Hospital plan closer to a reality Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The log jam has been lifted and the plans can flow, said Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District chair John Massier after a presentation Friday from Interior Health and a formal request for funds to proceed with the Cariboo Memorial Hospital concept plan. “We received a letter requesting 40 per cent of the total funding for

the concept plan from IH. They are actually putting up 60 per cent of this from their own pockets,” Massier said. “It’s the first positive sign from Interior Health that they are moving ahead now. It’s the movement we’ve been hoping for and pushing them to make.” There will be an open evening public meeting on June 26 where Northern Health will present the hospital master plan for the G.R. Baker Master Plan for the Quesnel

hospital and Interior Health will present the concept plan for Williams Lake. “We will have a discussion after that about how we are going to save them money,” Massier chuckled. At the CCRHD board meeting May 10, the board asked staff to bring back a bylaw to authorize the funding for the concept plan, which will be around $240,000. for the next board meeting. “We unanimously approved it.

Interior Health has already worked on the request for proposals for the plan, and as soon as we approve the bylaw at our meeting the first week of June, then they will advertise.” Massier’s hoping by the end of June a contractor will be in place and start collecting information over the next few months. “I hope we’ll receive the plan by next spring at the latest and that will give us a lot more detail as to what we can do.”

Cariboo Fire Centre warns of dry, volatile conditions Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

PM 0040785583

The Cariboo Fire Centre is reminding the public to be safe with fire use — especially in the Chilcotin where dry, volatile wildfire conditions exist. Last week the fire danger rating for the Chilcotin was increased to high. Two new fires, each less than one

hectare in size, started in the Chilcotin during the weekend, said fire information officer Greig Bethel. Of the 44 fires in the Cariboo Fire Region in 2013, all were started by humans, and therefore preventable. Bethel reminded the public an open burning prohibition is in effect for the entire Cariboo Fire Centre region. The prohibition bans all backyard and industrial burning, includ-

ing waste, slash, stubble and grass. Campfires are still permitted, but they must be kept under a half-metre by half-metre in size. Cook stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes are also OK. Anyone found in contravention of the prohibition may be issued a ticket for $345 or, if convicted in court, be fined up to $100,000 and sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or

contributes to a wildfire, the person may be subject to a penalty of up to $10,000 and be ordered to pay all fire fighting and associated costs. Eight warning and violation tickets have already issued, Bethel noted. He added this week the Cariboo Fire Centre will be on the lookout for thunderstorms and lightning strikes especially in Chilcotin and Cariboo Mountains.



Recommendations made in Sargent case Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The jury participating in the public inquest into the death of 19-year-old Blaine Conrad Sargent found the immediate cause of death was a methamphetamine overdose and classified the death as accidental, but it also made nine recommendations. Sargent died on Sept. 21, 2011 at the University of Northern B.C. Hospital. He was taken to the hospital after going into medical distress at the Prince George Correctional Centre a short time after returning from a court appearance in Williams Lake. Of the nine recommendations four were directed to Sentry Correctional Health Services Inc., and included

during the intake process of inmates, that health care professionals explain in “plain and simple” language the risks of packing drugs, and that if drugs are present it will be treated as medical issue. To BC Corrections and BC Sheriffs the jury recommended implementing official 10-minute checks on prisoners with noted medical concerns. To the RCMP, BC Corrections and BC Sheriffs that they continue to work on an information sharing system that shares pertinent information, and that information posters on the danger of drug packing are made and placed in high visibility areas, both in RCMP cell blocks as well as correctional centres.

“The posters are to be made in such a way that anyone can understand, including illiterate and non-English speaking people,” the jury’s statement noted. It also suggested the RCMP make notation on the prison jail forms if there is any reason to suspect an inmate is packing drugs or has other medical issues and that a written assessment check list be designed for the RCMP for use when a medical check has been requested. The three-day inquest, presided by regional coroner Donita Kuzma, finished in Williams Lake May 8. “This death is a tragedy and our heartfelt condolences go out to the family of Mr. Sargent,” a Ministry of Jus-

tice spokesperson said in an e-mailed response. “BC Corrections and the Court Services Branch take this death very seriously and are committed to making changes that improve the safety of inmates in our custody. We thank the jury for its thoughtful recommendations for which BC Corrections and the Court Services Branch will give careful consideration and a formal response for each one will be provided to the Coroner’s Service. These recommendations will build on those already put in place as a result of the joint BC Corrections’ Critical and Court Services’ Incident Review.”

NEWS Truth and reconciliation sharing begins Thursday Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Former students, their family members and others who have been affected by Canada’s Indian Residential Schools are invited to share their experiences with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), May 16 to 18 as part of the St. Joseph’s Mission Residential School Commemoration Project. Everyone who would like to learn about and bear witness to the legacy of the schools is encouraged to attend. Statements may be made publicly at sharing panels conducted by Justice Murray Sinclair, chair of the TRC, or privately. Public sharing panels are scheduled in the gymnasium, Thompson Rivers University, Williams Lake: Thursday, May 16 from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, May 17 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday, May 18

from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Private statement gathering will begin May 16 and continue through Monday, May 20. Health support workers will be on hand. Sharing panels are free to the public and will be streamed live at The TRC is an independent commission established as a result of the 2007 Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. Its mandate is to inform all Canadians about what happened in the 150-year history of the residential schools, and to guide and inspire a process of reconciliation and renewed relationships based on mutual understanding and respect. In Williams Lake both the city and the Cariboo Regional District have declared Sept. 30 as “Orange Shirt Day,” annually as an acknowledgement of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self worth, self-

esteem and well-being and the pain suffered by the children who attended and their families, and as an affirmation of both local governments’ commitment to standing together to ensure that everyone matters. The idea came after former St. Joseph’s Mission Residential School student Phyllis Webstad told a story during a panel discussion on April 26 about her grandmother buying her a new shiny orange shirt for her first day of school. Upon arrival at school, the shirt and her other clothes were taken away, and replaced with a uniform. “I couldn’t wear orange for many years,” Webstad said. Monuments honouring residential school students will be unveiled at the former St. Joseph Mission School site on Thursday May 16 and in Boitanio Park on Friday May 17. Both ceremonies begin at 11 a.m.

Community encouraged to help with city place branding Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer City council is encouraging the community to help with a place brand for Williams Lake. There will be an updated survey for residents at the existing participate website. Public meetings will also take place, perhaps toward the end of the month, the city’s manager of economic development said at the May 7 council meeting. “The branding company has agreed to work with us to gather additional input and then look at some new slogan ideas, and some of those things, at no additional cost,” Madrigga said.

So far the cost has been around $41,000. An additional $50,000 is set in the 2013 budget for marketing, he confirmed. “We will communicate out more as well as try to get people to participate better this time around. We anticipate that people will engage and we will be responding to some of the comments we have already received the last month,” Madrigga said. Last month a delegation showed up at the April 9 city council meeting to protest the proposed “Republic of Life” tag line. There have been online discussions protesting the slogan and the branding process, and several letters to the editor in the Tribune.

Madrigga said the original brand advisory committee will be active and explained the committee has representatives involved with the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, other service clubs, Thompson Rivers University, Williams Lake Construction Association, and people who are trying to attract workers with investment dollars to the community. Coun. Laurie Walters asked if other community members could be involved, and Madrigga said there’s always an opportunity to engage more people, but the point of having a smaller committee was not to be reclusive or non-inclusive. “If you have a large

committee you end up with no consensus, but the committee members will go out to the public and gather input before anything is finalized,” he said. Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said he will not support the branding project moving forward. “I supported the budget originally, but that doesn’t mean we should spend the money. I think council should rethink if we need to spend this type of money. The hall was full here last month and 92 per cent of the people were against it, plus or minus.” Contradicting Rathor, Coun. Geoff Bourdon said council has identified it needs to develop a brand.

“Just because we meet some resistance I don’t see that as a reason to throw it out the window.” It was made clear that everyone did not like the word “republic, he said. Otherwise most people identify with the effectiveness of having a brand. “The fact that we have a consultant doing work without additional expense to the community I can’t justify throwing $40,000 out the window.” Coun. Danica Hughes said she didn’t recall many people saying they are against branding. “It was about being against the tag line and that people felt they didn’t have an opportunity to give the input they

would have liked to contribute,” Hughes said. There needs to be some balance put forth to the project, she added. “Not only who we were, and who we are, and who we are going to become. The whole point of the branding is about our future. “I don’t think anyone would consist that everyone sitting around this table is concerned with our residents and our future residents.” She also stressed that while the initial proposal was not her “cup of tea,” she wants to move forward with the project. Mayor Kerry Cook said council is taking a step back and encourages people who are passionate about the community

to provide input. “People can be involved, we’re using the website. This is the beginning of the process, we haven’t adopted anything, we haven’t moved forward, we still have a long way to go in the process,” Cook said. Hughes said branding is one piece of the pie. It is only one of a number of initiatives that are going on for succession and retention, she added. “I think there’s a notion out there that we think this is going to be the be all end all for Williams Lake and bring all these people in,” she said. Madrigga agreed saying a place brand is one thing in the tool box for marketing.

NEWS Transparency important in mining Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer When it comes to mining, transparency is one of the things Canadians care about, says Mining Association of Canada CEO Pierre Gratton. Gratton was the keynote speaker at a Mining Week event hosted in Williams Lake, May 2, by Imperial Metals Mount Polley and Taseko Mines Ltd. Presently there are 45 mining companies in the association. Under MAC’s Toward Sustainable Mining program, companies evaluate themselves and every three years receive an external audit to ensure they’ve measured themselves accurately. The results are posted on the MAC website to give the public a chance to look at all the member companies’ mines and see how they’re performing against a criteria from year to year. “It also gives you the chance to see how the industry is making continuous progress in terms of how it manages its environmental and social performance,” Gratton said. “It’s one of the ways of making sure you can trust the corporate citizens that live and operate in your town.” Imperial Metals Mount Polley general manager Tim Fisch said Imperial Metals completed phase one of the audit process in 2012. Mining is an essential industry, with 320,000 employees working across Canada, Gratton said. “It pays the highest

Mining Association of Canada CEO Pierre Gratton was the keynote speaker at a mining week reception hosted by Imperial Metals Mount Polley and Taseko Mines Ltd. industrial wage of any sector in the economy, 30 to 60 per cent above many other sectors, including forestry or oil and gas. We paid $9 billion in taxes and royalties to governments in 2011.” A major investor in capital, mining is the largest private sector employer of Aboriginal people in Canada, with some mines employing more than 50 per cent Aboriginal employees, he added. “Presently there are more than 350 agreements between mining companies and Aboriginal communities in Canada. There isn’t another sector that comes remotely close to that.” Resource revenue sharing with Aboriginal communities is symbolically significant because it ensures the wealth coming out of

the ground in traditional territories is shared, he added. “It sends a very rich important signal of respect. I truly believe it’s imperative on a goforward basis that Aboriginal Canadians participate in and benefit from the resource boom in our sector in the next 30 years. If they don’t we will have failed.” Mainstream economic Canadian society traditionally excluded Aboriginals, but the industry is working hard to change that, he suggested. “We’ve developed a protocol on Aboriginal community engagement. Here in B.C. you have a tremendous success with the BC Aboriginal Mine Training Association.” The present age cannot live without mining, Gratton said, arguing

mined materials have to come from somewhere. “I always feel, working for the Canadian mining industry, I’d rather it came from here because that means it was coming from a place where the jobs were here, where I knew that we had the strongest environmental laws and regulations in the world, and where we have companies that had the highest level of environmental awareness and knowledge.” Gratton recently returned from a trip to Turkey. He was invited there by the Turkish Mining Association because they wanted to learn about mining in Canada. “They wanted to know how we run our industry and our sustainable mining program, which is a program of responsible mining, and how they can apply it in their country.” Mining is one of the few industries that Canada dominates in globally, he added. “We are considered and recognized as leaders in the world. In many other sectors of the Canadian economy we’re branch plants. The Americans, Europeans and Japanese are here. Look at our automotive industry. There aren’t Canadian cars. We make them here, some of them, but they are not our industry.” Working for MAC

was not something he was trained for, Gratton told the Tribune. “I was working politically at the federal level for the Minister of Justice and the Minister of Natural Resources Anne McClellan. I’m not an engineer, I’m not a geologist.” While he was working for McLellan, a friend was hired by the MAC as an economist. “He called me up when a public affairs role opened up and encouraged me to apply,” Gratton said. “I’d been on the hill for three years and in my head had told myself that would probably be enough time because those are crazy jobs. My wife was pregnant and I didn’t think it was a good idea to be a dad and have a job on parliament hill.” He applied and then got the job. “I remember at the time wondering what I was getting into. Wondering what this mining industry was all about. I had my own perceptions about whether it was responsible or not. About its environmental performance and the rest of it.” Gratton went into the job wondering how his conscience would feel and found out he was working for a sector he “just loved.”

It’s a great time to grow my business. Really?

City contract provides pay increase Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake city union workers will receive a modest incremental pay increase in its new 2012-2016 collective agreement. On March 4, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 882-B and the city ratified the new agreement. The increases will be 1.75 per cent for 2012, 1.75 per cent for 2013, two per cent for 2014 and two per cent for 2015. At its May 7 council meeting, mayor and council received a report on the agreement from the city’s manager of human resources, Ashley Williston. “Council met with the negotiating committee at the beginning of the process and gave overall direction of less than two per cent net difference of taxation which was a total or combination of benefit and wages,” Mayor Cook said. The final agreement

did come in under that, Cook added. “It was a difficult process, but we have a new collective agreement and will be posting this on the city’s website.” Coun. Surinderpal Rathor said the agreement is “excellent” for the workers and the management side. In her report, Williston outlined some major changes in the new agreement. The lead hand differential rate increased from 80 cents to $1 an hour. The foreman differential rate increased from $2.65 to $3 per hour. A certified journeyman rate of $32.81 per hour was also added. Boot Allowance increased from $150 per year to $200 per year with proof of purchase. The tool allowance increased to $250 a year with proof of purchase. The city will eliminate the current seasonal labourer positions through attrition as the current incumbents vacate these positions.

They will then be filled by students at 75 per cent of the labourer 1 rate. Commencing May 1, 2014, a part time or seasonal employee who is temporarily laid off will only be able to bump into other part time or seasonal position, and the city will no longer pay for benefits during layoffs. An employee who is called in to work shall receive a minimum of two hours of pay at the rate of double his/her straight time hourly rate. If the employee works more than two hours, the employee shall receive a minimum of four hours pay at a rate of double his/ her straight time hourly rate. The shift premium is increased from 75 cents to 85 cents, and the union will now have a generic pay direct prescription card. Sick day allotment will be increased from eight days to nine days with the ability to carry over two

Mining ‘hugely’ regulated: Gratton Continued From Page A4 The people in mining are “pardon the pun, down to earth,” very collaborative, and really ethical, he added. Using the overhaul of the Canadian environmental assessment act as an example, he said MAC has been involved very closely. “The position we took all along was that we wanted an act that was well-run and efficient.

• • • • • •

We did not try to get it out of environmental assessment. When the Conservative government made the reforms it did, they removed a whole level of environmental assessment called screening.” As a result some sectors are no longer assessed at all, Gratton said, adding mining could have lobbied to “get out,” but didn’t, on a principle position. “It was not the ethical position to take. We

have major projects with impacts that should be evaluated, so all of our recommendations focused, not on getting out, but on just ensuring it was well run, predictable, and that decisions made sense.” And the association is satisfied, he said. “We think that since 2010, C.E.A.A. runs the agency much better than it used to. Mining is ‘hugely’ regulated. It’s not the industry of yesteryears.”

Seems more like theft, to me

Helping kids with emotions

D#6 has her “L” driver’s license. She is taking driving lessons, but my job is to take her on the trials runs. She actually does very well. I am the problem. This is not a new game for me. I rode shotgun (many years ago) for all our sons when they were in the learning driver stage. They didn’t complain when I “put on” imaginary brakes (I think my right leg is still stiff) but they were upset when I gasped. M y French n e r v e s Connection w e r e Diana French younger then. I try very hard not to give GD advice, that’s a professional instructor’s job, and I don’t gasp, but I do find myself gripping the door every time we go around a corner. *** While our attention has been on the provincial election, the Harper government has been up to some sleazies. While Defense Minister Peter MacKay is spending “mazillions” of dollars on war machines, travel, whatever he pleases, veterans of the war in Afghanistan are having to sue the government to get a just settlement for their warinflicted injuries. Then there are the three senators who collected thousands of dollars for living expenses they weren’t entitled to. Wouldn’t that be theft for anyone else? Or doesn’t it count if it’s just taxpayers being diddled? True, the trio have to pay the money back, but Mike Duffy seems to think he’s a hero because he did it voluntarily. Wow. *** This could be the last summer in B.C. for the Mars water bombers. The huge aircraft have been putting out wildfires in this province for 53 years, but according to reports from Victoria news media, because the historic aircraft also have contracts in the U.S., the provincial government decided they need a more consistent service to supplement our fire fighting. Let’s hope this won’t be a case of not knowing what we’ve got ‘til it’s gone. Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune. She is a former Tribune editor, retired teacher, historian, and book author.

am lucky to have two sisters that I am close with. However, close doesn’t always mean we see eye to eye. Last week my sister and I were disagreeing about politics. I was so upset I couldn’t even finish the disagreement. Later that night I called my sister back and told her how surprised I was that I was unable to talk while feeling so upset. I see similar reactions in my young children, aged three and six, when they are fighting. The six-year old is taller and thinks faster than her younger brother. When they are fighting over a toy she can get her own way by putting it out of his reach. My three-year old’s response is to either hit his sister or start screaming. I catch myself telling them to “use your words” but the reminder on its own doesn’t actually help them to do so. When emotions run high communication is difficult — for both children and adults. When parents teach their children the language and skills to manage emotions, children grow into individuals who have better relationships at school, at home and at work. Here are a few tips to help your children communicate about emotions: Help toddlers learn the names of emotions (happy, sad, mad, tired, and scared). Talk about your own emotions and the emotions of characters in books and on TV. Help children learn to regulate their own emotions. Show them how to take a few moments to breathe when emotions run high and how to come back when they are feeling calmer. Give children the words instead of telling them to “use your words.” For example, you can say “Scott tell Suzie how you feel. Say ‘when you put the bear where I can’t reach it I feel mad. I want a turn.’” Teach your children simple phrases that help them talk about emotions. For example “I don’t like that” and “please do something different” are very useful during conflict. Older pre-schoolers and elementary school age children are very capable of explaining their feelings with the formula of “when you ‘blank’ I feel blank.’” Calmly coaching children to communicate in times of high emotion and modelling these skills yourself can help children become successful communicators.

Our Viewpoint

No excuse not to vote If the last time British Columbian voters went to the polls is any indication, you’re just as likely not to cast a ballot in today’s provincial election as you are to mark your X. In 2009 just 50 per cent of eligible voters in the province turned out at the polls to make their voice heard. In fact, voter turnout has been declining steadily since 1983, when 70 per cent of eligible voters in B.C. exercised their franchise. It’s not like voting is hard work. Short of knocking on your front door and sticking a ballot under your nose, Elections BC has made it increasingly easier and more convenient for residents to vote. Advance polls were open in and around Williams Lake from Wednesday until Saturday. Voters could also cast their ballot at their nearest electoral office.

This Williams Lake Tribune is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder. If talking with the editor or publisher does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, you may contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent within 45 days to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby Street, Nanaimo, B.C., V9R 2R2.

It was even possible to vote by mail. Residents who won’t be in their electoral district on voting day can vote in any other riding in the province. And while Elections BC has studied the viability of online voting, there’s no guarantee that would increase voter participation in the province. In Markham, Ontario, where residents have been allowed to vote online in the past three municipal elections, participation didn’t increase. But, it also didn’t decline. So really, there’s no excuse not to vote. Today, May 4 there are polling stations open in every riding in the province, including Cariboo-Chilcotin and Cariboo North, and they’re open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Make sure to do your part today and mark your X. - Black Press

Homework needs to be done We need Editor: Re-branding of the City of Williams Lake has left a bitter taste in the mouths of many of the residents of Williams Lake. Somewhat similar to the 1987 Coca-Cola Company’s attempt to change the historic original formula of Coca-Cola with the introduction of what was called, New Coke. A re-branding and marketing attempt that failed miserably costing the Coca-Cola Company untold millions leading to a reintroduction of Classic Coca-Cola. If the city had done its homework, residents could have enjoyed coming up with all kinds of new focus branding, leaving

the spending of the $40,000 to be spent on community infrastructure. Recalling the words of Bella Coola author Cliff Kopas in his book, Bella Coola, as representative of the Bella Coola District Board of Trade attending the Highways and Tourist Bureau of the Vancouver Board of Trade in the early 1950s, as he listened to many representatives complain about roads and potholes in their districts. When it was Cliff’s turn to speak he suggested that because Bella Coola did not have a road, possibly, all the potholes could be sent to Bella Coola and they could build a road out of them. For $40,000 all the potholes in

Williams Lake should be gathered up and sent to the re-branding company for payment on account. Re-branding should not be taken lightly, whether it be renaming Williams Lake’s high school from Columneetza, or the proposed re-branding the City of Williams Lake, care and attention to community roots should not simply be cast aside, whether a student or a politician, homework needs to be done. The following are my words in a letter to city council I wrote, July 27, 2004. My opinion, regarding creating an environment of economic development, I argued at that time, “I believe we can do this by declaring Williams Lake,” “Cana-

da’s Capital of Western Heritage.” Regarding Marketing, I borrowed the words of author Ray Kinsella. “If you build it they will come.” Kimberley, B.C., calls itself the “Bavarian City of the Rockies,” in recognition of its European heritage. Williams Lake could have a slogan such as “Where the West Begins” or, “Land of Untamed Horizons,” or “Gateway to Adventure” or “Destination of Challenge.” What  is required is good marketing, selling and recognizing what makes the city and its environs truly interesting and unique.

With 92 per cent of the public against our city being the “Republic of Life,” I urge city council to return to our Western Heritage which has stood us well for many years. Keep in mind that same theme was created by many young taxpayers over the past many years. We were proud of it and still are.  People in other areas of the province thought being the “Republic” was a joke and said “you’re not serious.” Of the many people I have contacted, some interesting comments arise, such as “our western theme reminds people of wide

open spaces and clean air, blue skies, a great place to bring up our children. Good schools, our university, winter and summer recreation in abundance, a good hospital, affordable housing, a great place to work and play, and our world famous Williams Lake Stampede brings a lot of tourists to town.” A good example of a Western Heritage city that has done well is Calgary. Our city has grown from the strength of our resource industries: logging, saw mills, mining and ranching with several thousand cattle sold per year. These base industry jobs provide a three-to-one ratio to other jobs for the community.

As I sat in that meeting at city hall with 100 people, I had the feeling the firm presenting the program “Republic” was from another world, suggesting it had looked at the strengths and the weakness of our city. They emphasized that our weakness was being considered a “sawmill town” when it’s known that forestry, lumber and the mills have been a major part of our economic growth. There is at least one firm in Williams Lake who could do a professional job of putting together a DVD which could contain local photographs, data on all our industry, affordable housing and business opportunities. This would describe in detail

a wealth of evidence-based public innovations that are addressing those challenges. All we need is the leadership from a pro-public health care government to scale those innovations up and make improvements where needed. It is not in our best interests to continue the move towards an American style system. Joan Magee Williams Lake

what makes Williams Lake an outstanding place to live. Businesses would be attracted by a shopping population of 50,000. These DVDs could be duplicated at a reasonable cost, sold at the tourist centre, or mailed to firms that would be interested in expanding to Williams Lake, a city, with all the amenities displayed in the DVD. I hope council will reconsider and return to our Western Heritage or at least put it to referendum so that the majority of the public feel that they are involved.       Jim Fraser Williams Lake

Public health care system under attack by for-profits Editor: For more than 40 years I was a health science professional at Cariboo Memorial Hospital. I have ample knowledge about our health care system both on professional and personal levels. Since retiring, I spend the winters in Arizona. I find my American friends always have a lot of questions about our medicare system. They envy us. We do not have huge de-

ductibles or policy limits. We are never excluded due to pre-existing conditions. We all have health care, not just those who are lucky enough to be able to afford coverage. Our system cost 50 per cent less than theirs and our outcomes are better. Our public health care system has been under attack, however. Promoters of for-profit health care are on the offensive. After a decade of deep cuts and

increasing privatization, British Columbia can not afford to continue down the path to for-profit health care where care is available only to those who can afford it. Our universal healthcare system was instituted in 1962 by the NDP’s Tommy Douglas. In 2004 he was voted, by a CBC poll, to be Canada’s greatest Canadian! Are there challenges to the system? Absolutely. But there is also

Editor: Are we so short sighted that we cannot see real threats until our throats are being cut? Is democracy being replaced by the rise of plutocracy in the last 30 years?  The butcher knives are out. In a democracy, shouldn’t we all share the costs of civilization justly? Aren’t the many being consumed by the few for pathological pursuit of profit, power, privilege and corporatocracy? Should there be deception by the few to download costs onto the many, creating a “chasm” of income and wealth inequality, education inequality, medical care inequality, political inequality, and social security inequality?  Corporate tax cuts and tax cuts for the richest elite creates social, economic and political inequality while growing debt.  It is about the enrichment of a few with the impoverishment of the many and isn’t sustainable. We need democratic government clearly in the service of social wellbeing for everyone everywhere. Not so in a plutocracy whose concern is the well-being of the few power elite and the exploitation of the many non-elite everywhere. Who is robbing who in the last 30 years?  Social justice isn’t “simply” Robin Hood “robbing” the rich and giving to the poor.   We cannot maintain a democratic civilization for all the people without socially just and adequate taxes. Turn a blind eye?  Ignore gross social injustice?  Out of sight, out of mind?   Exploitation of the non-elite by the elite or is it the non-elite exploiting the elite?  Who wants to “win” your hearts and minds and for who’s benefit? Democracy is based on self-evidence that all human beings are created equal.  We should not be forced into a competitive cut-throat anti-social race to become as unequal as possible. Fundamentally, is it democracy or plutocracy?  For social justice for everyone everywhere, we need to stop anti-social exploitation.

Police Week Working Together to Build Better Communities Canadian Police Week is dedicated to increasing community awareness and recognition of policing services while strengthening police-community ties. Police Week encourages community involvement and initiation activities through media awareness and community sponsored events. Police Week is governed by four specific objectives ~ to act as a vehicle in which to reinforce ties with the community; to honour police officers for the public safety and security they provide to their communities; to promote the work police do in their communities; and to inform the community about the police role in public safety and security. Building strong relationships is helping to keep our streets safe across Canada. In Williams Lake, numerous community groups have joined forces with the RCMP to promote safe streets and crime prevention. Currently in Williams Lake, we have a number Community Policing programs where volunteers work with the

detachment and the RCMP members to make Williams Lake a safer community to work, live and play. “There is no doubt that strong community ties help to fight and prevent crime” stated Inspector Warren Brown, the Officer in charge of the Williams Lake RCMP. “We can’t expect these relationships to happen on their own.That is why Police Week is so important to happen in our community.We share our experiences and challenges with our community and not only learn what their priorities are but we also build a strong resources base of dedicated citizens who help keep our community safer.” It may be Citizens on Patrol completing a vehicle patrol, foot patrol or bicycle patrol in the community, the Mounted Citizen on Patrol out patrolling, or one of the many other organizations volunteers working in the community. We also have an active group of youth working with our Citizens on Patrol leader, Bob McIntosh as well as other members. This is a very positive program and rewarding for the youth that are involved.

It is not just the groups you see on the street, either, that help make a difference. We also have very active volunteers in the Restorative Justice, Circles of Strength, Violence Awareness and Prevention Committee, Crime Stoppers, Realty Watch and Operation Red Nose. Business Watch continues to be a great tool to communicate and share information with our valued business partners. Many of our local RCMP members and support staff volunteer their time being mentors, role models and coaches to the youth in our community to initiate and nurture developmental assets in the lives of our youth.

The Cougars lost 2-0 but went on to win two backto-back games over the Nechako Valley Vikings, 4-1 and 3-0. During Monday morning’s semifinal Columneetza’s Sydney Goward scored twice, with Natasha Lewis adding a single. The Cougars then met the Condors in the gold-medal match Monday afternoon but were edged, 2-1. With the win the Condors earned the lone berth to the upcoming provincial championships.

Povelofskie bringing bite to Vipers Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake’s Tyler Povelofskie will begin his junior hockey playing career as a member of the six-time national champion Vernon Vipers. The Vipers, members of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), announced Thursday they’d received commitment from Povelofskie for the 2013/14 season. Povelofskie, 16, began his career in the Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association, before spending his last two seasons with the Prince George Cougars of the BC Major Midget League. “All I can say is that I am very excited to go down there and get the season started,” Povelofskie told the Tribune Monday. “I’m also looking forward to being part of such a great organization.” In 36 games last season he scored 18 goals and 14 assists to go along with 87 penalty minutes. “Tyler is a player that plays in all three zones and competes very hard,” said Vipers head coach Jason Williamson who, incidentally, is also a former Williams Lake resident. “He also has tremendous character and will fit very well into our dressing room.” The Vipers won the RBC Cup junior ‘A’ national title in 1990, 1991,

Tyler Povelofskie 1996, 1999, 2009 and 2010. During the 2013/14 season, the Vipers are slated to host the RBC Cup at the Wesbild Centre in Vernon. Some similarities could be drawn between Povelofskie and Williamson.

They both played through the ranks of the WLMHA and will, if all goes as scheduled, have been players on the Vipers. Williamson then parlayed his junior playing career into an assistant coaching position with the club, before moving on to take the head coaching job. Then there was Chris Crowell — also originally from Williams Lake — who played with the Vipers from 2005 to 2009, including picking up an RBC Cup. Now, Williamson said it’s Povelofskie’s turn. “I’m from there, obviously,” Williamson said. “And then I played in Vernon, was the captain there. Then we had Chris Crowell, and he was the captain, and now we’ll have Ty-

ler.” Williamson said it was Povelofskie’s intangibles that propelled the club’s decision to pursue him. “He was a leader for that team [the Cougars] and I get a good feeling when I talk to him about, just about his character and the way he always puts the team first and I think that’s really important going into a championship season where we have a lot of team-first guys and Tyler’s definitely that,” Williamson said. As hosts of the RBC Cup the Vipers will automatically earn a berth to the tournament. “Tyler’s definitely committed,” he said. “He went through the process ... He was very mature about the whole situation and we definitely pursued him hard.”

sports Local bench presser sets Canadian powerlifting record at nationals Williams Lake powerlifter Blair Fisher is once again a Canadian powerlifting record holder. Fisher was in Calgary, Alta., May 4-5 for the Global Powerlifting Committee and Canadian Powerlifting Federation Canadian Championships competing in the bench press. His first attempt was a 429-pound bench press, which was unsuccessful. But, on Fisher’s second attempt, the 429 pounds went up smoothly. Fisher’s third and final attempt was a successful 440-pound bench press, putting him first in his weight and age class.

With the 440-pound hoist Fisher also set a Canadian record, and with it a personal best. The win qualifies Fisher for the World Powerlifting Congress World Competition coming up in Prague, Czech Republic, in October. Fisher said it was a great meet with approximately 150 lifters competing over the two-day event. He added it was great to have an enthusiastic audience at the meet, which he said added a lot of excitement to the event and helped competitors achieve their bests. Fisher will now rest up, taking a small break before he begins training for the worlds.

Full house for cattlemen’s charity dinner Liz Twan Special to The Tribune There was a full house and a great evening of eating entertaining for the sixth annual Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association Beef Bonanza Charity Dinner. More than 80 guests paid $45 per person to enjoy the prime rib beef dinner, held at Oliver Street Bar and Grill, May 7. The starter beef-course, a delicious teriyaki-marinated kebob was donated by Margett’s Meats while the entree beef, the prime rib, was donated by Save-OnFoods. Numerous other local businesses helped to sponsor the evening with donations of door prizes. Oliver’s contributed by providing the venue and keeping the additional meal-costs as low as possible. The proceeds from the event are directed to a different charity or cause annually. This this year the funds will be directed to an equine assisted learning program, Horse M-Powered, run by Jane Folka which in addition to providing training with horses to children who are well, provides specialized training with horses for children with autism, learning disabilities, and youth with substance abuse problems who are enrolled in a treatment program. Among those in attendance were Cuyler Huffman and his wife Jenny from Riske Creek’s Deer Park Ranch/Cotton Ranch. Cuyler was elected by the directors and membership in February to serve a term as president of the Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association, taking over the position from Duncan Barnett who stepped down to run as a candidate in the provincial election. Cuyler is the youngest CCA president in quite some time. Jenny also serves the association, as the CCA-secretary. The young

Cuyler, in his position as head of the association served as the MC for the evening. Entertainers getting together because they genuinely love making music, then happily singing (playing) for their supper while supporting a worthy cause were musicians Hal Giles, Troy Forcier and Ken Emery.

Also, always happy to obligate and throw his hat into the mix for a charitable cause in his hometown, Frank Gleeson sat down at the microphone to recite some of his rapid-fire original cowboy poetry. This is third time Frank has donated his evening to the Cariboo Cattlemen for their Beef Bonanza fund-raising dinner and his poetry, loaded with western Cariboocontent which is delivered with his own unique twist of humour

and wry sense of timing, never fails to entertain. The location of the microphone, and the fairly high level of noise in the Oliver Street Bar & Grill (the Vancouver Canucks were on screen in what was to be their final 2013 playoff game) made it a bit difficult for all of the guests to hear Frank well as he recited a newly written poem entitled; No Branding, No Republic for Me along with a couple of other classic Frank Gleeson poems.

of professionals has put together beautiful and unique gift baskets for the community, filled with items generously donated by local businesses. There are specialized gift baskets for babies born at Cariboo Memorial Hospital during the month of May. There are also two large summerthemed gift baskets for families available through a free raffle, with draw boxes at places like Interior Health, CDC and the public library. Local speech, language and

hearing professionals include Julia Hodder, speech and language pathologist at CDC; Charlotte Lundee and Heather Awmack, speech and language pathologists at School District #27; Katie Young, audiologist with Interior Health; Alys Wardlaw, speech and language pathologist with Interior Health and Holly Rutherford, speech and language pathology student from UBC in Williams Lake for a fiveweek practicum. Young explained that Speech and

Hearing month highlights important issues for parents, families and communities. “Communication is highly personal for all ages from babies to seniors, and that you can have issues where you need support,” she said. “People need to know where they can access that support.” 
 Hearing and speaking are ways of ‘growing’ your language skills, Lundee says. See ASSESSMENT Page A16

Assessment and training available thoughts,” she explained. “Language can be separate from speech: it can be sign language, written language or body language.” Interior Health and Child Development Centre speech and language pathologists see clients in their homes, at preschools and daycare centres, in the community and in their individual clinics. School district pathologists see kids in their schools, and the Interior Health audiologist sees clients at the health unit and does an early hearing program for newborns at Cariboo Memorial Hospital. They said that their work is very rewarding — watching kids progress over time, and empowering families to help their own child. “It’s very satisfying to see a child become verbal and able to connect with another person,” Hodder said, “and to watch the isolation come to an end.” “I had one mom phone me two years after we worked with her child to say thank you,” Wardlaw said. Young added that it’s always amazing to see the incredible diversity in the kids she sees. “Communication is

“Those skills are important in all kinds of development and in all aspects of life. So many people are affected by communication disorders, and identifying them is the first step in addressing them,” she said. “A lot of times people associate speech with intelligence and personality.” Wardlaw added that public awareness and understanding is very important when it comes to communication barriers. “Without public understanding a person can feel very isolated,” she explained. “Without awareness and understanding they don’t just feel it: they are isolated.” Young added that people can’t see hearing loss and they often don’t understand it. “People with hearing loss have to listen harder and it’s a struggle, even with hearing aids. “Two people can have the same level of hearing loss, but it will impact them very differently,” she said. “Even a mild hearing loss isn’t mild in their lives.” A child between birth and 19 years of age can get free support for speech, language and hearing. Awmak said that early intervention is very important, and the younger the child is the bigger gain you usually see and the smoother the transition to school. She added all Kindergarten students in the district are screened for speech and language and that pathologists work with the kids with the highest needs. “Preschool screening is so important because the earlier the needs are identified, the sooner services can be put in place,” she said. The group explained that if you have concerns about your preschool child’s speech and language development, you can talk to the local Speech and Language Pathologist at Interior Health or at the Child Development

Centre, and that if you have concerns about your child’s hearing, you can speak to your local audiologist at Interior Health. Anybody can refer, and you do not need to see your doctor first. If your child is attending school and you have concerns about your child’s communication skills, you are encouraged to speak to your child’s teacher. Wardlaw said that when it comes to speech and language the family role is crucial. “Talk and sing and play with children from birth,” she suggested. “You and your baby use language, hearing and motor skills while creating a wonderful bond between you.” “There is shortage of services for adults and families in our community,” Lundee said. “The need is great. Autism is on the rise and takes up a lot of our case loads and we are short-handed,” she said. There is currently a vacancy for a speech pathologist at the school district, she adds. “Our community is unique and the areas we serve are huge,” said Young. “It’s the size of New Brunswick. We cover the Chilcotin to Alexandria and Big Lake to 100 Mile House.” One aspect of speech that these pathologists work with is articulation — forming sounds. Problems with articulation can be a result of permanent hearing loss, or fluctuating hearing loss that comes because of something like an ear infection. Other conditions that affect articulation are a cleft palate or lip, difficulty with muscle development — things that can be tied with language development. The cases they work with can range from something like a minor lisp or a stutter to a child unable to speak without a computer. “Language is a simple system of how we communicate,” Wardlaw said. “Without it we can’t communicate. It is carried in your brain and is connected to your
