Council finds compromise over fireworks By Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Compromise seems to have quelled the public furor over a council decision to move the Canada Day fireworks event to the August long weekend. The decision had sparked a public protest in front of Sicamous’ civic centre on Monday, June. 3. Coun. Terry Rysz, who had supported the decision, told those present that they had been heard, and that the matter would be brought back to council. Subsequently, at a special meeting held Friday, June 7, council voted to rescind the previous decision and move the fireworks display back to Canada Day. Afterwards, council voted in favour of another motion, to split the $20,000 the district has budgeted for fireworks this year so as to hold two shows, with 75 per cent of the funding going towards one on Canada Day, and 25 per cent towards a second in August. These decisions were preceded by comments to the packed council chamber gallery from meeting chair, Mayor Darrell Trouton. He explained the vote to keep fireworks on the August long weekend – At the end of the when they were held last year day, council makes a on account of the state of emer- decision that it feels gency the community was in is best for the comthroughout July – was valid munity as a whole. and legal.

Darrell Trouton “We are not here to force Mayor opinion upon others, but listen to the opinion of others,” said Trouton. “At the end of the day, council makes a decision that it feels is best for the community as a whole. While we can’t please everyone, we can listen to everyone.” Overall, the meeting was civil, though on more than one occasion Trouton was prompted to warn the audience that outbursts would not be tolerated. “We are going to keep this very orderly, and that will be a first warning,” stated Trouton upon receiving a critical comment from the gallery. “After that, we will remove people from the chamber or ask you to leave please. Just so you know, we do plan on keeping this an orderly meeting.” Two RCMP officers were stationed at the council chamber doors throughout. Trouton said after the meetSee District on page 2

Sewer extension projects stay on budget By Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Sicamous’ sewer extension projects are expected to be completed within the district’s $10 million budget, which includes a contingency worth close to $1 million. At the May 22 council meeting, the Local Government Management Association of B.C.’s Kathleen Day provided a breakdown of what money has gone where in the extensive sewer collection system expansion projects. These cover extensions through phase 1B (Chapman/ Hemlock), phase 2 (Gillis/Elliot/Dogwood/

Cottonwood), phase 4 (Larch to Highway 97A/Kappel to Pine), phase 5 (Parksville,/ Sherlock Road area), phase 6, as well as to the Two Mile subdivision and the west side of the channel. The total budget for this amounts to $11,578,278. This includes $1,528,322 in developer contributions, $6,090,866 in provincial and federal grant funding and $4,029,582 in funds borrowed by the District of Sicamous. The $4 million includes a 10 per cent, $913,356 contingency fund. The district was able to borrow the funds in February 2010, after receiving public consent

through an alternate approval process Based on available information, Day explained the district appeared to be within the approved budget and should remain so to the end of the project. In her written report to council, Day estimates the municipality is expected to use all but $85,000 of the contingency. “The west side of the channel still has to be completed and the Two Mile extension will be completed in the next month or so. So, based on that budget, everything appears to be going along according to plan,” said Day. As of Dec. 31, $9.4

million has been spent on the project and Day said that for 2013, “the town has budgeted just over $2 million for sewer capital works for those (latter) two additional phases, for a total of $11.5 million.” As of May 16, the district had borrowed $3 million. Day explained another $1 million would still have to be borrowed, adding the district already has approval to borrow the entire $4 million. One particular challenge spoken to in Day’s report relates to developer contributions. Their $1.5 million is represented in cash payments and letters of credit. But

not being not being able to locate signed agreements between the district and the two developers involved specifying what expenditures each developer was responsible for appeared to make for additional work and some uncertainty. Day writes, “the lack of agreements also raises concerns regarding what actions are available to the district… if the costs are more or less than the dollar value that has been provided by each developer.” Mayor Darrell Trouton reiterated the extensions to the west side of the channel as well as Two Mile are under budget.

District fireworks budget split 75-25 for two events Continued from front

ing that it was important council did not feel intimidated. “The RCMP were here to make sure that things didn’t get out of hand,” said Trouton. “I’ve been at other meetings where you want to remove somebody from the chamber because they’re speaking out or not behaving themselves and then you have to wait for the RCMP to get here. They were in the area and it was nice to have them here.” Council’s decision to move fireworks back to July 1st was reached fairly quickly and with little debate. After the decision, and the following applause, however, Trouton gave another speech, this time

CALENDAR OF EVENTS

delving into the history of the Canada Day fireworks and how it went from a $1,000 community-funded event in 2004, to a $10,000 event in 2006 funded by the district, to an $18,000 event in 2012. “The idea and the gist is, our community has been struggling. there are businesses up and down our streets that have been struggling, there are businesses in receivership. And people have to look at things…,” said Trouton, who then went on to explain how this year the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association and Shuswap Tourism are looking to focus on and showcase the community this August, when the district is hoping to bring

back Moose Mouse Days. He then went on to recommend a motion to split the fireworks funding 50-50, for fireworks shows on July 1st and on August long weekend. District administrator Heidi Frank said the company that oversees the fireworks said there was enough funding to have “a spectacular display with little repetition” on both days. But this did not sit well with council. Busch did not want to see any split. Coun Hutchinson was concerned how the split would impact the volume of fireworks on Canada Day, and suggested amending the mayor’s motion to a 75-25 split, with the idea that the August event could be built up

Kyllo passed over for cabinet, receives other duties

Government: Rookie Shuswap MLA named secretary for jobs plan, part of LNG working group. By Tracy Hughes

Eagle Valley News

Rookie Shuswap representative Greg Kyllo will start his provincial political career getting his feet wet as an MLA. In an announcement Friday, Kyllo, who had been touted by some as a candidate for a cabinet post, was not among those named to a direct portfolio by Christy Clark. Greg Kyllo was named parliamentary secretary for the BC Jobs Plan reporting to Shirley Bond, the minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training. Clark says Kyllo

will, “use his experience as a business owner to work with government to update and continue implementing the BC Jobs Plan.” Clark arranged a public ceremony on the Vancouver waterfront to unveil her new cabinet lineup. The event was a departure from the tradition of making the announcement at Government House in Victoria. The official swearing-in ceremony took place in Victoria on Monday, followed by the oaths of office for MLAs. Kyllo will be jumping right into the fray,

as Christy Clark told her MLAs to expect a rare summer session of the legislature in order to deal with urgent business, including the passing of the budget introduced by the Liberals in February. The session is expected to begin in late July. He has also been named to the Treasury Board, the Cabinet Committee on Strong Economy and the Cabinet Working Group on Liquefied Natural Gas. Former Shuswap MLA George Abbott, who recently retired from politics, held a number of cabinet posts including stints as the minister of health

and minister of education. Abbott began his provincial career on the opposition side of government as a critic for municipal affairs and forests. Clark named a total of 19 people to her cabinet including both Kamloops MLAs.  Kamloops-North MLA Terry Lake, formerly minister of environment, is now minister of health. Todd Stone, the rookie MLA for Kamloops-South Thompson, has been named minister of transportation and deputy house leader. The cabinet also included posts for veteran minister Rich Cole-

man, who becomes deputy premier and Mike de Jong, who was named minister

of finance. Bond was named Jobs, Tourism, and Skills Training minister and minister

for June 19

responsible for Labour and Mary Polak was given the post of environment minister.

MLA bid a learning experience for Rysz By Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. While the sentiment may be a bit extreme for Terry Rysz, he doesn’t deny his recent unsuccessful run for the B.C. Conservatives in the Prince George-Mackenzie riding has made him a stronger councillor for Sicamous. Rysz earned 4.47 per cent of the vote (755 votes) while frontrunner, BC Liberal Mike Morris received 55.26 per cent, followed by the NDP and Green candidates. Rysz describes the

election as a humbling experience, but highly educational. “I was doing four to five hours worth of research a day while I was up there. Issues like health care, education, mining, the forest industry, infrastructure…” said Rysz. “It was a learning experience and it was good one, and I think I’ll be

a way better councillor because of it. “One of the things you do is learn about an area and the issues within the area, that’s one aspect of it. But you sure learn a lot about yourself when you’re dealing with this stuff and the dynamics around a provincial election… It was a really positive experience and I certainly don’t regret it.” One big takeaway for Rysz was the opportunity to sharpen his communication skills – a result of numerous public forums and media interviews. “You’ve got to keep it really calm, cool and

collected to get your message across, and that’s something I think I got from it,” says Rysz. “I was in front of a mic all the time there and at first I was pretty nervous, especially on television, but I got better as time went on.” Rysz also congratulated former fellow councillor Greg Kyllo for his victory with the BC Liberals in the Shuswap riding. “(He) will be visiting us and we’ll be visiting him in the legislature, and we’ll be dealing with some of the issues that concern Sicamous, and I certainly look forward to that opportunity,” says Rysz.

Infrastructure at risk under federal funding formula

M

unicipal politicians from across the country flooded into Vancouver last weekend. They were there for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ annual convention. And while their backgrounds were as diverse as the communities they represented, their message was strikingly similar: Fix the funding. It’s not a new complaint. For decades Canada’s cities have been telling Ottawa that they need more money if they are to do the things they are increasingly expected to do. The complaints began in the 1990s, when the federal government began to cut funding as it dealt with a ballooning deficit and public debt. As transfer payments to provincial governments shrank, so too did many of the services the federal government traditionally provided (like low-cost housing). Provincial governments tried to take up the slack, but inevitably the cuts continued to trickle down to municipalities. Today, many B.C. municipalities are faced with providing a level of service they never did in the past, particularly in the realm of social services, transportation, and protective service like policing. They’ve done this because they’ve had little choice; there is no one left to download the cuts to. Instead, they must find new revenue from a taxpayer pool that is shallow and offers little flexibility. Deferring expenses is an option. But as roads and bridges deteriorate, it leads to an “infrastructure deficit” that must eventually be paid off. That’s left municipalities calling for a change in the way cities are funded. There were promises of new money at the convention, but that’s not enough. What is needed is a change in the way the funding flows. Canada’s cities have grown up. It is time governments stop treating them like children who are incapable of spending their allowance responsibly. -Chilliwack Progress

Greater scrutiny needed for MLA expenses By Tom Fletcher News Columnist

VICTORIA – As she unveiled her new cabinet, Premier Christy Clark promised a “line-by-line” review of government spending to deliver a balanced budget this year. Statements such as this would have more credibility if politicians subjected their own personal spending to the same scrutiny. That’s still not happening in B.C. Expense accountability has come a long way in the last year, thanks mainly to the work of nowdeparted Auditor General John Doyle, who swung the cobweb-covered door open on B.C.’s secretive Legislative Assembly Management Committee. Chaired by the speaker and run by senior MLAs from both parties,  the committee had been  doing pretty much whatever it wanted with MLAs’ own expenses. Doyle’s audit found

that MLA credit card bills were being paid without receipts, part of a lax accounting system that included inaccurate bank records and inadequate management of the legislature gift shop and dining room. The operating budget of the legislature and constituencies runs to more than $60 million a year. Now-retired speaker Bill Barisoff asked the auditor to give a pass to the $119,000 annual allowance for each of the 85 constituency offices. Transfer amounts and payroll expenses were verified, but constituency expenses were not, likely because these records weren’t kept either. I’m not suggesting that there has been any misuse of public funds. The point is we don’t know, and the notion of an “honour system” for politicians’ expenses has become unacceptable. A similar toxic tale has been unfolding in the Senate in Ottawa. It has its own

secretive committee called the Board of Internal Economy, which was forced into the open after trying to sweep Senator Mike Duffy’s housing claims under the red rug of the Senate chamber. Duffy has lived in Ottawa for decades, first as a TV host and then senator, but he decided the rules were loose enough that he could claim his summer place in Prince Edward Island as his principal residence. An audit has also found he was claiming living expenses in Ottawa while campaigning for the Conservatives back east. It turns out the key ingredient in an honour system is honour. Many years ago, British MPs convinced themselves that they were underpaid, and rather than create a public fuss by giving themselves a big raise, they would be able to top it up by claiming up to 250 pounds at a time without receipts. Cheers! You can imagine how

well that worked out. As one observer put it, the system was not only open to abuse, it was actually designed for it. Here in B.C., the next step is obvious. If you go to the website of Alberta Premier Alison Redford, you can easily find the link to her detailed expense reports, itemized for travel, meals, hotel rooms and so forth. Alberta cabinet ministers provide the same disclosure. B.C. cabinet  ministers’  travel expenses are now reported, but only as an occasional lump sum. As a result of Doyle’s revelations last summer, B.C.’s Legislative Assembly Management Committee now meets in public, with transcripts of proceedings available. But MLA expenses are still not itemized. Total expenditures are being reported on a quarterly basis, but with no detail to explain why some MLAs have much higher totals than others. It’s time to sweep out the cobwebs.

Right decision, wrong attitude We attended the District of Sicamous special council meeting on Friday, June 7, which was called to revisit the issue of fireworks for Canada Day. It would be appropriate to thank Coun. Terry Rysz for making this happen. We were very satisfied with the outcome of this meeting but were rather perturbed at the petulance of our mayor when he did not get his way. Perhaps he should be paying more attention to the people he serves rather than the people who serve him. Case in point: his tirade of the cost of fireworks for the Canada Day celebrations. Yet that same amount would be spent for the B.C. Day Celebrations which he was promoting. If the cost was too high, he would have had more credibility if he had wanted the fireworks cancelled completely. The mayoralty is not a position one takes on

DISTRICT OF SICAMOUS PUBLIC HEARING Pursuant to the provisions of the Local Government Act and the Community Charter, NOTICE is hereby given that the Council of the District of Sicamous will hold a PUBLIC HEARING in Council Chambers, District Office, 446 Main Street, Sicamous, B.C. on Wednesday, June 26th, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. to consider the following applications Seasonal Temporary Use Permits relating to the upcoming Summer Stomp and Burnout. Proposal: To enhance and encourage economic and tourism activities within the community, while the establishment of a Camping and RV Park is explored, it is proposed that a Seasonal Temporary Use Permit be considered for certain properties adjacent to or nearby the District Wastewater Treatment Plant and Green Space Park facility at which the proposed Stomp event will take place, to allow short term temporary self-contained RV parking use on property at 1721 Hillier Road East.

Good call:

Applause erupts following council’s decision Friday to move fireworks back to Canada Day. Photo by Lachlan Labere to invoke one’s own agenda. It is a position that listens to the voice of the people and acts accordingly for the benefit of the community as a whole and not a select group. Treating the citizens to verbal threats of dismissal does not make for a continued relationship. We would hope that in future endeavours, his worship will be more concerned with the people he serves and not his own wants. Peter and Betty Powell

Ways to nip weed problems in the bud Ah, the wonderful world of weeds! They’re here to greet us in early spring and they keep us busy until it snows again. Our beautiful gardens of Eden can easily become our gardens of weedin’ and if you can’t see the forest for the trees – well, for some, you can’t see their gardens for the weeds. Weeds are defined as ‘undesirable plants, considered to be useless, cumbersome or troublesome.’ Basically this means that they can range from pigweed to petunias, from dainty to devilish. In Ken Thompson’s The Book of Weeds – How to Deal With Plants That Behave Badly, he writes: “Since the dawn of gardening history, horticulturists have waged ceaseless war against a ruthless invader. From the lawns of stately homes to miniscule urban plots, weeds have been the gardener’s perennial enemy.” Ralph Waldo Emerson’s version of a weed is: “Simply a plant whose virtues haven’t yet been discovered.” So I suppose it’s all about perspective. But generally speaking, weeding can either be an easy exercise or a royal pain in the grass. Weeds possess a multitude of takeover tactics and techniques.

Gaia GardeninG margo westaway

For instance, there are those marauders like the relentlessly roaming rhizomes of couch grass, others that deploy wafting white parachutes that float their seeds willy-nilly in the wind like dandelions and some that produce wee weeds for next year’s crop by shooting them out from seed pods. Others produce bazillions of bulbetts too tiny to detect and then there’s weeds that actually get stimulated to grow even more of them when messed with. There are happy hookers like burrs that hitchhike about on unsuspecting passersby and vines that send runners to randomly claim more real estate. Taproots can tunnel so deep that you need to excavate a 3-ft. hole to extract them and the big brutes require the bucket of a backhoe. Then to add insult to injury, factor in those nasty weeds that pose considerable risk to us

gardeners, such as the ones armed with sharp thorns, prickly stems and nasty stingers. Sometimes we win the battle but other times we can be totally defeated once they take hold, requiring complete soil removal and starting from scratch. Ugh! To nip the situation in the bud, we gardeners have a number of weedbusting strategies to out-smart and out-gun them. The most effective means of counterattack is simply using the ‘best before date’ method, which is dealing with the weeds before the problem gets out of hand. We can dig them out before they get big and belligerent, decapitate or weed-whack ’em before they waft away, imprison them within barriers before they intrude or smother and suffocate before they spread and spray. Some may still resort to lethal liquidation, but remember, that always comes with a price to the rest of the un-targeted critters around them. Other ways to avoid your weeding woes is to: a) bullet-proof your garden beds and borders with impenetrable deep barriers (versatile Dinoflex mats work the best for me.); b) don’t buy or accept plants with dodgy backgrounds and questionable origins,

like the ones you buy at community plant sales, or the new exotic goodies at the store, without doing some due diligence first, c) clean off all root balls as best as you can if they came from another garden and don’t use that soil; d) have rich, loose soils for ease of extraction;, e) consider what your soil conditions are in case you’ve created the perfect environment for those weeds to grow in; f) use the ‘when in doubt, leave it out’ rule for your compost; and lastly, g) get rid of the dirty players in your gardens for good and replace them with something less troublesome. “Weeds” can be the good guys too, and perhaps we could be more attentive of their purpose and perfection. They grow in places to bring needed nutrients up to the surface or to fix nutrient imbalances in depleted or damaged soils, so maybe we could learn to be plant whisperers and listen to what they’re trying to tell us. They can enrich your compost or can be used as a healthy mulch cover by using the chop and drop method. Weeds can be highly nutritious as well as a culinary delight and can possess important medicinal qualities. Weeding can be a

THE 2013 GRADUATING CLASS OF

EAGLE RIVER SECONDARY SCHOOL

Photo by Lachlan Labere

Principal’s Message to Grads

Congratulations, Class of 2013!

Graduation is, of course, a special time in the life of everyone who completes school. It is at the same time a happy and a sad occasion; the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next. It is not the end of just another school year, but the grand culmination of thirteen years of education – an education in school with books and teachers, and tests, and reports and field trips and sports and arts and music… but also an education in life, in joy and sorrow and laughter and tears and romance and friendship. Don’t ever forget the people who helped you and stood by you: teachers, parents, family, Scott Anderson and friends. We are all very proud of you. Go out in the Principal world and be the best you can be. Learn, laugh, love, see, do, Eagle River listen, experience. Most of all, do what makes you happy and Secondary be true to yourself. Congratulations and best wishes! Mayor’s Message
