Proudly serving Williams Lake and the Cariboo-Chilcotin since 1930

Charges against Gentles approved

VOL. 83. No. 35

WORKING FORWARD Greg Sabatino photo

Close to 40 people gathered at City Hall Sunday morning to participate in the National Day of Mourning ceremony to raise awareness of those killed, injured or disabled in the workplace. Members of the United Steelworkers-Local 1-425, North Central Labour Council, City of Williams Lake officials and MLA candidates were on hand. Here, (from left) Tracy Wilson and son Jesse-John Wilson-Taylor, Verna Fisher, United Steelworkers-Local 1-425 president Paul French and USW member Terry Tate lay flowers and wreaths near the memorial at City Hall. Also discussed at the ceremony was a commitment to continue to make workplace safety a top priority.

Crown has approved seven charges against Martin William Michael Gentles of Williams Lake. They include dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing death, driving with a blood alcohol content over 80 milligrams and causing an accident that resulted in death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, driving with a blood alcohol content of over 80 milligrams in 100 milliliters of blood and causing an accident that resulted in bodily harm, and for being involved with an accident and leaving the scene. Some of the charges refer to the death of Rayel MacDonald, the 20-year-old nursing student who was killed early April 22, 2012 when she was hit by a truck while crossing Carson Avenue with friends. Gentles’ next appear-

ance in court will be May 8.

Candidates square off at two forums Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Two all candidates forums held in Williams Lake Saturday attracted around 30 viewers to each, with some of the viewers attending both sessions. Both forums were fairly tame, not the fiery or heated sessions. Williams Lake is located in two ridings so candidates from Cariboo-Chilcotin and Cariboo North were invited to participate. Cariboo-Chilcotin Green Party candidate Dustin Price was absent, due to a scheduled tour of the west Chilcotin. At the afternoon session Liberal candidates Donna Barnett, Coralee Oakes, Independents Bob Simpson and Gary Young, and NDP candidate Charlie Wyse participated. NDP Duncan Barnett had a previous commitment. When asked about New Prosperity Mine, Barnett reiterated her support of the project, saying the region “cannot wait any longer”

because the jobs are needed to move the economy forward. Oakes said for too long “we’ve allowed our emotions to take over what scientists or folks who know the facts have to say,” adding forest dependent communities need to look for new revenue. Wyse said the NDP suppport the federal review’s decision on the original proposal. Young said if salmon are protected he’ll support the mine. Simpson said the region has to be willing to accept “no” as an answer if that’s what the environmental review determines. When asked if they supported a seniors advocate that would report directly to the legislature, Simpson said he hopes in September the government will pass legislation to make the position an independent officer of the legislature. “When they made the position a function of the Ministry of Health then seniors felt they wouldn’t be represented.” Donna Barnett said the position

is something new. “Let’s give it a chance. It’s a start and nothing says that the seniors advocate position cannot be changed,” she insisted, adding the position is necessary to deal with elder abuse in B.C. Wyse said more people will go to the seniors advocate if the position is independent of government. Young said all MLAs should be seniors advocates, that’s their job, while Oakes said the position is necessary because of the province’s aging demographic. Candidates were also asked about free medical services for seniors. Wyse, Oakes, Barnett and Simpson said free would be nice, however, the money is not there. They agreed services should be free for low-income seniors. Young said free would be “unbelievable” and should not be dismissed as a possibility. “Seniors have paid their whole lives. Let’s see what we can do.”

In the evening session, only the two Independents and two NDP candidates participated, while both Liberal candidates had previous commitments. As a result, a main theme emerged throughout the forum — Independent versus party representation. Simpson said having three Independent MLAs in the legislature has “fundamentally changed the structure of the legislature.” “I think you can be well served by a party MLA as well as an Independent MLA if all MLAs are free to represent. The constraint of the party system is you quickly hear the echo of the leader’s voice,” he said. “The leader’s voice comes back to the constituency, instead of the other way around.” All systems have strengths and weakness, Wyse said. “The strength of a party system is you get a government and a platform.” See INDEPENDENT Page A2

and helped write it. “I don’t think we need any fundamental change. It’s true the party system is not perfect, there’s always room for improvement, and that’s why I’m happy with some of the commitments the NDP has

made in the governance chapter of our platform.” The role of the MLA is to advocate for their constituents, but another part of the job is working with a caucus to develop policy, legislation, regulation and decided how to do the government’s work, he added. “An Independent can be an excellent critic in the legislature, but I’m

Cariboo-Chilcotin candidates weigh in on New Prosperity

Donna Barnett

Charlie Wyse

Dustin Price

The first question the Tribune asked the candidates running in the provincial election is about their stance on the New Prosperity Mine proposal and process as follows: Under what circumstances do you support the New Prosperity Mine project going for-

MLA, Donna Barnett Liberal Party (incumbent) Cariboo-Chilcotin

I fully support the Prosperity Mine project moving forward. The project was approved by the British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Office and is now being considered by the Canadian Environmental Agency. Once the agency has finished its review, it will submit its findings to the federal minister of environment, who will make a final decision. It then returns to the province to make any necessary adjustments to our approval. This illustrates one of the problems with the environmental review process — until recently, often two separate processes had to occur to obtain a final approval. Our government has worked to improve cooperation and eliminate a duplicative assessment process for a single project, thereby increasing efficiency. Through an agreement with the federal government signed in March, the B.C.’s envi-

ronmental assessment office will conduct environmental assessment for specific projects, while the federal government will provide its expertise. This will eliminate much of the duplication that has existed in the environmental review process.

Charlie Wyse New Democratic Party Cariboo-Chilcotin

The New Democrats are strong advocates for sustainable mining in B.C. I believe that the New Prosperity Mine — like any mine proposal — should be able to proceed if it passes the test of a science-based environmental assessment and legally-required consultation. I also believe we need a better and more efficient process for environmental assessments, because it’s better for business and better for the community if we can get to ‘yes’ or ‘no’ sooner. The NDP will encourage mining jobs in B.C. by extending the mining flow-through share tax credit, we will promote exploration with an average 55-day turn-around time for notice of

ward? Is the current environmental review process working to your expectations? Answers are as follows: work permits, expand and improve B.C.’s apprenticeship system and establish a $100 million needs-based grant program for skills training, to prepare our young people for good-paying jobs.

Dustin Price Green Party Cariboo-Chilcotin

The BC Green Party would not support the Prosperity Mine. If I were to entertain the fact that we would support it, there would need to be a solid balance with the “triple bottom line” in addressing all the concerns of the environment, society, and economics. The long-term effects on the social and environmental values will be at risk with this project. On the question of employment, this is not the saviour project for the region that many supporters claim it is. The majority of the jobs that would be provided are for a highly-skilled labour force that mines rely on. Currently there is a shortage of these workers in British Columbia, so those that would be

employed by the proposed Prosperity Mine are currently working. To go with this fact, mines in B.C. have a history of closing their doors with little or no warning depending on the volatile price of a commodity. This region cannot afford to have a dark cloud of unstable employment hanging over it; the BC Green Party stance on diverse local economies is the way to a bright and stable future.

Gary Young Independent Cariboo-Chilcotin

New Prosperity: any support is completely dependent on the results of the environmental review. This failed previously and prosperity is not getting data required by the panel. The review process is stalled and not working. In candidate forums there seems to be a shift to the no side. This has gone on for 15 years while some other mining properties could be developed.

Cariboo North candidates weigh in on New Prosperity The first question the Tribune asked the candidates running in the provincial election is about their stance on the New Prosperity Mine proposal and process as follows: Under what circumstances do you support the New Prosperity Mine project going for-

MLA, Bob Simpson Independent (incumbent) Cariboo North

Taseko’s revised project proposal has not yet met the requirement to prove it is substantively different than the proposal that was rejected by the last federal panel. I believe Taseko should stand down on its Prosperity project and the provincial government should rescind its permitting of Taseko’s previous proposal. This would allow the provincial and federal governments to begin meaningful dialogue with the Tsilhqot’in National Government to arrive at a rights and title framework for resource development on the

Tsilhqot’in’s traditional territory. The negative press and focus on the ongoing saga of the Prosperity Project has unfortunately tainted the image of the mining sector in B.C. and undermined the significant progress that other companies have made with First Nations in this province.

Duncan Barnett New Democratic Party Cariboo North

The New Prosperity Mine project is one of several potential new mines in B.C.   New mines must pass an environmental assessment to ensure important values like water quality are protected, and must address First Nations issues.

ward? Is the current environmental review process working to your expectations? Answers are as follows:  If the New Prosperity project can meet these legal requirements, I would support it. Mining plays a significant role in the provincial economy, and is a huge economic contributor in the Cariboo North riding.   We have several existing mines and others in the development stage.  I and the NDP support mining and appreciate the good jobs and economic activity mining generates, from the smaller placer mines in Horsefly, Likely and Wells to the large mines like Gibraltar and Mount Polley.  The mining industry knows it must protect environmental values. The NDP supports mining and plans to do so by extending the mining flow through

share tax credit and establishing efficient timelines for environmental assessments.  We will renew and strengthen the assessment process to ensure B.C. will have science-based environmental standards plus real and meaningful consultation with First Nations. We will also encourage mineral exploration by ensuring an average 55-day turnaround of notice of work permits.  The NDP has also committed to investing in mining-related skills training programs to ensure B.C. workers are ready to take on new mining jobs.

Coralee Oakes Liberal Party Cariboo North Cariboo North is one of the most forest dependent regions in British Columbia. For me, this election is about how our region is going to diversify. I believe that mining plays a critical role in creating the jobs that will support and retain our families. The Prosperity Mine project was approved by British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment office and is now being considered by the Canadian Environmental Agency. Once the agency has finished its review, it will submit its findings to the federal minister of environment, who will make a final decision. It then returns to the province to make any necessary amendments to our approval. This illustrates one of the problems with the environmental review process. Until recently, often two separate processes had to occur to obtain a final approval. When I was manager of the Quesnel and District Chamber of Commerce, we wrote policy in support of an improved level of co-operation between the federal and provincial governments resulting in the elimination of a duplicative assessment process for a single project, thereby increasing efficiency. I am pleased that our government has moved in this direction. Through an agreement with the federal government signed in March, the B.C. environmental assessment office will conduct environmental assessment for specific projects, while the federal government will provide its expertise. This will eliminate much of the duplication that has existed in the environmental review process.

Mair, Gillis bringing forum to Williams Lake Rafe Mair and Damien Gillis bring Common Sense Canadian forum to Williams Lake 

In the lead-up to the BC election, Common Sense Canadian co-founders Rafe Mair and Damien Gillis have included Williams Lake in their forum tour to discuss key issues shaping the future

of B.C. The tour is titled Water and Power: The Future of BC’s Energy, Environment and Democracy and will include video clips from filmmaker Gillis, a speech by Mair and an audience question and answer session. The Williams Lake forum will be held May 8

at 7 p.m. in the Williams Lake Secondary School Commons. On the agenda is a web of proposed energy projects which represent the vision of both our provincial and federal governments for the economic future of B.C. - all with profound impacts on our vital freshwater

and coastline, states the Common Sense Canadian press release. The discussion will cover everything from proposed oil and gas pipelines to fracking, Site C Dam, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and private river power projects - to an alternate vision for managing B.C.’s

resources and economy to the benefit of the public and environment.
The non-partisan events will scrutinize the BC Liberals’ economic and environmental record over the past decade, while examining the NDP’s policy positions on issues the like the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline

expansion to Vancouver and the nexus of Site C Dam, natural gas “fracking” and the plan to build a massive LNG industry on BC’s coast.
“Our goal is to provide the public with accurate information and connect the dots between interrelated projects of enormous environment, social,

cultural, and economic significance,” says Gillis. “We’re furthering a much-needed dialogue about the future of our province at a key moment politically.”
The Kamloops and Williams Lake events are co-hosted by the local Council of Canadians chapters. All events are by donation.

Lake Sunday. At approximately 5:35 p.m. on April 28, the Williams Lake RCMP were called to a report of a dumpster filled with recyclable items from the Sandman Inn was on fire in the

back alley of 655 Borland Street. The apartment block is located beside the RCMP detachment in Williams Lake. Police attended with the fire department and determined that several

youth — aged 6 to 8 years — had started the fire inside the dumpster. The youth became trapped inside the dumpster and were pulled to safety by a bystander who saw the flames, the RCMP said.

Assistant fire chief Rob Warnock said when the fire department arrived, the youth had already been pulled out of the dumpster. “The kids were playing in it, lit it on fire, and couldn’t get out when the fire started. The kids weren’t there when I got there, but witnesses said they were fairly small because they couldn’t see over the edge.” Stressing how lucky the children were because they were not injured, Warnock said it took a fire truck and crew to put the fire out. “This could have been so dangerous for those three kids who couldn’t

get out of the dumpster on their own,” he said. RCMP Insp. Warren Brown confirmed the police spoke to the par-

ents of the children and have asked the Ministry of Child and Family Services to engage as well.

T

he Vancouver Sun and Province plan to lay off staff because the two newspapers are no longer economically sustainable. Maybe people aren’t buying the papers because there isn’t enough worthwhile stuff to read. A story by Gordon Hamilton in the April 10 Sun is a case in point. In a piece headlined “BC Miners, First Nations learn to get along”  Mr. Hamilton gave examples of where they get along and where they don’t. He gave the New Prosperity Mine proposal as an example of where they don’t.    He wrote “the process has caused deep divisions between French First NaConnection t i o n s Diana French and the predominately white community of Williams Lake which generally supports the project.” Baloney. I’m not saying there is no division, I’m saying Mr. Hamilton didn’t do his homework. As a long-time “white” resident of Williams Lake, I personally know of four “predominately white” groups and a goodly number of “white”  individuals in the area who believe the reasons given by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s panel for rejecting the first proposal still apply. There are a number of “sides” to this issue. Along with the First Nations concerns there are the adverse environmental impacts of building a huge mine in an ecologically sensitive watershed, as well as significant social and economic issues that need to be addressed.     Perhaps if Taseko spokesperson Brian Battison, the Chamber of Commerce, and Mayor Kerry Cook had deigned to accept the invitation from the impartial Thompson Rivers University (Williams Lake campus) to participate in a public panel discussion with representatives from the Tsilhqot’in and two “white” groups (Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society and Williams Lake Council of Canadians), the divisions wouldn’t be so “deep.” Such a discussion would have everything on the table, instead of the “they say, we say” situation we have now. Whatever. Sometimes families and communities often have disagreements, but we don’t need ill-informed outside media adding fuel to the fire. Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune.

Our Viewpoint

Take on the challenge Last week the B.C. Liberals and the NDP laid out their platforms on how they would help mould and support the youngest minds in the province. The Liberals are offering more of what they’ve been doing, which on the whole has been a boon to young kids and their parents, at least for the past few years. Under the Liberals, the Ministry of Education has implemented full-day kindergarten, and introduced free StrongStart programs into schools for toddlers and parents, which are overseen by early learning educators. Leading into the election, the Liberals are pledging $34 million more for existing Success by Six programs (threatened with deep cuts in 2010) and about $10 million per year for three years to encourage more licenced day care spaces. The NDP is looking to reroute money promised by the Liberals for registered education plans, and direct it to families, about $70 per kid per month for the lowest income bracket. It also vowed $100 million to reduce child care costs by 20 per cent. Despite committing plenty of cash for child care, nei-

ther party (nor the Greens or Conservatives) have dared to announce anything along the lines of universal child care. Arguably, a B.C.-wide subsidized licenced child care program would be a natural continuation of publicly funded education happening now, such as StrongStart, Success by Six, full-day K and the Grade 1 to 12 system. As opposed to topping up existing programs or giving relatively small amounts of cash to people with kids, creating truly affordable child care could make the greatest difference in the lives of working parents. Child care subsidies already exist for low-income families, but a universal low-cost system could finally free parents from calculating if returning to the workforce after a maternity or paternity leave is worth the typically high monthly cost of child care. The benefits of quality early childhood education are touted by educators across Canada. The federal government has abandoned any notion of creating universal child care. Our provincial leaders need to take on the challenge. - Victoria News

uring the provincial election campaign, the Cooperative Housing Federation of B.C. is working to keep low-income, senior and disabled British Columbians in their homes. Between now and 2017, some 1,500 B.C. households will lose RentGeared-to-Income (RGI) subsidies as their federal housing agreements end. That will impact those who can least afford to lose their homes in the most expensive housing market in Canada. Our “You Hold the Key” campaign has actively engaged the main political parties running in the election, meeting with candidates to determine their policies in regards to RGI programs and other issues of concern to co-op members. Last Wednesday’s policy announcement by the NDP, while it mentioned co-operative housing as part of the solution to the affordable housing crisis in B.C., was silent on the question of rental assistance for those in need. Neither the BC Liberals nor BC Conservatives mention housing in their platforms. The Green Party has no stated position on this issue, critical to our members. Here are a few facts on the challenges co-op members face: • During the life of the government we’re to elect, over 1,500 coop households in B.C. will lose the federal rent support that currently makes their housing affordable. The next MLAs hold the key to keeping those homes affordable. • Between now and 2017, one quarter of B.C.’s housing co-ops will lose RGI support. That number will climb to 3,000 households by 2020. That will impact families with lowincomes, the elderly and the mobility-challenged. • From 2011-2014, the federal government is contributing $90 million to the B.C. government for housing. But none of those funds have been ear-marked to assist coop members who will soon lose their federal assistance.
The parties must come forward with clear, transparent policy statements on these important issues. Further, we want the public to know about the looming challenge that faces dozens of co-op communities throughout the province. For more information, please take a look at our website, www.chf. bc.ca/electioncentral. Thom Armstrong is the executive director for the Co-operative Housing Federation of B.C.

Let’s not make the same past mistakes Editor:

When they took over B.C. had a reserve of money to cover downturns in the economy. The NDP bought at least two losing businesses for millions of dollars, Panko Poultry and Ocean Falls Pulp and Paper. These businesses continued on their downward spiral and went broke, anyway. Gone was the money that was saved for any downturn of the economy. B.C. left the NDP in power for the four years.

The economic engine of our province is free enterprise. Our provincial Liberal government is pro investment and free enterprise. Yes, pro business. This is the only place wealth is generated and where real tax dollars come from to support everything we have become used to expect from government. History shows us that when the NDP is in power, it drives business and investment from the province. When Barrett was in power from 1972 to 1975 they squandered millions of dollars on losing business.

government from 1975 to 1991 brought our economy back to life and the province prospered. Investment came back to the business friendly environment. Then along came the NDP again under Mike Harcourt and Glen Clark whose policies again discouraged investment in the province. This time under the NDP we left them governing long enough to ruin the economy and we did end up on federal welfare (equalization payments). Between 1991 and 2013 we have had business- and investment-friendly government. We dug ourselves out and got off federal welfare.

Anger over branding misplaced Editor:   While I no longer live in Williams Lake, I continue to be interested in the future of the town.  I was amazed to read the “Branding” article on the front page of the April 11 Tribune.  People should not be upset

with the package that Taiji Brand Group came up with for Williams Lake. But, rather, should be upset with the fact that your town council spent approximately $40,000 of taxpayers money on the ridiculous idea of “branding” in the first place. Don’t feel too bad,  Ashcroft

paid approximately $40,000 for their “branding.”   “Wellness awaits you.”  Stop the nonsense. Look at it as money lost and throw the idea where it belongs, in the garbage.   Wayne Fox Lac La Hache

B.C. is prosperous again. Let’s keep it that way. Think hard and long when you vote. We don’t want to go back to being a have not province under the NDP. Their track record is not so good. You know where I stand. In-

form yourself on all the parties before you vote. No matter which party you believe in, be sure you get out and vote. Hugh Barrett Horsefly

Be informed about economic opportunities Editor:   This provincial election we owe it to ourselves and to future generations to be informed about the economic issues and policies that keep B.C. moving forward. A good look at what mining and mining exploration do for communities and average families throughout B.C. is www.votemining.ca. When I came across this website I was astounded by what I learned about this vital resource sector and its central role in driving prosperity in this province.  I also learned that we have

achieved a good balance between environmental and economic considerations in B.C. and created a climate that fosters investment. This results in well paying jobs and economic activity that, in turn, support a vast range of small businesses across the small business sector. Take a look for yourself and see how the mining and mining exploration sector touches your life and your community and then support a candidate that supports mining and exploration in B.C. for all of us.   Julie Thony Quesnel

Astounded at judge’s decision; officer owes family an apology Editor: In regards to Jamie Haller (re: Tribune, April 23, RCMP officer acquitted on assault charge).   I expected the judge to say something along the lines of: I

am appalled by your brazen behaviour and unprofessional conduct. Instead the judge supported this intoxicated, frightened and handcuffed child (in the eyes of the law you are a child until your

18th birthday) being brutally punched in the face.  I would call it child abuse.  I believe the motto for the RCMP is serve and protect.  Say what?   This brings to mind a fictional

scenario of two parents beaming with pride at the fact that their child admitted to torturing and killing the family pet.  “Regardless of what our child did he told the truth and that trumps everything else.” 

Solve problems in a simple, practical way Editor: The Tuesday, April 9, Williams Lake city council meeting reminded me of the night council did a presentation when former mayor Scott Nelson had forgotten what his job description was and tried to give our city water to EPCOR. City council chambers were filled with upset Williams Lake residents. Our present mayor and council have also forgotten their job description, in my opinion.

Letters aLways weLcome

That wasted $40,000-plus should not have happened. City residents pay large salaries, pensions and expense accounts, etc. for mayor and council to look after the city’s best interests. This is not happening. Every time a decision is required of mayor and council they hire a consulting firm to waste city taxpayers’ money. I have a better solution — save the pension money, salaries and expense account, fire the mayor and council, hire a consulting

firm, as and when needed. City administration could oversee day to day operation of city interests. I am sure there are enough business men and women who could make up an advisory committee that would be better able to resolve local issues that would not involved going to court with our regional district over fire protection issues, etc. They could also resolve our old Cariboo Lodge issue and reopen the facility as it used to be as a provincially-operated and afford-

able housing complex for seniors who did not make enough money to live in a private for-profit facility. There are many more problems the present mayor and council are unable to deal with. Wasting tax money on studies is what the present mayor and council do best. Solving problems in a simple, practical way is not in their collective ability. Peter Epp Williams Lake

The truth shall set you free?  I believe officer Andy Yung owes this child  and her family an apology.        Dolores Perreault Williams Lake

RCMP seek witnesses in gun incident

Photo submitted

Williams Lake RCMP are asking for witnesses after they arrested a man Thursday afternoon for pointing a gun in Boitanio Park.

The RCMP are requesting information from the public after a man was arrested for pointing a gun in Boitanio Park in Williams Lake Thursday afternoon. “We believe there may have been a related conflict between some people just prior to this incident in the park or nearby area,” Williams Lake RCMP Inspector Warren Brown said Monday. At 3:15 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a complaint about a man pointing a gun in the park. They locat-

ed the male in the park fitting the suspect description, found him in possession of a loaded rifle and other weapons. “This is believed to be a retaliatory incident stemming from an earlier conflict,” Insp. Warren Brown said in a press release. “The investigation is continuing and appropriate charges will be considered when more information is known.” Anyone with information is asked to please contact the RCMP at 250-3926211.

Property crimes drop in lakecity Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer There has been a drop in property crimes in Williams Lake, RCMP Insp. Warren Brown told city council during a quarterly update of 2013 stats. “We’re lower than this time in 2012 with an overall 20 per cent reduction,” Brown said. “There’s a goal provincially to reduce property crime by 10 per cent, so we are above that. It’s very positive.” Calls for service are up from the same time last year, but Brown suggested the increase doesn’t necessarily mean that’s an increase

in crimes. “It could be for disturbances and noise complaints, those types of things.” Brown also discussed the detachment’s annual performance plan in crime reduction, building relationships with First Nations communities, employee investment and domestic violence. “Under crime reduction, the prolific offender program continues to be our main focus. That is to target offenders who are most active and certainly encourage them and provide them with opportunities to change their environment.”

Other crime reduction efforts include targeting individuals with education and awareness at the school level, integration patrols, engaging community policing and targeting “crack shacks” and other drug houses, where criminals often download their property expenses. Corp. Eric Chrona has joined the detachment as the new corporal in charge of First Nations policing. “That brings our section up to full staff for the first time in just over two years,” Brown said. “Corp. Chrona comes with a very robust background and is a welcome addition to our

detachment. In the short time he’s been here, he’s been very focused in the Aboriginal communities.” Chrona told the Tribune he was stationed in Telegraph Creek, north of Terrace, before accepting the position in Williams Lake. For the first time in the history of its operation, the RCMP will be looking at itself more closely to endeavour to improve communication and ensure there is a high level of accountability. “At the end of the day I expect a very high standard of police work and giving the employees the training, guidance

and opportunities we can so we can achieve that,” Brown said. Domestic violence reports continue to be on par with 2012, however, Brown said that is due to a committed effort by stakeholders and groups in the community engaged in offering programs. “We have a domestic violence unit in our detachment. We have a new interagency case assessment team (ICAT) that looks at high risk domestic assault and behaviours.” Domestic violence work is being done in both First Nation and Non-First Nation communities, Brown said.

The parking area must meet all criteria set out in the bylaw: 1. Parking spot must be delineated (must have a clear border) 2. Parking spot must be surfaced either by paving (preferred), crush, or with grindings (available from the City at a low cost) 3. Parking spot must be connected to driveway 4.

Bicycle Rodeo a fun, bike safety program Bicycle safety will be the theme for the Bicycle Rodeo on Saturday, May 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Canadian Tire parking lot. This year the Tim Hortons Bicycle Rodeo committee is teaming up with the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society who, in partnership with Red Shred’s Bike and Board Shed, will offer gently used bicycles for anyone that doesn’t own a bike. Anyone needing a used bicycle is asked to call Carla Glessing with the Conservation Society at 250-3987929. The Bicycle Rodeo promotes safe bicycle riding habits which will reduce accidents involving children. The event is free and offers many interactive activities for children. “Bicycle safety is very important,” said Dave Dickson, Safer Communities co-ordinator. “It is the time of the year when our children are out on the street with their bicycles and if we can teach them safety through this rodeo then everyone wins.” A course with a series of seven safety sta-

tions will give children the opportunity to learn correct riding skills. A thorough safety inspection of the bicycles is the first stop on the course. Professionals will also check the child’s bike helmet to make sure it fits well and is being worm properly. “Children suffer injuries doing wheeled activities because of a combination of factors that most commonly include inexperience, loss of control, lack of traffic safety skills, high speed and the tendency to attempt stunts,” says the Safe Kids Canada website. The remaining bike safety stations will focus on riding techniques and skills. Children will be asked to ride through established courses of figure eights, circles and parallel lines. The emphasis for children at this event is to learn how to control their bicycle. Sponsors of this year’s event include Tim Hortons, Success by 6, United Way, Canadian Tire, Brain Injury Society, Community Policing, Red Shred’s, Boys and Girls Club, Youth for Christ and

Student adventures in Italy and Greece Sharon Smith Special to The Tribune During this spring break students from WLSS and Columneetza went on an adventure of a lifetime traveling in Italy and Greece. We toured with EF Tours – the largest educational tour company in the world and they made sure we had an amazing trip! Our tour began in Florence the birthplace of the Renaissance where we visited the Domo, Piazza della Signoria and the Ponte Vecchio. During free time some of the students climbed the 400+ stairs of the bell tower and saw the original statue of David by Michelangelo in the Museum of Academia. Lots of great shopping and eating pizza, pasta, and the tasting the best gelato in the world! The next day we drove to Vatican City where we met our guide who explained the history and importance of this great place. We toured the Sistine Chapel and saw the beautiful ceiling painted by Michelangelo and then entered into the largest domed church in the world, St. Peters! It is truly awe inspiring to walk through this great church. Then it was off to the Roman Colosseum where we learned about gladiator fights during the time of Roman rulers Vespasian and Titus. Animals were brought from far away Africa and the Roman people were treated to many gruesome fights between animal and man. We then continued our tour through the Roman Forum where Julius Caesar gave many of his speeches and ancient Roman life took place. Then it was onto the Trevi Fountain where the students threw coins over their left shoulders to ensure their return to this amazing city. We had free time around the Spanish Steps with its upscale shopping and ultra modern MacDonald’s restaurant! We were very tired when we finally left the city and drove back to our hotel….the bus ride home was exciting when the bus went up a very narrow roadway only to discover it was a dead end! The driver had to back down a very long, narrow roadway and when we finally arrived at our hotel it was past midnight! Bright and early the next morning we set off on our journey to Pompeii – driving south through the rolling hills of Italy. Another excellent local guide told us the stories of the people who lived in Pompeii before their lives abruptly ended when Mount Vesuvius erupted….so many years ago. The city is very well preserved as it was covered in a thick coat of ash – keeping it intact for so many centuries! We then arrived at the port of Bari

How exciting to get on this huge ship and spend the night. After a great dinner we were rocked to sleep by the gentle rolling of the Adriatic Sea. An abrupt message came over the PA at 7:00 am telling us we had to get off the ship five hours before we thought we had to get off! We all scrambled to dress, pack and have breakfast before leaving the ship.

We met Demetrius our bus driver in Greece and drove to the ancient city of Delphi high in the hills of Greece. Our hotel was magnificent with a beautiful view of the sea of Corinth and steps away from the modern town of Delphi. Everyone had a great time shopping and walking through this beautiful little town. The next morning we were off to the ancient city of Delphi and had a fantastic guide who told us

stories of the oracle of Delphi and how progressive the people of that time were. Our guide really challenged us to think about our lives and to look at life with critical eyes. This was an amazing site where we were able to touch the writing on the rocks that were over 2,000 years old and walk through the ruins imagining life thousands of years ago. Then it was on to Athens with a brief lunch stop where everyone had delicious authentic Greek food! We arrived at our hotel in Athens and were thrilled to find that it was right on the Aegean Sea. The kids enjoyed walking along the beach and watching a beautiful sunset. The next morning it was off to the city of Athens and we could see the Acropolis looming above as we drove into the city. We met our local guide and walked through the streets of Athens and up to the Acropolis where we learned about the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena Nike – whom the city is named after. As we continued our tour through the city we stumbled upon ruins everywhere. We had two wonderful days seeing such sites as the Olympic Stadium from the 1896 Olympics to Hadrian’s Arch and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. See CRUISE Page A15

Sparrow’s Nest Ministries is hosting a fundraising dinner, concert and auction, May 4 starting at 5:30 p.m. in the Thompson Rivers University gymnasium. The group has been making quilts and collecting sewing machines, quilts, shoes, and medical supplies to send by container to Zimbabwe, Africa. Zimbabwe, once a powerful and wealthy nation, has been troubled by colonialism, political and ethnic upheaval, and has had its farming, mining and manufacturing resources decimated. Poverty and hunger are rampant, and about 25 per cent of the population now battles HIV/AIDS, resulting in 1.3 million orphans. Sparrow’s Nest Ministries International is a local charity registered in both Canada and Zimbabwe, making a difference through empowerment, encouragement and support to help Zimbabweans transform their situation and become self-sufficient.

Williams Lake seniors head to BC Games A fundraising event held recently at the Seniors Activity Centre helped to raise funds for local seniors on their way to Prince George in the next few weeks to compete for a spot in the

BC Seniors Games this summer. Ellen Wiege is the co-ordinator for the Williams Lake area BC Seniors Games, and the skip on a local floor curling team. They have won five gold, one bronze and two silver medals so far, and are looking forward to battling it out in Prince George for the chance to represent Zone 9 at the games in Kamloops. Last year the dinner, concert and silent auction raised more than $3,000, supporting 35 senior athletes from

Williams Lake. Williams Lake is part of Zone 9 from Mackenzie to the Lone Butte. About 3,500 senior athletes will compete in sports such as archery, curling, golf, soccer, swimming, tennis and track and field. Wiege said the BC Seniors Games is a great opportunity for local residents. “It’s a lot of fun - it is a great way to make friends,” she said. “When we go to competitions it’s great to see everybody, and it helps us stay active.”

ly. Next year we are heading to Costa Rica to explore this beautiful country. We will experience jungles, beaches, volcanoes, lakes, and the people of this biologically diverse nation. This trip is open

to students who will be in grade 10, 11 or 12 as well as their friends and family. This is a very affordable trip – for more information please contact Sharon Smith at Columneetza or Susan Kurkiniemi at WLSS.

We had fun shopping and eating in the Plaka district and learned how to barter and get great deals! A three day cruise through the Greek Islands was our next adventure – how fun to find our rooms and tour the ship. Our first stop was the beautiful island of Mykonos where we wandered through the streets and saw the old windmills. Our days on the ship were amazing as we lounged on the deck taking in the sunshine, took part in crafts

and lessons, ate amazing meals, and enjoyed the onboard experience. But we loved the stops at the small islands including Patmos, Santorini and Crete. We also stopped for a morning at the city of Kusadasi in Turkey and experienced the true Turkish shopping. Some of us went to Ephesus to see the ancient ruins of this ancient city. That was amazing! Billy Hyde has his 18th birthday on the cruise and we all dressed up fancy for dinner on the ship – he even got two birthday cakes! We spent another day and night in Ath-

Begin your garden at Seedy Saturday, May 4 Cody Slinn Special to The Tribune As the days once again get longer and warmer, my thoughts turn to my garden, and all the tantalizing possibilities of what I should plant this year. If you’re like me, itching to get a start on your garden, then Williams Lake’s fifth annual Seedy Saturday event is the place to be Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Cariboo Growers Community Corner mall at the corner of Third Avenue and Oliver Street. You can come to buy your seeds and seedlings, get advice from gardeners or to enjoy the birthday celebration as well as the many informational booths, food vendors, music

and free kids activitiesincluding seed planting. Although the first Seedy Saturday in Williams Lake took place in 2009, Seedy Saturdays in B.C. have a slightly longer history. The first Seedy Saturday event in B.C. took place in 1990 in Vancouver. It was created by Sharon Rempel, an agronomist who had been working on a project in the southern Okanagan. Sharon had been attempting to source heritage seeds to plant in the garden of the historic Keremeos Grist Mill. When she discovered that her choices for Canadian-sourced seed were extremely limited, she decided it was time to start the momentum of saving seeds in B.C.

She organized a Seedy Saturday event at the VanDusen garden in Vancouver that spring, and the rest is history. The event is a joint collaboration of the Williams Lake Food Policy Council, the Community Corners partnership, and local producers. This April marks the third anniversary of the Community Corners Partnership and the Cariboo Growers Co-op. For more information contact Erica Nitchie (purple_toaster@hotmail.com), or Cody Slinn (foodpolicycouncil@hotmail.com). Cody Slinn is the food action co-ordinator for the Williams Lake Food Policy Council, a notfor-profit organization concerned with foodsecurity in the Cariboo.

Catholic Women’s League convention held in lakecity Mary Jacques Special to The Tribune A number of dignitaries attended the 66th annual Catholic Women’s League Kamloops Diocesan convention at Sacred Heart Church in Williams Lake, April 12 to 14. Guests were national president from Ontario Betty Ann Brown Davidson, provincial president Doreen Gowan along with Mayor Kerry Cook, and Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. A wine and cheese was hosted by the Knights of

Columbus. Saturday, resolutions were passed at the diocesan level to be presented to the national level where they are then taken to government. A presentation was given on Mater Care regarding obstetrics for mothers in Isiolo, Kenya. Saturday a banquet was held at the Gibraltar Room. Dignitaries were piped in by Angus Morrison. Dinner was catered by TRUE Food Service. Bishop David Monroe celebrated his birthday with a large cake from

the CWL. Cariboo Men’s Choir entertained the crowd with several songs. The evening wrapped up with a hilarious fashion show. Sunday continued with business and election of new diocesan executives. The women were given a bit of insight from Betty Anne Brown Davidson as she was asked to attend Pope Francis’ inauguration with the governor general of Canada and other dignitaries. The convention was closed with the installation of new officers.
