City decides on $78 as 2013 tax hike By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The average Kamloops homeowner will pay about $60 more in property taxes this year. With earlier increases to sewer and garbage fees, the overall price tag for living in Kamloops rises by $78 for owners of an average-assessed home, which is $344,000. In a special budget meeting that ran into overtime on Tuesday morning (March 12), city council approved a 3.55 per cent tax hike for 2013. But, while seven out of nine councillors IN AND OUT: approved the increase, no A $19,000 streetlight is a one at the table seemed go; a $30,000 dog park happy with the outcome. “I’m not happy with remains a dream. it by any means,” said TCC RATES TO RISE?: Mayor Peter Milobar, who called this year’s Coun.Tina Lange thinks the budget the toughest he city is not charging enough has faced in a decade. for memberships. “I’m not happy getting the oil changed in my truck, LOWER OUR TAXES: either, but I get it done.” A group of businesses Council went into Tuesday’s session facing wants the city to drop the a base tax hike of 3.78 industrial-tax rate they pay. per cent, with a list of supplementary items that would have pushed the increase above seven per cent. Councillors rejected requests for dog parks, streetlights, extra cash for sidewalk repairs and a fund for track replacements at the Tournament Capital Centre, and opted to fund the single-largest staff request — $905,000 for renovations at the former John Tod elementary to house the new North Shore Community Centre — through a reserve fund rather than through a tax increase this year. Council also agreed to spend $375,000 per year on repairs to the TCC, including a $340,000 roof replacement for the Canada Games Pool.

TOUCHING THE PAST By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s something oh-so-cool about holding a tiny piece of an egg in your hand and learning it’s probably at least 55-million years old. What’s even cooler? Holding the tiny piece of amber with the even tinier bug encased inside — or touching the fossilized squid pieces. Maybe it’s seeing an almost perfect fossil of a fish that swam about 50-million years ago. If the whoas!, oohs!, ahhhs! and wows! were any indication, the coolest part of all was the visit to the Grade 1/2 class by Don Bouffard.

The retired geologist was at Beattie School of the Arts recently, regaling the students in Tammy Kawa’s class with stories about dinosaurs as he passed around parts of the collection he readily admits is “pretty big.” His presentation was part of Science World British Columbia’s Scientists and Innovators in the Schools program that takes real-world scientists into classrooms to share their experiences and help bring science alive for the students. Bouffard is also a volunteer with the Kamloops Exploration Group and has done many presentations at the Big Little Science Centre. X See ARE THEY COOL? A13

This fire truck is part of new equipment at the Kamloops Airport as the federal government has given $544,310 to pay for new firefighting and runway-maintenance equipment bought in the past two years. Dave Eagles/KTW

Airport to get added customs service Federal government also gives a half-million dollars to house firefighting equipment By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

After-hours customs service is expected to soon return to Kamloops Airport. Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod said the decision is waiting on “crossing some t’s and dotting some i’s.” The airport has had customs services from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays only. McLeod noted with increased traffic through Fulton Field, particularly private planes heading to the airport after hours, she’s had many complaints about the lack of

customs services, requiring planes to stop at Kelowna, Vancouver or Prince George to clear customs before heading to Kamloops. Users will pay a surcharge, McLeod said. McLeod’s announcement came as part of a press conference at the airport on Wednesday, March 13, to announce $544,310 from the federal government to pay for construction of a shelter for new firefighting and runway-maintenance equipment bought in the past two years. McLeod noted the airport received $905,000 in 2011 to buy the massive firefighting truck parked just past her as she spoke to the media and assembled

politicians, and an additional $146,000 last year to buy additional equipment for de-icing and plowing the runways. Kamloops Airport managing director Fred Legace said the announcement ensures “completion of the project to bring firefighting to Kamloops Airport.” Harry Noel, one of the firefighters who will use the equipment, said the foam-spraying truck is something he hopes he never has to actually activate. “You pray to God you never have to use it,” he said. “But, if you do, it’s not about putting out the fire on a plane, but laying down a foam blanket to make sure the passengers get off safely.”

LOCAL NEWS Bruce Stevens (left) and Jack Jones were among a group of protesters who gathered outside Kamloops City Hall on Tuesday, March 12, to rally against the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine, which, if approved, would begin operation south of Aberdeen. Dave Eagles/KTW

Warning on Ajax from Salt Lake City By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

An anti-pollution advocate living near one of the world’s largest open-pit copper mines told Kamloops council this week she is “shocked� KGHM Ajax would want to build a similar mine so close to Kamloops’ city limits. “The project should have been shelved there,� said Cherise Udell, president of Utah Moms for Clean Air. “The risks associated with mining are just way too high to impose on a community of people.� Backed by about 60 people singing and carrying signs with anti-Ajax slogans, Udell was at city hall on Tuesday, March 12 to speak about her fight against air pollution in Salt Lake City. The area has some of the worst air pollution in the United States, she said, and went through a month of “red-air days� in January of this year. “There were times when we actually had the worst air in the world, up there with Beijing, China,� Udell said, adding schools now keep children inside during recess on bad-air days and some in the city will stay home from work when the pollution is at its worst. “Our community’s feeling somewhat terrorized. Moms are having to choose — do I let my kids go outside and play in this dirty air and get the exercise they need for growing? Or do we keep them safe indoors?� At the levels Salt Lake City expe-

riences, the effects of air pollution are similar to smoking half a pack of cigarettes each day, Udell said. She said the mine, owned by the Rio Tinto group, is one of the major contributors to the problem. Unlike Ajax, the Rio Tinto mine has coal-fired power plants on site, as well as a smelter, and is large enough to be visible from space. Udell said there is no guarantee KGHM won’t wish to expand in the future. “What they’re proposing right now is probably just a small fraction of what they’re expecting to do in your community,� she said. Udell said her advocacy group has been able to work with the Rio Tinto mine, encouraging it to shut down some of its coal power plants and enact an anti-idling policy. However, its negative impacts on the community still outweigh its economic benefits, she said., noting Utah’s reputation for bad air is becoming a problem. “People have turned down great job offers because they’ve heard about how dangerous the air quality is,� she said. Udell was invited to the city by Kamloops Moms for Clean Air, which hosted two information session’s about her group’s fight against air pollution. “I just want to help the moms I’ve connected with here to prevent the kind of pain and suffering we’ve experienced,� Udell told council. “I have no other agenda.�

Access cited in city’s Highland Road plan A Juniper Ridge resident is asking the city to preserve access to a popular walking spot when it widens the access road into the neighbourhood. Tony Brummell told council there are typically several cars parked on the side of Highland Road,

which the city wants to expand to include three lanes and a multi-use pathway. “Those people use that parking to access the benchlands in that area,� Brummell said. “They take their dogs for a walk, they go for a

hike or they go mountain biking.� He asked the city to consider leaving a pullout spot for cars and asked for a public meeting on the expansion in Juniper Ridge. A previous information session was held in Valleyview.

Shining light on mental health in university By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

WOHUNDRED STUDENTS from universities, colleges and other post-secondary institutions — including Thompson Rivers University —will converge on Toronto this weekend to talk about mental health and suicide. Unleash the Noise is an initiative of The Jack Project, created by Eric Windeler after his son, Jack, committed suicide in his first year at Queen’s University in Kingston in 2010. The student mentalhealth summit is designed to bring the 200 participants together to talk about programs that help ease the transition from high school to post-secondary institutions, an experience that can cause stress even in the most-prepared undergraduate, said Christine Adam, TRU’s dean of students. She said the philosophy that guides TRU as it addresses mental health is like a pyramid, with a base that establishes the culture of awareness, respect, civility — “how we treat each other, paying attention to how we treat each other.” Adam said that can involve anything from ensuring the people at help desks are equipped to work with stressedout students — “because they can bring them into a good state or further exacerbate it.” to examining policies and procedures in place to ensure they address issues that can fuel stress and lead to deteriorating mental health. “Last year was a really challenging year for us,” Adam said, with three students or alumni dying in accidents. Doug Sage, executive director of the Kamloops branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association, said TRU is “actually doing a fair built to accommodate students with mental illness. They are part of a network of campuses involved with CMHA

provincially to help promote mental-health awareness and wellness on campus.” The university alumni association also presented its members with a session on how to respond to students with mental illness, Sage said. “If you really think about it, campus is a place where people are separated from family for the first time,” he said. “It is a place where drinking becomes legal. It is a social gathering place of newly freed-up young people and where the party atmosphere is pervasive. “On top of that, the very nature of university studies for most students is a time of prolonged anxiety so, with all of these things happening simultaneously, do we really need to have diagnostic numbers to know mental health is a serious consideration for life

on campus?” Adam agreed, noting many students find themselves having to learn “new ways of coping with the world and being away from home and that can lead to substance abuse, sleep deprivation, bad nutrition. “Some of these students are experiencing symptoms for the first tine.” Adam said the CMHA Healthy Minds Healthy Campuses involvement is part of the next layer in the pyramid, one that includes weekly meetings of the campus case-management group that deals with specifics — students members are concerned about; others they’re aware of who may need help. Support staff are also aware there are times during the year when the stress loads will max out and they prepare for it — particularly exam times.

“There are times when everyone is running with their hair straight back,” Adam said of the team she oversees. “But, we know when these times are coming.” At the top of the pyramid is the people themselves — not just those designated to provide mental-health services, but fellow students who are encouraged to be aware of those around them and take steps to ensure those who need help ask for it. The support staff is diverse to ensure all segments of the student population are cared for and includes one counsellor who works with international students, another who specializes in students involved in the sports program and another whose focus is aboriginal students. There is also a psychologist who is there monthly to handle stu-

dent referrals. Sage said it’s difficult to gauge if mental-health issues are increasing on campus or if society is more aware of it and students are more willing to ask for help. “Here’s the dilemma. Yes, there are more than

before, but are they more in the form of visibility or more because of actual increase in numbers? “My hunch is that it is the first one. “It’s just much easier to disclose it and talk about it,” Sage said. “Having said that,

recent surveys said that nine of 10 high-school students show symptoms of anxiety disorder. “Again, I’m nor sure if that is due to actual increases or students owning up to what is a naturally anxious time in human development.”

T WAS GOOD TO SEE CITY council not pander to the ridiculous nickel-and-dime dance previous councils have done just to shave off a bit of the city’s tax hike. It’s particularly good to see since it means mayor and councillors have realized the only way to actually provide adequate servicing to all of us in Kamloops means accepting that horrible digit — 3. Of course, none of them are delighted that, at 3.55 per cent, it’s one of the largest property-tax hikes faced in recent years but, as Mayor Peter Milobar noted, there are a lot of things that happen in life we may not be happy about, but know must be done. This is one of them. Every year, there’s the ultimate wish list drawn up, all those things it would be wonderful to have, to use city revenues to pay for, to make sure get completed. And, every year, most of them are scrapped for the basics that are needed to keep the city safe, prosperous, growing and with a lifestyle we want to have. One of the cuts made at the session earlier this week was wrong. The RCMP had asked for money for two new positions, one to deal with domestic violence and the other to deal with mental-health calls. Only the domestic-violence request made it through unscathed. Given the number of calls our officers deal with that involve mentalhealth issues, having one person available who would be trained specifically to assist with them should have remained on the “yes”

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL side of the equation. In urging it be removed, Coun. Donovan Cavers complained that to fund the position would mean accepting provincial downloading of services. True. So what? He should have listened longer to Coun. Pat Wallace, who wisely pointed out the city needs both RCMP positions to ensure people are looked after and moved through the system. We expect our councillors to accept realities and not use their budget deliberations as a method of lobbying the provincial and federal governments to do their jobs. Someone has to make sure that, after all the debating, arguing and advocating is over, the work still gets done. There were other equally silly attempts at shaving off a bit more money that, in truth, would mean just pennies saved for homeowners, given the current rate means the average Kamloopsian will be paying just slightly more than $1.14 a week for all the services the city provides for us — except, of course, those extra charges already in place. Coun. Nelly Dever wanted to

scrap the $20,000 for a waterpark in Westsyde, a move Coun. Tina Lange supported. Now that would have really made a big impact on a $144-million budget. It was particularly disappointing to see Lange and Coun. Arjun Singh arguing we should force bureaucrats to “go back to the drawing board,” as Lange said, to try to shave a decimal point or two to change that number 3 to a 2. That’s not giving all of us credit for having very many smarts. We all know that something that costs $2.99 is really everything but $3 in reality — and, heck, with the removal of the penny from our currency system, it really is a round-up to the bigger number in our minds, isn’t it? Coun. Ken Christian was right when he noted that, yes, of course Kamloopsians would like to see the numbers lower, but it simply can’t happen this year with all the buildings — including the Canada Games Pool — that need maintenance and the cost to expand the truly inadequate transit system to something that might just be partially inadequate. Our politicians spend a lot of time telling us how they’re working hard to continue to grow the city’s economy and its reputation as a great place to live — but shortchanging us on the things required to actually back up those assertions is foolish. Besides, next year’s an election year — there will be plenty of time for all that posturing and promising then. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

With the return to a combination of a seven per cent provincial sales tax and five per cent federal goods and services tax April 1, the harmonized sales tax experiment will come to an end in B.C. Taxpayers shouldn’t count on having more money left over at the end of the month, however, as the changes made by the province in the wake of the initial HST — tax credits for lower-income families and seniors among them — will also come to an end. There will nonetheless be good news for consumers in certain sectors. Restaurant patrons will see a reduction on their bills after the PST is reinstated, with the net result being a four to five-per-cent increase in sales (though tax on liquor will rise). Other consumers, such as those planning to purchase a brand new home or buy a new bike, may see large savings in one transaction. The HST was supposed to provide a less-complicated tax regime for the sale of goods and services and eliminate exemptions and hidden taxes created under the PST/GST system. There were still loopholes. For example, a person buying a donut at Tim Hortons would pay tax on their purchase, while the same donut at a grocery store would not be taxed, since it was considered a grocery item. We hope the work the province has done on reforming the PST, since the public voted the HST out with a 55-per-cent majority, makes B.C.’s tax system more streamlined. Regardless, the public can’t expect things to be perfect under a system previously found to be inefficient and unfair, not to mention unwieldy for business. At the very least, we fully expect businesses that complained loudest about the HST to put their money where their mouth is and prove to customers they are saving money under PST/GST.

Let voters decide whether we need a Senate Editor: An open letter to Kamloops-Thompson Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod: I decided to read up on the Senate. That was a waste of my time. I have lots of it. I’m a senior. All I learned is that we have 105 senators — 64 appointed by the Conservatives, 36 left over from the Liberals, one independent and one seat vacant. I still have no idea what senators do, besides reading a lot of reports. Does that really make them useful? Or

maybe they can justify their wages and benefits. I didn’t read anything about their accomplishments. Is that confidential? Every time we elect a new government, the incoming prime minister loads up on the Senate. What does that prove? Please advise Prime Minister Harper that he would get a lot more votes if he either abolished the Senator held a referendum on its existence.

At the next election, let us decide. A far as Sen. Mike Duffy’s apology, it reminds me of my teenagers when they were sorry for something they did. I would say, “You are not sorry you did it. You are sorry you got caught.” Shame on Duffy. This is just the story he would have loved to expose when he was a reporter. How times change. Violet Maartman Kamloops

Pirate parking rates prove punitive persecution Editor: From a taxpayer’s point of view, it seems we are being punitively punished for not blindly accepting the city’s parkade-in-the-park propaganda. Correct me if I am wrong, but I seem to remember the propaganda not long ago coming from this very same corporate person, positive that the parkade was going to pay for itself quickly, with an annual income of $328,236, which would keep up on the $8-million mortgage payments and then some. Indeed, if it weren’t for the counterpetition process, the “person” know as the City of Kamloops would most likely be breaking ground this very day.

AB CARSALES.COM NUMBER #1 IN CREDIT APPROVALS!

One year later, Kamloops has the gall to double parking rates, increase fines and borrow millions, not to build a parkade somewhere else more suitable, but to put in digital parking meters at a time when people can least afford it. Let’s not even consider the fact the old meters have lasted decades with little maintenance issues. In contrast, electronic crap is constantly breaking down, so let’s double projected costs. Instead, focus on the gay foolers who have the audacity to say it is to help attract new business and fill office space.

To a normal individual, it seems psychotic to borrow millions for no increase in parking space, all in hopes of attracting cash-strapped shoppers. The city said it is looking into public-private partnerships for parkades, although in my mind, it missed the boat with the Lansdowne Village shopping mall redesign/butchering and the hotel that removed 300 public-parking stalls from the community and had its own parking-stall requirement waived. All in all, strange behaviour from a “person” who was so gung-ho not long ago to build a parkade their way. Brian Alexander Kamloops

Where to vote? There will soon be an app for that By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

When a recordlow number of British Columbians turned out at the polls in 2009, it was the Vancouver Canucks who took some of the blame — a playoff run happened to fall during the provincial election campaign. Elections BC can’t do much about hockey, but the agency is stepping up its game in an effort to get turnout for the May 14 provincial vote up from 51 per cent. In Kamloops, chief electoral officer Keith Archer spent Wednesday, March 13, speaking with Thompson Rivers University students and the Kamloops

Elections BC chief electoral officer Keith Archer visited Thompson Rivers University on Wednesday, March 13. Dave Eagles/KTW

Immigrant Society as part of a campaign to update the provincial voter rolls. Archer told KTW young people and those who speak English as a second language are less likely to be on the voters’ list, while unregistered voters are less likely to cast a ballot. “If you’re not on the voters’ list, we’re not

going to write to you to tell you where to vote, for example,” Archer said. Beyond the list, there are three factors that tend to influence a person into voting or not. One is attitudinal — an interest in politics or a belief voting makes a difference. That’s one factor better left to the

A11

politicians to influence, Archer said. But, the agency can make polling stations easier to get to and ballots more accessible. It can also try to combat behavioural factors that put people off voting. “About a third of the voters in B.C. in 2009 who didn’t vote, when asked why they didn’t vote, said they were too busy,” Archer said. “I think that’s an important thing for us to take into account.” Elections BC is trying to promote alternatives to voting on May 14, with advance polls, mail-in ballots and voting at an electoral office. Archer said voters who will be outside their home riding on

election day may also be surprised to learn they don’t have to vote at a particular polling station. “Let’s say you live in Merritt and you go to school here at TRU and you decide you’re going to vote on general voting day,” Archer said. “You’re on campus and you think, ‘OK, I’m studying, I’m finishing a paper, I don’t really have time to get back to Merritt.’ But, you can vote anywhere in Kamloops.” To further that message, Elections BC is working on an app that will direct voters to the closest polling station based on their geographic location.

Victoria, why won’t you return my calls? The provincial Ministry of Education will be receiving a letter from the KamloopsThompson board of education, asking why it is being ignored. Board of education chairwoman Denise Harper said trustees want to know why, when the ministry sends out press releases related to education in the district, the board administration and trustees aren’t on the list to receive them. “It leaves us with the media calling asking for comment and we don’t know what they are talking about,” Harper

told the board. “The media gets the releases, but we don’t.” It wasn’t always this way. Harper said up until recently, releases always went to the district, “sometimes before the media got them,” but the trend recently has been “not giving any information to the board at all or just putting it on their website and hoping we look there.” Trustee John Harwood suggested Harper remind ministry officials of the protocol signed between it and the province’s school-

SD73 board trustees eight years ago that includes provisions for inclusion on communications.

And another thing, Victoria . . . The provincial government will be getting another letter from the Kamloops-Thompson board of education as well — this one expressing trustees’ concerns over changes being made by Decoda

Literacy Solutions. The organization works with a variety of partners throughout B.C. in promoting literacy and, until recently, funded co-ordinators in rural communities, Trustee Cara McKelvey said. It is now targeting its money at larger urban communities, McKelvey said, and this is hurting students in rural areas. Earlier this month, in response to concerns about the cuts, Decoda CEO Brenda LeClair told the media its funding from the provincial government for literacy programs was cut from

$2.5 million to $1 million last year. The same amount was given to it this year, leaving the non-profit agency to make decisions on how best to spend the money.

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

In fact, he told the children huddled around some of the artifacts he passed around, Science World has estimated he has given presentations to between 50,000 and 60,000 students. As Bouffard started to hand out the tiny egg pieces, he asked some basic questions of the children. “Are they common? No! Are they hard to find? Yes! Are they cool?” Before he could answer his own question, they chimed in with the obvious — “Yes!” With his audience captivated, Bouffard had about an hour of stories about the

remnants. “You are holding history in your hands.” A fossilized piece of a tree, with ribbons of mineral running through it, drew plenty of attention as he pointed out the “hundreds and hun-

dreds and hundreds of tiny quartz crystals in it. Can you see them sparkle?” More agreement — mixed with a lot of wows! — followed as he told them the piece is an estimated 100-million years old. That particular piece became a gift to the school, with Bouffard noting he is a scientist working to be an artist — he is learning to make gemstones — and the students attend an art school studying science.

Royal Inland’s ER akin to medical shell game Doctors say emergency room so crowded an orthopedic clinic is used for examinations dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s not quite the same as a shell game, but the pieces — stretchers with patients on them — are getting moved around almost as much some nights at Royal Inland Hospital. Emergency-room Dr. Anders Ganstal said the ward is so crowded that staff are scrambling for beds and are now using examination areas at the nearby orthopedic clinic in the hospital to hold admitted patients who are waiting to be moved up to wards. Ganstal, one of two Kamloops ER doctors to post videos on a B.C. Medical Association (BCMA) website advocating the public lobby MLAs for health-care improvements, said when he started at RIH seven years ago, the ER was seeing, on average, about 35,000 people a year. Now, the number is closer to 58,000, he said, and the number of doctors has increased from 12 to 15.2 — although one is off on sick leave and has not been replaced. The ward has 12 beds and two trauma

bays to accommodate that amount of traffic, Gansal said. To help with the increased demand for services, the province set aside $5 million late last year to pay for additional doctors at some hospitals; Kamloops was the successful recipient of the money allocated to Interior Health Authority, increasing the doctor complement by 2.5 physicians. Ganstal said he’s confident the ER could handle the increased volume of patients if there were enough beds. However, with beds occupied by patients waiting for transfer to wards, the potential for a major incident exists, Ganstal said. “What if there’s a car accident? We had a bus accident recently we had to deal with,” he said. “And, Kamloops is the third-busiest ER in B.C. and we’ve already got sick people in the hallways.” As it is, admitted patients shuffled into the ortho area must again be moved out by morning, when that

clinic opens for its own doctors and patients. If there are no beds available on the wards, patients end up back in the ER or in hallways, Ganstal said. When patients are moved into ortho, nurses have to be reassigned from other areas to care for them, Ganstal said.

on a workload model to help determine the number of doctors an ER needs in each hospital, based on several parameters, said Dr. Don Haughton of the BCMA. He said the model “captures the tipping point where it is most cost-effective” and is not based on every patient being seen immediately, but rather

by moving through the system in a manner that avoids an “exponential increase in confusion.” While the model was used for some time, the government has withdrawn from it, Haughton said, and is one of the reasons the website was created. The webite can be found at bcemergencycare.com.

COVER PAGE STORY

Budget 2013: Approved, rejected and suggested IN AND OUT Much of council’s deliberation centered around almost $3 million in supplementary budget requests. Here are some of the most notable projects to make the grade — or get the axe. IN: • Streetlight for Finlay Court, $19,000. • River Street odour bed lift, $340,000. • Parkside Lounge maintenance, $25,000. • Westsyde waterpark seed money, $20,000 annually. OUT: • Streetlights for Todd Hill Crescent, $40,000. Juniper Ridge dog park, $30,000. • Cowan Street Park

upgrades, $50,000. • Ramp for Heritage House, $40,000. • Repairs to front stairs at City Hall, $60,000. • Replacement of cracked sidewalk panels, $100,000. • Reserve funds for TCC, Hillside Stadium track replacements, $400,000. TCC FEES TOO CHEAP? With more than $2-million in repairs to the Tournament Capital Centre on the books for the next five years, Coun. Tina Lange thinks it’s time the city start looking to fitness buffs for more of the centre’s funding. Council voted to give the TCC a repair budget

of $375,000 each year, in addition to its current $30,000 maintenance budget. This year, that money will go to repairing the Canada Games Pool roof, which is at the end of its 20-year lifespan. In future years, staff says the building will need upgrades to its bleachers ($350,000 in 2016), lighting ($20,000 each year starting in 2014) and heating and ventilation systems ($575,000). Lange said the city should start paying for some of that with TCC user fees, rather than property taxes. “If we look at the cost of a fitness-facility pass, all we cover off in that is what it costs

us to have the equipment in the room and the staff there. We don’t look at the capital cost of the building or putting a new roof on or management staff, even,” she said. Other nearby gyms charge more — $55 a month compared to about $45 for an adult on a 12-month plan at the TCC — and Lange thinks the city should fall in line. “We’re offering the finest fitness facility in the city at a price below what the market would bear,” she said. “I think it’s only fair to our competitors, whether that be the Y or Gold’s or Ladies Only, to put a premium on memberships there

Budget ratified on April 9 X From A1

A smelly lift station on River Street will also get fixed this year, at a cost of $340,000. Council agreed to fund one new Kamloops RCMP officer, who will deal with domestic-violence files. Mounties had requested two new positions — the other officer would have worked on mentalhealth calls — and council initially agreed to the full request. However, after a round of cutting and an agreement to use the city’s entire $1-million surplus from 2012 to bring down the tax hike left the city with an increase of 3.6 per cent, Coun. Donovan Cavers urged council to fund half the RCMP request, trimming about $55,000 off the budget. Cavers said funding the mentalhealth officer would have been “embracing provincial downloading. “I believe this is the RCMP sort of wading into medical situations, which I don’t think is appropriate,” he said. “I think positions like

this ought to be supported through Interior Health.” Coun. Nelly Dever urged council to drop $20,000 in seed money for a waterpark in Westsyde (full cost $300,000) and to cut the amount of money for repairs at the TCC. Neither suggestion drew more than a few votes. Coun. Tina Lange suggested going back to the base budget — the amount the city projects it will need to keep services at 2012 levels. “Let’s ask staff to go back to the drawing table and find us half a per cent, or 0.6, where they can find some cuts in road sweeping or garbage pickup, or wherever they think they can do it to keep our tax rate under three per cent,” she said. Coun. Arjun Singh agreed, saying he is not comfortable with a rate “that would be one of the highest tax increases we’ve had in the last 10 years. “I need to see a little bit more pushing. If it can’t happen, it can’t happen,” he said. “But, I think we should push a little further.”

Other councillors didn’t see there was room to push. “We’ve got it down to 3.55 per cent. Many of us said we wanted it lower than that. I think the public wants it lower than that. But, the circumstances we’ve been dealt in this particular tax year won’t allow that,” said Coun. Ken Christian, pointing to a high number of repairs to city buildings due in 2013 and the increased costs from 2012’s public-transit expansion. “For us to say at this point in time, ‘Gee, let’s close the Brock Arena’ would be a bad way to go.” Milobar said most of the increase in this year’s base budget is going to costs the city can’t cut — a new RCMP contract, with a $1.9-million increase, and an additional $1.17 million in wages and benefits to city staff. “It’s the built-in, inherent problem we have with this budget,” he said. Only Singh and Dever voted against the 3.55 per cent increase. Council will ratify this year’s tax rate April 9.

because of what we offer.” INDUSTRIAL VOICE Major industrial players in the city are asking for a big discount on property taxes in 2013. In a letter to city council, representatives from Domtar, Lafarge, Tolko and Arclin call Kamloops’ industrial tax rate “inequitable and unfair” and claim it’s hindering development and leading to job losses in the city. The city gets eight per cent of its revenues from industrial taxes, a rate that is fixed from CITY OF KAMLOOPS

year to year. That’s an issue, the letter writers said, because, as the city has grown, heavy industry is “increasingly subsidizing city services,” but isn’t growing itself at nearly the same pace. The four companies are asking the city to cut the tax rate for their class down to $71.87 per $1,000 of assessed value. That’s $5 less than they paid in 2012 and about $10 less than they are scheduled to pay in 2013. City director of finance Sally Edwards

estimated that request would leave an $800,000 to $900,000 gap in the city’s finances — the equivalent of a one per cent property tax hike. Mayor Peter Milobar said the city last looked at its rate classes a few years ago and opted not to make changes. However, he said, Domtar’s plans to lay off 125 workers as it closes down the A line at its Kamloops mill was “a wake-up call” for the city. The city will review the request at its April 9 budget meeting.

Lake says there are ways to reduce ER congestion do that, he said, is through improvements to community-care programs that can help people address health issues either before they require hospitalization or in a manner that avoids hospital stays.

To help relieve the pressure on emergency rooms in the province, it’s important to look outside those wards to the source itself, according to Kamloops-North Thompson Liberal MLA Terry Lake. And, one of the effective ways to

Since SARS outbreak, ER situation ‘worse’ In 2003, a man came into the emergency room at Vancouver General Hospital with breathing problems. He was turning blue. Dr. Lyne Filiatrault saw him and immediately took him into an examination area, got him on oxygen and, having read the notices distributed by the province’s disease-control agency, moved the man into an isolation room. In doing so, Filiatrault dealt with the first patient in British Columbia to have severe acute respiratory syndrome, the illness the public came to know as SARS. Through her quick action, said her husband, Dr. Don Haughton, Filiatrault helped prevent the kind of pandemic that ultimately cost Ontario’s economy $500 million and saw 44 people die from SARS, with thousands more quarantined. In B.C., only five SARS cases were reported — and each patient recovered. Haughton said his wife talked about those days recently as she realized a decade has gone by. “And she said to me that, since 2003, it’s gotten so much worse in the ER that she might not have been able to do that now like she did then. “He would have been in the waiting room, infecting people.”

people with chronic breathing issues and the other providing health services to help seniors who might otherwise require a move to a residentialcare facility. More changes to the community-care programming provided by the government are forthcoming, according to an email from the Ministry of Health.

The other way to relieve the ER pressure is to ensure people have family doctors, Lake said, and he thinks the $132-million expansion of the government’s GPs for Me program — designed to ensure everyone in B.C. has a primary doctor — will have an impact on the number of hospital visits. Other changes to

the health-care system Lake pointed to as improvements include creating a community-dialysis centre, now under construction on Tranquille Road in North Kamloops, using more nurse practitioners during times when doctors might otherwise be used, and having medical students train at Royal

Inland Hospital. Lake said he hopes the training program might see these students, when they graduate, decide to make Kamloops their home and Kamloopsians their patients, adding to the supply of doctors in the city. “The biggest challenge in Kamloops, at least according to what we hear at the

constituency level, is access to primary physicians,” he said. Despite the complaints from ER doctors across the province, who have taken to the Internet to voice their concerns, Lake said he is convinced the province “is doing very well with the amount of money we spend. “Our outcomes are the best in Canada.”

MORTGAGE MATTERS

Court nixes new TIB vote

Planning a Purchase? Know the FIVE C’s of Borrowing Money

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

An application by Tk’emlups Indian Band member and defeated chief candidate Marie Baptiste to have November’s election results ruled void and another election called has been dismissed in Kamloops Law Courts. Judge Chris Cleaveley ruled he was bound by the law to strictly follow the existing regulations used to govern TIB elections. In making the application, Baptiste had argued an error in the election notice sent to off-reserve voters had the wrong date for the election and the wrong address to go to cast votes in person. During the application hearing, lawyer David Paul, representing the TIB, noted existing customs used to run elections for the band include strict timelines on when any appeals can be filed and that Baptiste’s complaint fell outside those parameters. He also told the court Baptiste was the only person to raise an issue about the election that saw her lose her bid for the chief’s position to incumbent Shane Gottfriedson. Cleaveley read his lengthy decision in court on Tuesday, March 12. Among the points he made was the observation the relief being sought by Baptiste “is somewhat confusing and some of it is beyond the scope of this hearing. By this I mean that Ms. Baptiste, in her claim for relief, asks that the election be set aside and that a new election of chief and council be called.” Cleaveley went on to say the law does give him the authority to do that. The judge also referred to existing

MARIE BAPTISTE: Finished behind Shane Gottfriedson in election.

case law in noting his requirement to abide

by the timelines established by the band for elections. “If I had the authority to extend the time frame for the filing of the petition, I would not have exercised my discretion in Ms. Baptiste’s favour,” Cleavely said. “Ms. Baptiste knew on or about Nov. 21, 2012, of the error in the voters’ instruction

sheet. On these facts, the petition could have been filed before Nov. 26, 2012,” which was eight days after the final deadline for any election appeal. Paul said he felt Cleaveley made “a proper, well-reasoned decision that acknowledges the custom of regulations that govern the TIB and that they are all-encompassing.”

Above the law: Stock Market Scheme For the average individual, not much thought is put into the stock markets around the world, though to those of us questioning government; the devil is in the details. Each night we methodically watch local news broadcast stock activity of the day in complete ignorance. Rightfully so, as the stock market [by design] is difficult to understand in its complexity. Investigations reveal new world oligarchy uses our ignorance to their advantage to milk and manipulate society for profit. A stock market is a private run corporation not connected to government in any way. Its soul purpose is to generate profit; indeed its whole existence depends upon profit. It is a scheme in which profit is made on losses just as much as gains in value, it is simply a mater of being keen enough to act in any situation. Devaluation of markets is not an option, evidenced by the people jumping out of windows whenever there is a market crash. Strangely the last decade right up till last year, the Canadian based TSX has been much higher than the American based NYSE with an all time high of just over 15000 in 2008. Over that same time we have also noticed our dollar grow in parity as it once did in the early 70's. Commonsense would dictate that it is because our markets are more stable, and that we as a country have more raw resources that has indeed attracted a huge influx of corporations swarming to Canada setting up business. And right up until last year when the NYSE whizzed right by the TSX, it was a logical conclusion based on self-evidence. Though today I, along with the majority of commoners, struggle to make sense of how a bankrupt country such as the United States could produce NYSE numbers that are at their all time high of just over 14000, while the TSX is struggling at 12750 in a country that insists the recession is over.

Purchasing a home is a major decision; it represents the single largest purchase a family will ever make. So when it comes to qualifying for home financing, what should you know? Here are the 5 C’s important to the bank: Capital – How much do you have to put down for the purchase of your new home? The larger the down payment, the less risk you present to the lender. 5% is the normal down payment required to purchase a home in Canada. However, if your credit is good, there are a few lenders who can gift you the down payment in return for a higher mortgage interest rate. Having no down payment is not always a limitation. Capacity – Is your income sufficient to support the repayment of the requested loan amount? Most lenders will allow about 40% of your income to go towards housing costs and debt. The housing and debt calculation looks like this: monthly debt payments plus housing costs plus heat plus ½ strata fees if applicable must be under 40% of gross income. Be aware: Monthly debt payments includes: car loan, credit card, lease payments, etc. Housing costs include mortgage and taxes for all your properties Heat is usually estimated between $85 to $100 per month Credit – Is the financial institution confident that you will pay them back? Credit is the evaluation of your habits when it comes to borrowing. If you have never taken out a loan or used a credit card, you may be surprised to find out you have no credit rating at all! A credit check reports your credit history and provides a numerical score based on your habits of borrowing and repaying debt (0 to 900, 900 is best). Collateral – Will the real estate purchase offer suitable collateral to the lender? In the event of a default, the lender will sell your collateral to recoup their loan plus foreclosure expenses. So, lenders will do their homework to ensure the property is in good condition with good resale value. They may not always agree with your purchase price. In some cases, lenders will require an appraisal. Character – What kind of impression do you make? Character is your reputation and reliability. The bank may not have had prior dealings with you, so how do they determine your character? The lender will often look at your: •Assets/ Debt/ Net worth – How have you spent your earnings? What do you have to show for it? •Educational background and work experience *People with a transient job history or address history are seen as less reliable than someone who has been in a home or job for 20 years.* For more information about qualifying for a mortgage or if you have questions about your specific situation, please call 250 682 6077 or e-mail steve.bucher@migroup.ca or check out my website at www.mortgagebuilder.ca Today’s Mortgage Matters is brought to you by Steve Bucher.

Lets start by listing indicators; -pension funds equity and peoples life value are determined by stock market performances and interest rates. -governments fiscal balances are also dependant on world stock markets; we saw this with ICBC as rates go up because ICBC oligarchy made bad investment choices in the stock market. -governments borrow from world banks at increased rates instead of from their own banks for little interest. -interest rates are at an all time low, making many investments under perform; for those suckered into investing in corporate schemes, it has meant a nose dive in their annual dividends, leaving many governments and common people short, while rising costs driven by profit exacerbate the situation. -In contrast, banks have enjoyed all time high profits even though interest rates have been kept artificially low to avoid a complete world governing system collapse, leading one to question where all these profits come from, and to just who all this world debt is owed too? -Many of those same banks/investment firms caused the housing collapse in US by manipulating their lending policies for short-term gains creating an unhealthy situation. -2008 collapse lead to many of those same US banks, and many "to big to fail" corporations [including Canadian based] had to be bailed out with trillions of tax payers cash in order to keep the scheme from collapsing completely. - US economy has now tanked to a point that makes the 1930’s depression look like a birthday party. - CrimeMinister Stephan Hitler/Harper” in concert with corporate provincial Oligarchy, has kept CANADA’s head above water by butchering environmental protection policies and liquidating resources at bargain prices to foreign communist investors like it was Black Friday; publicly beating their chests, declaring Canadian economy is not in a recession despite inflation, deficits, record use of food banks and bankruptcies/foreclosures. -LIBOR scandal has revealed that Oligarchy at every level in every country have manipulated the LIBOR rate [pretend interest rate] in order for banks, investment firms, and stock brokers to manipulate world markets for profit and a perception that markets are healthy. --prices of resources is tied to how successful the stock market are. -stock market crash of 1929[Black Tuesday] that put the entire world into depression that lead to WWII, and the death of 50 million commoners; speculators fear this economic situation will lead to WWIII. -Stock Markets are based for the most part in fiction via hedge funds, speculative investments, and constant buying and selling to generate profit. -the system is self governing and its employees are immune via indemnity insurance schemes. -Many banks, including Canadian have been found guilty of money laundering besides the LIBOR scandal; though none of the convicted were imprisoned or suffered any personal persecution. -if you or I perpetrated fraud of any type, we would be rounded up at gun point and thrown in jail. Indicators suggest the whole stock market system is one big criminal gambling scheme as evidenced in this weeks all time high NYSE; immune to a bankrupt government, record unemployment, poverty, bankruptcy, homeless, hunger, sickness, pollution, and unstable weather wreaking havoc indiscriminately…and yet this corporate body “person” is thriving, stronger than ever before…indeed the devil is in the details, fore only the devil himself could profit from so much pain and suffering. Self-evidence; Fore true growth and prosperity only happens in nature when there is an abundance, only then life thrives. Prima facie evidence suggests that government and corporations are acting above the law of nature, and even their own laws do not apply to them or their corporate cronies...they simply resign or pay back the principle as if to say it never happened...legally immune under their code of conduct. An oath that is not an oath, merely a meaningless procedure. Its clear, governments and society have been subrogated by a corporate oligarchy elite that seeks to control every faucet of life and liberty of the entire world, based on a scheme that leads to constant war and suffering in which these N.W.O [new world oligarchy] profit. This is why people are occupying and idling no more; we are the 99% who’s backs carry the 1% schemers; This is your [1%] pubic Notice; we are not going to take it any more…no more war! Sov.

CRASS RESPONSE TO CROSSES Crosses placed on the hillside adjacent to Royal Inland Hospital were found vandalized on Tuesday,March 12.

TRU mourns death of VP Wesley Koczka, associate vice-president international and chief executive officer of global operations for Thompson Rivers University, died last weekend. Koczka was on TRU business in Europe when he died suddenly. “Wes was a visionary,” TRU president Alan Shaver said in a statement. “I had the privilege of working and travelling with him to India, China and Colombia. “He was totally committed to internationalization as a way of bringing the people of the world together. I witnessed his charm and humour as he gently dealt with all around him during our trips together. “I enjoyed seeing him in action — and I learned a lot,” Shaver said. A service is being planned for Friday, March 15, at 11 a.m. on campus, with the location yet to be determined. Koczka, who moved to TRU three years ago after working in the international-education field for the University of Victoria, helped TRU World grow to the point it now brings in more than 1,800 students from 80 countries and has 1,000 students enrolled in programs in various countries. Koczka is survived by his wife and two sons.

are looking forward to seeing you again!

“LeafSource Stopped Pain Within Days!” “It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had finally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away. “She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone - as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.”

Why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70-80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems—often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops through the aging process. With joint inflammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inflammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive antiinflammatory drugs that cause many more problems than they solve. It is safe to take up to six per day with absolutely no side-effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent anti-inflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction of inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily.

This product get results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. But it’s what LeafSource users are saying that truly demonstrates the products effectiveness: I have had cronic pain for over 15 years and have been going to a chiropractor monthly for pain therapy. I started using LeafSource two months ago and I am amazed at the results. I no longer have tendinitis, carple tunnel or irritable bowel. My arthritis is manageable, all my joints are limber and I’m able to exercise again. My energy levels are up, my nails and hair are stronger and my skin is softer. ~ Debbie

I am pretty stunned what this has done for me in 8 days of taking LeafSource. For 18 years I have tried many many products ...most of them expensive. And most did not work at all. I had been on a mission to find a product that is doing exactly what LeafSource is doing.So here I am on day 9 with 90% of my pain gone. ~ N. W. - Toronto

It was here that Sir William Dawson discovered a fossil of the first true reptile, Hylonomus lyelli, the tiny ancestor of all dinosaurs that would rule the Earth 100 million years later and unique to Joggins. At the base of the grey and rusty brown cliffs, we search for fossils and even find a few. Dallying longer is tempting, but we need to find a place for the night. Hence the conversation over our map with the ranger.

Congratulations

The lightkeeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guest house overlooks the ocean. Karoline Cullen photo

from everyone at River City Nissan to

Derek Deneef on achieving top

SALESPERSON of the MONTH for the month of February.

She exclaims, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to go to Cap dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Or! Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the edge of the world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old light keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cottage. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a restaurant. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll phone for you!â&#x20AC;? Her enthusiasm is infectious and, before we know it, we have a reservation, directions and about 45 minutes of driving ahead of us. On the narrow, gravel road leading to the Cap, we hope a moose will not saunter out of the darkening woods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place could be really fun,â&#x20AC;? I muse. Or not. But, it is so late in the day that we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be going anywhere else tonight. We finally come to a small parking lot. The steep, boulderstrewn dirt road winding down the cliffside looks too forbidding for our rental, so we start walking. Rounding a corner, we are relieved to see the red roof and white siding of the light station basking in the last of the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sunshine. Cap Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Or, or Cape of Gold, was named by French explorer Samuel de Champlain in 1607. The golden glimmers he noticed in the basalt cliffs turned out to be from copper instead of

gold, but the name stayed. We enter the lightkeeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen and innkeeper Darcy asks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the Cullens? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get your dinner started.â&#x20AC;? Nice to be expected. Meanwhile, Darcyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom shows us our room and kindly drives us up the hill in her fourwheel drive to get our night things. By the time we have bumped back down the track, our dinner is ready. The room glows golden with the setting sunlight pouring in all the windows. My Caesar salad is crispy and the pasta with scallops is a stellar main. Before indulging in dessert, Darcy sends us outside to indulge in a Cap Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;or ritual â&#x20AC;&#x201D; watching the sunset. Not a speck of civilization is in view from the chair on a windy perch in a cliff side hollow. The air is crisp and clean, with just a tang of salt. Looking one way, the cliffs rise vertically in a grey mass right from the beach and are topped with a ruffled green crown of trees. Looking the other, the light station looks small against the wide waters of the Bay of Fundy. The isolation is delicious.

City of Kamloops

The first navigational aid here was a steam-fog whistle, established in 1874. The present lighthouse, with its fog signal and light tower, was built in 1965. After automation in 1989, the keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dwellings sat empty until they were converted into a tea room and hostel. This is the only lighthouse in Nova Scotia to offer overnight accommodation. The lightkeeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cottage is creaking rather atmospherically with the wind. We meet a German family in the common room. Over cups of tea, we hear about their days spent happily hiking nearby trails. Before bed, we step outside to see the night sky. The light beacon slices through the darkness with a steady rhythm. Luckily, there is no fog to trigger the fog horn. The stars are just starting to stud the soft blue sky and it is silent save for the sound of waves. The ranger was right â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we do feel like we are at the edge of the world.

City of Kamloops

Starting mid-March, weather permitting, City crews will begin spring sweeping of streets in the valley bottom and working into the higher elevations throughout the city. The Spring Sweeping program on average requires 6 to 8 weeks to complete. In an effort to reduce sweeping time and costs, signs will be posted in the areas that are being swept advising the public not to park on the street. Some high density areas will have parking restrictions posted and/or notices delivered in advance of sweeping, for example, downtown east. Residents who wish to sweep the area in front of their property are advised to remove the pile of sand accumulated as these piles can damage a sweeper, and operators are instructed to swerve around such piles. Your cooperation is appreciated. Inquiries can be made by calling 250-828-3461.

FOLEY

BUCK

Dorothy Foley passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 10, 2013 at age 96 years.

December 21, 1933 ~ February 26, 2013

It is with deep sadness and broken hearts that the family of Chick Buck announces the passing of my beloved wife, our mother and grandmother after a courageous battle with cancer. She was predeceased by her parents Clair and Dorothy Baker and brother Charles Baker. Chick was born in Penticton, BC. In 1950 Chick met the love of her life and best friend Ron. They courted for 4 years and then were married April 19, 1954. In 1957 they started a family with a daughter Barbara Jean (David) which gave them 2 grandsons Brent and Mathew Cavanagh. In 1959 followed a son John Harry (Benny) and her son Chris Harrison. Chick and Ron have been members of the Kamloops Vintage Car Club for 38 years, Chick has been a member with the Excelsior Rebekah Lodge #23 for many years being a 3rd generation. Chick has also, for the past 15 years, volunteered for the Interior Savings Centre for Kamloops Blazers hockey games, concerts and events. The family of Chick would like to thank Dr. Chung, and the wonderful staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice House for the care they gave.

DUFF MAN cometh Chris Dufficy, seen here soaring at Grouse Mountain with Vancouver lurking below, is hosting the Duff Invitational Slopestyle at Sun Peaks Resort on Sunday, March 17. All proceeds will be donated to the Kamloops Brain Injury Association, an organization the Kamloops secondary graduate can get behind, given his history with concussions, incurred attempting the tricks that have made him famous in snowboarding circles.

D

UFF IS COMING HOME — AND HE’S DOING SO WITH A PURPOSE. The Duff Invitational Slopestyle — hosted by professional snowboarder Chris Dufficy, a Kamloops product — will be held at Sun Peaks Resort on Sunday, March 17. “It’s basically just a contest I’ve wanted to do for a while, especially in my hometown,” said Dufficy, a 1997 Kamloops secondary graduate who left for Whistler in 1999 to

pursue a snowboarding career. “Sometimes at these contests, people come and they win prizes and money and it’s just about snowboarding. Using my name, hopefully we can make it for a better cause.” All proceeds from the event — which will feature professional and amateur riders competing in the Rockstar Energy Terrain Park — will be donated to the Kamloops Brain Injury Association (KBIA). “It’s something I’m backing 100 per cent because of my background with brain injury,” Dufficy said. “I’ve had a few

[concussions], that’s for sure. I’m very lucky to have come out of my brain injuries unscathed. “Some people come out different people, altogether. “It’s made me an advocate for helmets and safety.” It costs $20 for participants to register for the event, which begins with a Harlem Shake at 11 a.m. and runs through 4 p.m., with the finals starting at 2 p.m. There is no admission fee for spectators. Dufficy is known as one of the most progressive riders in snowboarding history, earning his stripes by attempting daring tricks

and starring in movies like True Life and Return of the Wildcats. Not all of those tricks landed, though, and the River City product has compiled an extensive injury list — broken ribs, a collapsed lung, a broken arm, broken wrists and multiple concussions, to name a few. The daredevil was told to never snowboard again after doctors ruled it was too dangerous, given the beating his brain had taken. After about two-anda-half-years on the shelf, he was cleared by a neurologist to ride again. When Dufficy returned, he wore a helmet, one of the first

pro riders to do so at a time when wearing a lid was looked upon as supremely uncool. “It’s not me going out and telling people to wear helmets. It’s just showing people,” said Dufficy, a former member of the Forum 8, one of the most influential stables in snowboarding folklore. “It’s a lot easier to prove a point by showing people than speaking to them. With kids, I’d like to be the reason why they wear a helmet. “That’s helping the cause.” Dufficy and the rest of the Wildcats crew earned a reputation for partying hard and push-

ing the backcountry limits. “It’s definitely not as much a part of my lifestyle now,” Dufficy, now 33, said of the afterhours exploits. “A lot of my friends are married and have kids. It’s a little different when you go over to your buddy’s house and he’s gotta go change diapers.” But, Dufficy conceded, it’s nice “every once in a while to get together with your friends and have a good time,” and there will be an event pre-party held on Saturday night (March 16) at The Club. The shindig — at which Vancouver rap

artist Kyprios will perform — will double as Dufficy’s stag party. He is getting hitched in the Mayan Riviera in less than a month. Dufficy earned his firefighting certificate in 2010 and he, like many in his new profession, is searching for a job. “It’s a new passion for myself,” said Dufficy, who lives on Vancouver’s North Shore. “I would love to be able to come back home and be a firefighter here and support the Kamloops Fire and Rescue team. “But, I’ll take a job anywhere I can get one.”

Blazers to wrap regular season against Cats

Please donate “To Keep Our Bus In Motion!”

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

There is nothing left to be decided in the standings, but Dave Hunchak says the Kamloops Blazers’ last two games of the WHL regular season are not lacking in importance. “I don’t think they’re tough to get up for,” said Hunchak, the Blazers’ associate coach. “Any time you play, you play to win, and we want to make sure we’re playing well, so we’re ready for playoffs.” Kamloops (45-202-3) will finish third in the Western Conference and meet the sixthplace Victoria Royals in Round 1 of the postseason, with Game 1 of the best-of-seven series slated for March 22 at Interior Savings Centre. The Blazers wrap their regular season this weekend with a pair of tilts against the Prince George Cougars, who will likely miss the playoffs.

BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK Matt Needham of the Kamloops Blazers and Keegan Kanzig of the Victoria Royals will have plenty of time to renew acquaintances in Round 1 of the Western Hockey League playoffs. Until then, Needham will be focused on recovering from an upper-body injury, while his teammates play a home-and-home series with the Prince George Cougars to wrap the regular season. Kamloops is hosting Prince George on Friday, March 15. KTW file photo

Prince George is in the River City on Friday, March 15. Game time at ISC is 7 p.m. The rematch will be played on Saturday, March 16, in the Gateway to the North. Hunchak said there are a few areas of the game in particular where the Blue and Orange need to be better. “I want to make sure that our special teams are on and we’re

checking well,” he said. “The biggest thing is just playing a solid team game five-onfive.” Kamloops will likely be without centre Matt Needham. He is still recovering from an upper-body injury and will likely return for Game 1 against the Royals. The last thing the Blazers need is anyone joining Needham in the infirmary.

“I don’t think we even worry about that,” Hunchak said. “Injuries take place when guys back off a little bit. It’s important that our guys’ intensity is up and they play hard.” Hunchak was asked if the Blazers’ big guns would receive less ice time this weekend. “We’ll play it by ear and see how the games go,” he replied. “That’ll dictate who plays.”

Money for mats The Kamloops Judo Club (KJC) needs the community’s help to raise money for new mats. In order to receive a donation from the Kamloops Sports Legacy Fund, the KJC — a non-profit organization that has existed since 1956 — needs to raise $12,000. “Our two sets of judo mats are 30 and 45 years old, respectively,” a club press release said. “We would be very appreciative if you could help us to achieve our fundraising goal.” Donors can enter the sponsor-a-mat pro-

gram, pay $100 per mat and have their name engraved on a plaque that will hang in the club’s dojo, or give an amount of their choice. Cash and cheques are accepted. For more information, call head instructor Henry Uyeda at 250374-5442 or email him at huyeda@shaw.ca.

The Rockets opened with a 3-2 loss to the Kelowna Snipers on Friday. David Browning and Ryan Larsen scored in support of netminder Kolby Hay, who was between the pipes for the entire weekend. Max Smith was game MVP, Browning earned the hardhat as hardest-working player and Kaden Linquist was given the coach’s game puck. The Rockets then blew past the Kelowna Storm, 5-2, on Saturday morning. Jake Poulsen scored twice, with Smith, Browning and Jarrett Dumais adding singles. Larsen set up three goals. Hay was game MVP, Poulsen earned the game puck and Nate Van Unen was awarded the hardhat. The Rockets couldn’t keep up the pressure, falling 7-3 to the Kelowna Flyers.

D’Sa, guitarist with Billy Talent, has been known to play some tunes with opening act Sum 41 when the two bands have

travelled together in the past. “We’ll see what happens,” he said. “Once we get to know

The guys with Billy Talent — D’Sa, Jonathan Gallant, Aaron Solowoniuk and Ben Kowalewicz — have known each other pretty much since they were all in high school back in the early 1990s. XSee D’SA B5

Devin Cuddy (above) and Whitney Rose will play Bailey’s Pub on Thursday, March 21.

Cuddy, Rose playing free Bailey’s gig He may have grown up listening to Blue Rodeo, but Devin Cuddy’s music has a definite blue tinge. The son of Blue Rodeo front man Jim Cuddy has always had a passion for Dixieland jazz and New Orleans blues and each has left its mark on his debut album, Volume One, which was released last October. Now, he’s on tour to promote it along with Whitney Rose, who credits singers like Patsy Cline, Kitty

wells, Tom T. Hall and George Jones for leaving their influences on the songs she sings. Bazil Donovan, also a member of Blue Rodeo, co-produced her selftitled first album, which was released a month after Cuddy’s. Cuddy also played piano for the album. Their tour brings them to Bailey’s Pub, 1050 Eighth St., on Thursday, March 21 for a free show.

D’Sa calls hard-rock label ‘really funny’ XFrom B1

D’Sa said he met Gallant, Kowalewicz and Solowoniuk when their band, To Each his Own, and one he was in at the time, Dragonflower, performed in a high-school talent show. The two bands played together for a couple of years under the name Pezz, but a lawyer’s letter prompted the change from the well-known candy moniker to Billy Talent. The name comes from a character in Hard Core Logo, a book and pseudo-documentary on the end of punk rock. “I didn’t think it was a great name for a band, anyhow,” D’Sa said of Pezz. Through the years, the band’s musical style has been described as everything from punk to screamo to rap. “And, now, people call us hard rock, which

D’Sa performing at ISC in 2004. KTW file photo

is really funny,” D’Sa said. “I would say we’re a rock band with punk influences.” The band loves to tour, he said, and recently completed a full tour of Europe right through Russia. Their gigs in Germany were particularly delightful, he said, because that’s the country where the band found its first success.

They try to tour Canada at lease once per album release – this tour is to support the recently released Dead Silence. D’Sa’s favourite track on it is the fourth, Running Across the Track, because it reminds him “of the old stuff we did.” The guitarist also writes songs and said he always has his guitar nearby, drawing much

of his inspiration from the band’s times on the road. “Some of the best songs come when I’m not thinking about it, or when I’m driving,” he said. “I think the creative part of my brain is formulating ideas when the rest of it is concentrating on driving.” There have been many highlights in the 13 years Billy talent has been making music, D’Sa said, but one moment stands out — opening for Metallica in Germany. “We all grew up listening to them,” he said, “and there were were opening for them. It was like being a kid again.” Tickets for the Saturday, March 16 concert are available at the ISC box office, 300 Lorne St., or at ticketmaster.ca. Tickets are $27.50, $37.50 and $45, plus taxes and service charges.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPE ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, communication is a big deal for you this week. Every time you open your mouth, you have a grand audience just waiting on what you have to say.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, focus on keeping yourself in great shape. Feeling under the weather can be taxing on the body and the spirit. Eat healthy and get more exercise.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, attempt a more lighthearted approach to a difficult situation. If you don’t let it bother you, there may be an easy solution that comes to mind much faster.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, taking time to notice your feelings can go a long way toward mitigating stress and bringing peace of mind. It also creates other opportunities to relax.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, don’t worry if the spark seems to have sizzled out of your relationship. While there may be a bump in the road, this is by no means the end of the whole thing.

Also anticipate others turning to you for advice because of the vibe you give.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, don’t fret too much over a situation that’s been troubling you. Realizing the situation is a great first step. Now seek the help of others to determine a solution. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 You may notice changes to your home life, Pisces, and it may be causing anxiety. The celestial plane is creating the turmoil.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Don’t expect others to be mind readers,Virgo. If you have something to say, simply say it. It is better than going through the guessing game of your feelings. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, the simple act of expressing yourself will ease any personal issues you are keeping inside. Talking about things can help you feel more secure, as well.

Remove stems from chillies, then tear open and remove seeds. Break or chop into small pieces. Heat oil in a Dutch oven set over medium heat. When hot, add the chillies, garlic, almonds and raisins. Stir slowly and continually until the chilies are pliable and fragrant — about five minutes. Add the tomatoes (with liquid), spices, chocolate and bread. Cook two minutes, until thickened, then stir in two cups water, the sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a simmer, then cover and transfer pot to a 350 F oven and braise for two hours, then for another two hours at 300 F, until very thick. Scrape mixture into a bowl, then spoon half of the mixture into a blender and add two cups of the chicken broth. Blend until very smooth (several minutes). Using a wooden spoon, press through a medium-mesh, back into the Dutch oven. Repeat with remaining mixture. Stir in three cups more cups of chicken broth. Return to oven, without lid, for an hour or longer, until reduced to the consistency of a marinara. Season to taste with salt and sugar.

FAITH

Delighting in Him — the lover of our souls

T

HE MONTH OF THE passion of Lord Jesus, falling in this month, is synonymous with serious introspection and severe soulsearching for many a faithful. The hymn, Nearer My God to Thee, composed long time ago and appropriately rendered in the movie Titanic, has been a favourite staple for many generations of people of faith who aspired for a closer walk with God. It is a bad sign when this ceases to be the soul quest of believers. There is a condition of soul which is not only attainable, but which is set before us in the Scriptures as the only proper condition of believing hearts. It is that of rest in Christ, when we have found him for whom our soul longed and know that in him we have been brought nigh (Eph. 2:13). We, then, have been perfectly reconciled to our offended God by His precious blood and covered by His spotless righteousness. This is one aspect — and how great an aspect those only know

and we lose that who have been blessed peace and joy brought out of their which we felt when weary wanderings we first saw the Lord. and tossings to and Let’s return now fro, in vain search of to our original quesjustification by their tion: How to walk own righteousness. more closely with But it is another God? thing altogether, after NARAYAN MITRA In the first place, having found this it will be necessary to peace, to walk with You Gotta Have define what is meant God closely in daily FAITH by “walking with life.

We thought the gratitude we It is evident that what is meant felt at that moment for the great by the expression in these passages mercies of God we had experienced would be enough to carry us is to lead a life of constant communion with God in which God is onward always in an even course. made our intimate associate and But soon we found out that our friend. “first love” was apt to get chilled None will deny that this is what and the world we thought we had we are called to be in Christ. For renounced forever, was constantly this purpose the son of God was asserting its claim to re-enter our manifested. hearts. For this purpose the Holy Spirit Our communion gets broken,

has been sent. For this purpose the Scriptures have been given. But the practical difficulties we all feel in the way of such a walk are many and great. Let us consider some of these points separately. It may be that our method has been defective. There is but one “way of holiness.” It is that which God has set up from of old. Its boundaries are clearly marked in His Word so that “the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.” But it is just here that we fail, that we are not willing to be as fools, but like to try our own hands upon this work and construct a way for ourselves, of our own wisdom, instead of taking God’s way. Everything, in short, has been provided in Christ through the foreknowledge and the love of our heavenly Father, for us to walk to closely with Him (2 Pet. 1:3). The whole secret of a holy walk is here disclosed. This is God’s method of walking with Him. But God might show us that we have been cherishing some idols in

our hearts. The hymn writer William Cowper recognized this as a most common hindrance to the soul’s communion with God when he wrote: “The dearest idol I have known/Whate’er that idol be/Help me to tear it from heart/And worship only Thee.” It is evident that this must be done if we are to have God as our friend and counsellor (Amos 3:3). The question answers itself — if sin is willingly entertained, God’s company must be given up. He will not dwell in a heart defiled with idolatrous associations where mammon or human praise or sensuality or some earthly love is usurping the place which He is entitled to occupy within us. Again, it may be that God might show us that we have failed through lack of watchfulness. Our method might have been right and our consecration complete and we might even have experienced many happy times of conscious fellowship with God in service and in daily life. narayanmitra@hotmail.com
