PATIO COVERS & CARPORTS

Informational delegations highlight council meeting By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Delegations topped the agenda at the April 15 regular meeting of Keremeos Village Council. Corporal Mike Gallagher, Keremeos RCMP Detachment Commander appeared before council along with Terri Kalaski, South Okanagan - Similkameen RCMP Administrator to make a power point presentation of the RCMP’s Annual Performance Plan. The APP is a system that allows the RCMP to adjust its services to various municipalities’ priorities, allowing for more support in certain specific areas, such as crime reduction, community and integrated policing. The APP spells out national and regional priorities, outlining issues and objectives of RCMP services. Locally, traffic, youth, serious and organized crime and Aboriginal communities are noted as areas where RCMP attention will have special focus. Kalaski noted, during questions taken following the presentation, that the Restorative Justice Program in Keremeos remains stalled due to lack of volunteer interest. She urged community participation in the valuable program, describing the amount of volunteer hours annually as being “perhaps 20 hours per year.” Corporal Gallagher also gave council a summary of police activity during the last quarter of 2012. Crime in the fourth quarter was

down over 2011, but call volumes over the whole year, when compared to 2011, were up by eight per cent. Gallagher informed council that a new officer was on duty in the Keremeos detachment, and had also been residing in the community for the past month. Corporal Martin Trudeau will be taking over duties at the Keremeos detachment for the summer, as Gallagher has been temporarily transferred to Princeton, a posting expected to last the summer. Sarah Trudeau, and Aaron McRann spoke to council about the Community Foundation of the Okanagan. Trudeau is the recently hired Regional Coordinator for the charitable organization, which provides a wide variety of grants to eligible projects in the region. The foundation is seeking to build community funds on a more regional basis, hoping to assist existing organizations already established, or by creating a local option for residents to donate back to their community. A Lower Similkameen working committee has been established, and Community Futures recently became part of an initiative to build “smart and caring communities.” The foundation requested council to help spread the word and consider a partnership with the organization. Chris Mathieson, new manager at the Grist Mill, spoke to council about his restoration and operating plans for upcoming season. “I’m focussed on full restoration of the mill,” he told council, not-

ing that he had received additional funding this year to re-establish mill operation. Mathieson also promised to improve the property’s “curb appeal” noting that the site wasn’t as attractive as it had been in past years. “I’m committed to engaging in meaningful dialogue regarding the use of the property,” he concluded, “there are so many neat opportunities. I just want whatever I’m doing to benefit the village and the local area.” Portage Keremeos presented a letter to council requesting permission to walk through the village to bring awareness to the mental health of youth during Mental Health Awareness Week, Youth Mental Health, May 6 -12.Council granted Portage permission to use Memorial Park on May 12 as the starting and end point for a walk down Seventh Avenue. Fortis BC sent a letter to council informing them of their decision to proceed with the Kingsvale - Oliver natural gas pipeline at a reduced pace, “due to current commercial considerations”. Staff provided council with a review of bylaw enforcement number for the first quarter of 2013, as well as a first quarter report on building inspection services. Council gave the five year financial plan first, second and third readings, concluding council’s business for the evening.

Annual General Meeting

Contributed by Judy Chisholm The two day art show at the Gibson House was just abuzz with talk and laughter with approximately 80 people enjoying the art on display. This non-juried (unjudged) show was hosted by Judy Chisholm to show the community all the fantastic talent we have in this small area. We filled the house with art from Hedley, Keremeos, Olalla and Cawston only. Works were displayed by artists who are already established and are internationally acclaimed, and every stage to the artist who was showing for the first time. This show was an opportunity for the new artist to learn the fundamentals of preparing for and following through with showing their creation to the public. This less intimidating forum can be a stepping stone to moving on and showing at more formal Photo contributed locations. Four paintings were sold with the most sales coming from the greeting cards with replicas of original art.

Rural agency stores receive discount Ministry of Energy, Mines and Natural Gas / Liquor Distribution Branch press release Minister Rich Coleman announced changes in April that will help support rural agency stores, while continuing to build on recent revisions to the current liquor laws in British Columbia. Building on a commitment to help rural agency stores succeed, the province has worked with the Rural Agency Store Advisory Society (RASAS) to negotiate a discount on their liquor purchases. Effective April 28, 2013, rural agency stores will enjoy a 12 per cent discount on liquor purchased from the Liquor Distribution Branch. The previous discount was 10 per cent. This change is another step towards ensuring rural agency stores continue to serve British Columbians throughout the province and remain successful moving forward. Rural agency stores allow the sale of alcohol in communities and major tourist destination resorts in B.C.

too small to warrant a full-service liquor outlet. The criteria for establishing a rural agency store in a tourist destination resort are: - The proposed location is a minimum of 10 kilometres driving distance from the nearest existing liquor store. - A rural agency store will not be authorized within city limits or within the municipal boundaries of an urban community. - The resort is too small to warrant the establishment of a full service liquor store. - The resort must have substantial accommodation for tourists. - There is a suitable business to accommodate a rural agency store such as an independently owned full service general grocery store, which has been in business for at least one year, whose business is not associated in any manner with a chain store operation. - The community must support the establishment of a rural agency store.

Owl rehab centre holding open house South Okanagan Rehabilitation Centre for Owls celebrates 26 years of operation this weekend Contributed We are pleased to announce the annual Open House for the South Okanagan Rehabilitation Centre for Owls. The event will take place on Sunday May 5, 2013 from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. -Celebrate “Houdini’s” birthday - Come and meet the birds - Silent Auction - See the progress on our new state of the art clinic - Tour the SORCO and Burrowing Owl facility with informative volunteers - Kid’s corner - Local environmental displays and information - BBQ by donation - Admission by donation SORCO’s mission is to support conservation of birds of prey through rehabilitation and a focused promotional and education

program which generates public interest and support for the preservation of this vital part of our natural inheritance. The SORCO facility is enjoying its 26th year in operation and the contribution that SORCO has and will continue to do for the area communities is a vital part of sustaining the area’s ecosystem, natural environment and ensure the healthy retention of a sustainable Raptor population. SORCO is the only such facility in the Central and South Okanagan and many raptors would suffer and die if it was not for this facility. Wildlife populations continue to compete with the encroachment of development and the work of SORCO provides a fundamental element in the conservation of these unique species. We are very excited to also announce that our new state of the art clinic will be 50 per cent completed at the time of the open house. We are expecting to have the facility up and running by the fall of 2013. If you would like more information about this topic, please contact Lauren Meads at 250-498-4251 or email at sorco@ telus.net.

School District No. 53 Okanagan Similkameen monthly board report Submitted by Marieze Tarr, Chairperson

We have many exciting events happening in our district in the next two months. Before I share these with you I would like to apologize to Zac Beaudoin (Osoyoos Secondary School) who I failed to mention in last month’s report. Zac also participated in the Skills Canada Contest in Kelowna last month and received a bronze medal in cabinetmaking. Congratulations Zac! Ten of our students competed in the Skills Canada Provincial Event in Abbotsford this week; two gravity car teams; one from SOSS and one from SESS and Trent Phillips (SOSS) in mechanical drafting. We are eagerly awaiting the results. This year has been a very successful year for our Career Prep programs. We have met all of our goals for the $20,000 ITA grant received, by registering 13 SSA students and holding the Yes2IT program for our grades 6 and 7 students. On May 8 our Learning Forum will focus on “Inquiry Time”. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the Atrium at SOSS in Oliver. Bev Young (SD53 superintendent) will present on the vision for building a culture of inquiry in our district. Some of our teachers and administrators will also present examples of inquiry and on how they have, or might use the inquiry process in their schools. There will be time for questions and feedback from our partner groups. Please be sure to attend if you have any more questions or concerns. The board will debate the introduction of inquiry time at the regular board meeting, May 22. Please be assured that we will consider all feedback and concerns from all of our partner groups before making a decision. On May 13 the district will host a facilitated stakeholder session from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the Watermark Hotel in Osoyoos to shape an inclusive vision for the future of SD53. The intent of this session is to provide input and perspective of all district stakeholders - teaching and non-teaching personnel, students, community leaders and families, on our future. Each school and site in our district will be represented and we are hoping that through engaging conversations around learning and celebrating our past and current successes we will articulate our inspired and inclusive vision for the future that builds on our very best. I am urging all of our stakeholders to please get involved

in their local school visioning sessions as this is crucial in building a vision for the future of our school district and our students. We are hoping that this process will create a sense of belonging for the school district and will remind us of the importance of working together as we work towards our vision. The outcome of the visioning exercise will also inform resource allocation, the budget process and the district’s achievement contract. The district held a very successful pow wow at SESS on April 5 and 6. This was our sixth annual pow wow and approximately 800 of our students participated in the event on the Friday. I would like to thank Helen Gallagher and her Aboriginal education team for all of their hard work to make this event possible. The district is very excited about the Neighbourhoods of Learning complex nearing completion. We are setting up meetings with some of our future tenants to prepare for the opening of this facility in September. It is wonderful to think that we will have a new SOSS and this wonderful facility in the fall. At our regular board meeting held on April 17 district staff reported that for the 2013/2014 budget there will be a projected decrease in revenue of $331,000 due to a decrease in enrollment. The board passed the Annual Facility Grant funding bylaw for 2013/2014; AFG funding will remain the same as last year. This funding is for maintenance and repairs to schools. The board also passed the 2013/2014 Carbon Neutral Capital Program bylaw. We submitted three projects to the Ministry of Education’s capital program and only one was approved. We received funding for the replacement of hot water heaters at Okanagan Falls Elementary School. The board also ap-

proved policy F-14 Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. We revised some of the wording after receiving input from our partner groups. Policy A-6, which deals with Board Committee Structure, is now on our website awaiting input from partner groups. Should you have any questions, please contact: me at 250-498-1333.

Editorial Political parties interfere with democratic process Former Boundary - Similkameen Conservative candidate Mischa Popoff felt the heavy hand of party politics last week when the B.C. Conservative party ousted him from the riding for comments made as a columnist regarding single mothers. Popoff joins the ranks of Dayleen Van Ryswyk in Kelowna and Ian Tootil in Vancouver, both of whom were dumped by their respective parties for comments percieved to be controversial, unflattering, or otherwise. It seems to us that in politics today, the political parties themselves are the first roadblocks to our democratic right to free speech in their attempt to impress upon the public a sterile, lily-white, politically correct image of their candidates. The British Columbia electorate should take the provinces’ political parties to task for attempting to create false images of their candidates by giving the hook to those expressing legitimate free thought. The electorate has a right to hear reasonable discussion on topics and issues from their candidates, even if that candidate may express a minority or controversial view - especially if a candidate makes it past the party’s vetting process. The party’s perception of what is unsavoury comment is meaningless to the electorate, who should be deciding on the viability of the candidate from their point of view. In a sense, they are taking away the voter’s right to choose, because a muzzled candidate is not truly representative of what he or she is truly about. Continuing along this path of censorship, the colourful political personalites of the past will soon be a distant memory. Our candidates will increasingly become good news lip syncers of party policy, the most successful of whom will likely have little to contribute in the way of free or innovative thinking. A candidates’ point of view should be known, open and real to the voting public. They - not politcial party strategists - are the only ones who have the right to decide if the candidate’s point of view has validity, and they’ll do that with their ballot.

NDP plan is to borrow and spend By Tom Fletcher Black Press NDP leader Adrian Dix has finally rolled out his “fully costed” election platform. Major policy announcements had been released previously, but there was plenty more spending added to the total. The NDP’s health care plan is surprisingly modest – more money for home support, residential senior care, mental health and addiction services and a rural acute care initiative totaling $159 million over three years. As health critic Mike Farnworth points out, the residential care increase will allow seniors two baths a week instead of one. Full marks to the NDP for this part of the platform. Increases to Community Living B.C., children and families programs and aboriginal friendship centres are also commendable. Other NDP proposals don’t inspire as much

confidence. Raise welfare rates $20 a month and index them to inflation. Index the minimum wage to inflation too, at a time when inflation can only rise. Set up a new child bonus program to send $70 per month for each child with family income under $25,000. Lesser payments would go to families with income up to $66,000. This ’70s-style family allowance scheme is based on a “child poverty” claim that misrepresents federal statistics of relative income distribution. The program is optimistically budgeted at $210 million a year. Dix insists it isn’t a “big new social program,” which makes me wonder what would qualify. It would be partly funded by cancelling a B.C. Liberal plan to establish education savings accounts for kids born after 2006. Out with self-reliance, in with the nanny state. Another $100 million is added to hire more teachers, to address the teachers’

union’s often-repeated but false claim of “a decade of cuts” in education. Another $100 million goes to student grants, much of it further subsidizing the oversupply of English, education, sociology, women’s studies, journalism and other university grads who eventually discover there is little demand for their degrees. As with welfare, increasing support for bad choices can only yield more bad choices. On a related note, the NDP will revive a ministry of women’s equality, “to promote social and economic equality to all government programs....” As with female candidate quotas, the NDP keeps the flame of ’70s socialist feminism alive. The party totals up its new program spending to $988 million over three years. That’s exactly the amount Dix estimates will be raised by tax hikes on corporate income, bank capital, personal income over $150,000, carbon tax on oil and gas drilling, and

cancelling the B.C. Liberals’ RESP and child tax credit plans. As for deficits, the NDP claims that the B.C. Liberal budget hides a deficit of $800 million this year and similar deficits in the next two years. The B.C. Liberals point to an impressive string of “net zero” wage settlements with public sector unions, the core of their spending control record. Would the NDP continue to hold the line on public service wages, as the B.C. Liberals have done? Dix’s NDP caucus and staff is stocked with former government union officials. Party president Moe Sihota is essentially a direct employee of the same unions. The B.C. Federation of Labour has shaped the NDP’s Labour Code changes, which we won’t see until after the May 14 vote. And how much money does the “fully costed” NDP plan set aside to pay wage increases for its government union brothers and sisters? Zero.

We need to say no to increasing public spending To the Editor: Reading about how our “Carbon Tax” (Gas Tax) ($250,000) is being doled out has really got me steamed up, I find it impossible to agree that we the tax payer should be penalized so RDOS can throw our money over the bank on such stupidity as paving the section of KVR Trail between OK Falls and Kaleden. First thing to consider is like every other form of exercise, does this mean that I may have to pay for other initiatives RDOS deems important? Essential services is one thing, this is both stupid and controlling. Who benefits most from these community privileges, if it’s the business man then let him do the paying, if it’s the village then they should foot the bill, but there is no way in hell that I should be forced to pay through “Carbon Tax” for something I neither want nor use. Roads, hydro, telephone service, medical, etc., I can support because we all use these services, but frills like this should be left up to the service clubs to generate these costs from membership fees, fund raisers and such.

When did wilderness trails become paved accesses that can now be questioned for safety and proper construction, who will be liable in the case of injury, does the RDOS have to maintain liability insurance for the operation of this trail, what else will add to the cost? And to make matters even worse, RDOS has improved their own remunerations justifying this by using consumer price indexing factors. (A bunch of bull). We continue to slowly move backwards by allowing these decisions made by various groups to go un-questioned and support them by not saying “no”. The RDOS, like Trans-link in the Lower Mainland should be abolished and dumped, the only known good either of them provide is “employment” for those working there. The municipalities in each area could do a far better job at a fraction of the cost. Dumb and stupid remain just that, no matter what order they are arranged, so if we want better and things that make sense, then we must start speaking out. Darryl R. Brewer,

Be selective when choosing your candidate To the Editor: We are about to elect a new slate of representatives into our B.C. Legislature. Please note, that did not refer to this group of people as the government. We are supposed to be living in a “democracy.” As such, We, the people, who are the electorate, are the government, and those representatives that we elect are to be the voices for us, so that we have a “government of the people, for the people, and by the people. “How can this be achieved?” you ask. Well, at the “All Candidates” meetings, it is your opportunity to interview these candidates for these positions, as our representatives. Remember, these representatives will be

well paid for their work. So be selective. Search for a candidate who can separate from party politics, in order to take care of the concerns of those people who elected that candidate. Follow up after the election, to check up, that your candidate is committed to his well paid position of trust. Remember, we, the people, are the government. The representatives we elected and are called the government, and are answerable to those who elected them. Therefore, those who are sitting as the government, are our employees; and should be encouraged to behave in an appropriate manner, of mutual respect. This is an interesting concept, and should work! Perhaps we could try it! Sincerely, Flo Winfrey, Olalla

Free series of neighbourly meditation classes offered To the Editor: Dear Valley Neighbors, Last year at this time I offered a free eight week series of meditation classes in Keremeos. It was well received, and since then there have been requests that I repeat it. I’d love to do so, if there’s enough interest. It will be similar to last year’s series, but with some differences that I hope will make it even better. The introductory session is scheduled for Sunday, May 19, promptly from 9:30 to noon. Our slogan is “Learn to Meditate in 150 Minutes!” In this extended session you will learn a pleasant and effective way to practice meditation, and you will be able to continue your practice on your own even without further instruction. The rich and sometimes subtle benefits of meditation, however, do depend on continuing and deepening practice. So you will be encouraged to participate in six more Tuesday evening classes, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., beginning May 21. Yes, they are also free. Only your

prompt and regular attendance is asked of you. Saint John’s Anglican Church, the corner of 5th Street and 6th Avenue, has graciously offered to house the series again. Meditation is essentially a spiritual practice, with practical health and wellness benefits. As I teach it, it is non-sectarian. Persons of any religious orientation or none are welcome (indeed, some of my best fellow meditators are atheists). An open mind will be helpful; an open heart will be the outcome. I will appreciate your mentioning this opportunity to your friends. Pre-registration will be helpful to me, so I ask that you indicate your interest by phoning Marlene at 499-4822, or emailing me directly at cdr@nethop.net. If interest dictates, I may offer the 150 minute introductory session at an additional alternate time in order to accommodate as many people as possible. Yes, that will be free too – my gift to you. Warm Regards, Ron Shonk, M.Div, M.Ed., Olalla

Sad day for democracy when signs are tampered with To the Editor: Its a sad day for Political Democracy in the Similkameen. Someone is removing the small campaign signs (NDP) along the Hwy. in Cawston. Not only does this

violate the right to Campaign but it also violates the law, namely the B.C. Elections Act. Thank you, George Venables, Cawston

Penticton Challenge race seeks regional district funding By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Barb Haynes of the Penticton Triathlon Race Society, appeared before the regional district board to discuss the upcoming Penticton Challenge triathlon race. Challenge Family triathlons are a global series that allows athletes of all ability levels to compete at a fair price, Haynes told the board. She said that 98 per cent of the athlete field consisted of “age group” athletes who were either passionate about sport or fulfilling “bucket lists”. Challenge Family consist of nine half distance and 10 long distance triathlons globally.

Haynes described Penticton’s entry into the Challenge Family as a “good opportunity.” The city holds the Canadian license and now has a good opportunity to brand the race. “The race will eventually be profitable,” Haynes said, “and there will be an opportunity to provide grants to local communities. The money that the race generates will be here to stay.” Haynes described the event as a week long festival leading up to race day. Pro racers will contract to participate in a series of events during the festival week, and prize money will amount to $75,000 this year, up from $60,000 last year. Relay teams are an new addition to triathlon racing in Penticton. They will contribute to a greater

cross section of people in the sport, as athletes partner with friends or family, or get matched up through the Challenge website. Haynes outlined this year’s racing budget. Marketing expenses will total $69,500 out of a $960,000 budget. Revenue will come from registrations, sponsorships, merchandising, an expo to be held during race weeks and staff grants. There are currently 1,362 athletes registered for this year’s race. “Everything in this year’s race starts from scratch,” Haynes said, noting there were no assets left over from previous years. Haynes also made a request to the board for regional district sponsorship, seeking $25,000. The board will discuss the request at a future meeting.

Farm workers advocacy group spend a day on the farm the dismantled Southwind Inn in Oliver and used the wood to build more rooms for their seasonal farm workers. Each year, the couple adds something: a new bunkhouse, a sitting room, a clothes line... They have no need to advertise for workers: they treat their workers like family and as such, they get the best of workers returning year after year. For information, contact Arlene Arlow, Chair, FACTOS-Farm And Community Team Okanagan Similkameen Ph/fax 250-499-5121

Contributed by Arlene Arlow

It doesn’t take much to provide for farm workers. A warm shower is a huge comfort at the end of a hot work day in the orchard. FACTOS-Farm And Community Team Okanagan Similkameen spent April 22 touring farms and vineyards near Oliver to get a better idea of what farmers offer to their seasonal workers. The activities formed “A Day On The Farm” and ended in an open forum where farmers could ask questions of government and agency reps like Pinder Dhaliwal, Vice-President of the BCFGA and Steve Marino of Worksafe BC. Greg and Chris Norton started small. The sheltered kitchen area for their workers near Oliver didn’t have a concrete floor at first. That came in time. Many farmers offer up comparable amenities to their workers. Other farmers are hardpressed to even provide a toilet. Visitors to their farm April 22 included representatives from Employment Standards and the FACTOS-Farm And Community Team Okanagan Similkameen. Greg and Chris have employed seasonal farm workers since 1986 when they took over the family farm. Most vineyards, ironically, do not offer accommodations, camping, a place to eat or showers to their workers. Fancy-schmancy. Compared to sleeping in the Photo contributed elements, the rooms offered by Greg and Chris Norton near Oliver are the Taj Mahal of seasonal farm worker accommodations. Several years ago, Farmworkers can survive comfortably with simple basics. Greg and Chris bought building materials from

Cawston Players prove entertaining once again Contributed The Cawston Players entertained the Cawston Community with another successful production with their latest play Barely Heirs, written by David Lassig. The reputation of the Cawston Players is spreading and people travelled from Penticton, Oliver and Okanagan Falls to take in the performance. Audiences were greeted with a wonderfully decorated entrance foyer curtesy of Therese Agasse and Marilyn Bergen, a magnificent set featuring four doors, a stair case, and an archway. The set was constructed by John Hutchinson and amazingly brought to life by well known local artist,Yako Dearburn. Local musicians Rob Robertson, Destin Lydiatt and Skye Martin entertained the audience and Crowsnest and Robin Ridge Wineries were on hand with their fine wines. Renate’s kitchen provided beautiful food. Wilfred Mennell was the lighting operator. The play itself was a hilarious rendi-

tion of a comedic farce with lots of odd twists of the truth.Amanda Elyzen produced an incredible performance as the woman needing to create several pretend husbands to inherit a considerable amount of money. She was ably assisted with a strong performance by Jenna Sipponen playing her friend and her “husband” as well.The strong supporting cast consisted of Guy Sassville playing Amanda’s returning boyfriend, Paul, Corentin Caro Chambard as “nurse Jacky” (among other characters),Taina Sipponen as the police women, Eben Mckiblin as the lawyer, William, and Gabriele Villecourt as Betty, Amanda’s mother. The play was directed By Bob McAtamney and produced by Dave Cursons. Stage manager was Louise Giguere and Jacquine Manet was costume manager.The Cawston Players wish to thank the many people from the community who helped with the production. Over 270 people attended the four performances and to them we say thank you for supporting the creative actors in our community.

The good news for seniors -- you receive a variety of tax assisted benefits and tax credits from the federal government that are not available to others. The not-so-good-news is that these benefits are income-tested and that can result in clawbacks from Old Age Security (OAS) payments and the Age Credit. OAS is a monthly benefit available to most Canadians age 65 or older. You will be required to repay 15% of the amount by which your net income for 2012 – which includes your OAS benefit – exceeds $69,562. When your net income exceeds $112,966, your entire OAS benefit is clawed back. Age Credit is a non-refundable tax credit available to Canadians age 65 or older. For 2012, the maximum amount you can claim as an Age Credit is $6,720. This amount is reduced by 15% of your net taxable income in excess of $33,884 is totally gone when your taxable income reaches $78,684. You can avoid OAS and Age Credit clawbacks by keeping your taxable income to the absolute minimum required to meet your needs. Here are some strategies for doing just that. ◘Pension income splitting You can allocate up to 50% of ‘eligible pension income’ – including payments from your investments held within a Registered Pension Plan (RPP) (at any age) and Registered Retirement Income (RRIF) (at/ after age 65) to your lower earning spouse, which usually reduces your family’s overall tax bill and clawbacks. ◘Other income-splitting strategies You can gift or loan assets to your spouse for investment purposes, contribute to investments held within a spousal RRSP (if your spouse is under age 71), and/or change who pays for daily living expenses and who invests. ◘Withdraw the minimum for your RRIF Withdrawals from investments held within a RRIF are fully taxable, so consider withdrawing only the minimum each year. If you have a younger spouse, base your withdrawals on their age – this will produce a smaller minimum withdrawal. ◘Invest in TFSAs Contributions to Tax-Free Savings Accounts (“TFSA”) generate tax-free investment income. TFSA withdrawals are not taxable, so do not result in clawbacks.

MANAGING Your Money ◘Seek non-registered investments that offer preferential tax treatment Only 50% of the capital gains generated by equity investments are taxable income, which may result in less of your income being subject to clawbacks. Another strategy to consider is tax-advantaged or switch funds that allow you to buy and sell investments without paying capital gains taxes until you leave the fund structure – so you can choose to defer tax payments to a year when your income is lower. The right strategies can definitely help you avoid clawbacks, reduce your tax burden and preserve your wealth. But to avoid falling afoul of complex tax rules, talk to your professional advisor first.

Getting to Mars

Hopefully, before too long, astronauts will be on their way to Mars, the red planet, to see first hand what the robot explorers are telling us. Having people on the spot will make it possible to change our research programmes depending upon what they encounter. One manned mission will do the work of a large number of rovers. When we set out to drive somewhere, we follow the planned route, making speed and direction adjustments as we go, until we arrive. Getting there by plane or ship is not very different.

However, space travel, at least using technologies now available, is something else entirely. Imagine a friend has thrown a ball. After a second or so we throw a small stone so that it gently touches the ball in mid-flight. This is very difficult; the timing, speed and direction have to be just right, with very little room for error. Because errors are inevitable, we can improve the situation by putting a tiny rocket motor on the stone, so that small course corrections are possible, and to minimize the speed with which the objects make contact. However, we cannot make the stone too heavy to throw, so that rocket motor cannot be too big and not much fuel can be carried. Therefore we cannot afford large launch

errors. How we navigate the Solar System is very much like this, with the stone representing our spacecraft and the ball our destination planet. A possible mission to Mars could be like this. Large rockets lift into orbit the components for possibly three spacecraft. These would be parked near the International Space Station (ISS), where they will be assembled. Multiple spacecraft will reduce the chance of astronauts being stranded in space or on the surface of Mars by equipment failures during a possibly multiyear mission. There would be astronauts on each spacecraft, but extra seats and accommodation will be included, just in case everyone has to come home in two or perhaps one of

the vehicles. Because everything has to be lifted into orbit from the surface of the Earth, keeping down the total weight of the spacecraft is important. Similarly, the heavier the spacecraft, the more fuel we need for propulsion, course corrections and landing, and inevitably that adds more weight. At exactly the right time the spacecraft engines are started, throwing the flotilla onto its trajectory to Mars. We accelerate to the right speed, in the right direction. Then we shut down the engines and for some months we “fall to Mars”. As we approach the Red Planet, its gravity starts to tug at our spacecraft, accelerating us towards our destination. We have to get rid of this speed, or crash. Fortunately Mars has an atmosphere, so we

can use “air drag” to slow us down. Then we can use either parachutes or wings to control our descent. However, Mars’ atmosphere is too thin for these to give us a sufficiently gentle landing, so we use rocket motors and fuel to set us down softly on the Martian Surface. Then we can argue among ourselves as to who gets to make the first footprints. That is, other than any that might have been made beforehand by the locals. Jupiter is still unmissable, but is getting low in the western sky in the evening. Saturn rises before sunset and is well up in the east by dark. The Moon will reach last quarter on May 2.

Canada Post faces challenging times ahead as letter mail volumes plummet Fewer letters and more parcels is resulting in the need for profound changes in the way Canada Post does business By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Canada Post is feeling the effects of the growing popularity of internet - and post offices customers in the region are paying the price. At the April 18 regional district director’s board meeting, Canada Post’s service levels in the area were discussed after a director’s motion, introduced by Oliver rural Director Allan Patton, resulted in a letter to Canada Post in January of this year. The letter inquired about possible reductions in service levels after learning about a mail sorting change implemented by Canada Post. The change now sees mail destined for delivery between communities in the South Okanagan and Similkameen shipped to Vancouver for sorting rather than Kelowna. The move adds a considerable delay to mail moving between regional district communities. The board subsequently received a letter from Jacques Bellerive, Canada Post Director of Operations for B.C. and Yukon, who cited significant losses from steadily decreasing volumes of letter mail as the reason behind the service changes. He also noted that the move helped to optimize operating capacity of sorting equipment in Vancouver. More recently, the board received a letter from BC Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko, expressing concern about declining service levels. He also enclosed a proposed draft resolution for the board’s consideration. The resolution instructed Steven Fletcher, Minister responsible for Canada Post, to: - keep post offices in the regional district open. - consult with the public, their elected representatives, postal unions and other major stakeholders to dramatically improve the Canadian Postal Service Charter, including developing a better process for making changes to the retail and delivery network. The board opted to accept the letter from Atamanenko and extend an invitation to Penticton MP Dan Albas to stop by and discuss the postal issue, amongst other things. A decision on Atamanenko’s motion will be tabled until after that meeting. In late April, concerns were raised nationally when the Conference Board of Canada released a report called “The Future of Postal Service in Canada.” It looked at how the needs and expectations of Canadian households and businesses are evolving, and assessed a range of options that could enable Canada’s postal service to remain self-sustaining in the digital age. Among the highlights of the report were the

Do you have a business?

following points: - almost half of Canadian households send no more than two pieces of mail through the postal system each month. - Canada Post’s present standard of service is higher than Canadians now expect or need. - the growth of e-commerce is driving up demand for parcel delivery. The report also suggested that eliminating delivery to the door for urban residential customers would be the option with the largest financial impact, followed by alternate day delivery. Letter mail volume declined by 6.4 per cent in 2012 alone. Without savings reached in a new collective agreement with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers that was signed late last year, Canada Post would have lost 54 million dollars in 2012. The constantly growing use of internet is the main reason for the steady decline in letter mail, but Canada Post also benefits from the internet as parcel delivery increases - fueled by customers’ on line purchases. Parcel volumes grew by 6.7 per cent in 2012, but the increase in parcel volume wasn’t substantial enough to make up for the letter mail losses. BC Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko sent a letter to Deepak Chopra, President of Canada Post Corporation, also in late April, urging him to reconsider a decision to open a postal franchise office within a half kilometre of the main corporate office in Castlegar. Atamanenko was concerned that the manoeuvre was a part of a plan to eventually close the main post office. He said: Dear Mr. Chopra, I have just learned from the Castlegar local of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) that Canada Post has served notice of its intent to open a postal franchise office within one half of a kilometer from the main corporate post office located at 1011-4th Street. Apparently, Canada Post has also advised that it intends to “review and reduce” the retail counters and services at existing corporate outlets. According to CUPW when Canada Post is planning on closing down the main office, one of the first steps is to set up a private franchise to take away revenue. It can then claim that the corporate office is no longer viable. It is my understanding that Castlegar is protected by the moratorium against closures under the Canadian Postal Service Charter. The workers at our main post office are very concerned that if a franchise is established within close proximity to the corporate office, this will soon justify reductions in service at the main office. I have been told that Canada Post is reviewing its retail operations across the country and has already begun removing a number of tills at the front counter. This, of course, creates line-ups and unnecessary delays for customers. On behalf of our postal workers and the citizens of our community, I strongly urge you to ensure that our main post office remains a strong viable operation with adequate dedicated personnel to serve its customers. Introducing a franchise at such close proximity interferes with this. It is important to understand that good-paying

union jobs are one of the pillars of our small rural communities and contribute to small businesses as well as other aspects of our economy. Thank you for your consideration of this important matter. Sincerely, Alex Atamanenko, MP BC Southern Interior Within a few days of the above letter, Atamanenko wrote Chopra once more, after it came to his attention that Canada Post was planning to establish other dealership outlets in Oliver, Nelson, Trail and Grand Forks. Unfortunately or not, Canada Post has a mandate from the Government of Canada to remain financially self-sufficient as well as to provide a standard of postal service that is affordable and meets the needs of the people of Canada. “Canadians recognize that the way they use mail is changing, but haven’t yet fully understood how severely that is affecting Canada Post’s business model,” said David Stewart-Patterson, Vice-President, Public Policy. The Conference Canadians recBoard came to the ognize that the conclusion that no way they use mail single change to prices is changing, but or service standards haven’t yet fully will be sufficient to enunderstood how severely that is affectable self sustainabilty ing Canada Post’s as mail volumes are business model... expected to continue to - Dave Stewartdecline. Paterson The report examined five options for cutting costs: wage restraint; alternate-day delivery for mail (but not parcels); converting Canadian households door-to-door delivery to community mail boxes; further replacement of corporate post offices with franchised postal outlets; and reduced speed of delivery. Eliminating delivery to the door for urban residential customers would be the option with the largest financial impact, saving a projected $576 million a year. Door-to-door delivery is still the largest single category of delivery method, but two-thirds of Canadian households are now served by delivery to centralized points, group mailboxes, delivery facilities, and rural mailboxes. Canada Post responded to the Conference Board’s report on April 23. In a statement, Canada Post said that it must “seriously consider all the options put forward by the Conference Board with the understanding that no single initiative will be sufficient to stem the losses from the steep decline in mail volumes. In doing so, the Corporation must continue to meet its public policy obligations, such as serving every Canadian address, including those in rural and northern Canada.” The corporation added that it had launched a public online forum for Canadians to join a national conversation that will help to shape future postal services.
