The City of Cranbrook and BC Hydro came together on Saturday, May 4 to celebrate Arbor Day at Kinsmen Park. Over twenty trees were planted by volunteers from the City, BC Hydro and the public on Saturday morning. It was a great day – enjoyed by volunteers big and small. Even the four legged ones helped out!

The Justice Theatre is presenting free one hour performances in Cranbrook at the Cranbrook Public Library, in the atrium, at 6 pm Monday May 13th and in Kimberley at Centre 64 at 10:30 am Tuesday May 14th. This is courtesy of the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy as part of their Welcoming Communities initiative. It is a creative way of introducing immigrants and the general public to the way our system of law works. CBAL has recently opened an immigrant welcome centre at the Kimberley Public

Library and in July will open a similar office in Cranbrook. This is made possible through funding from the Federal Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia. Justice Theatre is a presentation of the Peoples Law School of Vancouver. The performance will connect Canada’s justice system to the lives of audience members by making its principles more understandable and by demonstrating that the law is there to help people who are victims of crime.

Cadets Celebrate 70 Years in Kimberley The Kimberley Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron celebrate their 70th Annual Review with their community and proud parents BY K ait y Brown Bulletin/Townsman intern

Cadets of all ranks had their 70th Annual Review, a major achievement for the group.

Kimberley’s Air Cadet Squadron celebrated their 70th Annual Review at the Curling Rink by the Civic Center, Saturday, May 4. The event featured reviewing officers and commanders conducting a formal inspection of the cadets in uniform.

From Page 1 Property tax revenue is 37 per cent of the total, and the main source of the City’s revenue. Of that revenue, 85.95 per cent comes from Residential Class 1. Business accounts for 13 per cent and light industrial only .11 per cent. Chair of the Finance Committee Jack Ratcliffe says that it is the goal of the City to see the Light Industrial revenue increase. The Light Industrial millrate was reduced in 2006 in an effort to diversify the tax base. In 2012, it was changed again to a one to one ratio with residential taxes. Business taxes are now at a 2:38 to 1 ratio. In a statement (Schedule B to the Financial Plan Bylaw) Council says that it is agreed the business properties consume more services than res-

idential and should be subject to higher taxation. However, in the past ten years the City has made an effort to reduce that ratio to a more manageable rate. There is no change to the residential flat tax or Aquatic Centre parcel tax in 2013, nor an increase in utility bills. But water and sewer will be going up $1.20 per quarter in 2014. The City will also be conducting a department by department service review to provide a clearer picture of what services it provides and the costs associated. The focus will not be on cutting services, but on identifying possible efficiencies. In addition, a ten year infrastructure plan will be completed in 2013, identifying and prioritizing infrastructure projects for the next 10 years.

provide more parking, better traffic flow


In addition to adjustment to the parking bylaw and the addition of the former Canadian Hotel land as a parking lot, Kimberley City Council is also considering another

move to improve traffic flow in, out and around the Platzl. That move would be to make Howard Street on the north end of the Platzl a one way, which would then allow for angle parking. Mayor Ron McRae says Council and staff are looking at it. The one way would likely be west to east, he said. “It’s all in the interest of better traffic flow,” McRae said. If the one way is created, it would lead to a change in an

intersection that is somewhat problematic — that being where Howard St. meets the upper part of Wallinger Ave. If that intersection changes, it would allow an additional exit from the parking lot beside the youth centre, something that would improve congestion in that lot. As promised, Council did give first three readings to rescind the Surface Parking Specified Area Bylaw on Monday evening, which charged property owners

within the area a total of $26,763 per year for parking in the downtown area. Coun. Albert Hoglund was not in favour of rescinding the bylaw, saying the parking is there for businesses, and they should pay for part of it. However, Coun. Don McCormick said that there were clearly issues with the bylaw, and the message the City was trying to project was that they are friendly to business.

Gravelle pleads not guilty

Man charged over Cranbrook shooting incident still in custody Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

The man accused of shooting into an apart-

ment in Cranbrook in February has pleaded not guilty. Victor Russell Gravelle has been charged with two counts of unlawfully discharging a firearm in connection with a February 24 incident. According to RCMP, in the early hours of that day, a 47-year-old Cran-

brook man allegedly shot into a third-floor apartment on King Street. A police dog and handler tracked the man, who was hiding nearby, and found the weapon close to the apartment, RCMP said. Cpl. Chris Newel said the three occupants of the apartment, who knew the alleged shoot-

er, were uninjured, although bullets narrowly missed one person. In April, Gravelle was granted bail on a $10,000 recognizance, but he is still in custody at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre while organizing the deposit. In Cranbrook Provincial Court on Monday, May 6, Gravelle ap-

peared via video link from Kamloops. His defence counsel, Rick Strahl, told Judge Grant Sheard that Gravelle pleads not guilty to both charges and has chosen a trial by provincial court judge. The trial is expected to take five days. A date is likely to be set for the trial on June 17.

Air Cadets annual review From Page 3 The 70th year is a significant achievement for the cadets, proving that the program is still going strong. And even 70 years later, after the parent involvement that sparked the Air Cadets in the first place, parent participation still a core part of the cadets today – an initiative for “the betterment and protection of our children” as described by Van Moll. The cadets have the opportunity to learn a number of very interesting skills and talents which some showcased after the review such as riffle safety and other important protocols. One LAC, Leading Air Cadet Chorney, built a model airport which he said was inspired by the Cranbrook airport, but of his own design, which

A vote for Warland is a vote for … “After all is said and done, more is said than done.” Anonymous “A little inaccuracy sometimes saves tons of explanations.” H.H. Munro


ver the years several demented people, folk who keep popping out at me like demented cuckoo clocks — especially my next-door neighbour — have hinted that I should be running for office. They think I’d be a good politician. As a matter of fact, I did once during my less-than-illustrious career idly fancy becoming a politician; it looked a lot easier than working, but fortunately for all concerned, I shied away. I haven’t owned a suit since my wedding sixty-plus years ago and I jettisoned all of my ties when a certain school principal ordered me to wear one in class. Having been a school teacher, I could have been a great dictator like Mussolini, John A. Macdonald, and the present Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, but I found out that I’d have to sit in meetings (in the Caucasus) and listen to the ravings of other idiots. That would have gone against the grain. I’m not good at meetings and have successfully slept through those I was forced to attend.

I’ve been around for aeons and therefore accumulated a vast wealth of experience but, in the meantime, forgotten what it was. I therefore don’t have much to offer. And the folk that pester me around election time don’t have a clue as to what goes on after an election. I shall never forget the retired politician who told me that, when she was elected to office, she found it impossible to do any of the things that her party had instructed her to promise to the electors because the bureaucracy told her to forget all that nonsense, and so she sat around in creative inertia. One of the many things Peter that rattle my chain is the Warland way that governments waste (mismanage) my money. Take those tin-can fast ferries and those proposed new arctic patrol ships that Norwegians could build for far less money — probably out of sardine cans. But there, I mustn’t get into the critical stage. How do you criticize a circus full of clowns? My Uncle Charlie once took me and my sister to see a circus. It was quite a show but Charlie couldn’t help chortling over the actions of the clown. “The wa’er come right outer ‘is head,” he told my mother several times and now, when I watch politicians in action, I think of that clown, but he wasn’t pretending to be serious. As A.H.Glasgow once wrote, ‘Any idea


not coupled with action will never get bigger than the brain cell it once occupied.’ So, when I have those e-mails all year from perfectly pleasant people whose biases that sound as if they’d been written by Adolf Hitler himself at his maddest moments, I don’t get perturbed too much. They’re so right wing they’re off the charts and they therefore must have very small brain cells. Then there are those who want politicians to do the ‘right’ thing by everybody but, as every wife and mother knows, ‘It ain’t gonna happen’. Maybe, just maybe, we could persuade some of these foreign workers to run for office. They’d probably be good at it. I can’t organize the chaos of my own life. No, what we need is an all-knowing force to run the province and the country. Google comes to mind so don’t bug me any more, please. You see, I’m a cantankerous curmudgeon and what really worries me is that I might begin to show an interest in politics and maybe even run for office. And what if the great unwashed decided, just for a laugh, to vote for me and I found myself in office instead of the loony bin? There would go my very necessary beauty sleep and there would go the country, probably up in flames. It’s a scary thought, isn’t it? Peter Warland is a retired teacher living in Cranbrook, neither policy wonk nor demagogue.

Some competitors have earned some impressive results, which have been good enough to claim spots in the national championships in Quebec City in the middle of May.

Canada steamrolls Norway at worlds DONNA SPENCER Canadian Press

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Steven Stamkos had a goal and three assists to pace Canada to a 7-1 win over Norway at the IIHF World Championship on Tuesday. Canada (2-0-1) played its best first period of the tournament so far and led by four goals after the opening 20 minutes. Taylor Hall had two goals with Andrew Ladd, Matt Duchene, Jeff Skinner and Claude Giroux also scoring for Canada. Jordan Eberle had two assists. Edmonton Oilers goaltender Devan Dubnyk made 13 saves for his second win of the tournament. Canada was second in the Stockholm pool with seven

points. Switzerland led with eight. Canada faces back-to-back games against host Sweden (2-1) on Thursday followed by Belarus (1-2) on Friday. Denmark (1-2) edged winless Slovenia 3-2 in overtime in an earlier game. Russia (3-0) downed the United States 5-3 to top the Helsinki pool. Promoted Austria doubled Latvia 6-3 for their first win. The Latvians (0-3) are coached by Canadian and former Buffalo Sabres head coach Ted Nolan. The top four countries in each pool of eight qualify for the quarter-finals in their respective cities. Canada lost in the quarter-finals in the last three world championships, despite finishing first in their pool the last two.

Norway (2-1) gave goaltender Lars Volden his first start of the tournament after Lars Haugen earned a pair of wins. Ken Andre Olimb scored in Norway’s first loss of the tournament. The Norwegians are ranked No. 8 in the world behind Canada at No. 5. The two countries will be in the same pool at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, next year along with Finland and Austria. Canada’s 22 players had just three practices together as a team prior to their first game here. The NHL’s lockout-shortened regular season ended three weeks later than usual. The Canadians had sluggish first periods and trailed by a goal in both a 3-1 win over Denmark and a 3-2 shootout loss to Switzerland to open the tournament.

Local lacrosse players make regional squad TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Two bantam players with the Cranbrook Oultaws lacrosse team have made the cut for Team Interior, a squad consisting of players from the B.C. Interior that have a chance to make a provincial roster. Conor Sinclair and Kole Tait cracked the roster during a camp in Armstrong at the end of April, as 30 athletes struggled to make the cut for a roster that included 15 spots. “Very hard, very serious. They made you do a lot of high-end drills,” said Sinclair. “Catching was probably the most important part, quick stick, shots, accurac y—putting them on net and not hitting the goalie in the head.” Following their experience over the course of the camp, each athlete was hauled into one-onone meetings with the coaches to go over their tryout and find out if they had the chops to make it onto the roster. “They brought you

in to interview you, they asked some questions, asked what you think you need to work on, how good you did, then they tell you if you made it,” said Sinclair, who added he was pumped to make the cut.

“Very hard, very serious. They made you do a lot of high end drills. Catching was probably the most important part, quick stick, shots, accuracy...” Conor Sinclair He said his intensity was the biggest aspect of his game that he wanted to use to impress the coaches. “Probably the intensity I want to play with—hard on defence, hard on offence, always running my hardest,” said Sinclair. Tait said he came into camp feeling pretty confident in his abilities, but an equipment malfunction nearly

threw him off his game. “I blew up my stick, during a drill, so I kinda had a heart attack there, because I had to switch to my bad stick and I have trouble playing with it,” Tait said. However, he said hard work was the key to getting noticed. “Overall, it was a real good camp, hard work, there was a point where I was sweating so much I could hardly see out of my eyes,” Tait said. Tait said he wanted to prove he belonged on the squad by playing physical and being smart positionally. “Being solid, saving the balls, getting out, being big and stick work,” Tait added. The two will join up with Team Interior for a tournament in the Lower Mainland this weekend featuring other regional teams from around the province. Players on all the regional teams will be scouted and selected based on their merit to the provincial Team B.C. roster.

NHL Playoffs: Sharks complete the sweep, topple Canucks in OT Associated Press


4, OT 3

SAN JOSE, Calif. Patrick Marleau scored a power-play goal 13:18 into overtime and the San Jose Sharks completed their first playoff sweep in franchise history, beating the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 Tuesday night. Joe Pavelski scored his second power-play goal of the game to tie it with 4:27 left in regulation. Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks, who will now get a break before beginning the second round of the playoffs next week. Mason Raymond, Alex Burrows and Alex-

ander Edler scored for the Canucks, who were unable to hold onto a late third-period lead for the second time this series. Cory Schneider made big stops early in the overtime, but gave up the rebound that led to Marleau’s series-clinching goal. With Daniel Sedin sent off for boarding Tommy Wingels, the Sharks came through with their third power-play goal of the night to win it. Joe Thornton’s shot hit off Schneider and the puck was bouncing in the crease when Marleau just got his stick on it to score the winner, setting off a wild celebration at the Shark Tank and sending

Vancouver to another early playoff exit. The Canucks have lost 10 of their past 11 playoff games to raise major questions about the future of a franchise that made it to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals just two years ago. ISLANDERS 6 PENGUINS 4 UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - John Tavares scored with 9:49 left, and New York tied its first-round series with Pittsburgh with a wild victory. Only the final lead was safe in Game 4. Tavares slammed in his own rebound in front after Brad Boyes fed him following a

Winterhawks beat Oil Kings to take lead in WHL final Canadian Press

EDMONTON - The Portland Winterhawks earned a key road victory in the Western Hockey League final. Olivier Bjorkstrand and Taylor Leier each had a goal and an assist for Portland in a 3-1 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings on Tuesday. Ty Rattie also scored as the Winterhawks took a 2-1 lead in the championship series after Portland had to settle for a split at home. Michael St. Croix had the lone goal for Edmonton. “I thought it was a good effort by our team,” said Portland Winterhawks head coach Travis Green. “It was a good road win. Obviously getting a lead like that is important against a team like (Edmonton). They came hard and we weathered the storm a bit and our veteran guys were really good. “We don’t dwell on big wins or big losses. We still have to come to the rink the next game and put a good effort out on the ice, and hopefully (Wednesday) we can have another solid effort.” Portland opened the scoring at 4:39 of the first after Bjorkstrand eluded Edmonton defender Keegan Lowe along the out-

side to set up the feed in front to a wide-open Leier. Rattie doubled the Winterhawks lead with his 17th of the post-season, finishing off an odd-man rush with Nicolas Petan with a wrist shot through Laurent Brossoit’s five-hole at 8:14 of the opening period.

“It was a good road win. Obviously getting a lead like that is important against a team like (Edmonton). They came hard and we weathered the storm a bit and our veteran guys were really good.” Travis Green Bjorkstrand sent Portland into the second period with a 3-0 lead after tucking a backhand up high from in tight at 15:48 into the blocker corner. “Obviously if we could take that first period and throw it out the window, we’d be in the game a bit more,” said Edmonton head coach Derek Laxdal. “We didn’t come out with a lot of urgency. Second and third period we got it going a bit.

But we can’t spot Portland a lead like we have. They’re too good of a hockey club. “From the time you get into the arena, you have to be ready to play. These guys know how to respond, they have all year.” St. Croix put Edmonton on the board at 9:13 of the second, burying a cross-crease feed from Dylan Wruck in behind Portland netminder Mac Carruth. Edmonton nearly made it a one-goal game just moments later as Curtis Lazar broke in alone, but Carruth stretched out with the right pad to keep the Winterhawks ahead 3-1 heading into what would be a scoreless third period. “We have to get more pucks through and we have to be ready when they do get through,” added Edmonton winger T.J. Foster. “We had a couple chances on rebounds where we didn’t bury it. He takes away the lower half, we have to get it upstairs.” Carruth stopped 38 shots in net for Portland, while Brossoit turned aside 24 pucks for Edmonton. Neither team struck on the power play as Portland held four opportunities with the man advantage and Edmonton earned one.

turnover by Penguins star Evgeni Malkin. It was the Islanders’ third one-goal advantage in the game and the one that earned them a 2-2 tie in the highly entertaining series that has featured 5-4 and 6-4 finishes at Nassau Coliseum. Tavares was serenaded with cheers of “M-VP” from the frantic crowd that is believing an upset is possible. Casey Cizikas shoved in a shot with 1:16 left to add some much-needed insurance. Captain Mark Streit scored twice, and Brian Strait and Kyle Okposo also had goals, and Evgeni Nabokov made 27 saves for the eighth-seeded Island-

ers. Game 5 is Thursday in Pittsburgh. SENATORS 3, OT CANADIENS 2 OTTAWA (AP) - Kyle Turris scored 2:32 into overtime, lifting the Senators into a 3-1 lead. Turris’ shot from the sideboards sneaked past Montreal backup goalie Peter Budaj, who came on for the injured Carey Price at the start of overtime. Cory Conacher scored with 22.6 seconds to go in regulation to force overtime. Mika Zibanejad had the other goal for the Senators, who got 26 saves from Craig Anderson. P.K. Subban and Alex

Galchenyuk scored 62 seconds apart in the second period for Montreal. Price made 30 saves two nights after allowing all six goals in Ottawa’s 6-1 victory in Game 3. He was injured on Conacher’s tying goal late in the third period. Game 5 goes Thursday night in Montreal in a series that has seen a little bit of everything. BLACKHAWKS 3 WILD 0 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Patrick Sharp scored two goals for Chicago, and the Blackhawks ratcheted up their defence, putting the Wild on the brink of elimination. Bryan Bickell also

scored and Corey Crawford made 25 saves for the Blackhawks, who built a 3-1 lead in this best-of-seven matchup. The Wild had another goalie get hurt when Josh Harding’s injury forced Darcy Kuemper into action after the first intermission. Sharp scored on Chicago’s first shot at the rookie 62 seconds into the second period. Minnesota, the only one of the 16 NHL playoff teams without a power-play goal this post-season, went scoreless in six man-advantage situations and is 0 for 15 in the series. Game 5 is back in Chicago on Thursday night.

Conley hit a 3-pointer from the left wing with 1:58 left to put the Grizzlies ahead to stay and spark a string of 10 straight points for the Grizzlies. He added an 18-foot jumper to stretch the lead to 94-90, then hit one of two free throws with 29.4 seconds left. After hitting the key baskets in Game 1, Kevin Durant couldn’t provide an answer for the Thunder. He missed his last three shots, including a pair of 3-point attempts, and finished

with 36 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. The Thunder caught a break when Tony Allen tipped the ball away and Conley saved it from going out of bounds, only for it to end up in Durant’s hands in the corner. But Durant was off-target on a 3-pointer, and Oklahoma City was forced to foul. Zach Randolph tacked on two free throws, and Allen then stole the ball from Durant and provided the finishing touches with a dunk. Derek Fisher hit a 3-pointer at the final buzzer for Oklahoma City. Game 3 is Saturday in Memphis.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your imagination plays out with a financial decision. You could be wondering what to do, but if you relax or take a walk, you will know what to do. You might catch some negativity from someone whose opinions you value. Tonight: Do not feel as if you must do anything. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll wake up knowing what you would like to do. Emphasize your priorities. What you need from a certain someone is more acceptance, but you are likely to receive the opposite. Understanding evolves between the two of you, as long as you don’t act out. Tonight: All smiles. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You might want to think through what you are willing to do in a certain situation. Your ability to move forward could be affected by your mood and energy right now. Do not allow someone’s negativity to filter in. Try to maintain an upbeat attitude. Tonight: Play it low-key.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Zero in on what is important. Listen to a suggestion from others; your friends mean well. Your creativity and a brainstorming session might not be as fruitful as a clear-cut suggestion from a friend could be. Do not allow pressure to build. Tonight: Where the action is. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You suddenly might realize that you have more going on than you originally thought. Pressure builds as a result. Have a discussion with someone you trust. You might want this person to pitch in more. You could be overtired or stretched too thin. Tonight: Make it early. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Keep reaching out for more information. A partner can sense that you are looking for something new, and he or she will help you. Communication could be active. Listen and open up. This process is good for you. Tonight: Detach in order to find the answer to a problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might want to consider

For Better or Worse


making a change or doing something very differently. A key partner is far more conservative than you thought. Use care with your finances, as you could be pushed to meet many different demands. Think twice before spending. Tonight: Pay bills. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You’ll find that others are seeking you out, specifically a friend or a group of friends. You might want to head in a different direction. Others see you as negative, but you see yourself as someone who makes strong choices. Tonight: Let others do what they want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Listen to news that is forthcoming. You are going to have to take action and head in a new direction. You have a lot of feelings regarding an investment or piece of real estate. You could have a lot going on right now and feel out of sorts on some level. Tonight: Say “yes.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Someone’s plan might not have been logically thought out. As a

result, a friend could retreat into his or her cocoon. You need to let this person decide when he or she wants to open up. Pushing ultimately will not work. Tonight: Add some fun and adventure to the mix. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might want to rethink a decision more carefully. Do not agree to anything unless you are sure of the fine print and implications involved with a financial agreement; otherwise, there easily could be a last-minute problem. Tonight: Be wherever your friends are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take news with a grain of salt. Open up to a change, but do not be surprised by mounting negativity. Unfortunately, you could get less-than-desirable feedback no matter what you do. You know where you are coming from. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. BORN TODAY Former U.S. president Harry S.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My grandfather passed away last month, and the wake was catered by a close friend of the family who owns a restaurant. He closed off a section of his dining hall for our family. The meal included 15 children under the age of 10, and they were absolute monsters. My nephew threw his shoe across the room and then tripped a waitress. These kids crawled under the tables, poking us with forks and smearing food into the carpet. My cousin’s 8-year-old daughter put open condiment packets in my purse and a baked potato in my mother’s coat pocket and then mashed it into the fabric. People from the other area of the restaurant complained after my nephew threw food at them. My husband and I left, leaving a large tip for the servers. Other relatives did the same. The dining room was an utter disaster. Before we left town the next morning, my husband and I stopped by the restaurant and left additional money for the inconvenience of cleaning food out of the carpet. My grandmother asked the owner for a full bill of the damage and presented it to those children whose offspring made the mess. It started a huge family row, and of course, nobody is taking responsibility for their kids. I’ve never seen such appalling behavior, and I doubt my grandfather would have appreciated such disrespect. My husband and I are tempted to send the restaurant owner an anonymous money order because we doubt he will otherwise be compensated. My parents are supposed to have their 50th anniversary party at this restaurant next month, and the guest list is almost identical. They’re too embarrassed to go, but don’t want to lose their deposit. Should I send the money order? Whatever happened to manners? -- Shocked Granddaughter Dear Shocked: They apparently got stuck with the mashed potatoes. What terrible behavior from the parents who allowed their children to run amok. And they do their children a disservice by making them unwelcome everywhere. We think your parents should go ahead with their plans to celebrate at that restaurant but issue invitations only to the adults. Children who are too immature to behave in public and whose parents refuse to control them should not be included in these events. We suspect your parents paid the cleaning bill, so instead of “donating” money to the restaurant, you might consider doing something special on your folks’ behalf. Dear Annie: Every time I look in the papers, I see articles about wars, death, etc., but never about the homeless, especially homeless children and runaways. Why is that? These children are our future. There seems to be money for everything from new jails to fixing swimming pools, but not a word about money for the homeless. Why? -- Frustrated Dear Frustrated: In the news business, death “sells.” Runaways, not so much. But there are articles on the homeless if you look, and shelters are funded through federal, state and city government allocations, as well as by private philanthropy. You sound like a kind person. Please look for a shelter in your area and volunteer your time. It would be much appreciated. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Cal in Maine,” who complained that his grandchildren rarely communicate with him. I have reread and shared that letter many times. I totally agree with him, as my older grandchildren seem to care little about keeping in touch.

Acting as your own lawyer daunting, frustrating Colin Perkel Canadian Press

TORONTO — Stymied by the high cost of hiring a lawyer, many Canadians are representing themselves in court only to find the experience frustrating,

overwhelming and more complex than they expected, according to a study released Tuesday. In fact, the study finds the ordeal of trying to navigate the legal system can take a profound emotional, financial and

even physical toll on self-represented litigants. The 18-month research project looked at 259 self-represented litigants in Ontario, Alberta and B.C. — equally divided among men and

City of Kimberley PUBLIC NOTICE The City of Kimberley hereby gives notice that it intends to amend City of Kimberley Zoning Bylaw No. 1850, 1994. Bylaw No. 2471 (Amendment No. 119, 2013 to Zoning Bylaw No. 1850, 1994) proposes to create a new M-3 Solar Industrial Zone. The intent of the M-3 zone is to provide for energy generation from renewable sources to foster diversification and growth in the local economy and support environmentally, socially and economically sustainable community development. The M-3 Zone would allow Solar Energy Facility as a permitted use, which is defined as: “an electric generating facility whose main purpose is to collect and convert solar energy to generate, store, distribute and supply electricity and consists of one or more solar collector panel, film, shingle, or other device and other accessory structures and buildings, including substations, electrical infrastructure, transmission lines and other appurtenant structures and facilities.” Bylaw No. 2471 (Amendment No. 119, 2013 to Zoning Bylaw No. 1850, 1994) proposes to rezone land legally described as Part of District Lot 11311 Kootenay District, except parts lying within District Lots 13346, 13347, 13419, 13420 and 13429 (PID 017-006-708) as shown in heavy outline on the map below from M-1 Industrial, Wholesale and Transportation Zone to M-3 Solar Industrial Zone. The subject lands comprise approximately 37.5 hectares (92 acres) on part of the closed Sullivan mine (concentrator) site in Kimberley, BC.

women. About 60 per cent were family court litigants — many involved in divorce proceedings — while most others were litigants involved in various civil cases. Slightly more than half started off with a lawyer before opting to represent themselves, often after paying out large sums. While some said they were simply fed up with their legal representation, most cited the steep

cost of retaining a lawyer — $350 to $400 an hour is not unusual — as the prime motivation for going solo. ``People aren’t doing this because they woke up one morning and thought, ‘I think I fancy myself as (TV lawyer) Perry Mason,’’ study author Julie Macfarlane said in an interview. ``They’re doing it because they cannot afford to pay a lawyer. This isn’t about choice: this is about necessity.’’

Macfarlane, a law professor at the University of Windsor, said hers is the first study to look at s e l f - re p re s e n t a t i o n through the eyes of ``regular, hard-working ordinary folk’’ who end up in court and can’t afford a lawyer. Macfarlane said she was surprised at the huge stress self-represented litigants experience, saying her research felt like grief counselling. While legal resources

Canada pulls plug on funding program to retrain ex-Soviet scientists Canadian Press

OTTAWA — Canada is pulling out of two international programs aimed at ensuring ex-Soviet scientists don’t end up working for terrorist groups. The programs, one in Moscow and the other in the Ukraine, were set up in the early 1990s as a means to give weapons

experts a place to work following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Canada has contributed some $60 million to the two centres since 2004, funding more than 100 different projects. But Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says Canada is now focusing its funding on combating existing weapons of

mass destruction and the post-Cold War centres are no longer required. Canada’s decision to leave likely signals the collapse of the program in Moscow, which has been expected to close since Russia announced in 2010 it would withdraw.

City of Kimberley PUBLIC NOTICE The City of Kimberley hereby gives notice that it intends to amend the fence regulations that will apply to all lands in Kimberley. Bylaw No. 2468 (Amendment No. 117, 2013) proposes numerous amendments to Zoning Bylaw No. 1850 that affect the maximum allowable fence height and other changes to improve clarity and certainty of the fence regulations. The amendments include a proposed increase to the maximum allowable fence height in side and rear yard locations from 1.8m (6ft.) to 2.15m (7ft.) as recommended by the Urban Deer Advisory Committee.

A Public Hearing for Bylaw No. 2471 will be held on Monday, May 13, 2013 at 6:30 pm in the Council Chamber at City Hall, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC. If you believe that your interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw, you may: a. Submit written presentations to City Hall prior to the hearing, or b. Submit written and/or verbal presentations at the hearing. Bylaw No. 2471, Zoning Bylaw No. 1850 and the supporting documentation may be inspected at City Hall from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm weekdays until the date of the hearing. For further information, please call Mr. Troy Pollock, Manager, Planning Services at City Hall, 250-427-9664. DATED the 7th day of May, 2013.

Bylaw No. 2469 (Amendment No. 33, 2013) proposes numerous amendments to the Alpine Resort Zoning Bylaw No. 2016 that affect the maximum allowable fence height and other changes to improve clarity and certainty of the fence regulations. The amendments include a proposed increase to the maximum allowable fence height in side and rear yard locations from 1.8m (6ft.) to 2.15m (7ft.) as recommended by the Urban Deer Advisory Committee.

Submit written and/or verbal presentations at the hearing. Bylaws 2468 & 2469 and Zoning Bylaws 1850 & 2016 may be inspected at City Hall from 8:30 am to 4:45 pm weekdays until the date of the hearing. For further information, please call Mr. Troy Pollock, Manager, Planning Services at City Hall, 250-427-9664. DATED the 7th day of May, 2013.

are increasingly available online, the study finds they require some legal knowledge to be of use, and may not be of much concrete help. Simply finding and filling out the right forms — even those offered online — proved a daunting challenge to many, leading to mistakes and timewasting, as well as to added workload for court staff. Respondents found court personnel often tried to be helpful but didn’t have enough time, or staff worried about being seen to offer legal advice. The study proposes several recommendations, key among them is recognizing that self-represented litigants — by necessity — are now a permanent part of the justice system.

Ireland pardons deserters who fought for Britain in WW II Associated Press

DUBLIN, Ireland — Ireland’s government is pardoning nearly 5,000 men who deserted its armed forces during World War II to fight for Britain against Nazi Germany and Japan. Justice Minister Alan Shatter says a bill pardoning the men and apologizing to their families is being introduced Tuesday into parliament and faces rapid passage. Shatter says the gesture is long overdue because nearly all the war veterans are already dead. He says it should remove ``any tarnish from their name or reputation.’’ The deserters were barred from Irish state employment and pensions at war’s end, reducing many of their families to poverty. Ireland remained neutral and refused to accept Jewish refugees. Its prime minister, Eamon de Valera, was the only western leader to offer condolences to Germany following Hitler’s death in 1945.

NEWS Africa is riskiest Scientists identify dog-sized dinosaur place to be born that once roamed southern Alberta 1 million babies die on day of birth globally, new report says Jason Straziuso Associated Press

NAIROBI, Kenya — More than 1 million babies die the day they are born every year, according to a new report released Tuesday, and the 14 countries with the highest rates of first-day deaths are all in Africa. Somalia, Congo, Mali, Sierra Leone and Central African Republic are the five countries with the highest rates of first-day deaths, according to the report “Surviving the First Day’’ from the aid group Save the Children. “Health care for mothers in sub-Saharan Africa is woefully insufficient. On average, only half the women in the region receive skilled care during birth,’’ the report said. “The region as a whole has only 11 doctors, nurses and midwives per 10,000 people, less than half the critical threshold of 23 generally considered necessary to deliver essential health services.’’ The numbers in Somalia — a country wracked by 20 years of violence with little established government and few health services — are particularly grim. Eighteen out of 1,000 babies in Somalia die the day they are born, the report said. Five per cent of newborns die within the first month of life and one in six won’t live to age five, it said. “What’s worse, Somalia has seen absolutely no improvement in newborn or child survival in at least two decades,’’ it said. Somali women have on average more than six children, the second-highest fertility rate in the world. Pre-birth care to expectant mothers is largely not available in Somalia, said Dr. Omar Saleh, a World Health Organization official who frequently travels to health facilities in rural Somalia. “And then the natal care itself, which is delivery, some of the obstructed labours are delayed due to the long distances to medical care or insecurity or high prices of transport,’’ Saleh said. “And then

after delivery the main thing is the availability of incubators. And the whole science of neo-natal care is a huge science that is not well developed in Somalia.’’ In terms of absolute numbers, the most firstday deaths occur in India — more than 300,000 per year, the report said. Nigeria has nearly 90,000 per year. Improvements in access to contraceptives, maternal nutrition and breastfeeding practices will save more lives, Melinda Gates, of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, wrote in a forward to the report. “Saving newborn lives will prevent incalculable suffering. It is also a vital piece of the global development agenda. The long-term economic prospects of poor countries depend on investments in the health, nutrition and education of the people, particularly the women and young children living there,’’ Gates wrote. Nearly all of newborn deaths — 98 per cent — occur in developing countries, a statistic that underlines a widening gap between the health of the world’s rich and poor, the report says. “A mother in sub-Saharan Africa, for example, is 30 times more likely than a mother in an industrialized country to lose a newborn baby at some point in her life,’’ the report concluded. “On average, one in six African mothers is likely to lose a newborn baby, a commonplace but largely untold tale of grief.’’

TORONTO — A newly identified species of dome-headed dinosaur roughly the size of a large dog once roamed the plains of southern Alberta, a team of Canadian scientists announced Tuesday. The discovery of the Acrotholus Audeti touched off further investigation that suggested the world’s dinosaur population was more diverse than once believed. Details of the study were published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications. Study lead author David Evans, curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Royal Ontario Museum, said Acrotholus’ comparatively diminutive size belies its scientific importance. The two-legged plant-eater stood no higher than an adult human’s knee and weighed only 40 kilograms, measurements similar to a German shepherd or other large-breed canine. Evans, however, said the animal has become an important puzzle piece for those committed to mapping out the rise and fall of the dinosaur. “We actually don’t have a very good record of dinosaurs from North America, or even the world, as a whole through this interval … around 85 million years ago,’’ Evans said in a telephone interview. “So we went to the areas that exposed the sediments trying to find the fossils that would help fill in that gap in our knowledge.’’

Researchers were guided in their quest by an early discovery made by museum staff in the late 1940s, Evans said. Researchers unearthed a partial fossil of a dinosaur featuring a thick dome of solid bone over its eyes in the Milk River formation of southern Alberta, but found the sample had deteriorated too far to be of much use. Present-day researchers had better luck in 2008 when they came across a nearly perfectly preserved fossil on the land of a southern Alberta cattle rancher. Evans said he was stunned to discover an intact specimen, explaining scientists are rarely afforded the chance to study smaller dinosaur skeletons. “The species representation of small animals is generally poorer than large animals because the bones of small ones are more susceptible to carnivores and weathering processes,’’ he said. “The bones of small animals tend to get destroyed before they enter the fossil re-

A reconstruction of Acrotholus Audeti, an 85-million-year-old dome-headed dinosaur, is shown in this handout photo. Researchers believe the dogsized dinosaur used to roam the region that is now southern Alberta cord.’’ The skeletal characteristic that helped preserve the fossil was ultimately the one that gave the species its name. Acrotholus is derived from the Greek words for “high dome’’ and describe the 10-centimetre bone mass on the animal’s head. The distinctive skull formation, which places Acrotholus within a group of dinosaurs known as pachycephalosaurs, also opened the door to a wider investigation of dinosaur diver-

sity, Evans said. He and his team examined all 600 of the pachycephalosaur specimens discovered to date in order to determine how many subspecies there were within that group. The team concluded there were at least 16 varieties of animals featuring the distinctive dome, including acrotholus. Evans said the findings challenge stereotypical images of dinosaurs as mammoth creatures running roughshod over all smaller

species. The study of pachycephalosaurs alone, he said, suggests the dinosaur population was more diverse and complex than conventional wisdom suggests. “The only reason we know that pachycephalosaurs were so diverse is because of these domes which seem to be preferentially preserved in the fossil record,’’ he said. “And so if other dinosaur groups are anything like pachycephalosaurs, they were probably a lot more diverse too.”

High youth unemployment a burden also for boomer parents Julian Beltr ame Canadian Press

OTTAWA — Along with reduced pensions, low returns on their savings and high debt, Canada’s boomer generation is facing an additional burden as they ease into their retirement years — their “boomerang kids.’’ A report from TD Canada Trust suggests boomers are taking on more of the responsibility for their adult children struggling to attain financial self-sufficiency in

the post-recession years of high youth unemployment and low wage gains. The report, based on an online survey by Environics Research, shows a majority of boomers have stepped up to help support their adult children, and that as many as one-in-five say they would be prepared to put their own financial security at risk to help out. The number one way of helping out is providing free room and board, but also

contributing to major purchases like cars or computers, helping pay for rent and groceries and of course, paying off credit card bills. “Today high youth unemployment, increasing post-secondary education costs and high property prices means many young people are more likely to rely financially on their parents well into adulthood,’’ said John Tracy, senior vice-president of TD Canada Trust of the results.

But Tracy warns boomers there is a risk of doing too much, particularly if it jeopardizes retirement plans. Other studies have noted that with more than 60 per cent of Canadians not having a company pension plan to fall back on, many pre-retirees have not saved sufficiently to maintain anything resembling their current lifestyles. Some have chosen to work beyond traditional retirement years to maintain their standard of living.

BC nurses say

keep the promise of quality through


safe staffing

a message from BC’s nurses to the next provincial government Keep the Promise to nurses and to the people who rely on our care • hire more than 2,000 additional nurses by 2016

• ensure nurses are replaced or added according to patients’ needs, not just budgets

• listen to nurses and trust our judgement about what patients need

• give nurses a key role in healthcare planning • use nurses to the fullest extent of their

knowledge and practice to improve services for British Columbians in primary healthcare, seniors’ care, rural communities and elsewhere

Help us hold our employers and the politicians accountable. Vote for candidates who commit to keeping the promise of safer care in our public healthcare system. Authorized by the BC Nurses’ Union, registered sponsor under the Election Act, 604-433-2268


At the other end of the age spectrum, young Canadians remain the most affected by the 2008-09 recession and the subsequent weak recovery. TD Bank economist Francis Fong says poor economies always hit the young the hardest and this time is no exception. The repercussions tend to go far beyond just high joblessness numbers, he says. And the longer the young are out of work, the harder it

will be for them to catch up. A British study calculates that a period of unemployment ranging from seven to 12 months for workers in the 15-24 age group can, on average, cause an 11 per cent wage loss by the age of 33, and 7.6 per cent loss by the age of 42. The Environics survey did not indicate for how long boomers on average extend help to their adult children, but suggests the phenomenon is widespread.
