City and union reach tentative agreement Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Picket lines went down in Williams Lake Wednesday as union city workers prepared to return to the job after the union reached a tentative agreement with the city. Around 110 members of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 882B began strike action on Feb. 16. Workers resumed work on Feb. 18, but by noon when the union walked away from the table because it did not feel the city was bargaining in good faith, the picket lines were back up. At around 9 p.m. Tuesday, a tentative agreement was reached that IUOE business manager Saundra Taylor said she’s confident her members will ratify over the weekend. “I don’t take a deal if I don’t think my members are going to ratify it,” Taylor said Wednesday. The agreement has to be ratified by council in an in-camera coun-

cil meeting being held Wednesday and then it can go to the union membership. Taylor was satisfied with the work of mediator Trevor Sones. “I’ve had him before. He’s pretty good. I was fairly confident that we would get a deal with his help and we did, but I think trying to do it earlier would not have been successful.” The two sides weren’t stalemated, she insisted. “I still go back to that. They weren’t bargaining with us. I think with his guidance and a little bit of pressure on both sides, thank goodness, we got an agreement.” Scones went back and forth between the union and the city — the two sides were never sitting in the same room. All along the union said it was being asked to take concessions. Now that they’ve reached an agreement, Taylor said it was give and take on both sides with the mediator’s help.

“Everybody had to realize you’re not going to get everything you want. I knew that going in, but I had a brand new bargaining team and I said to Trevor, maybe we should have agreed to this earlier, but honestly I don’t think if we had done it earlier, we would have been successful then.” The strike and everything is what moved both sides, she suggested.” “We had a hearing scheduled at the Labour Board Thursday because I had to file against them for threatening to cut the benefits. They were going to do that and I’ve never had that happen. It’s not a good thing. They need a lot of time to heal and at the 11th hour last night we weren’t sure that was going to happen either and I had to get my lawyer involved.” Taylor said the union does not want to release details of the agreement until after it is ratified. John Dube, IUOE 882 chief shop steward for the city and ser-

vice representative for the region, said crews were to go in Wednesday evening to prepare the complex for reopening and everyone else would return to work Thursday morning. Mayor Kerry Cook said council is excited to have reached a tentative agreement. “It’s great to see that the picket lines are down. Council is meeting tonight to discuss ratification,” Cook said. “This is something the union will have to do as well. It will be great to see business return to normal on Thursday morning, she added. “I think it’s really good news.” Dube said the union got what it could and now it’s time for the members to get back to work and service the public. “A strike is one of those things that you have to do, but it’s never pleasant by all means. If this was a perfect world, we wouldn’t have had to do the strike thing, but we had to do what we had to do.”

Mayor Cook weighs in on community forest issue Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer When asked to define community in a community forest agreement, Williams Lake Mayor Kerry Cook said the city and the Williams Lake Indian Band are at the centre of a regional hub of business and social communities. “The partners recognize the importance of the forest to the people who live close to it, and are working to incorporate their values and interests in addition to the values and interests of those living directly within the partner communities.” A north block in the proposed CFA is located north and east of Williams Lake. Spanning 22,912 hectares, the block is in an area between the Likely and Horsefly Roads from Potato Mountain eastward and to Beaver Valley in the north. Concerns have been repeatedly raised by the communities in Big Lake, Horsefly and Miocene, who for

months have been saying they do not feel that the proponents of the CFA are including them as part of that community. Cook, however, argued the partners have already frequently communicated directly with residents and representatives of the rural communities and will continue to do so. The partners have committed to creating a community council to ensure that the communication is ongoing, she said. As to why the city and WLIB pursue involving those communities as proponents, Cook said choosing partners is challenging and depends on trusting and respectful relationships. “In addition, partners need to be able to accept the business risk of the community forest.” There was a direct invitation from the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to the WLIB and the city to apply for the CFA, she said, adding

Mayor Kerry Cook the rural communities did not have standing as proponents. “The application is within the WLIB’s traditional territory and the band welcomed the city as a partner.” The Big Lake-Horsefly-Miocene Community Forest Working Group has criticized the proponents for having in-camera meetings to appoint directors to a community forest limited partnership and determine how any revenues from the for-

est will be distributed to the community, either through grants or the establishment of a community foundation. Cook justified the in-camera meetings because the partners were selecting directors to govern the business of the limited partnership. “As such it is up to each partner to appoint individuals who collectively have the skills and the wisdom to guide the development of this new business. Discussions of appointments are necessarily confidential and are therefore routinely conducted incamera,” Cook said. Last week Minister Steve Thomson’s office confirmed the proponents were invited to submit their application and management plan. Ministry staff provided some initial feedback and the proponents are currently updating and preparing to submit formally. After the final ap-

plication is submitted, the ministry consults with area First Nations, and after consultation is completed, a final information package is submitted to the regional executive director for approval. “Only if the regional executive director determines the application fully meets the established criteria will a CFA be issued. A key part of the application is demonstrating a high level of support from a broad section of the community.” Big Lake, Miocene and Horsefly are included in the definition of community, and will be included as part of the process, the ministry said in an emailed response. “The application from the city and the Williams Lake Indian Band needs to demonstrate that is it reflecting the values of all of these communities in the management of the CFA area.”

Zellers closure set for March 14 Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The stock continues to be sold at a discount as Zellers in Williams Lake approaches its pending closure. On March 14 the store will be closed and its employees will no longer have a job there. Tiffany Bourré, external communications manager, Hudson’s Bay Company wouldn’t disclose the number of associate numbers, however, said the average Zellers store has around 100 associates. The closure comes

amidst closures of Zellers stores across the country. “We are keeping three open, one in White Rock, one in Toronto and in Montreal,” Bourré said. Most of the stock will be sold in liquidation, with sales going on and the deals increase closer to closure date. Boitanio Mall said Wednesday the mall manager was visiting Williams Lake on Wednesday, however, there are no clues so far if or what business might occupy the space presently housing Zellers.

Committee formed to assist with secondary school transition Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer School District 27 Superintendent Mark Thiessen is facilitating a new district implementation committee starting this week to help with implementing the new one school two campus secondary school in Williams Lake. “This committee will include administrators, teachers, support staff, and parents,” Thiessen says. “The committee will be working together on some foundational elements for the new secondary school in Williams Lake.” He says initial discussions will include: • What the Grade 7 program will look like (elementary, middle school, or secondary school model?). • Grades 8-9 program (middle school or secondary school model). • Graduation program. • Timetable options. School trustees recently confirmed plans to make Williams Lake and Columneetza secondary schools into one grades 7 to 12 secondary school operated on two campuses. Columneetza would become the predominantly grades 7 to 9 campus and WLSS would become the predominantly grades 10 to 12 campus. He says the district is currently advertising for a principal to oversee the two campuses and the plan is to have two viceprincipals working at each campus. At this point, he says it has not been decided if all of the vice-principals will be full-time administrators or if they will also have a teaching load. “While it’s true that we will have more adminis-

Mark Thiessen A3

trators in the secondary schools than we have presently, we will also have 230 more students than we have now as the Grade 7 students become part of the high school system,” Thiessen says. At various times in the past when enrolment numbers warranted it, he says both Columneetza and WLSS have each had one principal and twovice-principals. “As enrolment has declined at the two schools, administration time has also declined. With 230 more students and a major transition happening next year, it’s reasonable to look at a total staff of five administrators overseeing 1,500 students located at two campuses.”  At this point, Thiessen says the district is not looking to hire an external consultant to help with the transition as proposed previously. “The idea was not just that this consultant would be helping with course planning but would be helping with the entire transition planning” Thiessen says. “We have chosen instead to hire the principal for the new (secondary) school and have the principal begin their assignment at the beginning of April.  The new principal and district

staff will then be working together to facilitate the transition process.” He says it is also possible that some extra administration time will be needed at other schools in the district during the transition phase. Overall, however, he says administrative costs will be going down in the district with the closure and reconfiguration of schools in the district. In Williams Lake the transition will also include the closure of Glendale and Kwaleen elementary schools at the end of this school year. Students from those schools have been reassigned to Cataline, Nesika and Chilcotin Road elementary schools, but school of choice provisions will also play a part in the transition. Thiessen says the district is also working with teachers and support staff to come up with a plan for the transition, which in addition to accommodating the transition from a seven to 12 one school on two campuses, needs to address the closure of Kwaleen and Glendale elementary schools in Williams Lake. Nesika, Cataline and Chilcotin Road elementary schools are expected to take the majority of students in the schools that are closing, but school of choice provisions will also play a role in the transition. “The district is presently in Section 54 negotiations with both teachers and support staff,” Thiessen says. “Because this is an unusual year with many employees being displaced, it’s possible that we are able to come to agreements with our unions that would see different processes in place for this year only.

SD 27 secretary treasurer resigns School District 27 secretary treasurer Bonnie Roller is resigning effective June 30 to take the secretary treasurer position for School District 67 in Penticton. The School District 27 board announced the decision Wednesday, after receiving to news at the closed meeting of the school board Tuesday. The board accepted the resignation with regret. Roller has been an em-

ployee of the School District 27 (Cariboo-Chilcotin) for 32 years, with the last six years in the role of secretary treasurer. “I have accepted the secretary treasurer position in School District 67 (Okanagan Skaha) in Penticton,” Roller said in the board press release. “I have lived in the Cariboo-Chilcotin all my life and my whole working life has been with SD27,” Roller said. “It is going to be very

Bonnie Roller

difficult to leave here.” Chair Will VanOsch said the district will miss Roller. “Bonnie has been with this district for a long time and is integral in the workings at the board level,” Van Osch said. “Her professional expertise and knowledge of the district will be sorely missed.” The board will begin its search for a secretary treasurer over the next few weeks.

WL dog park to get upgrades Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Valerie Thiessen from the Williams Lake Dog Park Committee was at city council Feb. 19 with an update on the dog park at Boitanio Park. “This will be the only off-leash area in Williams Lake,” she told council. A dog park promotes tourism and there are people stopping to use the dog park, she added.

“It’s accessible to seniors and promotes socialization.” So far Daybreak Rotary has donated funds to cover the cost of two park benches in the park at $750 a piece. Three citizens have donated funds for signage to indicate a small dog park section, a large dog park section, and regulations. “We are seeking further sponsorship for the remaining $15,000 for

irrigation and signage to name the park itself.” Thiessen asked council for permission to market financial support for the park by naming the park after a major sponsor, hoping it will be incentive for a major sponsor to come forward. Coun. Laurie Walters, attending on speaker phone, thanked the donors so far, and said the idea of approaching a major sponsor is a great

idea. “It’s definitely an incentive for an organization or a business to have the park named after them.” When asked by Coun. Geoff Bourdon if all the work and upkeep of the park and signage will be the responsibility of the city, Thiessen said the committee would probably have to fundraise for those aspects.

Heritage Walk explores streets of Williams Lake Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Celebrating Heritage Week last week a group of enthusiastic historians took in a walk around the neighbourhood overlooking the Stampede Grounds. Event co-ordinator Chris Hornby said about 14 people participated in the walk Feb. 19 that was guided by speakers Win Gooding and John Roberts. Many of the participants were members of the Williams Lake Heritage Committee. She said the group started their walk at the corner of Yorston Street and North Seventh Avenue overlooking the Stampede Grounds and Pinchbeck Park. Win Gooding gave a talk on the Pinchbeck family and pointed out the grave of her ancestor William Pinchbeck Sr. who is buried in the park. As the group moved along Yorston and neighbouring streets the guides talked about the contributions to community life of Chris Garvey, Win and Fred Bennie, the Woodlands, Mary (Procter) Ailport, who lived in the neighbourhood for long periods of time. “Some families lived there more than 50 years and raised their families there,” Hornby says. After a walk around the neighbourhood Hornby says the group headed up Oliver Street to view the three wooden statues carved by Ken Sheen to grace the entrance of the city. They finished the walk with a coffee break at A&W with its 1950s style architecture, Hornby says.

You already know to pull over to the side of the road and stop when you hear the siren of an approaching vehicle. Now a new “slow down and move over” law tells us what to do when we approach a parked emergency vehicle with its lights flashing.


If you are approaching a stopped emergency vehicle with its lights flashing, you must now slow down to: • 70 km/h if you are driving on a highway where the speed The new law is needed to protect the limit is 80 km/h or higher. safety of emergency workers. • 40 km/h where the speed limit is below 80 km/h These speed limits apply to you if you are travelling in either direction.

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

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


Have the garbage/recycling cart at the curb before 7:00 am.


Take the garbage/recycling cart off the curb the same day as it is collected. Put shredded paper in a bag. Loose paper may escape when tipping the cart. Record the serial number on the side of your cart to identify your cart from your neighbours. Ensure the lid of the cart is fully closed. Partially opened lids will not be picked up. Clean all recyclables before putting them in the recycling container. CityWilliamsLake

Slow Down...



Don’t put your carts on the street the night before your collection day. The cart’s subject to vandalism. Don’t put the garbage/recycling carts any closer together than 1 meter. Don’t leave your cart on the curb. This interferes with snow removal or street cleaning. Don’t put your cart any closer than 2 meters from any obstruction such as vehicles or landscaping. Don’t take the carts when you move. The carts belong to that address, NOT TO YOU.

Avoid putting organic material, such as grass clippings, branches, or garden waste, in the solid waste cart. These items only add unnecessary weight to the solid waste stream and increase the costs for every resident in Williams Lake. This material can be brought to the Central Cariboo Transfer Station on Frizzi Road and dropped off free of charge. The only items that are permitted go into the curb side recycling cart are: 1. Paper products – office paper, magazines, newspapers. 2. Cardboard – corrugated cardboard and regular cardboard such as a cereal box. 3. Plastics – must have the recycling symbol on it and the number inside the symbol must be 1 through 7. No Styrofoam allowed. 4. Metal food cans – food or beverage containers. Note: all above mentioned products must be clean. Other recyclable material, such as glass, lead acid batteries, or propane bottles that cannot be put in the curb side recycling cart can be dropped off at the Central Cariboo Transfer Station. Even more recyclable items can be brought to several locations in Williams Lake that participate in the product stewardship program. A list of these companies can be found at the Encorp website (, the Encorp toll free number 1-800-330-9767, or by calling the BC Recycling Hotline at 1-800-667-4321. Any questions can be directed to City Hall at 250-392-2311.

Glad a tentative agreement reached

HST: It’s finally over



t is great news that the city has reached a tentative agreement with our local union. Picket lines are down and it will be wonderful to see business at the city return to normal. I want to say a special thank y o u to our From the c o m Mayor’s munity Chair for their patience Kerry Cook during this difficult time. I had an opportunity to meet face to face with the owner of the mall, who was up from the coast, and our mall manager this week to discuss future plans for Boitanio Mall. This was a very timely and exciting meeting with more information to follow! I also had the pleasure to join the graduation class of the first BCAMTA program (BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association) in Williams Lake. There were 38 graduates representing Soda Creek, WL Indian Band, Ulkatcho and Kluskus communities. The TRU gym was packed with support from families, chiefs, and elders. This is a partnership between our mining and First Nation communities and BCAMTA, providing educational opportunities for First Nation students to enter into mining careers. There are more than 200 students on the waiting list with the next class starting up in March. Congratulations graduates! I have accepted a fun hockey wager from the mayor of Smithers. The mayor of the losing hockey team has agreed to wear the jersey of the winning team at an upcoming council meeting. The Stampeders are already up one game in a best of three series which concludes this weekend. Go Stamps Go! Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

Our Viewpoint

What alternative? Coming one week after its throne speech, the B.C. Liberal government introduced its 2013 provincial budget on Feb. 19. As expected, it has gained a lot of criticism from the Opposition NDP. The BC Conservatives and the independent candidates, who hope to gain some seats in the May 14 election, also gave a thumbs down. So, here it is in a nutshell, the B.C. Liberals throne speech was a desperate attempt to gain some popularity by offering British Columbians a dream of long-lasting economic security. While the odds of it happening are significantly better than winning the lottery, a lot of stars and planets will have to be aligned properly to make it happen. However, it is a plan — some-

thing we haven’t received from the NDP, the BC Conservatives, the Green Party or the independents. Then along comes the budget, which the B.C. Liberals claim is balanced. However, the balancing act depends on selling off of Crown assets and that fire sale is only in the beginning stages at best. The government has introduced some taxation measures — corporate and upper middle class — that would be hard for party supporters to swallow. The B.C. Liberals have been battered from pillar to post since the 2009 provincial election. They arrogantly forced the HST on the electorate and then the B.C. Liberals were forced to get rid of HST after a province-wide referendum didn’t go in the govern-

ment’s favour. It is baggage the party won’t be able to shed and it will likely be the reason for its downfall. However, the B.C. Liberals have gone through some difficult economic times – worldwide economic downturn and the forest industry being hammered by a voracious beetle – and still they managed to keep us afloat. Perhaps the best we could hope for is a minority government – regardless of which party forms it – because nobody else has offered any kind of plan or details on how they are going to pay for their promises when they are eventually released. The last thing British Columbians should be doing is engaging in a popularity contest. - Ken Alexander

he PST legislation passed without fanfare in the Legislature this week, bringing an end to the four-year long HST debacle. It happened without the NDP calling a standing vote to rub salt in the wounds of Liberal MLAs who were compelled to defend and repeatedly vote for a tax their party had promised wasn’t in the cards during the 2009 election. The HST saga demonstrates that the majority of party MLAs and candidates running in an election don’t have a clue what t h e i r MLA leaderMusings ship has in store Bob Simpson for them should they form government. Election platforms and pre-election budgets aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. We’ve seen it time and time again, with the NDP’s so-called “fudge-it budgets”; with Premier Campbell’s sale of BC Rail after the 2001 contest; and with the HST and ballooning deficit after the 2009 election. At a minimum, future fixed election dates must be moved to the fall to avoid this mess, so election year budgets can be fully debated and scrutinized. Fortunately, the HST debacle shows that voters can hold their government to account between elections if they are motivated and organized enough to use the referendum and initiative legislation effectively. I’d like to see this tool used to force political parties to take big money out of politics by banning corporate and union donations. The Liberals’ rationalization of HST also proves we should never listen to politicians who use economic fear mongering to justify their tax or social policies. We were told that PST is a job and investment killer. Funny that the provincial budget tabled a few weeks ago projects none of the job and investmentkilling effects the Liberals said we’d experience if we returned to the PST. Now that the HST is behind us, let’s hope the government starts actively assisting the 100,000 businesses (out of 130,000) that have yet to register to start collecting the PST as of April 1st. Some of the millions of dollars of taxpayer money being spent on partisan ads could have been put to much better use by making the transition back to PST as painless as possible. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

A huge bouquet of roses to the gentleman who, without being asked or requesting remuneration, plowed my driveway one day last week. In addition he cleared away the snow from the curb not removed by the city crew to facilitate the proper placement of waste and recycle bins. It is heartwarming to see good samaritans still doing random acts of kindness in our city. As a widowed senior citizen I am truly grateful and appreciative. A bowl of raspberries to the person who complained to the city to penalize this person with a fine. Helene Popowich *** The family of Gabriel Pinette would like to thank the staff at Deni House for their kind and considerate care of Gabriel from Dec. 2, 2011 to Jan. 21, 2013.

Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society expresses concerns about New Prosperity Mine proposal: part 2 Editor: The Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society (CCCS) would like to give its environmental perspective on Taseko Mines’ New Prosperity mine proposal. The 10 concerns are broken down into five parts in order to meet Tribune guidelines for letter length. The following points are brought forward by CCCS director Bill Lloyd, and cover some of our concerns.

Letters aLways weLcome

Part 2 (3.) Over-all Footprint of Prosperity Mine on the Chilcotin. This huge project in one of the last untouched and most pristine watersheds in British Columbia would leave a footprint similar to the Highland Valley. The mine and tailings pond as laid out in the current Environmental Impact Statement would be bordered to the west by the Taseko River and to the south by Beece Creek and Big Onion Lake.

However, Taseko’s own projections estimate it would take 33 years to extract the total orebody. Expansion would obviously magnify the impact on the natural drainage systems. Post-operations seepage and acid rock drainage contamination of the entire Taseko River watershed, which eventually reaches the Fraser River, would have drastic consequences. (4.) Deficiency of Water for

Mine Start-up Taseko Mines Ltd. maintains that surface water would be adequate for mine start-up. This assertion is highly questionable. It would take huge volumes of water to start the dam systems and initiate the concentration process. Other than the existing slowflowing and seasonally-variable inflows, the only apparent water sources would be the Taseko River and Fish Lake.

Would this mean a pumping station in the river and therefore an end to the ‘closed’ system proposed for Fish Lake? Or would the water level in Fish Lake have to be drastically lowered?

Linda-Lou Howarth Special to The Tribune Imagine you’re in your home, the kids are playing in the living room and you notice your horses acting all wild and running around with their tails in the air and heads high as they snort around the pen. Shelly Howarth Loring experienced this Sunday morning, Feb. 10, upon looking out her window towards the highway. She alerted her boys to look outside, as she quickly set up her camera to take pictures of the riders and cows. The cows made loud clickity clacking noises on Highway 20 as they made their way along.

bawl loudly in protest of the move. The horses made clop clop sounds on the pavement as the riders yelled “Haw! Hey Cow!” They cued their dogs to cut off a cow trying to turn back. A cattle drive — enough to make a rider envious watching the action and listening to the familiar sounds. The riders were hollering at the cows and the dogs, which were growling and snapping at the cows, which

made the cows bawl as they got moving faster while others just quietly mooed their way along. Little did they know at the end of their journey they would be quietly munching on hay and would forget about their unplanned morning walk! This is enough to catch anyone’s eyes — more than 100 head of cows ambling by your house, taking up the whole highway, bellowing or softly mooing as they clippity clack

Williams Lake Tribune Thursday, February 28, 2013 A9


Seniors advocate needs to be independent of government, critics say Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The seniors’ advocate legislation tabled last week will not create an advocate that is independent of government, critics of the legislation have suggested. “Last year the Ministry of Health consulted seniors and other stakeholders on their priorities for an advocate position, and independence was a clear top priority,” said BC Health Coalition cochair Rick Turner. “An independent seniors’ advocate would allow for arms-length assessment of seniors’ issues, similar to the role of the representative for children and youth and the BC Ombudsperson.” By contrast, a seniors’ advocate that is a part of government — as tabled with the Bill 10, the Seniors Advocate Act — will be limited to serving at the discretion of government and will therefore be unable to play the watchdog role that seniors need it to, BC Health Coalition noted. Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan said people criticizing the proposed legislation want a person modelled as a carbon copy of the child and youth advocate. “Anything less than that is no good, but we say there’s more than one way to change the world.” The seniors advocate position will be appointed by the govern-

ment, not by the legislature. “That is a key difference, I can see that,” he said, explaining the child and youth advocate is appointed by all the MLAs who form a hiring committee, much like the auditor general, and the ombudsperson. “The critics have a valid point because this person will be appointed by order in council, which means the cabinet of B.C. that is to say people like myself sitting on cabinet will make the decision, not the legislature as a whole.” Sultan agreed it is an “important difference” but emphasized in terms of what the person is going to be able to do it won’t have an impact. He or she will be given the assignment to make things better for seniors in a very broad “canvass” of responsibilities, he said. The advocate will fulfill that mandate by identifing work priorities, hire their own staff, appoint independently a council of advisors, and will have the power to gather information with a bit of a “mailed fist.” “With all of that the seniors advocate will make independent recommendations to the minister of state for seniors, to private companies if they are involved, and to the public. Anybody involved in the seniors world.”

Ralph Sultan Additionally, they will be able to issue press releases they’ve created, report once a year to the government, and be compensated in a manner befitting a senior official of the government. “We’re not talking about some clerk in the back office of the health ministry, we’re talking about someone with stature and compensation that goes with it.” The idea that anyone taking the job being a “toady” to the government is misplaced, he added. The quibbling, he suggested, is about how the person is being appointed. In terms of powers, Sultan argued they are broader than many officers of the legislature. Turner said the BC Health Coalition is pleased that the position is being created, but without a truly independent advocate, and in the absence of

other comprehensive action on the part of government to improve seniors’ care, systemic challenges will go unaddressed. “Bill 10 comes one year after the release of the BC Ombudsperson’s report on the state of seniors’ care in B.C. The Ministry of Health has fully implemented only four of the 141 recommendations made directly to the ministry since the report’s release, and partially implemented only approximately 25 per cent of the recommendations,” Turner added. “The Ombudsperson’s findings indicate that the Ministry of Health has, in many cases, failed to fulfill its leadership role for seniors’ care in our province,” says Turner. “Given that there is little evidence in the

2013 budget to suggest our government intends to take serious action on seniors’ care, we’re concerned that one advocate that is tied to government cannot fill that gap.” Sultan also clarified the seniors advocate will not run a complaint office. “If you run your life chasing complaints you will maybe make a few people happy but you’re not going to get much done constructively in terms of system.” The position is designed, rather, to focus on “standing back” to figure out what is going on, what could the government and private sector be doing differently so those complaints don’t arrive in the first place. “It doesn’t mean to say they ignore complaints, but this is not

going to be a caseworker. Chasing complaints does not add up to policy reform. I think the government has come up with a better way, although everyone doesn’t agree with it.” Cariboo Chilcotin Independent MLA candidate Gary Young said he is against the idea of more bureaucracy when there are already people in place in com-

munities advocating for seniors. “I want something done,” Young said. “A ‘new’ office would have more money diverted from seniors to plump up the bureaucracy and would not be an independent office. If people want a seniors Advocate then obviously the Minister of State for Seniors is not doing the job.”

Williams Lake Minor Fastball registration

Jude Jackson, 5, kicks the ball around with some friends Saturday in the Columneetza secondary gymnasium during Soccerfest, the Williams Lake Youth Soccer Association’s annual registration and fun day. Players came throughout the day to sign up for the upcoming outdoor soccer season, along with playing some fun games with WLYSA coaches.

Condors win zones; Thunder finish fourth Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The Williams Lake Thunder senior girls basketball team took fourth place on the weekend at the North Central Zone Basketball Championships in Williams Lake. The Thunder hosted Prince George’s College Heights, DP Todd, Kelly Road, Nechako Valley and Duchess Park at Williams Lake Secondary School for the tournament, which began Friday and wrapped up Saturday evening. The Thunder, who marched into the tournament as the fourth seed, finished the tournament with two wins and two losses to take fourth place. Meanwhile, the Duchess Park Condors blew through the competition, beating Nechako Valley in the final, to earn a berth at the provincial championships. Raj Lalli, coach of the Thunder, said it was a somewhat disappointing result at zones, but added, overall, the team put forth one of the most successful seasons WLSS has ever had.

“I think we were all a bit disappointed,” Lalli said. “But I think having the last month off didn’t help us at all. We hadn’t played in any tournaments since the middle of January so I think we lost our rhythm a bit.” WLSS opened with a 60-57 win over College Heights, but dropped its second game to the Condors, 78-39, moving them to the bottom half of the bracket to attempt to play through the back door to the final. Next, WLSS thumped Kelly Road, 47-20, before moving on to meet College Heights again in the quarterfinal. There, in a seesaw battle, College Heights squeaked out a 60-53 win after the Thunder got into foul trouble late. “That was probably the best game of the tournament for us, even though we lost that one,” Lalli said. “That was the most competitive game we had all weekend — offensively and defensively — it was just back and forth.” Thunder player Ana Lomavatu was named a first-team all-star

Diaz also won the free throw contest Saturday. Lalli added, overall, the girls should be proud of their season. “I think overall this was defi-

nitely one of the most successful season WLSS has had,” she said. “I think even if you look at the winning record — we won the Fulton tournament in Vernon and the Columneetza tournament here — and we came out of zones with two wins and two losses.”

It was a tough weekend for a Williams Lake curling rink competing at the Tim Hortons B.C. Senior Men’s Curling Championship Feb. 1117 in Trail. Co-skips Ken Teskey and Ron Bisaro, and Ken Kvist (second) and Ian Lanki (lead) played seven games in the round robin, losing all seven. Teskey skipped the first two games and Bisaro skipped the final five draws. Bisaro said a lot of the games were close and went to 10 ends, but the consistency of the other teams was too much to overcome. “It was a really good experience,” Bisaro said. “Every team is solid from lead to skip. They just do not miss important shots and it would be nice to play at this level on a regular basis. It would really improve our game.” The first-place team from the round robin automatically advanced to the final, while the

This year’s senior men’s curling champions were the Craig Lepine rink, of Langley, who knocked off Tom Shypitka’s Cranbrook rink, 5-2, in the final. The senior men’s bronze medalists were team Myron Nichol from the Castlegar Curling Club. Of the eight teams

competing at the provincial championships one was from Vancouver Island, three were from the Lower Mainland, one was from the Okanagan, one was from the Kootenays, one was from Trail and one was from the North. Teskey’s rink qualified by winning a regional zone playdown held in Williams Lake in January. Teskey added the

provincials were a great learning experience for his rink. “A lot of these players play a high level of competition on a weekly basis,” Teskey said. “They have coaches and some have played in the Brier before.” Lepine’s rink will now travel to Prince Edward Island to play for the National Championship in March.

Six lakecity grapplers land provincial berths Six members of the Williams Lake Wrestling Club have qualified to compete at the provincial championships this weekend in Duncan. The WLWC sent eight competitors to Prince George last weekend for the qualifying North Central Zone Championships. “The way zones work is all athletes from grade 8 to 12 compete in the same division in different weight classes,” said WLWC president and head coach Sonia Conrod. “The top four boys and the top three girls qualify for provincials. Just making it to provincials in grade 8 is a huge accomplishment.” Grade 8 grapplers Mikaela Lemon (75 kilogram) and Haileigh Stubitch (51 kg), both battled their ways to gold

medals to qualify. Danielle Schultz, in the 47-kg weight class, despite an injury, still came home with a silver medal. Makaela Haller, in the 57-kg division, just missed the podium taking fourth in her division. “All of the ladies did amazingly,” Conrod said. On the boys’ side Braden Conrod added another gold medal to his collection after sweeping through the 54-kg competition. Grade 10 wrestler Adam Sutherland, who has just recently joined the club, competed in the 60-kg class taking sixth. Grade 12 wrestler Conlan Sprickerhoff, also in the 60-kg class, picked up a silver medal and a provincial berth. Peter Fayowski also fought to a bronze medal

Yes2it introduces students to career trades LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune There was an invasion of enthusiasm at the Thompson Rivers University trades department recently when 85 Grade 7 students from School District 27 arrived for the Yes2it program. Gordon Armour, joint trades coordinator with School District 27 and TRU, said that the program introduces elementary school students to five different trades areas: carpentry, welding, electrical, millwright and mechanics. “We have a dozen trades people working with the students for this program; there are post-secondary students and instructors from TRU as well. The TRU carpentry program is not running this year — it runs every other year — so a retired TRU carpentry instructor came back to volunteer, as well as carpenters from both mines and shop teachers from the school district. “The real neat mentorship is the post-secondary students with the Grade 7 kids. It’s a day out of their regular instruction and they really kind of take over with the younger students — it’s a great leadership experience,” he said. “The Grade 7 kids walk away with something they made, new skills, new awareness and new options for their future. They make an extension cord, a wooden toy box and a metal boot scraper.” He explained that the cost is about $10,000 to put on the program, adding that, although there is a grant to cover part of the cost, additional support is critical. “The two mines work closely with us, going to their suppliers for equipment and supplies, and this support is crucial to this program. Home Hardware, EB Horseman and AJ Forsyth all donate supplies,” he continued.

Below, Cameron Combs a Grade 7 student at 150 Mile House, inspects a block of copper with Jack Nerbas a millwright Gibraltar Mines.

“Finning Tractor came with a big diesel engine, showing the kids how to trouble shoot on a computer and two millwrights from Gibraltar were here showing them the ropes.” He also said that several parents

came to TRU to watch the program in action. “We’re always trying to break through and get parents involved. There were approximately 30 parents at the pre-program information

session the night before. “We go over trades information, talk about areas their kids can get into when they get into the seniors grades and dispel a few myths about the trades,” he stated. “The feedback from parents is very positive. They said it’s amazing—one parent said her son was having a blast.” TRU commercial transport student Janea Pichet said that it was her first time with the Yes2it program and that she thoroughly enjoyed it. “I’m loving it,” she said. “It’s a great mix of boys and girls; it’s good to see all these girls here today. It gives them heads up about what they can do in the trades.” She worked with the Grade 7 students in the mechanics department, showing them how to manhandle lug nuts on large tires. “Just in everyday life it’s good for a woman to know how to change a tire,” she said. Gibraltar Mine millwright Zack Nerbas talked with the Grade 7 students about what a millwright does and what it takes to become one. Each student got to take away a small slab of pure copper. “We make three by three slabs of pure copper at the mine; 98 per cent pure,” he said. “We cut them up into small pieces and brought them here today for the students.” He said that talked to the kids about how he get into the industry. “We talked about what we do to start our careers and where we can go with them,” he explained. “We brought in some of the tools and equipment we work with to show the students. When I was in grades 8, 9 and 10 I didn’t even know what a millwright was. I didn’t know that until I started my apprenticeship. These kids are not too young for this — there is a lot of enthusiasm here today.”

SD27/TRU ACE IT students receive scholarships Brandon (John) Schwalm and Arlen Goodwillie have been awarded Secondary School Apprentice awards of $1000 each. Both students were enrolled as a secondary school apprentice, and were earning dual credit towards high school graduation and the first 480 hours of on the job training, says program coordinator Gordon Armour. Both Schwalm and Goodwillie completed 480 work-based hours, maintained a C+ average in Grade 12 subjects and completed 900 work based hours by the end of the calendar year to qualify for the scholarships. Schwalm started his apprenticeship with Mueller Electric and is

still continuing with them. Brandon logged over 1000 work-based hours while a secondary school apprentice. He completed level 1 Technical Training through the ACE IT program in the final semester of his Grade 12 year. Arlen Goodwillie began his apprenticeship, logging workbased hours with Taz Construction in 100 Mile House where he recorded over 1,200 work-based hours towards his apprenticeship. Arlen was successful in obtaining both level 1 and level 2 technical training credit in the Residential Construction Program through the ACE IT program. He is continuing his apprenticeship with Sprucelee construction in Williams Lake.

Heartwarming Red Dog next up for film club Krista Liebe Special to The Tribune The next film of the Williams Lake Film Club will go ahead as planned. It will be shown this coming Tuesday, March 5, at the Cariboo Memorial Complex, Gibraltar Room, at 7 p.m. Yes, Red Dog is coming to Williams Lake. After roaming the North West Australian Outback for years, having even a statue put up in his memory in Dampier, I am sure he will find his way into your hearts. We first meet Red Dog when he is dying in the back of a pub. It is the 1970s, the place is a little mining town seemingly in the middle of nowhere, filled with great characters, but the greatest character of them all is Red Dog, an Australian Kelpie. His story is told in flash backs from the local barman, a

After his master dies, legend has it that Red Dog roamed the Australian Outback far and wide, even hitching a tanker to Japan for a

short while, then returning to Dampier to die. No wonder this film is huge in Australia, it simply has it all. You will laugh, you will cry, there is some sweet romance, the sense of time and place is great, cinematography is superb, and Red Dog pulls it all to-

gether in a most wonderful and joyous way. And not to forget, I bet you will cry a few tears as well. This once again is a film you will not want to miss. A little aside — On Dec. 18, 2012, one of the biggest news items in Australia was that Koko, the Red Cloud Kelpie which starred in this hit Australian film, had died peacefully in Perth. Red Dog producer Nelson Woss, who became Koko’s owner after forming a close bond with him during the film shoot, said he was devastated to have lost his best mate.

The Williams Lake Young Naturalists participated in the Great Back Yard Bird Count on Feb. 16. The weather was beautiful for a short walk led by birding enthusiast Cathy Koot. Eight species and 47 individual birds were sighted. This is up from four species and 21 individual birds sighted last year. Results will be forwarded to Cornell University for inclusion in their international bird studies. After the walk, participants made origami bird beaks to explore the functions of different beak shapes. Here Alexis McCombe, Ella and Timu Kruuz, Wayne Tilford and Jessabelle Atkinson-Trelenberg test out their origami beaks on different food types.

Coola Valley welcomed Edith and her family to the valley. On May 24, 1937 Edith married the love of her life, Andrew Richard Ratcliff, who also predeceased Edith, Sept. 11, 2011, having shared 74 years of happy married life. The last few years Edith has made the Bella Coola Hospital her home, as a well cared for extended care patient. A grave side service was held at the Bella Coola Cemetery Feb. 16 with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Bella Coola Branch president, Dennis Tippie officiating.

The service was followed by a celebration of life at the Bella Coola Valley Legion where many friends and relatives gathered. The family is deeply grateful to the Bella Coola Hospital, doctors, nurses, caregivers and staff and to dear friends Mike and Pricilla Ericksteen who adopted Edith as a surrogate mother, spending hours of love and care with Edith when family members more distant could not. The family is also thankful for the time and dedication of niece Juanita Neidrauer, and granddaughter, Gwena

Ratcliff, who brought Gwen’s children to visit Edith as often as she possibly could. In memory of Edith, donations can be made to the Bella Coola Hospital for the purchase of necessary care equipment.

SENIORS SCENE Hearing seminar coming up Saturday, March 9 fect both males and females some people with a normal hearing threshold may experience tinnitus. Tinnitus is believed to be initiated from auditory cortical regions of the brain — not the inner ear — but origins are still uncertain. Causes are varied and sometimes unknown. Sources associated with tinnitus include loud noise. Excessive wax build up in the canal can also increase the intensity of tinnitus. Tot-toxic medications may also be a factor. Trauma to the head and neck region, facial abnormalities and jaw movement may also induce tinnitus. Stress levels and lack of sleep also affect tinnitus. There are no cures for tinnitus. No approved medications for permanent elimination of tinnitus are available. There are several factors that are known to intensify the condition of tinnitus including: alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine, aspirin, stress and fatigue, exposure to loud noises, food with excessive amounts of sugar and salt. Neutral “cover-up” sounds such as soft music or a fan decrease the perception

of tinnitus in quiet situation such as when trying to have a restful night’s sleep. Tinnitus retraining therapy, stress management and relaxation techniques all help reduces the effects of tinnitus. Many hearing aid wearers report that their tinnitus becomes less noticeable when using hearing aid devices. Hearing aids help increase the amount of sound you want to hear while reducing effects of tinnitus.

Tinnitus is one of many types of hearing loss that can affect quality of life and is a serious issue for many people. Tinnitus is commonly described as ringing in the ear(s) or head and is often perceived as a roaring, hissing, chirping or whistling. It is a perception of sound when no external sound is audible. The perceived loudness varies from person to person ringing from very quiet to very loud. It is estimated that 20 per cent of the population suffers from tinnitus. Tinnitus can af-

“They call the Cariboo home” First Nation leaders share stories at museum talking circle Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune Cecilia DeRose and Agness Jack were among the speakers sharing their stories at the Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin’s Talking Circle event held last Saturday, Feb. 23 to celebrate Heritage Week. CECILIA DEROSE Cecilia DeRose was brought into this world by a midwife at Esket (Alkali Lake). “My mother was Emilia Joe and my dad was Matthew Dick. His father was Dick Johnson, and my dad and his brother went by their dad’s first name. DeRose says she was raised on her family’s meadow near Lac la Hache and only came to the Esket village for Christmas and Easter or for funerals. “We spent most of our time in the meadows and came to Williams Lake for groceries two times a year.” She says the main attraction for her at stampede was Squaw Hall. “There were 10 kids in our family and I was fourth in line. Everything was hard work. I had to do chores like my brothers.” She says her father had hay contracts at various ranches like Circle S, Alkali Lake and Empire Valley. He also guided for Buster Hamilton and eventually got his own guiding and trapping area. “We lived on moose, deer, rabbit, squirrel, muskrat or beaver; all the meat out there. “We planted a garden at Alkali and harvested the potatoes in the fall.” DeRose says they gathered medicines and berries and her mother always kept chickens. “When we went travelling anywhere, my mother always hauled our chickens with us in the wagon or sleigh to Alkali and back again.” Though most kids went to the mission at nine years old, DeR-

Cecilia DeRose talks about her life at Esket (Alkali Lake). ose says she begged her mother to let her go at seven years old. “I begged to go to school because I thought life would be easier there. “School was only from 9 o’clock to noon, then we had to work. At the mission we weren’t allowed to do anything with our culture.” Cecilia says the kids had “Indian” names for the Mission sisters. “One Superior Mother, we never saw her smile. When she left, a younger one took over. We called her the Owl because we thought she could see behind her head.” At the mission they only kept children until they were 16 years old, and highest grade they offered was Grade 8. “So that’s all the schooling that I got. They were afraid to educate me any more.” AGNESS JACK Agness Jack hails from the Canoe Creek/Dog Creek Sec-

wepemc community, about 100 kilometres down the Fraser River from Williams Lake. She says her people’s relationship with settlers moving into the country began in the mid-1800s. “The original Gold Rush Trail came over the mountain from Lillooet to Canoe Creek and Dog Creek,” Jack said. Her grandmother, Susan Jim, lived to 110 years old and was the last living member of her generation in the community. “She talked of how the Canoe and Dog Creek members worked alongside the first settlers, both the Chinese and Caucasian. The Chinese people worked along the river panning for gold.” Agness says the Chinese people took care of the laundry in the Dog Creek Hotel. “Sometimes my grandmother worked with them. She didn’t know any Chinese or English, and they didn’t know any Secwepemc or English, but when they told a story and laughed, she

Agness Jack from Canoe Creek/Dog Creek Secwepemc community talks about her family history in the region. laughed along with them. And when she told a story in her language and laughed, they laughed too. So they shared their cultures through laughter.” Agness says her 94-year-old mother hears young people talking about wanting to go back to the old days, but she is skeptical whether they are capable of the hard work it required to survive in those times. “The work to tan a hide is more than most people realize. In the old days people would pick berries and sell them to get money to buy things necessary for the family.” Agnes says her father was a cowboy and in the early days people made their own entertainment. “People brought their own bucking stock or whatever horses they needed for the rodeo. It took us two days by horse and wagon to go to the Williams Lake Stampede from Dog Creek.” She says her parents worked

together as a team to do whatever had to be done. “There was no such thing as men’s work and women’s work. My dad was quite a good cook, and my mom worked with my dad trapping, skinning and selling pelts.” Agness is complimentary of Hillary Place who owned the Dog Creek Store and bought the fur pelts from the local trappers. “He knew how hard the people worked to get the fur so he always showed the books, and just how little he took in the way of a commission.” She says people of different cultural backgrounds have a history of working together. “Our people worked alongside the ranchers. The early Chinese settlers show us how to make water flumes to carry water. “Our ancestors didn’t have time to fight with the settlers and gold miners. We walked side-byside to get where we are today. Sometimes we forget that.”
