2013 B.C. ELECTION

Few challengers for Kootenay West

Incumbent Katrine Conroy only candidate to declare running for riding BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

It looks like a one-horse race in Kootenay West for the upcoming B.C. Election in mid-May. The only candidate declared for the general election, 64 days away on May 14, is the current member of the Legislative Assembly for the riding, Katrine Conroy. When contacted by phone, neither the provincial Liberals, Conservatives or the Green Party had a list of candidate names to release to the public to begin the push for May. The lack of competition surprised Conroy, who had already begun her campaign for re-election weeks ago. She said there were a couple of her colleagues who did not have any competition either but they were still moving ahead. “It is a bit odd,” she said about the nearly fallow field of candidates. “But it doesn’t matter. We are still working hard and we have our campaign team meeting every Wednesday ... Locally we are getting ready.” Conroy has held the seat since the riding was first created in 2008—and the preceding West Kootenay-Boundary seat since 2005—winning the last election in 2009 with two thirds of the votes (12,126). In that year it was a fourway race that included Liberal candidate Brenda Binnie (4,072 votes, 22.4 per cent), Andy Morel of the Green Party (1,791 votes, 9.84 per cent) and Zachary Crispin of the Communist Party (204 votes, 1.13 per cent). In all, there were 18,193 votes cast—with 88 rejected ballots—with a voter turnout of 59.1 per cent.

Community pitches in to help finish home BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

Enumerators Wynn Connolly (left) and Tammy Gallamore set up shop in downtown Trail on Saturday to update elector information and register new voters. The next stop is Waneta Plaza this weekend, but Connolly said people could register online (elections.bc.ca) or call 1-800-6618683 for more information. The electoral district is made up of parts of the regional districts of Central Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary, as well as the communities of Trail, Castlegar and Nakusp. The B.C. Conservative Party has not yet nominated anyone in Kootenay West, but they do have some people going through the process of nomination, said Kristy Fredericks, the party’s director of policy research and communications. Conservative candidates have to submit an application that goes through a review committee and once they are

approved they can start planning their nomination days. There was no Conservative candidate in the 2009 election. Fredericks said the party will be running a candidate in the electoral district, and every riding across the province except Delta South where Vicky Huntington holds a seat. “Vicky Huntington is Conservative all in but name,” she said. “We made a promise to her early on that we wouldn’t run against her.” Rebecca Helps, executive director of Green Party, said there still is quite a bit of interest from people wanting

to be candidates for Kootenay West. “It’s hard because we don’t have a lot of members on the ground in that area. So often it is just happen stance when somebody comes forward,” she said. The party members are “working networks and hoping someone will come forward on their own,” said Helps, and would like to have someone in place by at least April 1 as a final day. “I doubt that anybody will be coming forward at this point that wants to run a significant campaign because See LIBERALS, Page 3

Since January, the hammering of nails on a corner lot in East Trail has been the sound of a community coming together. When Frank Kotyk died suddenly in a car accident in December, left to mourn with his loving family, were many coworkers, friends and fellow church members. Aside from that, there was the issue “During of the shell of his the funeral, dream retirement many people home; a property the Kotyks had approached taken ownership of my mom in November. to say they “Frank fell head over heels in love wanted to with the property,” help.” said wife Nancy Kotyk. DANAYA KOTYK Kotyk said that in a few weeks, Frank had ripped the existing house to the foundation and had already put up a few new walls. “Then he was killed in a car accident.” Kotyk said that she was left with a house that was worth nothing, and a lack of funds to finish the renovation. That’s when the community kicked into action. “During the funeral, many people approached my mom to say they wanted to help,” said daughter Danaya Kotyk. “Dad knew a lot of people and they wanted to donate time to finish things up.” Mrs. Kotyk said that she heard through the grapevine that the carpenters at Teck (Frank’s crew) had passed around a bulletin asking tradesmen to volunteer time to complete the job in memory of Frank. So now, the “work bees” meet every other Saturday at the site to volunteer their labour to complete the renovation of Frank’s dream retirement home. On the last scheduled Saturday, there was a large group in attendance, including several electricians, carpenters, a plumber and other workers, said Mrs. Kotyk. See CHURCH, Page 3

Taking away bidding room

T

oday, I will take a break from the beginner bridge columns and discuss a hand that happened at the Kootenay Jewel bridge club (Every Monday at the Warfield Hall at 11:30am). The bidding: There are two ways West can come to a bid of four spades. 1. If he has six spades, he opens a weak two bid of two spades. If he has seven spades, he opens a three-level preempt of three spades and if

he has eight spades, he opens a four-level preempt. It follows that an opening bid of five spades would show a nine-card suit. 2. Another method is to count losers. West

Ron Clarke, owner of JBS, is a regular contributor to the Trail Times with his column “Tax Tips & Pits”

has six losers and does not want to give the opponents more than the 600 or so they can get for game. He can be down three doubled to give the opponents 500 points. This is much better than giving them 600 or more. In both methods, the preempt is made with less than an opening hand. It should be a poor ten points or less. A rule of thumb that I like is: If you would go to game opposite a one notrump opener by partner then do not preempt in first or second seat. South has a hand worthy of competition and makes a takeout bid of 4NT. A double of four spades would be penalty while a double of four hearts would be takeout. North chooses clubs and South asks North to make an equal level correction by bidding five diamonds. This bid shows both diamonds and hearts while denying clubs.

The 4NT bid originally showed support for all unbid suits. North chooses diamonds by passing. The play: West has a natural lead of the ace of spades from ace and king. The defenders will get their two aces and South will make five diamonds for 600 points. East has two cover cards, and if he had two spades, he could safely raise partner to six spades to further

the preempt. Because of East’s singleton spade, he could bid five spades. He should not, however, because one does not sacrifice over five of a minor. It could push them to a makeable six. Furthermore, if they should have been in 3NT, five of a minor will be a bad result for them and one does not risk giving them 800. Notes: All columns may be viewed at http:// watsongallery.ca.

Church involved in project FROM PAGE 1 Even on the Saturdays that aren’t a scheduled work bee day, there are small groups of people who still show up to work around the property, she said. Pastor Bryan Henry, from the Christian Fellowship Church, was involved with the project from the beginning. “I helped Frank build his workshop, the first project on this property,” he said. “When he died we all realized we had to finish this for Frank and Nancy.” The pastor reflected about how much Frank loved to renovate, and said that he was an integral part of four missions the church took to Central America, to build houses for the needy. “He was a genuine guy, the real deal.” If renovations proceed according to schedule, the house should be finished by the summer, said Mrs. Kotyk. “He was a man of vision, and in a way this house will be a standing legacy of him.”

On Saturday in East Trail, worker bees volunteered time and labour to install house wrap on the Kotyk house. If the renovations stay on schedule, Frank Kotyk’s dream retirement home should be completed by the summer.

Liberals seeking Kootenay West candidates FROM PAGE 1 chances are if they are going to do that, they would have already have come forward,” she said. The B.C. Liberal Party has organizers in the West Kootenay field that are talking to potential candidates, said Sam Oliphant, communications officer for the party. Once the party is ready to move forward with a candidate, the name will be vetted through the local riding association, then a nomination

meeting will be scheduled. “We want to obviously have our candidates in the field as soon as possible, but we don’t have a specific date set,” Oliphant said. Conroy said it will be hard for those who are stepping forward right now as a last minute candidate. There is a lot of work beforehand that needs to be done to stage an election campaign before the writ is even dropped. “It’s not easy to run. For 28 days you are on the go, you are reaching out to people,

talking to people, discussing the issues, talking about what your policies will be. You want to be prepared for that,” she said. “And you need the time to do it.” Elections BC is conducting an enumeration and updating the voters list for the May 2013 Provincial General Election. Register to vote or update your voter registration with the online voter registration system at https://eregister. electionsbc.gov.bc.ca/ovr/ welcome.aspx.

Voters must show identification to receive a ballot. The types of identification that can be used are one document issued by the Government of B.C. or Canada that contains your name, photograph and residential address, such as a B.C. driver’s licence, B.C. Identification Card (BCID), or B.C. Services Card or two documents that contain the voter’s name. At least one of the documents must also contain the voter’s residential address.

The villages of Montrose and Fruitvale have pulled out of the regional Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP) at Stage 2 of the process, opting to go it alone in delivering waste services to their respective municipalities. The high cost of regional waste service to the respective communities was cited as the reason for the exodus, with Fruitvale being required to ante up close to $9 million, while Montrose had to add in another $7 million. Those were initial construction costs and then there would be ongoing maintenance costs, said Lila Cresswell, the chief administrative officer for the Village of Fruitvale. Cresswell said Fruitvale council commissioned a separate study of the long term options of the Fruitvale Sewer Treatment Plant to see what it could get for the $9 million it was expected to pay for the regional service. “It came in that, very simply, we could have a very state-of-the-art plant. Also that we would not need to build one until about 2040,” she said. “So it wasn’t a good deal.” Fruitvale council voted earlier this year to exit the regional LWMP at Stage 2 of the process, while on Dec. 31 the Village of Montrose council did the same. Stage 1 of the LWMP was completed and approved by the province in 2008. That stage of the plan identified the need for the mandatory inclusion of the communities of Fruitvale and Montrose into Stage 2 planning process due to discharges to a small fish bearing stream. During the Stage 2 process, the province communicated that it was not mandatory for the participation the villages of Fruitvale and Montrose in the regional plan, and the municipalities pulled out. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) owns the Columbia Pollution Control Centre (Columbia PCC), the primary treatment sewerage facility that provides regional wastewater collection, treatment and disposal for the municipalities of Trail, Rossland and Warfield as well as the two smaller adjacent communities of Oasis and Rivervale. RDKB chief administrative officer John MacLean said when the LWMP was first undertaken in 2007 it was to deal with the original three partners and the Beaver Valley communities were an add on to the process. “The province wanted us to see if it there was a financial make sense case and there wasn’t one for those two communities,” MacLean said. The last draft of the LWMP will now be vetted through the RDKB’s LWMP steering committee. A resolution was passed last week to take the plan out to the public for consultation. Ultimately, there will need to be a tax increase to cover the $25 million in capital costs.

Provincial Abbotsford

Vancouver to host 2014 Grey Cup

Longer waits expected at border crossings The Abbotsford News Border crossings that are often jammed with shoppers heading south may soon get even more congested as the U.S. government is forced to lay off thousands of border employees. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun cutting employee hours and is slated to furlough 5,000 more staff by early April after Congress and President Barack Obama failed to reach a comprehensive deal by March 1 to reduce federal spending, triggering automatic spending cuts. The initial cuts at Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are already resulting in reports of longer processing lines at some U.S. airports. CBP officials predict waits up to 50 per cent longer at major airports – four hours or longer at peak times – and a doubling of peak waits to five hours or more at the busiest land crossings. “Travellers should adjust their trip itineraries to account for unexpected delays,” the department warned in a statement. The longest southbound lines at Lower Mainland crossings are weekend mornings and they could get much longer because the use of overtime is now banned. “They hold shifts over longer or call shifts in earlier to keep as many lines open as possible – that won’t be happening,” said Ken Oplinger, president of the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce. “We’re thinking it could add an extra 15 to 30 minutes onto the regular lines.” Nexus card holders should continue to get speedy clearance but new applicants face longer approval times due to an expected surge

in demand. It’s hoped the arbitrary across-the-board cuts will be unpalatable to both Republicans and Democrats, spurring them to reach a deal before border slowdowns cause serious economic damage. “If this goes on into the summer that’s when we’re really going to have an issue,” Oplinger said. “On a summer weekend we can get two- to three-hour lineups and we could be adding 45 minutes to an hour on top of that at those peak times.” One factor that might slow cross-border shopping is the recent slide of the loonie. The dollar is down to around 97 cents U.S. and Oplinger said a further drop to below 95 cents may begin to reduce the number of southbound shoppers from Canada. Despite the anticipated border waits, Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce executive director Allan Asaph (at left) doesn’t think it will discourage cross-border shoppers. “Quite honestly, no. I don’t think it will have any effect.” According to Asaph, border staffing cutbacks will only be felt during peak periods like weekends. “Cross-border shopping is a huge issue for us,” he said. “We’re not saying to shop exclusively locally, but recognize the value of the dollars that you do spend locally.” Asaph also said the border lines don’t tell the whole story. “When we see the border lineups, that’s the physical shopping that takes place. There’s a huge amount of shopping on the Internet that we never see.” Truckers are also being warned they face significant delays at the borders in the weeks ahead if the U.S. budget impasse continues.

British Columbia Premier Christy Clark looks at the Grey Cup after the CFL announced Vancouver will host the 2014 Grey Cup championship football game during a news conference in Vancouver on Friday.

Chinese tax apology should not be delayed THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - The grandson of an Chinese immigrant forced to pay a head tax says British Columbia’s premier shouldn’t let her political woes interfere with delivering a meaningful apology for the policy. Victor Wong with the Chinese Canadian National Council is wondering about Christy Clark’s suggestion that the timing around an announcement for redress may be affected by the ethnic vote scandal that has rocked her government. Clark made it clear on CTV’s Question Period on Sunday she may need to postpone making any apology so there won’t be any accusations that she is playing politics with the issue. “I think it’s the right thing to do to apologize for the Chinese head tax, I am very committed to that,” she said. “I think, though, the apology needs to be seen outside of politics. It needs to be an absolutely genuine apology and if the discussion about all the rest of this is going to taint that, I say we wait.” Clark added that there are two MLAs in the Liberal caucus who are the children of those who paid the head tax, and that they are very passionate about seeing an apology through. “They’ve been working at this for years.” A Liberal government docu-

A P S

ment surfaced in late February suggesting the party would attempt to gain “quick wins” at the ballot box in May by issuing formal apologies to ethnic communities for historic wrongs. But Wong said members of his community see themselves as apart from the political firestorm because the government has already offered an apology several times. “The main message to Christy Clark is to say, ‘premier, please meet with the head tax families ... and please appoint a representative to negotiation a genuine apology,” he said in an

interview. “If you say ‘genuine apology,’ then we will take you at your word. If you mean genuine apology, then it has to be an apology that we’re willing to accept.” He said apologies will be considered real if the government also offers the 3,000 ChineseCanadian families that were affected a meaningful financial settlement. “If we wanted just an apology, we would have got it back in 2011 or 2012 or early 2013,” he said. “It’s been offered to us. We’ve rejected it.”

Five options presented for Massey Tunnel

THE CANADIAN PRESS VICTORIA - The B.C. government has laid out five options for the George Massey Tunnel between Richmond and Delta, including upgrading the existing tunnel or building a new bridge to replace it. The options were unveiled as the government launched the second phase of public consultations on the future of the crossing of the south arm of the Fraser River. The other options include building a new tunnel, twinning the tunnel with a second span and building a new crossing further east of the existing tunnel. The government is seeking the public’s opinion on several issues related to the crossing, including traffic congestion, safety, the environment and social and economic impacts. The government says the Massey Tunnel carries more than 80,000 vehicles each day and has about 10 to 15 years of useful life remaining.

Media descends on Parish of papal contender

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Adrian Wyld

Canadian network television satellite trucks set up outside the church in La Motte, Que Monday. A media centre was being set up Monday in the hometown of Canada’s presumed papal contender, as the tiny community prepares for a journalistic invasion during the upcoming vote to choose the next pontiff. With Marc Cardinal Ouellet considered among the papal front-runners, people in this northwestern Quebec village of 439 people began transforming the basement of his old church into a media room.

New powers aimed for N.W.T. THE CANADIAN PRESS YELLOWKNIFE The stroke of a pen has brought the Northwest Territories a step closer to more provincelike powers. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and N.W.T. Premier Bob McLeod signed a draft agreement at the legislature Monday that marks the end of talks to loosen the territory’s ties with Ottawa. “The heavy lifting is done. The issues are resolved and negotiators have reached consensus on the terms of a final devolution agreement,” Harper told those who were invited to the legislature to mark the occasion. “Our government believes that the opportunities and challenges here would be better handled by the people who understand them best, that is to say, you who live here in the Northwest Territories. “Whenever possible you should be making the decisions about regional matters. That, ladies and gentlemen, is what devolution is all about.” The deal, which is still subject to public input, would put control over its resources in the hands of the territory’s northerners for the first time.

It would also give them a big chunk of the royalties those resources produce money that would be shared with the five of seven N.W.T. aboriginal governments that have signed on. The signed document isn’t the final version of the deal - just the final text reached by negotiators. Devolution, which does not mean full provincial status for the territories, is expected to come into force on April 1, 2014. Of the three northern territories, only the Yukon controls its own resources. Negotiations with Nunavut have begun, but have a long way to go. The prime minister

pointed to the Yukon’s experience with devolution as an example of what the N.W.T. can hope to achieve. “We need only to look to the West to see how people flourish when they have power over their lives,” said Harper, who added that unemployment has gone down and investment has increased since the western-most territory was granted more power over itself over a decade ago. A voice for northerners is paramount, McLeod said last week, when he promised the territorial legislature that the public will have unprecedented opportunities to com-

ment on the deal. McLeod has also promised that members of the legislative assembly will have a voice. Backbenchers, who function as a kind of opposition in the N.W.T.’s non-party consensus government, have complained that the talks have been consistently held behind closed doors. It’s not clear how much scope northerners and their elected representatives will have to affect any changes to the draft signed Monday. Nor is it clear how those consultations will be carried out, or how the legislature will be involved.

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Canada’s real estate bonanza of the past decade has come to end and the long-term trend as one of the most profitable places to invest is also not encouraging, a new research paper from the TD Bank argues. The “special report” from one of Canada’s largest banks makes the case that gains in housing prices have been exceptionally strong over the last 10 years, even when accounting for a sharp drop during the 200809 recession. But now is the time for a bit of a payback. The report does not predict a collapse in house prices as some analysts have suggested. In fact, it sees prices rebounding after a few years of a correction to as high as eight per cent. However, the longer term trend is for home price gains to average about two per cent over the next 10 years - flat once inflation is taken into account, says TD chief economist Craig Alexander. “I do not think we have a housing bubble in Canada,” said Alexander. “We have had abnormal strength in the market during a period of low interest rates and when rates go up over the next three years, you will get a cooling and weaker prices, but not a permanent shock and not a sharp correction.” The bank says tighter rules for borrowers and lenders are only

point. Still, the report makes clear that the next decade for housing will be significantly weaker than the previous three. Since 1980, home prices have climbed on average by 5.4 per cent annually, including a spike of seven per cent a year in the last 10 years. By contrast, TD expects prices to fall in the next two or three years, rising to average annual increases of 3.5 per cent after 2015 for an average annual gain of two per cent overall in the upcoming decade. In terms of return on investment, real estate will not reap the bonanza of the past decade, but remains relatively attractive because profits on a primary residence are tax free, the report points out. Somewhat surprisingly, the report predicts Vancouver and Toronto, along with Victoria, Edmonton and Calgary will continue to outpace the national average in terms of home prices over the next 10 years.

part of the reason to expect prices to moderate. Other contributing factors include the aging population, modest growth in both the population and the economy and, eventually, higher interest rates. The bank thinks the market could correct by as much as eight per cent over the next three years, but Alexander said it is possible that prices won’t fall as much as that. Some forecasters, including Capital Economists, have predicted a bigger correction is in the offing, arguing that houses in Canada may be overpriced by as much as 25 per cent. But Alexander says that exaggerates the problem, believing the overvaluation is closer to 10 per cent. The problem with the housing collapse scenario, says Alexander, is that typically a sharp correction needs a trigger in terms of a steep increase in interest rates or unemployment, both of which appear unlikely at this

Ethnic strategy is nothing new in politics

Liberal caucus staffer handed the NDP opposition an internal memo setting out a strategy for ethnic “outreach” that strayed into forbidden territory, suggesting that ethnic-friendly government events could be staged and participants’ names collected and turned over to the party. “This secret plan clearly demonstrates the Liberals are deliberately folding government resources and staff into their party’s campaign machinery, despite rules that forbid this,” thundered NDP house leader John Horgan.

“We’ve seen this before, with the Liberals’ efforts to run a secret committee to subvert the public process around Burnaby Hospital, and in the attack website created by caucus staff and launched by the Liberal party.” Casual observers might see this as a disturbing new development in misuse of public resources. It’s disturbing, all right, but it’s hardly new. The “attack website” Horgan refers to is a case in point. While a website targeting NDP leader Adrian Dix was being cooked up in the B.C. Liberal bunker, a similar effort was being developed in NDP research down the hall. This partisan message detailed all the worthwhile things that could be done with the government’s $15 million advertising budget singing the praises of the government’s “jobs plan.” But this one carried the logo of the NDP caucus, so it was within the rules. The average person, see-

ing two groups of staff on the public payroll, each slagging the other, might not detect much of a difference. The biggest headline from the leaked memo was its reference to generating “quick wins” for the election campaign by staging apologies for historic racial injustices. It mentioned how former premier Gordon Campbell delivered a solemn apology in 2008 for the decision to turn away a ship carrying Sikh refugees from Vancouver

harbour – shortly after the outbreak of the First World War. What does a modern provincial premier accomplish by apologizing for a federal immigration decision made in 1915? Why would another premier now feel the need to apologize for a federal “head tax” imposed on Chinese immigrants from 1885 to 1923? The answer is obvious. Again, don’t expect much to change with an NDP government. Asked last week if he would stage an apology for the head tax, Dix delivered a well-rehearsed history lesson that made it clear he is anxious to do so. Welcome to politics in an urbanized, globalized media culture. It’s more important to put on a show than to do the right thing. Hospitals are announced three times before they’re built, then announced again when they are staffed. Politics is a lucra-

tive career. Former B.C. Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt is one of the additional “outreach” staff hand-picked by Clark. The B.C. Liberals retort that the NDP caucus has a similar staffer named Gabriel Yiu, who has taken three leaves of absence to run for MLA, and is in practical terms a professional NDP candidate. Yiu is running for a fourth time in VancouverFraserview, having been defeated in 2009 by former West Vancouver police chief Kash Heed. That campaign was notorious for anonymous Chinese-language pamphlets claiming the NDP favours legalizing drugs and imposing a “death tax” on inheritance. This latest scandal might produce meaningful reform. But the misuse of public money to further the interests of political parties is deeply entrenched.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Lot sale creates misinformation

It appears that an unfortunate word use has stirred up a whole lot of controversy and raw emotion amongst some of the citizens of Glenmerry. I am referring to the City of Trail notice of “Proposed Park Disposal” in the February 21st and February 26th edition of the Tail Times. Apparently, the words “park land” has left some community members concerned that the City of Trail is selling off some of the beautiful park space that surrounds that community. I can understand the fear that might drive people to canvass neighbourhoods with petitions against the sale of community park land. However, the piece of land that is in question here is

zoned as R1- residential land and is, in fact, an empty lot between two homes. Like every other resident land owner in Glenmerry has done at some point in time, Jake and Dionne Deadmarsh are hoping to purchase a residentially zoned lot in this beautiful community. The land does not require rezoning, the Deadmarsh’s did not receive preferential treatment, and the lot is not being sold for anything less than fair market value; all which have been falsely shared by concerned citizens through the use of flyers and petitions. The City of Trail has tried to correct all of this misinformation through their website, and anyone who wishes to read the facts and make an informed

decision is encouraged to look that up on the City Of Trail website- public notices. The City of Trail has adhered to the policies and procedures in place for this type of sale and the Deadmarsh’s have done nothing more than enquire about purchasing an empty, residential zoned lot. As for me, this misunderstanding has left me saddened for my niece and her husband, who have been made to feel unwelcome and maligned, in their own community simply for enquiring about purchasing a residential lot; as well, it has left me a little bit wiser when it comes to signing a petition before I have investigated all of the facts. Sandie Simmons-Johnson Fruitvale

balance of power a small nudge. For example, American congressional elections happen every two years, which makes the related national popular vote a useful recurring referendum on political reality. And what does it tell us? In the 15 election cycles over the last three decades of the 20th century, Republicans only outpolled Democrats twice, whereas they’ve done so in four out of seven 21st century votes. But if the Phillips and TeixeiraJudis theses ruled, one would have expected the opposite – Republican dominance in the latter decades of the 20th century followed by Democratic dominance in the 21st. So, clearly, other factors are also in the mix. And the political analyst Sean Trende has identified some of them. One is the fragility of voter coalitions in a diverse country. Trende puts it this way: “Issues that had caused disparate groups to band together tend to fade quickly, while new issues arise that can put these groups at loggerheads.” And then there’s the impact of the unforeseen. Queried as to what it was a prime minister most feared, Harold Macmillan famously – if perhaps apocryphally – replied, “Events, dear boy, events.” There’s wisdom here. Unexpected contingencies, such as a global recession or a major crime wave, can really shake things up. So whatever the merits of The Big Shift, don’t bet the ranch on its prescriptive power. Troy Media columnist Pat Murphy worked in the Canadian financial services industry for over 30 years. Originally from Ireland, he has a degree in history and economics.

STOMPIN’ TOM CONNORS

Singer helped plan his own memorial THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - For roughly two weeks before his death, Stompin’ Tom Connors helped to arrange the public memorial that will be held in his honour on Wednesday. The black-hatted Canadian music icon died of natural causes last week at age 77, and the nature of his illness gave him time to specify his plans for a public celebration. “Oh, nobody knew exactly what he wanted more than he did, and that’s typical Tom, through and through,” spokesperson Brian Edwards said Monday in a telephone interview. “I mean, nobody would expect anything less. Right down to some things that will happen there on Wednesday night, he’s written all over it - there’s no doubt about it.” Edwards, who worked personally with Connors to make the arrangements, said the evening event will be a mix of live music, video clips, family photos and remembrances of Connors delivered by close friends, musical peers and government officials. Edwards confirmed that speakers will include Canadian politician Ken Dryden, former governor general Adrienne Clarkson, former EMI president Deane Cameron and Peterborough Mayor Daryl Bennett, while the evening will also include performances from former Rheostatics frontman Dave Bidini, folk singer/songwriter Sylvia Tyson and Juno nominee J.P. Cormier. “It’s going to be a good mixture (of) everybody that Tom would have wanted on there,” Edwards said. “As a matter of fact, a number of people who are there were by Tom’s request.” A private memorial for Connors will be

held today, Edwards confirmed, but it was important to Connors that a public event follow to give fans and other well-wishers the chance to say goodbye. The event will be held at the Peterborough Memorial Centre, a hockey arena - and thus a fitting venue in a way. Although he added that he and Connors kicked around a number of possible locations, Peterborough, Ont., emerged as the most sensible choice even though Connors lived in Halton Hills, Ont. Peterborough is the place where Connors received his “Stompin’ Tom” moniker way back in 1967 during a gig at the King George Hotel, and it became a favoured locale for the folkcountry original. Fans will be rewarded with rarely gleaned perspectives into Connors. Edwards says he had access to the family vault of previously unseen photos and videos of Connors - images of “The Hockey Song” writer with a moustache during his self-imposed hiatus from music as well as shots of him playing the accordion and fiddle. Edwards says the venue will have a capacity of roughly 3,800 for the event and he’s expecting a packed house. He said the outpouring of tributes from fans was so significant it brought Connors’ website down again and again after his death, and he’s anticipating that thousands will want to say goodbye in person. “What’s amazing is the people ... the fans have come through just strong as ever,” he said. “That’s the whole point of his career and always was, the fanbase. It certainly wasn’t based on the fact that he had too many hit records on the radio. “It was based on the fans, and they’re coming out in droves.”

The Trail Smoke Eaters salute the fans as they closed out their season with a 4-2 win over the Penticton Vees before one of the largest crowds of the season on Sunday at the Cominco Arena.

Smokies end campaign on high note BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

Over 1,600 fans came out to watch the Trail Smoke Eaters finish off the season, and the orange and black didn’t disappoint as they ended the year on a winning note Sunday with a 4-2 victory over the Penticton Vees. Trail won three of four against Penticton to end the season, but the victories weren’t enough to lift them into the playoffs, as the Salmon Arm SilverBacks locked up the fourth and final playoff spot with a 5-4 overtime win against Merritt Centennials Friday, and solidified it with a 5-3 victory over the Prince George Spruce Kings in its last regular season game Saturday. “This group of kids is pretty special,” said an emotional Bill Birks after the game Sunday. “They’re all tight, they all hang together, they’re all friends – they deserve better.” The Smokies played their hearts out down the stretch winning seven of their last 10 games, but back-to-back January losses to the ‘Backs turned out to be the difference. “It’s a hard lesson to learn for these kids, but hopefully next year when they get going right away, they’ll remember how they felt Saturday or Friday night when Salmon Arm won,” said Birks. “When you piss away points during the year its hard to get them back.” The Smokies were much improved from last season, and played hard, entertaining hockey. If not for the odd lapse, the Smokies could have been a very dangerous team in the playoffs, having beat-

en Penticton 4-3 in its season series. The Smokies finished with 25 more points than the previous season, winning 15 more games, scoring 20 more goals, and allowing 66 fewer goals against. Smokies captain Garrett McMullen, a Rochester Institute of Technology commit, noticed the difference not just on the ice, but in the dressing room as well. “(This year) we’ver got that attitude, more of an expect-to-win team,” said McMullen. “Last year was a little different, but this year everyone has that mindset . . . It was a great year, I mean the feeling in the locker room, it doesn’t feel like we’re not making playoffs, it sucks that we aren’t, but it’s not like we didn’t put the effort in. The boys are walking out of here with their heads high and proud to be part of this team.” Trail is losing four quality veteran players in McMullen, Brent Baltus, Tyler Berkholtz, and Brett Hambrook, but should have an impressive core of players returning for the 2013-14 season. “We’ll have a really good core, but those four kids we’re losing are pretty invaluable pieces and hard to replace. . . Off the ice its amazing, they’re not just good on the ice but everywhere we go. I’m excited about the core group coming back, it just sucks that we’re not playing anymore,” said Birks. The team will look to players like Adam Wheeldon, Luke Sandler, Jesse Knowler, Marley Keca, and Scott Davidson to fill the leadership and scoring void left by the outgoing veterans. “We have a great group of guys coming back,” said Keca. “I know everyone

says that every year, but honestly this year we have so many young guys that have so much upside, even young guys that may have been perimeter guys earlier this year stepping in and having a big impact so I’m looking forward to that.” Brent Baltus finished the season with a second allstar team nod, leading the Smokies in scoring and averaging over a point a game with 24 goals and 52 points in 47 games. “It’s been an emotional last couple days, but it’s good to end on a high note and I’m excited for what lies ahead,” said Baltus. The Nanaimo native is heading north next season to play for the NCAA Div. 1 University of Alaska-Anchorage, not far from where his mother grew up in Whitehorse, Yukon. The Smokies will also be on the lookout for a new assistant coach as Brent Heaven is unable to continue due to work commitments. As for Birks’ return as head coach and general manager, a decision will be made by the Smokie executive early this week. As for the game, Castlegar native Jesse Knowler netted the winning goal when he took a nice pass in the slot from Shane Poulsen and beat Vees netminder Nic Renyard five-hole to put the Smokies up 3-0 at 5:45 of the second period. After a scoreless first period, Marley Keca got the Smokies on the board at 4:11 when he fired a shot from centre ice that caromed off the stanchion and bounced past a diving Renyard, as he attempted to get back to the crease. See KECA, Page 12

BY TIMES STAFF Castlegar took a 3-2 series lead over the Beaver Valley Nitehawks as the Rebels skated to a Game 5, 2-1 victory at the Castlegar Rec Complex on Sunday in the best-of-seven Neil Murdoch division final. Braydon Horcoff pumped in the winner at 5:14 of the second period to put the Rebels up 2-0, after Travis Wellman got Castlegar on the board at 7:48 of the first period, converting on a Bryan Lubin pass. Dan Holland would cut the lead to one midway through the third period. Despite late pressure with the goalie pulled, it’s as close as the Hawks would get as Jordan Gluck stopped 31 of 32 shots for the victory. The Nitehawks had tied the series at two games a piece on Friday with a 6-2 drubbing at the Hawks’ Nest. Ryan Edwards and Taylor Stafford paved the way to the win, each scoring twice

and getting an assist for three-point nights. The game was marred by almost 90 minutes in penalties, six game misconducts, and a scary injury to Russell Mortlock late in the game that only fueled the bitter rivalry. Game 6 went Monday night at the Beaver Valley Arena at 7 p.m. but results were unavailable at press time. If the Hawks win, Game 7 will go in Castlegar Wednesday at 7 p.m. KIJHL notes: Greater Trail native Garrett Kucher netted a hat trick in leading the Osoyoos Coyotes to a 4-2 win over the Kelowna Chiefs on Saturday to even the series at 2-2. The Golden Rockets beat Fernie Ghostriders 6-3 to take a 3-1 lead in the Eddie Mountain division series, while North Okanagan Knights took a 3-0 series lead with a pair of 2-1 wins over the Sicamous Eagles for the Doug Birks division title.

BCIHL

Selkirk onto finals

BY TIMES STAFF Selkirk College continued to add to their list of ‘firsts’ accomplished during the 2012/13 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season, as the Saints advanced to the league finals for the first time by beating the University of Victoria by a 4-1 score on Saturday night. The win capped a two-game series sweep of the Vikes at the Castlegar Rec Complex, as Selkirk had taken Game 1 by a 3-0 score a night earlier. With the win, Selkirk will now host Simon Fraser University in a best-of-three series for the BCIHL championship beginning Friday. The Saints came bursting out of the gates in the first period and built a four-goal lead before intermission. See SAINTS, Page 12

Canadian men’s curling championship

Fry, second E.J. Harnden and lead Ryan Harnden will represent Canada at the Ford World Men’s Curling Championship from March 30 to April 7. It’s the first Canadian men’s title for all four curlers. At 27, Jacobs is the youngest skip to win the Brier since Kevin Martin in 1991 at age 24. “I don’t even know how to feel right now,” Jacobs said. “It’s really overwhelming what’s going on.” T h r e e - t i m e Canadian champion Stoughton had the hammer in the first end, but Manitoba started cold. Northern Ontario jumped all over their mistakes with a steal of two points in the first end and another single in the second. Jacobs chipped out

a Stoughton stone with a high-risk, highreward shot in the fourth to score three and lead 6-2. Northern Ontario has the hitting game to defend a lead and did so. “When you get a little bit behind, you’ve got to make some really good shots and it just doesn’t happen, it’s disappointing,” Stoughton said. “I’m disappointed just because the crowd came here to see a great game and we certainly didn’t give them a great game.” The Jacobs team was considered a dark horse contender in this Brier field behind the more established curling heavyweights of Stoughton, defending Canadian and world champion Glenn Howard of Ontario and Alberta’s Martin, a four-time champion.

Saints’ trinity comes up big

FROM PAGE 11 The rally started when Jackson Garrett beat UVic starter Sunny Gill with a wrist shot from the low slot to give Selkirk a 1-0 lead. Team captain Jordan Wood added a pair of power-play goals to triple the lead and Cody Fidgett struck for his second goal of the series with 51 seconds remaining in the frame. That was all the offence the Saints would need as Victoria got on the board on a second period man-advantage but otherwise couldn’t beat Selkirk netminder Alex Sirard. The 21-year old continued his strong play on the heels of a shutout on Friday by turning aside 26 shots and help-

ing his team kill 10 power-play opportunities, including a pair of lengthy two-man advantages. “UVic is a hard-working team that never gave up tonight and made us earn the victory,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “Alex (Sirard) came up with some big saves when he had to and our top offensive guys got the job done.” Wood, Trail native Logan Proulx and Kam Crawford combined for six points on the night, though Proulx’s evening was cut short when he was ejected from the game for a hit from behind late in the first period. Friday’s series-opener is set for a 7:30 p.m. at the Rec Complex, but if the Castlegar Rebels advance, the Saints will play Games 1 and 2 of the league finals at the Nelson Recreation Center.

Underdog takes brier

THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - Brad Jacobs wasn’t born yet when Northern Ontario last won a Canadian men’s curling championship. He arrived a few weeks after Al (The Iceman) Hackner stole a point in an extra end to beat Alberta’s Pat Ryan in 1985. Twenty-eight years later, Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie team conquered a tough field at the 2013 Tim Hortons Brier and defeated Manitoba’s Jeff Stoughton 11-4 in Sunday’s final to win the Canadian title. “It’s been too long since Northern Ontario’s held that Tankard,” Jacobs said, his voice shaking. “To bring this back to Northern Ontario, to Sault Ste. Marie, it means the world to us.” Jacobs, third Ryan

FROM PAGE 11 As rare as those types of goals are, it was the second time in as many weeks that the Vees goalie Renyard was the victim of a lively Cominco Arena bounce. Sandler would make it 2-0 when he took a pass from Riley McDougall, burst down the left wing, flew around the defenceman, and fired a backhand over the glove of Renyard just 50 seconds later. It was the 23rd goal of the year for the Chicago native, who finished second in scoring for the Smokies with 46 points. Following Knowlers goal, the Vees Jarrod Boultbee would make it 3-1, converting a 2-on-1 from Ryan Gropp. Keca notched his second of the night, wiring a perfect pass from Riley McDougall top shelf to put the home team up 4-1 with just one second remaining in the middle frame. Keca also received the first star nod for his second and third goals of the season, while Sandler was named second star. Brett Harris scored a late Penticton marker to make it 4-2, as the Smokies closed out their season in front of an appreciative audience. Lyndon Stanwood got the start in net for the Smokies, making 27 saves and getting third-star honours in the win, while Trail fired 47 shots at the Vees net. Penticton meanwhile will play Salmon Arm in the first round of the playoffs Friday while Merritt Centennials play West Kelowna Warriors in the best of seven series.

Ask husband to not ‘poke’ ex-girlfriend Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

birthday came, I wished her a “happy birthday.” Our birthdays are in the same month. She ignored mine. Last week, I taught Clark how to delete a poke, and he did. But this week, they are doing it again. Since he was the one who did the delete, he must have been the one to start back up. When I asked him, his response was that nothing is going on and Facebook chatting and poking is no big deal. Clark has even commented that he would like to meet Toni, with me, just to see what she looks like now. Toni is not the only female who regularly pokes Clark on

our child, but not if he can’t help support the baby. Am I being too harsh? -- Hard Worker Dear Hard: Yes. A parent’s importance should not be based on his income. “Support” is more than money. It can include taking care of the child and being emotionally supportive of the mother. Unless the father is a drug addict, alcoholic or abuser, your child’s relationship with him is necessary and beneficial. But the father should be actively looking for work so he can pay child support, and you should hold him responsible for it. In the meantime, please don’t deny either of them the positive aspects of this relationship. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Walk a Mile in My Shoes,” who complained about out-of-state relatives who try to take over caregiving duties. Here’s our family wisdom when visiting or offering to help a

primary caregiver: Think of yourself as the “assistant caregiver,” and simply ask the primary caregiver what, when, where and how. Do your best to do what they would do. Don’t make suggestions or change routines. Just give them

the peace of mind of knowing that they can leave for a while and everything will be done exactly as they would have done it. This attitude is helpful and comforting to the primary caregiver, who certainly doesn’t need any additional stress.

-- Been There, Too Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net

Facebook. I have told him that liking and sharing posts is less personal than pokes, chatting and messages. Now he is talking about creating a Twitter account. Am I overreacting, or should Clark be more considerate of my feelings? -- Torn Dear Torn: This boils down to trust. Something about Toni is ringing a lot of bells in your head, and Clark should respect this by limiting contact. However, he doesn’t seem to have done anything untoward, so he objects to your reaction. Try calmly explaining why Toni bothers you and why it is important that his behavior reassure, rather than alarm, you. He needs to know this is moving into risky territory. Dear Annie: I’m 19 years old and work at least 60 hours a week. I recently found out that I am pregnant. The father does not have a job and lives far away. I want him involved with

Dear Annie: My husband, “Clark,” and I have been married for 47 years. We both have Facebook accounts. A year ago, Clark became friends with “Toni,” an ex-girlfriend from his late-teen years. I am my husband’s third wife. Toni has been married at least twice, maybe three times. I’ve lost track. The problem is, Clark and Toni were chatting and “poking” each other regularly until his sister told him it was not fair to me. Clark claimed that he stopped chatting. However, the poking has continued. A few months ago, I sent Toni a friend request. All of Clark’s friends from his hometown have friended me right off, but Toni didn’t respond. Clark then asked her to do it as a favor to him. She then sent me a friend request, with no mention of being sorry for ignoring my previous one. I agreed so as not to be rude. When Toni’s

YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, March 13, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be very careful today; you may be quick to lose your temper since you feel quite emotional about something. But whatever you do will just be a detour. Cool your jets. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a loosey-goosey day, and you know it is because you feel it. Use this energy for creative, playful fun. Avoid important decisions, especially major expenditures. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’ll enjoy schmoozing with others today, especially female acquaintances. Quite likely, someone has a surprise for you. Be prepared. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Even though you might be caught off guard dealing with authority figures recently, don’t try to patch anything up today. Things are too unpredictable and

loosey-goosey. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Travel plans are full of cancellations, delays and surprises. Just accept this. This same level of uncertainty applies to higher education, publishing, medicine and the law. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Do not agree to important decisions about shared property, insurance matters or inheritances. This is a poor day to sign important documents. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although this is a poor day to do business, it can be a fun day for just goofing around and enjoying the company of others, especially partners and close friends. Take it easy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don’t push yourself with respect to being super-productive at work, because it isn’t going to happen. Too

many loose ends. Just cope as best you can. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a wonderfully creative day! It’s also a fun day for playful activities with children, sports events and the arts. Surprise romance will flourish for some of you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although this is a good day to entertain at home, some surprises might take

place. Small appliances could break down, or minor breakages could occur. Unexpected company might drop by. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Guard against knee-jerk reactions today regarding how you do things and even how you speak. Take an extra moment to give everything a sober second thought. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Avoid major expenditures

today. Only spend money on food. If you have moneymaking ideas, write them down and just think about them -- don’t act. This is a creative day, but not very practical. YOU BORN TODAY You’re a survivor: you have fortitude and resilience. You feel destined for your future, which is why you’re intrigued with predictions. You like philosophy, science and intellectual speculation. You don’t complain. It’s important for you

B.C. Hydro considers dredging Grohman Narrows By Greg Nesteroff Nelson Star

Following the highest water levels on the Kootenay River in nearly 40 years, BC Hydro is beginning field work this week on dredging Grohman Narrows. “There are a number of drivers for the project and a number of benefits if the project went ahead,” said local Hydro spokes-

woman Mary Anne Coules. Grohman Narrows, about three kilometres downstream of Nelson, restricts the river’s flow, which can result in flooding during high inflows into Kootenay Lake. That was the case last year, when snowpack, rainfall and runoff conditions were much greater than normal and the lake

peaked at 1,753.8 feet — its highest level since 1974. It prompted local governments to call on BC Hydro to widen Grohman Narrows to improve flood control. The Narrows was last dredged in the 1930s. “Part of the decision [to investigate dredging] was the feedback from local government and stakeholders,” Coules

The Local Experts™

said. “We did hear them encourage us to look at it.” The field work, expected to cost $70,000, will last about 10 days and consist of riverbed surveys to evaluate sediment and help determine if dredging is feasible. The project’s first phase runs through October, looking at potential costs and benefits. Coules said

based on the results of this year’s work, BC Hydro hopes to determine in early 2014 whether to move to the next phase of investigation. It could take another couple of years before a decision is made on channel improvements. “We’re in very early stages,” Coules said. “We’re looking at whether we can even go ahead.”
