Proudly serving Williams Lake and the Cariboo-Chilcotin since 1930

Alexa’s Team keeping roads safe

VOL. 83. No. 36


As part of their recent Streets of Learning fundraiser students at 150 Mile House Elementary School voted on which staff member they wanted to kiss a pig. Principal Calvin Williams won the vote and reluctantly kissed the pig, being held here by Todd VanWyk. “I have no idea how the pig felt, but Calvin was disgusted to be kissed by a pig, lipsticked to boot!” says Yvonne Davis. The 150 Mile House Elementary school is also hosting its fifth annual family dance this Friday, May 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. with great food, fun, dancing and auction items for all. Everyone is welcome.

On May 2 the BCAA Road Safety Foundation will join the Middelaer family in Prince George honouring the members of the 2012 Alexa’s Team for outstanding work removing impaired drivers from B.C.’s streets and highways. North District Detachment areas include; 100 Mile House, Chetwynd, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Fort Nelson, North District, Prince George, Quesnel, Smithers, Terrace, Tsay Keh Dene and Williams Lake. Formed in 2008, Alexa’s Team has grown from 26 members to over 1,000 new and returning R.C.M.P. and municipal police officers from all corners of the province. Alexa’s Team members have removed more than 41,000 impaired drivers from the roads and highways.

Teachers study impact of residential schools Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer While some former residential school students may be “tattered” they have survived, said Grand Chief Ed John while in Williams Lake Friday, April 26. John, a hereditary chief from Stuart Lake, participated in a threemember panel discussion on the residential school legacy during a Pro D event for School District 27. Teachers, administrators, local politicians and many residential school survivors were among those who attended to hear the panel members answer questions and share their stories. The panel discussion was the first in a series of events that are taking place for what’s been called the St. Joseph’s Mission Residential School Commemorative Project. “Despite the odds out there, and despite the efforts of institutions in the country, we’re still standing up on our two legs as people and we will continue to build on whatever we have remaining to become

strong again,” John said. “Not to be belligerent, not to be arrogant, but to be confident and to build on that basis.” Around 150,000 First Nations attended residential school in Canada, he added. Phyllis Webstad went to St. Joseph’s Mission School near Williams Lake for one year when she was six years old. She had been living with her grandmother on the Dog Creek Reserve. She recalled going shopping for a new outfit before going to the school. When she arrived at the school, with a brand new shiny orange shirt, she was stripped, and never saw the shirt again. As a child who had just turned six, she didn’t understand why the shirt was taken away. “Nobody cared that I had feelings or that I was upset,” Webstad said, adding she purposely wore orange to a press conference earlier in the week. “It was like I didn’t matter and I think that’s what orange means to me. I just couldn’t

wear orange today. You never know what’s going to trigger. I’m sure each residential school survivor has a trigger.” Webstad’s understanding of what happened to her has been “backwards,” she said. “I was raised by my grandmother because my mother was told to leave by the Indian Agent because there was no work at Dog Creek and she went to work in canneries in the U.S.” Being hugged, kissed and loved, stopped when Webstad went to residential school and nobody ever explained why. “With my grandmother it was to protect herself because she had to let go. I always grew up not feeling worth, choosing spouses who abused me, and not thinking I was worth anything. I had to do a lot of work to know that wasn’t true,” Webstad said. Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, never went to residential school, but was apprehended at the age of one, and taken into care. Originally from

Penticton, Phillip lived in Hedley for the first five years and then moved to Quesnel. “I had absolutely no idea who I was, other than the fact that I had moved from elementary through high school knowing I was definitely not on the top of the food chain,” Phillip said. “Being native, being an Indian, was not the flavour of the day. But I did not know I was an Okanagan of the Seal people.” Quoting Justice Murray Sinclair, Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Phillip said the residential school didn’t just happen to First Nations, but it happened to all of Canada, resulting in an “abysmal relationship.” “We’re all in this together and there are challenges this country faces. We need to set aside our petty differences,” Phillip said. “There was an incredibly inter-economic relationship that we relied on in the past. We need to establish that again.” See TEACHERS Page A5

Cariboo Fire Centre responds to 27 wild fires The Cariboo Fire Centre and Wildfire Management branch has already responded to 27 wild fires this season. “Almost all of these fires have been the result of open burning, and thus could have been prevented,” the CFC noted in a press release Monday, adding the CFC would like to remind the public about its open burning prohibition. “The CFC/WMB’s prohibition bans all backyard and industrial burning, including waste, slash, stubble and grass. Campfires are still permitted, but they must be kept under a half-metre by half-metre in size and the usual precautions must be taken (have at least eight litres of water and a tool on hand, do not light in windy conditions never leave unattended, extinguish until cold to the touch).” The prohibition came into effect at noon on April 15 and was put in place two weeks later than last season. Despite the current weather that is relatively cool and wet, Environment Canada’s spring/ summer outlook for the Cariboo-Chilcotin shows above-normal drought codes and anomalies, above-normal temperatures, below-normal snowpacks and belownormal precipitation. So far the CFC/WMB is by far the busiest region in B.C. this season: http://bcwildfire. ca/hprScripts/WildfireNews/Statistics.asp This is also the time

of year when holdover fires could resurface. Holdovers are fires that have been improperly extinguished, continue to smoulder underground and then reignite. During critical wildfire situations, the CFC/ WMB can’t afford to risk having person-caused fires divert time, personnel, money and resources from naturally occurring fires. The prohibition will help reduce the number of these preventable wildfires so we can focus our efforts where they are needed most. The prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have wildfire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Please check with civic authorities for any restrictions before lighting a fire. In certain circumstances, exemptions to the prohibition can be granted on a case-bycase basis. People should contact their local zone office if they wish to apply for an exemption. Anyone found burning during the prohibition may be fined $345, and if that fire creates a wildfire they may be held responsible for all firefighting costs. A number of warning and violation tickets have been already been issued. The CFC covers an area of about 10.3-million hectares, stretching from Look Lake near Clinton in the south, to

the Cottonwood River near Quesnel in the north, Tweedsmuir Pro-

Cariboo-Chilcotin candidates weigh in on forest industry

Donna Barnett

Charlie Wyse

Dustin Price

The second set of questions the Tribune asked the candidates running in the provincial election is about their stance on forestry as follows: How would your government protect and enhance forests in B.C. for future generations, MLA Donna Barnett Liberal Party (incumbent) Cariboo Chilcotin The Select Standing Committee on Timber which was an all-party committee toured the province and listened to the public. In August 2012 the committee completed their deliberations. The committee’s report set out recommended actions to mitigate the impact of the Mountain Pine Beetle on mid-term timber supply. Local activities are now being developed based on the committee’s recommendations. The Cariboo region is responding to midterm timber supply as a core operational priority. During the spring of 2013 the Cariboo Region will complete Type IV silviculture strategies in each of the regions three timber supply areas. The strategies identify opportunities to invest in incremental silviculture treatments to enhance timber production and wood quality. The Cariboo region is currently preparing an information package (which may now be completed) that is intended to support the deliberations of natural resource stakeholders, First Nations and communities as these groups determine what, if any request, they may wish to

submit to government. For information packages contact local FLNR offices. Raw log exports Our preference is to have logs milled here at home. The reality is that much of the log exports are derived from private land and isolated communities on the coast of British Columbia. These exports are what provide the jobs to support the families of these British Columbians.’ We are committed to ensuring an approach that meets the needs of both domestic mills and the economy in this province. Charlie Wyse New Democratic Party Cariboo-Chilcotin A New Democrat government will reverse more than a decade of Liberal neglect by doubling the number of seedlings planted on Crown land. Unlike the Liberals, who have continually eroded our scientific, expert capacity to make informed decisions about the land base, New Democrats will research capacity of the Ministry of Forests so that we can maximize the po-

Raw log exports New Democrats want to maximize the number of BC jobs created with B.C., logs, which is why we will work with the industry to shift away from raw log exports and toward opening new markets for value-added B.C. wood products. Dustin Price BC Green Party Cariboo-Chilcotin The BC Green Party Forestry Action Plan focuses on creating a full inventory of our forest situation while taking a scientific approach to maintaining the health of our forests. A sustainable harvest, while encouraging value-added opportunities, will create more jobs while maintaining sustainability practices. Raw log exports The focus on raw log exports is a short-sited approach. This is a net negative effect that could be remedied with the processing of raw logs locally, while creating a sustainable and diverse value-added economy in the region. A BC Green MLA and government would work to incentivize mills to upgrade their cur-

rent systems to be able to process second growth forests, thus creating a stable local forestry economy. Processing, jobs, and money need to stay in the Cariboo-Chilcotin. Why would we send raw logs and the rich processing system that accompanies it to foreign countries? How does that benefit us when we sell our precious resources for pennies on the dollar? Gary Young Independent Cariboo-Chilcotin Protecting forests in B.C. involves the government not giving control to the big logging concerns. When we need more protection for reserve areas the government cuts staffing and no monitoring is done. Raw log exports Creating new forestry jobs is difficult with a declining resource unless it is value added sectors when we stop exporting raw logs. Small high-tech mills and processors could be located closer to timber supplies as on north Vancouver Island. The jobs needed are in accelerated planting and seedling growers.

Cariboo North candidates weigh in on forest industry The second set of questions the Tribune asked the candidates running in the provincial election is about their stance on forestry as follows: How would your government protect and enhance forests in B.C. for future generations, MLA Bob Simpson Independent (incumbent) Cariboo North We need to conduct a comprehensive and independent review of the state of our forests and forest policy. This means more than simply counting trees – we need a cumulative impacts and climate change impacts inventory and analysis of the entire public land base before investing public money in tree planting.

Cariboo North candidates: forestry Continued From Page A3 We also need a fasttracked independent review of forest policy and the establishment of a provincial chief forester as an independent officer of the B.C. Legislature in order to protect our public forests from the four-year political cycle and start managing it for future generations. I participated in a government committee that examined the potential to develop a bio-economy in B.C. That committee’s recommended action plan is available for the next government to implement. This would create a whole new forest economy in B.C. with longterm sustainable jobs in a renewable resource sector. Raw log exports Most of the so-called “raw logs” being exported from B.C. are from private lands and under federal jurisdiction. Therefore we need to partner with the federal government to restrict the flow of these logs from B.C. We also need a strengthened Private Managed Forest Land Act to ensure the forests on these private lands are being managed sustainably. The government cannot “ban” log exports as that would shut down what’s left of the coastal forest industry and result in the loss of thousands of harvesting and hauling jobs and put what’s left of the coastal pulp

industry at risk. Instead, the government must work with the coastal industry to implement an escalating tax on log exports over the next three to five years and use the money generated from that tax to fund re-investment in coastal manufacturing. If current lumber prices hold, this is an ideal time to revitalize the coast industry and maintain the harvesting/hauling jobs while creating new ones in the manufacturing sector. Duncan Barnett New Democratic Party Cariboo North In mid-April, NDP forestry critic Norm Macdonald visited my campaign office in Quesnel for the second time to outline the fivepoint New Democrat plan to grow the forest industry and improve the health of B.C. forests. In the Cariboo, healthy forests mean healthy companies and healthy communities. Under the BC Liberals, we’ve lost thousands of jobs in forestry and fallen short on maintaining the health of our forests. That’s why a New Democrat government will implement a $100 million, five-year strategic and operational plan to revitalize our forest industry. We will undertake the inventory work necessary to manage the timber supply and invest in the resource by doubling

the number of seedlings planted on Crown land to 50 million a year. We will see that government has the capacity to undertake climate change research and necessary land use planning. We will also provide more support for communities suffering from timber shortages due to pine beetle. Raw log exports The Cariboo has world class forest companies. We will work with them and other stakeholders to fully utilize our forest resources, reduce raw log exports and increase international markets for our valueadded wood products so that B.C. logs create more B.C. jobs Coralee Oakes Liberal Party Cariboo North In recent years, we have been faced with the devastation to our forests from the mountain pine beetle epidemic and we must look at increasing regeneration. In our government’s budget we will be planting 22.7 million seedlings, a 56 per cent increase from last year. We are also implementing the 10-year, $80 million forest inventory plan to ensure 35 million hectares are inventoried in mountain pine beetle affected priority areas. This inventory will be used to assess forest condition forecasts, timber supply analysis, silviculture, timber harvest planning, habitat mapping, wildlife risk assessment

and biodiversity assessments. We need to be adaptive and better utilize the fibre that is accrued by our forests through bioenergy, wood pellets and finger-jointed lumber. A key element to the future of our forest industry is being able to take advantage of market upturns and remain competitive when markets are soft as set out in the BC Jobs Plan Forest Sector Strategy. This strategy has resulted in keeping several of our region’s mills open. Exports to China are up 1,500 per cent since 2011, and we are expanding into India and South Korea. We will continue to travel overseas to open new markets. Raw log exports Our preference is to

have logs milled here at home. The reality is that much of the log exports are derived from private land and isolated communities on the coast of British Columbia. These exports are what provide the jobs to support the families of these British Columbians. We are committed to ensuring an approach that meets the needs of both domestic mills and the economy in this province.

Teachers encouraged to share stories Continued From Page A1 John called on the federal government to act on the formal apology Prime Minister Stephen Harper gave to residential school survivors in

June 2008. “We need support to ensure that we regain our families and our languages,” he said. Joking he addressed the males in the crowd. “This is the time of year we as boys would

bring out our marbles. We need to keep playing marbles in a fair way and to keep all of our marbles with us to ensure what we did in the school yards, quietly away from the supervisors. We talked to each other in

our language and there was a bit of defiance in each and every one of us because we knew if someone heard us that we would suffer the consequences,” John said. Webstad encouraged teachers to invite survi-

vors into the classroom to share stories and ask them and their students to listen without judgement. As she hears the stories emerging from other survivors she said hurts are being awoken as if it was yesterday. One person told about being so hungry they ate cow pellets at the mission school. Another told of ending up with two boots for the same foot because that’s all that was left in the pile. “We need to download. And I want my

orange shirt back,” Webstad said. Esk’etemc chief Fred Robbins has been one of the driving forces behind the project. “First Nations people who attended the school, like myself, have worked hard since it closed in 1981 to seek justice for the wrongs we suffered and to create a new legacy for our children and grandchildren,” Robbins said. District Superintendent Mark Thiessen said often people are tempted to think the residential

schools were “long ago” and faraway. “It was neither of those and if you are 32 or older, it happened in your life time,” he said. The important thing to remember is that education is so vital when humans do horrible things to each other. “Chief Fred’s vision needs to be shared with all of us that we are truly neighbours. Until we understand that and start living like that every single day, our region and our school district will not move forward.”

B.C. mayors meeting productive

The winds of change are blowing

ow that the budget has been given its first three readings, it’s a good time to point out that our business class taxes are lower than most other northern communities, and some other resource-based communities in the province. Our 2012 business rate of $11.88 per $1,000 of assessment is very close to the provincial average of $11.38/$1,000, and is lower than many northern and resource-based communities, whose rates vary between From the $12 and Mayor’s $25 per $1,000. Chair Council Kerry Cook looks forward to working with our Chamber of Commerce to find even more ways to be business-friendly. I had a very productive two days in Prince George recently at the BC Mayors Caucus spring meeting. We dealt with a number of issues and endorsed a number of statements. Among them are resolutions supporting efforts to secure a long-term, predictable infrastructure funding source for local governments, supporting the creation of a provincial ministry dedicated to local government, and requesting that the province extend the Small Communities Grant Program. Having 70 mayors together is a powerful force for positive change for local governments. I was one of several speakers at a news conference announcing the series of events, including a conference May 16-17, for the St. Joseph’s Mission Commemoration Project. It was a powerful experience listening to Chief Fred Robbins and Phyllis Webstad, both survivors of St. Joseph’s. Chief Fred’s vision and leadership has taken this unique event from an idea to a reality, and I thank him and the planning committee of community leaders. I see this project as a beginning. We will be acknowledging the school’s history, and discussing healing and reconciliation, but we will also be looking to the future, in how we as a community move forward together. I am looking forward to more productive sessions with elected officials at the North Central Local Government Association convention in Quesnel this week. This year’s theme is Driving the Economy, something that council is focusing on here in Williams Lake. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

he wind has been howling with such strength and power that it can easily whip the cowboy hat right off your head, sending it spiralling in the air before it returns to earth rolling so rapidly along the ground that even on horseback, you are hard-pressed to catch up and retrieve it. My mother-in-law (Scots) used to say, never cast a klute (guess at spelling) until the month of May is out, her someCattle w h a t Fodder obscure way of Liz Twan noting that you should never discard your long underwear until May was done. Seems absurd, but working cowboys are nodding in agreement. Advice to heed right now if you head outdoors for the workday. The only time this past week when our crew would have wished they had shucked their thermal undergarments was on Saturday-Sunday as they worked long hours fighting our first forest fire which was further inflamed by howling wind. Thousands of gallons of water were required to bring it under control. Locally one might assume that the extra volume of snow, late arrival of spring (lack of warmth) and loggers on-break-up signifies that all is well (wet) in the woods (forest/grasslands) in the Cariboo. It’s not so — the constant winds have dried out the land and there are several fires presently burning in the region. Winds of change are blowing too, province-wide as forecasters view political jousts and skirmishes as we draw near to voting (decision) day. After viewing the televised leaders-debate, my only firm conclusion was that not one single candidate rose up from the crowd, none oozed charisma or strength of convictions in my eyes (regardless of their political-affiliation). In the face of the physical and mental realities of life this past week, I think Bob Dylan called it... The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind. The answer is blowin’ in the wind. Liz Twan is a rancher and freelance columnist for the Tribune.



Our Viewpoint

Halfway point The televised leaders’ debate Monday likely didn’t change too many minds. While it wasn’t watched in its entirety by many people, clips were replayed almost right away. Comments about it, and media coverage of it, will ensure that it has an influence on the rest of the provincial election campaign. NDP leader Adrian Dix came across quite well. Although he was clearly nervous at the beginning, he grew more confident and had no trouble answering some of the more difficult questions. His willingness to take full responsibility for his backdated memo, when he was an aide to then-premier Glen Clark, and to say he’s learned from that, was a high water mark. It should put the doubts that many people have about him on that score to rest. While his unwillingness to even consider oil and gas transport to the west coast is troubling, given that oil and gas is such a crucial component of the Canadian economy, he did at least address other areas of the economy. This was a pointed contrast to Green Party leader Jane Sterk, who when asked about B.C.’s resource economy made references to wind power, geothermal energy and agriculture — without once mentioning forestry, min-

ing and natural gas. BC Liberal leader Christy Clark stuck mainly to her talking points, about LNG developments, eliminating debt and her eagerness to balance budgets. She did address the controversy about her driving through a red light (after first stopping) with her son and a reporter in her vehicle, and that should help put that issue to bed. In the scheme of things, it isn’t worth a lot of discussion. BC Conservative leader John Cummins was willing to address the elephant in the room that the other leaders ignored — many working people in B.C. don’t have it so good. High housing costs, high fuel costs and high taxes take a lot out of their pockets, and job prospects aren’t as robust as they have been. As Cummins said Tuesday morning, the debate was simply one stop on a marathon race. It came at a time when some people are paying a little more attention to the campaign, although the majority remain quite blissfully tuned out thus far. The debate was a good opportunity to compare the leaders and assess. - Langley Times

More Viewpoints Branding of Williams Lake Question of the week is not a waste of money Editor: I have been amazed over the last few weeks the negative outpouring over the branding project for the City of Williams Lake. Don’t waste our tax money! Don’t get rid of our cowboy heritage! Republic of Life sounds like a bunch of Communists! Re-branding of Williams Lake will not get rid of a century old heritage nor will it turn us into a bunch of raving socialists.

But failure to re-brand will most likely lead to the failure to attract diverse young people who are our future citizens and tax payers. When I retire (not any time soon) I would like to live in Williams Lake, but who is going to support me and help care for me? What will be here to encourage my children to visit Williams Lake? Branding used to mean marking an animal to indicate ownership. The new branding is a market-

ing technique for the advancement of a city. Fear, uncertainty and discomfort are your compass towards growth. Forty-thousand dollars seems like a cheap investment for the future growth for a great city. Jim Rohn had a quote. “Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.”

Better child poverty plan needed Editor: I was disappointed to read the NDP’s plan to reduce child poverty. What Income Assistance in B.C. needs is a plan to get people on their feet, not to keep them in the same position with little chance of getting a good head start. The proposed extra $20 a month is money that could be better spent on helping people on income assistance go to school, find a job, or put their children in daycare. The second part of the NDP plan is raising family support, but family support already goes to everyone in a certain income bracket, working or on income assistance, and the amount is sufficient. I would suggest that single parents should receive one year of assistance while spending that criti-

cal year with their child. The second year should be a year to plan and set goals and prepare for work or school, while still spending time with their child. The third year should be taking action in education or schooling, with daycare paid in full by subsidy or income assistance. For people who have been in a long-term relationship and have split, there should be a work or school action plan to help them get on their feet and prepare to make it on their own. As for working while on income assistance — I do think that there should be a cap on how much a person can earn while on income assistance. Every situation would be different. I think for the most part there should be gradual decline on the

amount a person should be able to earn. People shouldn’t be put off or scolded for accessing resources. They should be welcomed and encouraged to make a better life for themselves. I think that the ministries, including the Ministry of Child and Family Development, need to work together to come up with comprehensive plans and procedures to help people on income assistance, particularly parents and people living with addiction or mental disabilities. With the proper planning and resources, income assistance could be better designed to help people in need and dramatically reduce the amount of poverty in B.C. Kaila Poore Quesnel

Prosperity Mine isn’t an election issue Editor:

We are in the midst of a provincial election. Four years ago there was a lot of debate about the proposed Prosperity Mine at Fish Lake. Since then the Federal Government in Ottawa rejected the mine’s application. They said “no” to Prosperity Mine. It did not meet environmental standards or address the Aboriginal concerns. Why is this, once again, an elec-

tion issue? I don’t understand. The Federal Government said “no” to Prosperity Mine. There are a lot of issues that could be debated that are under the control of the provincial government. It is time to move on. I want to hear the candidates talk about issues such as unemployment, forestry, health care, education, tourism, etc. Joan Magee Williams Lake

Chamber of Commerce works on a new strategic plan Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce president Jason Ryll said the chamber is focusing its board and staff efforts on the things it can have an impact on. “Our members will come first, that’s our priority,” Ryll told members at the monthly luncheon April 25. “While the flash appeal of some larger projects around the province and larger developments might have more impact on the number of jobs created, especially north like the Port of Prince Rupert’s LNG developments, refineries in Kitimat, even Enbridge, we are focusing more on local issues and the business community here.” One of the goals in the chamber’s strategic planning is to improve working relations and supporting the business advancements of First Nations in the region. “We’re proud of our First Nations, and I for one would like to continue to encourage their business ideas and financial successes,” Ryll said, adding the chamber is doing that in smaller steps, such as tourism counsellor training, in partnership with the Cariboo Chilcotin Ab-

original Training Employment Centre. The chamber has also had taxation discussions with Mayor Kerry Cook and city staff, Ryll said. “I know it’s the number one issue, especially when it comes to the business community. We can always hope for lower taxes. We met about the concerns our members have brought to us.” Ryll said the chamber would like to help the city in every way possible achieve its goal to become the “most business-friendly city” in the province. “I believe if the city works more closely with us and hears what we have to say as the voice of business, it will help both of our organizations get where we need to be.” He also told members the chamber will be soliciting a response from the business community in the near future, asking members to define “business friendly.” “We want to know your opinion, what does it mean to you? We’ll carry that message forward.” It may not happen overnight, or even during Ryll’s term as president, but it is a goal. Another goal of the strategic plan is helping with the role of economic development in Wil-

liams Lake. “Instead of picking it apart or making it an easy target, we see it as a community function that could use some support so through conversations with the mayor and staff, we’ve offered that support.” Other supports have included training in succession planning, PST transitioning, and World Host. The chamber runs

the Visitor’s Information Centre and recently renewed its five-year agreement with Tourism B.C. to operate the centre. “We have an agreement in place with the city to operate the Visitor’s Information Centre until we revisit our terms of the contract next year.” As of May, the VIC will be open seven days a week for the tourism sea-

son, and will be offering more services. “A couple of examples are the availability to obtain a fishing license at the centre, which has helped to better serve customers coming through the door.” They also have a renta-rod program for visitors wanting to try fishing in one of the local lakes. “It’s getting people engaged and offering

services through the centre that are going to keep


people here a little bit longer,” Ryll said.

Great Room provides support for abused women Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer It’s safe and secure say women who rely on the Great Room in Williams Lake. Designed as a “sacred” space for women dealing with physical, emotional, sexual and physiological abuse in a safe environment, the Great Room operates in Williams Lake under the direction of Dina Kennedy, Williams Lake co-ordinator for Linwood House Ministries of Vancouver. In January the Great Room was relocated from its original location at the Salvation Army to an upstairs office on Oliver Street. Last week people travelled from as far as Vancouver to help celebrate its grand opening. Bernice, 42, has been visiting the Great Room since the second week it opened. She lost her husband in 2010 and said she couldn’t cope with the pain and loss. “Dina came to me years ago as a friend and told me about the Great Room in Vancouver and I said I’d love to see one here,” Bernice said. So many women don’t know how to open up, she added. She moved away to be closer to her children, but decided she needed to be close to the Great Room and moved back. “I’ve learned an abundance of things. To keep my head up high and get my self-esteem back.” Different speakers visit to teach life skills, and group discussions where

It’s spiritual to me and has made me go closer to God,” Bernice said. Without hesitation she disclosed she’s been a victim of domestic violence with the fathers of her children. Julia has been visiting the Great Room since it opened, although because of physical problems doesn’t make it every week. “I like it here. It’s relaxing,” she said with a sigh. “If I’m not interested in the conversation I can listen and do something like bead or crochet.” It’s safe and secure, and a place without judgement, she said. After high school Julia moved away from Williams Lake, returning when she was 24 with her son. Other than visiting the Great Room, she said she’s a “house hobbit.” “The town’s improving, but not so much for the visually impaired.”

Encouraging other women to give the Great Room a try, Julia suggested it might take three visits. “We do different things. Once in awhile we go to the old ice cream shop and bake. Holistic speakers come in. We learn from everybody in the community and it’s really nice.” When asked if she’s been a victim of violence, she nodded, paused, and said, “not anymore.” Gwen McVicker, founder of Linwood Ministers said she was inspired to open the first Great Room, which is in Vancouver, after a visit to Williams Lake in 2001. “I was invited up here as a speaker and was a guest of Danielle and Steve Court, who were with the Salvation Army in Williams Lake,” McVicker recalled. While in the lakecity for two days, she went to an interdenominational Christian event, walked the streets with the Courts, was introduced to business people and city hall. “I saw that Danielle and Steve knew every-

body name, whether they were business people, or the needy and poor.” She was so impressed she thought: “that’s what the Downtown Eastside needs. We need a leader who can connect the dots between business, care workers, church and the poor.” Two months later the Courts arrived in Vancouver and along with McVicker, started walking the streets in the Downtown Eastside. “It was hard to get to know people because their defences are up, so we started inviting them to Linwood House on the Sunshine Coast for three day retreats.” They invited people who everything they owned fit into a garbage bag. If they were in an addiction, they couldn’t use while on the retreat. Business people, church people, caregivers, and artists joined the retreat.

“We built relationships with these women, we listened and shared our stories, and made a personal connection and commitment to journey with them for the rest of their lives to make positive changes.” Bernice has been there once before and is fundraising to go again. “We’re hoping eight women can go. It’s going to be called the Williams Lake retreat,” she said. “It’s $300 per girl, but look at it,” she added, showing a photo album of the heritage home’s exterior, elegantly set tables for meals, and smiling women taking an art class making pottery elephants. Linwood opened the Great Room in the Downtown Eastside, partnering with other groups to teach and train. Teams of women have also travelled to 15 different countries in the world. “We discovered when we went globally there are the same issues. Exploitation, domestic violence, abuse, inequality between men and women, and the things that we saw globally were what we saw in our own backyard.” Kennedy volunteered with Linwood Ministries at the Great Room in Vancouver, and in Thailand, working with women involved with human trafficking.

Camille Dhillon, renowned speaker on violence against women, said credit goes to Kennedy for never giving up on her dream. “It’s opening new doors to the women and the community accepting and telling them they are valuable. We undo the labels attached to them, giving them new labels and a new outlook in life, that they’re beautiful and worthy. They matter and

can be just like anybody else.” Mayor Kerry Cook said it’s amazing to see what Kennedy has been able to do because she “truly has a heart for women.” “I’ve known her for 12 years. She believes in all people and invests her time into making a difference in people’s lives and it shows. Today is an expression of her vision and compassion.”

Tim Hortons Bicycle Rodeo

Beadman-Rolph, Brenner competing at National Aboriginal Hockey Championships Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake’s Chantelle Beadman-Rolph and Matthew Brenner are taking a crack at a National Aboriginal Hockey Championship. Both players began play Tuesday morning in Kahnawake, Que. at the tournament, featuring players from around the country born between 1993 and 1999. Beadman-Rolph, who attended Columneetza secondary until this year when she earned a spot with the Prince George Major Midget Female Cougars, has been assigned as a defenceman for Team B.C. Brenner, a goaltender for Team B.C., began his tournament Tuesday morning against the defending champions, Saskatchewan, where Team B.C. stormed to a 5-4 win — handing the prairie province it’s first loss at the tournament in five years. Brenner attends Columneetza Secondary School and spent last season with the Williams Lake Midget Tier 2 Timberwolves — earning his spot on the Team B.C. as one of about 80 players who tried out at the selection camp in Williams Lake. Beadman-Rolph also landed her

Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer A lakecity darts player is continuing his bid for a bull’s-eye at the National Youth Dart Championships. Dustin Sarnowski, along with Darts BC coach Wayne O’Neil, are hoping to travel to St. John’s, Nfld. from May 15-19 for nationals, after Sarnowski finished first in the junior boys division at

the B.C. Youth Provincial Dart Championships in April. To help cover the cost of the trip the duo will host a pair of fundraising events this weekend. The first, on Saturday, May 3 at Save On Foods, is a youth barbecue. O’Neil said they’ll have hot dogs, balloons and a jelly bean guessing game. Additionally a spe-

cial guest, Bryce Book — the eighth ranked darts player in the country and 2012 provincial men’s champion — is travelling from Kamloops to show his support to Sarnowski and O’Neil. “We’ll be chatting with people and explaining a bit about darts and things like that,” O’Neil said. Sunday, May 4, the trio will be at the Overlander Pub at the

Ramada Inn putting on a darts exhibition for anyone interested. “Bryce will be taking on all challengers who donate $5 to our youth darts B.C. fund,” O’Neil said. “He’s taking time off work to come up here so that’s pretty cool for him to do this. “He’s a past provincial youth champion himself so he wants to help out the youth cause.”

play in goal for Team Interior at the BCLA midget main camp in Ladner May 31 to June 2. The quartet travelled to Armstrong last weekend to take part in the regional selection camps. At provincials both the bantam and midget divisions will see teams square off in a tournament, where rosters will then be whittled down to compose B.C.’s team for the upcoming National Lacrosse Championships in August.

Sixty players and eight goalies will be showcased in each division at provincials, but just 18 players and two goalies will move on to form Team B.C. at nationals. This year’s bantam nationals go in Winnipeg, Man., while the midget nationals take place in Whitby, Ont. Regions represented at the provincial tournament include Team Vancouver, Team Interior, Team Island and Team Fraser Valley.

Taseko-Gibraltar celebrate mining in the Cariboo Brian Battison

Special to The Tribune Mining Week is a chance to reflect on what mining has meant to the Cariboo, to celebrate its history, and to consider the great untapped potential it still holds. Mining holds a special place in the Cariboo’s history. It was the Cariboo Gold Rush in the 1850s that brought a certain type of person to the region — rugged and confident. They were in search of new opportunity, seeking to build a new life, full of hope and promise. Many of them stayed. They began ranching and logging, building homes and creating

communities and built the region into what it is today. These same values and principles endure and are present in the Cariboo population today. The Cariboo is now home for nearly 700 Taseko-Gibraltar employees, their families and their friends. They too are committed to the Cariboo and share those values and the spirit of hard work and sense of accomplishment. Taseko’s commitment to the region began when the company took over Gibraltar and started production in 2004. Taseko’s $700 million investment, over the years 2006 to 2013, represents a commit-

ment to our employees, our suppliers, the communities in which we operate, and our province. Our employees are raising their families, buying homes, and spending their money, all of which contributes to the strength and growth of our economy. From a provincial perspective, the new investment at Gibraltar has resulted in real GDP increasing by $163 million, consumer spending increasing by $96 million and increasing residential investment by $29 million. The investment has generated an additional $68 million in federal government revenues and $62 million in provincial government revenues.

And the spinoff benefits continue. The company’s hire and buy local policy has resulted in Gibraltar spending more than $92 million buying goods and services in the region in 2012 alone. The company’s commitment to the Cariboo has helped contribute to more than $1.3 million to regional charities and community groups from Gibraltar Mine and Taseko since 2005. Taseko’s proposed New Prosperity goldcopper mine project, offers further potential benefit for the region. New Prosperity is expected to create 1,200 new jobs during construction and operation of the mine, and addi-

tional reclamation and monitoring jobs after the mine closes. Also, it will inject billions of dollars into the local, regional and na-

tional economies over the 20 year mine-life. Mining’s long and enduring history in the Cariboo is one to be proud of. And the future

looks equally bright as mining and resource development has the potential to continue to drive wealth and economic benefits.

Mining week 2013

Students explore mining jobs at Gavin Lake Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer A GPS treasure hunt, mine tour and gold panning are just three of the activities planned for a unique adventure camp for Grade 8 students this June to learn more about careers in mining. The venture is called Cariboo Chilcotin Explore for More Youth Camp of Discovery and takes place at Gavin Lake Education Camp from June 24 to 27. The free, four-day camp will introduce students to the exciting world of mining and all that it has to offer, says Corry Williams, the youth camp co-ordinator. Some of the activities planned include a GPS treasure hunt, a mine tour, swimming, archery, heavy equipment demonstration, panning for gold and a mock mine rescue. There are a limited number of spots for the camp with registration required by no later than June 3. “The camp is a pilot project and is being funded by BC HR Task Force,” Williams says. “The camp is co-ordinated by Thompson Rivers University and an advisory board that includes School District 27 along with industry partners who are a huge help in organizing the fun

demonstrations that the kids will be taking part in during the four-day camp,” Williams says. “It is focused on the Grade 8 students going into Grade 9. “The purpose of the camp is to introduce the kids to the vast array of opportunities in the mining industry, so that the kids and parents can make more informed choices when it comes time for career planning and course selection in grades 10-12.” She says B.C. statistics reported that, in 2010, the B.C. minerals industry provided 11,500 direct jobs and 34,500 indirect jobs. “The mining industry has hundreds of jobs to offer and our goal is

to introduce the kids to some of those jobs and to make them aware of how many others there are, in a fun and interactive way,” Williams says. “The pay scales for the jobs related in mining range from $40,000 up to $125,000 and higher per year. Accountant, biologist, bucker/core splitter, business analyst, cable bolter, carpenter, cook, diesel engine mechanic, heavy duty mechanic, heat/vent/cooling mechanic, gas fitter, geologist, geophysicist, GIS specialist, leach plant operator, legal secretary, machinist, millwright, metal fabricator, mining technologist, mobile crane operator, payroll administrator, heavy

equipment operator, driller, pressure washer, plumber, prospector, water/sewage treatment operator, welder, warehouse worker, senior design draftsperson, purchasing agent, surveyor, systems analyst and support worker are just some of the many jobs in mining listed in the Careers in the Minerals Industry brochure. To register for the camp call the mining youth camp co-ordinator Corry Williams at 250392-8101 or email The event is co-sponsored by Taseko/Gibraltar; Finning; Mount Polley; School District 27; Thompson Rivers University and the BC HR Task Force.

Mining week 2013

Woodjam project drilling results look promising The 2013 drilling program has just started on the 56,500-hectare Woodjam project located 50 kilometres east of Williams Lake near the town of Horsefly, the company reports. Mineralization at Woodjam consists of gold, copper and molybdenum. The Woodjam project was very busy in 2012 and work completed on the Woodjam South and Woodjam North properties included 114 diamond drill holes totalling 36,623 metres. Woodjam is a joint venture between Gold Fields Horsefly Exploration Corporation, a subsidiary of South Africanbased multinational Gold Fields Limited who own 51 per cent and Consoli-

dated Woodjam Copper Corporation who own the remaining 49 per cent. Consolidated Woodjam Copper is a Vancouver-based company that trades on the TSX-Venture Exchange under the symbol WCC. Joint Ventures such as at Woodjam are common in mineral exploration because they help spread the risk so more than one company shares the burden of funding exploration and development. In this case, Consolidated Woodjam Copper brought in Gold Fields in 2009 to help fund the project in a difficult market under an option deal arrangement. To make this possible, the Woodjam property

was divided into North and South with two separate option agreements. Gold Fields has already earned its 51 per cent interest by spending $14.6 million over the past four years. Gold Fields may earn up to a 70 per cent interest in both properties by spending $12 million and $8 million U.S. over a four year period that started in early 2012, on the Woodjam North and Woodjam South properties respectively. In addition, Gold Fields is required to complete a comprehensive feasibility study on the Woodjam South property. Consolidated Woodjam Copper will retain a 30 per cent interest in

both Woodjam North and Woodjam South. Gold Fields is currently undertaking a review of the project with resource estimates and associated studies on some of the porphyry centres completed on an internal basis. This work is expected to be completed in the next month or two and will influence project exploration strategy. While the engineering work is being done, this season’s program has just started with approximately 4,000 metres of diamond drilling within the Woodjam South project area. This is expected to take approximately two months to complete. The Woodjam prop-

erty currently hosts five gold-copper-molybdenum mineralized zones. The zones consist of Southeast, Deerhorn, Megabuck, Takom and Three Firs. In addition, the prop-

erty holds upside potential of more discoveries as drilling continues. On the Woodjam South property, the Southeast Zone was discovered in late 2007 and the best hole graded 0.69

per cent Cu and 0.27 g/t Au over its entire length (359.1 m), including 200.8 m grading 1.01 per cent Cu and 0.44 g/t Au. See WOODJAM Page A23

Mining week 2013 Gibraltar/Taseko partner with BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association Michelle Nahanee BC AMTA Taseko Mines has been partnering with BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association (BC AMTA) to support the training of First Nations people in First Nation communities where Taseko operates. “Taseko is committed to supporting and encouraging community development programs,

which includes education, training, employment and business development,” says Christy Smith, Taseko’s manager of community and Aboriginal affairs. “We want to play an integral role in building capacity and supporting the training of the First Nations in our operating area.” One of Taseko’s first hires from BC AMTA is

Lance Williams was one of Taseko’s first hires from the BC AMTA program and is from the Xat’sull First Nation.

Lance Williams, from the Xatśūll First Nation. Williams started recently and says he’s enjoying the work environment and opportunity to have full-time work after being a seasonal fire fighter. Williams adds BC AMTA’s training has played a critical role in helping him overcome barriers in his life, particularly drugs. Williams used to be dependent on smoking marijuana. However, thanks to BC AMTA’s focus on life skills, which included providing a life coach for additional support, Williams is setting new priorities. He’s no longer smoking pot, and believes opportunities are available to him, an achievement he credits to BC AMTA’s operations manager Leonard Jackson.

Woodjam research continues Continued From Page A22 In March 2012, shortly after Gold Fields earned in, a NI 43-101 compliant resource was issued for the Southeast Zone of 146.5 million tonnes at 0.33 per cent copper for 1.06 billion pounds of copper. This resource, being “pit-constrained,” takes into account many engineering and economic parameters which reduces the published size but makes it a more practical number as opposed to a “universal resource” that some companies publish. On Woodjam North, the Deerhorn Zone is an important focus with 9,765 m drilled in 2012 with an intercept that year grading 0.32 per cent Cu and 0.12 g/t Au over 379 m. This zone holds great promise and there is room for expansion with more drilling. Porphyry copper-goldmolybdenum projects such as Woodjam are generally of a grade and depth that can be mined economically in an open

pit, similar to Taseko’s Gibraltar mine and Imperial Metals Mt. Polley Mine. If Woodjam evolves into a producing mine, it will be a great benefit for the Horsefly and Williams Lake areas since they often run for 20 to 30 years.

“I feel a lot better now,” says Williams, adding he hopes to work with Taseko for years to come. Smith adds Taseko recognizes the barriers that face applicants at Gibraltar Mines, which include education, driver’s licences and life skills. Through partnerships between the local First Nations and BC AMTA, Taseko is able to support individuals like Williams to overcome barriers and be successful. “It’s been a fantastic relationship with BC AMTA, and we look forward to continuous success. Williams is the first of many BCAMTA hires that will be a part of the Taseko-Gibraltar team,” Smith says. On Feb. 27, 37 candidates graduated from BC AMTA’s Mining Skills for an Entry-level Workforce program. Some

job-seeking skills, along with an opportunity to earn more than a dozen industry certifications such as First Aid, Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), and forklift

operation. Sharon McLeod, BC AMTA regional manager, BC Northeast, explains their unique approach. See WORKING Page A24

Mining week 2013

Pilot projects put secondary students in mines

Gordon Armour

Special to The Tribune In response to an increasing level of skill shortages and to build career awareness among youth in the mining industry, The BC Mining HR Task Force is under-

taking a pilot program in secondary school work experience for senior students interested in seeking careers in the mining industry. This pilot program has been, and continues to be delivered by School District 27 in partnership with Mount

Training in action

Polley Mines and Taseko Gibraltar Mine. In the past year and half, the district has had students on work experience with the mines in the areas of engineering, welding, millwright, mechanics and machinist. Under the pilot, the district is to report

out to the Task Force and provide a best practices manual that can be used in other jurisdictions. An interim report was made to the fall meetings of the HR Mine Managers and Mine Managers provincially. Youth

Thompson Rivers University Aboriginal mining training students participate in a traffic control training exercise with instructor Sue Gunn (second from left).

Working to remove barriers “We aim to take away any barriers a student might have to attending training,” McLeod says. “It might be child care for a single mom or maybe it’s providing that safe place to learn every day where they have a hot meal and or transportation to and from the program. “If you take all those barriers away, provide a scheduled time for pickup and a hot lunch, the students experience success.” All they need, she says, is the will to “make a change in their life.” And they are, over 500 Aboriginal candidates have achieved employment throughout BC. In three fast years, BC AMTA has partnered with government, First Nations and the BC Mining industry to support, train and recruit Aboriginal people. On March 20, 2013 they reached a milestone of placing 500 men and women from First Nations communities across the province into sustainable mining-related ca-

pursued by School District 27. Under a pilot project endorsed by the BC Mining HR Task Force, the school district has entered into an agreement with Gibraltar Mine and Mount Polley Mine and

their respective unions to provide opportunities for secondary students to undertake Secondary School Apprenticeship at the two mine sites. See MINES Page A25

Apprenticeship Pilot As the issues of an aging workforce and related skill shortages evolve, the initiation of innovative recruitment and training plans for young people in high school career preparation programs is being

reers. BC AMTA has set in motion an achievable process that proves a new way of doing business with First Nations is possible. “Understanding the needs, motivations and challenges of our partners and candidates has brought us to this milestone” said Laurie Sterritt, BC AMTA’s CEO. “While every workplace and every community is unique, our dedicated staff have been able to adapt their approach to

ensure we maintain high quality training that is both respectful and flexible. Our candidates become confident and wellprepared for the mining and exploration industries.” Currently, BC AMTA is offering HEO training in Williams Lake on a project that benefits the community as well as the candidates. It’s the type of multilayered community development project that the organization is hoping

to offer through its other offices as well, where candidates gain knowledge in a ITA-certified training program (one of two offered in BC) while also gaining work-expertise on an actual land development site. It’s truly win-win and it’s complicated but doable. To learn more about Taseko visit To learn more about BC AMTA visit www.

Mining week 2013 Mines deliver career info at schools Continued From Page A24 The goal of the training model being piloted is to ensure the successful outcome for student and employer. With such success, the training model can be used by mining companies and school districts in other regions of British Columbia. The agreement reached provides for school district students successfully completing ACE-IT programs with the district to access 480 work-based hours that is credited towards their apprenticeship. ACE-IT is the technical training students are enrolled in through the partnership with TRU campus in Williams Lake. The 480 hours was chosen as with these hours, students can receive dual credit, hours towards their apprenticeship and transfer hours to high school credit. The agreement reached with the parties provides for no guarantees of employment beyond the 480 hours, however, does provide a strong foundation for students to build upon. As with the work experience pilot the district will be providing a final report to the Mining Task Force at the end of the school year; however, both mines at this point have expressed the desire to continue with this opportunity for trade students in the district. A An interim report was made to the fall meetings of the HR mine managers and mine managers provincially. YES 2 IT The school district in partnership with Mount Polley Mine and Gibraltar Mine delivered another YES 2 IT program to 80plus Grade 8 students in February. YES 2 IT is a trade awareness program that provides younger students with the opportunity to be involved in activity session with trades persons. Students had the opportunity to spend a day rotating through activities in automotive mechanics, welding, heavy euty mechanics, carpentry, and millwright. The students worked with the post secondary students in training at TRU – Wil-

liams Lake and trades person from the two local mines. Yes 2 IT is a trades awareness program targeting students in grades 6-9, as well as their parents, educators and communities. The program provides an opportunity for youth to have an engaging, hands-on experience applying some of the skills used in a variety of trade occupations while making connections with tradespersons in their communities. In addition, classroom learning activities support the hands-on experience and parental involvement increases education about career opportunities in the trades. Heavy Metal Rocks School District 27 in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, the local mines and their equipment suppliers is hosting the third Heavy Metal Rocks event May 8 to 11 at the Centennial Gravel Pit in Williams Lake. The Heavy Metal Rocks project gives high school students the chance to try out various types of heavy equipment, and get an overview of the construction industry from representatives who also relay the important role that safety plays in their industry. The four-day project is open to 24, Grade 11 and 12 students in the district, and gives them the opportunity to work with heavy machinery common to the construction and road building industries under the direction of trained operators. There is no cost to students; the program is made possible by local companies who donate their time and equipment, and the assistance of the two mines. Before climbing into the equipment operator’s chair, students receive WHMIS training and their Level 1 Occupation First Aid certificate, and Construction Safety Training certificate from the Construction Safety Alliance. In addition, a WorkSafeBC prevention officer will guide students through a complete sitesafety orientation, and give them their own per-

sonal safety equipment. Trade Forums Both mines have been involved with the school district in the delivery of career infomatin at Trade Forums held during the year. The trade forums provide students with the opportunity to interact with certified trade persons for about 30 minutes in a forum setup. Students attending the

forums have the opportunity to connect with six different trade areas. Mining Week Taseko-Gibraltar Mine will be giving presentations to Earth Science and Geology classes at both Williams Lake Secondary and Columneetza Secondary schools, during Mining Week. They will also be manning hallway displays at noon.

Cookbook contributors meet at potluck dinner Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune The Seniors Activity Centre was the perfect venue for spicing up the Cariboo on Saturday, April 27, with a multicultural potluck and the launching of a brand new ethnic recipe book. A capacity crowd of mixed ages and cultural backgrounds came together to share the food of their various homelands, and to purchase copies of Spicing Up the Cariboo that many of them had a hand in creating. Spicing Up the Cariboo: Characters, Cultures & Cuisines of the Cariboo Chilcotin is more than just a cookbook. Each of the 49 people who contributed recipes also shared stories of their lives and cultural origins and how they came to choose the Cariboo Chilcotin as their home. All three of the region’s First Nation tribal groups are represented in the book with recipes and stories of the Secwepemc, Tsilhqot’in and Dakelh (Southern Carrier). Susan Hance (Dakelh), George Keener (Secwepemc/Tsilhqot’in), Meline Myers (Tsilhqot’in) and Andrea Thomas (Secwepemc) shared recipes of foods indigenous to this region. Soopallalie ice-cream, Saskatoon pudding, half-dried meat on a stick, moose tripe, bannock and cedar plank salmon. For the potluck Meline brought a delicious juice made from chokecherries, Saskatoon berries and Labrador tea. Other food prepared from the traditions around the world, was also enticing. Busilak “Bea” Dodd brought a Filipino pork adobo dish for people to enjoy. Kusum Wijesekera, brought a delectable potato dish from her native Sri Lanka. Manola Khounviseth shared food from her Laotian tradition. Anne Burrill represented the Korean tradition of her children Amelia and Finn, with a delicious Korean fruit salad. Ollie Martens wowed the eaters with her Ukrainian borscht. Cathie Allen, who painted the still life portrait of vegetables for the book cover, and shared Italian recipes from her mother-in-law in the book, very likely brought a delicious green salad. I’m not sure and kind of lost track, but Cathie and her husband, Rob Borsato, own one of the best market gardens in the Cariboo At the conclusion of the potluck celebrated by the contributors to the book, the doors were thrown open for the general public. Authors, Tom Salley, Margaret-Anne Enders and Marilyn Livingston shared their experiences

Redstone elder celebrates 93rd birthday Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune

Sage Birchwater photo

Yellicy Hunlin greets great granddaughter Briseis Johnny along with great grandson Isaiah Gregg and granddaughter Alita Johnny.

The family of Yellicy Hunlin invited people from near and far to join them in celebrating Yellicy’s 93rd birthday on April 18 at Redstone Flats in the Tsi Deldel community. A big potluck dinner was held along with games for young and old and time to socialize. Chief Percy Guichon said Yellicy is the oldest member of the Tsi Deldel community still living at Redstone. She was born on April 18, 1920 at Bendzi (Puntzi) Lake. Her mother was Margaret (Maggie)

Music played for book launch Continued From Page A27 Another table had a cultural mix of Jamaican, British and Danish. While book contributor, Sharon Rathor, couldn’t make the celebration because she was busy cooking for the Vaisakhi Day feast, her husband, long-time city councillor, Surinderpal Rathor, attended on her behalf. He and regional director Deb Bischoff took the opportunity to pose for a photograph together. A real highlight of the book launch was the contribution made by a handful of homeschooled kids, Lucas and Jamie Kranabetter, Timu and Ella Kruus, Sam Buhler, Wilson

and Ascher Wedel, and Amelia Burrill. They created personal name tags for each of the participants in the cook book by drawing the flags of the various nations they stemmed from. This was a home school project, explained Margaret-Anne Enders. “The kids had to research the flags and then draw them. They virtually travelled around the world. Each family took turns hosting the kids and taking them on a trip to a different country.” Bettina Schoen, manager of the multiculturalism program for the Cariboo Chilcotin branch of Canadian Mental Health Association, was master of ceremonies for

the book launch. She says the intent of the project was to embrace the cultural diversity of the community. She commended the local CMHA board for supporting such an unusual project. “This was a unique project bringing together a large diverse group of people in a simple way, through food and personal stories.” To put a final touch on the evening, Tom Salley was joined on stage by his musical colleagues Ann Smith and Troy Forcier, who call themselves, Big Twang Daddy, and they entertained with some lively acoustic music.

Charleyboy and her father was Timothy Baptiste Stillas. Some of Yellicy’s brothers adopted the last name of Timothy while others took the last name of Baptiste from their father. Of course when Yellicy married Tommy Joe Hunlin the question of whether she was a Baptise or Timothy became a moot point. Yellicy and Tommy

Joe had six daughters and two sons, Edna Lulua, Lina Williams, Dora Grinder, Maryanne Boyd, Alice Johnny, Gloria Hunlin, Roger Hunlin and Norman Hunlin. Yellicy’s offspring have given her 30 grandkids, 31 great grandkids, and two great great grandchildren and counting. Yellicy’s youngest brother, Dominic Bap-

tiste was on hand to wish his sister and happy birthday.

Pictured in a scene from Over the River and Through the Woods are Sylvia Swift (Aida), left, Curt Sprickerhoff (Nunzio), Kara Pare (Caitlin), Cathie Hamm (Emma), Michael Rawluk (Frank), and Chris Armstrong (Nick). The play started Wednesday evening and runs at the Studio Theatre this week and next week. Tickets are available at the Open Book and About Face Photography.

New play a heartwarming family production Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Over the River and Through the Woods sounds like the opening to a Little Red Riding Hood story and while it is a family story about grandparents and their offspring, this title belongs to a play that evokes both laughter and heartwarming tears, says director Tony Savile. “There is a good deal of humour throughout the play, but it is also very touching, about family relations,” Savile says. “On the surface it is a comedy but it goes much deeper. A few people say they have shed a tear.” The play is set in New Jersey where the grandparents of a single Italian-American youth, Nick, are trying to keep him from moving across the country to take his dream job in Seattle. They introduce Nick to a girl they know in hopes the two will fall in love and Nick will find a job closer to home. Nick’s own parents have already retired and moved to Florida, but the youth still visits both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. “This is routine until he has to tell them that he’s been offered a dream job,” Savile says. “The job he’s been waiting for — marketing executive — would take him away from his

beloved, but annoying, grandparents. “He tells them. “The news doesn’t sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. “Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely — and single — Caitlin O’Hare as bait … we won’t give the ending away here,” Savile says. Savile says the production includes several newcomers to the Studio Theatre stage and several veteran actors who have all have been great to work with. Chris Armstrong plays the grandson Nick. Kara Pare plays Caitlin, the young woman the grandparents are trying

to hook him up with so that he won’t take a job far from home. Grandparents are played by Michael Rawluk (Frank), Curt Sprickerhoff (Nunzio), Cathie Hamm (Emma), and Sylvia Swift (Aida). Rawluk and Sprickerhoff are veterans of theatre and have been in many plays. “I’ve wanted to work with both of them for a long time,” Savile says. Pare has played animals and inanimate objects such as a stove in school and Studio Theatre productions in the past, but this is her first time playing a human. Although just 16, Savile says Pare plays a 25-year-old girl admirably.

Hamm has worked back stage on several productions in the last few years and this will be her first venture onto the stage in an acting role. Savile says he was surprised and delighted with Hamm’s performance when she showed up for the auditions. Swift, formerly a professional stage manager in Vancouver, is returning to acting after a couple of years working behind the scenes on Studio Theatre productions. Armstrong is new to the Studio Theatre. This will be his first time on stage since high school 15 years ago. The back stage crew includes Therisa Peimer, stage manager;

Maggie Pugh is looking after costumes, front of house, and prompting actors during rehearsal; Stacey Poirier is the designated theatre guru; Sharon Hoffman and Mackenzie Moore are in charge of make-up; Carla Friesen-Martin handles the props; Dani Peimer, sound technician; Shane Tollefson, lighting technician. Over the River and Through the Woods by Joe DiPietro, is the Studio Theatre’s latest offering on stage May 1 to 4 and May 8 to 11. Tickets for the production are available at The Open Book and About Face Photography. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the shows start at 8 p.m. sharp.

“They call the Cariboo home” Vivian Macneil and Reg Norberg to receive Diamond Jubilee awards Photo submitted

LeRae Haynes

This picture was taken in 1989 of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139 past presidents. Pictured are E. Laughington (left), A. McMath, T. Rhodes, R. Norberg, M. Stewart, H. Lambe, V. Macneil, and C. Agar. This Saturday evening Macneil and Norberg will be receiving Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Awards during a special event at the Williams Lake legion hall.

Special to The Tribune Two local residents with strong Legion connections are being honoured on Saturday, May 4 at the Royal Canadian Legion in Williams Lake for their volunteer efforts over the years. Reg Norberg and Vivian Macneil will receive the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubliee Award at a free community celebration that includes a medal presentation, food and dancing to live music. Legion Zone Commander and long-time volunteer, Vivian Macneil has been nominated for the award by the BC/Yukon Command of the Royal Canadian Legion for her outstanding commitment to volunteerism at the 139 Legion in Williams Lake, where she is a ‘Life Member.’ A daughter of a veteran, she joined the Legion in 1972 and has served six terms as president in Williams Lake, and has been Cariboo Zone Commander for eight years. She was recently elected by acclamation for another twoyear term. She is the long-term care surveyor for Veterans Affairs Canada. “I get to go to longterm care facilities and hospitals and interview veterans. I’ve met cowboys, teachers, artists—it’s amazing,” she said, adding that the purpose is to make sure they’re well cared for and that their families are happy with the care they’re receiving.” Because of her catering experience she was a natural at running the legion kitchen for seasonal events, lunches, steak nights, Remembrance Day ceremonies, Vimy Ridge events, and was in charge of organizing BC Northern Games lunches at the legion,

feeding 1,500 people. As zone commander Macneil visits each branch from Wells to Clinton – often traveling long distances in winter conditions. She mentors new executive members, advises when problems arise and attends special events. She represents all Cariboo zone branches at Command executive meetings and at BC/Yukon Command and Dominion conventions. Service officer for the local legion, she assists veterans and spouses in need, and as acting branch padre. She makes arrangements and performs legion services at veterans’ and members’ funerals. Macneil is a lover of all things Scottish, and organizes the annual Robbie Burns event, helps with ceilidhs and is a strong supporter of the Williams Lake Pipe Band. Legion president at the inception of the pipe band, she has been a staunch supporter from day one, working to not only provide a rehearsal space at the legion for the band, but also to ensure that there is fi-

nancial support for the band as it grows and expands. She organized the Legion Children’s Christmas party for more than 25 years, purchasing presents for all the kids, arranged meals and live entertainment. “I loved that these little people are going to grow up with good ideas about the legion,” she said. In 2003 she was awarded the legion meritorious service medal and in 2009 received the ‘Palm Leaf’ for her continued dedication to the legion. The ‘Spinoza Bear’ project was brought to the local legion thanks to her efforts – a program that provides a beautiful stuffed bear to a child who has gone through a traumatic experience. The bear is customized to each child with a recording done by the child’s mom or dad to offer encouragement and comfort. She said that it was a “special bear for a special girl.” “It would mean the world to me for the community to come and share in this cel-

ebration,” she said. “This is more than about a person getting an award; it’s about how a legion has touched a community.” Reg Norberg will receive the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee medal, after being nominated by Legion Branch 139, based on volunteer endeavors for his community. In 1947 Norberg worked with the War Memorial Arena Society in building the ice arena for skaters and the Williams Lake Stampeders Hockey Club where he played from 1950 to 1961. He joined the Knights of Columbus in 1951 and retired a life member. Norberg joined the Williams Lake Fire Department in 1953, eventually becoming assistant fire chief. In 1956-1957 he joined the Rocky Mountain Rangers, and in 1961 he and his mother became business owners when they started Norberg and Matheson Insurance. He was a life member of the Kiwanis Club, serving as president in 1967 and 1982.




1-778-412-VOTE (8683) Authorized by Bill Robertson, Financial Agent, 250-395-4302

Between 1966 and 1979 he coached minor hockey, baseball and football, helped develop the Williams Lake Gold Club in 1967 and was the director of the Insurance Agents Association of BC from 1973-1974. Norberg joined the Legion Branch 139 in 1977, serving as president twice, and as both zone chair and zone commander. Between 1977 and 1978 he served on Williams Lake City Council, Downtown Business Association and Chamber of Commerce boards and was involved with 4-H. He was the director of the Lac La Hache Fire Department in 1996 and has been on the Terra Ridge Strata Council since 2005. “Congratulations, Reg,” his legion supporters and friends say. “You’re a true son of Williams Lake.” All are welcome to attend the upcoming event at the legion on Saturday, May 4 at 5:30 p.m., where there will be a cold buffet and dancing to Perfect Match.
