B.C. Premier Christy Clark’s campaign bus rolled through Cranbrook and Kimberley yesterday, Tuesday, April 30. With an entourage of dozens of staff, reporters and security officers, the Premier made three stops while in the East Kootenay.

First, starting at noon, she toured Fab Rite Services in Cranbrook to see the steel fabrication business in action. Premier Clark met Kootenay East MLA candidate Bill Bennett for the tour, where she talked to machinists who crafted a steel plate for her reading “B.C. strong economy”. After seeing Fab Rite in full

swing, Premier Clark held a media conference where she talked about the B.C. Liberals’ job plan and how it has contributed to a strong economy. “A strong economy needs strong leadership, and strong leadership means saying yes to economic opportunities. It means helping companies like this one succeed by holding

the line on taxes, by cutting red tape. It means a jobs plan that drives growth in the resource industries, in mining, forestry and natural gas, that the people in these communities in the Kootenays depend on so much for their livelihood,” said Premier Clark.

Food Banks prepare for Hunger Awareness Week in Canada TOWNSMAN STAFF

Cranbrook and Kimberley food banks are preparing for a food drive on May 6. Next week is Hunger Awareness Week in Canada, and so the food banks are hoping to promote solu-

tions to the problem of hunger. According to the food banks, there are some 900,000 individuals who turn to food banks for support each month in Canada. It also said that of those individuals, 38 per cent

are children and youth. Food Banks Canada is asking people to “give it up for hunger”, which challenges Canadians to give up lunches or a food staple for the week. Jackie Jensen from the

Cranbrook Food Bank said this is a way for everyone to contribute and feel connected to the cause of hunger.

Cranbrook is once again looking into changing the current leisure services fee structure. At the moment, residents of Cranbrook pay a discounted price, while all non-residents pay the full price to use the leisure centre. At last week’s regular meeting, Council was presented with five options put together by city staff. The options ranged from everything staying the same to scrapping the twotiered system in favour of funding support from the Regional District of East Kootenay. The city estimates it collects somewhere between $32,000 and $50,000 from non-residents. Eliminating the two-

tiered system would also cause the city to potentially lose those funds, and so a deal with the regional district could balance that out. In the options, staff also suggests broadening the scope of what services RDEK residents would be paying into, comparing it to the fire services or library agreements. Mayor Wayne Stetski right away made a motion to move ahead with option five, which is to enter into discussions with the RDEK. Coun. Angus Davis agreed with the mayor, saying that he’d gone through the options the day before and supported number five as well.

Boaters rescued by U.S. border agents ANGEL A TREHARNE Fernie Free Press

Three boaters were rescued from Lake Koocanusa last week after their boat broke down. The trio were rescued Friday by U.S. Border Patrol, Customs and Border Protection agents, who found them on a remote part of the lake. They were reportedly tired and cold, but safe and sound. Their small boat had broken down several kilometres from their

original launching point. Customs officials say that all three Canadian citizens were suffering from exposure because of the bad weather and exhaustion. Agents patrolling the lake spotted the trio and coordinated the rescue using “specialized riverine patrol watercraft,” according to a news release. The boat was eventually towed safely to the Rexford, Montana boat launch.

COMMUNITY SNAPSHOT

McWhinnie Day a big success Any age, any skill — freestylers enjoy the park that Bob built all photos by Kaity Brown

$800 raised C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

Another successful McWhinnie Day event was held at the Kimberley Skate Park on Sunday, and according two organizer Alex Buterman, it was the biggest yet. It raised more money than

ever before — $800. It had more riders for the jam than ever before — 70. And it had the same good feelings as the previous celebrations as the community celebrated Bob McWhinnie’s vision of the skate park. “We raised over $800,” Buterman said. “There were tons of bake sale donations. It

was really terrific support.” Funds from previous Bob McWhinnie Days had helped to build the new washrooms at the park and Buterman said they were a hit, as was the outdoor water fountain. He said these funds may go to put in fencing along the back of the park near Mark Creek, as the water can run

fairly quickly in that area during the spring freshet. Buterman thanks everyone for the support and keeping freestyle alive and well in Kimberley. “Let’s concentrate our energy on more community initiatives and events to make Kimberley a happy and healthy place to live and visit.”

Clark makes whistle stop in Cranbrook and Kimberley Continued from page 1 “Because we’ve controlled spending and we are growing this economy, we are making sure that major investments in East Kootenay Regional Hospital are possible, including a brand new intensive care unit. That’s how we can prepare for other important investments that this community and Bill have been fighting passionately for, (such as) replacing Mount Baker high school, or the Salvation Army homeless shelter.” When asked how the B.C. Liberals government will help solve the skilled workers shortage in the East Kootenay and the bleed of young professionals to urban centres, Premier Clark gave a straightforward answer. “We need to keep investing in the College of the Rockies,” she said. “We want to make sure that not only are our young people able to be first in line for jobs here in British Columbia, but we want them to find the training they need in the region in which they live and then find a job in the region in which they live if that’s what they choose. Because we do know that if people leave a community, they often don’t come back. And I don’t think people want to leave in the first place. Anybody who’s born and raised in the Kootenays wouldn’t leave if they had a choice. “We’ve been very clear and focused on making sure we are investing in post secondary education on a regional level and then making sure we are trying to match the education we provide with the jobs we believe are going to be created in the local community. So mining, forestry, and those specific trades related jobs are hugely important for people here.”

After touring Fab Rite, Premier Clark got back into her campaign bus and headed to Kimberley at 2 p.m. In Kimberley, Premier Clark dropped into a number of Platzl businesses. She made a coffee stop at the Snowdrift Cafe, checked out the under-construction climbing wall, and visited La Lune de Chocolate. She was met in Kimberley by B.C. Liberal candidate Doug Clovechok. Clovechok’s campaign manager Todd Mitchell said he felt the B.C. Liberal campaign was gaining momentum in Columbia River Revelstoke. Clovechok himself promised to jump the splash pond at Spring Splash next year if he wins the MLA’s seat. Finally, Clark returned to Cranbrook at 5 p.m. for a political rally at the Heritage Inn. Around 200 people gathered in a ball room at the hotel to hear the premier speak about the B.C. Liberals campaign and endorse Bill Bennett and Doug Clovechok as MLA candidates. Premier Clark called Bennett “one of the most iconoclastic and independent minded MLAs in British Columbia”. “That’s what you deserve – an MLA who will speak his mind passionately on behalf of his communities,” she said. “We know what built the Kootenays – ‘yes’. As today’s B.C. Liberals, we believe in finding ways to build the economy.” With files from Carolyn Grant, Kimberley Daily Bulletin

City ponders scrapping two-tiered fee structure Continued from page 1 Coun. Bob Whetham said the city has faced this situation a number of times and found the requests for participation in capital expenditures have not been successful. “But the reality is we have ongoing operational costs,” Whetham said, adding that Cranbrook taxpayers are not

only paying the user fee each time they go to the pool, but also are paying through taxes. “I think it’s only reasonable that we go out to the regional district with that kind of mission and look for a working relationship that covers all of our recreational activities.” Coun. Sharon Cross

circled number five as well after looking through the options. “I think this approach of engaging and having some dialogue with our neighbours and friends will go a long way in perhaps remedying some past resentments around this issue,” Cross said. Coun. Diana Scott said she was pleasantly surprised to hear num-

ber five was the one other councillors were agreeing on. “I think that is the way to go,” Scott said. “I think we need to talk with our neighbours and exhaust all the possibilities of how we can work together on this and do our negotiations that way. It’s a give and take.” Scott said the city has a good relationship

Clean Bin challenge ready to launch Submit ted

Wildsight’s Cranbrook Clean Bin Challenge launched in April with a screening of the film, “The Clean Bin Project”. The movie is about a Vancouver couple who challenged themselves to live waste-free for a year – they did and then made a film about it. Now it is Cranbrook’s turn to try and reduce the amount they send to the landfill. “A lot of viewers (of the film) seem to be inspired and motivated to take the challenge themselves to see what changes they

can make to help clean out their bins – we even have an eightyear-old who has challenged her mom to go head-to-head,” said the co-ordinator of the project, Skye McDougall. McDougall said that the competition will be a friendly forum for learning and sharing strategies and ideas with each other to become waste free. She is also a participant, and is taking a serious look at what comes into her home in the first place. “It’s going to be great to be able to share the experience with

other Clean Bin Challengers,” said McDougall. “We’ll be keeping in touch to share hints and support each other throughout the month-long challenge.” The Cranbrook Clean Bin Challenge runs from May 15 until June 15. Anyone interested in registering, please visit www.wildsight.ca/cleanbin to sign up and receive more information. There is a Challenge Launch on Friday, May 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Studio Stage Door.

with the RDEK. “What we tried in the past hasn’t worked. Sometimes it has come close, but I think number five is definitely the way to go,” she said. Coun. Denise Pallesen wasn’t as optimistic. “I don’t have a problem talking to the regional district, but I think we have to remember that the last few words in number one say ‘may be deemed fairer by our residents,’” Pallesen said. “I don’t think it’s ever going to be a winwin unless we get some input and some dollars from the regional district.” Mayor Stetski said the problem with moving away from the twotiered system is the city would need to make up

the lost funding through the RDEK. He said the district thought ratepayers would be much more interested in paying into the services near that level than the amounts of past requests from the city, the last of which was over $1 million. “We’ll come up, hopefully, with a program that works for everyone and no longer have a two-tiered system,” Stetski said. Coun. Scott added that she thought most people want the twotiered system gone. She said that number five takes a different approach than in past years and so may have different results. If it doesn’t then they still have the other four options.

Warner said he agreed on five as well. Option one would keep the status quo. Option two would eliminate the two-tiered system and charge the resident fee, but staff cautions that this may end up causing residents to have to pay higher rates. Option three would keep a twotiered system, but only charge the higher rate to non-residents who use the facilities frequently; other non-residents would pay the resident fee. Option four would provide the resident discount to all users for a one-year trial, allowing for the city to measure if the new users would offset the lost revenues from eliminating the fee. Council moved forward on option five.

Chemical fantasies, grim realities

F

irst of all, dismiss all those news stories saying that the Assad regime has started using chemical weapons against its own citizens, and that this has crossed a “red line” and will trigger foreign military intervention in Syria. It is conceivable, though highly unlikely, that Assad’s troops have used poison gas against the rebels. It is not credible that any foreign leader is going to order his troops to go into Syria and stop the war. The “evidence” for the Assad regime’s use of sarin (nerve gas) is flimsy, and it’s easy to see why the opposition fighters might choose to fabricate it. Equally flimsy evidence about alleged “weapons of mass destruction” was used to justify the American invasion of Iraq. Why wouldn’t the Syrian rebels have a go at the same game? Moreover, there is no plausible reason why the Syrian regime would use poison gas. It would confer no lasting military advantage on the government forces, and the political costs of being caught doing it would be significant. But even if the accusations were true, it would make no real difference. No Western government — nor any Arab government, either — is willing to put soldiers on the ground in Syria. Meddling in a civil war is rarely a good idea, and the Baathist regime’s army could inflict very serious losses on an invader. Even imposing a no-fly zone would mean Western pilots dead or downed, because Syria’s air defences are modern, competent and ex-

tensive. So if there is not going to be any foreign military intervention, when is the Syrian civil war going to end? Not any time soon. From time to time the rebels overrun an air base here or a frontier post there. This is usually reported as proof that they are making progress, but half the time they lose their conquests back to the regime some weeks or months later. The front lines have scarcely shifted at all in Aleppo in the past six Gwynne months, and the regime is even recapturing some of Dyer the Damascus suburbs that fell to the rebels last year. The Syrian army lacks the numbers to hold down large tracts of countryside permanently, but it has never let the rebels close the main north-south freeway that links Damascus, Homs, Hama and Aleppo. Assad’s divisions even re-opened the highway linking Damascus to Tartus and Latakia on the coast recently, after many months of closure. If they are not actually winning the war on the ground, they are certainly not losing it. Saudi Arabia and Qatar continue to feed weapons to the rebels, but not in quantities that would give them a chance of winning. This is probably because they have become increasingly nervous about the kind of regime that would replace Assad’s dictatorship after a military victory. They wanted to replace Assad’s secular regime with a government controlled by Sunni Muslims, but they do not want to put a fanatical Islamist regime in power.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

That, at the moment, is precisely what an insurgent victory would produce, for the jihadi extremists of the al-Nusra brigades are by far the most effective fighters on the rebel side. The prospect of a radical Islamist regime has also convinced many moderate Syrians that they must prevent the fall of the Assad regime, even though they loathe it. A year ago, the battle for Syria seemed to be turning into a straightforward struggle between the Sunni Muslim majority, some 70 per cent of the population, and the various minorities, Shia, Christian, Alawite and Druze, who backed the Assad regime because they feared Sunni domination. It’s probably more like 50-50 now, because many Sunni Muslims are equally repelled by the alternative of a radical Islamist tyranny. There are no opinion polls to confirm this shift in Sunni opinion, but the evidence is there in the loyalty and the combat effectiveness of the Syrian army, most of whose rank-and-file troops are Sunni Muslims. So what should we hope for, in this almost hopeless situation? The least bad outcome, at this stage, would be a stealthy military take-over of the regime that discreetly removed Assad and his cronies without abandoning the principles of the secular state, and then isolated the jihadis by reaching a generous peace settlement with the other elements of the rebel forces. How likely is that? Not very, unfortunately. Gwynne Dyer is an international journalist based in London.

Oil Kings defeat Hitmen, head into WHL final C ANADIAN PRESS

TREVOR CRAWLEY PHOTO

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT: Coach Rich Wilson supervises a drill during novice lacrosse practice at Western Financial Place on Tuesday. Cranbrook Minor Lacrosse, known as the Outlaws, opened their season in various cities in the Southern Alberta Lacrosse Association. The Midgets and the Novices split their records with a win and a loss, the Pee Wees had a loss and a tie, while the Bantams had a bye.

Ice gearing up for bantam draft TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The WHL Bantam Draft is coming up on Friday, and the Kootenay Ice will be looking to their future. Scouts from across the league gather in Calgary on Thursday for the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft, and Ice head scout Garnet Kazuik will be there to make the calls. The Ice have picks in every round but the eighth—sent to the TriCity Americans for their spot in the CHL Import Draft last year—and also have four selections in the fifth round, which have accumulated in various deals over the last two seasons. Kazuik, who spends his winter and spring months traversing Western Canada to identify up and coming bantam talent, said this year’s draft class has a higher profile than others in the past because of the influence of social media. “The top players—the top layer—is very good, just like in most drafts,” said Kazuik. “The top group is good, but that takes away nothing from the guys in the middle of the first round either. They’re very good players and more often than not, some of those players turn out to be just as good as the top guys anyways.” Kootenay selects

ninth overall in the first round, but the Vancouver Giants start the show with the first pick after a poor season that finished with them in the WHL basement. “Where we’re picking, we should definitely get a good player, and hopefully it’s an impact player, and we’re just looking for the best fit for the Kootenay Ice that fits into the framework of our team,” continued Kazuik, “that fits well with our dressing room and our coaching staff.” Kootenay gets picks in the second and third round, and takes the fourth round selection of the Swift Current Broncos, which belonged to the Saskatoon Blades via a trade for Erik Benoit at the deadline in January. The Ice then get a whopping four selections in the fifth round. Along with Kootenay’s own spot, the Ice picked up fifth round picks in trades that sent Elgin Pearce to the Medicine Hat Tigers, Mike Simpson to the Lethbridge Hurricanes and John Neibrandt to the Vancouver Giants. “I think it’s going to be very valuable, because you can definitely find players in the fifth round that can play,” said Kazuik. He referenced Kootenay Ice alumnus Nigel Dawes, the sniper who

won a Memorial Cup with the team and a gold medal at the World Junior Championship. Dawes was drafted 73rd overall in the fifth round of the 2000 WHL Bantam Draft.

“If you can find some players that can play, it’s definitely going to help our depth in that age group for sure,” added Kazuik. “And that’s where the important part is—the depth that those fifth round picks can fill.”

While the draft is meant to build for the future, the picks are also important bargaining chips for trades. The Ice scooped up Jordyn Boyd from the Everett Silvertips on draft day last year, giving up a fifth round selection in return. Ice general manager Jeff Chynoweth said he is looking to draft 10 to 11 players, but he is also waiting to see what happens in terms of who wants to buy and sell when the process gets underway. “We’re going to look at all options and we’re going to see what everybody is going to do,” said Chynoweth. “If we can make our team better, we will, but it’s tough to make trades for veteran

players with draft picks… you can do it, but you have to have a dance partner. “…We’re excited about the nucleus of our team that’s coming back next year, we have lots of potential. We got some holes to fill, just like every other team does and we’ll address that starting Thursday as well as the rest of the summer and into the start of the season.” WHL NOTES: The Portland Winterhawks won’t be able to make any selections in the draft until the seventh round, due to disciplinary sanctions from the WHL stemming from an investigation into alleged player benefit violations.

WHL to hand out league awards TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The WHL hands out year-end awards in Calgary on Wednesday, and Kooteany Ice bench boss Ryan McGill is the Eastern Conference nominee for the Dunc McCallum trophy as coach of the year. After a shaky start to the season, the Ice reversed their fortunes in the second half of the year and catapulted into the playoffs for their 15th consecutive appearance.

McGill is facing off against Ryan Huska, the Western Conference nominee who coached the Kelowna Rockets to a record-breaking season in the B.C. Division. The Rockets set a club record for most wins, wracking up 52 victories, along with another franchise record of 23 consecutive wins on home ice. Former Kootenay Ice coach Cory Clouston won the award twice in 2005 and 2007, while his successor, Mark

Holick, picked up the same hardware in 2010. “If Ryan McGill is fortunate enough to win, that’d be four coaches in nine years, and that’d be something I’m very proud of,” said Ice general ma nag e r Je f f Chynoweth. “Having said that, Ryan Huska has done a great job with the Kelowna Rockets, not only this year, but throughout his career there, and they had a 52-win season, so it’ll be tough.”

EDMONTON - Laurent Brossoit made 26 saves and his fifth shutout of the playoffs as the Edmonton Oil Kings defeated the Calgary Hitmen 2-0 on Tuesday in Game 7 the Western Hockey League’s Eastern Conference final. Brossoit now ranks second all-time in WHL single-season playoff shutouts. Only Dustin Slade of the 2006 Vancouver Giants has recorded more, with six shutouts en route to the championship that season.

Michael St. Croix had both Oil King goals as Edmonton advanced to the WHL final to play the Portland Winterhawks for the Ed Chynoweth Cup for the second year in a row. The defending champion Oil Kings were pushed to a seven-game series in last year’s showdown, but held home ice advantage: something they won’t possess in this year’s final.

Chris Driedger stopped 36 shots in net for the Hitmen. Calgary nearly scored first just five minutes into the game off Jaynen Rissling’s slap pass down low for Jake Virtanen, who deflected it just overtop the net. St. Croix opened up scoring for the Oil Kings on the transition, finishing off a two-on-one with Stephane Legault around lone defender Rissling at 14:05 of the first period. Legault came within inches of putting Edmonton up 2-0 at 15:55 of the first, deflecting a feed from the left wing just off the post and back out into play. St. Croix doubled Edmonton’s lead at 4:33 of the second period. After two Calgary blocks in front, St. Croix jumped on the loose puck to whip it behind Driedger to make it 2-0 Edmonton after two periods. Edmonton was content to shut the game down for a scoreless third period to earn a berth to the finals. Neither team capitalized on the power play, with both squads earning four chances on the man advantage.

Tebow clears waivers and is now free agent DENNIS WASZ AK JR. Associated Press

NEW YORK - Tim Tebow is free to sign with any NFL team that might want him. The popular but polarizing quarterback cleared waivers Tuesday, a day after being let go by the Jets following an embarrassingly unsuccessful year in New York. Tebow is now a free agent, but his NFL future is uncertain. It was expected he would clear waivers since a team would have had to pick up the remainder of Tebow’s contract, about $1.9 million over the next two seasons. The Jets must still pay the Broncos, from whom they acquired

Tebow in March 2012, $1.53 million as a result of their trade agreement. It’s unclear if any NFL team will give Tebow an opportunity for next season. His inaccurate passing, in addition to the relentless media attention he draws, makes for a tricky mix. The Omaha Beef, an indoor football team, have offered him to play for them, as have the Orlando Predators of the Arena League. The Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League hold his rights, but general manager Jim Popp said he could come compete for a job - as a backup.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Recently, my wife and I stayed for four days at the home of one of her school chums. The gals yakked until late at night, so I was the first one up every morning. I’m an early riser anyway. I like reading the newspaper with my breakfast, so when I’d get up, I’d go outside and pick up the paper and bring it in. My wife says it was wrong to get the paper before our hostess. Anyway, after a couple of days, the school friend seemed in a snit about something, and my wife says that was the reason, even though she never said so when I asked whether something was bothering her. Recently, we were invited to stay with different friends for a weekend, and I am getting no end of hassle from my wife to make sure I wait for our hosts to finish with the paper. I figure I’ll just go out for coffee somewhere and buy a paper. My wife says it would be rude to take off at breakfast. Is this idiotic or what? -- California Dear California: It would be rude to read the paper in such a way that your hosts must wait for you to finish, or that you drag sections of it all over the house and fill in all the clues to the crossword puzzle. But there is nothing wrong with reading the paper early, putting it back together nicely and having it available to your hosts when they awaken. You can resolve this simply enough. When you arrive, inform your hosts that you are an early riser, and ask whether they would mind if you fetch their paper and read it with your coffee, promising to keep it in pristine condition for when they are ready to read it. You also could offer to go to the local coffee shop and bring back coffee and muffins (and a newspaper) for everyone else. Dear Annie: I need to vent. My daughter, my 8-year-old granddaughter and I recently went to a Broadway show. After we were seated, a woman, her young daughter and her mother sat next to us. The woman was rather large, but instead of taking the aisle seat, she gave that to her mother and sat next to me. She was practically sitting on top of the chair arms due to her size and was taking up part of my space. At the end of the show, she told us we would need to climb over her because her knees hurt and she couldn’t move yet. I’m sure her knee problems are due to her size. This woman looked to be in her mid-30s. At this rate, she might not live long enough to see her daughter reach adulthood. Don’t you think she should have taken the aisle seat? -- Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat

Dear Loved: It seems logical that the person with the most difficulty moving would prefer the aisle seat, but perhaps the woman’s mother insisted on taking it. When stuck in these situations, there isn’t much you can do other than show tolerance for two hours.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

I’m 48 now, and broccoli is one of my favorite foods. However, I can no longer tolerate sweet tea. I think texture is often the issue, as it was for me. When I had kids, I never forced them to eat what I fixed. I gave them the option of making themselves a peanut butter sandwich if they did not want to eat my meals, but I also did not prepare a separate dish for them. -- Memphis Mama Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
