s funny how a newborn can change your perspective on everything, ...that’s why we have life insurance through Western Financial Group.” To get a quick quote visit or call:

With enough preparation, closing day should be the beginning of a new chapter for buyer and seller in their new homes!

New season for ‘School Wars’

B.C. VIEWS TOM FLETCHER

Like a bad reality show about a dysfunctional family, “B.C. School Wars” has lurched to life again for the 2013 election. Coming soon to billboards and buses across the province: staged pictures of sad-faced kids crammed into dirty classrooms by a heartless government.  It doesn’t even matter which government. This ritual combat went on through Social Credit and NDP governments too. Premier Christy Clark opened the new season with her promised pitch to restructure bargaining. It suggested splitting up bargaining into traditional wage and benefit talks, and a separate table and fund for classroom size and support. Cast in her familiar role of the sullen, rebellious teenager, BCTF president Susan Lambert staged a news conference to distort and mock the government’s offer. A 10-year deal if we give up bargaining wages and classroom conditions? “Ludicrous.” What’s ludicrous is her characterization of a formula to link teacher pay to nurses, post-secondary faculty and other government workers. Nurses are renowned for getting raises when no one else does, so this should be an opportunity for these

powerful unions to co-ordinate. But the BCTF can’t get along with other unions any more than it can negotiate with any discernible competence.  Lambert falsely claimed there was no consultation on the proposal. This reminded me how she low-balled the costs of her union’s demands by hundreds of millions during what passed for negotiations in last year’s strike season.  Behind the scenes, the BCTF executive and the school district bargaining agent had just settled on

a mutual costing model. What this means is the school districts, which have to make payroll and balance budgets, have convinced the BCTF to stop misrepresenting costs. I’ll believe that when I see it. Before Education Minister Don McRae had even spoken, BCTF vice-president Glen Hansman was growling his reply on Twitter: See you in court. That message presumably also goes for premierin-waiting Adrian Dix, unless he replaces the hated B.C. Liberals in May, then quickly kneels before the BCTF and extends the key

to the provincial treasury. Two generations of British Columbians have been bullied by this bad drama, since Bill Vander Zalm decided an industrial union bargaining structure was just the ticket for public schools. Students are taught by example, if not by blatant propaganda in classrooms, that all problems are solved by demanding more money from the government. After this conditioning, older students are sometimes pressed into service as union pickets. There’s your Social Justice class, kids. Sorry

about those sports teams and field trips, but we need those as bargaining chips to get more paid leave time. To state the obvious, Clark and McRae staged this as a pre-election event to frame the issue. They knew their effort would be greeted as a declaration of war. The main reason the BCTF agreed to a contract extension with a wage freeze last year? It wasn’t the blindingly obvious fact that every other public sector union had already taken two zeroes. It was strictly tactics.

The delay sets up the latest rematch of these old warriors in the spring election. The plan is to get the dreaded B.C. Liberals out and then start working over the weaker, more union-dependent NDP. That’s who caved in earlier and gave the BCTF broad control over staffing levels, the proverbial key to the treasury. Along with basic math and economics, a point the BCTF seems unable to grasp is that its strategy is self-defeating. Those sad kids are making more and more parents seek a better deal.

Williams Lake Weekend Friday, February 1, 2013

www.wltribune.com A11

Where to go, what to do. Film club screens Aguiree Tuesday KRISTA LIEBE The Williams Lake Film Club will present its next film Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the Gibraltar Room. We will be bringing you a very special film, Aguiree, a classic that catapulted director Werner Herzog into film world attention. It was his first big film (1973), and still is one of the very best. Herzog did not have much money and actually stole the camera from the film institute he was studying at. All the finances he

managed to raise was $370,000. a third of which went to Klaus Kinski, the only wellknown star in the film. And he truly is incredible, becoming one of Herzog’s special characters he worked with in future films. Most of the others were extras, mostly Peruvian Indios. The filming took place in the deepest jungle of Peru and the Amazons, and yes, Herzog confirmed that he threatened Kinski with a handgun if he would not finish the film. I met Herzog at a seminar in Edmonton where

he confirmed quite a few of the wildest rumours. But as he said — what else could he do? The story of the film is based on a conquest and on the diary of a priest who accompanied Aguiree. In the mid-16th century, after annihilating the Incan empire, Gonzalo Pizarro leads his army of conquistadors over the Andes into the heart of the most savage environment on earth in search of the fabled city of gold, El Dorado. As the soldiers battle starvation, Indians, the forces of nature, and

by RH2 Foods. This is an open event and TRU graciously invites the public to attend. Library Armchair Travel to Quebec City The Williams Lake Library Armchair Travel presentation continues tonight, Jan. 31 with a presentation by Barbara Bearman on her visit to old Quebec City, starting at 7 p.m. Take a walk with her around old Que-

bec City and view historical sites such as the Plains of Abraham, the site of the first settlement, the cliffside railway tram, and cobblestoned streets.

each other, Don Lope de Aguirre, “The Wrath of God” in his own words, is consumed with visions of conquering all of South America, and revolts against Pizarro, leading his own group down a treacherous river on a doomed quest into oblivion. What makes it even more stunning is that he has his 15 year old daughter with him. Crazed with greed and mad with power, Aguirre takes over the quest, slaughtering any that oppose him – mad for gold!

And his greed knows no bounds. This is truly an amazing film, hard to explain. The actors went through incredible hardships, and is actually lived under the worst circumstances in the jungle, and this certainly is part of the drama. The music is haunting, the cinematography of nature is overwhelming in its brutal beauty. And this is a film which is hard to find and which you definitely should not miss. I can hardly wait to see it again.

Screening will start at 7 p.m., back doors for admission will open at 6:30 p.m. If you do come through the front doors, just walk through to the back to meet us.

Clark touts growth at mining conference TOM FLETCHER Black Press Premier Christy Clark welcomed delegates to an international mining exploration conference Monday with a prediction of record investment in the B.C. industry this year. “Last year, as you know, was a recordbreaking year for mining exploration, $462 million,” Clark said in a speech that previews

the coming election campaign. “Compare that to the 1990s, when $26 million a year in exploration was underway. We’ve come a long way in 12 years, and it’s pretty tough to beat those record-breaking years.” She predicted that mark will be shattered with another 47 per cent increase, mostly due to a few large projects underway now. While exploration is up, five mining expan-

sions are permitted to proceed in the province. They are: Endako Mines’ molybdenum mine at Fraser Lake in Central B.C.; Teck’s Highland Valley copper mine at Logan Lake in the Okanagan; Huckleberry Mine, an open-pit copper and molybdenum mine near Dease Lake in northwestern B.C.; Quinsam Coal, an underground thermal coal mine on Vancouver Island; and Elkview, a

Teck metallurgical coal mine near Sparwood in the Kootenays. Conference delegates applauded another recent development, the first mineral royalty sharing agreements with aboriginal people for Huckleberry Mine and New Afton, an expansion of a Kamloops-area copper mine. Clark also touted an improvement in permit approval times for land and water use as well

as “notice of work” permits. The waiting time has been reduced from 110 days to 80 days, and another $7 million will be spent to get it down to 60 days, she said. NDP mining critic Doug Donaldson said the B.C. Liberal government is still working to fix a problem it created, when mining permit time went from 55 days in 2007 to 110 days by 2011. The 60-day target for notice-of-work permits

was supposed to be met in November, Donaldson added. Clark also took aim at another prominent election issue, the need for skilled trades training. She said the public school system is making a mistake when it spends 13 years and billions of dollars, then tells students they need a degree before they can work. High schools and postsecondary institutions

are getting new equipment and more access to instructors so they can enter the workforce sooner, she said. “Let’s cut completion time for trades training in half, and let’s stop training people for jobs that don’t exist,” Clark said. A major part of the NDP campaign for the May election will be focused on overall cuts to post-secondary funding in recent B.C. Liberal budgets.

Recently I read an article in “Converge” magazine that talked about the influence of the world’s longestrunning TV cartoon, The Simpsons. Up-front disclosure: I have to admit to finding The Simpsons hilarious, even though the last time I watched it was probably a year ago. The way The Simpsons pokes fun at people of faith, à la Ned Flanders and Rev. Lovejoy, has always bugged me. I think those guys are played as one-dimensional caricatures of what the Christians I know are really like. But then, everyone is played as onedimensional in The Simpsons. The city of Springfield is populated by caricatures, and as long as the character in focus isn’t like me, I can think it’s pretty funny. Who doesn’t, after all, enjoy a good chuckle at what other people can be like? And therein lays the narcotic of thought that Simpsons creator Matt Groening has been dealing so successfully for over 20 years. In his “Converge” article, writer Sam McLoughlin points out that “Our favourite cartoon family has achieved a sort of timelessness…because they literally don’t exist in time. Their world does not age. After 20 years, Homer is still fat, stupid, and drunk. Marge is still boring. Lisa is still socially challenged. Bart is still an insubordinate ne’er-dowell.” So, why do we keep watching The Simpsons and the newer, even-morevulgar shows like it? McLoughlin’s theory is that “It’s comforting to those of us that never quite plumbed the depths of our potential… to watch a family infinitely more embarrassing

PARSONS PEN

BY Chris Harder than ours. Here, we are relieved for a few moments from the concerns imposed by our own failures and embarrassments, and are free to laugh at someone else’s.” It is entertainment as an emotional soother. Like Maggie Simpson’s everpresent pacifier, it makes us feel good, but it doesn’t feed us anything. Please don’t think I’m on a rant about a TV show, because that’s far from my point. I’m talking about the mindset of perpetual cynicism, sarcasm, and mockery that is so easy to settle into when the world disappoints us. Life doesn’t measure up to expectations, so we make fun of it. It’s the same tendency that makes someone feel just a little superior when they watch a “Fail” video on YouTube, thinking, “Boy, I’m glad I’m not as dumb as that guy!”

But here’s my question: Where does it get us? The Simpsons never change. The show isn’t actually a real story, because it never goes anywhere. There is no growth, no trajectory. When we settle for a life of shallow cynicism it does not lift our spirits, but confines us to a reality that has no sense of greater meaning. Cynicism is a drug; it helps us feel good for a moment, but it doesn’t solve any problems or elevate us to a better place. Do we really want to end our days like this? My answer is “no”, and it’s what draws me back to Christianity when I find myself drifting toward cynicism. God offers something more than dry cynicism to help us deal with the realities around us. Jesus didn’t show up to make fun of people, but to take compassion on them and give them hope. God doesn’t look at your life, shake his head and chuckle, and say to himself, “What a loser.” He offers forgiveness, hope, purpose, and power to change. God has always been inviting people to move forward into a real story with him. The LORD said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you.” Hundreds of years later, Jesus said to his listeners, “Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Do you see it? God wants to take you somewhere and make you something. God invites you to a life where you replace what is numbing your senses with what will bring you life. Don’t settle for cynicism. Look for meaning. Be part of the story.

There are numerous group Bootcamp classes at a variety of times and a new program has just been introduced this month called Total Strength and Conditioning.

Not only does the skating treadmill provide an excellent chance for coaches to watch a skater’s form and stride, but it also serves as an excellent conditioning tool. Skaters can take their session to the next level when coaches add incline and increase the speed of the session. “Interval training is a great way to build speed and endurance,” says Lucas. Also, skaters can work on a variety of shooting tactics while skating as the treadmill is enclosed in an artificial mini-rink.

“We see a huge improvement on the ice in overall skating ability and speed following each session,” says Lucas.

Crawford analyzes Idle No More campaign MARK CRAWFORD Are “Idle No More” protestors complaining too much? Idle No More, as its name suggests, is not about demanding more hand-outs, or dragging out the Treaty process forever, or perpetuating the status quo for the financial benefit of lawyers, consultants, or existing band chiefs. It is, in part, a protest precisely against that state of affairs. Deliberately or not, protestors seem to have confused a genuine grassroots movement that has spread like wildfire with a glacier-like Treaty process that has been occupied by special interests. It is not hard to spot the difference. In the first place, the amendment that makes it easier to lease reserve land to private interests on the basis of a single majority vote at a meeting (and not with permission of a majority of band members as was the case previously) is intensely controversial; much of the literature

suggests that band democracy should move towards consensus, not away from it, and that education levels and voting procedures should be improved before moving in the direction of greater alienation or development of land. In the second place, the amendments to the Navigable Waters Act and the Environmental Assessment Act that make it easier to build pipelines and power lines across all but the largest rivers and lakes remove an important source of political leverage for First Nations people. Environmentalists support First Nations in recognizing that large bodies of water ultimately depend upon many smaller bodies of water for their existence; it is not clear that a business should be excused from its onus to prove that it is not doing harm just because the body of water it could be harming is small. In the third place, the federal government has historically

had both an important role as an environmental counterweight to provincial and corporate interests and as the level of government which has a special fiduciary obligation to First Nations. As a political scientist who studies and teaches about some of these subjects for a living, I have to conclude that these moves are deeply problematic, and merit much more detailed discussion in separate bills with their own separate parliamentary committees and studies. They are fundamentally not about implementing last year’s budget! It is great that the Harper government issued an historic apology to First Nations for the residential schools in 2008. But that does not excuse the cavalier fashion in which native interests have been treated whenever they conflict with the government’s economic priorities. Like the F-35 fiasco, the determination to close the On-

site clinic and build more prisons regardless of either expert or public opinion; the breath-taking “any treaty is a good treaty” rush to sign trade deals, the Prorogation crisis, the unilateral cap on health spending, and the omnibus budgets themselves, the C-45 amendments are an example of Stephen Harper’s general downgrading of democracy and proceduralism in policymaking. I for one find the prime minister’s whole approach to be a step in the wrong direction. The First Nations do not protest too much; the rest of us protest too little.

MONEY MATTERS

2013

Minimize your taxes, maximize your income

It is an age old question, “how should the business owner pay themselves?” There are, of course ,many differing opinions in this area. Does one take a salary, declare dividends or both? If both, what is the best split? What about spouses and children of business owners? Can they be compensated? Is income splitting a possibility? If we could use income splitting, what would be the best way to minimize taxes? These questions are not answered in a few brief paragraphs, however, there are some common ideas that may pave the way for you to reduce your taxable income, thereby minimizing your

overall tax burden. Dividends, in simple terms, are the profits of a business paid out to the shareholders of the corporation. Dividends can only be paid if the corporation has Retained Earnings, which are the net profits of the business accumulated over time. As the corporation has already paid income tax on the profits (Retained Earnings), distributions made to shareholders in the form of dividends are generally tax-free up to a certain point. One of the benefits of dividends is the fact that they can be paid to all Shareholders; the recipient does not have to be an employee of the corporation. However, there are significant problems with dividends as well.

Firstly, the corporation must have Retained Earnings; if there are no accumulated profits, you cannot pay dividends. Second, dividends are not considered Earned Income for the purposes of the Tax Act; in other words, when calculating personal tax credits and benefits, dividends will not be included - this will restrict your RRSP contribution room, child tax benefits, the GST credit and other types of tax credits. Third, because dividends are not earned income, you will not be contributing CPP on these earnings. This will affect your retirement income later in life. A final issue with dividends is that they must be paid to all holders of a specific class

of shares; in other words, if a husband and wife are both holders of Class A shares, they both have to be paid a proportionate amount of dividends; you cannot elect to pay dividends to one and not the other. Salary on the other hand also has its pitfalls; wages are taxed as they are paid, if you draw a salary of $1,000 per week, you will have to pay CPP and income tax on the wages (EI is not applicable for business owners). Additionally, wages are fully taxable and depending upon how much you pay yourself, you could end up in the highest tax bracket. Salary can also only be paid to actual ‘Employees’ of the corporation; you cannot

pay a spouse or child without them doing actual work for the business; they also must be paid a reasonable amount for the work being done. Wages are considered earned income and do allow you to make RRSP contributions, CPP contributions and will also entitle you to income related benefits. So, with dividends being mostly tax free and wages being fully taxable, what is one to do? One recommendation would be to draw a salary of enough to maximize CPP Pensionable Earnings so that you will make the necessary contributions to ensure you have retirement income later, and to take the balance of your compensation in the form

You want to claim what? the medication. Many people incur expenses directly related to their job but, unfortunately, most of these cannot be claimed against employment income. For the professional football player who threw balls into the stands, the cost was an expense he had to pay himself. For the serviceman required to get a haircut every two weeks, it was still considered a personal expense. The good news is the $1,095 Canada Employment Amount can be claimed by anyone with earned income. If you earned $1,095 or more, you can claim the full amount. Otherwise, it is linked to how much you earned. The credit helps to offset some of the expenses involved with having a job. For many claims, the

decision can involve the expectation of profit. If you find a small treasure while snorkeling, you probably don’t need to worry about reporting it. However, sunken treasure is not considered a non-taxable receipt when the venture is clearly a business. If you experience gambling losses while in Las Vegas, you cannot claim them on your tax return if you are pathological gambler with no reasonable expectation of profit. And if you are thinking of arguing that the tax act is simply too difficult to understand, it has already been tried. One taxpayer argued that the Income Tax Act is “not susceptible of discernment by the average occupant of this land” – basically the average Canadian couldn’t expect to

understand the document. The tax court ruled this is not a valid defense against the charge of failing to file income tax returns. But it never hurts to ask – the tax court may rule in

It is tax time and it is the time of year when people are willing to try just about anything to legally reduce their tax bill. So before you collect your receipts and start preparing your tax return, here are a few deductions other taxpayers have tried to claim. Some were successful, while others weren’t. Though pets are considered by many to be members of the family, they are not dependants. Even if you give them people names, your dog or cat cannot be a tax deduction. The only exception is if they work for you. A farmer was allowed to claim cat and dog food because the pets were outdoors and kept the wildlife away from the blueberries. The tax courts do not always side with taxpayers on medical expenses. You cannot claim the cost of trips to Las Vegas and Arizona even if your dermatologist recommended trips to warmer climates to help treat your psoriasis. Overthe-counter medications are another claim that will be denied. The Canada Revenue Agency does not consider these eligible medical expenses even if a doctor recommends

of dividends. As with any financial decision, this scenario is best left to the professionals as everyones situation is different and salary vs. dividends is a very complex matter.

Mountain Caribou decline concerns Valhalla society One of the province’s largest Mountain Caribou herds has declined by approximately 100 animals since the BC government announced its Mountain Caribou Recovery Plan. Government census figures show that the Wells Gray-Thompson River subpopulation declined from an estimated 274 animals in 2007, to an estimated 172 animals in 2011. “That’s a steep, alarming rate of decline for the last six years,” says Anne Sherrod, a director of Valhalla Wilderness Watch. The area covered by the census is the Wells Gray-Thompson Planning Unit.  It covers about four-fifths of Wells Gray Provincial Park, but also includes caribou residing outside the park, Sherrod says. The steepest rate of decline is among caribou outside the park, but caribou in the park are also declining. The evidence points to massive clearcutting around the park. “The area around the southwestern, southern, and eastern boundaries of the park is an appalling sea of clearcuts and roads,” says Sherrod.  “The BC government has allowed clearcutting right up to the park boundaries. It has been well known for years that surrounding parks with clearcuts and roads isolates species at risk and can eventually

wipe them out.”  In Wells Gray, wildfires burned through the park’s main valleys in the early 20th century.  This created forage supporting great numbers of moose and deer, which in turn supported an increased population of wolves. Biologists say wolves are eating the caribou, but the park’s forest is now approaching the age that will favour caribou and naturally reduce moose, deer and wolves. But clearcutting outside the park keeps creating moose-deer-wolf habitat, Sherrod says. “We can’t keep increasing the density of these animals outside the park and expect them not to move into the park,” says Sherrod. “Unfortunately, Canfor  is preparing to salvage log in the Clearwater Valley right against the park; other areas in the habitat of the Wells Gray-Thompson herd remain open to logging despite the BC government’s highly celebrated “Mountain Caribou Recovery” Plan.  A meagre 6,000 hectares of Timber Harvesting Land Base was partially protected for the Wells Gray-Thompson caribou, and only part of that has been designated for “no logging.”  A somewhat larger area of non-commercial forest was also designated, but as a “modified harvest zones” that

allow continued logging.  Once roaded and cut, these areas will be worthless for caribou. In 2007 the Liberal government admitted that “Habitat loss and fragmentation has been identified as the underlying cause of mountain caribou population declines since 1995, with mortality by predators as the secondary cause. Halting and reversing habitat loss is central to the plan’s success.”  Nevertheless, the government refused to reduce the Allowable Annual Cut in Mountain Caribou habitat, and that severely limited protection of Timber Harvesting Land Base. For an animal that is dependent on intact oldgrowth forest, that was a disaster, Sherrod says.   The government focused instead on killing wolves. Five years later, in its draft Wolf Management Plan, the Liberal government has admitted that its wolf killing programs have not resulted • • • • • •

in more caribou. Now the caribou are declining in the North Cariboo Mountains, in the North and South Columbia Mountains, in the South Selkirks and elsewhere.  Yet the Liberals continue making the same mistake:  instead of expanding habitat protection and eliminating snowmobiling in winter habitat, they now want to kill still more wolves.  Wolf culls may actually work to make the problem worse.  Studies show that killing wolves to the point of disrupting their natural pack life can scatter them and increase their reproductive rate. Thus it is possible that the government’s wolfkilling caribou recovery plan has actually increased the number and territory of wolves, sending them into adjacent protected areas. To avoid this, the government now wants to kill 80% of the wolf population around Mountain Caribou ar-

Council approves commemorative monument Williams Lake City Council approved the placement of a residential school commemorative monument in Boitanio Park. City staff has been authorized to assist with site preparation, installation and landscaping for the project. The past year, city

staff has worked with Esketemc Chief Fred Robbins to support the development of a project of commemoration and reconciliation regarding St. Joseph’s Mission Residential School. One of the main elements of the project is to design and install a

monument at the St. Joseph’s Mission site. The the planning committee would like to install a ‘sister’ monument in Boitanio Park. This would bring recognition to the impact of residential schools on the Aboriginal people in our community, but also the impact on the com-

munity as a whole. The proposed site for the monument is in the area near the southwest entrance to Boitanio Park. Final location will be determined in partnership with the project planning committee. City staff would assist with preparing the

Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid announced details Monday of a data breach that led the ministry to fire seven health ministry staff and contractors involved in patient research related to approval of drugs for B.C.’s Pharmacare program. MacDiarmid said 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 discharges, medication

history and Medical Services Plan claims. 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, she said. An internal ministry and police investigation is ongoing, and the ministry would not disclose the identity of anyone involved. Most of the fired employees and contractors have identified themselves publicly, and at least one has filed a wrongful dismissal lawsuit. MacDiarmid said there

were two data breach incidents in June 2012. The first one prompted the letters to be sent. The second was a data stick provided to a ministry contractor containing similar information on

five million individuals, including length of hospital stay and health condition, such as whether they have diabetes. The third case of a data stick shared without permission, password

protection or encryption took place in October, 2010. It contained diagnostic information on 21,000 people for 262 chronic conditions, including prescription history for certain drugs.

 Tuula Opheim (Tydeman)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tuula Opheim on January 24, 2013. Tuula slipped peacefully into the arms of her Lord Jesus after a two and a half year struggle with cancer. She is survived by her daughter, Maigan Opheim; parents, David and Wilma Tydeman; sisters: Nerida Hygh (Steven), Zoe Tydeman; brother, Patrick Tydeman (Michelle), and a number of nieces and nephews. In her early adult years, Tuula lived in Nanaimo, Dawson Creek and Tumbler Ridge where she worked in the hospitality industry. In later years, she worked for Black Press at Williams Lake, the lower mainland, Ashcroft, and lastly, Prince Rupert, returning home to Nanaimo in 2010. Wherever Tuula lived and worked she made lifelong loving friends with co-workers, in her community and in her church. Her greatest joy was serving and giving to others and exercising her unique sense of humor. Our family gives thanks to the Drs, nurses and Hospice volunteers of the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital for the wonderful, considerate care with which they attended Tuula during her stay there. Also for their kindness and encouragement to all family members and friends. A special thank you to Cheryl Rae and Debbie Bianchin for the love and support they gave to Tuula and family. A celebration of Tuula’s life will take place at Eagle Mountain Pentecostal Church on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 2 p.m. The church is located at the Howard Johnston Hotel on Comox Road, Nanaimo (beside the Greyhound Bus Depot).

Marsha Louise Macfarlane It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Marsha Louise Macfarlane, on January 28, 2013, at the age of 67. Marsha fought a courageous battle with cancer for 6 years. Marsha was an avid sewer and gardener and she loved to go to craft sales to sell her denim treasures. She was known as the “Bag Lady” to some and the “Egg Lady” to others, but as “Mom” to her three loving daughters, Tammie Wilson (Collin), Shannon Macfarlane (Michael) and Christine Walsh (Andy) and son Lawrence Bater (Ruby). Wife to James Macfarlane and Grandma to Doug (Leah), Amber, Deanna, Alana, Emma, Preston and Sara. She also leaves a sister Diana Brown (Murray), nieces and great nephews. Don’t forget Radar, Mom’s little dash-hound who also mourns her passing. When she wasn’t sewing, Marsha, Jim and Radar loved to spend time on their boat down on the Sunshine Coast. No service will be held as per Marsha’s request. We miss you so much and love you forever. LaPrairie’s Funeral Service entrusted with arrangements. 250-398-9100
