TIB election dispute not yet settled


By Dale Bass



ELLY O’DONNELL HAS BECOME best friends with a surprising number of dogs, considering she has yet to call one her own. O’Donnell was raised in a family without canine pets as her father was allergic to the animals. Yet, it didn’t keep O’Donnell from becoming chums with neighbourhood mutts. Sitting on the floor on Student Street at Thompson Rivers University on a winter Thursday afternoon, the adventure-tourism student has just met her newest four-legged friend — a St. John Ambulance therapy dog named Ivory. Dog tired (pun intended) after countless students’ hands reaching out to pet her snow-white coat, the nine-year-old English lab decides it is time for a break from the action — and finds the perfect spot to take a cat nap. Just weeks earlier, during Christmas break, O’Donnell returned to Edmonton, where she visited with friends and their dogs, going for walks with each of them. Now, stroking the soft ears of a snoozing pooch at TRU, O’Donnell loves each moment. She smiles as she looks up from the furry face plunked firmly on her lap. “I’d love to have a job like this,” she says, “laying around and having people pet me.” Fostering positive feelings within students is the goal of TRU Wellness Centre’s Therapy Thursdays. The idea came about from a TRU staff member and animal lover and brought about a connection with the successful St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program. “It wasn’t hard to see the immediate benefits to our students on campus,” says TRU Wellness co-ordinator Chelsea Corsi. “Improving students’ moods, increasing spirits and reducing stress during midterms is the sole purpose of the dogs’ visits.” From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Thursday until April 11, students can cuddle and pet a therapy dog at the TRU Wellness Centre’s Therapy Thursdays: For the Love of a Dog.

Kelly O’Donnell has become best friends with more dogs than most, although never owning one of her own. O’Donnell grew up with a father who was allergic to dogs. Her connections to her neighbourhood canines stand to this day. Sitting on the floor on Student Street at Thompson Rivers University, the adventure-studies student caresses her newest four-legged friend, Ivory. The nine-year-old St. John Ambulance therapy dog was happy to find a soft landing for a short cat nap — tuckered out after a morning of connecting with the countless students who made their way past the TRU Wellness Centre’s booth during Therapy Thursdays: For the Love of a Dog.

The validity of the 2012 Tk’emlups Indian Band election will become clearer this month when a judge rules on a petition to have the results set aside. Kamloops provincial court Judge Chris Cleaveley reserved his decision after hearing submissions on Monday, Feb. 18, from David Paul, representing the band, and petitioner Marie Baptiste, who unsuccessfully challenged incumbent Shane Gottfriedson for the job of chief. The judicial hearing is the second to be held in the matter, which revolves around incorrect information on voting day and polling location in the November election. The crux of the issue is information mailed to TIB members who live off the reserve. Some received voting instructions giving Nov. 28 as the election date, while others and all who live on the reserve were given documents identifying Nov. 10 — the actual date — as election day.

Paul argued the mistake was simply a clerical error and was included in about 50 of the 377 off-reserve mailouts that were sent. He noted the ballots and other documents in the package had the correct date, as did election information contained in the TIB newsletter, newspaper and broadcast advertisements and online. In response to Cleaveley’s question if a newspaper advertisement should be considered as a means to get information to people who do not live on the reserve, Paul replied Internet advertising would provide that outcome. “That’s assuming everyone had a computer,” Cleaveley told Paul. The only person to call and ask about the incorrect date, Paul told the court, was Baptiste, who asked about the situation on Nov. 21. Paul told the court the petition should also be denied based on timelines established in TIB regulations, which allow for disputes to be considered if they are raised within 15 days of the election.

Pondering parking

Chamber likes its new digs

Big changes proposed for downtown drivers

The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the grand opening of its new location on Wednesday, Feb. 20. The chamber has moved to 615 Victoria St. from its former office at the city’s Visitor Information Centre across from Aberdeen Mall. That location is now operated by Tourism Kamloops. The chamber’s grand-opening program will start at 5:30 p.m. and coincides with Chamber of Commerce Week, which runs to Friday, Feb. 22, culminating in a lunch with Environment Minister Terry Lake. The chamber will also unveil its new branding and logo at the grand opening. The chamber’s new office is in downtown Kamloops, an area in which 80 per cent of the organization’s members operate their businesses. “We hope our members will take advantage of the great programming we have set up for them during Chamber of Commerce Week,” chamber president Maurice Hindle said, noting the week is filled with events geared toward the Kamloops business community.

Start saving those loonies. Dollar-an-hour parking in the downtown is back on the agenda today (Feb. 19) as Kamloops city council considers a package of parking changes originally pitched by the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association.

PROPOSALS • Replace parking meters with digital pay stations • Double parking rate to $1 per houur, to $1.25 per hour in 2015, to $1.550 per hour in 2018 • Double fine, if paid within 2244 hou oursrs,, to $10 ours


kamloopsthisweek .com

The $1.7-million upgrade would see the city’s aging parking meters scrapped and replaced with digital pay stations, which track cars by licenceplate number. The new stations would offer parking at a rate of $1 per hour for the first two hours, as well as an additional hour of parking for $2. Staff are recommending more fee increases in the coming years, with an hour of parking going for $1.25

in 2015 and $1.50 by 2018. The hikes are meant to keep Kamloops in line with other communities of a similar size, according to a staff report prepared for council. Meter rates in the city haven’t changed in nearly two decades. The last fee increase took place in 1994. Along with the cost increase, parking tickets would also go up in price, from $5 if paid in the first 24 hours to $10. The increased fees and technological changes could net the city another $920,000 in parking revenue each year. While more than half that cash will be go toward operational costs and paying for the new pay stations, about $390,000 would go into a new reserve, which could pay for other parking projects in the future. After today’s debate, the public will get a chance to weigh in on the new plans. City council will host a forum on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. at Interior Savings Centre to discuss the parking proposals and collect feedback.

LOCAL NEWS Silver & Gold

City council to decide on communal-living request Can 12 unrelated people make a family? That’s the question Kamloops city council will consider today (Feb. 19), as it looks at a rezoning application for a local housing co-operative. The Rarebirds Housing Co-operative is applying to build a

single-family home on Battle Street West in the city’s West End. But, this home will contain six bedrooms and accommodate up to 12 couples and singles, all of whom will share a kitchen and common area. Each member of the co-op has invested $200,000 in the project and

owns membership shares, which they can sell if they wish to move somewhere else. While the twostorey co-op house meets the city’s usual design standards, the communal living aspect of the Rarebirds project requires some special permissions.

Under the city’s guidelines, a family is defined as two or more people who are related by blood, marriage or an adoption or foster care agreement, or a maximum of three unrelated people. City staff is encouraging council to give the

Rarebirds permission to extend the definition of family further than normal, as long as the group enters a housing agreement that prohibits members from renting out their rooms and turning the property near the downtown core into a boarding house.

De Frias to remain on WolfPack ice By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

Colten de Frias will be allowed to continue in the university hockey program for the remainder of the school year. The status of de Frias, one of the leading scorers on the TRU WolfPack hockey team, had been put into question after he was found guilty in December of assault causing bodily harm. At the time, Christopher Seguin, TRU’s vice-president of advancement, said the institution was waiting to see what sentence was given before making comment. Following sentencing on Thursday, Feb. 14, which saw Kamloops provincial court Judge Chris Cleaveley issue a conditional discharge,

directing the 21-yearold to pay the $30,000 in dental costs Andrew Giddens now faces, Seguin said officials at the university have met with de Frias and “outlined ongoing expectations. “TRU student athletes are aware their behaviour while participating in sport or even while involved in non-university-related activities may lead to decisions regarding their ability to continue to represent the university on any of its teams.” Giddens has undergone several dental procedures and dentists have recommended implants, using pieces of bone that will be harvested from his hip. Cleavely placed de Frias on one year of probation, with orders to

Heart Month

“I am 33 years old now and am happily living my life out on Vancouver Island and I owe it all to you and your company. You saved my life and I can never re-pay what you have done for me.” Dear Strauss Herb Company,

I had cancer when I was 10 years old and went through 2 years of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. One of the drugs they used was called adriamycin. The adriamycin is very hard on your heart and ten years later I went from a normal 20 years old young man to not being able to physically lift myself off the couch. Just existing was like running a marathon and I was dying. After 4 months in the hospital and a few trips to the critical care unit for crashing I had enough knowledge to at least keep myself stable. One day the doctor came in and told me that they had found a node on my lung and did a biopsy and found another cancerous growth. I was now diagnosed with end stage congestive heart failure and lung cancer. Because of the lung cancer I was taken off of the heart transplant list and because of the heart condition I wouldn’t survive another round of chemotherapy. I was sent home with a prescription for my heart meds and a six month timeline as to how long I was going to live. They sent me home so I would be in familiar surroundings when my ¿nal breath was taken. Being as that I was only 20 years old, I had no intention of dying. One day I wandered into a health food store in my hometown and explained my story to the woman working. After a few tears and d a heartfelt hug from her she showed me Strauss Heartdrops. I began as directed and continued to increase my dosage until I was taking 2.5ml/3x a day. After 6 months I ccon began to be able to go for walks without seeing stars. The feeling like someone was b standing on my chest started to subside. I remember the ¿rst time I fell asleep on st my back - it was a small miracle because before it had felt like I was drowning. m I reported to my cardiologist appointments as ordered and was stunned as I watched my improvement not only on a personal level but in a controlled environment using the best in modern equipment. I am 33 years old now and am happily living my life out on Vancouver Island and I owe it all to you and your company. You saved my life and I can never re-pay what you have done for me. There is so much more to this story but I just wanted to give you the gist of it. ss Product Thank you, thank you, thank you. Health Can Canada nad ada da Appr A Approved ppro oved

Nursing students shine light on youth clinic By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

They’re young, they’re studying nursing at Thompson Rivers University — but they didn’t know there is a youth clinic in the city providing health information. So, Amanda Keane, Chelsea Brown and Matia Zivkusic took it on as their community project, determined to increase awareness of the facility and the services it provides. To do this, they have prepared a display board of the kind of information young people need to know and can learn about at the clinic. The Interior Health Authority has plenty of pamphlets on similar subjects the trio plans to make available and they are working on a presentation they hope to give to high school students. “There’s so much in the media with Teen Mom and other shows that give out false information and are just glorification without talking about things

like STIs [sexually transmitted infections],” Zivkusic said. “So, we want to talk about the youth clinic and what a great place it is, what a safe environment it provides.” The clinic is open at the publichealth unit, 519 Columbia St., on Tuesdays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Hours are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays for prescription refills only. All times must be booked through the health unit. It’s available for youth up to age 25 and addresses all aspects of health, including reproduction and the use of contraceptives. A doctor’s referral is not needed, said public-health nurse Tricia Feere. As part of their project — a pass-orfail course student nurses are given 78 hours during the term to complete — the students hope to do a survey on the willingness of youth to use the clinic. The results would go to the Interior Health Authority to provide data on the clinic’s role in the community.

Tax-Free Savings Accounts – The Basics Donna Erickson, 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 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?

Liberal Stone needs to take a breath and count to 10


ODD STONE HAS succeeded veteran MLA Kevin Krueger as the B.C. Liberal candidate for Kamloops-South Thompson. While not as bombastic as his predecessor, Stone has gotten off on the wrong foot as he begins his campaign to retain the seat for the Liberals in the May 14 election. In Stone’s case, that foot happens to be currently stuck in his mouth. Last week, Stone, without prompting, attacked NDP Leader Adrian Dix’s decision to use Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops as the backdrop to his announcement that an NDP government will restore the $1-million per year funding to the Science World tour program. The program, called BC Program for the Awareness and Learning of Science (BC PALS), saw Science World staff visit hundreds of classrooms across B.C., bringing Science World experiments to kids who might not otherwise be able to visit the famous silver dome in Vancouver. On the morning of Dix’s visit to Kamloops, Stone called city media to lambaste the NDP leader’s focus that day — only Stone was less than fully cognizant of what Dix was saying. Here is Stone’s tweet prior to Dix’s announcement: “Unbelievable Adrian Dix comes to #Kamloops today to commit funding 4 Science World in Vancouver. People of Kamloops deserve better #bcpoli.” Actually, Dix was committing funding to a provincewide Science World program, not to Science World’s Vancouver operation. Those who have seen Science World


MUSINGS staff work their magic in front of wideeyed kids — and I have — can attest to how fantastic the program is and how engaged schoolchildren become. The program was instrumental in getting kids tuned into science and crucial in spreading the wonder of science and Science World beyond the Lower Mainland — and the B.C. Liberals deserve kudos for funding the innovative endeavour in 2005. Yes, programs are created to be cut in the world of politics as fiscal decisions are re-evaluated every day. But, cutting the BC PALS program’s $1 million a year in light of the millions and millions the B.C. Liberals have been spending on partisan preelection campaign ads is a poor decision — and lousy PR. Heck, the program could be funded by a few Pamela Martins. It could be sustained for six years with the taxpayer funds that mysteriously went to the legal defence team that defended Dave Basi and Bob Virk, both of whom pleaded guilty in the BC Rail corruption case. This becomes magnified when one looks back at how enthusiastic the Liberals were about the program —

right before they killed it. They cut the program in June 2012. Only seven months earlier, Premier Christy Clark spoke of how valuable the Science World program was: “It’s important we support Science World and their programs that foster the pursuit of science in our children and throughout the community, so we have bright young people to fill those jobs when they become available.” Five months before those words, Moira Stilwell, then-parliamentary secretary for industry, research and innovation, said: “Getting young people excited about sciences and technology is not a task that ends because the Year of Science is over. “This legacy funding will ensure that we continue to educate our young people about the tremendous opportunities that the sciences provide . . .” Stone’s Science World gaffe followed his bewildering take on the first NDP radio ad, a rather innocuous spot featuring Dix smiling a lot. Stone labelled it an “attack ad,” which, compared to the vicious ads taken out by Concerned Citizens for B.C. (a group that supports the B.C. Liberals, led by Jim Shepard, former advisor to the premier), is akin to the iceberg that sunk the Titanic ripping into BC Ferries for a two-sailing wait at the Tsawwassen terminal. When anybody, regardless of political stripe, is criticized for deciding to fund a worthwhile program that requires precious little to fund, those behind the criticism are only revealing the depths of desperation to which they have sunk.

If nothing else, perhaps the court action involving the November Tk’emlups Indian Band’s election will result in a bit more light being shone on the affairs of the band. As it stands now, open government is a description that simply does not apply at the TIB. Marie Baptiste was a candidate for chief in the Nov. 10 election, finishing well behind incumbent Shane Gottfriedson. However, Baptiste is petitioning the court to set aside the election results and hold another vote due to erroneous information sent to offreserve voters, of which there were 377 among the 902 people eligible to vote in the election. Election notices mailed out included wrong voting dates (Nov. 27) and a wrong voting location. Baptiste is arguing the mistakes could have had a significant effect on election results. While a judge decides what to do with her request, it is worth noting that Baptiste has stated her difficulty in getting answers and having Gottfriedson and band staffers respond to her concerns. Her frustration is not surprising, considering information can be very hard to come by when dealing with the TIB. As KTW was once advised on a rather straightforward inquiry, all such questions must go through the chief. The election’s all-candidates meeting was off-limits to non-members of TIB. And, while Kamloops city council chambers are open to one and all, non-members of the TIB are prohibited from simply observing. There is no reason for this shield, other than this is how it has always been done. As long as taxpayer dollars go to the TIB, and as long as the band and City of Kamloops enter into various agreements — infrastructure-related or otherwise — as they do now, the band should emulate the city in operating with an open-door policy for one and all. If not, the question must be asked: What is being hidden?

THIS WEEK Speak up You can comment on any story you read @

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Story: Public to get say on highwaywidening plan: “Reminds me of the announcement for the Cariboo Connector by Gordon Campbell. “Twelve years later, less than 40 kilometres of new four-laning has been done, out of 400 kilometres. “At this rate, it will be 120 years until it’s done.” — posted by Robin A. Sharpe “Much better to regain passenger-rail traffic on railways, upgrading for higher speed. “When will we start to build for the future instead of for the past? “When will we realize that two-thirds to four-fifths of all fossilfuel reserves must stay in the ground to avoid catastrophic climate change, and act accordingly? “How about today?” — posted by Kevin D. Brown “$650 million? “It’s a joke, right? “That wouldn’t begin to widen the highway to the Alberta border. “Kicking Horse Canyon alone would cost more than that!” — posted by Mike Halpen

City can save money by thinking before planting Editor: Re: Christopher Foulds’ column of Feb. 12 (‘There are ways to save some money at city hall’): In spite of being quite new to Kamloops, having lived here for only eight years, it is surprising to see the

zealous polarization of public opinion to every issue that surfaces and gets addressed by city council. I think what has happened is that people who have lived here for longer than me and who are now sitting on council have become

jaded to predictable public reaction and vote in favour of projects with little thought as to impact of future costs. I would say quit planting deciduous trees throughout the city. Did council address the annual cost of piping and infrastructure of

water lines to keep the trees from dying in the heat of summertime? Not to mention diverting perfectly good drinking water to the trees, which I understand is considered an issue important enough for council to decide on water metering.

Kamloops is situated in an arid climatic area. Yet the city continues to plant new lawns and flower beds, which will require weekly mowing, watering and maintenance. Errol Borsk Kamloops

How about three draft budgets for consideration? Editor: Re: Christopher Foulds’ column of Feb. 12 (‘There are ways to save some money at city hall’): “Councillor Ken Christian noted that, while there was plenty of advocacy for projects, he did not hear much in the way of suggestions on trimming costs.” In fact, one promising cost-cutting strategy has been brought

up repeatedly, yet has never been seriously considered by Kamloops council. Year after year, it’s suggested that staff produce three draft budgets for council consideration, instead of just one. The first budget would show what would be on the block if revenues were cut by five per cent, the second would reflect a zero dollar increase and

the third would show a funding increase of five per cent. This strategy would provide more options for council and the public to consider in terms of savings and give us a more significant role in setting city priorities. By contrast, the current budget-consultation process is perceived as merely haggling over “extras.” I believe the collec-

tive public reluctance to make suggestions on trimming costs has much to do with our unfamiliarity with the workings of the city. We would rather defer to the experts — the staff who are most familiar with the intricacies of city spending — on where cost-savings might be achieved. Staff should be requested to identify potential savings and council (after consulta-

tion with the public) should then decide whether a budget increase is in the best interest of our citizens. Other cities have used this approach with success. If Kamloops city council wishes to avoid annual tax increases of three or four per cent, perhaps it is time for them to consider this strategy. Gisela Ruckert Kamloops

A recent case in point is the Feb. 14 Your Opinion page, on which two letters sympathetic to the affirmation of the humanity of pre-natal life were published.

Editor: Re: Dustin Savage’s Feb. 14 letter regarding abortion in Canada (‘Rights of nature above human life?’): Savage’s thoughts are barbaric and unreasonable.

Editor: Like a lot of other Kamloops residents, I agree city council should change the twodog rule. Most cities, such as Vancouver and Prince George, allow between five and seven dogs. I just wish city council would make up its mind. It’s highly unfair to let some people have three dogs and yet not others. A few years ago, my daughter had to find a new place to live because the home in which she rented a basement suite already contained dogs and her

pet made it three in the residence. She was forced to moved and yet city council allows others to have three dogs. This is so maddening. Everyone has their own sad stories about why they should be allowed to keep three dogs. Rules should be for everyone and not for a select few. Council was elected to represent all Kamloops citizens, not just the few. Council needs to make a decision once and for all. Sandy Gribble Kamloops

TRU gymnasium given all-clear after closure Small holes in the walls of the gymnasium at Thompson Rivers University have been cleaned up and sealed after about two tablespoons of vermiculite fell out during a heavily attended International Days event earlier this month. Christopher Seguin, TRU’s vicepresident of advancement, said KRM Recycling, a specialist in

site cleanups, handled the work and sealed the space with silicon. Peak Environmental, an environmental-consulting firm, did extensive air testing and reported the space safe for use. Worksafe BC also visited the site, reviewed all actions taken and was satisfied, Seguin said. Vermiculite can be used as insulation and is not considered to pose

a health hazard. Some vermiculite can contain asbestos fibres; however, research has shown a short, limited exposure to a small amount of that kind of mixture will not cause health problems. The analysis showed less than one per cent of the two tablespoons was asbestos, an amount equal to less than one-eighth of a teaspoon.

Finding peace through art therapy Jessica Ganton-Stanley uses art to help clients heal Most people know all about art and have a good idea what therapy is, but what about art therapy? In the following interview, Kamloops art therapist Jessica Ganton-Stanley shares some of her expert knowledge in the field. KP: Tell us about yourself and your creative background. JG: My name is Jessica Ganton-Stanley. I grew up in the very early years in Prince George and then spent the majority of my years on Vancouver Island in Nanaimo and Victoria. I did a brief stint in the “big city” of Vancouver to do my art therapy certification and then moved to Kamloops. I am a certified art therapist and a trained artist. I have over five years’ experience working in the art-therapy modality and a lifetime of experiencing art as healing. I received my certification as an art therapist through the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute and my artist training through a bachelor of fine arts in visual arts at the University of Victoria. Additionally, I successfully completed the Children Who Witness Abuse program training, have completed sand-tray therapy level one, as well as many specific professional development workshops in art therapy, advocacy and non-profit work, including the Theatre of the Oppressed, the Cross-Sector Forum and Consultation: Improving Responsiveness of Services for Immigrant and Refugee Women Experiencing Violence, and have received a certificate in children’s programming using experiential learning. I have a wide range of experience as an art therapist with different populations, including practical experience at an innercity elementary school and an alternate high school in Vancouver, working with youth at the adolescent psychiatric unit of the B.C.

As a child, I would spend hours creating stories through art, copying images from comic books and creating paintings, drawings and sculptures to express myself. I later followed my love of the creative process through my training in visual arts and later through my certification as an art therapist. KP: Describe your artistic process. JG: I now use both the technical lens and the intuitive lens to create compositions, to use the spontaneous method of creation to


connect with the emotive side and the planned method of creation interchangeably to come to a finished product. The result is that art-making is a journey into self and toward mastery in the craft. In beginning a piece of work when staring at the intimidating blank canvas, I will do a lot of visual imaging in my mind, use my journal to create spontaneous works and create a concept for each piece.

‘The process of creating is soothing’ XFrom A11

Then, I will work with the space and shape of the canvas to see an image. In abstract works, I find one colour to start, make a mark and let that lead me through to the finished piece. In my abstract landscape works, I begin from a photograph and translate the image on to canvas using the image as a base and the paint to create my emotional connection to the photo or landscape that it represents KP: What motivates you to create/work? JG: In my personal artwork: Nature, animals, beauty, pain, stress, love. In my work as an art therapist and instructor, I am constantly amazed, honoured and motivated by people’s experiences, insight, resiliency and stories. I love the moment that a person surprises themselves through their own art. The “a-ha!” moments — and the “I can’t believe I did that” moments. KP: What is the most difficult thing about creating/doing your work? JG: I think, as with every artist, it is the judgmental, rational side of our brains that make excuses not to do art — “I am too busy,” thinking through the whole process of set-up and clean-up . . . that voice. I work to combat that barrier by creating art spaces in my house — places where art supplies are out and messy and ready to be used. I find that aiming to be creative each day keeps me motivated to want to do more and more, as the creative process is so rewarding, fulfilling and positively challenging. KP: What is the best thing about creating/ doing your work? JG: The best thing about creating art is that is encourages the full range of emotions to flow through you. The process of creating is soothing, frus-

trating, joyful, painful, empowering and builds confidence. Creating art helps with problem-solving, lets out the tough emotions, shares our stories in a safe way and brings more beauty to our world. I love being part of the storytelling of history. Art helps us to record the present and share it with the future. Art is a universal language. It is pretty

great to contribute to that. KP: Where can people find your artwork or get in touch with you and learn more about what you do? JG: You can reach me through email at arttherapykamloops@ to speak about my practice of art therapy, art classes or my artwork. My business, Art Tree: Healing Arts and Art Therapy, is in infancy stage, but I hope to

create a website and/or blog in the near future where my work will be available to view. Ganton-Stanley is offering classes through the Karla Pearce Art Gallery, located at 607 Victoria St. Visit or stop by the gallery for more information.

Curse coming to TRU Dalfort takes top spot The TRU Actors Workshop Theatre is opening its production of Curse of the Starving Class later this month. The play, written by Sam Shepard, takes place in the American West, where a family’s farmhouse life takes some dark turns. As the family decides to sell the house and raise money, some talk of running away to Europe, others struggle

with sobriety and one finds herself behind bars after shooting up a bar. The characters are a metaphor for American life — innocents pursuing a dream that remains out of reach. Curse of the Starving Class runs Feb. 28, March 2 and for three nights between March 7 and March 9. All shows begin at 8 p.m., and all will be

staged in the Black Box Theatre, which is located inside the Old Main Building on Thompson Rivers University’s campus. Tickets are $12 and are available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 250-374-5483 or Reservations can also be made through the Actors Workshop Theatre by calling 250377-6100.

Toyota wants you to spend more time playing, and the 2013 RAV4 might be the perfect vehicle to make that happen STORY A16/A17

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I got to test drive the new 2013 DODGE RAM 1500 BIG HORN 5.7L HEMI. This truck is POWERFUL! The cab is high off the ground but the running boards made it easy for my 3-year-old son to get in. I loved all the features it had, like the touch screen, heated steering wheel, backup camera with guides, and the big lights up top. I really liked the look, too - the colour, the oversized tires, and the off-road style!

Now it’s your turn! Come test drive it yourself!

Toyota took a simple-is-better approach with the interior of the 2013 RAV4, and it shows. Soft-touch materials are used throughout and it comes in three colours — including a terra-cotta red.



OYOTA THINKS YOU need more time to play in your life and they believe the 2013 RAV4 is the best way to do it. In fact, “Let’s Play” is the key line to a huge advertising campaign just being launched this month to herald the arrival of the fourth generation RAV4 in Canadian Toyota stores. Along with Camry and Corolla, RAV4 is one of the three core models in the Toyota lineup. In fact, RAV4 is second only to Corolla in overall Canadian sales. But, in terms of crossover utility vehicle (CUVs) sales, RAV4 is third behind top seller Honda CRV and Hyundai Tucson. Toyota wants the top spot and it thinks a host of new features, plus a price drop of between $1,000 and $1,300 across the board compared the 2012 models, should help convince more than a few minds. However, re-designing the 2013 RAV4 is not a task to be taken lightly. Made in Canada at Toyota’s Woodstock, Ont., assembly plant, the next-generation RAV4 doesn’t stray far from the winning formula that has made it one of the top selling compact CUVs in this country. Making sure not to tamper too much with its overall size and

It can also be locked up to 50/50 for sand and show. In Sport, the torque split is 90/10. Toyota invited Canadian auto writers to the plant in Woodstock that builds Corolla, Matrix, Lexus RS350 and the RAV4. When I was there four years ago, it was literally a green field and is now a massive facility that, along with the assembly plant in Cambridge, gives Toyota a huge presence on the Ontario and Canadian economy.

In the presentation, Toyota made a big deal about the fun aspect of the new RAV4 and how that blends in with the whole driving experience. We did a drive loop around the sprawling farmlands between Woodstock and Cambridge on mainly straight two-lane blacktop roads and the RAV4 felt very solid, which is something one expects in a Toyota. The engine had more than enough power to deal with normal passing and the transmission was seamless in shifting. I would have liked to try it in deep snow, which blew in two days after the launch, but it was not to be. One thing new is the signature RAV4 swing-out rear door has been replaced by a proper liftgate and a lower loading height. Toyota is claiming class-leading cargo volume of 1,087 litres (38.4 cubic ft) behind the secondrow seat, with a total of 2,078 litres (73.4 cubic ft) with the second row folded flat. Properly equipped, it can tow light loads such as a snowmobile up to 1,500 pounds. Also gone is the rear-door-mounted tire, replaced by a full spare carried under the cargo floor, not under the car, where is gets clogged with snow and, over time, rust. In terms of safety, the RAV4 leads its category with eight airbags, while optional safety features include rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure alert, blind-spot monitor, automatic high-beam system and rear back-up camera. A lot of thought went into the interior, which places a premium on keeping things simple. Soft-touch materials are used liberally and there are three interior color and material choices, including a rather sharp terra cotta used for seat and interior trim. Heating and cooling is done with three large, round knobs. They are simple to use and adjust and, in my opinion, still the best solution. At the top of the dashboard is a centrally placed vent. Its purpose is to increase ventilation to passengers in the back seat by sending the flow between the two front seats. Simple and effective. While the seating position is higher in a CUV, Toyota decided to lower the height of the steering wheel. It’s just enough to make it feel more like a car and less like a truck. On the exterior, there is a new grille and lighting, but the real difference between the 2012 and 2013 is in the aerodynamics, with underbody trays to cut drag, while along the shoulder the character line turns into an aero ramp to increase airflow toward the rear. There are also small raised vortex generators on the A-pillar and rear taillight lenses. All these combine to lower the drag co-efficient on the 2013 model to 0.329 from 0.334 on the 2012 vehicle, which by its nature is essentially a big box in terms of aerodynamics. Now arriving in Canadian showrooms, there are five basic models, with starting prices ranging from $23,790 to $31,700. In a crowded compact CUV market, there are many choices and even more new competitors on the way. Toyota’s “Let’s Play” approach is light-hearted and a fresh way of trying to attract potential buyers. So, why not take a little playtime and take one out for your own test drive?

Fifty years of fast for iconic Porsche 911

Production of the Ford Fiesta ST has started in Germany. The car goes from zero to 100 km/h in seven seconds.

Beefed up Fiesta rolling off Ford’s lines Ford has started production at its assembly plant in Cologne, Germany, of the new Ford Fiesta ST — the first production Fiesta to record a zero-to-100-km/h acceleration time of under seven seconds. Developed by Ford Team RS, the European arm of Ford Motor Company’s Global Performance Vehicle group, the new Fiesta ST for Europe is powered by a 1.6-litre EcoBoost gasoline engine to get from zero to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and offers 180 horse power with a fuel consumption of 48 m.p.g. and 138g/km CO2 emissions. Top speed is 136.7 m.p.h. Ford has further refined the Fiesta ST’s renowned global small car chassis with new

steering, suspension, braking components, configuration and tuning. An enhanced version of Ford’s torquevectoring control system and a three-mode electronic stability control system contribute to a rewarding and secure driving experience. The new Fiesta ST is equipped with MyKey, a Ford-exclusive technology that allows parents to encourage safer driving and limit their teenager’s exposure to risk at the wheel. It also features SYNC — Ford’s voiceactivated in-car connectivity system — with emergency assistance, which directly connects vehicle occupants to local emergency services operators after an accident.

For five decades, the 911 has been the heart of the Porsche brand. Few other automobiles in the world can look back on such a long tradition and such continuity as the Porsche 911. It has been inspiring car enthusiasts the world over since its debut as the model 901 at the IAA International Automotive Show in September 1963. Today, it is considered by many to be the quintessential sports car — the benchmark for all others. The 911 is also the central point of reference for all other Porsche series. From the Cayenne to the Panamera, every Porsche is the most sporting automobile in its category and each one carries a piece of the 911 philosophy. More than 820,000 Porsche 911s have been built, making it the most successful sports car in the world. For each of its seven generations the engineers in Zuffenhausen and Weissach have reinvented it, time and

again, gain, emonstrating to the world demonstrating h iinnovative i power off the h the Porsche brand. Like no other vehicle, the 911 reconciles apparent contradictions, such as sportiness and everyday practicality, tradition and innovation, exclusivity and social acceptance, design and functionality. It is no wonder that each generation has written its own personal success story. Ferry Porsche best described its unique qualities: “The 911 is the only car you could drive on an African safari or at Le Mans, to the theatre or through New York City traffic.” In addition to its classic yet unique lines, the










Porsche 911 hhas always disl bbeen di tinguished by its advanced technology. Many of the ideas and technologies that made their debut in the Porsche 911 were conceived on the racetrack. The 911 was committed to the performance principle from the start and motor racing is its most important test lab. From the very beginning, it has been at home on circuits all over the world, earning a reputation as a versatile and dependable winner. Indeed, a good twothirds of the 30,000 race victories achieved by Porsche to date were notched up by the 911.

One in three drivers don’t know how safety features work: report Subaru set to launch concept in Geneva Although consumers identify safety as a priority when purchasing a new car, the majority of Canadians reportedly have limited awareness of how vehicle safety features work. In an effort to change that, the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) and the Toyota Canada Foundation have launched Brain on Board, a public-education program to engage Canadians to learn more about modern vehicle safety features, dispelling myths about how they work and reminding drivers that knowing more about their vehicles’ safety technology will help them to be safer drivers. Brain on Board is designed to engage drivers, helping them learn more about modern safety features, what these technologies can and cannot do and how knowledgeable drivers can make the most of them. Through this program, the Toyota Canada Foundation and TIRF hope to

reduce accidents by encouraging smarter driving habits across Canada. At, drivers can find a variety of easy to use tools ranging from plain language descriptions of common safety features, details about the human factors that contribute to safe driving and other educational materials. The foundation for Brain on Board is a national research initiative, Vehicle Safety Features: Knowledge, Perceptions, and Driving Habits, led by TIRF and funded by the Toyota Canada Foundation. The largest study of its kind in Canada, the researchers asked 2,506 Canadians from across the country 120 questions to assess knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of vehicle safety and safety features, and the impact these have on driving habits. When asked about their own driving in terms of safety, the majority of Canadian drivers rated themselves eight out of 10

 3:5) " 36    # m '& 5)   

while rating their fellow motorists five out of 10. When purchasing a vehicle, safety (15.6 per cent) is a top priority for Canadians ranking second behind price (29 per cent) and ahead of fuel consumption (13.2 per cent) and reliability (6.1 per cent). Canadians are not familiar with the majority of safety features, the study found. With the exception of ABS and traction control, less than one in three Canadian drivers were familiar with various other modern safety features such as adaptive headlights and collision-warning systems. Despite this lack of awareness, the majority said they believed the safety features would be easy to use. When asked about the different safety features, a majority of Canadians drivers said they would use them if their vehicle had them. — Metroland Media

Wrong date, location at issue of election dispute eligible voters in the election, with 399 cast-

ing ballots for chief — Gottfriedson received

250; Baptiste garnered 103.


In her submission, Baptiste asserted she tried to contacted TIB lawyer Linda Thomas on Nov. 20 to ask about the conflicting information and was told Thomas was busy with a treatynegotiation issue happening that day and to call back on another day. Baptiste said she tried to contact TIB electoral officer Marcus Hadley at that time, leaving messages on his voicemail that were not returned until Nov. 28. In that conversation, Hadley confirmed 377 mail-in ballots were sent out, with 11 received before the actual Nov. 10 election date. Baptiste later learned 100 of the mailed-out packages were returned undeliverable and noted Hadley told her he was not going to try to determine the correct addresses. Also discussed

Monday were the wrong polling-station address sent to off-reserve voters and the inclusion of two candidates on the ballots who had withdrawn from the election. Off-reserve voters were informed by notice they could vote “between 8:00 am. and 8:00 pm. at the Gymnasium of the Sk’elep School of Excellence, 315 Yellowhead Hwy, Kamloops BC.” The actual voting location was Moccasin Square Gardens, 357 Yellowhead Hwy. The names of Alice McCaleb, a candidate for chief, and Lyndsey “Dessa” Gottfriedson, a candidate for council, remained on the ballot even though they had withdrawn. Baptiste said leaving them on the documents could have skewed election results. There were 902

Health Care Aides and Home Support Workers Needed! There is a critical shortage of qualified, registered care aides in Kamloops and the surrounding area. As a respected, locally owned and operated college, we have been approached by several employers in the Kamloops area asking us to help them by training as many care aides as possible, as soon as possible. These are important jobs that make a real difference in people’s lives. Care Aides earn a solid living wage, usually with good benefits.

Expanding CIS at TRU By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER


T WOULD seem athletics at Thompson Rivers University will soon take a step forward. Ken Olynyk, the WolfPack’s athletic director, returned from the Canada West meetings in Calgary with confirmation of recent news: There will likely be three new Canadian Interuniversity Sports (CIS) programs at TRU in 2014. “We re-affirmed our position on wanting to move soccer, swimming and cross-country [running] to CIS and that will be voted on in May [at the annual general meeting],” Olynyk said. “The indication that we’ve received is that we will be accepted to move all of them forward in 2014.” TRU’s soccer teams are members of the Pacific Western Athletic Association (PWAA), which falls under the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) umbrella. Competition in the CIS ranks is widely regarded to be the toughest in Canadian university sports. The men’s and women’s soccer teams

have had success at the CCAA level. Making the transition to CIS is no small task. Cross-country is currently run as a club at TRU but, in the past, its members have competed at the PWAA and CCAA championships. Swimming will be new to TRU in 2014. Log on to for more information on the WolfPack swimming program. The rumours curling will soon be a WolfPack sport are false. “That sport doesn’t have a foothold in Canada West or CIS,” Olynyk said. “Is it a discussion we can have? Yes. “But, before it would be a full-fledged sport at TRU, we would want to see what it looks like in Canada West.” TRU is a designated host for the 2013 CIS/ Canadian Curling Association Curling Championships, set to run from March 20 to March 24 at Kamloops Curling Club, but the Kamloops university will play a minimal role in organizing the tournament. “The Kamloops Curling Club came to us because they needed

a university as part of the package, otherwise they couldn’t host,” Olynyk said. “TRU sits on a committee and partners in a few areas, but KCC and CCA are putting the event on.” There will be two WolfPack teams in action at the tournament — Tiffany Krausher, Alyssa Kyllo, Ashley Nordin, Kym Edgeworth and Katie Hill make up the women’s team, with Darren Nelson, Russ Koffski, Jared Jenkins, Michael Hiram and David Gore set to play on the men’s squad. Moving more programs to the CIS ranks only improves TRU’s credibility in athletics and, for Olynyk, it’s almost a case of having to keep up with the Jones’ on campus. “We are, in a sense, growing as a university,” he said. “We have graduate programs. We have a law school. We’ve already been identified as one of the researchintensive universities of B.C. “Moving forward, [athletics] wants to be aligned with all other aspects of the institution. “I think that’s what’s occurring.”

Storm draw Knights in KIJHL post-season By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

The Kamloops Storm will be hardpressed to escape the first round of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoffs, but crazier things have happened. Game 1 of the Doug Birks Division semifinal — a best-ofseven series between Kamloops and the North Okanagan Knights — will be played on Friday, Feb. 22, in Armstrong. “You know how hockey goes, we’re always happy with whatever matchup we get,” Storm owner Barry Dewar said. “We played them really good all year. We had three double-overtime games. They blew

us away once, 9-5.” Kamloops, which placed fourth in the division with 42 points, won only two of eight regular-season tilts against North Okanagan but, as Dewar said, most of the games were well contested, leaving some hope for Storm fans. The Knights won the Birks division, finishing the campaign with 72 points. Game 2 will be played in Armstrong on Saturday, Feb. 23, before the series comes to Kamloops for Game 3 on Monday, Feb. 25. Puck-drop is set for 7 p.m. at McArthur Island Sports and Events Centre. Those in attendance should be on the lookout for Knights’ forward Mat Lambert,

who, with 20 goals and 53 points, is a good bet to win rookie of the year. Hometown fans will be looking for big things from Connor Fortems. “When he’s playing well, he’s probably the best player in the league,” Dewar said. Fortems, a rookie, has been paired of late on a line with Ryan Keis and Zach Lidster. Wade Moyls is Kamloops’ starting netminder. He racked up 13 wins and 12 losses in 27 games played this season, posting a .921 save percentage along the way. Game 4 will get underway at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at McArthur. “We know each
