BC VOTES 2013
Candidate sixpack ready for election campaign By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The race to form the next B.C. government has begun. Sure, Facebook ads and lawn signs surfaced weeks ago and Kamloopsâ€™ six candidates for provincial office have already knocked on a good number of doors, but the campaign becomes official today (April 16). In Kamloops-North Thompson, incumbent Liberal MLA Terry Lake sees the days leading up to the May 14 election as nothing short of a battle between his Liberals and the NDP. â€œI think itâ€™s about the future of British Columbia in terms of
the economy and in terms of ensuring that families have opportunities for supporting themselves with goodpaying jobs,â€? he said. Where do the B.C. Conservatives fit into that equation? â€œI think itâ€™s clear that in order to maintain a free-enterprise government, itâ€™s important to vote for the party that has the best chance of forming government,â€? Lake said. To him, thatâ€™s his Liberal party. Ed Klop, perhaps not surprisingly, sees it somewhat differently. The Conservative candidate for KamloopsNorth Thompson ran twice for Albertaâ€™s Wild Rose party during his years in that province
and thinks B.C. is due for a new party in the same model. â€œThe Wild Rose made a significant switch in Alberta politics. Theyâ€™re definitely the government in waiting,â€? said Klop, who became the Conservative candidate in Kamloops-North Thompson last week after local riding association president Ed Fehr dropped out due to health issues. â€œI really hope the Conservatives can make that same sort of confidence in the citizens British Columbia,â€? Klop said. NDP candidate Kathy Kendall said one of her goals for the campaign is to get voters engaged in the
political process again â€” especially those who are young or in the lowincome bracket. â€œThey feel powerless and I like to make the connection for them that every individual only gets one vote,â€? she said. â€œSo, you may feel powerless compared to some other person, but they still only get a vote as well.â€? Kendall believes many voters have been turned off by negative campaigning, but said the â€œpositive message of the NDPâ€? may help reengage them. Across the river in Kamloops-South Thompson, Todd Stone agrees with fellow Liberal Lake that the economy is key in this
election, but he doesnâ€™t subscribe to the Liberal versus NDP narrative. â€œThis election is really going to be 85 local elections at the constituency level where, yes, the leader will matter, the platform will matter, the record of the parties will matter, the vision they put forward will matter,â€? he said. â€œBut, more so than ever before, I think the quality of the candidates locally and the extent to which the candidates locally have been engaged in the community and have fought for a number of different things over the years, thatâ€™s going to matter.â€? The local connection is key as well for Kamloops-South
Thompson NDP candidate Tom Friedman, who predicts the election campaign will hinge on door-knocking and talking one-on-one with voters â€” actions that will make up the bulk of his campaign over the next month. â€œI think the election will be won or lost on the trust issue,â€? Friedman said. â€œWho do you trust to manage the finances of the province and who do you trust to be responsive to the needs of all British Columbians?â€? Peter Sharp, the B.C. Conservative candidate in Kamloops-South Thompson, said he will be trying to show voters why they shouldnâ€™t trust either the Liberals or the NDP to run the

2013 B.C. ELECTION PROFILE ELECTION 2013
Peter Sharp on Thursday,April 18
TODAY: TODD STONE, B.C. LIBERAL, KAMLOOPS-SOUTH THOMPSON
Extolling a fresh start By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s clearly not the first time the exchange has taken place. “Vote for Stone,” Todd Stone calls out, flashing a thumbs-up as a man steps out of a delivery van just up the block from Stone’s Seymour Street campaign office. “I already told you what I think of that,” the man replies. “I said Stone, not Liberal,” Stone shoots back, not missing a beat. The man demurs further and Stone offers a line some of his Kamloops critics may recognize as their own with a grin. “I know, I know. Good candidate, wrong party.” But, for Stone, there is no other party. Hasn’t been since he was 16. It was 1988 and the election that year was federal, with a freetrade debate at its centre. Stone was fascinated by the action. Along with a few like-minded friends from Kamloops High School, he started attending political events around the city, giving each of the major parties a shot. “The group that we had the most fun with and we felt the most comfortable with was the
Liberal group,” he recalls. Stone and his friends would go on to form a Young Liberals club at school, signing up about one-third of the student body in the process. Stone was hooked for good. “It was just fun,” he says. “Here I am, 16 years old and going to conventions and meeting all these really cool, fun people.” Among those “cool, fun people” were Gordon Campbell, thenmayor of Vancouver, but with provincial ambitions, and Christy Clark, a young political organizer at Simon Fraser University. Stone would go on to work both their leadership campaigns, spend four years as Campbell’s executive assistant and manage outgoing Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger’s 2001 provincial run. When voters returned the party to power in that election, the Liberals appointed Stone to the Thompson Rivers University board. But while his party roots run deep — any mention of the embattled Clark is met with assurances the premier will surprise voters yet — Stone doesn’t seem to be entirely joking (though he claims otherwise) when he tosses out the
“Stone, not Liberal” message. “I think there’s a tremendous opportunity here in KamloopsSouth Thompson to present ourselves, to present me, as a fresh, local alternative,” he says. “We can provide the people of Kamloops-South Thompson with change without changing government or voting NDP. “I’m a new candidate, I’m part of the renewal that’s taking place in the B.C. Liberal Party.” Stone isn’t the only candidate to paint the battle for KamloopsSouth as one that will be won based on door-knocking and individual connections. He just takes it a step further. “It’s not about party labels,” he says. Instead, he argues, it’s about candidate accomplishments — an argument that, if one accepts it, puts Stone’s small-business pedigree and lengthy board-member resume ahead of those years of party affiliation. It’s an argument that sounds a lot like “Stone, not Liberal.” “It’s more about who would be the strongest voice to stand up and defend and promote the interests of people of Kamloops,” Stone says. “I think I am that strong voice.”
KTW Q&A: The lighter side of Todd Stone, his love of country music and more KTW: Mac or PC? STONE: “Mac. It’s way easier to use.” KTW: What website do you have to visit every day? STONE: “All Things Awesome. Most of the things they list I would agree are awesome, like when you walk into a bakery, that smell.”
KTW: One interesting fact most people wouldn’t know about you: STONE: “I’m a huge country music fan. My wife and I, we’re taking dance lessons right now, which has been a tremendous amount of fun. We’re learning how to dance the country two-step and, last Sunday, we learned how to do the fox trot.”
KTW: If you could have dinner with one politician, living or dead, who would you pick? STONE: “It probably would be Nelson Mandela from an international perspective. I just think what he endured because of what he believed in and the impact he’s had on the world is remarkable.”

KTW: What is the last book you read? STONE: “How the Irish Saved Civilization. During the dark ages, when books were being burned all around Europe, there was a small group of Irish monks who hand-wrote copies of a whole bunch of different books — and they hid them. And, if they hadn’t done that, we would have lost an incredible amount of literature and writing.”
KTW: What’s your favourite movie? STONE: “I’m a big James Bond fan, so you can kind of take your pick. Maybe Goldfinger. But, there also isn’t a political film out there I haven’t watched a few times.”

BC VOTES 2013
Conservatives change candidate The B.C. Conservative Party has been forced to make a candidate change in the Kamloops-North Thompson riding. Riding president Ed Fehr has had to bow out as candidate due to health reasons, with Ed Klop replacing him. Klop, who owns an asphalt-repair company and lives in Sorrento, had sought the Conservative nomination in Shuswap and twice ran for the Wildrose Alliance Party in Alberta.
Independent candidates in race Each of Kamloops’ two ridings have had a fourth candidate enter the race — neither of whom is affiliated with a major political party. In Kamloops-South Thompson, noted freemason Brian Alexander is running as an independent. Alexander is well known for having run for mayor of Kamloops in 2011 and for engaging in lengthy debates with court officials over his identity. In Kamloops-North
Kamloops, John Ford, leader of the unregistered X Party, has entered the race. Ford is from Pritchard and his party’s platform includes a farmersfirst philosophy, in addition to a vow to end the carbon tax and eliminate the Pacific Carbon Trust.

Elections BC now active in Kamloops Elections BC offices in the two Kamloops ridings are now open. The KamloopsNorth Thompson district-electoral office is overseen by district-electoral officer Sharon Lyons. The office is located at 20-789 Fortune Dr., behind the Royal Bank in North Kamloops. Its phone number is 250-554-5905. The KamloopsSouth Thompson district-electoral office is overseen by districtelectoral officer Doug
Gibson. It is located at 102-1967 East TransCanada Hwy. in Valleyview. Its phone number is 250-253-3498. Hours of operation for both offices are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
Leaders set for TV, radio debates B.C. party leaders will take part in at least two debates, one on TV and one on radio, in the run-up to the May 14 provincial election. CKNW radio is hosting a leaders’ debate at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 26. Invited to take part are Liberal Leader Christy Clark, NDP Leader Adrian Dix, Green Leader Jane Sterk and Conservative Leader
John Cummins. A one-hour television debate is set for Monday, April 29, at 7 p.m. on Global TV, also featuring the four major party leaders. Clark is challenging Dix to a one-onone televised debate proposed for May 6. Dix said it would be “disrespectful” to voters and other party leaders to exclude them. In 2011, Clark declined Dix’s challenge for a one-onone debate on the HST.

It’s still easy being Green in B.C.
TOM FLETCHER Our Man in
VICTORIA Greens would extend this steeply increased carbon tax to industries such as natural gas and cement production. Leader Jane Sterk told me she expects cement producers and the like to adapt, rather than shut down as their competitive position erodes. And what about the extra billions in carbon tax revenues? Sterk says most should continue to go to income-tax reductions,
as is now the case, because the purpose is to change consumption patterns, not to increase overall tax revenue. Most, but not all. “We think there is an argument to be made for putting, for a period of time, the increased revenue from the carbon tax into creating the infrastructure that allows people to benefit from a carbon tax,” Sterk said. That means transit and potentially retrofits of homes and other buildings. Tax increase aside, this is essentially the NDP position, too. The Greens emphasize wind and geothermal power. Sterk faces the awkward task of arguing against hydroelectric expansion. A Green government
would cancel the Site C dam project on the Peace River. Sterk says it would only serve as a subsidy to liquefied natural gas exports, which she doesn’t believe materialize as international competitors develop. The Greens’ star candidate, University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver, agrees. Both point to vast reserves of Russian gas that may well get to Asia more quickly and cheaply. Sterk said the 35,000 existing gas wells in northern B.C. “are not going to be shut down.” Actually, in the absence of LNG exports, that is exactly what would happen to many of them. The U.S. has its own shale-gas supplies and
is B.C.’s only current export customer. Converting transport trucks and BC Ferries to LNG fuel isn’t going to maintain the vast industry blooming in northern B.C. The official Green Party position is to place a moratorium on B.C. gas drilling while a comprehensive water use policy is developed. Current innovations, such as reusing municipal wastewater, are ignored. The Green platform also demands disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing, which the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission has already done. If one were to design a self-fulfilling prophecy that B.C.’s LNG project is doomed to fail, the Green party platform would be a
good place to start. Reading through Green Book 2013, I’m left with the impression that much of it remains calculated as a soothing message for urban voters who have been convinced it’s courageous to drive their cars down to an anti-tanker protest. If Weaver, Sterk or any other Greens get elected, it will be surfing a wave of protest votes from people weary of the B.C. Liberals and the NDP. It will not be due to the practicality or even internal consistency of their polices. It’s still pretty easy being Green.

This is the first of a series of policy commentaries on the four main parties contesting the 2013 B.C. election. HE B.C. Green Party has higher than usual hopes for the 2013 election. It was also the first to put out a substantial policy document, albeit one that is still being debated and altered. Green Book 2013 continues the utopian positions that only a party with no chance of forming a government has the luxury to put forward. For example, they would double the area of parks in B.C., but take 100 years to do it. Immediately, they would almost double the carbon tax, taking it from seven to 12 cents on a litre of gasoline.

Devin Coombs’ mom often left town, leaving him and his brother, Harly. She would be gone for week, sometimes for months. But, she was never gone for a year — until now. The boys — Devin is 15 and Harly is 16 — don’t want to believe their mom, Sandra Lynn Wilson, is dead. Kamloops Mounties
do, however, although lead investigator Steve Newport still holds out hope he is not heading a murder probe. He has to, even though every tip, every scarce piece of evidence, every phone call and every rumour has been checked thoroughly since the then-41-year-old woman went missing early on the morning of April 6, 2012. Devin and Harly joined other family members at the Kamloops RCMP Battle Street detachment on Friday,
April 12, for an emotional appeal to the public to help them end the ordeal. The boys’ father, Mark Coombs, sat at the side of the detachment board room during the press conference, his face stonelike as Staff Sgt. Grant Learned reviewed the story that has been the family’s reality. Wilson started out as all young women do, full of dreams and goals and happiness, Learned said, but, through involvement with drugs, “she followed the common path taken by many vulner-

able young women” and ended up addicted and working the streets. Wilson had started to regain some control over her life and had an apartment in the Henry Leland House on St. Paul Street, said Dale Brush of the ASK Wellness Centre, which operates the building. “She had come a long way,” Brush said. “She adored her kids and her family. She would do anything for anyone. If she had a dollar in her pocket and someone asked for it, she’d give it to them.” Some time between 12:40 a.m. and 1 a.m. on that Good Friday morning on April 6, 2012, Wilson left Leland House and headed to the nearby 7-Eleven store, where she was recorded on its surveillance camera. That was the last time she was seen and Friday’s press conference served as a plea for anyone who might have been in the store at that time or driving nearby and who may have seen something — anything — to call police. Newport said police have flushed out all rumours and tips, although, he added, Mounties had not received many tips from the community.” But, even the most apparently inconsequential bit of information X See FAMILY A7

— a car seen in the area, a person walking by — might be that one piece of the unfinished puzzle police have been compiling during the past 12 months, one that Learned said has gone from forensics to psychics in a quest to find Wilson. Devin, the more talkative of the two brothers, said he, Harly and their dad last saw Wilson during Christmas 2011. “And then, she was gone again,” Devin said. He told of a time when he was much younger and in a store on the North Shore to buy a slushie. A woman came over, smiled and asked him if he was Devin Coombs. “I told her I was and was gonna ask her who she was, but then she was gone,” the boy said. “The next day, my dad gave me money for another slushie and I went there and she was there and she told me she was my mom. “And she asked how Harly was and said she wanted to send us some money. “She didn’t, but then she did a month or two later.” Harly agrees with his brother that it’s just as likely his mother is living somewhere else as it is that police are correct in their suspicion of what happened to her. “She wasn’t always there,” Harly said, “but, when she was in our lives, she was really in our lives.” Wilson’s sister, Shannon, acknowledged she also didn’t know her sibling all that well, but this doesn’t change the anguish they all feel. Shannon is one of three sisters. A third sister died at age 18. “She never really got to know her daughters, Sky and Desiree,” Shannon said as her tears fell. “Let us have something so our hearts don’t hurt anymore.” Anyone with information is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.
Critical Illness Insurance... Is it Worth It? A critical illness can happen to anyone and everyone knows someone who has been diagnosed with a critical illness – cancer, heart attack or stroke. We all think that this won’t happen to us! The Canadian Cancer Society will tell you that one in four Canadians are expected to die from cancer and that cancer is the leading cause of premature death in this country. 3,075 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer every week, there are 70,000 heart attacks and between 40,000 to 50,000 strokes annually. These statistics are frightening, as are the costs related to these critical illnesses. In recent years, medical advances have led to increased life expectancy and the ability to recover from various illnesses. Thanks to these advances, you’re much more likely to suffer a critical illness and live, then you are to die suddenly – which means ﬁnancial hardship is likely what will be left behind. So, critical illness insurance – is it worth it? If you ﬁnd yourself diagnosed with any of the 25 critical illnesses covered, critical illness insurance gives you the ability to focus on your recovery by eliminating the ﬁnancial stress that often accompanies many of these illnesses. Your critical illness insurance can be used to pay your mortgage; look after your family or pay for those medical costs incurred that may not be covered by the government or by your employment health beneﬁts. Yes, it is deﬁnitely worth it!

weeks after her body was found — was found iin the south side of the Thompson River near Mission Flats Park on March 23, 2004. No one has been charged in her death. • The badly beaten body of Sherry Lee Hiltz was found in a backyard of a home in the 800-block of Surrey Avenue on April 9, 2005. No one has been charged in her death. Newport said while there are similarities — each had addiction issues and worked the street — no evidence has been found linking their murders.

From Tom Friedman supporters at the Blazers’ game to Pamela Martin hosting a B.C. LIberal infomercial, the election campaign is off to a cheesy start.
For $130K a year, Pamela Martin warns us of the 1990s
DAM SCOTT’S breathtaking Masters victory was a couple of hours old and the clock read 6:57 p.m. Dinner was done and an order left my lips and landed in the ears of my two kids: Quiet! For the next 30 minutes, there shall be silence as I watch the much-anticipated 30-minute infomercial featuring Premier Christy Clark and her B.C. Liberals. It was at the 17-minute mark that my Grade 6 son, having been sitting behind me at the dining-room table as he finished a French homework assignment, crept over and whispered something. I paused the infomercial (sometimes the PVR and its ability to pause live TV just may be the greatest invention of all time) and listened. “If the news is saying the NDP is so evil, how come they are ahead in the poll?” my son asked. He had been doing his homework while the words of Clark, Stockwell Day, Mike de Jong, Todd Stone and Dave Babych (!) drifted into his head. I had to explain I was not watching the news, that this was a 30-minute commercial created by the B.C. Liberals, who are desperate to defeat the B.C. NDP in the May 14 election. Those “regular” people with their fears of another NDP government? Not so regular, I told my son, but rather B.C. Liberal supporters, with those coffee-shot images no more real than a scene in a movie. My son’s take? Pretty darned persuasive if one did not know it was a commercial.
CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom
MUSINGS So, if the target audience was a populace of 11-year-olds who had the right to vote, the B.C. Liberals might be coasting to re-election. As it is, Sunday’s 30-minute commercial was, um, kind of uncomfortable in a cheesy sort of way. It was well done from a production standpoint — no doubt about it. It was a slick package, complete with crisp shots of the premier talking about her views while “regular” people sipped coffee and listened. There were clips of her visit to the Williams Lake Stampede, in what her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, was fond of calling the Heartland. And, yes, between offering her views on the importance of a debtfree province, there were plenty of warnings that an NDP victory on May 14 would land us all in the Back to the Future DeLorean for a ride to the nasty ‘90s, which the various guests on the commercial made sound like Hell personified. The one oddity in the entire 30 minutes was having Pamela Martin host the program. As Clark boasted about smaller government, there was Martin again
and again, her visage serving as a classic example to all viewers of government waste. Martin pulls in $130,000 of your tax dollars to perform something called outreach services for the premier. Or, as she told the Vancouver Sun upon hitting the taxpayer-funded jackpot: “Improve public awareness and engagement and ensure communication is a two-way conversation,” and “help the public’s concerns be translated into action by sharing with the premier the challenge British Columbians face navigating government.” Whew! All that and she hosts an infomercial as well. Tony Parsons only wishes he could be so vital to democracy.
NDP SMELLS OF HAVARTI The B.C. Liberals are not the only ones being too cheesy, as fans attending last week’s Kamloops BlazersKelowna Rockets game can attest. There, in front of Interior Savings Centre, were NDP supporters stumping for Kamloops-South Kamloops candidate Tom Friedman. “Tom Friedman supports the Blazers” read one sign, the inference being the B.C. Liberals don’t? Fans go to such events to escape the real world, not to encounter such crass campaigning. At least Liberal candidate Terry Lake was inside, wearing his Blazers jersey and supporting the team without the need to tell voters about it. firstname.lastname@example.org twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds
One would hope our local Conservative MP, Cathy McLeod, would issue a statement denouncing her party’s pathetic response to the weekend election of Justin Trudeau as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. No sooner had Trudeau won the leadership than the Conservative braintrust had ads out, belittling Trudeau’s experience, decrying his attendance in the House of Commons and using a photo of him at a charity event to attack him. The ads feature a mocking voice making fun of Trudeau’s array of jobs, including that of a drama teacher. In the Conservative mindset, then, teachers are not qualified to be prime minister, a job apparently reserved for policy wonks with economic degrees. The ads use a photo of a shirtless Trudeau in an attempt to further the Conservatives’ argument the Quebec MP is all style and no substance. The fact the photo was taken at a charity event to raise money for and awareness of prostate cancer — the very disease that contributed to the death of Trudeau’s father, Pierre Elliot Trudeau — only adds to the utter tastelessness of such an attack. But, this is par for the course with the Conservatives, who attacked Stéphane Dion as lacking the capacity to be a leader and who attacked Thomas Mulcair when he succeeded Jack Layton as NDP leader. The next federal election is two years from now. Could the Conservatives not have impressed and surprised us all by taking out ads congratulating Trudeau on his triumph and promising a fair, but tough battle? Would such an ad have not created a buzz that would have done wonders for the Conservatives? Instead, they decide to remain nasty and negative. A few years ago, McLeod told KTW she disagreed with a certain negative-ad campaign of her party. It was a refreshing take from a backbench MP, but one that remains rare. Perhaps McLeod will speak her mind and not recite the party line when asked about this latest example of lack of class.

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online
Re: Letter: Let’s not become a mining town: “Just because KGHM Ajax is throwing money into the community does not ensure it will in any way be accountable for the irreparable damage that will be done to this town we call home. “Most people who want this mine here do not even live in Kamloops. I grew up here and do not want to lose it. “I work outside most of the year, I recreate outside and I live outside, except when it is too cold to do so. “This mine, being so close, will limit my fun and enjoyment, let alone the many real athletes who will choose not to train here.” — posted by Nathan Leduc
Re: Rational Thoughts column: Ofﬁce of Religious Freedom will protect one religion: “Plenty of money available for this useless nonsense, but science, education, needed social programs, etc. get nothing. “We need to get rid of Harper and his gang of religious fanatics, ASAP. “Another good column, Bill Ligertwood.” — posted by Guy King
Q&A WE ASKED Will the Kamloops Blazers defeat the Kelowna Rockets in the WHL playoffs?
YES 80% NO 20%
Ajax needs to be approved — and we need the jobs 77 VOTES Editor: I have been sitting back, watching the pages of KTW burn with hate over possibly the second-best thing that could happen to Kamloops — the first being an already-operating mine near Kamloops. I am a tradesman who gets to make a generous living and sleep in my own bed every night. I know many of my fellow tradesmen would love to have another 380 high-paying jobs in our mining town of Kamloops. Yes, I said mining town. Kamloops was funded by mining long before tourism and tournaments. According to the City of Kamloops website, gold attracted settlers to Kamloops in the 1850s. I have read that Kamloops city council exists to speak on behalf of the 86,000 people of Kamloops. If this is the case, should council mem-
bers not be open-minded, rather than opposed to the proposed Ajax mine, as two councillors are? I proudly display an “I Support Ajax” sticker on the back of my truck. Where is the city council member who represents me? There is a greater percentage of Kamloopsians who support Ajax than most people realize. Supporters of Ajax are in favour due to being educated on the facts. Ajax doesn’t need to produce half-hour propaganda movies throwing out scare tactics to get supporters. The Stop Ajax Mine group has done nothing but compare Ajax to the largest mines in North America, stretch facts to scare the public and litter our city with propaganda. How can Kamloops say no to hundreds of direct and indirect high-paying jobs?
Kamloops cannot survive off tourism and tournaments alone. Nobody can live comfortably off the $10 per hour minimum wage that tourism and tournaments provide, nor is everyone in a position that they can turn down these high-paying jobs because they collect a pension check. There are good reasons why the City of Kamloops doesn’t have a say on the approval of Ajax. The provincial and federal government ministers have the resources, education and facts to make such a decision. Those city council members opposed to Ajax are only opposed to play the people of Kamloops and win votes. I have full confidence that both levels of government will make the right decision and approve construction and operation of Ajax. Jason Currie Kamloops
Help Big Little Science Centre ﬁnd permanent home in city Editor: The future of the Big Little Science Centre is unknown. Our lease at the former George Hilliard elementary expires on June 30. We are grateful to School District 73 for providing three sites for the past 13 years. A tentative site for our fourth school is the Twin Rivers Education Centre. However, the science centre needs at least as much space
2013 Tuesday April 23 | 5 pm - 8 pm Courthouse, Kamloops
as we now occupy and a stable lease. The centre has evolved into a very complex institution, serving thousands of students and visitors. It is not a simple matter to pack up eight rooms filled with scientific and office equipment and move every few years. We are a non-profit society and we rely on generous support from various sources, including School District 73. It might help our cause if our
customers — teachers, parents, students and former students — provided written commentary regarding the value of the centre. The science centre is truly an investment in young people. The centre future will be decided on by school trustees. Some trustees know what we do for school-district kids and teachers, but some may have never visited the centre when student activity is ongoing.
Therefore, they may not fully appreciate the value of what we do. Please consider writing the board of school trustees with your personal letter of support. If the Centre is to survive in Kamloops, we need guaranteed and unfettered support from everyone. Gordon R. Gore founder BIG Little Science Centre Kamloops

Kamloops students off to nation’s capital Pair representing local branch of Big Brothers-Big Sisters in Ottawa email@example.com
Ashlee Speers is looking forward to everything she’ll experience this week as one of two teens at the Big Brothers Big Sisters MasterCard Social Innovators Youth Summit in Ottawa. But, for Brandon Hayashi, who left with Speers for the four-day event last weekend, there’s one highlight he’s looking forward to — hearing Olympic athlete Donovan Bailey talk. The pair, both students at South Kamloops secondary, are representing the Kamloops branch of Big Brothers-Big Sisters and agreed they’re excited to be heading to Ottawa — they’ve never been there before — to learn about leadership, community service and giving back to the community. Bailey is one of three keynote speakers; 2012 Miss America Laura Kaeppeler will speak on how to men-
tor teens whose parents are in jail or prison and Canadian sprinter Tania Archer will talk about paying it forward every day. Delegates are between the ages of 15 and 19 and were chosen based on their prior commitment to community involvement. Each will be given $100 as seed money to take home and use for a community project. Brandon said he’s thinking about something to help the Kamloops Food Bank while Ashlee is considering projects to help the Kamloops branch of the SPCA or organizations that work with special-needs youth. The conference started on Monday, April 15 and wraps up on Thursday, April 18. On Wednesday, April 17, all attending will be at Rideau Hall for a reception hosted by Governor General David Johnston, when Canada Post will unveil a commemorative stamp marking the centenary of Big Brothers-Big Sisters in Canada.

RIH expansion one step closer 60K pounds of food An expansion at the Royal Inland Hospital is another step closer to construction. The province announced Monday, April 15, that it has approved a business case for a new clinical services building and parkade at RIH. With the business case approved, the project can now
go to tender. The new $80-million building will include 350 new stalls of parking, teaching space, and space for outpatient programs including pre-surgical screening and IV therapy. Construction is slated to begin in the spring of 2014.
Once all the yellow bags are unpacked — they’re still coming in — it’s likely the Kamloops Food Bank will reach or surpass 60,000 pounds of food from the spring installment of its twicea-year citywide collection. As of Saturday, April 13, 56,000 pounds had already been counted. The food bank puts out more than one million pounds of food every year.

Books do Battle in Kamloops schools By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Marty and Remi are close school friends convinced they are aliens and out to prove it by finding a spaceship. The pair — one Chinese and the other French-Canadian — are the protagonists in The Mystery of the Frozen Brains by Marty Chan. Seems like a natural book to appeal to young readers. And, it has the added benefit — from the viewpoint of the people behind the Battle of the Books — of being Canadian. It’s not easy to find Canadian books that meet the criteria to be involved in the annual event, although the goal is to try to have 50 per cent Canadian content. But, the overriding goal, said Faith Bailey, who brought the program to Kamloops schools a quarter-century ago, is to find books that kids want to read. And, of course, to create a love of reading. Bailey, a retired teacherlibrarian who has continued
David Thompson elementary students Molly Foxall (left) and Cali McKinlay compete in the 2011 Battle of the Books. This year’s district-level event is slated for tomorrow (April 17). KTW file photo
her involvement with the program, said at its essence, the Battle is a reading motivation program. Books are chosen for three categories of classes — grades three and four, Grade 5 and grades six and seven. Students who sign up will read from a list of books chosen every May by teacherlibrarians in the district. Then they will discuss them and quiz each other to make sure their team knows the plotline and can handle the questions they will be asked in competition. Twenty-six schools took
part in the zone-level round of the Battle last week, and 24 teams (three each from eight schools) will be at David Thompson elementary on Wednesday, April 17, for the district finals. Bailey first heard of the Alaskan Reading Motivation Program in the spring of 1987 and brought the idea to Kamloops that year. The first battle was on April 13, 1988, at Parkcrest elementary, where 18 local schools took part. Criteria for choosing books includes ensuring they will interest both boys and girls
and come from a variety of genres. There’s also a concerted effort to choose some books students might otherwise never pick up, Bailey said. This year’s list, for example, included Beezus and Ramona, Dragon in the Sock Drawer, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, The Wizard of Oz, The Hobbit and Phoenix Rising, among others, each grouped for the appropriate grade category. Readers can access practice questions to prepare to do battle at the zone level. Successful school teams each receive participation ribbons and the top two in each category are awarded medallions. At the district level, the top team in each level gets a keeper trophy and gift certificates from Bookland, and their school gets a large trophy to display for a year. And, because this is the 25th annual event, all district participants will receive a free book from a collection Bailey’s been saving up to help recognize the anniversary.

Cardinal ﬂew with Raiders
By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
Lacrosse season is here and the senior Kamloops Rattlers were in action on the weekend. Kyle MacLennan of the Kelowna Raiders was able to beat Rattlers’ goaltender Mike Smith on this breakaway, but the Snakes downed the visitors from the Little Apple 14-7 at Memorial Arena on Friday, April 12. Turn to page A14 for more on that game and information on the junior B Venom, along with the novice and peewee Rattlers. Allen Douglas/KTW
HAT COP from Corner Gas used to play for the Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders. “I moved here and I said all I need to find a community is to find a rugby club and I found everybody I needed there,” said Lorne Cardinal, who played Sgt. Davis Quinton on the Canadian comedy series, which ran for six seasons on CTV. Cardinal mentioned his exploits with KRC during a speech at the Thompson Rivers University Alumni and Friends Distinguished Alumni Awards banquet, held on Friday, April 12, in the school’s Grand Hall. He told the crowd about moving to Kamloops in the 1980s to take a job planting trees during one of B.C.’s worst periods of unemployment in recent history. The accomplished actor — who played many positions with the Raiders, but preferred blindside flanker — found his calling in the River City. He came across a Cariboo College pamphlet, which listed the courses offered at the institution known today as TRU.
Lorne Cardinal, known best for his role on Corner Gas, used to scrum with the Kamloops Raiders. Shimon photo
Cardinal, then in his early 20s, enrolled in a spattering of what he called “easy-threecredit” courses, one of which was an introduction to acting class. He performed in front of a live audience in a one-act play at semester’s end and, after experiencing the thrill of taking a bow in front of more than 100 appreciative onlookers, Cardinal knew he was meant to be an actor. The Corner Gas cop was no slouch on the rugby pitch, playing for the Fraser Valley’s under-23 squad during his short-lived stint in Kamloops.
He left the Tournament Capital in 1989 for the University of Alberta, where he became one of the first aboriginal students at that school to obtain a bachelor of fine arts degree. Cardinal’s fondest memories of KRC, as is the case for many of the club’s alumni, were formed away from the field. “The clubhouse was always great,” he said. “It was behind Axel’s garage in the back. “All the guys were fantastic. The whole team. The whole organization was tight-knit.”

Venom set to defend provincial crown The Kamloops Venom begin their quest for a second straight junior B provincial championship on the weekend. Kamloops opens the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League regular season against Armstrong on Saturday, April 20, at Memorial Arena. That tilt gets underway at 7:30 p.m. Unfortunately for the Snakes, they posted an 0-2 record at the annual TOJLL Ice Breaker in Armstrong. In Game 1 of the pre-season tournament, Kelowna downed Kamloops 8-3. The Rattlers, in their second game, fell 11-7 to Vernon. Scoring on the weekend for Kamloops were Kyle Gunn, Riley Polacik (3), Ryan Emery, Rob Peterson (2), Trent Mounder, Blair Hardman and Blaine Boomer. Marc Dumont and Matt Hans, who pitched in with two assists, split goaltending duties. Armstrong, Kelowna, South Okanagan (Penticton), Vernon and Kamloops are the league’s member teams. Gord Hardman is the Venom’s head coach. Shawn Donahue, Riley Donahue and Brandon

Times, do they really have to keep a changin’? Bob Dieno hopes to make the most of his time at the helm of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Bob Dieno, owner of Nu-Tech Fire and Safety and the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 president, wants to see the B.C. Chamber of Commerce lobby Victoria to abolish daylight saving time. Dave Eagles/KTW
OR MOST OF HIS LIFE, BOB Dieno figured daylight saving time was a global standard, put in place to help farmers make the most of their work days. Then, the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce president for 2013 — and the organization’s resident policy wonk — got researching. “Did you know only 76 countries have daylight saving time?” Dieno, who is also owner of Nu-Tech Fire and Safety, told KTW. “Less than half the world changes time.” He can’t blame farmers for the time change, either. Turns out many countries with daylight savings time signed on during the First World War, when it was seen as a way to conserve fuel. “The farmers hate it because the animals don’t like changing time,” he said. And, Dieno pointed to recent studies that connect time-shift to a rise in heart attacks and absenteeism at work — showing the human body doesn’t much like springing forward and falling back, either. “That’s what you find out when you dig into this stuff,” Dieno said. “I just started looking because I hate the time change.” Out of his research came one of the Kamloops’ Chamber of Commerce’s latest resolutions, which is headed to the B.C. Chamber of Commerce for debate. Should it be adopted, the provincial chamber will lobby the government to adopt yearround, permanent daylight saving time. Policy has been Dieno’s forte since he got involved with the chamber in 2008 — and it’s also one of the specialties of the organization he’ll head this year. Resolutions drafted by the local chamber have led to an express passport-renewal program and mobile-business licensing in some parts of B.C. that allows businesses to operate in several communities under one licence. Another resolution, drafted at the suggestion of Western Canada Theatre, urges the government to dole out arts grants in threeyear cycles to give organizations more stability and cut down the amount of money they have to spend on applying for funding. It’s also up for review by the B.C. chamber. “I love politics, that’s it.” Dieno said of policy-writing’s appeal. During his stint as president, he’s hoping to get the chamber’s membership more actively involved in the organizations, whether by attending socials to pointing out changes they’d like the government to make that could become new research projects. “We want to see more involvement in everything,” he said. “We really just want to make the members aware of what’s out there.”

Randy Bachman has received plenty of play in the Tournament Capital recently thanks to the red-hot Kamloops Blazers use of Takin’ Care of Business as their goal song. The Winnipeg-born rocker’s sounds will fill the air at Sagebrush Theatre, not Interior Savings Centre, during a concert on Saturday, April 20.
Bachman bringing legendary rock to Sagebrush By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Randy Bachman has performed around the world — but the best venue he’s ever had for a gig is right here in B.C., the rock veteran said. “The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver,” he told KTW. “Many bands say it’s the best room, sound stage, venue in the world.” On Saturday, April 20, Bachman will be on the stage of Sagebrush Theatre and, while it may not be the best he’s played, it’s the best one for Kamloopsians who want to see and hear the man behind so many Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive hits. It’s a solo performance that will be more than just music as the Winnipeg native tells some of the stories behind the songs many sang along with as they played their air guitars. Hence the name he’s chosen for this trip out on the road — Vinyl Tap Tour: Every Song Tells a Story. (Vinyl Tap is the name of the CBC music show Bachman hosts). While his own writing is iconic, Bachman has his own list of favourite songwriters. When asked to name five, he came up
with seven, although he paired off six of them — John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Don Henley and Glen Frey and, all on his own, Brian Wilson. However, given the choice to share the stage — probably the Commodore — with any performer, Bachman said his choice would have to be Eric Clapton. Favourite gig ever? That would be playing with the Guess Who
at the SARS Festival in Toronto in 2003 and listening to the crowd of 500,000 singing along with Taking Care of Business. “It was amazing,” Bachman said. The 69-year-old made his first mark on the music industry when he was just three and won a singing contest. Two years later, he started studying violin. At age 16, he tried to get into a Les Paul concert at a club in Winnipeg but his age nixed that goal — so he
helped Paul set up for the show and load up afterward, asking only for Paul to teach him a lick. Instead, the man for whom a classic series of guitars — including Bachman’s favourite, a 1959 Gibson Les Paul Burst RI — bears his name taught him to play How High the Moon. His one-man show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are still available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-3745483, kamloopslive.ca.

CFJC honoured by ALS Society of BC Kamloops TV station CFJC has been recognized by the ALS Society of BC for a 30-minute story about the disease produced last year.

Ford’s Fusion hybrid scores well on many fronts STORY/B6
B uckle up with B rittany
Last week I got to test drive the new 2013 NISSAN PATHFINDER. I’m a big fan of the new Pathﬁnder design - it’s much smoother-looking, and it has TONS of room! The 2nd & 3rd row seats recline individually, even with my son’s car seat strapped in, and the 2nd row seats can be slid back & forth on their own as well. Also, the proximity key and the push-button power liftgate trunk were really convenient when my hands were full!
Thank you River City Nissan!

mentally and even add a little more luggage room, although there are still compromises made for the sake of battery storage — 340 litres (12 cubic feet) of trunk space instead of 453 litres (16 cubic feet), a tire mobility kit instead of a spare tire, and a smaller 51 litre fuel tank (instead of 63 litres). The 2013 Fusion Hybrid features an all-new 2.0litre Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine, significantly downsized from the previous 2.5-liter unit, while maintaining roughly the same performance standards. The gasoline engine makes 149 horse power and 129 pound-feet of torque, and it combines with a permanent-magnet, AC-synchronous electric motor to churn out a net horse-power rating of 188 — marginally less than the previous model’s 191 net. But, the new 2013 Fusion Hybrid has also trimmed the fat by more than 100 pounds of weight — depending on trim and option levels — thanks to some of the aforementioned changes and an allnew lithium-ion battery pack that saves weight. The new batteries also generate more power than previous nickel-metal hydride batteries and help raise the electric-only maximum speed from 75 km/h to 100 km/h — opening up the potential for EV highway cruising. Manufacturers build hybrids for fuel economy bragging rights and Ford wasted little time in claiming the midsize fuel efficiency crown, boasting that the Fusion Hybrid would outperform midsize rivals like the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

NEW 2013 MAZDA 3 Kamloops
HE FORD FUSION HAS COME A LONG WAY IN A VERY SHORT 10 YEARS. It was born in the guise of a 427 Concept that was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in 2003. That concept just happened to look a heck of a lot like a certain critically acclaimed Cadillac CTS model, a car that had debuted just the year before. Or, at least, that was my immediate reaction at the unveiling, which got me an over-the-shoulder scowl from Ford’s design chief, J Mays. Well, maybe he got the point because an evolution of that initial design dropped the vertical headlights but stayed with the three-bar grille — a look that resonated with customers and soon spread to other vehicles in the Ford lineup. And, the Fusion became a best-seller — a bread-and-butter, five-passenger, mid-size mainstay that helped see Ford through the tougher years of automotive-industry troubles. Since then, the car has been revised and refreshed and the 2013 Fusion lineup adopts a new exterior style featuring a gape-mouth grille, probably adapted (in my opinion, again) from Mitsubishi’s Sabre Jet-inspired EVO design — a look that virtually every company seems to be copying these days. And, hmm, there might be just a dash of AstonMartin design DNA thrown into the mix, as well. But, while we might argue about styling inspirations, the net result is a sleek and seductive silhouette, an aggressive stance, nice lines and a handsome design that looks good from any angle. Look up the word “fusion” and you will find definitions that list “blending” and “combining” — apt descriptions for a lineup that offers a multitude of choices with naturally-aspirated and turbocharged engines, hybrid and plug-in-hybrid powertrain options, manual or automatic transmission choices, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configurations and a wealth on new technologies that include Ford SYNC communications, optional auto start stop, a lane-keeping system, adaptive cruise control, active-park assist and Ford’s Blind Spot Information System, to name just a few. We’re concentrating on the Fusion Hybrid in this review and the good news here is that this high-tech offering maintains the same sporty style and sophistication as its non-hybrid model-mates, while expanding on an award-winning theme with new innovations and technologies. Like all Fusions, the new Hybrid is a little bigger than its predecessor. The wheelbase has been stretched by nearly five inches and the car is almost an inch-and-a-half longer, 3.4 inches wider and 2.3 inches taller. These dimensions bump up interior room incre-

Fusion hybrid features airy, larger interior XFrom B7
Transport Canada has rated the Fusion Hybrid at an optimistic 4.0/4.1L/100km (city/highway). The EPA in the U.S., using a somewhat more involved testing method, returned a more practical 5.0/5.0L/100km (city/hwy) rating, but even those more realistic numbers have come under fire from Consumer Reports and other testers who have been unable to achieve the same results. My test methods are quite simple. When I picked up the car, the trip computer gave me a 7.2L/100km average for the 1,600 kilometres driven by the previous driver. I hoped to do better than that. Topping off the tank before driving 445 kilometres — a roughly even split of highway and city driving — I refuelled with 30.2 litres of gas for a 6.8L/100km combined average. We can pooh-pooh those results compared to the official rating but, based on my experience with other hybrids, that’s still a respectable result and, by driving moderately and following the onscreen brake coach guidance to maximize regenerative braking, I did manage to earn 180 kilometres of electric-only driving out of that sum total. What’s equally important here is that the Fusion is a pleasure to drive — perky when needed, accelerating with a smooth linear progression of power, complemented by an able electronicCVT transmission and a seamless interplay of effort from the gasoline engine and electric motor. The Fusion also features a slightly stiffer body, independent suspension and electric-steering combine for above-average handling and excellent cornering. I’ve concentrated mainly on fuel economy and performance in this story, but I should note drivers and passengers will also be quite comfortable in an airy and spacious cabin with new seating, a driver-oriented cockpit and the latest generation combination of Ford’s SYNC technology and MyFord Touch communication and infotainment systems, allowing interaction through voice control, a touch-screen tap or with a conventional button. Strangely, gloved fingers work on the touch screen, but not on the instrument panel. And, some of the trim pieces could use a minor upgrade but, on the whole, the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is an all-around good effort — and its sophisticated collection of technologies and performance dynamics gives you a pretty good indication of why it won its class as AJAC’s 2013 Best New Family Car Over $30,000. Yes, the Fusion lineup has come a long way over the past decade — and, it still has a ways to go. But, together with its much-anticipated Energi Plug-In sibling, Ford’s 2013 Fusion Hybrid offers a pleasant package of driving dynamics and fuel economy and a viable midsize family car alternative for environmentally conscious consumers.
The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE is not exactly your average fuddy-duddy hybrid. This sleek, stylish performer is enhanced with the 18-inch wheels and sporty spoiler of an added Appearance Package.

With the secondgeneration of the Panamera GT sedan, Porsche is introducing the worldâ€™s first plugin hybrid to the luxury class. Along with the 416 horse power Panamera S E-Hybrid, two luxurious executive versions are also making their debut, with an extended wheelbase and an entirely new three-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine for the Panamera S and Panamera 4S. New and further developed technologies have enabled fuel savings of up to 56 per cent, while further enhancing operating and driving comfort and performance. The new generation celebrates its world premiere at the Shanghai Auto Show, which opens its doors on April 21. The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a systematically advanced development of the parallel full hybrids with a more powerful electric motor, a higher-performance battery that supplies more energy and the ability to charge it externally from the electrical grid. The electric drive produces 95 horse power (70 kW), which is more than double the power of the previous modelâ€™s electric motor at 47 horse power (34 kW). It draws its energy from a newly developed lithium-ion battery, which, at 9.4 kWh, has over five times the 1.7 kWh energy capacity of the previous battery in nickel metal-hydride technology. The new generation of Panamera models will be launched in Canada in the fall. Prices start at $89,500 for the Panamera, rising to $94,800 for the Panamera 4. The Panamera S is priced at $106,600 and the Panamera 4S at

EYE ON COMMUNITY
Welcome to KTW’s Eye On Community page, where we showcase through the camera lens, positive events in Kamloops. If you have a photo of a charity donation, a grand-opening picture or other uplifting images, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “eye on community” in the subject line.
STOLEN MOMENTS SQUARED: On March 27, 35 square and round dancers from Salmon Arm and Blind Bay arrived on a bus to take part in a Hawaiian theme dance with the Kamloops Square Dance Club. There is an old custom that if a caller and square of dancers arrived at another club’s regular dance night, they are allowed to “bannernap” (kidnap) that club’s banner. The only way it can be retrieved is if the club from which it was stolen arrives on a regular dance night. Lessons will start in September with a 10-week course. More information about the dance club can be found by calling 250 376-5636, emailing email@example.com or going online to DancingKeepsYouYoung. ca and TakeMeDancing.squaredance.bc.ca.

In Memory of
April 16, 2011
O Lord, life isn’t the same since Mom died; I will never forget Mom always stood by my side. I keep remembering about the special times we shared, I keep thinking about how much you cared. Each day we think about you And realise you have gone, We can’t explain the emptiness That life has now become. They say that time’s a healer, But we are not too sure, For every time we think of you We miss you more and more.
Dad you are dearly loved and missed by your family
Lord, I’m doing all that I can to be strong, It feels as though a part of me is gone. Each time I think of you my heart hurts so much, I long for your gentle touch. I long for one more big hug and one more call to say good night, I LOVE you Mom with all of my might.
Our Friend, Our Hero, My Husband, Our Dad Two years have passed but not a day goes by where you are not remembered. Your spirit lives strong in each one of us. We miss you dearly. You would be so proud of our daughters!
God Bless. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain “ ... REV. 21:4
ALL MY LOVE, Bren
August 18th, 1932 ~ April 7th, 2013
Love Shannon, Kaitlyn, Alana and Marilyn
TO ALL PARENTS
By Edgar Guest
“I’ll lend you for a little time A child of Mine” He said, “For you to love while he lives, And mourn when he is dead. It may be six or seven years, Or twenty-two or three, But will you, till I call him back Take care of him for Me? He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, And should his stay be brief, You’ll have his lovely memories As solace for your grief.
It is with sorrow that we announce the passing of Ken Nagel of Kamloops, BC, on April 7th, 2013 at 80 years of age. Ken is survived by his children, Debra Alain, Dean (Sue) Nagel and David (Terri) Nagel, grandchildren Natalie Loisoa, Desiree Nagel, Adam Alain, Virginia Stanton, Dustin Nagel, Morgan Alain, Connor Nagel and Aleah Taylor. Ken is also survived by his sister Lori (Bob) Johnson, brother Andrew (Teri) Nagel and all their children. He is predeceased by wife Eleanor, parents Paul and Lillian and brother Harvy. Ken was born August 18th, 1932 in Eatonia, Saskatchewan. Ken worked on the family farm in his younger years. He taught himself to play the saxophone and piano. The end of the harvest could never come fast enough for Ken, as he couldn’t wait to go out goose hunting. Ken met Eleanor Arnesen to whom he got married in 1955. They moved to Kamloops in 1971 where Ken got a job with CN until his retirement. Always with a quick wit and dry sense of humor, Ken was loved by many and will be greatly missed. Special thanks to the staff of 6 South and the many wonderful people of Hospice. As per the family’s wishes, there will be no formal service. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com
I cannot promise he will stay Since all from earth return, But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn. I’ve looked the wide world over In my search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes, I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, Nor think the labour vain, Not hate Me when I come To call and take him back again? I fancied that I heard them say Dear Lord, Thy will be done. For all the joy this child shall bring, The risk of grief we’ll run. We’ll shelter him with tenderness. We’ll love him while we may, And for the happiness we’ve known Forever grateful stay. And should the angels call for him Much sooner than we’d planned, We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand.
If I Knew If I knew it would be the last time That I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep. If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day. If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say “I love you,” instead of assuming you would KNOW I do. If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away. For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right. There will always be another day to say “I love you,” And certainly there’s another chance to say our “Anything I can do?”
But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day, That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear Take time to say “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.” And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.

ELECTRICITY STRIKES AGAIN The state of California has the highest number of green cars to be found in North America. That is exactly why Fiat and GM chose to unveil their first entirely electric production models, the Fiat 500E and the Chevrolet Spark EV, at the most recent Los Angeles Auto Show. There is no doubt that this type of vehicle is on a major rise in popularity everywhere, but the main marketing thrust for Chrysler (with Fiat as intermediary) and GM is to sell a car that will help Californians respect future state standards for zero emission vehicles. By 2025, 15.4 percent of vehicles sold in California will have to conform to these standards. If its spec sheet is to be believed, the Spark EV seems to be the most proficient of the two models. The electric motor developed by GM produces 130 horsepower (110 kW) and 400 pound-feet of torque. The 20 kWh lithium-ion battery can quickly recharge itself, thanks to the SAE combo DC fast-

By using a 240-volt recharge post, a fully charged battery can last 7 hours. GM has confirmed that this car will have the longest autonomy of all electric city cars.
For the Fiat 500E, Fiat has announced a battery autonomy distance of 130 kilometres. Recharge time is estimated at 4 hours on a 240-volt outlet. The electric motor can produce
111 horse power. The transformation of the 500E required engineers to improve the aerodynamics of the body as well as interior soundproofing.

Automatics continue to evolve Porsche has broken ranks in offering a gearbox with seven speeds. For the time being it is unlikely that compact and subcompact cars will come equipped with more than six gears, due to the lack of space under their hoods. This new technology is therefore limited to bigger cars, which explains why smaller car manufacturers are turning towards CVT transmissions (continuously variable transmission). Reliable, light and compact, this type of transmission offers an infinite number of gear ratios in automatic or semi-automatic mode. Compared with manual gear boxes, most CVTs offer savings at the pump as well as improved acceleration times. The only drawbacks are that they entail an added expense at the time of purchase and some manufacturers haven’t yet found a way to reduce the amount of engine noise created during acceleration.

The development of direct fuel injection systems has enabled gasoline engines to be more fuel efficient in recent years. Nevertheless, even with the arrival of this technology gas engines are far from being as economical at the pump as hybrid or diesel engines. To reduce the appetites of these gas guzzlers, engineers have been concentrating on the development of new automatic gearboxes that will soon offer nine or even 10 speeds. For example, Hyundai is working to develop a 10-speed gearbox for its Genesis and Equus models, which already benefit from an eight-speed transmission. In addition, Audi, Bentley, BMW, and Chrysler are all offering models with eight gears. Studies show that these allow gas savings of approximately 11 per cent compared to six-speed gearboxes. In the domain of manual transmissions,

Spring Edition 2013
Mid-sized cars are making a comeback The past few years have seen compact cars taking over a large part of the sedan and mid-sized car market. However, this year the scene is set for a reversal in that trend with the launch of a series of new mid-sized models. Included in the list of new arrivals are such well-known model names as the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Mazda6 and Nissan Altima. That’s on top of the Kia Optima, Toyota Camry, and Volkswagen Passat which were completely reworked last year. The Subaru Legacy is also benefitting from some esthetic and mechanical improvements this year. This wave of new mid-sized cars includes several models that have abandoned their V-6 engines for more fuel efficient four-cylinder versions. The Malibu, Fusion, Mazda6, Optima, and Sonata have turned their backs on the V-6 leaving

Designers work to design better police cruiser Mercedes-Benz, BMW, GM and Honda among automakers that impressed The most recent Los Angeles Auto Show was once again the scene of the Design Challenge and this time the theme was Highway Patrol Vehicle 2025. Several automobile manufacturers competed in the ninth edition of the world famous show-down. Although some design teams presented computergenerated plans, others pushed their creative instincts much further by creating some truly innovative vehicles. The most realistic concept was the work of Mercedes-Benz, which presented a futuristic version of its celebrated G-Class model. Named Ener-G-Force, this police vehicle comes equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell that powers four motors (one per wheel). The Ener-G-Force has the ability to recuperate rain or recycled water to feed its fuel cells. The liquid is stored on the roof and is transformed into hydrogen by hydro-tech
Mercedes-Benz predicts the Ener-G-Force will be a suitable police vehicle for 2025.
converters, which emit only water vapor as a byproduct. Mercedes-Benz claims the car would have an autonomy of nearly 800 kilometres. Other characteristics include a roof-mounted 360-degree terrain mapper, which reads the terrain and makes automatic adjustments to the suspension according to the obstacles it detects. BMW also demonstrated ingenuity with the E-Patrol, which, when caught in traffic, can deploy a flying drone or two terrestrial drones in order to continue a pursuit. Not to be outdone, GM engineers created the Volt Squad, made up of three vehicles â€” the Observe, Pursuit and Enforce. Hondaâ€™s Drone Squad is a two-vehicle system, with the Auto-Drone operating as an unmanned mission control vehicle (which can also be driven by a police officer), accompanied by the Moto-Drone, a motorbike which is controlled by the driver of the Auto-Drone.

Things you need to know before buying a car Buying a vehicle, whether new or used, represents a huge expense for most people. That’s why it is crucial to be well-informed before signing a purchase contract. Here are a few tips to help you save time and money.
If you’re interested in a new car, be sure to read up on road tests carried out by different car reviewers. The opinions of these experts will help you confirm or discard your choices.
Get all the facts
Road tests and inspections
Firstly, before you even start shopping around, determine your needs and the type of vehicle you prefer. Set a maximum budget and find out the selling prices of vehicles that interest you. After narrowing down your choices, get as much information as possible about the vehicles in question. If you’re thinking about purchasing a used vehicle, a visit to the Transport Canada website can be very useful for finding out about any current recalls applicable to the models that interest you. Other sites that publish consumer reviews about the reliability of makes and models can help you steer away from lemons and sniff out money-saving deals.
The next step is the road test, for both new and used cars. This is one of the most important steps, as a particular vehicle doesn’t necessarily suit every driver. Don’t hesitate to ask for a longer road test than the one that is suggested to you; after all you’re the customer. In the case of a used vehicle, it is always best to have a road test and a mechanical inspection. Most car dealerships will agree to let you have the car inspected by an independent mechanic you trust.
a good time to buy. Car dealers often have monthly objectives to meet and therefore will be able to offer rebates to clear the lot for the arrival of next year’s models. For a used vehicle, compare the prices of other similar models.
price to include a margin of profit, which is totally normal. This leaves you some room to negotiate. Be on the lookout for any deals that are being offered by manufacturers. Also, month- and year-ends are
Negotiate Lastly, prepare to negotiate. Whether you are looking for a new or used vehicle, keep in mind that the car dealer has fixed his or her
Once you have come to a decision, make an offer in order to get the best price possible. Don’t be in a rush to buy — remember that this will be an important investment for you, so make sure you think things through.

The Aston Martin DB5 is definitely one of 007’s favourite rides.
Drive another day The Aston Martin DB5 is the most enduring of 007’s many rides — but just one in a long line of super spy cars featured in Bond films The lucky James Bond has always been associated with the sleekest, poshest cars. Over the 50 years of his prolific film career, secret agent 007 has driven a lot of British cars, including the Bentley, Lotus, Triumph, Land Rover, Rolls Royce, and Austin. He has also been seen at the steering wheel of French (Citroen and Renault), Italian (Alpha Romeo), American (Ford, Chevrolet, and AMC) and German cars (BMW and Audi) — not to mention all the motorcycles, military vehicles, planes, helicopters, and even spacecraft that he has handled. But, even if James Bond has flirted with all those other cars over the course of his career, his greatest love has always been the Aston Martin DB5. Many of 007’s films have featured them, including Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965) and GoldenEye (1995). The famous secret agent has also had the pleasure of revving the
engines of DB5s in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969), Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace (2008). In the film Die Another Day (2002), James Bond was at the controls of an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, and he drove a V8 Vantage Volante in The Living Daylights (1987). Now, in the most recent James Bond movie, Skyfall, the DB5 is back once more, and Q is, of course, the brains behind its creation. He cannot be beaten in such a perfect ride, equipped with a bulletproof bumper, side and back windows, an oil and smoke spreader, a machine gun, changeable licence plate and GPS. And, to get rid of unwanted passengers, it’s even possible to activate an ejection seat from the gear shift. As for all those villains from S.P.E.C.T.R.E. and other top-secret criminal organizations, they too have been seen driving a vast range of fast cars of all makes and models.
With a bold, athletic exterior proﬁle and new rear liftgate design, RAV4 is sure to attract attention. Its premium interior with available French stitching keeps everyone in both comfort and luxury. If you’re moving large items from A to B, fold down the rear seats and enjoy RAV4’s versatile class-leading cargo space†.

Mercedes-Benz goes electric with E-Cell A prototype of the Mercedes electric-powered SLS AMG E-Cell concept car was unveiled at the latest Paris Motor Show in France. Marketed as the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, this exotic, high-performance car will be distributed in a limited series at an approximate price of $550,000. Available in a blue hue called “Electricbeam magno AMG,” this powerful German car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. Engineers made this possible by using four electric motors with a combined power of 751 horse power and 738 pound-feet of torque. The lithium-ion battery, with a capacity of 60 kWh, weighs just over 1,200 pounds and guarantees a driving range of 250 kilometres.

Toyota to market 21 hybrid models by 2015 Since the launch of the Prius in Japan in 1997, Toyota has not only become the pioneer in hybrid technology, it has every intention of remaining the sector’s leader. The manufacturer, which expects to sell 1 million vehicles of this type in 2013, has announced that it intends to market 21 hybrid vehicles between now and 2015. Among these 21 vehicles, 14 will be completely new while the rest will be redesigned models from the current lineup. The Toyota group, which includes the Lexus, Scion, Daihatsu and Hino makes, plans on selling a total of about 9.8 million vehicles of all types in 2012. These figures could allow the Japanese automaker to finish in first place on a global basis, beating General Motors and the Volkswagen group.
All-electric models As well as their success in
The 2013 Toyota Yaris Hybrid.
hybrid motor design, Toyota has just unveiled its 100-percent electric vehicle. Named the eQ and built on the Scion iQ platform, this small car is powered by a battery that can recharge in three hours using a household 220-
volt power outlet. Once charged to full capacity, this town-dweller has a driving range of 100 kilometres. The launch of the eQ is planned for December 2013 within targeted markets in Japan and the United States, where its
demand is justified by the climate and market. In the compact multi-purpose segment, Toyota will offer an electric version of the RAV4 in 2013. This vehicle was designed with the help of the Californian
manufacturer Tesla, which builds the S and Roadster models. Among other developments in the alternative-energies domain, Toyota hopes to launch a sedan powered by a hydrogen fuel cell in 2015.
If you own diesel, you need to know Thompson Valley Diesel Injection, the only authorized Stanadyne, Alliant Power and Bosch dealer in the Kamloops region. Owner Holly Anderson and his staff of eight at the Notre Dame store in Sahali are experts on all things diesel — from excavators to the family pickup. “We are your one-stop diesel shop for all your diesel needs,” “We never lose and we never quit!” And, quit they never have at Thompson Valley Diesel Injection, which has been helping customers for more than 25 years and plans to keep serving drivers for another quarter-century. The certified and licensed mechanics of Thompson Valley Diesel Injection can do it all — rebuild turbo chargers, finesse fuel-injection systems, perfect pumps and much, much more. In addition to these talents, the staff has expertise in service, parts supply and replacement and rebuilds. However, beyond the knowledge, skill and passion for what they do, perhaps the most important aspect of Thompson Valley Diesel Injection can be summed up in the philosophy of the company. “We always try to remember what it is like to be standing on the other side of the counter.” If you have a diesel, come talk to Thompson Valley Diesel Injection. They can be found at 767 Notre Dame Dr., just past Andre’s Electronics.

On the whole, GMC does not like being referred to as a truck brand, since the manufacturer does not build medium- or heavyduty trucks anymore. Nevertheless, in addition to making pick-ups of all sizes, the company offers quite a few interesting SUVs and CUVs that might not qualify as trucks but seem to fit well within the segment. Your local GMC dealer can show you some of the nice models the company is putting out these days. The smallest GMC available remains the tough looking Terrain, a compact vehicle capable of seating five people. It is offered with front- or all-wheel drive and either a four-cylinder engine or the newer 3.6litre V-6, both with a sixspeed automatic transmission. GMC dealers also have the smooth-looking Acadia on offer, a real CUV with front- or allwheel drive and a new V-6 engine. The Denali is the luxury version. The same trim can be found in the most impressive Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs. By the way, this fullsized truck is also available with a hybrid-electric configuration. GMC pick-ups come in many sizes and capacities. A totally new generation of GMCs is reportedly coming our way — although, despite some improvements for 2013, the heavy duty versions will remain largely the same. We can also expect a newer version of the compact Canyon to appear in the following months.
GMC’s smaller Terrain SUV is now available with upscale Denali trims.

DEFINE YOUR NEEDS WHEN RV SHOPPING The purchase of an RV is a major investment that requires a lot of research. Here are a few questions that will help you to choose the perfect model for your needs: • How will we use the vehicle? • Are we always going to be alone or will we have visitors? • Which features and accessories do we want and which do we really need? • Do we want a trailer, which requires a sufficient towing vehicle, or a self-contained RV? • Does our budget include the costs of financing, insurance and gas? • Can we maintain and/or fix it up ourselves or will we have to rely on the dealer? When examining an RV for sale, consider these questions: • Is the roof designed to facilitate drainage? • Are there air bubbles under the roof’s membrane? • Are the cabinets and storage spaces well built? This is an indication of the vehicle’s overall quality. • Are the wiring and piping under the RV firmly attached? Finish off by asking vendors the following questions: • What is the payload capacity of the RV? • What is the insulation factor in the roof, walls and floor? • What is the wheelbase/length ratio if it’s a travel-trailer? • If I weigh more than 100 kilograms (220 pounds), can I climb on the roof without damaging it? • What makes this RV a better buy than similar models? Good luck shopping!
It’s camping season — here’s what you need to know The success of any camping experience is the result of meticulous planning. But, if it’s your first camping trip, how can you possibly know all the ins and outs of packing? For all you novice campers out there, here is a list of what you should pack in order to have an unforgettable — and positive — experience. For tenting: Tent and fly, groundsheet, sleeping bag, mattress and compressed-air pump, flashlight and spare batteries, axe, newspaper and fire-starter cubes for campfires, clothesline and first-aid kit. For cooking: Plastic table cloth, water container, cooler, cooking pans, oven mitts, stove and fuel, dishes (preferably unbreakable), utensils (including cutting
knife, can opener, spatula, stirring spoon, bottle opener, can opener, corkscrew), cutlery, aluminum foil, garbage bags, wash basin, dish soap, dish scrubber, towels and Swiss army knife. For having fun: Map of the area, guidebooks, sunscreen, swimsuit, towel, rain gear, warm clothes, insect repellent, camera, books, toys and sports equipment. For rainy days: Garbage bags for storing clothing and sleeping bags before putting them in backpacks, Ziploctype bags for protecting guide books, travel journals and cameras; and a tarpaulin to hang between trees as a roof over the picnic table.

RV families are happy, healthy and active RVing can bring your family together by taking them far away. Whether your passion is camping, mountain biking or touring some of history’s great landmarks, RVing is a wonderfully fun, surprisingly affordable way to get there more often. According to a survey of
RV owners, one of the activities children enjoy most while on an RV vacation is gathering with their families around a campfire— whether it’s to make s’mores, roast marshmallows or tell stories. Survey results also suggest that children who take RV trips with their families plan to continue the tradition
of RV travel when they get older. In fact, nearly 100 per cent of kids who responded to the survey intend to go RVing with their own children when they become adults.
It’s healthy to get away from it all:
RV travellers do more than just hit the road in their vehicles. RVing families get outside and walk, bike, jog, paddle, inline skate, raft and hike — whether it’s down small-town streets, over miles of trails, across pristine lakes, along raging rapids or through landscaped campgrounds. In fact, 86 per cent of RVers hike or walk on their trips, just one reason they are happier and healthier than their non-RVing counterparts. But, the cardiovascular benefits of increased activity are not the only health dividends. Studies show that just taking vacations actually reduces the risk of heart disease and that spending quality time with a spouse or significant other actually lowers a person’s blood pressure.
Stress-free getaways: Increasing activity while on the road, escaping stress,

recharging batteries and bonding/reconnecting with family members all help to explain why RVers feel happier and healthier. RVs reduce vacation stress by allowing travellers to control their own schedule and timetable, by keeping the family relaxed in familiar surroundings and by making spur-of-the-moment getaways possible since the RV can be kept packed with the staples needed to head out of town with little planning. And since rest contributes to overall physical health, sleeping in a familiar, comfortable bed plays a major role in recharging the body’s batteries, something most travellers say they can’t obtain by staying in strange hotels along the way.
What’s for Dinner? The fact RVers can continue to adhere to their solid nutritional habits is also a factor in their healthier lifestyles. Maintaining everyday eating patterns isn’t easy

Gentlemen! Prepare to ride!
ARLEY-DAVIDSON IS LAUNCHING MOTORCYCLE BOOT CAMP, a national program specifically tailored to men who have yet to start riding. Harley-Davidson recognizes there are a ton of questions about how to get started and wants to make it as easy as possible for new riders by offering orientation sessions on subjects such as the basics of motorcycling, Harley-Davidson factory customization, motorcycling gear and the Harley-Davidson motorcycle model families in a fun and vibrant group atmosphere. Retailers will customize events based on language and regional culture, making every event unique. Attendees can expect to mix and mingle over food and drinks throughout the night. Learning-session stations will be set up in the store and will include a Jumpstartsimulator session, encouraging potential riders to hop on a bike, start the engine, switch gears and feel the rumble of their first “test ride.” Other session topics include: • H-D1 Fit Shop — Attendees will be shown how they can make a Harley-Davidson motorcycle their own through special customization options and express their personalities by adapting a bike’s look, sound, riding position and mechanical options. • Service-department tour — From Dyna to Sportster models and Touring to CVO models, all six model families will be explained and outlined. This is where attendees get their hands dirty as they are taken behind the scenes of the service area and introduced to the feeling of wrenching on a motorcycle. Attendees will leave feeling confident and knowledgeable in all things Harley-Davidson motorcycles. • MotorClothes products and general merchandise — Riding gear, seasonal necessities and safety are all aspects that will be highlighted in this session. The importance of the proper gear is crucial in the sport of motorcycling. Attendees can try on gear, including the new Black Label collection. “We are excited to launch the Motorcycle Boot Camp program in Canada”, said Brad Jandrew, marketing director with Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada. “Every guy thinks about riding a motorcycle at one point or another and this program is a great way to take them through the basics in a fun and friendly group environment.”
Motorcycle Boot Camp will showcase the Black Label MotorClothes collection, designed to attract a younger rider. It is a street-inspired collection with a custom washed, worn and comfortable look. For more information on Motorcycle Boot Camp, contact your local authorized Canadian Harley-Davidson Retailer or go online to www.harley-promos.ca.

Live to ride, ride to Live Whether protected by three tonnes of metal and a seatbelt or by leathers and a helmet, all drivers are responsible for motorcycle safety. In fact, besides speed and inattentive driving, the main factor contributing to motorcycle incidents in British Columbia is a failure by other drivers to yield the right-of-way. Provincial laws covering helmet standards and passengers should help reduce the risk of riding and potential injuries; however, greater overall awareness of motorcycles is still vital for preventing serious incidents. With Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month arriving in May, here are some tips for bikers and four-wheeled travellers to encourage all drivers to move in harmony, courtesy of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
Driving a car or truck?: Treat motorcycles like they are as big as other vehicles. Sure, motorcycles don’t take up as much lane space as a dual-cab pickup, but they often adjust lane positions to avoid road debris and respond to wind and passing vehicles.
Allow motorcycles plenty of lane space: Double-check those blind spots. The motorcycle’s smaller size still has to be taken into consideration, especially when changing lanes. Use your turn signal and take extra care to ensure the way is clear.
Back off: Stopping distances for cars and motorcycles are about equal, but wet conditions can make quick stops difficult for both. What might be a mere fender-bender between two cars could end up much more serious with a motorcycle involved.
Be extra cautious pulling in front: Due to their smaller size, motorcycles can appear farther away than they actually are. They can also be hidden behind other larger vehicles, so ensure you have lots of space to turn in front without interrupting the oncoming motorcycle.
Does the bike have turning signal on?: Play it safe and wait until it turns. Change lanes for merging motorcycles.
While we suggest getting out of the way for all vehicles merging onto the highway, changing lanes to leave room for motorcyclists is particularly important.
Driving a motorcycle?: Avoid the centre of lane when traffic slows. It’s best to have a quick exit strategy when traffic suddenly grinds to a halt. Keeping to the left or right of your lane allows you to escape quickly if a trailing vehicle fails to stop in time.
BUY A 2013 VICTORY AND GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT. IF IT’S TOO MUCH BIKE FOR YOU, JUST BRING IT BACK. ®
Dress to be seen and protected: Wearing reflective clothing and bright colours helps other drivers see you. Also, wearing an approved helmet and garments made of leather, or Kevlar, can protect you if you fall.
Protect your body from head to toe: Target open spaces. Think of it as an invisible shield. The more space you surround yourself with, the better. That way, you’re staying out of drivers’ blind spots and avoiding any sudden movements.
Cancel those signals: Continuing straight ahead? Get used to checking your signals when coming up to intersections, ensuring you aren’t sending false messages.
Never come between a car and its off- ramp: How many times have you seen a vehicle suddenly cross over to a highway off-ramp at the last second because the driver wasn’t paying attention? When approaching off-ramps, it’s best to be in the left lane or, at least, ensure there aren’t any vehicles to your left. Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than other drivers, but it’s up to everyone to be motorcycle aware on the roads. Do you live for the ride? If so, ride to live and share your concerns with friends who drive cars and trucks. Seeing the face behind the visor can help get the message across.

Volkswagen remains the most affordable German product At any mention of German cars, the name Volkswagen always comes to the car buyer’s mind. It’s no wonder as the brand was among the first reasonably priced foreign cars to hit our shores in the early 1950s. Volkswagen still has a selection of affordable cars and light trucks on offer, starting with the well-known Golf, a compact car now available as a station wagon, a sport GTI, or a racy all-wheel-drive R. The Beetle is a retro-looking version of the Golf, while the Jetta can be had as a station wagon or as a bigger sedan with a trunk. By the way, Volkswagen also has a unique coupe-convertible car, the Eos, which is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. In recent years, Volkswagen has been producing an American car, the Passat, built in Tennessee. Like the cars mentioned above, the Passat can be delivered with a five-cylinder, V-6 or turbodiesel engine. In light trucks, Volkswagen has a minivan, the Routan, which is made in Canada. Available in seven model trims, the
Routan is a front-wheel drive powered by an impressive V-6 engine. There are two light SUVs in the Volkswagen family as well — the popular Tiguan, a compact truck powered by a peppy turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and the mightier Touareg, a big SUV available with a V-6 engine, a turbocharged diesel V-6 or with a powerful supercharged V-6 combined with an electric motor.

Thank You Kamloops & Surrounding Area for 20 Successful Years! 20 years in business, Wow! It can be amazing how time flies. When we opened Cactus Collision in 1993, we had humble goals and a lot of worries. Would we succeed? How to do this, how to do that? It was an interesting experience, to say the least. But before long, the people of Kamloops & surrounding areas came to the forefront. Our questions became less “How to do” and more “How to help”. We love being able to help our neighbors, friends, and trusted clients. After 20 years in business, we have taken those “How to” questions and turned them into “Must Do” company policies. Cactus Collision always takes pride in ensuring quality service, and smile when customers leave happy and satisfied.

Lots of fun in store with new Mazda6 Following the fairly sucSPECIFICATIONS cessful introduction of its brand new CX-5 compact Brand: Mazda SUV, Japanese automaker Model: Mazda6 Mazda is now launching a Category: Mid-sized totally re-designed Mazda6 sedan mid-sized sedan. Weight: 1,444 kg Naturally, it looks like a Length: 487 cm Mazda — but it does have Engine: I-4, 2.5 L, 189 a bit of the flavour of the hp CX-5, especially in the Transmission: 6-speed front grille. The all-new Mazda6 automatic/manual is slightly bigger than the Passengers: Five older model it replaces. As expected, Mazda engineers included the SkyActiv technology in designing the new sedan. This also explains why there is no longer a V-6 engine included in the catalogue. For the time being, this front-wheel-drive car comes only with a 189-horse-power, 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, and is available with a six-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. In a few months’ time, Mazda intends to offer a totally new four-cylinder turbodiesel engine as part of the SkyActiv philosophy. The interior of the Mazda6 has also been redone, with everything carefully rethought. Seats are very comfortable and there is more cabin space than ever. This car is aimed at a mature audience looking for a reliable and comfortable sedan.
Honda tinkers with Civic Among Honda’s most popular vehicles, the compact Civic has to be one of its greatest and longstanding hits. What makes the car so popular is its solid reputation and great design, refreshed just last year. There were so many remarks concerning that update that Honda has slightly restyled its great car again this year. The newest Honda is almost the same as last year’s but with quite a few different trims. For example, the most luxurious model gets a new front-end and new tail lights. The changes that really count here are the refined interior trims, featuring new and softer materials.

Remember that the Civic is also available in a hybrid version, with a 1.5litre four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor that delivers 130 horsepower.

Chevrolet is expanding its lineup Chevrolet is a very popular brand in North America and it is bound to become even more so, thanks to some of the newest additions to its lineup. These include some smaller cars, such as the tiny Spark city car, the Sonic sub-compact and the Trax, a miniature CUV. People looking for more “regular” cars will be interested in the compact Cruze — one of the top-selling cars in the world — as well as the revolutionary Volt electric car, the all-new Malibu mid-sized sedan and the completely redesigned Impala. In addition, Chevrolet still produces some of the most interesting sports cars on the market, such as the Camaro coupe or convertible and the all-new and re-engineered 2014 Corvette. Chevrolet has also remained very active in the truck segment. It sells some of the most popular CUVs and SUVs, starting with the diminutive above-mentioned Trax and continuing with the popular Equinox, the restyled Traverse and the mighty Tahoe and Suburban. Chevrolet popularity also extends to pick-up trucks such as the mighty Silverado, whose refined design will appear later in the year. This model is also offered as a real work truck under the HD moniker. The mid-sized Colorado is bound to make an important comeback as a totally restyled vehicle — and note this is the last year for the unique Avalanche SUV, which transforms into a pickup. Last but not least, Chevrolet is bringing back its legendary Express delivery van, which is also available as a people mover.
SABER grills combine Performance, Innovation, and Affordability. We have incorporated features that allow you to relax and enjoy serving delicious food to your family and guests. All Saber® grills cook with 100% Infrared heat locking the natural juices and moisture into your food. Our patented cooking system vents convective air, which dries your food out, away from the cooking surface. Flare-ups are eliminated and foods cook more quickly and efficiently. SABER® grills heat from 0 to 700F in 10 minutes or less and our patented Infrared Cooking System allows for a wide range of temperatures. Our exclusive Zonal Cooking system allows you to sear a stake and cook fish side by side, all at the same time. From slow-roast to sear, there is not anything your SABER® grill cannot cook better. Easier and Faster Assembly: Streamlined assembly steps using a single common fastener and more factory pre-assembly means you will be grilling sooner with a SABER® grill. Simple and Easy Fuel Conversion: Easily change fuel sources from propane to natural gas, or for built-in grills from natural gas to propane, using our patented EZNG or EZLP conversion kit. (sold separately) Every SABER® grill has an electronic ignition point at EVERY burner plus a redundant “carry-over” ignition system that ensures a reliable and safe start every time you grill. Better for the Environment: BTU’s have nothing to do with cooking performance, but everything to do with how often you refill your propane tank or the size of your gas bill. You can no cook faster with fewer BTU’s, reducing your gas consumption by 30%, which makes it good for both your wallet and the environment.
INFRARED VS. TRADITIONAL CONVECTIVE COOKING SYSTEMS Both systems start with gas-powered burners. A traditional convection gas grill uses circulating hot air, like an oven, to cook. Hot air circulates around the food, which dries out the natural moisture in steaks and chicken and shrinks hamburgers into hockey pucks. When grease drips through the open grate, it causes flare-ups that can char the meat and create big temperature fluctuations. An infrared (IR) grill works differently. Most IR grills use expensive ceramic emitters to convert heat from a gas-

powered burner into radiant heat. Because of the open grate design, these grills cook with a combination of radiant heat and convective heat. This combination can be problematic for several reasons. Ceramic IR cooking systems are highly effective at searing food because they burn extremely hot. However, it is almost impossible to vary the temperature and burning your meal is a frequent result. Flare-ups are also a common problem due to the open grate and burner design. Due to their open port design, ceramic IR burners clog with grease and food debris. As they become more sensitive to thermal shock and temperature change and can easily crack causing performance issues and costly maintenance.
The Juiciest, Most Mouth-watering Meals You’ve Ever Cooked SABER® grill’s exclusive and patented Infrared cooking system generates 100% Infrared heat. Radiant heat, unlike convection heat used by traditional gas grills, directly cooks your food. Convection cooking relies on hot, dry air and radically reduces food’s natural moisture content. Our patented Infrared cooking system directs airflow away from the cooking surface, locking the food’s natural moisture, producing moister, more juicy results.
Flare-ups Have Been Eliminated The unique, patented design of SABER® grill’s cooking grate and IR emitter prevents flare-ups that char meat and create dramatic temperature fluctuations. Instead, our exclusive system vaporizes any drippings and adds natural smoke flavor to grilled foods. Since liquids and debris are prevented from reaching the burner system, maintenance and clean-up are much easier.
304 Commercial Grade Stainless Steel Burners, Emitters, & Grates 304 commercial grade corrosion resistant stainless steel is used in the construction of SABER® burners, IR emitters, and cooking grates, guaranteeing years of worry-free and maintenance-free cooking enjoyment.
Highly Fuel Efficient and Reduced Gas Usage BTUs have nothing to do with cooking performance, but everything to do with how often you refill your propane tank or the size of your gas bill. SABER® grill’s Infrared cooking system is designed with fuel efficiency in mind. Our patented IR cooking system uses Infrared’s longer energy wave to more effectively and efficiently cook food, locking in moisture and reducing cooking times. You can now cook faster with fewer BTUs, reducing your gas consumption by 30%. That makes it good for both your wallet and the environment.

Mix business with pleasure Golf is a great game for building friendships, socializing, and forming business relationships. The greens are not just an ideal place to meet people who share the same passion — golf can widen your circle of contacts and build trusting relationships with clients and business partners. Whether you’re a manager of a large enterprise or just a salesperson starting your career, there’s no hierarchy on a golf course. The chairman of the board and the new office employee might very well share the same golf cart, discuss many different subjects and become loyal golf partners. A few golf games with potential clients could lead to interesting business opportunities in the short or long term. A golf tournament is a great opportunity to bring employees in the same office closer together and to meet people from surprisingly diverse backgrounds.

Nothing ﬁshy about how our lakes are stocked In British Columbia, about 800 lakes and streams are stocked annually with more than eight-million trout, char and kokanee produced from the five facilities operated by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC (FFSBC). The Ministry of Environment’s regional-lakes biologists submit their lake stocking requests for the number of fish, a specific strain and species, the life stage and a preferred size. Most lakes in B.C. are accessible by road, so the most common method of stocking fish is by tanker truck. The fish have an oxygen supply in these tanks as they travel several hours to reach their new homes. Frequent stops are made by the fish culturist to check the
oxygen levels and water temperatures in the tank to ensure the fish remain comfortable during their trip. The fish are released into the water by pouring them out of a bucket or by a flexible tube. When a lake is not accessible by road, the alternative is air release. Approximately 200 systems in the province are stocked by use of a helicopter. A 100-foot cable hangs below the helicopter with a frymover container at the end. Guided by a fish culturist to find a suitable release spot, the pilot controls the release of the fry by using an electronic switch.

Although the fry are released 20 feet above the water’s surface, they land safely in the waiting pools. The FFSBC stocks rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, brook char, steelhead and kokanee salmon for the angler. Each strain and species occupies unique habitats and offers different angling experiences. The Ministry of Environment will request a strain and type of fish that is best suited for that environment. Salmon species are released by federal facilities. Fish are released several times a year, primarily during the spring (March to May) and fall (September to November).

Dart proves bull’s-eye for Dodge’s sales game Unveiled last year at the Detroit Auto Show, Dodge’s new compact sedan, the Dart, is at the forefront of that company’s recent major changes. Indeed, the Dart is the very first product built in co-operation with Italian manufacturer Fiat, Chrysler’s new owner. Based on the platform of an Alfa-Romeo, one of Fiat’s cars, the Dart looks big but it is still a compact car. This front-wheel drive is powered by one of three fourcylinder engines, available with a standard shift or automatic transmission. The Dart is also available in a performance R/T version. Beside the Dart is the mid-sized Avenger, another frontwheel-drive sedan. This one is available with a four-cylinder engine or the mighty Pentastar V-6. The biggest Dodge is still the recently redesigned Charger sedan. This mighty all-American car comes with rear- or allwheel drive and a Pentastar V-6 or one of the potent HEMI V-8s. Dodge also markets a great-looking sporty coupe, the superb Challenger, available in many versions including the powerful 392. There is another sports car in the family, the unique Viper, which is all-new from bumper to bumper. Note that the Viper is no longer considered a Dodge; rather, it is now known as an SRT. Dodge dealers also have trucks to offer, starting with the Journey CUV, the most popular of its segment in Canada. The now-legendary Grand Caravan van continues to be offered as a commercial vehicle, the Ram C/V. The Durango CUV still is in the Dodge line-up, although the Ram pick-up trucks are now a brand by themselves.
The Dart signals new things to come from Dodge.
