City remains positive AUTUMN MacDONALD Observer Reporter After provincial media made “negative� remarks regarding the status of the West Quesnel Land Stability Program, the city is remaining positive. “We had a great turn out for the West Quesnel Land Stability meeting and I believe, with the very preliminary results on the de-watering, it looks positive as we move forward with the balance of the project,� mayor Mary Sjostrom said. “As a city we were  disappointed in the  Provincial   media coverage that was alarming to our residents. We have been open and transparent in this process and have involved our property owners in every step of the way and will continue to do so as we move forward.� More than 70 Quesnel residents attended the open house last week to learn more about the stability program. City staff and engineering consultants were on hand to speak with residents as well as provide an overview of the program’s progress. “Engineering studies have indicated that removing groundwa-

ter from the area will stabilize the land to a manageable level,� the city stated. The 2012 full-scale dewatering program was a $4.731 million project designed to help reduce land movement in the West Quesnel Land Stability study area. 
A review of the 2012 works was presented, which included geotechnical, civil and environmental works. The geotechnical and civil works included 13 productive pumping wells, 13 monitoring wells, 10 horizontal drain sites consisting of approximately 64 drains, major storm drainage work on Hawk and Stork Avenues and the installation of connection piping on all pumping wells and horizontal drains to carry the water from these wells off site. Environmental work consisted of monitoring the ponds in the area for water levels and quality, vegetation, amphibians and birds.
The monitoring system takes into account surface movement, groundwater levels, flow data from the horizontal drains and pumping wells, and precipitation data. “The completion of this phase and the continuous monitor-

ing of the area would not be possible without our federal and provincial partners and for their financial support and commitment to the project we are grateful,� Sjostrom said. “The West Quesnel Land Stability issue is and will continue to be a top priority of council, “From a preliminary perspective, these first monitoring results are an indication that our previous trial programs were

 “I strongly support the efforts of City staff and engineers for their geotechnical and civil works and commend them for their environmental leadership throughout this process,� Coun. Mike

Cave added. “I too feel confident of the work we are doing and look forward to the next steps.�
Ongoing monitoring in the key areas will continue for the next 12 to 14 months and will include all new and existing installations as well as 134 automated instruments generating data by the minute and 47 quarterly GPS readings.

what effects the fullscale dewatering program has had.
More than $3.154 million was provided by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia, through the Building Canada Fund-Communities Component program, part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan for this project. The City of Quesnel also contributed more than $1.557 million to pay for the full-scale dewater-

ing program. In addition to federal and provincial contributions, the City of Quesnel has invested more than $2.1 million on the West Quesnel Land Stability Program since 2000. The city said next steps include interpreting the data, further design work, addressing deficiencies and lobbying senior levels of government for continued financial partnership.

The City of Quesnel has received its first microbrewery application. The proposed microbrewery is planned to be at 185 Davie St. As the city has never had an application for a microbrewery, there are no bylaws or zoning restrictions. Due to this, city planner Tanya Turner has recommended a spot zone for the lot. Several factors were considered during the city’s research into the possible implications of microbreweries and its potential impact. These were compiled into a report by Turner which was presented at Monday’s meeting. These factors include garbage outflow, water and wastewater usage, aroma and odour, storage, traffic, as well as gas and hazards. Concerning the garbage outflow, the proponents have indicated solid waste from the microbrewery would be composed of residual malt and hop materials and unused yeast. “The spent grains and hops can be collected and given

Two BCUOMA Ambassadors cruised through Quesnel to promote and educate the public and businesses on the hazards of used oil, antifreeze and tires. Contributed photo

BCUOMA Ambassadors touring B.C. British Columbia has one of the best oil recovery rates in Canada at 80 per cent, however, every year more than 17 million litres of used oil goes unaccounted for. As part of their campaign to promote public awareness and encourage responsible recycling, the BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA), a non-profit organization, has launched their eighth annual province-

wide Summer ambassadors Tour. This year, Tire Stewardship British Columbia [TSBC] has partnered with BCUOMA in an effort to increase awareness of not just oil and antifreeze, but also tire scraps. This past week a team of Ambassadors spent Tuesday and Wednesday visiting facilities across Quesnel, communicating the important

message “Every drop. Every tread. Every day.” As part of the ambassadors’ efforts, the team is dedicated to educating the public on the hazards of used oil, antifreeze and tires ending up in landfills, as well as the benefits of recycling and reusing them. The Ambassadors’ tour can be tracked on their blog www. or they can be followed on Twitter at @bcusedoil.

Either way Ford loses

Friday, May 31, 2013 Quesnel Cariboo Observer


wouldn’t want to be Rob Ford these days. The mayor of Canada’s largest metropolitan area, the Greater Toronto district, has been under attack for some time now for something he adamantly denies – smoking crack cocaine, which has supposedly been captured on a cell phone video, although that hasn’t been verified. Now as a I see it, a couple of scenerios could be at play with this national news story. The first would be the man is guilty. If that’s so, he can only deny for so long before either the famous video or corroborating evidence will surface and he will have to not only backtrack on all his denials but also leave the mayor’s office in abject disgrace. The second possibility is there is a powerful movement afoot to oust this controversial public figure and they will stop at nothing, not even the truth or the lie, to achieve their ends. It’s only a matter of time before either one of these choices will see Ford no longer the mayor of Toronto. His handling of this affair has been less than stellar. With his blustery and dare I say cocky attitude, he hasn’t endeared the public, especially those who aren’t familiar with the man outside the scandal, to his cause. He seems a man determined to hang on to this plum political position regardless of the really bad optics. I can’t see an upside to this drama. Either way, Ford loses and I think his chances of hanging on to the mayor’s chair are slim to none. And he should have gracefully bowed out, recognized this wasn’t going to end well and will, more than likely, kill any kind of political future he may have aspired to. Going into politics is a crap shoot at best. With modern investigative technology, your past doesn’t stay in the past very long. Annie Gallant, Observer

Would you like a rainbow with that?


few years ago I saw a video featuring a woman and her daughter preparing fresh fruits and vegetables while demonstrating their Today I Ate a Rainbow charts. I immediately took notice because they were promoting health and nutrition to children in a fun, creative way and I knew my kids – like most – would respond to their strategy. Fast forward to last week and it’s not just children responding to Kia and Hannah Robertson from Kelowna, BC, but media from all over the world. It wasn’t their Rainbow business that got them noticed though, it was the speech nine-year old Hannah delivered in person to Don Thompson, CEO of McDonalds at their AGM in Chicago. She told Don that she didn’t think it was fair when “big companies try to trick kids into eating foods that aren’t good for them by using toys and cartoon characters,” and asked “Don’t you want kids to be healthy so they can live a long and happy life?” Their three-and-ahalf minute exchange is available on YouTube and I’d recommend viewing

Lori Welbourne

On A Brighter Note it if you haven’t heard already. Not because you’re guaranteed to agree, but because it’s not every day someone that young bravely takes on the CEO of the most powerful and influential fast food restaurant chain in the world. Like many parents of today, Kia taught her daughter that kids have a say and that their opinions matter. The “children are better left seen and not heard” way of thinking has thankfully passed. “We helped her write the letter,” Kia said. “But Hannah is passionate about health and nutrition for kids and she meant every word she said.” Reaction to her confrontation brought on a media frenzy and attention from people all over the globe and it’s been an unexpected surprise to the duo, as well as to the

I love what Hannah said and I love that she’s getting so much attention for it, even if the sheer magnitude of it has been lost on her. “She wasn’t fazed when she was on Good Morning America,” Kia said. “But when the Daily Courier came by to interview her, she thought ‘wow!’ because she was going to be in the local newspaper.” Excited to continue with her “Today I Ate a Rainbow” business and the additional interest it’s recieved after four years of slogging away, Kia holds out hope that McDonald’s will stop marketing directly to children and will continue to add healthy choices to their menu. But she also knows that ultimately it’s up to the consumer to make their own decisions. If McDonald’s adds healthy items to their menu and we don’t buy them, they’re not going to continue. To watch Kia and Hannah’s fun videos, order a chart or see what they’re all about visit Lori Welbourne is a syndicated columnist. She can be contacted at

But not everyone has been kind.   “Online reaction has been about 60/40 in support,” Kia said. “And some of that 40 per cent has been downright vicious.” Having to grow a thick skin in a hurry, she said people can say whatever they want about her and her parenting, but her daughter’s off limits. “We’re not telling people not to eat at McDonald’s,” she said. “We just wanted to plant the seed in the minds of the CEO and shareholders that marketing junk food directly to children through cartoons and toys is irresponsible and encourages kids to pester their parents for something they might not realize isn’t good for them.” Of course some people agree with Don Thompson and point to their apple slices, fat free milk, salads and McNugget happy meals as being healthy. And some even argue that the burgers and fries aren’t bad either. But my teenage employment and subsequent 85-pound weight gain while working there tells me otherwise.

children and each year, it was always a new adventure. For Cathy Walsh to suggest that it is “almost ho-hum” is extremely negative and offensive, especially now, during our

tourist season. The great day she ended up having in Barkerville could have been expressed without the comment that “little seems to change from year to year.” Her letter would

have been much more refreshing if she simply shared her fantastic day in Barkerville. Having hosted many international students and teachers through our school district

program, we always include Barkerville in our activities, but not because there is no place to take out-of-town visitors. Perhaps Cathy should take a look at her fellow Rotarian Ron Paull’s

Local Freemasons who chose the political arena


n light of the recent provincial election, it seemed fitting to remember some local B.C. politicians who were also Past Masters of Quesnel Lodge No. 69. John Anderson Fraser was elected as MLA of the Cariboo district the same year he became a Freemason in 1912. Born in Shakespeare, Ontario in 1866, Fraser believed his success came from his attitude to “take whatever job is offered” and to “not be choosy.” True to his word, he held many jobs including lumber piler, longshoreman, teacher, manager, school trustee and merchant. In 1925 he was elected Member of Parliament for the Cariboo and was instrumental in obtaining government funding for the Quesnel Hospital. He kept that seat until 1935. In 1960 he was raised to the Grand Lodge above at the age of 94. Another local B.C. politician was Louis Adelbert LeBourdais, who joined Quesnel Lodge in 1923. Affectionately known as 100 Years - 1913 to 2013 “Louis of the Cariboo,” LeBourdais was born in Clinton, B.C. in 1888 and came to Quesnel in 1914 as agent for Yukon Telegraph. He was well known for his tales of the colourful characters of his beloved Cariboo. He later served the Cariboo District as MLA for 12 years until his death in 1947. LeBoudais Park is named in his honour. Last but not least, Rupert Williams Hagegivers, front line workers and family gen was raised to the sublime degree in . egivers, front line workers and family 1914. He was born in New Zealand in 1887 but came to Canada as a child. Hag. gen arrived in the Quesnel area about Lhoosk’uz Dené Nation1913 working as a land surveyor.

Research says mentored youth simply do better R

esults from a largescale national research study conducted by Centre for Addiction and Mental Health provide independent and reliable evidence for the impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentors on Canada’s youth. When compared with young people who have never been matched, youth who have been matched with a mentor are two times more likely to: have high levels of school bonding; two times more likely to have high academic achievement; two and a half times more likely to participate in extra-curricular school activities; 48 per cent less likely to have behaviour problems in school; 43 per cent less like have conduct problems in school; and 34 per cent less likely to allow themselves to be victimized or bullied by peers. Mentored youth simply do better. The Community and the Teen In-School Mentoring programs will soon be

Quesnel Historical society meets “Pale green was the color decided on for the interior of Quesnel Museum at last Thursday’s meeting of the Quesnel Historical Society, held at the home of Alvin Johnston. A committee of three will take care of decorators and layout displays, Mrs. Ursula Lalonde, curator of the museum, Mrs. Marie Hutchcroft, assistant curator, and Mrs. Kay Rines. President of the local society. Operation of the Museum will be in the hands of volunteers, at least at the beginning, and Les Cook of Barkerville, who is with the Provincial Parks Board, has promised any help he can give. An interesting clipping was read to the group: “ an Order of Cariboo Pioneers, the Cariboo Brotherhood, was established in April, 1913, and branches organized in Stanley, Quesnel, Ashcroft, Lytton, New Westminster, and Vancouver. The insignia of the association was a miniature gold pan.” None of the old-timers present could remember anything about this organization formed 50 years ago.” This Column is to highlight our 50th Anniversary

Contributed photo

Danielle Robert awarded $1,000 scholarship The Winner of this year’s $1,000 Power Pioneers Community Achievement award was Danielle Robert, a student from Correlieu High School. She has demonstrated giving back to her community through her involvement in Scouts, Air Cadets, Rotary and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Quesnel. Her local contribution started out with Girl Guides of Canada and continued when she transferred into the Baden Powell Scouts in our area. Her community involvement included event volunteering and fundraising, community clean up and she also branched out to an international initiative to send scout uniforms to groups on the Ivory Coast of Africa. Through these experiences she learned valuable team building and leadership skills that Danielle went on to use as a scout leader in France, guiding the growth of a group of youths ages 11 – 14. She then went on to mentor a Grade 7 student in Big  Brothers and Big Sisters in Quesnel. Danielle joined the Royal Canadian Air Cadets Program and had the same successes as in her previous endeavours. She was a Rotary exchange student in France and while on this exchange she tutored  other students in English. She has now taken on the role as a mentor for outbound students and has become involved with Rotex, a branch of past exchange students  who organize events for the newcomers and act as guides for these youth from other parts of the world. Danielle will be off to Simon Fraser University next fall. She was a very well deserving recipient of this year’s award. – submitted by Rae Daggitt

Marion Gordon sees gardening as good for the soul


or Marion Gordon, 2007 Quesnel Volunteer Citizen of the Year, irises and raspberries, herbs and sunflowers, potatoes and scarlet runner beans all just flow together in her bountiful combination garden. She loves working in all that beauty and has never found it too much effort. “It’s good for the soul,” she said. The soil in her Red Bluff garden looks rich and dark, but Marion says it’s actually heavy clay and takes a long time to dry out in the spring. But, she does have full sun and the plants flourish. She lays out her rows in a variety of configurations to create a more interesting display. When she and her husband Gerald began gardening there more than 20 years ago, they knew they needed to amend the soil, so they hauled 40-year- old, black sawdust from an abandoned mill site near Alexandria. Over the years they added in their own compost, leaves and grass clippings. She collects the coffee grounds from the Seniors’ Centre and egg shells from

Marion Gordon looks forward to another productive and enjoyable year of gardening. all their pancake breakfasts. Those are crushed and placed around the base of the tomato plants to add calcium. She cuts up banana peels and soaks them to extract the potassium and adds that to her watering can. No artificial fertilizers are needed here. She has few pests, but did wage a relentless war against slugs last year. Every evening at 8 p.m. she walked her garden rows for an hour with a bucket of salt and water and collected

any beasties she could find. It took a while to get past the ‘yuck’ factor of handling them, but she forced herself as she hated them so badly. Her famous raspberries, more than 120 feet of them, produce more than enough for her children and grandchildren, as well as 25 ice cream buckets to sell to faithful

customers who return year after year. One year, when her granddaughter Brandy was getting married, Grandma made 165, four-ounce jars of jam to present to the wedding guests. The raspberries are the first job in the spring and they get tilled and pruned after any winter killed canes have been

removed. She keeps them low enough that she and Gerald can easily pick them. In the fall she throws

compost on their base. She’s never had a green house, so plants directly into the garden for most things. A few things like broccoli, cabbage and sweet peas get started in a small kids’ bath tub that she hauls out into the sun in the morning and back inside for protection at night. She’s in no rush to plant early due to her clay soil, but potatoes are in by the end of April as they can tolerate a slight frost. She saves many of her own seeds and is using potatoes that originated in her father’s garden in Alberta; he has been dead for 13 years. She waters by hand and only what needs to be done. No large rotating sprinkler or irrigation system here. Marion has a variety of fruit trees: two

apples, a sour cherry and a crabapple, all of which end up in her 23 cu.ft. freezer. They rest alongside rhubarb, blackberries, elderberries, all colours of currants and strawberries. No wonder she won a prize for “A Large Vegetable/Flower Garden” with Communities in Bloom. They have a pump house that can be heated during severe cold spells and here she stores her gunny sacks of potatoes, carrots and onions. By the end of the season the freezer will be full and the shelves lined with pickles and jams. Marion’s garden will be featured on our Food Garden Tours in late June when her irises are at their peak. Please join us and be inspired. – submitted by Colleen Gatenby

Jonas Gagnon Sports Reporter

Hunting the elusive Sasquatch The sound of the birds gets interrupted every couple of minutes with a loud twang of metal on metal that signals another arrow sacrificed to the Sasquatch. At its feet lay a pile of bent and broken arrows that testify

to the hunger of the sasquatch for its sacrificial victims. Not all targets were hungry for arrows at the Quesnel Rivers Archery Club 3D shoot though. Archers gathered at Gamache’s Arena, walking

the trails through the brush and enjoying the scenery and competition. Archers faced a variety of challenges in the shoot, including shots with drastic elevation changes and bushes encroaching in sightlines.

Strong enough for a man, made for a woman JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter A trio of women from Quesnel made their way to Kelowna to take part in the FEMSPORT challenge, a women only strength challenge. Mack Attack, so named by taking the first letter of each member's names: Amelie Deyaeger, Kelli Cyca and Megan Booth along with a 'C' for coach, took third in the novice category. While the impressive finish added spice to the weekend, being in the competition as team mates and competitors cheered, was a great experience.

"All of us were on a high all day; it was so uplifting," Deyaeger said. The podium finish pushed the experience over the top though. "We had a smile on our faces from the moment we got the medal through the rest of the day. Even driving back we couldn't stop smiling," Deyaeger said. The women hauled, lifted, pushed and dragged their way through a series of five challenges: box jumps, which entails jumping onto an 18 inch high box 50 times over three minutes; the kettlebell lift, which entails carrying five kettlebells (20kg–32kg), one at a time 30ft and putting them on a series of ledges of

varying heights ( from 3ft – 5ft); the tire pull, which is essentially as it sounds – pulling a 120 lb tire 75 feet; the tire flip, which is a type of relay with team members flipping a 260 lb tire five times; and finally the obstacle course, which included carrying 45 lb water jugs, a variety of agility areas and ended with pushing a vehicle. Booth took three podium finishes over the course of the competition, a third in the tire drag and a second in both the obstacle course and the box jumps. "We all did personal bests in the box jump, so we were all very pumped about it," Deyaeger said.

The team faced off against 14 competing teams, plus unaffiliated competitors, from all over western Canada. After putting themselves through the difficult competition, the team, including their coach, is not letting up, with plans to take on the Tough Mudder competition soon. They haven't decided on their plans for further Femsport competitions but for now they're just happy to be done. "One thing we’re very happy about is that we don't ever have to do a box jump again," Deyagaer said. "They're quite horrendous."

Pitch perfect opening to the season The Quesnel Horseshoe Pitchers Club opened up their season, not letting the cool, spring air and occasional May rains dampen their spirits.

Lets play ball JONAS GAGNON Observer Reporter CJ Directory won last weekend’s Icebreaker for the bantam/midget baseball league, taking the final with a solid defense. “It was a very defensive game,” CJ Directory coach and bantam/ midget director Ray Schwmeler said. The tournament featured four teams, CJ Directory, Cariboo Ford, Teal Roofing and Cariboo Pulp, playing in a round robin format, with the best two teams facing off in the final. CJ Directory, Cariboo Ford and Teal Roofing each came out of round robin play with a 2-1 record, forcing the decision to goal differences. Cariboo Ford, at +14, and CJ Directory, at +11, made the finals, leaving Teal Roofing and Cariboo Pulp to fight it out for third and fourth. Teal Roofing beat Cariboo Pulp to claim third. CJ Directory and Cariboo Ford took to the diamond for the final, ending in a 5-1 win for CJ. “It was a nail biter,” Schwemler said. A game like that can turn around on you in one inning.” Schwemler credited the depth of his pitching talent with much of the win. Cariboo Ford had only two hits in the game, with a mistake in the outfield allowing their only run. Schwemler was happy with the weather for the tournament, having had early to call off the

skills competition due to rain. The games only suffered a couple light showers, allowing the tournament to continue as scheduled. Though the weather was not a factor, absences and injuries did have a large impact on the teams, with players playing injured and teams lending opponents players to allow games to take place. “There were lots of injuries,” Schwemler said. “I suspect at the end of the year the results will be different.” The injuries, however, made for some interesting plays, including Marshall Browne batting in a cast, and getting a couple hits on base. “It was quite the highlight,” Schwemler said. Above: one of CJ Directory’s pitchers throws a pitch against Cariboo Ford; below: a Teal Roofing player spins to make a catch.

Soccer weekend update

Life’s been busy for soccer players, as they have been travelling about the province finding teams to test their mettle against. On the May Long Weekend four Quesnel teams, the U13, U15 and U17 girls as well as the U15 boys, went to the Kamloops Youth Soccer Association Slurpee Cup. While the U17 Girls and U15 Boys struggled, the U15 girls and U13 girls both finished third in their groupings, the U15 girls going 2-1-1 and the U13 girls 2-2. Last weekend the U15 Boys, U12 Boys, U15 Girls, U13 Girls and U11 Girls went to Prince George to play Cariboo League games. The U15 boys played two older U16 teams, one from Prince George and the other from Williams Lake. Though they controlled most of the play against Prince George, they we unable to finish and fell 0-3. Against Williams Lake, the older team's experience was difficult to match, with the game finishing in a loss. The U15 girls faced two Williams Lake teams, but had a difficult time finishing as well, with the games ending 2-1 and 4-0 in Williams Lake's favour. The U13 girls came out strong and scored early in their first game against Prince George's U14 girls. Prince George answered late in the first half, bringing the teams even at half time. Quesnel again regained the lead in second half, but Prince George answered and tied the game seconds before full time. The U13 girls second game was a rematch of their first game, facing the U14 Prince George girls again. This ended in a 0-4 loss under difficult weather conditions as a thunderstorm moved in. The U12 boys split their games with a loss against Prince George and a win over Williams Lake. The U11 girls finished similar with a 3-1 loss to Prince George and a 1-1 tie against Williams Lake. Overall the Quesnel teams played well. The U13 girls and U15 girls are busy preparing for their provincial qualifying matches against 100 Mile (to be played on June 9 in Williams Lake). The U15 girls will be in PG playing exhibition games with Prince George and Terrace, while the U13's will be hosting a match with Prince George Sunday at 3:45. The U17 Girls will also be in PG this weekend for exhibition games. -contributed by Gilbert Schotel

Yesteryears The things once done in yesteryears, were full of fun and sometimes tears. Remembering things we did for fun, like playing football in the sun. Skipping school just for a lark, then hanging out, down at the park. Our Junior school, named Cariboo, the corner store and Teddy’s too. Spending weekends with our friends, and thinking friendship never ends. We found that cars and booze don’t mix, the year of Nineteen Seventy Six. That year we lost some of the best, like Rocky, Vicki and all the rest. Still left behind were those who cared, a heartfelt sadness we all shared. Yet even though our friends were gone, the rest of us found that life went on. We children now, are fully grown and most have children of our own. We sometimes think of Yesterday, as time moves past us more each day. Yet, even though these times are past, our memories ... will always last. Monte Alto©


Fresh from school they married young While pregnant with their future son By twenty-two their world would change The children’s ward would know their names ~ Diagnosed at three years old Devastated when they were told Nine floors up their lives froze still Among the clouds, among the ill ~ Innocent paintings clothed the walls Bedtime stories filled the hall From that day on the years took shape A hospital bed would be their fate ~ No chance to enjoy their brand new home Prescribed and put on prednisone Gravity-fed from thereon in Their lifelong fight would then begin ~ Between their treatments the children played As if no sorrow had come their way Though at times it seemed no hope survived Especially when someone’s child died ~ Many were taken against their will Nine floors up where time stands still But my brother was one who would get well And his battle is now a story to tell ~ Matt Merna

The Puzzle of My Home City of Quesnel The longer I stay in this beautiful Home City of Quesnel, the more pieces of the puzzle I can connect and dwell. My first sighting of this decorative city was when trees lined the streets, and I captured the time when Billy Barker Days did our meets. The comments that are awarded to the citizens who take such good care of my wonderful community, furthers the gratefulness that I have for God who blessed me with such a marvellous city. The mills announce their being with their tails of smoke in the air, which marks a sure sign of growth and blooming profits to bear. I will conclude with a means of pride and glory for my city, for the years that I have lived in Quesnel are like pieces of a puzzle that mark no pity. Debbie G. Rosenau
