Area residents march against Monsanto

Wade Paterson


Approximately 300 people marched in Kelowna Saturday in support of an international initiative against Monsanto and genetically modified food. Kelowna was one of about 430 cities to participate in the global march. “Monsanto was targeted because it is the largest seed producer in the world; they’re the largest company involved in genetically modifying organisms,” said Jason Bednar, one of the organizers of Kelowna’s March Against Monsanto. Bednar noted the top issue among many of those who protested Saturday is the proper labelling of all GMO products, which isn’t currently a mandatory requirement. Other issues listed on the March Against Monsanto Kelowna Facebook page include: Protecting the food supply, supporting local farmers, spreading awareness about harmful effects of genetically modified food and promoting organic solutions.

Dual benefits to new high-tech trades course A newly installed automotive spray booth for Okanagan College’s Collision Repair program is reducing carbon emissions while providing students with training on the latest technology. The $170,000 Col-Met spray booth is one of the first pieces of equipment to be installed as part of the phase one funding of the $33-million renovation and expansion of the trades building at the Kelowna campus. “It’s state of the art, what the students are experiencing here,” said collision repair instructor John Euloth. “This is a much more professional unit and more industry-rel-

evant,” said Euloth, who has his Red Seal in refinishing and came to the college last July after working for 20 years in the industry. “Students are now working with the same type of equipment that they are going to experience in a collision shop, and in some cases they’re going to be ahead of the curve. “A lot of shops don’t even have some of the features this unit offers, such as the pulse air drying system for lower VOC waterbased basecoats.” The new unit is larger than what was previously used, which means students can now refinish trucks.

It also features a baking system where temperatures reach 60 C, resulting in a significantly harder finish with both primers and paints. A number of improvements have also resulted in a reduction in fuel and emissions with such features as a side draft exhaust that virtually eliminates overspray and various other improvements that reduce drying time. “The whole process is much more streamlined,” Euloth said. “The speed of putting cars through has quadrupled so we’re now able to do between four and five repairs, where we used to only be able to do one or two. 1

“This means our students are able to get more experience in the same amount of time.” The new spray booth is also helping the college reach its goal of becoming a zero net energy user, said Peter Csandl, manager of operations and energy systems at the college. “We’re trying to reach zero net energy and this is definitely a project that is going to bring us closer to that goal,” Csandl said. “The new booth is about 67 per cent more efficient than the old one.

Health care consultant ready to reveal health centre findings to district council STAFF REPORTER

West Kelowna council will consider several recommendations from its health care consultant when it meets Tuesday night, but continuing the push for an urgent care centre isn’t on the list. The consultant, Joanne Konnert, was hired by the district in September 2012 to assess the health services located in West Kelowna. Interior Health purchased property and developed a functional program for an urgent care centre in 2008. However, other priorities

within Interior Health diverted attention from the project. Since then, groups such as the West Kelowna Residents’ Association have urged local and provincial governments to re-visit the need for urgent care on the Westside. Konnert’s research shows West Kelowna residents’ trips to the emergency room decreased by 20 per cent from 2008 to 2012. “It was a surprise to me— it wasn’t what I was thinking I would see,” Konnert told guests of the West Kelowna Residents’ Association’s annual general meeting in March. At the time, Konnert said

West Kelowna emergency room usage would need to be at least four times higher to justify an urgent care centre in the municipality. Konnert does, however, suggest West Kelowna needs more health services—specifically dealing with mental health and substance use, as well as chronic illnesses. District staff has also recommended council work with Interior Health to improve communication and access to information regarding existing health programs within West Kelowna and examine future partnership opportunities with Interior Health

to expand health services on the Westside. Konnert’s research included interviews with stakeholders in Interior Health, as well as representatives from key organizations such as the Divisions of Family Practice for the Central Okanagan, the Westside Health Network and the West Kelowna Residents’ Association. She also utilized results from a community-wide health care survey, administered by the WKRA last November, which gathered about 300 responses.

TO CELEBRATE their 20th anniversary operating the House of Rose Winery in Kelowna, winery owners Aura Rose and Wouter Van der Hall commissioned metal work artist Roland Derks to build a 20-foot high metal rose weighing in at more than 2,000 pounds. T:5.694”

Metal sculpture of a rose marks winery anniversary The House of Rose Winery unveiled its newest art piece on Saturday, a 20foot high metal rose. Specially designed by local artist Roland Derks, the steel rose weights over 2,000 pounds. “We wanted to create something special to kick off our 20th anniversary, that would be long lasting and interesting to tourists coming to Kelowna,” explains Wouter van der Hall, co-owner with Aura Rose of the Kelowna House of Rose winery. “It just made sense to continue along our theme of roses—and what better way than to create something 20 feet high, one foot for each year the winery has been here.” Among those attending the sculpture unveiling in addition to Derks, were Nan Pellatt representing Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson, Kelowna city councillor Gerry Zimmerman, and Catherine Frechette from Tourism Kelowna. Derks, of Middle Bench Metal A5

works, created the rose using more than 50,000 hammer blows on the flower alone. “We met Roland three years ago at the Kelowna Farmer’s Market,” explained winemaker and winery co-owner Aura Rose. “I saw the miniature roses he makes for sale. I remember asking him if he could make a rose as big as me, and his eyes got wide with excitement. “‘I’d love to,’ he said. So started a long term relationship with the artist, who has now created three large metal roses for the winery, albeit the first two significantly shorter, at six and eight feet, than this last piece.” The House of Rose Winery is located at 2270 Garner Rd. in Kelowna. The winery was originally owned by Aura’s father, Vern Rose, who purchased the property in 1983 and opened the winery in 1993. House of Rose is holding several free events throughout the year to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Dog owners lobby for access to public space on parkway

dKevin Parnell nSTAFF REPORTER s The Lake Country rDog Owner’s Association is hoping plans for a new public space alongside -the old Highway 97 will -eventually include an off —leash dog park with acecess to Wood Lake. - As conceptual plans and public meetings move -along for the new Pelmegwash Parkway, the dog owners association took -their needs directly to District of Lake Country ecouncil at the DLC’s last ,public meeting. n “We just wanted to -come and make sure we are being heard about our twishes for the dog owners -in this area to get some lake front access on the -new design of the Pelmeswash Parkway,” said eSteve Chung, a member of the board of directors for the Lake Country Dog Owners Association. “We love the idea of the whole family-type of things with cycling, walking and everything around there. “Pets are a big part of the family for a lot of people out here.” According to the dog owner’s association, there is virtually no access to water for dogs with the current dog part allotment in Lake Country and only a small place located on Woodsdale Rd. is available right now, but it’s less

than ideal as it is not very accessible for more than a few people. “Water access for dogs is definitely something that we desire,” said Mark Jost, also a board member for the dog owners. “There are a significant number of pets and pet owners that currently use the little dog area off Woodsdale Road but we’d like to reiterate that the Pelmewash proposal include a dog friendly area with access to water.” The dog owners group will formally put together a letter with its wishes for the Pelmewash Parkway and send it to mayor and council as plans move along for the corridor, which will replace the old Highway 97, once the new highway opens expected sometime this year. A Pelemwash Parkway design open house was held May 13 in Lake Country where members of the public were invited to provide ideas and input on the future of Pelmewash Parkway. Discussion was held on ideas for the parkway with the public bringing forth different thoughts including planned hiking, biking or walking trails for the area, the actual road that may or may not be closed off, the use of day use areas and pullouts that currently exist, public art, boats and boat launches as well as other issues

Raising awareness of suicide among men On Wednesday June 12, the Okanagan Suicide Awareness Society and The Men’s Shed Program will take part in the 9th annual Senior’s Safety Fair, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The safety fair is a free event held at the Trinity Baptist Church, (corner of Springfield and Spall in Kelowna) that involves more than 50 different community organizations and businesses coming together in one space to inform, educate and protect seniors. The Okanagan Suicide Awareness Society (OSAS) is a Kelowna-based registered charity whose goal is to raise awareness and to offer support to survivors of suicide loss. Kelowna is one of 14 cities in B.C. that average more than 10 suicide deaths each year. The Men’s Shed Program, while new to Kelowna, is part of a worldwide effort to address the fact that the male suicide rate is approximately four times greater than that for women of the same age group. There is a strong association between isolation, depression and suicide. Good health is based on many factors including feeling good about yourself, being productive and valuable to your community, connecting to friends and maintaining an active body and an active mind. More Information on men’s shed programs, check out the website

such as possible transit to the area as well as the actual name of the parkway. There are no further dates set for public consultation but according to the district of Lake Country, the next open house, expected sometime in June or July, will present two options for the future of Pelmewash. A meeting could be delayed until the

actual opening of the new highway. If you were unable to attend earlier sessions but would like to comment on the report, sketches or process, please email your comments to the Karen Miller, DLC communications officer at kmiller@


DOGS love to romp and Lake Country dog owners hope Pelmewash Parkway will provide space for them to do just that.

Where did all the voters go?


nother election has come and gone, and once again, half of those eligible to vote in this province didn’t bother. That’s just discouraging. So is the fact the BC Liberals can win a clear majority in the legislature with less than half the votes, and thus dictate legislation for the next four years unimpeded. Is it any wonder why the other half feel disenfranchised? When the Conservatives can

garner close to 80,000 votes and still have no representation in the legislature, is it any wonder why so many British Columbians feel like they don’t have a voice? Nevertheless, it’s the system that’s currently in place. There was an opportunity to move to a single-transferable vote system in 2009, but voters turned it down – with only 39 per cent in favour in that referendum. Sixty per cent overall approval and 50 per cent approv-

al in at least 60 per cent of the province’s electoral districts was required to adopt STV, – a system that more fairly reflects the actual number of votes for a candidate and party rather than seats won. However, the support fell far short. Would voter turnout be any more robust if B.C. had adopted an STV system? Impossible to say…although given this province’s reputation of election apathy, it’s doubtful. If there is a bright note to the

May 14 result, it was this: Those who did choose to exercise their democratic right clearly did so with little regard to the inevitable NDP victory consistently predicted by the polling companies and political pundits. Clearly, the majority of those who turned out to the polls were voting for what they thought was right, not what they were told. —Abbotsford News

Kid upbraids giant corp; or: Parent uses child for publicity


cDonalds has its detractors. That’s not new. One British couple, who published a pamphlet critical of McDonalds food in the mid-1980s in England, was sued for libel by the restaurant giant and, after 10 years in court, the case became the longest-running lawsuit in British legal history. McDonald’s won. Movie maker Morgan Sperlock made a popular, Academy Award-nominated documentary called Super Size Me that detailed his 30 day-diet of nothing but McDonald’s food. The movie was critical of the nutritional value of the food Sperlock ate.

City ‘outstanding’ at cleaning beaches

To the editor: I just finished reading a letter from Sepp Mattiasch regarding the City of Kelowna’s lack of care for the public beaches. e (Kelowna Beaches are a Messy Disgrace, May 24 Capital News.) I will say up front that I totally disagree with the comments.

(As an aside, I was amused by the shift [the writer makes] from beaches in Kelowna to the penal system in Austria— very amusing! In spring 2012, there was a lot of flooding in Mission Creek and others resulting in logs and debris of all kinds in the water and especially on shore.

As an open water swimmer representing a group that swims at Gyro Beach from 6 a.m. throughout the day from February through October (and longer for some), I have to say the city does an outstanding job of cleaning up Gyro Beach and I suspect others as well. When I arrive between 7 and

8:30 a.m. every day there are workers already out with large ride-on equipment meant for sifting all material from the beaches and water. When the runoff was particularly bad last year they had heavy trucks on the beaches prior to public access, loading and hauling away logs and other debris. The sand

is raked clean daily and I expect to see the same this season as well. I would challenge the complainer to head down to the Kelowna public beaches at 6 a.m. and watch the amount of activity in progress by the hard working city staff. Gerry Moyer, Kelowna


Baseball fields ‘pristine’ despite heavy rains

To the editor: s I’m certain the City of Kelowna staff receives its share of complaints or criticism about care and condition of city-owned property such as the parks and recreation facilities we have in our community. We’d like to give them our big congratulations on a job well done. Recently our Ogopogo Senior Mens slo-pitch ball team hosted an annual slo-pitch tournament here at the Mission Sports Fields. We were able to attract 24 mens and ladies

teams and many were from out of town communities such as Edmonton, Calgary, Burnaby, Kamloops, Vancouver Island all leaving behind their hard-earned money at our local restaurants, hotels/motels and other retail outlets. As you would likely know, the Mission Sports complex includes six ball diamonds and are located next to Mission Creek near the H2O Centre. Out-of-town participants over these past few years have mentioned their admiration of our

entire sports complex at Mission Sports Fields and in particular this year, about the much-improved condition of those ball fields. You will recall, we had about two days of almost non-stop rain last Tuesday evening through Thursday. Our committee became quite concerned about even being able to hold the event this year as the Mission Sports Fields were temporarily closed down due to the extreme wet weather. Finally, Thursday morning the City Parks

maintenance staff, with some very creative measures, were able to start draining excess water off the fields and by Friday afternoon those ball diamonds were in pristine condition. They remained that way throughout the weekend which led to a very successful ball tournament not only for our group but, for many retailers throughout our city. Our sincere thanks goes to Chris Babcock and Sarah Semeniuk and their entire maintenance staff at the City of Kelowna—Recreation & Cultur-

al Services for just an outstanding effort to ensure the ball parks were not only ready but, in such excellent condition this past weekend. Chris and his staff have been a pleasure to work with over these past three years and we know that will continue in the future. Thanks again Chris and Sarah. On behalf of the 2013 Ogopogo Sr Mens 60+ Slo-Pitch Team, Grant Snow (#8), Kelowna


Senate an example of mess we’re leaving kids To the editor: Regarding the smell from the east—Ottawa—the smell of stale senators stealing our tax dollars There has been much in the news lately regarding how much all the senators cost the tax payers of Canada. It is a large amount—equal to a new state of the art hospital—each year we keep feeding the fat cats who are appointed by a dictator prime minister, yes the one who promised senate reform or abolishment then he appoints another 58 fat pigs to eat at the tax payer trough. When will the voters of Canada have had

enough of this and turf all this mess in the landfill? The senators have the balls to “self examine” their own senators who may “seem” to have crossed the magic line—and were caught up padding or stealing from the trough. It would almost seem comical if it did not cost us so much money—comedy is good for the health. All this waste just keeps pilling up in our national debt and no one cares..  The senators and their $90,000 payment from the right hand man in the PMO is difficult to explain to the average Canadian who earns much less for a whole year of work. I will just write Little Mike a cheque for

$90,000 to get him off the hook—the media may be looking in the window to see all this slime going across the desk—we can’t have that happen. So, with a provincial election in B.C. we had a tough time to have 52 per cent of eligible voters turn out to select a new government. Is this the new Canadian—“I just don’t give a damn!?”  Sad time isn’t it. Please don’t leave this mess for our children to clean up. Jorgen Hansen, Kelowna

Brilliant marketing for website Waters from A8 view requests from media organizations across Canada, the US and her story has been reported by media outlets around the world. Her few minutes in front of that microphone in Chicago last week has done more to help advance her crusade for healthy eating among her peers than would ever have come about if McDonald’s had simply stopped distributing toys with Happy Meals without her asking. You can’t

buy the publicity this story has provided for the Today I Ate A Rainbow website and program. Every media story written about her, mentions the website. Hannah should be applauded for what she is doing. But the whole David and Goliath nature of her question to Thompson seemed scripted. For the record, Thompson denied McDonald’s sells “junk” food, listed healthy choices the restaurant chain has added to its

menus like apple slices and salads, said he would also like to see kids eat more fruits and vegetables too and added, his kids eat McDonald’s food and he has no problem with that. But Hannah didn’t seem impressed with Thompson’s answer. So, she gave him her card and suggested he e-mail her so they can talk more. If he’s as smart as Hannah, he’ll take her up on the offer.

Saying no to GMO Monsanto from A1 Signs at the demonstration ranged from “Hell no, GMO” to “I am not a science experiment.” “Essentially we the people are lab rats—they don’t know the long-term consequences of these GMOs,” said Bednar.

He added the goal is to continue to build upon Saturday’s momentum. “The campaign will continue,” he said.

Looking after the backwoods



THE Alleluia Ringers bell choir, with music director Nikki Attwell standing on the left.


Bells and voices create musical blend A concert that will explore Music from the Heartland will be performed on Sunday, June 2, 2:30 p.m., at the First United Church, 721 Bernard Ave. in Kelowna. On stage will be the Alleluia Ringers bell choir, joined by percussionist Sue MacDonald, pianist Marvin Dickau, clarinetist Rebekah Medland, and the Alleluia Voices vocal choir. The timpani—an instrument not usually seen outside of a symphony or band concert hall—is featured in Dance of the Western Sky for bell choir

and percussion, as well as the rarely heard Sonatina for Three Timpani and Piano by Russian composer Alexander Tcherepnin. Pianist Marvin Dickau, minister of music at First United as well as executive director of the Kelowna Kiwanis Music Festival, will join Sue MacDonald for that exciting work in four short movements. Clarinetist Rebekah Medland is another welcome addition to the program. The Alleluia Voices choir will perform a fun

set of cowboy/western tunes. The Alleluia Ringers are delighted to be collaborating with percussionist Sue MacDonald in a new capacity. It was through the traditional Christmas concert shared with the Merrie Pipers recorder orchestra, which MacDonald directs, that plans were first discussed for a concert featuring bells and percussion. She is also active with the Kelowna Community Concert Band and is a member of the board of the Kelowna Community Concerts Association.

The Alleluia Ringers, an active part of the music program at First United Church for seven years, under the direction of Nikki Attwell. Over the past two years, the group has expanded their set of handbells first to four, and then to five octaves making them one of only a handful of five-octave bell choirs in British Columbia. The Alleluia Ringers are members of the B.C. Guild of English Handbell Ringers. In 2011, they attended the Canadian national handbell festival, Ringing

Link, in Calgary, and have attended B.C. provincial festivals as well, including the 2013 BCGEHR Spring Ring, earlier this month in Kamloops. This event in Kelowna is a fundraiser in support of the ministries of First United Church. Tickets are $10 (children 12 & under $5) and are available from Mosaic Books (downtown), the church office, and subject to availability, at the door. Patrons attending the concert are advised to arrive in time to find street parking, as parking in the church’s lot will be limited.

’ve written about this FROM THE issue before, but a reGROUND UP cent Sunday drive up to Bullman Lake reminded me again of the seriousness our human impact has on the backDon woods. I’ve lived long enough Burnett now to see the big picture and it does not bode well with the future unless we all become aware of what is happening and collectively do something about it. Ever since the first time I took the drive up Postil Lake road with my soon to be father-in-law in 1969, the changes in scenery due to logging and the “improvements” in the road to accommodate it have been monumental. However, the practice of logging itself is not the real threat up there. Fortunately, the areas logged over the years have been replanted and are now looking quite pleasant compared to the condition after being clear-cut. I must say I don’t know enough about the practice of reforestation to comment on the impact on wildlife and other native plants. I know for sure when we disturb a natural area in the process of landscaping a property, the invasive weeds rush in and take over. It’s most likely the same in the woods. The real threat, however, is the relatively recent invasion of recreational machinery. The impact the all-terrain vehicles whether they be 4x4s, dirt bikes or 4-wheeled ATVs are having at present can’t be mitigated by anyone. And it was obvious to me that little is being done to curb the practice of plowing through ponds and creeks under the guise of having good family fun to the detriment of the fragile ecosystem. While I acknowledge there are many and quite possibly the majority of recreational riders who stick to the existing roads and trails and avoid puddles ponds and creeks, these people should be proactive in policing and educating their fellow riders who give all a bad name. We have to treat the backwoods as though it were someone’s private back yard and not a dirt bike park. I can’t imagine what that drive up to Postil Lake Road will look like in 50 years if we stay on the same path. But there is something positive some humans are doing to help address this issue. The Nature Trust of British Columbia is an organization dedicated to preserving and managing eco-sensitive properties throughout our beautiful province. Together with the support of caring people, they have secured over 70,000 hectares (170,000 acres) of critical habitat across the province for wildlife, plants and fish. Look up the website and read all about the great work that is being done for our future. And join us at the fifth annual Earth Wind Fire event this June 21 in support of the Nature Trust of British Columbia. Together we can make a difference. Tickets can be purchased online at the Nature Trust website and a complete description of one of the best evenings of the year with executive chefs, local wineries, entertainment and dancing.

Two elderly drivers were sent to Kelowna General Hospital last Sunday after being involved in a three-vehicle collision in West Kelowna. The crash occurred just after noon at the Westside Road entrance to a mobile home park at

1525 Westside Rd. A car, driven by a 69-year-old woman, a resident of West Kelowna, was pointed northbound, stationary and yielding to oncoming traffic before turning left. A Ford F350 pickup struck the car from behind pushing it

into the oncoming southbound lane. The car hit the side of an oncoming GMC pickup traveling southbound, driven by a 60-yearold man from Harrison Hot Springs. The woman driver was taken

to hospital with serious but not life threatening injuries. The 28-year-old Kelowna driver of the truck was issued a ticket under the Motor Vehicle Act for driving without due care and attention.

A hard day’s night in the public eye I f you carry out your work in the public eye, I think you have to expect there are going to be good times and bad times. If your name happens to be Duffy, Wallin, Dix, or Ford, you’ve likely had better weeks than the last few. The news media, whether on the airwaves or in print or online, is abuzz with discussion of the fates and fortunes of these public figures. Though, as is sometimes the case, I wonder whether the discussion may be missing some key points. Adrian Dix presided over an epic election collapse by B.C.’s New Democratic Party. Possibly only members of the Toronto Maple Leafs know just how badly Dix must feel about his last minute stumble. The talk, since, has seemingly been all about how the B.C. Liberal leader Christy Clark out-campaigned Dix and, in doing so, snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Dix commented, “I needed to work on my skills, which are not the same ones you need to be premier. I could have been far better on the campaign.” I’d have to disagree with the view that campaigning skills are not ones needed to be premier of a province. Regardless, my feeling is that the focus on Dix as NDP leader and his lacklustre campaign effort misses the real issue. I think the question the provincial NDP, and all voters in B.C., might ask themselves is: “Why, given all the conditions necessary for a sweeping electoral victory, did the NDP—as a party— end up going backwards in this election?” The answer, I’d say, goes far beyond whether Dix is photogenic enough, made the story of his life available enough, or kissed enough babies on the campaign trail (I’m not certain that politicians actually still do that—or

microscopic inspection of their travel expenses, per diems, housing claims, etc. really misses the important question. It seems to me Canadians should be asking the question, “Why are formerly prominent members of the news media sitting in Canada’s Senate in the first place?” Reporters will be the first to howl when their independence is in any way threatened, that freedom of the press and journalistic integrity are indispensable features of any truly democratic society. I have no quarrel with that concept. Yet, here are two individuals who made a living (to a greater or lesser extent) reporting on the activities of Canada’s government and its federal political parties. Upon leaving their high-profile media jobs they were appointed to highly political positions in which they have been actively campaigning and fundraising on behalf of the governing party. What’s the issue? Well, isn’t it plain to see that the prospect or promise of a political appointment must (not might, but must) have some impact on a journalist’s integrity? If the prospect of a political payoff has become the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for journalists, surely we would all be fools to think that their objectivity won’t be compromised along the way. We should, in my view, be able to expect that members of the news media will isolate themselves from these sorts of appointments. All in all, it’s been a busy few weeks for people working in the public eye. For Adrian Dix, the good news is that the worst may be over. For Ford and for Wallin and for Duffy, well, the excrement may just now be hitting the fan.

The winners of the 2013 Dragons’ Den Edition of the Young Entrepreneur Competition will be announced at an Awards Dinner slated for Thursday, May 30, at Okanagan College. The competition, now in its 19th year, is for students in Grades 7 to 12, a joint initiative between the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, School District 23 Career Life Programs, and Okanagan College School of Business. QHR Technologies Inc. is the Platinum sponsor of the Awards Dinner. “As a rapidly growing technology company that highly values innovation, we are extremely pleased to sponsor this exciting entrepreneur competition held near our company headquarters in Kelowna,” said Al Hildebrandt, CEO of QHR Technologies Inc. With the Central Okanagan having one of the highest rates of entrepreneurship in Canada, the aim of the program is to provide youth in our community with hands-on learning experiences while creating excitement towards the topic of entrepreneurship. Seventy Four teams of one to five students signed up to compete, ending with the top eight middle school teams and the top eight secondary school teams. The students had to complete three tasks to show the judges the feasibility of their business idea—create a product, a marketing plan and a financial plan. Students began to work hard on their business ideas in February. Teams were judged throughout the competition by business professionals (the “Dragons”) from many areas of the community. Out of the 59 teams that started in the competition, 43 teams were eliminated following the judging of Task #1 and Task #2. Sixteen student teams competed in the third and final task of the Young Entrepreneur Competition and have been invited to the Awards Dinner as finalists.

Harnessing the spirit of potential business innovators I entrepreneurial spirit.” Deep down inside each of us has an entrepreneurial spirit. The term entrepreneurship doesn’t apply strictly to our careers and the way we go about making money; it applies, I espouse, to every part of our life. “What?” you ask. Did someone change the definition of the term entre-

skills. An entrepreneur generally is not a 9-to5 person who collects a paycheque every week or two. Entrepreneurs all over the world, have a true and innate pioneering spirit. They don’t just have a dream; they follow through to make it happen. Successful entrepreneurs have their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. For example, being an entrepreneur is similar to sitting in a kayak with the waves breaking over your head. The force of the water is much greater than the force of you trying to pad-

dle. But if you make the right moves by focusing your concentration and being diligent and careful, you can get to where you want to go. As a serial entrepreneur myself, I’ve learned that you must paddle as fast as the current itself. If you don’t, that current will push you sideways and take you off course. Then you become vulnerable to the waves that will flip you over. Successful entrepreneurs feel that a life without risk is a life without living. Who wants to live a life without risks? You will never achieve any success or happiness in life without taking risks —no matter what the subject of your focus may be. Another key to the successful entrepreneurial spirit powering is doing something with your life that you love. The people who are successful in business and industry and in their personal lives are truly doing something they love to do. You surely need to be flexible when harnessing your entrepreneurial spirit. Sometimes, you have to follow your heart and know when to change course and investigate something new. I often subscribe to this credo “what you may perceive to be an entrepreneurial opportunity, may not be an entrepreneurial opportunity for you, but may, in truth be —for

others.” Changing careers is difficult. You wonder if you’re throwing something away for which you studied long and hard. It’s not smart to change merely if you don’t have a good reason. Consider the change only if you can clearly see that it will improve your life, the lives of those you love and it makes you happy. Harnessing the entrepreneurial spirit also means wanting to run your venture the way you may run your life. To run a successful venture, you will want to increase the number of clients. To run a successful life, you will want to increase the number of successful friendships you may have. The parallels are endless between an entrepreneurial venture and one’s personal life journey. For every example of the entrepreneurial spirit in life, there is a parallel in business. Unleashing the power of the entrepreneurial spirit means recognizing that you cannot separate the two parallels. Being an entrepreneur is a way of life. All you need to do is get yourself into the entrepreneurial mindset, and you’ll find the “power” to make things happen. Look around you, my friends, would the success of identifiable corporations or social organ-

preneurship and forget to tell us? Not really. Strictly speaking, entrepreneurship still refers to starting and operating one’s own entrepreneurial venture, a professional endeavour that requires independence, creativity, innovation, individuality and risk. But honestly, you can apply to your personal life the same skills that make you a successful entrepreneur. In the traditional business sense, an entrepreneur is a person who doesn’t wish to be locked into a job. He or she is someone who possesses many

Joseph Schumpeter, a noted economist and widely considered the father of the entrepreneurship theory, coined the German term “Unternehmergeist,” meaning “ the

izations have come to be without the evolution of an entrepreneurial credo to guide them? I think not. More importantly, would they have ever come into existence without the spirit of entrepreneurship? So, go for the gold. Ignite and preserve the power of the entrepreneurial spirit, but try to put in place what your company, your organization and your dream will need to grow. You really can have your cake and eat it too, but it takes some courage and faith—and I know you have it. In keeping with the entrepreneurial spirit, let me invite you to explore seven characteristics that will aid you to foster your entrepreneurial spirit. Before I offer these seven pearls of wisdom, may I also offer these words to close for this week’s column— the unusual character traits of an entrepreneur often define success or failure. One elusive characteristic that distinguishes an entrepreneur from the crowd is their natural willingness to assume risk in order to develop their entrepreneurial dream. The other sweeping characteristic across the globe is an extreme confidence level. Finally, here are the seven distinguishing characteristics that will aid you to be in this exclusive entrepreneurial category: • Fervent faith that you can change things for the better; an unshakable belief that you can devise better, quicker, cheaper ways of presenting products or services needed in the marketplace • Always having a solution in sight for any complexities and ability to overcome challenges effortlessly • Optimistic about the prospects of your venture and each venture you become associated with in your entrepreneurial life • Independent mindset • High energy levels, unwavering mental stamina and internal motivation • Willingness to live for and invest in the future • Willingness to experiment and a joyous penchant for innovative @ and creative thinking Joel Young is founder of Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society.

Business code of ethics translates into our personal lives O ne of the requirements for Certified General Accountants is continuous learning and upgrading. In view of that, one of the requirements of continuous learning and upgrading is to take a mandatory ethics seminar or some sort of ethics training every three years. I think that this requirement is unique to CGAs and I hope that this requirement pass-

view. Many probably think, “How dare they (the association) tell me how to run my business.’” But I think it is just as easy if not easier to run an ethical business than an unethical one. I like to sleep at night, so if I were to run an unethical business, I wouldn’t be able to sleep because I’d be too busy worrying about the monkey on my back. After taking the course this year, I thought

June 1st & 2nd

that there must be a way to promote this to businesses in general, so I’ve done a bit of research. The first step appears to be to develop a code of ethics for the business that outlines some business practices that you will follow. A good start is with a mission statement and then to expand on that. Most businesses would probably include a code indicating that they would deal honestly with

customers, vendors and each other. Perhaps another code would indicate that there would be fairness and respect in all dealings. Perhaps another might state that there would be a fee structure that is to be followed. The code of ethics outlines the general code of conduct of the business. Then, the next step would be to create some policies and procedures to

determine how the business would meet the nature of the code. The most important way of making a code work is by using it and that needs to come from upper management. If the business has a code, but the owner never follows it, what do you think the likelihood that the employees would follow it would be? Probably not many, if any. So business owners need to lead by example. If you have pictured yourself leading in a certain kind of ethical business, you now need to act ‘as if’ so that your attitude will be passed onto your employees. Usually if there is a bad attitude in a company or a department of a large organization, that attitude originated with the management. So that attitude will need to be changed by management before the company or department will improve. The next step would be training. You need to let your staff know what your code of ethics is and give them training on the various ethical issues that they may encounter in their position. Of course it’s not possible to anticipate every issue, but if you provide a framework for the employee to work with, then it becomes easier for them to solve ethical dilemmas. For example, CGAs follow a five-step ethical decision framework. The first step would be to identify the problem, determining how your code of ethics was breached and what the issues and potential issues of the breach are. The second step is to identify the stakeholders.

Who is involved and how they might get hurt by the breach. The third step is to specify feasible alternatives meaning that you need to try to determine what all the possible solutions to this problem might be—no matter how bizarre. The fourth step is to decide which of the possible solutions presented in the previous step would be in the spirit of your code of ethics. Step five is to make and defend your choice. Always document what you decided and how you got there. Some of us when faced with these ethical dilemmas would just wish that they would go away and solve themselves, but that is rarely the case. If you hope something will just go away, it will probably just re-appear later on in something that is even a larger problem, so it’s best to deal with these issues as they arise. Again, it is a matter of sleep. I have no knowledge as to which professional bodies use or have a code of ethics, but I do challenge every one of them to review their code and uphold it. For me, being a CGA and following the CGA Code of Ethical Principles and Rules of Conduct (CEPROC) has become so insidious to me, now it has become an almost automatic part of my entire life and not just my business life.

Watching for congenital abnormalities in young pets W

e all know that when the body ages there are more incidences of diseases, pains and physical abnormalities. However, similar to buying a brand new car, most people, when adopting a young animal, expect it to be anatomically normal.

if you’ll need to take your brand new car to the garage to get fixed, this is usually how people also feel about their new pet’s body condition. Unfortunately, not all beings are made the same. Sometimes there are “assembly errors” in the development of cats and dogs. These types of abnormalities are called congenital problems. These are usually anatomical mishaps, occurring in the in utero development. One of the most common congenital abnormalities is relate to the knees. This particular knee abnormality is called patellar luxation. The patella is the kneecap. It is situated between the two long bones of the back leg, the femur and the tibia. In normal leg anat-

omy the patella is situated in a special groove in the femur (the thigh bone), attached to the two long bones by tendons and muscle. The patella location in the femur groove allows normal gliding motion in flexion and extension of the knee joint. Patellar luxation is a condition in which the patella jumps out of the groove sideways when the knee is bent. This causes the leg to “lock up” with the paw up in the air. The condition has four grades of severity. At grade 1, the patella is normally in the femoral groove but can be manually manipulated outside of the groove. The 2nd and 3rd grades are the most common, in which the patella intermittently slides out-

side of the groove. At the most severe 4th grade, the patella is permanently situated outside of the groove. Patellar luxation is the most common congenital abnormality in dogs, affecting about seven per cent of puppies. Small breeds are most commonly affected especially Boston terriers, Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, miniature poodles,and Yorkshire terriers. The incidence in large breed dogs has risen over the last 10 years. Beside being a congenital abnormality, patellar luxation can also be caused in a normal dogs as a result of a traumatic injury. The most common sign associated with the condition is limping. The duration and the severity of the limping de-

pends on the grade of the condition. The more severe the condition is, the more frequent the limping episodes are. In a typical patellar luxation case, the limping will be intermittent and will be resolved spontaneously, sometimes after only few minutes. The diagnosis of the condition is done by a manual manipulation of the joint. An x-ray exam can confirm the presence of the patella outside of its normal groove. Unfortunately, conservative treatment has little to offer, and the best permanent treatment for patellar luxation is by a corrective surgery. Usually the surgery has a great rate of success, and allows the pet to have a good quality of life. Over time, if stays

untreated the condition worsens as severe arthritis develops, which may lead to permanent damage and compromise mobility. If your dog shows signs of permanent or intermittent episodes of limping on his back leg, along with yelping and signs of discomfort, take it to be checked by your vet. Early treatment of patellar luxation can yield a long, happy and pain free life for your dog. Ask your vet to assess your dog’s knee condition to make sure your dog does not have a knee problem.

THe 26TH annual BC CHIlDren’s HOsPITal’s MIraCle WeekenD

BC Children’s Hospital helps kids get care closer to home Long drives are no big deal for Vernon resident Eric Olsen, but one trip that Olsen, and his wife, Tracey Reade, would rather not make is the five-hour, 450-kilometre trek to BC Children’s Hospital where their five-yearold daughter Morgan Olsen receives care for epilepsy. Olsen drives a truck for a living and is often on the road so he and Reade try to keep their trips to BC Children’s to two days, but this still comes with its share of inconvenience. There’s the cost of travel, missed days of work, and the issue of accommodation. “It’s stressful on the family,” says Reade, noting that the earlier trips were traumatic for Morgan. “She loves travelling now, but the trips were not part of her routine and she didn’t like different hospital settings.” Routine is important for Morgan, who also has autism. Not only does she have to deal with frightening seizures caused by her epilepsy, she is upset by noise and sometimes “melts down,” Reade says. Morgan and her parents have made four trips to BC Children’s Hospital since she was diagnosed in 2007. Fortunately, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital called Child Health BC has made life easier for the family. Since 2008 Morgan has seen BC Children’s Hospital neurologist Dr. Mary Connolly five times without having to travel further than Kelowna. Connolly has met with Morgan twice in Kelowna,

where she holds a pediatric neurology clinic three times a year, and three times using a video-conferencing facility in Vernon. “The fact that Morgan has had five of nine visits with Dr. Connolly so close to home is exactly what we’re looking for,” says Dr. Maureen O’Donnell, executive director of Child Health BC. Child Health BC’s activities took off after Overwaitea Food Group became the lead benefactor with a pledge of $20 million in support in 2007. TELUS and Scotiabank later made gifts of $5 million and $1 million, respectively. This support had an immediate impact, says O’Donnell. Pediatric clinics established with Child Health BC’s support in Nanaimo and Prince George have thousands of patient visits annually; additional travelling clinics are staffed by BC Children’s caregivers in communities across the province; and over 1,000 health professionals have participated in Child Health BC’s workshops. O’Donnell credits Overwaitea Food Group’s donation with Child Health BC’s growing reach across the province, noting that it’s a perfect fit for an organization with a presence in so many BC com-

munities. Overwaitea Food Group President Darrell Jones agrees. “We’re committed to the health and wellness of kids and families in BC,” says Jones. “We’ve been proud to support BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades – and with the help of our communities, we’ve contributed millions of dollars toward hospital improvement projects, advocacy programs and important research initiatives. We’re grateful for the amazing support of our local communities, team members, customers and supplier partners who have all played a key role in making this fundraising success possible.” Child Health BC is part of a larger transformation in the way BC’s children receive care, says Larry Gold, president of BC Children’s Hospital and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. The transformation also includes the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. “We want to ensure children have access to a consistent standard of care, whether they live in Smithers, Campbell River or Castlegar; and there will always be children who need care that’s only available in a children’s hospital,” says Gold. BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has raised close to $170 million, including Overwaitea Food Group’s gift and $25 million from Teck Resources Limited, in its $200-million capital campaign to support construction of the new hospital and Child Health BC. Gold says that the new hospital, which will open in 2018, will be family-friendly, making it easier for families from outside the Lower Mainland to remain with their children. Beyond the money being raised for the new hospital and Child Health BC, Gold says the hospital also counts on donations of about $14 million a year to support research, equipment purchases and training. On June 1 and 2 BC Children’s Hospital Foundation will hold its annual Miracle Weekend celebration on Global BC, to raise the millions the hospital needs to cover its urgent annual needs. “Every year people from across the province make donations in support of the hospital and it makes a huge difference,” says Gold. “Morgan Olsen is proof of that.” Meanwhile, Reade says her daughter Morgan is happy to be able to attend kindergarten and visit with friends and staff at the NONA Child Development Centre in Vernon where she spends her afternoons. “She’s just a very bubbly, loving five-year-old who loves to dance, colour and do puzzles. We’re grateful to Dr. Connolly and BC Children’s Hospital that she can enjoy these simple things in life.”

JUNE 1 & 2, 2013 On June 1 and 2, tune in to Miracle Weekend, broadcast live from BC Children’s Hospital, on Global BC from 7:00pm on Saturday, June 1 until 5:30pm on Sunday, June 2 The 26th annual BC Children’s Hospital’s Miracle Weekend is a two-day celebration that showcases the best of BC Children’s Hospital: patients, their families, caregivers and supporters who come from every corner of BC. BC Children’s Hospital receives over 200,000 visits from patients from across the province every year. Donations help the hospital deliver the best in care every day, and are helping to prepare for the future by supporting the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital and better access to care for children in or close to their home communities. Please support BC Children’s Hospital.

At the Overwaitea Food Group, we’re very proud of our longstanding commitment to investing in the health of kids and their families. We’re grateful to everyone who supports us in this effort. Our team members, customers and suppliers have all played a key role in our fundraising success over the years. We’ve been supporting BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades, and we’ve raised millions of dollars in support of capital improvement projects, important research initiatives and advocacy programs designed to help keep our kids safe by reducing preventable injuries. In 2007, we made a $20 million pledge to support Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital that helps get kids in BC get the care they need, closer to home. Since then, we’ve raised more than $10.7 million toward our goal, and Child Health BC has been able to put this concept into action in a number of communities throughout BC. We are grateful for the amazing commitment and fund raising efforts driven by OFG team members who encourage the generosity of our customers and suppliers.

Sports a family affair for Johnson sisters Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Scan the roster of pretty much any female sports team at Immaculata Regional High School and chances are awfully good the name Johnson will appear—and in many cases more than once. All four of Kelowna’s Johnson sisters are multi-sport athletes at Immaculata, including being teammates with the Mustangs’ senior girls soccer team. Olivia, 18, Hannah, 16, Emma, 15, and Kate, 13, will be wearing Mustangs’ colours this week at the B.C. A girls’ soccer championship in Rossland. To say varsity sports keeps the Johnson girls busy would be an understatement, as all four also excel on school teams in volleyball, basketball and cross country. When he met the oldest of the four sisters five

years ago, Immaculata athletic director Blaine Melnyk sensed there was something special about the Johnsons—and not just athletically. “I remember when Olivia first came to our school, she asked me if she could play all the sports, she wanted to be involved in everything she possibly could,” said Melnyk. “All four of them have turned out to be the same that way. And it’s not just sports, it’s volunteering, student council, events in the community…and top of it they’re great students. They have the full package and are super positive kids to have at our school.” That the Johnson girls are high achievers both in sports and academics doesn’t come as a surprise to those who know the Johnson family best. Their dad, Rob Johnson, is a former football player at UBC and the current Athletic Director


ALL IN THE FAMILY: The Mustangs senior girls’ soccer team features four siblings from Kelowna’s Johnson family. Olivia (from left), Hannah, Emma and Kate are all multi-sport athletes at Immaculata. at UBC Okanagan, while their mom, Elaine, is a former national-calibre gymnast. Dino Gini, the head coach of the gold-medal winning Immaculata girls’ basketball team, said within the Johnson family, the apples don’t

fall too far from the tree. “The foundation their parents have given them is huge, it’s a such an important part of who they are,” said Gini, who coached Olivia, Hannah and Emma on the basketball team. “(Rob and Elaine) have coached them,

supported them since they were young and have kept them active in sports. All the girls, their compete level is tops and they’re leaders…and they’re quality people on top of that.” As valuable members of the senior girls’ soc-

cer team, Mustangs’ head coach Paul Freire said the Johnson girls are a pleasure to coach. “They’re great girls and strong competitors,” Freire said. “They use their speed and smarts, but each one brings something a little different. They’re well-rounded players.” As the oldest of the four Johnson siblings, Olivia has set a relatively high standard for her sisters to follow. She was named MVP at the B.C. A girls basketball championship this March in Prince George, then in April picked up the high school female athlete of the year honour at Kelowna’s Civic Awards. For Olivia, sports and family have been vital parts of her life for as long as she can remember. “We all started (athletics) when we were about four, Kate even earlier than that, so we really haven’t known any-

thing else,” said Olivia, who will join the UBCO women’s basketball program this fall. “You could definitely say we have a passion for sports. It’s really a lot of fun to play on teams together, too, it brings us closer together. We’re all competitive too, so we push each other to be better.” From Rob and Elaine Johnson’s perspective, watching their four daughters compete at a high level in sports has been both an enjoyable satisfying experience— even if balancing their hectic schedules isn’t always easy. “We try and get them to everything they want to be involved in and we really enjoy being there to watch and support them,” Rob Johnson said. “We like to have them active, and typically active kids are high-achieving kids.

KSS Owls battle Yale in B.C. quarterfinals Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Owls have already realized their main goal for the high school rugby season—a top-eight finish. But the Okanagan’s top senior boys squad still has plenty to play for in 2013. On Wednesday in Abbotsford, the Owls will battle the Yale Lions in the quarterfinals of the B.C. School Sports rugby championship. The victor will move onto the semifinals and

will be guaranteed a topfour finish in the province. The Owls’ best showing in the last two decades was a sixth-place finish in 2010. KSS guaranteed itself a top-eight placing this year thanks to a 66-3 drubbing of Sardis Secondary (Chilliwack) in the round of 16 on Saturday afternoon at the Parkinson Rec Centre. It was only the second time in the program’s recent history that the Owls have won a first-round match. “The boys played

amazing, they’re definitely peaking at the right time of year,” said Owls head coach Dave Marfleet, whose team was ranked fifth heading into provincials. “Our whole team stepped up. May 25 (playoffs) has been on the calendar for a while, so it was nice to play that game and get the win. To get into the top eight again is a huge accomplishment.” As for their next opponent, Yale, the Owls lost to the Lions 17-0 in an exhibition game early in the season. Marfleet expects his

club to be better prepared for the challenge this time around. “We feel like we’re way better than we were back then,” said Marfleet. “Hopefully we can give them a good game and see of we can get into the top four.” The winner of Wednesday’s match will, in all likelihood, face No. 1-ranked St. George’s in the semifinals on Thursday. The final round of games at provincials in Abbotsford will go on Saturday.

Cameron closes out her Thunderbirds’ golf career Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The last and best season of Haley Cameron’s university golf career will come to a close this week in Quebec. The 22-year-old Kelowna product is playing in the individual portion of the Golf Canada University/College Championship beginning Tuesday the Val des Lacs Golf Club near Montreal. Cameron and her UBC Thunderbirds teammates are fresh off a second-place showing in team competition at the NAIA national women’s championship last week in Lincoln, Nebraska. While the T’Birds were unable to defend their team title from 2012,

Haley Cameron Cameron turned in one of the finest individual performances of her fouryear stint at UBC. She finished fourth overall in a field of 88 golfers from across North America, carding a fourday score of 306 (76-7674-80), 18-over par. If not

for a difficult back nine (+6) in the final round, her final placing could have been ever better. Still, Cameron was pleased with both the team’s and her own results in her final NAIA tournament. “We came in with high hopes of defending last year’s title, but a runner-up finish still says a lot about the strength of this team,” said Cameron, a KSS grad who played in the final group on Friday in Lincoln. “It’s definitely the most united group of girls I’ve played with in my four years, and I honestly can’t imagine a better finish to my NAIA career than walking up 18 in the final group of the national championship to see my team supporting

My last nine holes were the shakiest of the four-day event, but it was really fun to experience playing with that kind of pressure and opportunity.” As for this week’s Canadian University finals in Montreal, Cameron plans to enjoy and savour the experience, her last tournament as a Thunderbird. “I’ve always wanted to play golf in Montreal and I can’t think of a more poetic way to cap off four great years,” she said. “I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to play golf at UBC throughout my degree, and so thankful for the amazing friendships and memories UBC golf has provided me with.”


O’Rourke new coach of Okanagan Rockets Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Not even halfway through his 20s, Mack O’Rourke has already been coaching hockey for seven seasons. The Kelowna product’s latest step up the coaching ladder has landed him a job in the B.C. Major Midget League. O’Rourke, 24, has been named the new head coach of the Okanagan Rockets, taking over from James Eccles. O’Rourke, who coached the last two seasons at the Okanagan Hockey Academy in Penticton, is excited about his latest coaching opportunity back in his hometown. “You get to work with the highest-calibre players in the minor hockey system, and a lot of these guys are high-end WHL draft picks, so the talent level is very high,” said O’Rourke. “I’m excited about the opportunity here, and the goal is to play for a national championship.” O’Rourke came up as a coach through Kelowna’s minor hockey system and, as an assistant, helped guide the midget AAA Rockets to the B.C. title in 2010. He spent the last two years in Penticton, where last season he was the head coach of the OHA’s midget AAA varsity team. O’Rourke has also been involved in B.C.

Mack O’Rourke Hockey’s High Performance program for the past four years, including working as a head coach at the 2012 U16 B.C. Cup. As for being the youngest head coach ever in the BCMML, O’Rourke looks forward to the challenge of proving he is ready and capable of doing the job. “Every year at every level, I’ve faced that side of it, being younger than most coaches,” O’Rourke, who has worked in the past with coaches like former NHLers Brent Gilchrist, Dixon Ward and Mike Needham. “Some guys might not give me the credibility because of my age, but it doesn’t bother me or worry me too much. I feel like I’m prepared to take this on.” As for his goals as the head man of the Okanagan Rockets, O’Rourke hopes to help build on the program’s recent success. “I want to do my part to make sure the pro-

gram stays strong and to try and win a championship,” he said. “I wasn’t part of those teams the last two years, so it’s possible we’ll have a little bit of a different look. But we want to build on the success the team has had and put together the best team possible going forward.” Team GM David Michaud believes the time is right for O’Rourke to take the next step in his coaching career. “The Rockets and BC Hockey are thrilled to provide this opportunity to Mack O’Rourke,” said Michaud. “Mack is a younger coach that has had tremendous mentorship. His passion and energy about the game, and our program is infectious.” Under James Eccles last season, the Rockets posted a 26-8-6 record, then advanced as far as the league championship where they dropped a thrilling series, two games to one to the Vancouver Northwest Giants. Eccles is currently in the market for another coaching job. “This was not an easy decision to move forward with a new coach,” Michaud added. “I would personally like to thank James for his dedication to our program over the past two season. James is a quality coach and we wish him well in his next assignment. “ O’Rourke will conduct his first training camp as head coach of the Okanagan Rockets beginning Aug. 8 at the Capital News Centre.

Don’t be fooled by new marketing tricks hidden in tobacco campaign

Cheryl Sidenberg


On May 31, 2013, health care organizations around the world bring attention to World No Tobacco Day. This year’s theme is “Ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship”. Tobacco advertising bans aim to counteract the misleading information used in marketing campaigns and also strive to prevent youth from being exposed to the lure of tobacco advertising. Sadly, only six per cent of the world’s populations are protected from exposure to tobacco industry advertising tactics. In Canada, the Tobacco Act aims to protect the health of Canadians by regulating tobacco advertising, restricting access to tobacco products and increasing public awareness of the health hazards of using tobacco products.

The Tobacco Products Labelling Regulations require that tobacco product labels include health warning messages covering 75 per cent of the front and back of the packaging of cigarettes and little cigars. Health information messages such as “never quit trying to quit” are required to be included inside the packaging and a Canadian quit line number must also be provided to link smokers with cessation services in their province. Because most tobacco users begin before the age of 14 it is important to ensure our youth are not exposed to tobacco promotions. The Tobacco Act prohibits tobacco marketing directed at youth but despite this, the tobacco industry remains aggressive in promoting tobacco products to youth in new and clever ways. Flavoured products

and colourful packaging have recently been used to attract youth to tobacco products. Flavoured tobacco comes in almost every imaginable flavour—cherry, strawberry, banana, mint and more. Many youth equate these products to candy, rather than seeing them as harmful and addictive tobacco products. Flavours appeal to kids because they reduce the unpleasant odour and disguise the bad taste of tobacco. Flavoured tobacco products are just as addictive as other non-flavoured products. The tobacco industry is also using flavours in other products such as hookahs and electronic cigarettes to entice children, youth and adults. The global tobacco epidemic kills nearly six million people each year. Over 600,000 people are non-smokers dying from exposure to second

hand smoke. It is projected tobacco will kill more than eight million people every year by the year 2030. Over 80 per cent of these deaths are preventable. Tobacco advertising bans can play an important role in preventing people from starting to use tobacco and subsequently reducing others from being exposed to second hand smoke. Let’s support and drive national efforts to protect future generations so they can live, work and play in a smoke free world. For more information on tobacco advertising bans and World No Tobacco Day visit www. For more information on flavoured tobacco see Cheryl Sidenberg is a tobacco reduction coordinator with Interior Health.

PM looks to supreme court for direction on senate reform


any of you have been asking for my viewpoint on matters regarding the Senate. As a taxpayer, I share your concerns and frustrations as to recent events involving Senate issues. It is the duty of all elected and appointed officials to conduct ourselves with the utmost integrity and Canadians have a right to expect MPs and senators to respect the rules and guidelines set out for them. I remain vigilant in this respect, as do the majority of parliamentarians.     For those elected and appointed officials who believe they are above the rules, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been clear on this, saying last week: “Anyone, who wants to use public office for their own benefit, should make other plans.” As for the decisions made by the Prime Min-


Ron Cannan ister’s now former chief of staff Nigel Wright, the matter has been referred to the Ethics Commissioner. Senate reform remains important to Canadians.  That is why our government put senate reform on the national agenda and colleagues from the Senate have agreed to support our efforts to achieve fundamental reform.  In an effort to move senate reform forward, the government has asked the Supreme Court of Canada to comment on whether the reforms we have proposed can be ac-

complished through Parliament alone. Those reforms include term limits for senators, democratic selection of senate nominees, and net worth and property qualifications for senators. The government has also asked the court to rule on options for abolishing the Senate completely.   While we await the response to those questions from the Supreme Court, the government has also committed to taking further steps in the area of senate expenditure and accountability, to accelerate changes to the Senate’s rules on expenses, and close any loopholes in those existing rules. Meantime, the government will continue to remain focused on the economy and passing the budget bill before the House of Commons rises for the summer. Canada remains the

best economy in the G7, and as Economic Action Plan 2013 showed, we are well on our way to balancing the federal budget by 2015. Back here at home, a positive working relationship between the mayors and their councils from Kelowna and Lake Country, our three MLAs and myself has resulted in significant funding for vari-

I look forward to continuing to work with our three MLAs—Norm Letnick, Steve Thomson and Ben Stewart—who successfully retained their seats in the recent provincial election. The provincial election results, which flew in the face of the pundits’

Kelowna photographer continues campaign to aid KGH neonatal services What if helping out sick kids at Kelowna General Hospital were as easy as smiling for a camera? It can be by participating in a fundraiser spearheaded by Kelowna photographer Elizabeth Soergel and Aviva Studios. Soergel is currently working on her third edition of Children of the Okanagan. To date she has raised over $37,000 with this project and is looking forward to raising more money for the children’s ward at KGH through the “Have a Heart” radiothon. Each page in this beautiful book features a different child, photographed by Soergel in an outdoor location in the Okanagan between now and August.

“I’m really excited to be working on this project again,” said Soergel. “It’s a creative way I can contribute to the neo natal ward. Project donors will see beautiful pictures of their children included in the book and the KGH Foundation will receive donations for each participant now, as well as revenue from the sale of the book later in the year.” Soergel’s inspiration for the project came after the birth of her daughter Lauren. When Lauren was born, she inhaled amniotic fluid which makes breathing extremely difficult for newborns. It can result in death if not treated immediately. Soergel and her family were grateful to the doc-

tors and nurses that saved Lauren’s life and want to make sure other families receive excellent care in the Okanagan. “The Kelowna General Hospital Foundation is extremely grateful to Elizabeth for her support of neonatal services,” said foundation chair Karen Borring-Olsen. “Her unique talent allows us to see something special about each of the children in the book. “It is a great reminder of the importance of having world class health care for our children when they need it.” Soergel’s book has room for up to 200 children and each photo session will focus on the child’s individual personality.

Soergel is waiving the normal sitting fee and asking parents to make a $100 donation to the KGH foundation for each child that is to appear in the book. All funds raised go towards children’s care at KGH. Completed books will be available for sale in early December, in time for the holidays. Partial of the proceeds of book sales are also being donated to the KGH Foundation. For more information or to participate in the project by booking your child’s spot in the book, contact Liz Soergel at 250-317-4395 or via her website

Cause of painful swelling of foot nerve still a mystery M orton’s neuroma, also called metatarsalgia, is a painful swelling of one of the nerves leading to the toes, causing pain in the ball of the foot. It most commonly occurs between the third and fourth toes. Morton’s neuroma may cause the feeling of a pebble in your shoe. Other symptoms may be a sharp, burning pain in the ball of the foot and tingling, numbness, stinging or burning in the toes. Doctors don’t understand exactly what causes Morton’s neuroma. The condition is believed to be a response to irritation, injury or pressure to one of the nerves that lead to the toes. The body responds to the injury or irritation with the growth of thick-


James Kaufman ened nerve tissue (neuroma). Factors that contribute to Morton’s neuroma include high-impact sports, foot deformities, and choice of footwear, especially high heels or tight shoes (that might be required in certain sports) that put pressure on the toes. Morton’s neuroma may be relieved or resolved by changing footwear or using arch supports or foot pads to help reduce pressure on the nerve and modifying or

taking a break from activities that cause stress to the foot. Physiotherapy may also be recommended. In more severe cases, corticosteroid injections or surgery may be recommended by your doctor. Morton’s neuroma does not always resolve on its own and this is where acupuncture comes in. Acupuncture can be of great help because of the way in which it assists the body in its healing processes. By reducing inflammation and increasing circulation to the foot as well as influencing the body’s healing mechanisms, acupuncture helps to shorten recovery time and encourages a more complete recovery. In Chinese medicine

(TCM), pain is seen as a blockage of the body’s circulation of qi-energy and blood, which effectively starves the area of necessary nutrients. When we continue to put our regular demands on the foot and it is unable to properly perform its functions, it becomes vulnerable to pain and injury. Acupuncture helps to remove the blockages so that qi-energy and blood can flow properly again, thus strengthening the area and promoting healthier functioning. Sometimes there are underlying imbalances or contributing lifestyle factors which may also come into play with pain conditions. Usually the location of the pain will point towards these factors and the meridians affected.

In the case of Morton’s neuroma, the foot has all of the meridians passing through it so an imbalance with any of these meridians, but especially the stomach meridian, may also contribute to weakness to this area of the foot. What would cause a meridian imbalance? Well, these can be factors such as our genetics and our lifestyle, whether it be our occupation, the exercise or sports we choose, our response to stress, how much sleep we get, our emotions, or our nutrition and diet. Over time, our habits and patterns can lead to corresponding patterns of imbalance within our bodies, which is why many of our health symptoms start to appear in middle age.

‘Stuff the Bus’ raises donations for women’s shelter Kelowna Baptist Housing will stage a Stuff the Bus fundraiser Wednesday, May 29, in support of the Kelowna Women’s Shelter. Residents, staff and family members will be

packing the bus with donations for the shelter. The bus will be at: • Village at Smith Creek, 2425 Orlin Rd, Westbank, 9 a.m,

• Sun Pointe Village, 700 Rutland Rd North, 11 a.m., • Village at Mill Creek, 1450 Sutherland Ave., 1 p.m.

By also addressing these underlying factors, we can further strengthen the foot and improve overall health, with the goal of preventing future reoccurrence. In practice, I have seen acupuncture yield great results for Morton’s neuroma. This condition can be particularly challenging for people to overcome, simply because we require our feet for so

much of what we do in daily life. However, acupuncture can usually give results fairly quickly, and with continued treatments can help to resolve the condition, eventually allowing many people to return to their former activities. James Kaufman is a registered acupuncturist at Okanagan Acupuncture Centre, 1625 Ellis St, downtown Kelowna.

Kidney disease strikes families, not only individuals. THE KIDNEY FOUNDATION OF CANADA

VESTRE, EVAN RAYMOND 1932 ~ 2013 Evan Raymond Vestre passed away on May 22, 2013 at the age of 80 years. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Darlene, his children Linda (& Terry) Brecht, Michael (& Teresa) Vestre, his grandchildren Dyllan, Kayla, Michelle, Jeremy & Steven, as well as his great-grandson Liam, all of Kelowna. Evan was born the youngest of eight children into a Saskatchewan farming family. When he was old enough to help, he worked the land with the rest of the family, until he married Darlene in 1959 and branched out on his own. He and his brother David moved their families to BC in 1964 and attempted to continue the farming lifestyle, but when that proved unsuccessful they moved on to other ventures. He spent many years as a heavy-duty equipment operator and mechanic, but farming was in his blood so when he had the opportunity to return to it (albeit on a much smaller scale) he took it, owning and operating a thriving worm farm until his retirement. Country music, camping, hunting and fishing topped the list of his favorite things, though he will likely be most remembered for the way he was always willing and available to lend a helping hand to family, friends and neighbors whenever the need arose. His bright smile and the twinkle in his eye will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him. As part of his final wishes, Evan declined having a funeral organized, so his immediate family will instead be hosting a Celebration Of Life open house at the family home. All who would like to share their memories are welcome to attend this informal gathering between noon and 3 pm, Saturday, June 1, 2013.

Sadly predeceased by his wife Elizabeth (Beth) and his daughter Lynn Dyck. We give thanks for the time we all had with him and will miss him greatly. He was always a regular at any of our sporting events and could always be heard giving us encouragement and advice. He had passion for his business in construction, where he built many houses and subdivisions in the community of Rutland. He loved walking, covering miles every day, loved playing golf and loved taking long drives to see all the houses he had built and all the new developments in town. Dad took great pride in all that he did and we are glad he is at peace now. We will never forget his enduring love and support in all we did. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at 10:00 am at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. Interment to follow in St. Theresa’s Cemetery.

Sepia Films ramps up two new TV movies for local production The anticipation of the coming summer just got a little brighter for Okanagan film commissioner Jon Summerland. Summerland announced last week that Sepia Films will return to the Okanagan this summer to shoot two new TV movies. A Sisters Nightmare started a month-long production shoot here on Monday, filming to be done predominantly in West Kelowna and Summerland, with some location shoots in Kelowna and Vernon. The film will feature Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl, Scream 3) and Natasha Henstridge (The Secret Circle, CSI Miami), in the leading roles. Also in the cast are Peyton List (Jessie, Diary of A Wimpy Kid franchise) and Matthew Settle (Gossip Girl, Band of Brothers). A Sisters Nightmare will be directed by celebrated Canadian feature filmmaker Vic Sarin. His film resume includes Partition, A Shine of Rainbows, Cold Comfort, Margaret’s Museum and Bye Bye Blues. Sepia Films is a Vancouver-based productionprint company Made for families:

Never leave pets unattended in your vehicle in warm weather The temperature in a parked car, even in the shade with partly open windows, can rapidly reach a level high enough to seriously harm or even kill your pet.



Tumbler is looking for a long-term companion. She loves people, interacts well with them...and well she rolls over & over, hence her name. She gets along well with other cats, but tends to think of herself as a ‘special kitty’. Tumbler loves to run, climb, jump and play with everything. If you have an interactive, yet calm lifestyle, please come down and ask the staff for a meet and greet. She is worth it!!

Dogs cool themselves by panting and by releasing heat through their paws. The hot air and upholstery in vehicles prevents dogs from cooling themselves.

Please leave pets at home If you see a dog in a car on a warm or humid day who you believe may be in trouble, ask stores to page customers. If the dog is in distress call your local SPCA, animal control or police immediately. More information at © 2012 BC SPCA








Dozer is an active, energetic boy who loves to go on long hikes, camping and swims in the lake. He is a big cuddler and loves to be around people.

Dash is a good looking dog who would love to find his forever home. His background is unknown to us but we have observed him to be a friendly boy, who hasn’t had much exposure to other dogs. If you currently have a dog it is imperative that you bring them and your entire family with you when meeting Dash. He is excellent on leash, very easy to walk and would make a perfect companion in the right household.




Flash came in with Dash, so again no background or history on him. He is friendly and very very strong. Our dog walkers say he is excellent on leash, but was a bit excitable on the trail when encountering a horse. He loves to romp in the yard, enjoys the company of anyone who comes to visit and would love to be a permanent member of your family. Ask our staff for a one-on-one meeting with him.



Rocky came in as a stray and is now ready for his new loving home. He has quickly become a fav of our dog walkers and even though his is deaf it will not deter him from becoming an excellent addition to your family. He walks well on harness, loves people and long walks. If you are considering adopting him, please do your research on communicating with deaf canines. He responds to some hand signals so has had some training in his past. Come & meet him, you will be in awe.

Adopt a Pet and take

Thane was brought to the shelter hoping to find his forever home. His background is unknown, his original home must not have been good, as he shy, but is coming out of his shell and showing a new level of confidence. He would be a wonderful cat for a small quiet family who likes a calm, snuggly lapcat. I enjoy the company of other felines and affection from anybody (especially chin scratches). Please ask the staff for an introduction.



Hello there! My name is Gemma and I am eagerly waiting you to take me into your loving home! I am a very inquisitive cat who likes to explore everything and thinks the world is my oyster. If you have an active lifestyle then please consider me! I would do great in a home where I am the only pet as I tend to like my humans all to myself. I love cap nip, bouncy toys and looking out the window. Please ask Staff for an introduction and we will meet soon!

Put a spoonful on each crepe and roll up and place in a shallow baking dish. Pre-heat oven to 375 F. For the meat sauce, chop the onion, grate the carrot and mince the garlic and herbs. Heat a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat in a medium-sized frypan and soften the chopped onions.
