Bob Simpson was re-elected as the MLA for Cariboo North on May 12, 2009. He was first elected to the Legislature in 2005 and he began sitting as an Independent MLA in December of 2010. Born in Scotland, Bob’s family immigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1967 and he moved to British Columbia in 1974 when he joined the Canadian Navy. He has two undergraduate degrees and a Teaching Certificate from the University of Victoria. Bob is married to Trish (née Havens) whose family has lived in Quesnel since 1964. Bob and Trish moved to Quesnel in 1985 to teach, Bob at Quesnel Secondary School and Trish at Dragon Lake Elementary. Bob became Science Department Head at QSS before leaving to start his own businesses. While he was teaching, Bob wrote a weekly column on sustainability issues for the Cariboo Observer, developed a Grade 11 and Grade 12 forestry course and designed an innovative self-directed study program for high-achieving students in Grade 11. He also helped to set up what is now known as the Fraser Basin Council. After teaching, Bob ran a successful consulting business in the areas of community, business and human resource development. He also founded a training company that specialized in helping people to start their own businesses; many of those people are still successfully running their business today. In the mid-1990s, Bob dabbled in retail in Quesnel. He opened Fundamentals, The Learning Support Store, a toy, games, puzzles and teaching supply store. Together with a business partner, he purchased a downtown Quesnel

shoe store. In 1996, Bob joined Weldwood of Canada and eventually became the company’s Corporate Manager for Organizational Effectiveness and Leadership Development. His main responsibilities with Weldwood were to develop the company’s technical and supervisory training systems, ensure capital investments were maximized through appropriate training and teambased management systems and assist the company to successfully implement company-wide change initiatives. In 2004, Bob decided to enter politics due to his increasing concern that we were living unsustainably and his belief that the hyper-politicization of our representative system was undermining our ability to make meaningful decisions for the long term. While in Opposition, Bob became a high-profile critic for Forestry and, following the 2009 election, Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation. In 2010, Bob was ejected from the NDP Caucus for writing two sentences in his weekly column about a speech that the NDP leader had given to the Union of BC Municipalities. He then made the decision to leave the political party system altogether and has been sitting as an Independent ever since. Bob is a vocal advocate for electoral and democratic reform and, along with BC’s other Independent MLAs, he has presented an agenda for reform that would go a long way toward revitalizing B.C.’s democratic system. Bob is a former National Triathlon Champion in his age group and was named BC’s Male Triathlete of the Year in 2002. He is also an avid cyclist, runner, sailor and kayaker.

Oakes looking to win seat

Meet Coralee Oakes - Biography Generations of my family have lived in and loved Cariboo North. I feel privileged to have grown up on our family farm that my great grandparents homesteaded in 1933. Our region is blessed with inspiring families, businesses and individuals who are hard working, devoted and proud.  Our region plays a critical role in the economic health and well being of the Province of British Columbia and there is urgency to diversify, support investment and attract a highly skilled workforce to ensure that our communities move forward successfully.   We have only a few years to get this right and I intend to bring this message to Victoria. A passionate and positive voice is needed and bold action is required to ensure that our message and issues are heard.  We need to ensure that we are supporting our aging demographic.  I will be an advocate for providing preventative support that helps support seniors living healthy and  independently in their homes longer and I will champion innovative ways that we can better assist the transition of senior’s into long-term and residential care. I will work hard for you, your family and your businesses. Having served six years as a Quesnel City Councillor and fourteen years as Manager of the Quesnel & District Chamber of Commerce, I have a solid foundation and firm understanding of our region.  I have a  proven record at the community and provincial level bringing our rural voice to the table. I have strong relations with all levels of government and work well in a team environment, which is important to move important projects forward.  My experience

ELECTIONS 2013

A voice for the North Cariboo Barnett looking to win seat

My name is Duncan Barnett. I am applying for the job of MLA for Cariboo North. I am running for the BC NDP because I believe we can do better in this province – in terms of how we treat people, how we manage our economy and how we care for our environment. My wife Jane and I live at Miocene on the Horsefly Road in the family home I helped build as a teenager, where we have raised our three daughters Lindsay, Heather and Kate. We own and operate a ranching business in the Miocene / Horsefly area. My family has a solid background in Cariboo North. My grandfather was in the sawmill and lumber business and my father was a provincial court judge in Williams Lake and Quesnel. My mother was a teacher and counseling psychologist in the school district. I have worked in the region for much of my life - from the bunkhouse to the boardroom. Before going to university and getting a degree in agricultural economics, I explored the province and worked in almost all our natural resource sectors, including commercial fishing, logging, sawmills, guide outfitting, oil and gas drilling and ranching. I began working in the Cariboo as a professional agrologist in the early nineties with Ducks Unlimited, then with the Fraser Basin Council as a regional

coordinator. I was involved with treaty negotiations and took a position as manager of Aboriginal affairs for the Cariboo Lumber Manufacturers’ Association. I was taught that community service is important. I have been a 4H leader and served on my community association. I have also been active on several provincial industry and professional organizations which has provided me with experience and insight into natural resource legislation, regulation and policy. I was a Cariboo Regional District Director for the Horsefly, Likely, Big Lake, 150 Mile and Williams Lake Fringe area from 2000 until 2010. As an electoral area director, I built relationships and worked with municipalities and First Nations. The most satisfying part of

the job was working with communities on their initiatives for services, community halls, heritage and arts and culture.  My experience also taught me there is a necessary balance between being an independent advocate and being part of the team that gets things done. We made improvements to our recreation facilities, developed the Central Cariboo engineered landfill at Gibralter Mine and provided support for rural communities with community halls, fire departments, and libraries. We created policies for the development of agricultural land and initiatives to help producers deal with the BSE crisis and invasive plants. We implemented policies to ensure that residential development respects our valuable lakes, rivers and streams. I successfully encouraged the CRD Board to move into new areas such as economic development, heritage and arts and culture. I am a social progressive, a fiscal conservative and an environmental steward. I think a modern government must have a vision that includes social, economic and environmental values, and a common sense plan with practical steps to realize that vision. This is what Adrian Dix and the NDP team are offering BC voters and I am looking forward to bringing a voice to Cariboo North.

ELECTION BC

North Cariboo candidates weigh in on hospice palliative care issues ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter

With the election just days away, issues, platforms and policies are flying around like leaves in a windstorm. One issue which has not had the same prominence in this campaign is hospice/ palliative care, an issue that affects every single individual on earth. Quesnel and District Hospice Palliative Care Association (QDHPCA) had booked a debate with the three Cariboo North candidates, but unfortunately that night the provincial leaders debate forced organizers in Quesnel to cancel the local event. Undeterred, QDHPCA pursued each candidate with a set of questions on the subject in order for this issue to reach the voters before voting day, May 14. To begin the conversation, the questionnaire laid out five areas beginning with each candidate’s impression of the government’s Endof-Life Care Action Plan, then moving to their take on the current attitude of the medical community towards trained hospice/palliative care volunteers and their role in end-oflife care. Equitable funding for hospice beds across the province and in various types of facilities was the next question, followed by the need for stronger legislation regarding advance directives. The final question addressed the issue of right patient in the right bed at the right time. Each candidate was asked to comment on all five hospice/ palliative care issues. • The provincial government has a provincial strategy and Action Plan for End of Life Care in B.C. Comments? BC NDP candidate Duncan Barnett The provincial strategy for End of

Life Care outlines important goals for improving the quality of life for those with life limiting illnesses – without any funding attached. A BC NDP government will improve the quality of care throughout B.C., ensuring the funding is in place each step of the way. We are committed to enhancing home support and prevention efforts for seniors and people with chronic disease along with increasing standards of care in residential care facilities; including more direct hours of care; and establishing more community-based clinics with multidisciplinary teams to strengthen primary healthcare. We will also establish an Independent Seniors’ Representative. Independent candidate Bob Simpson B.C.’s End-of-Care plan is comprehensive and holistic. Unfortunately, this plan is not sufficiently resourced and not available provincewide. We need to revisit this plan to make sure that rural areas of the province are provided with the resources and expertise to implement this plan. BC Liberal candidate Coralee Oakes My party and I recognize an increased focus on hospice and palliative care in B.C. is long overdue. The BC Liberal Government recently released an end-of-life Action Plan and I believe this plan will strengthen end-of-life care in BC. My party has made a commitment in our platform to double the number of hospice beds in B.C. by 2020. •Many within the palliative care organizations see that, in their daily operation within the health care system, they tend to be regarded more as fundraising agents rather than true

partners in care, partners who work along side health care providers and augment medical care. How will you and your party support an attitude shift regarding what could or should be the real role of palliative care societies in providing the best total end-oflife care to the people of B.C.? BC Liberal candidate Coralee Oakes Our commitment to double the number of hospice beds in B.C. by 2020 can’t be done entirely by government, which is why we will partner with hospice societies to achieve

this goal. The men and women who are part of palliative care societies are heroes and we need to find ways to ensure they are working to their full potential. BC NDP candidate Duncan Barnett Our plan includes investment in improvements to home support, residential and primary care – taking pressure off our hospitals. Reducing costs associated with acute care will mean more resources are available to invest in other levels of care such as end-oflife care. Providing adequate resources for health care would mean volunteers

could perform the work they volunteered (and were trained) to do, rather than spend their time fundraising. Independent candidate Bob Simpson More work needs to done with the medical community to educate them about the value of hospice and palliative care services for end-oflife care. The medical community must be helped to realize the benefits of having both volunteers and professional palliative care and the value of hospice facilities. These services are currently underutilized. see PAGE A15

Independents Provide Real Representation We live in a representative democracy. Theoretically, this means that British Columbians would elect the individual from their geographic area to become their MLA; a person that they believe can put constituent interests first and best represent and advocate for the needs of their riding in the creation of laws, public policy, and the annual provincial budget. BC’s 85 duly elected MLAs are supposed to go to Victoria and work together, collaboratively and collectively, to govern the province between elections. Through parliamentary committees they are supposed to be intimately involved in setting priorities and establishing laws, regulations, and policies that take into account the diverse nature of BC’s population and geography. Unfortunately, we’ve moved further and further away from this concept of representation and toward the hyper-partisan dictatorship of the premier’s office we see today. Government and opposition MLAs are subjected to stifling party discipline, and the Legislative Assembly has become a stage for partisan speeches instead of the chamber of reasoned debate it’s supposed to be. Every opposition party promises to improve this sorry situation, with slogans like “change for the better.” But once in power there is no impetus to take the steps necessary to ensure that every MLA can truly represent their constituents and British Columbians’ needs. We cannot regain the true nature and intent of our representative system by continuing to elect politicians who will be forced to put their party’s interests ahead of their constituents’ concerns. In this election there are more Independent candidates in BC than ever before. I believe this is both a sign of British Columbians’ dissatisfaction with party politics and an affirmation of the quality of representation that my Independent colleagues and I have been able to provide in the Legislature. We elect 85 MLAs from around the province so they can represent citizens, not political parties, in the difficult decisions that need to be made to govern wisely. As an Independent, I’ve cut through bureaucracy and fought for the best interests of the Cariboo.

Having more Independent MLAs in the BC Legislature is a good first step to holding both political parties to account while beginning the process of reforming our governance structures. Voting for a party MLA again won’t begin the real “change for the better” BC needs. As an Independent, I will continue to be a strong voice for the Cariboo in Victoria, and I’ll work every day to improve our democracy .www.reelectbob.ca

Relay for Life, an exciting family event

ith only two weeks to go until the 12th Annual Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life in Quesnel, the leadership team and Relay For Life participants are gearing up not just for a great day of fundraising, but for an exciting family event. We have a full slate of entertainers booked for the day, including dancers, singers, bands and even a Zumba class on the stage. These great local entertainers are one of the highlights of Relay For Life as participants get to enjoy top-notch entertainment as they complete their laps around Lebourdais Park. We have several food vendors attending the event as well, so you will find everything you need for a great day out at Relay For Life. Relay For Life is a great place to get active and try some new activities. We have many midfield activities planned throughout the day and we invite everyone out to try belly dancing, Zumba, participate in a tugof-war or one of the other activities that will be happening. Those walking the track at Relay For Life won’t miss out on the fun, as we have several themed laps planned. For every themed lap you participate in, such as the three-legged lap or crazy hat lap, you will be able to enter your name in a draw for a fantastic prize. Keep in touch with your team mentors to find out what these themes will be and if you need to bring anything to participate in them. Relay For Life is also a perfect opportunity to learn about what the Canadian Cancer Society does and how you can reduce your own risk of cancer. Our prevention team will be out in the park meeting with

participants and teaching them about cancer prevention and providing resources to learn more. Many teams will be participating in mission delivery, providing information at their tents about different cancers and different programs of the Canadian Cancer Society. The team tents at Relay For Life are always a highlight of Relay. Each year teams decorate according to the theme and with “Time for a Cure” as this years’ theme, we are sure to have some unique designs. Although Relay For Life is a major fundraising event, we worked hard to make it something that everyone, from survivors to caregivers, from participants to people dropping by, can enjoy.

The government has downloaded services to volunteers and eliminated professional home support workers who are trained and accountable in dealing with the needs of seniors. Without proper home support, many seniors are needlessly forced into institutions.

Universal home support

COSCO is calling for universal home care and home support services, based on need, available seven days a week to seniors and people with disabilities. Such a service would allow thousands of seniors to live with dignity and respect in their own homes, close to families and friends. It would cost much less than acute or residential care. It would strengthen our overall public health care system by reducing the pressure on acute care hospitals. As a matter of both human decency and common sense economics, providing universal home support so people can remain in their own homes must be a priority for the next government of our province.

On May 14, please vote for a candidate who will respect seniors and their families by supporting universal home care and home support services

My mother’s smile

Friday, May 10, 2013 Quesnel Cariboo Observer

E

very Mothers’ Day, regardless of where I was, I would reach out to my mom. The sound of her voice warmed me right to my very soul. And if I close my eyes I can still see her smile. Oh, that smile. More than anything else in my life, my mother’s smile brings a flood of memories. The time she encouraged me to sit on Santa’s knee when I was just six, smiling as she guided me through the line. The time she watched me achieve some low-level figure skating certification – it might as well have been an Olympic medal. And later in life when I had children of my own, that same smile bathed my son in unspoken praise as he proudly played his saxaphone in the Grade 8 band. The smile when my middle son strapped on a tool belt just like his daddy. My youngest son still remembers fondly when his gramma sat in the audience during one of his performances, smiling all the time. By then she was starting to fade, her ability to distinguish between one grandson and the next, one daughter from a stranger, one nurse from another was diminishing. She could no longer attend those special occasions and her memory was pretty much gone. But her smile still sent a warm glow to my heart. It was still the same smile, still evoking the same love, trust, support and maternal bond I still treasure today, even though she’s been gone for three years. At the end, she spent most of her time sleeping, but when she’d open her eyes she would smile. Oh, that smile. It was my mom. For more than 60 years that smile lightened my day, soothed my sadness, laughed at my folly, validated my success, shared my blackest moments. When I need that smile, I just close my eyes and I can see her, smiling at me and its enough. Remember to call your mamma and if you can spend a moment, make her smile and bask in the glow of the most beautiful sight on the planet. –Annie Gallant, Quesnel Observer

For the love of Mom

ast week I saw an interesting post on Facebook titled: Seeking Kelowna, BC Firefighter named Brent. The 300 word post was written by a man named Tom Argall from Brampton, Ontario. He explained that his mother had just been visiting Kelowna and had tripped on a bit of raised sidewalk, falling hard, breaking her arm and bruising her face. Luckily an off-duty firefighter was driving by, stopped and came to her rescue.   Tom ended his post with this: “I want to thank Brent. I’m over two thousand miles away and I don’t know his last name, but I’m appealing to the six degrees of Facebook to send the message. “If you are reading this and you know a Kelowna, B.C. firefighter named Brent, please thank him for me. “Shake his hand, hug him, buy him a beer, whatever your preferred expression of

Lori Welbourne

On A Brighter Note gratitude may be. “Last Wednesday, wherever he was going, whatever he had planned for the day, whatever was happening in his own life was suddenly irrelevant and secondary to him because a total stranger needed help. We need more people like that in the world.” He posted his two paragraphs on Facebook a week after the accident on May 1. Before going to bed that night he was pleasantly surprised it had already been shared by 99 people. When he awoke in the morning he was amazed it had been shared over 250 times By May 3, his request had been shared by a whopping  2,400 people,

people on Facebook have shared a simple request of a son wanting to thank a stranger for helping his beloved mother. “Brent was a real hero,” Tom said. “ But so was everyone that helped. I’m very grateful to them all.” Human decency is alive and well in the world, and there are millions of examples of it being displayed every day. Unfortunately it’s the crazy, negative and tragic stories that get most of the press, which can give the impression we shouldn’t expect kindness and compassion from strangers. We should. The vast majority of us human beings are more loving than we think. Let’s open our eyes, and hearts, to that. And if anyone knows the nurse named Kim from Kelowna General Hospital who helped Tom’s mom, please let me know. He’d really  like to say thanks.   Lori Welbourne is a syndicated columnist.

and within an hour of me sharing it, Brent’s last name was revealed as Beselt.   But Tom already knew that, because, by then, he’d received a message from the man he was looking for. “I’m not on Facebook,” Brent said. “So I sent him a note through my wife’s account after being asked by so many people if it was me. “Even friends from Spain and Saskatchewan contacted us about his post. It was crazy. I was just doing what anybody would have done.” Tom was happy to hear from him. “I read his message to my mom and she cried,” he said. “In a good way.” The 77-year-old, now in a cast and recuperating nicely, was incredibly appreciative and touched by the kindness of a stranger. And not just one stranger, but many. A nurse had also stopped to help, and then later visited her in the hospital. There were others that offered assistance too. And now over 2,700

Supporting Simpson Editor: As a former federal NDP candidate for Cariboo/PG, I experienced first-hand being hamstrung by a political party. I was told what to say on issues, not to present any of my own ideas and to always toe the party line. Unfortunately, this was at the peak of the beetle kill disaster in this area and my staff and I tried desperately to get some policy on the beetle kill issue from the federal NDP in Ottawa. Although I was constantly being questioned about the issue on the street and at forums, there was nothing I could say. No policy on the beetle kill came before election day and, quite frankly, it was embarrassing. Candidates and elected representatives must have the

Letters to the Editor

freedom to speak out and for this reason I wholeheartedly support our independent candidate for Cariboo North. As a resident of Quesnel, I have been impressed by the hard work of Bob Simpson’s office and by Bob in particular. He’s worked on behalf of all the residents of the riding, especially those in need of serious help, regardless of their political views, personal priorities and beliefs. And no MLA has worked harder for the benefit of all of the residents of BC to keep us informed on important issues. For all of these reasons, I am proud to support Bob Simpson, independent candidate for Cariboo North. Alfred Trudeau Quesnel

Liberals on right track Editor: Hopefully people will remember what the 10 plus years under the NDP were like. I, for one, have not forgotten. I sure don’t want to go down that road again. Eight years of deficit budgets, major job losses. I believe Glen Clark was entrepreneur of the year for Alberta. I wonder why. No money for health care; roads were ignored. The NDP declared a freeze on educational, health and other facilities. G.R. Baker had major hospital bed closures. Remember the billboards up North – NDP – No – Doctors –Practise here, I wonder why. Every tax they could find they raised, MSP, ICBC, income tax, to name a few. The Mountain Pine beetle – for over seven years they

wouldn’t listen and allowed forest health management in the Parks to control it. Look what happened. Now let’s think about the past 10 years. Lower taxes, Triple A credit rating back, new CNC Campus in Quesnel, a new trades Center, training apprentices for the future. A new cancer facility in the North. There are many, many positives. Just stop and think about it. B.C. is a good place to call home, let’s keep it that way. Let’s not repeat the 90s, no jobs, no resource development, no new hospitals, increased taxes, deliberate deficit budgets. NDP: New Deficit Party. What about our children? Think about the future when you cast that ballot. B.C. is our home. John Reichert Quesnel

NDP Editor: I find some of the letters to the editor amusing when they start with not voting NDP and then refer to the 90s and BC Ferries as the reason. Many of us went through more than just the 90s and in comparison to the last 12 years they were a cake walk. CBC election reality reported that no government can control economic growth. World markets and commodity prices are the main factors driving the economy. See PAGE A10

Where will the money come from?

Great money managers, not

Editor: Everything I have read about the NDP is about increased funding, as of today, three billion dollars, where will the money come from? I for one know that any increase in spending definitely needs tax increases or revenues to pay for them. But on the other hand if we deficit finance it isn’t a problem – only for the future of our children and grandchildren. One thing that truly has me puzzled is that The Liberals brought in HST and anger was everywhere – yet, nothing illegal about bringing it in. Yet, my understanding is Dix forged a document, then admitted he did and it was so wrong! Well it should be. Considering we have a decision to make on May 14, every time I see an article in the paper the NDP are announcing more spending.

from A9 Proof is in the BC Business Council report on the economy over the past 30 years. The real question is did the Liberals manage our province to the best interests of the people? The facts speak for themselves. In 2001 they changed the forest act and turned control of our forest management to forest corporations and eliminated any connection between our forest and community stability while giving forest corporations a billion dollars in incentives. The result, over 70 manufacturing plants closed and thousands of good family supporting jobs lost. In the north over 2,500 forest jobs disappeared and with the Price Water House equation of indirect and induced jobs that’s 6,500, great so far. Now we look at the sale of BC Rail. They said they would not sell it but did and paid $6 million to shut down the investigation. BC Ferries and the Liberals’ lack of support and investment in our own ship building capacity on the

H’mm. Yet I feel they are sending mixed signals about being for or against the Enbridge’s Northern Gateway, Prosperity mine, the Kinder Morgan expansion, coal exports out of West Coast ports, a new Raven coal mine on Vancouver Island, and the Site C damn. I heard Dix, on the Bill Good Radio show, when asked he doesn’t even see the need for a referendum question on pipelines. Why not? Have you heard the NDP candidates in the North and South Cariboo speak any differently? So where will resource jobs come from if they oppose development? There happens to be a candidate running at the coast, an Executive Director of the Sierra Club, an employee of the David Buck Suzuki Foundation that I think should cause us concern. They even have campaign

teams comprised of strong environmentalists, not surprising. Perhaps they need to remember that the first dollar comes from resources. At least we in rural B.C. do understand where jobs and money come from. Remember the War of the Woods in the 90’s? Do you honestly think the NDP have any better memory about resource jobs today than they had in the 90’s? Think about that when you Vote. The focus should be on creating jobs, not NoNo-No. We need a strong economy for our children and grandchildren. If there aren’t jobs how will people manage to live? Perhaps the NDP don’t care about rural BC and resource jobs, only the concrete cappuccino drinking urban dweller. Well, we can always move to Alberta for work. Mary Glassford Quesnel

Our single greatest ally Editor: With an election around the corner, our board of directors and I thought this would be a good time to make the people of Quesnel aware of how much time and uphill effort Bob Simpson has put in trying to help small family businesses. The Independent Wood Processors Association (formerly the Independent Lumber Remanufacturers Association) has been representing BC’s family owned non-tenured wood processing companies since 1971. For us, the last decade has been a slaughter. In 2003 we had 107 member companies employing British Columbians in communities all around the province. Sadly, 48 of them have ceased operations since then. It would be easy to blame the US housing market crash for the failure of 45 per cent of BC’s family owned wood processors, but that is not the way our members see it. We aren’t in the structural framing business and when people can’t sell their house or afford to upgrade, they fix up or remodel the one they are in. There has always been enough business to be had in the USA for us to survive, but not when we have had to pay up to $75 per mfbm border tax to our own government for the last six years just because we employ British Columbians to add value to BC grown and competitively purchased wood fibre. We are the competitive

sector. We are the ones out beating the bush trying to find wood fibre for our plants in a province that is dominated by a few companies belonging to the increasingly consolidated non-competitive sector. We understand better than anyone why the Major Licensees don’t want to compete for their wood fibre and why they are willing to pay a US imposed penalty to continue to control a secure supply of administratively priced public wood fibre. What we don’t understand is why we, the competitive sector, have to pay part of that penalty for them. The $75/ mfbm border tax does what it was designed to do. That is to make our value added products uncompetitive in the US market. But $75/mfbm is also enough to pay the freight to China, where Chinese citizens can be employed to do what we used to do here and from where, that same BC wood fibre can then be sold to our former customers in the USA free from border tax and any of the other taxes we pay in Canada. So naturally, that’s where our raw material and work has been going. For the first time in 6 years, the tax has disappeared and subject to ongoing difficulties in finding enough wood to supply their plants, the survivors are beginning to prosper again. We don’t know if the tax will come back on or before October 12, 2015, but we do know that the agreement will expire then

and we hope that things will be done differently the next time around. We won’t get into forest policy changes like the loss of Section 21, the loss of the Small Business Forest Enterprise Program, the erosion of Category 2, the loss of appurtenance, the loss of cut control, tenure transferability, the Majors now having access to BCTS, the disqualification of first mill users from BCTS and the loss of open markets due to consolidation … but we would if we had more space. Suffice to say that we hope you understand our problems and we know that Bob Simpson understands our problems. Bob has been our single greatest ally in the B.C. Government and we appreciate it. He is the only MLA that has taken the time and trouble to come and sit in my living room on a Saturday afternoon and listen to me. And he knows I can’t even vote for him... but you can. The IWPA is a non-political group and we would be writing this regardless of which party, if any, that Bob might choose to align himself with. We are simply endorsing a man that we think BC’s family owned non-tenured wood processors need in Victoria. Russ Cameron President Independent Wood Processors Association More letters PAGE A12

coast of BC begs the question. Why were three new ferries not built in BC but in European shipyards for $542 million. Plus we have to buy all the parts from them. The reason they gave us this award: it was the best deal for the taxpayer. Really? I guess all the ship workers don’t qualify as taxpayers either? Just think about the benefit to the province when all the money earned is spent in B.C., not in Europe. So how is the $16 million spent on ads for the BC jobs plan working for you? Before you answer, add $11 million of tax payer money for a Bollywood film awards in Vancouver in April this year. It’s an endless list of colossal mismanagement of our money. Our debt is now doubled to over $60 billion and they want to put our hopes in more of the same for the next four years, oh yes, great money managers aren’t they welcome to today’s BC Liberals.

Quesnel Quilters Guild presents May our Scraps Disappear ANNIE GALLANT Observer Reporter

O

nce a quilter finishes another masterpiece, the leftovers are saved because you just never know when they might be the perfect addition to the next quilt. This month’s show at the Quesnel Art Gallery is titled May our Scraps Disappear. Quesnel Quilters Guild members were asked to utilize those myriad scraps to create a one-of-a-kind quilting project. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Quesnel Quilters’ Guild. Back in November 1983 a group of seven women, who shared an interest in quilting, fellowship, socializing and just getting to know each other, gathered to primarily exchange and encourage each other’s quilting. Now, Quesnel’s Quilters’ Guild includes 63 members encompassing all forms of quilting. At the group’s monthly meeting, members present demonstrations in all aspects of quilting. Each year they sponsor three workshops with outside instructors who teach different techniques and skills. The guild also hosts one show a year, with every third year being the large quilt show at the UNBC/CNC Quesnel campus. “Interest in quilting is growing by leaps and bounds,” Guild member Cyndi Myron said. She added almost a dozen new members joined this year alone. For the Scraps show, the only criteria was to use scraps; the rest was left to the quilter’s imagination and creativity. With 25 quilts in the show, May our Scraps Disappear showcases the work of at least a dozen guild members.

Also included in the show are many smaller quilting projects which began with a quilting exercise given to each guild member. “Everyone was given an inspirational word and a colour swatch, the rest was up to the quilter,” Myron said. “These quilting projects are scattered throughout the show.” Although the show is primarily for display and appreciation, some items are for sale and are so marked. Each quilter’s story is different, but for Myron she has been quilting for about 20 years. “I do it for the enjoyment and the peacefulness it affords me,” she said. “It’s an expression of my creativity and the joy the finished quilt brings someone else.” Myron employs an assortment of techniques and admits she loves learning new techniques. “It’s been fun learning machine quilting,” she said. “It’s like drawing with a sewing machine.” She remembers when she was a beginner and realized she could actually quilt. “Anyone can quilt, anyone can sew and anyone can choose colours,” Myron said. “It’s just putting together colours you like in a pattern which inspires you.” And as for joining the guild, Myron said it’s great because other, more experienced quilters are happy to provide assistance should you ask. Quesnel Quilter’s Guild meets from September to May, the first and third Tuesdays from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and the second and fourth Tuesday from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Arts and Recreation Centre. For information contact Cyndi, 250-9925658.

History of guilds Modern guilds evolved from the Medieval craft and merchant guilds. These organizations were an important part of Medieval life. They elevated the ordinary citizen just by their membership in the guild. For craft guilds, tradesmen or craftsmen engaged in the same occupation would join together for protection and mutual aid. There were rules set by the guild which determined the way trade was conducted as well as providing protection for horses, wagons and goods when moving about the land, as traveling during the Middle Ages was dangerous. Guilds also determined how a tradesman became a member, beginning with an apprenticeship which lasted between 5 – 9 years depending on the trade. The apprentice received no wages, just board, lodging and training and wasn’t allowed to marry until he reached the next phase, journeyman. A journeyman was paid for his labour. During this time he would create his masterpiece which he would present to the Craft Guild as evidence of his craftsmanship in the hope of reaching master level. Once a master, he could set up his own workshop and then train his own apprentices. Today, many of the principles established by the Medieval guilds are still the foundations of trade unions and guilds.

Vote for change for the better Welcome the HST. Because there was transitional payment of $1.6 billion to the B.C. Government, almost enough to make the budget not look as bad as it was. The Liberals in 2013 are the same Liberals that were in power in 2001. Who is doing the taxing and spending? What has Adrian Dix done, he back dated a memo in 1996. Adrian has taken responsibility for his actions.

lately: $6 million to fight the ANT-HST Citizens Initiative; $11 million for the India Film Awards; $6 million for Basi and Virk in the BC Rail scandal; $15 million since January 2013 for ads telling us what a great job the Liberals were doing with our money. Now who is more believable: Campbell  says “we will not sell BC Rail”, but he did:  2001 election, “we will not tear up contracts” but he did. In the 2009 election the B.C. budget was tooted at $485 million deficit – not one penny more.  It  turned out be almost $2 billion more.

the MSP premiums by 50 per cent, they then initiated the Carbon Tax which all of rural B.C. says is unfair to northern communities and it is. Then in 2009 they sprung the HST on us, after having said, prior to the 2009 election, that the HST was not on their radar. The government of B.C., with the HST, collected $800 million more than they would receive with the old PST. The HST was a tax shift from corporations onto ordinary taxpayers of B.C. They also increased taxes on used cars, boats, trailers, airplanes etc. Now look at some of the government expenditures

{

Editor: I see ads and articles on the NDP’s supposed “tax and spend plan,” but the Liberals are the “ good money managers.” The truth is that when Campbell formed government in 2001, the debt that the residents owed was $8,000 per capita; today the per capita debt in B.C. is $40,000 plus or minus, there are more residents  in B.C. now than in 2001. The give and take of Liberals goes like this: they gave a tax rebate of $2 billion plus or minus on the B.C. personal income tax then they sold BC Rail for $1 billion. They increased

To achieve good results, follow the script Editor: Re: Observer Feedback, May 3. I read letters on behalf of Bob Simpson and how he has an unfettered voice, because he is not dictated by party policies. How naïve is that? If you want things done it has to be with a legitimate party with vision and purpose. Imagine a (any) party having a well devised plan in achieving

things for the betterment of their constituents and the province in general and then have a rogue member bad mouth that goal because he or she has a different view on one particular thing. You have to be together when you want to get things done. The time to argue your heart out is at the party table where you try to put your view forward and convince your colleagues

in seeing it your way. Like anything else there are more than just your views on an issue. Once it is said and done, and the vote has been taken, then you must follow the party decision or else chaos ensues. There is no party that you are 100 per cent in agreement with. You choose your colours on the party that best represents your

stripes. They won’t always be represented. Do you want to change parties every time your views don’t exactly jive? To achieve good results you must follow the script. I feel a vote for an independent is like no vote at all. Carlo Spampinato Quesnel

Calida Kuzek brings her talents back home Intermediate and senior dancers invited to free class

Quesnel native Calida Kuzek is bringing her talents back home after four successful years dancing professionally in Vancouver. Credits she has acquired since making her big move include dancing in ABCs hit show Once Upon a Time, the Nickelodeon movie RAGS and a music video for Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush.

FEEDBACK

Works hard and listens Editor: Bob Simpson has my support as candidate for Cariboo North, because, as my MLA for the past few years, he’s done a great job of getting his voice – that is, OUR voice – heard in the legislature. While politics is not my game, I pay attention to what’s happening in the political parties and where my tax dollars are going. I like to think of Bob as a rabble rouser, in that he gets his voice heard and brings common sense to Victoria. I may not always agree with

NaTiOnAl

N a V a R a C D n A Gr

everything he has to say, but I do feel represented well – and I can’t say the same for his predecessor. As more and more party members leave their political parties to go independent and actually work for their constituents, the argument that not belonging to a party is ineffective is holding less and less truth every year. What is effective for voters is to elect someone who works hard and spends the time listening to the electorate. Sarah Shipley Quesnel

ELECTION BC

Candidates answer questions on hospice palliative care issues no fees for hospice beds. There should be no discrimination between hospice beds that are associated with hospitals and ones that are either stand alone or associated with seniors’ facilities. Hospice beds should be funded equitably regardless of their location. BC Liberal candidate Coralee Oakes Taking a look at the funding formula for hospice beds is something I will continue to fight for. BC NDP candidate Duncan Barnett Reducing inequality – in all its forms including health inequality – is the cornerstone of our platform. Each member of the legislative assembly has an equal voice and vote. Part of the job of an MLA is to assist constituents with resolution of

A Glimpse of History 50 yeArs AGo may 2, 1963

New Treatment Plant Goes Into Operation Here Tuesday “First phase of Quesnel’s new $225,000 sewage treatment System went into operation this week when the plant at the foot of Reid street was put into service. Cost of the installation was $120,000 and a second and slightly smaller plant located in West Quesnel will be ready well in advance of the sewer completion date in that area. Officially the East Quesnel plant went into operation Tuesday, but first sewage was actually started through the system on the weekend. The plant here is the finest of its kind to be installed west of the Great Lakes, though there are somewhat similar types located at Fort St. John and in the Okanagan. Where the Quesnel plant differs from others in B.C. is in the use of a Comminuter to pulverize sewage before it moves through the huge aeration tank and clarifier. Effluent from the plant is chlorinated before final discharge into the Quesnel River, and a close check on chlorination is maintained daily to avoid possible river pollution.” This Column is to highlight our 50th Anniversary

contentious issues and to represent the interests of the riding within the provincial context. Members of the Assembly elected under the BC NDP have deliberately chosen to work together within a party and a caucus structure to advance our shared values and goals such as universal health care.

from A6 • Are you aware that funding for hospice palliative care is not equitable across the province? In Quesnel, the hospice unit is attached to Dunrovin Park Lodge, a residential care facility and because of its location, palliative care patients admitted to a palliative care bed are required to pay a per diem of $31/ day. If the hospice setting is truly valued by patients and their families at end-of-life, then barriers such as the per diem must be removed. When you become MLA for this riding, do you see yourself able to represent your constituents on this contentious issue, even if this may be contrary to party line? Independent candidate Bob Simpson There should be

Do you know how? Do you promote this initiative? BC NDP candidate Duncan Barnett The government has prepared a useful guide on advanced directives, but has not done the work of promoting it to ensure the information is reaching the people who need it. No, I have not prepared my own yet, however, I have the advanced care planning guide. BC Liberal candidate Coralee Oakes

The Liberal government updated B.C.’s incapacity and personal planning laws in 2011, making it easier for British Columbians to make their wishes and instructions known and then in 2012 developed and released the Advanced Care Planning Guide. After this question was raised in a forum, I made sure I picked up a copy from the hospital and plan to share this with my family. I certainly intend on promoting this initiative and

encourage everyone to pick up the guide at the hospital. Independent candidate Bob Simpson I believe this tool must be supported

with stronger legislation so it is fully recognized without question by the medical community and health authorities. see PAGE A20

orking at a pet store can be a dangerous profession for someone who is in the rescue business. That is how Elvis made his way to the ranch.

Crooked Leg Tails

Elvis was a water dragon, a tropical reptile that can grow up to one metre long and weigh about 1 kg. Elvis and two others were brought in by a local pet store and kept in a small aquarium. The other two were purchased, but Elvis had a problem. He was living in a tank that was so small when he swung his head around, he hit his nose against the side of the glass.

He did this so often that the area became infected and he developed mouth rot. Some of the tissue around his nose and mouth rotted away. His health continued to deteriorate because he was not given the humid, spacious conditions that he needed. Fauna was tasked with his care, administering antibiotics daily. Through this intensive care, the reptile and caregiver began to bond. Being damaged, Elvis had little chance at being purchased, so he was bought as a rescue and taken to the ranch. A very large terrarium was constructed so that he could swim and climb. He became a member of the family, being allowed, at times, to wander the living room on his own. As he grew, he became more secure and would happily sit on someone’s shoulder and survey his

world. During the spring and summer, he was fitted with a special harness and allowed to spend time outside. Can you imagine taking a lizard for a walk? Elvis was part of the family until he passed away of old age. Exotic animals are best kept in their natural habitat because it is very difficult to replicate nourishing conditions at home. Elvis would have been much happier in his native environment. For more information, visit: www. crookedlegranch.com.

This water dragon is in the peak of health, unlike Elvis.

How do you choose a financial advisor? Like most people, you probably are busy with your work and family, and may not have the time or expertise needed to thoroughly understand the investment world. So how do you choose the right financial advisor? You can start by asking the right questions. Here are a few to consider:

When Choosing a Financial Advisor, Ask the Right Questions

What are your credentials? Inquire about a prospective advisor’s qualifications. Make sure anyone you might work with has all the necessary securities licenses. Are you or the firm you represent affiliated with regulatory organizations? Ask whether the advisor or the firm he or she represents is regulated. For example, any firm or advisor who is a member of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) would need to comply with rules that protect client assets if a firm becomes insolvent. What is your investment philosophy? Just like investors, financial advisors have different investment philosophies. Some might be naturally more aggressive, while others are more conservative. But the ideal advisor can provide you with guidance based on your risk tolerance and investment preferences. How will you communicate with me? Make sure your financial advisor will communicate regularly with you. Find out when you’ll receive statements and how often you’ll meet in person to review your portfolio. Will your financial advisor call with suggestions and recommendations? Are you free to contact him or her at any time? Remember, you’re entrusting this person with your financial future – so you have a right to always expect open, honest and frequent communications. What sort of resources can you draw upon? Find out if a prospective investment professional has access to quality research and technical expertise in key areas, such as investments, insurance and estate planning. In some cases, a financial advisor may be able to bring in added expertise through a relationship with another professional, such as a lawyer or accountant. How are you paid? Investment professionals can be paid through fees, commissions, percentage of assets under management or even a combination of these. You need to know, right from the start, how your financial advisor is being compensated. Can you provide me with references? A lot of people are too shy to ask for references. However, a reputable financial advisor will be happy to give you some names of people you can call. Of course, you shouldn’t expect a financial professional to provide you with the specifics of other clients’ financial transactions. But you should be free to ask about a financial advisor’s style, responsiveness, etc. Your association with a financial advisor is one of the most important business relationships you’ll ever have. Making the right choice today can pay off into the future. Edward Jones, Member Canadian Investor Protection Fund.

his beautiful perennial caught my eye in the front garden of Quesnel’s master gardener, Natalie Sargent. A huge swath of variegated fragrant Solomon’s Seal brightened the shade under a tree. I must have openly displayed my love of this plant as Natalie so graciously brought me a piece for my own garden. Polygonatum odoratum variegatum must have also caught the eye of gardeners and nursery people who make up the Perennial Plant Association. These members come together to vote every year on the Perennial of the Year. There are many criteria the perennial must fall into to be nominated and then finally be awarded the honour above others that are nominated. First, it must suitably grow in a wide range of climatic conditions.

It performs well in part to full shade conditions. It prefers moist, well-drained soil where plants can be left undisturbed. It is a natural in the woodland garden growing alongside hostas, ferns and astilbes. Have patience, as it is slow growing but so worth the wait. Perennial of the Year must be relatively pest and disease resistant, have low maintenance growing requirements and be readily available. Solomon’s Seal fits all these requirements. This hardy perennial will grow in zone 3, making it suitable for a large number of gardeners. The graceful, arching stems have green and white variegated leaves. It reaches a height of 45cm (18inches) and will spread by rhizomes to form colonies. In the fall they turn an attractive yellow. Delicate, bell-

shaped white flowers are sweetly fragrant. This plant is outstanding in the border as well as a cut flower. For all of you hosta fans (myself included), this year’s Hosta of the Year is Rainforest Sunrise. It is a small hosta. Rainforest Sunrise

has a height of 20cm (8in.) and a spread of 40 cm (16 in.). The leaves are slightly cupped and corrugated with florescent gold centres and deep green margins. Very slug resistant, this plant is a strong grower with bright summer colour for

the shade. Ideal for a container this summer season then planted into your garden to be enjoyed for years to come. Jean Atkinson is a horticulturist with

Candidates speak to hospice issues

from A15 •Will you commit to advocating for a comprehensive visionary palliative care policy that puts the right patient in the right bed at the right time? Independent candidate Bob Simpson It is a critical level of support that provides special expertise to allow families to support their loved one to die with dignity and I absolutely support the implementation and resourcing of a comprehensive policy for end-of-life care. The need for this level of care will only grow and we must resource this need appropriately. BC NDP candidate Duncan Barnett The BC NDP believe in a continuum of care so all British Columbians get the right kind of care at the right time – from home support, to independent living, assisted living, residential care and palliative care. Our fully-costed health care platform is available at www. bcndp.ca/plan. BC Liberal candidate Coralee Oakes I do believe palliative care can be improved in B.C. I commit to being an advocate and I look forward to participating in this conversation if elected as MLA.

his sign is near Sproat Lake, near Port Alberni on Vancouver Island. The development of high quality logging roads, oiler the past 25 years, has opened up vast areas of what had been wilderness, to the family vehicle. Logging trucks now carry loads that I thought could never be reached on twisting trials through the forest land – they have the right of way by virtue of their size, on the Andy Motherwell Historical Footnotes roads built for them. Tourists have to be vigilant in spotting passing spots for use when a mountain of wood comes around the corner. Radio communication between all vehicles is essential to road safety especially during dusty seasons and winter snows. The sign is graphic – it catches the eye, depicts the outcome of carelessness and illustrates the scale of large trees and small cars on remote paths erin forest to mill. It’s the life blood of our land, our lives and our industry. Be prepared for the unexpected – they come first. Andy Motherwell is an amateur historian and regular Observer columnist.

Look Ma – successful adult! 10 thank-yous your mother should hear

• First and foremost, thank you for always telling me how proud you were of me and pointing out all of the ways in which I was (and am!) special. Because of you, I know how important it is to love yourself. • Thank you for insisting that I always be on time. I may have dragged my feet a lot as a kid, but now I know that punctuality shows respect for other people. • Thank you for showing me how to conduct a civil disagreement with others. While I don’t enjoy confrontation, I am comfortable sharing and defending my views. • Thank you for being a stickler about completing chores. I may never love to vacuum and do laundry, but I

know how to keep myself and my house clean. • Thank you for teaching me that people do judge a book by its cover. I may not always be a walking fashion plate, but I do take pride in my appearance. And I know to iron my shirt and pants before important occasions! • Thank you for forcing me to eat asparagus and Brussels sprouts when all I wanted was chicken fingers and potato chips. Now I’m a healthy eater who loves the produce aisle! • Thank you for encouraging me to keep trying and practicing after I was cut from the soccer team. You taught me how to be determined and resilient and that persistence usually pays off. (I made the team the following year!)

• Thank you for teaching me how to be polite and courteous to everyone I meet. I have gotten to know so many interesting people because I simply smiled and said hello! • Thank you for reading bedtime stories to me for years. You introduced me to so many new ideas and you helped to make me a creative and imaginative person. • Thank you for drilling me on my spelling words before my quiz each week. You taught me how valuable it is to put your best effort into whatever job you happen to be doing. You were right when you told me that careful preparation usually helps you to get results you can be proud of! – submitted by Todd Patkin

Dust & Smoke MotoX riders hit Quesnel track Quesnel Dirt Riders Assoc. hosted BCMAs rounds five and six this weekend. The weather played in our favour for the first time this weekend allowing racers from all over the province to race on the newly improved track as well as many local residents coming out to challenge their skills at racing. From beginner's to national pro racers, everyone was impressed and didn't hesitate to express their opinions on what a great weekend Quesnel hosted. "The racing is going well. The new section turned out really well," local racer Jordy Davis said. Local riders from Quesnel managed to keep a lot of the trophies in their home town showing off their local talent. Spencer O'Flynn raced in the 7 – 11-year-olds in the 85cc Class, taking first place on Saturday and Sunday. Dayne Cutrell also took home a second place trophy in that class for both days while, Jacob Nestel finished in sixth. Brothers Haiden and Austin Watson both took home hardware, with Austin taking a second and third place in 85cc (12 – 16 year-old).  A

lot of local riders competed in the Jr. B Class against Haiden Watson, who took home first place trophies both days. Jordon Brears finished in third place both days. Local riders Stuart Courtney, Ashton Love and Eric Redekop also competed in the Jr. B Class. Number 82, Colton Shepherd, had a great start in School Boy on Saturday morning, taking a first place finish in his first moto, but didn't finish as well in his second moto when he went down in front of another rider causing Shepherd to get run over and suffer some minor injuries and damage to his bike, resulting in Shepherd having to pull off the track.  With some rest and repairs to the bike, Shepherd headed out Sunday to compete once again, but ended quickly on his first lap. Battling for first place, suddenly the rider in front crashed, taking Shepherd down with him, mangling the two bikes and riders together, sending Shepherd to the hospital and finishing his racing for the weekend. A severe sprain to his hand and bruising was fortunately all that happened in that crash.

Two first place trophies also stayed in town for number 671, Jackson Nickolet in the Super Mini Class. Nickolet recovered quickly after going down hard during the race, needing assistance walking after a terrible crash, but went on to complete the day with great success. First and second place trophies were won by number 109, Jordy Davis in Intermediate MX3 over the weekend. He held off many competitors fighting for the title and raced as well in Intermediate MX2. Davis finished fifth on Saturday and moved up a position on Sunday to finish the weekend in fourth. Skill and speed were the advantage for number 150 Brad Dunn this weekend, racing in the Vet Masters and Plus 40 Class against national pro riders. Brad earned a second and third place trophy on Saturday.  Racers hope to continue bringing trophies home to Quesnel as they head up to Terrace for Rounds seven and eight next weekend May 11 – 12.   –Submitted by Gerri Shepherd

Heavy is the waist that bears the belt

Local wins provincial champion Tae Kwon Do belt down south JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter Katrina MacLean's new belt is heavy. Weighing in at a couple kilograms, it sits high on her waist, covering her midsection and declaring her the black belt Womens Provincial Champion. While Bob Deane was burdened with work, MacLean took 13 students from Deane's Black Belt Academy to Kamloops to compete in the Canadian Martial Arts Grand Prix Tournament, May 4. MacLean, too nervous to eat the morning of, faced off against her friend and past provincial champion Emily Liebich in the tournament. The tournament consisted of four possible categories: patterns, sparring, high kick and weapon sparring (with foam swords). MacLean, in her first year as an adult competitor, having turned 18 this year, competed in patterns and sparring for the title. Everyone from the club competed in patterns and sparring, taking home quite

a few medals. Most competed in high kick and weapons sparring as well – though some opted out of the latter. MacLean did well in the patterns, taking gold in a performance she barely remembers, but it was the sparring gold she really had her eye on. And it was the sparring that came down to the wire.

Once again facing off against her friend Liebich, MacLean lost a point early, but quickly gained it back and then took the lead. Liebich didn’t let up and tied it up three seconds before the buzzer sounded, pushing the match to sudden death. Sudden death, however, wasn't so sudden, as a minute

of clashes with no clear winner passed before MacLean took the point with a front punch, winning the gold and the belt. But, being a black belt and an instructor, she was also there to help and lead the team. The team she took down varied from her black belt level experience to green belts going to their first tournament. Jesse Dean, a new, adult student at the school, got gold in both patterns and sparring in his first tournament. Dean, who had originally decided to pass on the opportunity, was surprised by both his performance and the tournament. "It was interesting. It wasn't really what I expected; It was a really good mix of different types of people," he said. For the club as a whole, the tournament was a resounding success, with the 14 competitors coming back with 44 medals in total. Besides Dean and MacLean's golds in patterns and sparring many others came back with medals.

May 12 - May 18, 2013 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, something irresistible keeps grabbing your attention. Don’t overindulge too much or you will regret the decision later on. Exercise moderation. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you may be tempted to run away from a challenging situation, but it is in your best interest to hunker down and face the problem. You won’t be going it alone. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you seem to quickly conquer tasks that others struggle with. It could be thanks to your ability to focus, but look over your work to make sure it’s correct. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, while many things come easily to you, there is one particular situation that continually proves problematic. You might have to scale a few mountains to handle it. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, this week you might be better off tackling things on your own instead of looking to others for support. This will help minimize any potential distractions. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 You have a few secrets you are not willing to share just yet, Virgo. That’s alright. Keeping some of your agenda private will inspire curiosity and be to your advantage. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you may be trying to get a certain person alone so you can have some one-on-one time together. A rendezvous is possible this week.

Cobras strike

The Quesnel Cobras stunned the competition, their parents and their coaches by taking their play to the next level and winning the Volleyball provincials in Abbortsford last weekend. “The girls played unbelievably, better than coach Trevor Briggs or I expected,” assistant coach Derrick Steinbach said. The team, with a single tournament under their belt for the season had the added difficulty of losing their setter. The alternate stepped in and played well according to Steinbach. “All the girls stepped up to overcome some major adversity this past weekend in Abbotsford,” coach Trevor Briggs said. The girls played seven games, only losing one in the tournament. During round robin play the Cobras beat Altruista from Abbotsford two sets to one, 1525, 25-19, 16-14. In their second game, they posted their only loss, losing a heartbreaker to Phoenix Volleyball from Port Coquitlam, 23-25, 27-29. They regrouped in the final game of the round robin to defeat Air Attack Black from Richmond, 25-11, 26-24. Based on their second place finish in their pool, the Cobras advanced to the Championship side and were forced to play four matches on Sunday. They defeated Synergy from Surrey, two sets to one, 21-25, 26-24, 15-5. Next up, the Cobras faced the undefeated Altruista Silver, from Abbotsford. Altruista didn’t stay undefeated, as the Cobras won two sets to one, 25-21, 22-25, 15-11. The win put them into the semis against their arch–rival, the Prince George Kodiaks, who they defeated in exciting fashion, 21-25, 25-19, 15-13, to advance to the Gold Medal game. In the finals they faced off against Burnaby, winning the first set 25-17. They stumbled going into the second set but came from behind after several sensational rallies to win 25-21. To add to the excitement, the gold medals were awarded to the Cobras by the current Canadian National Team Captain Fred Winters who is from Victoria. The Quesnel Cobras are a club team made of girls born in 1997. “Derrick and I really enjoyed the past few months coaching the girls and we’re looking forward to next school season as well as continuing to run Cobras Club,” Briggs said.

Miso mushroom noodle bowl

his bowl of noodles is quick and simple to prepare and only requires a few ingredients, making it an ideal choice for a weeknight or a quick weekend lunch. Nowadays it’s much easier to find fresh soba noodles in the supermarket and these are what I prefer, although you could use any type of noodle. A simple dish that brings a little exotic to the everyday who could ask for more? Ingredients (Serves 4) 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 shallots, finely sliced 2 small hot chili peppers, finely sliced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1x 1-inch piece ginger, grated 3 tablespoons yellow miso paste 2 tablespoons soy sauce

4 cups mushroom or vegetable broth 2 cups mixed mushrooms (I used white, crimini and shiitake and left the shiitake intact, quartered the white and finely sliced the crimini) 200g fresh soba noodles handful cilantro, roughly chopped Instructions Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot (big enough to hold all the broth and other ingredients). Over a medium-high heat sauté the shallots, chili peppers, garlic and ginger until they are just starting to soften, but don’t let them colour. Add the miso paste and soy sauce and stir to thoroughly coat the shallot mixture. Add the broth, increase the heat and bring to a boil.

Add the mushrooms and bring back to the boil. Add the noodles and cook for a remaining 4-5 minutes – the noodles and the mushrooms should be “al dente”. Divide amongst four bowls and serve with a scattering of cilantro. Mardi Michels is a well known food blogger who resides in Toronto, Ontario.

Celebrating with delicious chocolate cake

B

low out the candles and cut the cake – it’s time to celebrate! For 100 years Hellmann’s Mayonnaise has been bringing people together through delicious meals, like this classic Real Delicious Chocolate Cake. Didn’t know that you could bake with Hellmann’s? Substituting mayonnaise for eggs and butter helps add an unmistakable moistness that has been a secret ingredient since the recipe was developed in 1937. Recipe serves: 12 Prep Time: 20 Minutes Cook Time: 30 Minutes Ingredients • 2 cups all-purpose flour • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder • 1-1/4 tsp. baking soda • 1/4 tsp. baking powder • 3 eggs • 1-2/3 cups sugar • 1 tsp. vanilla extract • 1 cup Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise • 1-1/3 cups water Directions • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and lightly flour two 9-inch/ 23 cm/ 1.5 L, round cake pans*; set aside. • Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder in medium bowl; set aside. • Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer at high speed until light and

fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise at low speed until blended. Alternately beat in flour mixture with water, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Pour into prepared pans. • Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on wire racks; remove from pans and cool completely. • Frost with your favorite frosting or generously sprinkle with confectioners *Or, prepare cake mix as above in 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23-cm / 3.5 L) baking pan and bake 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Did you know? • Canada’s Food Guide actually recommends eating a small amount (30-45 mL or 2-3 tbsp) of unsaturated fat each day. Some oils, like mayonnaise and margarine, are actually considered good fats and Canada’s Food Guide recommends eating a small amount (30-45 mL or 2-3 tbsp) of unsaturated fat each day. Hellmann’s is celebrating 100 years of helping families Bring Out the Best. Visit Facebook. com/HellmannsCanada for more delicious recipe ideas. www.newscanada.com

In Loving Memory

Andrea Marie Ellen Bissett Leaving behind are her parents Diane Bissett, father Larry Bissett, sisters Melanie Shelmerdine (Sean Shelmerdine) Misty Healey (Caleb Fraser) and her very best friend Kenneth Storey, nieces and nephews Araya Shelmerdine, Paris Shelmerdine, Ivory Shelmerdine, Eden Mackie, Cassidy Cave, Ciera Pettyjohn, Trinity Fraser, Kreston Fraser, Deklan Fraser and Paysle Fraser. Panda Bear, we will never ever forget you and we are lost without you. You have brought a lot of sunshine, love, and plenty of laughter to our lives and much more. We are so deeply saddened to have one of our greatest gifts leave us. We know God is with you now taking all your fear and pain away. We will see you soon my friend and daughter. Don’t grieve for me for now I am free, I’m following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone will stay that way, I found that peace at close of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things I do miss. But not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life has been full, I’ve savoured much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief, Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.
