Burns Lake to lose only full-time doctor

Story on page 3


No agreement with Huckleberry

Burns Lake is about to lose it’s only full-time doctor. Doctor Kibonge will be leaving at an unspecified date. According to Northern Health (NH), he is leaving for family reasons. “The workload will be managed by the remaining physicians and locum support, and the emergency department is expected to remain open,” said Eryn Collins, NH spokesperson. Recently, the Burns Lake hospital has been short-staffed in its emergency room, leading to reports of patients being diverted to other hospitals in the region. “It should be noted that a recent emergency room coverage issue was related to an unexpected and unavoidable nursing shortage, and not to any physician issues,” clarified Colins. “Physician recruitment for Burns Lake continues to be a high priority for Northern Health.” Doctor Kibonge came to Burns Lake from South Africa in June, 2012. When he arrived, he became Burns Lake’s only full-time doctor. At the time, he joked that he didn’t mind the workload, but to get back to him in a year. “Ask me again in year and see if the answer has changed,” he said at the time. Burns Lake has not yet enjoyed the success other northern communities have had in attracting doctors. In the span of one year, the Stuart Lake hospital in Fort St. James went from one doctor to four full-time physicians. Currently, Burns Lake is served by three part-time doctors, and Dr. Kibonge.

Wet’suwet’en First Nation continues to negotiate with Huckleberry Mines Ltd. regarding ongoing issues.

Man missing on Francois Lake since last Friday Walter Strong Burns Lake RCMP and Search and Rescue (SAR) responded to a Francois Lake boating accident on the evening of June 7, 2013, after being alerted by witnesses that a male wearing a life jacket was clinging to a capsized boat at 7:30 p.m. The small boat was overturned in rough waters. Of the two male passengers, one made it to shore and was transported to Prince George for medical treatment. The other male is still unaccounted for, and is reported to be local resident Syd Neville. According to local RCMP the search has been downgraded to a recovery effort, as the missing boater is assumed to be drowned. Burns Lake RCMP and SAR had set up a command station at Sandy’s RV and Camping Resort, on the northwest side of Francois Lake. “Numerous people showed up with Laura Blackwell photo boats and ATVs,” said John Rempel, Burns Lake Search and Rescue were called out last Friday to assist in the search for a man missing since his boat was Burns Lake SAR search manager. “Search overturned in heavy waters. A second male passenger was recovered and transported to Prince George hospital for and Rescue teams from Houston, Vanderhoof and Prince George aided Burns Lake medical treatment.

SAR.” By the end of Saturday evening, more than 100 SAR personal, volunteers, and the RCMP were involved in the search. Numerous boats, ATVs, a helicopter and two float planes were involved in the search. Sandy’s RV and Camping Resort served as a base station for the efforts and accommodated searchers. The second passenger was spotted floating on top of the over-turned boat by people on the shoreline. He was flown to Prince George Regional Hospital suffering from severe hypothermia. The second male is reported to be Syd Neville’s 21-year old nephew. Searchers recovered a cooler and a life jacket along the shore. Burns Lake RCMP report that the missing passenger was not wearing a life jacket when the boat capsized. The local community is very saddened by this sudden and terrible accident. Volunteers continue to search the area. Francois Lake is located approximately 26 kilometres south of Burns Lake.

Waiting for a breathe of fresh air

Fresh air wasn’t so fresh last year Walter Strong A June 5, 2013 report put out by the B.C. Lung Association (BCLA) raises the alarm on air quality in Northern B.C., particularly in communities where large number of the population live within 500 metres of a highway. With the Trans-Canada Hwy. passing right through the heart of so many Northern B.C. communities, including Burns Lake, the BCLA warns that these communities must be on guard to minimize exposure to air pollution. “Traffic emissions are linked to a growing number of acute and chronic health effects," says Dr. Menn Biagtan, program manager for the BCLA. “Emerging research continues to re-affirm the importance of minimizing our exposure to air pollution yet no particular agency or level of government has the specific responsibility to do anything about it.” In 2012, the province began a roll-out of new, more accurate air quality monitoring devices. Not all older stations have been replaced, but where new data is available, two northern communities stand out for their poor air quality. Vanderhoof and Smithers both recorded fine particulate matter concentrations in the air that were higher than 2012 provincial objectives. Vanderhoof had the highest level of particulate matter for the province, at 10.9

micrograms of fine particulate pollutant per cubic meter of air. Smithers just missed the podium in fourth place with a reading of 8.9 micrograms of fine particulate pollutant per cubic meter of air. Although air quality is generally recognized as good throughout the province, the central and north central interior faces a number of air quality challenges. According to a 2012 report from the B.C. Air Quality, the main sources of fine

particulate matter are open burning (29 per cent), the pulp, paper, and wood industry (27 per cent), residential wood combustion (15 per cent), transportation (11 per cent), other industry (8 per cent), and forest fires (3 per cent). Burns Lake does not have one of the new monitors in place. Current monitoring stations in the Burns Lake area do not monitor for the fine particulate matter that the new stations detect.

Air quality issues silent but real

Expense cleanup must continue

The results of the 2013 B.C. Lung Association report on air quality came as a surprise to some. Vanderhoof had the worst air quality from the point of view of fine particulate matter in the province? Who would have guessed that? It appears that pockets of poor air are the norm across north-central B.C. When a person thinks of the north, he or she thinks of clean air, clean water, and everything that goes with those two ideas. A person doesn’t necessarily think of the corridor between Prince George and Prince Rupert as becoming more and more of an industrial, resource energy corridor. What carefully planned and positioned cutblocks and visual quality remainders (reminders?) of what used to be thick forest on either side of the highway cannot hide is the fact that resource extraction throughout the region is showing no sign of slowing down. If it were slowing down, we’d be looking at an economic slowdown as well. If the recent election results can be taken to mean anything at all, it is that the majority of residents up here don’t want that. That doesn’t mean that the province has the social license to proceed with industrial development at all costs. Take three recent examples. We saw that prior to the last election, when changes to the forest act were perceived to be moving along too hastily, the province had to back down and postpone the changes until further public consultation had taken place. The province recently rejected the Northern Gateway proposal - at least as it stands for the moment - largely because it couldn’t possibly overlook the massive public resistance to the project. The province also recently rejected the Morrison copper and gold mine proposed for the shore of Morrison Lake, north of Granisle. This was done at the last minute, and only following upon intense, non-governmental and grassroots efforts by a small northwest fisheries institute to raise the alarm over potential impacts to area salmon fisheries. The province is obviously willing to respond to public concern over large-scale projects that carry with them all of the dramatic imagery that comes with oil spills, poisoned water, and barren forests. What about our air quality? When the spring air was so thick with dust that we could chew it, everybody noticed. Now that the dust has settled or blown away, we can move about under the illusion that everything is fine. But is it? The fine particulate matter that the B.C. Lung Association report talks about is not something that you necessarily smell or taste, but it does lace the air and works it way deep inside your lungs, especially as you’re breathing heavy while hiking, mountain biking, or paddling open waters. Certainly, we can’t shut down industry, and nobody is calling for that. But where chronic offenders are discovered, the message has to be sent that air quality is more important than profit. It’s too bad that poor air quality doesn’t carry with it strong visuals. We can see a huge clearcut, and we notice when salmon don’t spawn. But what visuals go with air that is slowly poisoning us?

Last Week’s Question:


As she unveiled her new cabinet, Premier Christy Clark promised a “lineby-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 now-departed 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. This mess goes back more than a century in B.C. and Canada, and has its roots in the British Parliament, where MPs and Lords had a system of claiming all sorts of expenses, including construction of a “duck house” and maintenance of the moat around an Honourable Member’s castle. 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.

Radley Beach classroom As part of a five-week environmental technician certificate program, students worked a fish net on the shores of Radley Beach recently. Local resident Wren Gilgan caught part of the action here during week three of their program, where students learned about weak electro-fishing, minnow traps, and beach seining (above). The students were working under the instruction of Darren Hebert, a registered professional biologist and teacher with the Vancouver Island Submitted photo University’s Natural Resources Extension Program.

John Rustad named to cabinet

Aboriginal affairs posting will be challenging Walter Strong

Newly re-elected Nechako Lakes member of legislative assembly John Rustad was named to a cabinet position in the Christy Clark Liberal government on June 7, 2013. His position as Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation will be a challenging one. The portfolio is expected to continue working on non-treaty benefit agreements, as well further work on longterm treaties and collaboration with First Nations in the development of natural gas and other resources. “No question, it’s an important position,” Rustad said. “I look forward to the challenges.” Rustad was sworn in on Monday. He’ll take up the details of his portfolio soon afterward. He said that it was too soon to speak

of specifics, but that the there is no doubt that natural gas development and negotiations with First Nations will be critical. “One of the big priorities in our new government is LNG [development],” said Rustad. “Relationships with First Nations are a critical part of that.” Formerly, Rustad held the position of Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. He was integral in the development of a for-

est resource management plan that swayed Hampton Affiliates in favour of rebuilding the Babine Forest Products sawmill in Burns Lake. “I’m going to be very busy with this portfolio, but forestry was my number one concern and area during the election,” Rustad said. “I represent my riding, and that’s what I’ll be doing in conjunction with the duties the premier has asked me to take on.” Lake Babine Nation Chief Wilf Adam,

recently back to fulltime duties after a brief medical leave, was supportive of the decision to appoint Rustad to cabinet. “It’s wonderful that John made it to cabinet and I am happy that he is taking on the Aboriginal Affairs ministry,” Adam said. “He will do well in that portfolio and I wish him well.” Donn Barnett, MLA for Cariboo - Chilcotin replaces Rustad as parliamentary secretary to the minister of forests, lands and natural re-

source operations and rural development.

Mayor addresses Great job to traumatic visit all the voters

Editor: In response to the letter from the Zaporozan family (June 6) I want to share a few of the things the Village of Burns Lake is doing to preserve and enhance our reputation as a great place to visit, stay and enjoy. I deeply regret the two unfortunate incidents the Zaporozans mentioned. Village staff, council and I are determined to ensure every visitor to Burns Lake has a positive experience – but there are always situations beyond our control. First of all, I want to sincerely thank the Zaporozan family for attending to the woman they saw injured until help arrived. This type of incident is the reason for our ambitious downtown revitalization plan, which aims to create a safer walking environment and a truly inviting corridor in the heart of our community. Here at the village, we also work closely with local RCMP and other first responders to ensure that emergencies are dealt with quickly and effectively. It’s unfortunate that an area resident was rude to the Zaporozans at the Francois Lake ferry. I know that we pride ourselves on being a warm, friendly and welcoming community, and we all share a common responsibility to treat every visitor – and each other – with respect and generosity. I’m glad the Zaporozans ultimately enjoyed their getaway in our region, and I hope they’ll come back again soon to enjoy everything we have to offer. Let’s make sure their next visit is a positive one that will cause them to recommend Burns Lake to their family and friends. Luke Strimbold Mayor

Editor: The voters of British Columbia can be proud of the May 14,2013 election results that saw us elect government rather than our traditional polarized politics that throws government out. To the pollsters & the NDP, the outcome showed the result of strong work ethics and the consistent message of the need for a strong economy from Christy Clark. As a long time supporter of the NDP I had to quit & proudly joined the Liberal party and worked hard to help ensure the Liberal vision for the province. I know a strong economy is needed to support services we need without raising income tax. Never assume the colour of an election sign will win an election over hard work

and a Leader that has the ability and vision to lead this Province. Now that the election is over, I hope the NDP will work with Christy Clark and collectively move this province forward for the benefit of all, rather than a special interest group that is a minority of the working class in British Columbia. As a retiree I was proud to work 30 days straight at 12 or more hours per day for no pay as the Liberals were the only party with a clear vision. Lots of other volunteers also endorsed and worked hard for our kids and grand kids. Great job to all that voted to take part of the democratic process. Someday, somebody will write a book on this historical election. Randy Holubosh Vanderhoof

‘You are my sunshine’ is a good old song

Here we are in June already and the longest day of the year is on its way, June 21. Bumper crop Looks like there will be a good hay crop so far. Back at the home place on the prairie we would be starting to get ready to hay. We were using horses and it seemed we were haying forever. With all the modern machinery it would be done in a quarter of the time. Haying was always hard on the horses in those old days. Our family was very fortunate when we arrived here in 1941 as there were still some of the well known oldtimers still in the area. Jacob Henkel and Jack Mac-

Dougal were in the gold rush of 98’. They both had some stores to tell. They were both real characters and what a life. Then there was Andy Ruddy who ran the Ford dealership in Burns Lake, I got to know him very well. Then there was Archy Witherspoon who lived in Barney Mulvaney’s cottage on Barney’s lake. While he made his home there he walked down to the Francois Lake store and post office every mail day for a cup of tea and a visit. Then last but not least was Barney Mulvaney. He was very often a visitor to our home. Here was a walking and talking history book. There were many more of the oldtimers but these four that I got to know best of all. The Lakes District is just full of wonderful people and I am very proud to feel a part of them all, this includes my town of Burns Lake. A person very new to the town asked why does the main street have so

many bends and curves and this was the answer they got. The original trail was made by Barney Mulvaney’s cows and it’s never changed, just improved. No doubt a joke. Ride for cancer The ride for cancer on bikes last weekend was a success. This run was from Burns Lake to the landing at Francois Lake. The hard work really paid off. Margaret Neave would like to thank those who took part and helped make it a successful day. Folks are very generous when it comes to giving so that maybe someday these will be a cure for cancer. Spring song As I look out my window and see spring all around this little song came to my mind. We used to sing it as kids. I wonder how many of my readers will mind. “When it’s spring time in the Rockies I’m coming back to you, little sweetheart of the mountains with your bonny eyes of blue. Once again I’ll say

I love you, while birds sing all the day. When spring time in the Rockies, in the Rockies far away.” This old song was on one of those old records on one of those old windup gramophones. We had a whole bunch of those old records, they were fun to listen too. They were 98s. They are songs by the Carter family, Gene Autry, Wilf Carter, Roy Rogers and many more. Compared to the modern players they were pretty sad but we enjoyed them just the same. I just wonder where those old records and windups got to, no doubt in someone’s attic and covered with dust. Even the music and the songs have changed but I would guess it’s history. One thing I do miss is the musical times were used to have in our growing up years. Every home had a piano, a fiddle and the every popular guitar and banjo. Accordions, harp, mouth organ and must be some more. Ev-

ery person big or little could play something and play it well. Lots of those old singers were good and they had to be as there was so such things as amps and electrical boosters, or mics so you had to be good and we were. The first time I heard the song ‘you are my sunshine’ I was in a cafe in Smithers, a lifetime ago, and I have enjoyed it ever since. In all the eating joints there would be a machine, put in 25 cents and got you a song and I think Bill Durban and I wore out ‘You are my sunshine.’ Some say we are As I was going through some old papers the other day and they were of interest to me. It was about Burns Lake. It’s located in the middle of the province, that’s something to remember. It’s the hub of such a huge area. Not only that but it has so many beautiful lakes. Most have parks on them waiting for us to enjoy. Also good roads… yes, we are so fortunate.

There have been some very serious setbacks as well but we have come out and ready to start again. It’s many years ago now but we lost both our hotel and our hall, this really was a loss. Then our last disaster the loss of the mill. This was a blow but things are starting to take shape and once more our economy will get back to normal. One thing I don’t like to see and that’s these novelty stores closing out. They are so important to a small town. Not only a layoff of staff but folks will have to go out for their needs. This will make Walmart and all these big wholesale companies smile. To me this is sad news. We sure don’t need this. If folks go out to the larger centres for a variety that they can’t get here they will no doubt do the rest of their shopping as well. Shame on you In our last paper June 5, there is a letter from a lady from Fort St. James. This is a very good letter

and it will pay everyone to take the time to ready it. They had a nasty experience but it was very good of her to bring it our attention. I will find out who the man is in our district. I hope he is ashamed of himself and by now no doubt he is. We don’t need this kind of thing to happen. To this lady who took the time to write this letter we are sorry too. So please come back again as we are a very friendly community. As for the situation that happened in Burns Lake we have no control over this, sorry to say but these things do happen. Have a safe week, traffic is getting heavy with the tourists so ease up on the gas pedal, tomorrow is another day. Something to think on from an old cowboy; live a good and honourable life then when you get older and think back you’ll enjoy it a second time. Remember God loves you and so do I.

“I write when I’m bored,” said Joseph. “I wrote about people having super-powers who go to a super-school.” Joseph said that he was excited to be included in the anthology. As for his future plans after this recent success, he said, “I’ll probably be a writer.”

What did you write about? “I wrote about the adventures of Bob and Larry in a haunted hotel in Ottawa.” Did you enjoy the process? “I liked writing it, and it felt really good to win the contest.” “I’m looking forward to the book”

Brianna Bjorgen Grade 5:

Bjorgen wrote about a magical Christmas party. “It was the day I got my dog, Bjorgen said. “I was excited to win the contest.” “I’ll start writing a bit more.”

Grade 5:

“I wrote about fairy creatures trapped by an evil witch in a dark dungeon” Writing is a regular part of George’s life. “I like to write about animals and put them into different situations.” How did you feel when you found out your story would be in the collection? “I felt happy.”

“Quest for Survival” is the story of dragon clan that runs out of food and travels to earth for sustenance. “I don’t write that often,” Bysouth said. “But I am excited to be part of the book. It makes me want to write more.”

“I wrote about a team called TechNorth that saves the world from a nuclear device on the moon.” Robinson writes very often. How did you feel about being included in the competition? “I felt happy.”

Noah’s story, “The Christmas Surprise” is a documentary about a trip to Disneyland. “It was the only story I could think of at the time,” he said of his decision to write about the trip. “I try to write as much as possible, but my friends keep me busy.” Where you surprised to find your story selected for the anthology? “I was very excited and surprised. I rushed through the last bit, so I didn’t think I would make it.”

“I wrote a story called the Power of Friendship.” “Dwarf archers team up against an evil sorcerer. Friend stand back to back defeating evil.” How did you come up with that idea? “I just thought about how friends should be.” How did you feel when you were selected? “I was shocked. When I was writing the story, I said to myself, ‘I hope I get in.”

In ‘Art in Smurfville’, Reed combined the concept of smurfs with the idea of an evil smurf who tries to destroy all artwork. “I randomly said the word ‘art’ and wrote about it,” said Reed. “I enjoyed the process. Writing is one of my favorite subjects.” “Being included in the collection encourages me to write more,” she added. Of her reaction to being chosen, Reed said, “It’s hard to explain. I was bouncing off the walls.”

Lynne Synotte (L), was joined by Becky Thompson, Barb Skillen, Bill Chapman, Garth Schienbein, and Bernice Magee to accept the cheque from Steve Gailing of LDM. Next, LDM approached the Lakes District Secondary School girls soccer team with $1000 to help them pay for their recent trip to the Rossland provincial championships, as well as other travel expenses.

Be bear smart Contributed It is the time of year when bears come out of hibernation and other wildlife become more active in British Columbia. Those animals that have become conditioned to non-natural food sources, like garbage or composts, will return to communities to help themselves. Hibernating bears cut their metabolic rates in half in order to survive long winters without eating. These bears come out of their winter sleep hungry and search for food. Other wildlife, like young cougars, travel widely to search for unoccupied territory, which can lead to increased encounters with people. These animals can also be inexperienced hunters and are more likely to seek out alternative prey. The most effective and natural way to prevent conflicts with wildlife in urban areas is to put away food attractants like garbage, birdseed, compost, pet food and fruit. Communities where attractants are managed properly have seen a decline in related human-wildlife conflicts and in the number of animals that have to be destroyed. The public is encouraged to report humanwildlife conflicts that threaten public safety or result in significant property damage by calling the Report All

Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) line, tollfree at 1 877 952- 7277 (RAPP). Quick facts: • It's important that you know what to do when you encounter wildlife like bears, cougars, coyotes and wolves in urban areas. • It's essential to remain calm and never approach the animal. • Always keep the animal in front of you (never turn your back) and back away slowly (never run). • Make yourself look as large as possible by waving your arms above your head. Make loud noises, shout at the animal in a loud, aggressive voice or bang pots and pans and throw objects, like rocks and sticks.

• If possible, bring children and pets indoors. • The Conservation Officer Service is the primary responder to human- wildlife conflicts where there is a risk to public safety, conservation concerns or where significant property damage has occurred. • In 2012-13, the Conservation Officer Service received 25,184 calls regarding humanwildlife conflicts. Of those calls, 15,833 involved human-bear conflicts. Over the past five years in B.C., an average of 600 black bears have been destroyed each year, while 93 have been relocated due to conflicts with people.

Imperial Metals owns 50 per cent of Huckleberry Mines Ltd. The other 50 per cent of the mine is owned by a consortium of Japanese interests. On May 1, 2013, WFN issued a ‘stop work’ order against Huckleberry Mines Ltd. to highlight their grievances regarding employment and other financial opportunities. “We have a clear mandate from our membership to stop this project until our concerns are addressed,” Ogen said at the time. “We have been in negotiations for more than a year and Huckleberry Mines does not wish to conclude agreements that fairly and reasonably address Wet’suwet’en asserted aboriginal rights, title, community interests and concerns.”

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, just when things seem hopeless, a small ray of light shines through and you find a solution to your problem. Scorpio has some wise words, so listen up. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, once you think you have all of the answers, something pops up to make you reassess a situation. It could take a few days for you to find the answer you’re looking for. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you may have fun in the sun on your mind, but others are urging you to buckle down and focus on some tasks that need to get wrapped up before you leave. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 There are some changes coming at work, Virgo. You just don’t know if they will be to your advantage or be something that could tilt you off your axis.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you are not one to let an obstacle block you from your goal. Rethink your strategy and you will soon find yourself back on the path to success. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, changes at home are in store and you may be feeling both excited and anxious at the same time. This is perfectly understandable as you await the news.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 You could be feeling under the weather this week, Aries. Even if your to-do list is a mile long, you need to take some time to recuperate before getting back to business. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Life experience is your advantage, Taurus. When your company is looking to fill a position, they will most likely hire from within. Make the most of this opportunity.

“Metadata” Surveillance

Computer Repairs, Sales & Training

Hwy 16, Burns Lake Open 9am-6pm Mon.-Fri., 12pm-4pm on Sat.

Phone: 250-692-7773


Metadata may seem like a relatively new term, but it has actually been around for quite some time now. Simply put, metadata is data about data. For instance, there’s a lot more to know about an email than just its content. Important metadata would include where the email came from, where it went, when it was sent, and the frequency of communication between the two (or more) parties. Though it is illegal for Western intelligence agencies to spy on their own citizens without judicial approval, somewhat anonymous metadata is currently being “mined” or collected by intelligence services such as the US National Security Agency (NSA) and Canada’s own Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) for counter-terrorism purposes. Though these agencies are adamant that they are collecting merely the metadata, not the content, of phone calls, email messages & Internet traffic, there is great concern as to whether these activities are sacrificing the personal privacy of law abiding citizens in the name of national security.

Oz the Great good

Doc Hollywood

John Patrick There are few films as sacred as ‘The Wizard of Oz’. So if you're going to tamper with that beloved classic, you'd better have something of a Wizard behind the camera. ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’, a prequel to the 1939 classic, has director Sam Raimi. Against all odds, the man behind the ‘Evil Dead’ and ‘Spiderman’ series delivers a film that has the brains, courage and, especially, heart to stand alongside its predecessor. His comfort with big budgets and special effects comes in handy here as well. The script, based on the L. Frank Baum books, is basically an origin story for The Wizard. In a playful opening sequence, set in 1905 Kansas and filmed (naturally) in black and white, we meet Oscar Diggs, a carnival magician and all around con man. James Franco inhabits the role almost solely based on his ability to be harmlessly sleazy. Oscar, or ‘Oz’, as he's called, is something of a ladies man who runs afoul of the carnival's strongman, sending him on a madcap escape via a hot-air balloon. No sooner does he take off than he's swept up on a tornado that, you guessed it, lands him in the merry ol' land of Oz. Once Oz lands, he immediately becomes the focus of a prophecy and a trio of witches (of varying degrees of goodness). Rachel Weisz and Mila Kuniz, as Evanora and Theadora respectfully, do justice to their roles, but Michelle Williams

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

is absolutely (and appropriately) radiant as Glinda. The film is largely about Oz's quest to defeat the wicked witch and restore peace to the land. Along the way, the smart script tips its hat well to the original without trampling on it; the black-and-white, the tornados, the yellow brick road, scarecrows, lions, and so on. It all adds an element of comfort to the story. In the end, as you might imagine, the story wraps up nicely and actually makes you want to watch the original again, which might be the film's greatest feat. Yes, it's far too effects-heavy, but then so was the original, in its time, and yes, Mr. Franco is nearly impossible to take seriously. But this ‘Oz’, while not exactly powerful, is pretty great. It may not have much at stake, but it's got a ton of heart. “Oz, the Great and Powerful” is out on DVD/Blu-ray now.

Conquer Cancer campaign exceeds goals

Roxie Rollers roll on Walter Strong Last week’s Ride to Conquer Cancer in Burns Lake raised over $2000. Approximately 25 riders participated in the event organized by Roxie Harms, Burns Lake native and cousin of the late Marlene Feldmann. The weekend ride in Burns Lake was part of a larger campaign by the Roxi Rollers 2013 Ride to Conquer Cancer benefitting the B.C. Cancer Foundation. Derek Feldmann, Marlene’s husband, and Roxie Rollers team member, took a moment to talk about how important raising awareness around early cancer detection really is. Marlene was only 46 when she died of colon cancer, a form of the disease that usually strikes men and at a later age. “It was 18 months from diagnosis to the end,” recalled Derek. “By the time it was found it was already in stage four. It had metastasized already.” For Derek, the importance of early detection can’t be emphasized enough. He and Marlene were always active in efforts to raise money in support of cancer research. “Marlene and I always did the Terry Fox run for years and years, never realizing how close to home it would hit,” he said. “This community, and the North in general, is absolutely amazing in the amount of money they will put out for cancer research.” A fund at the Vanderhoof hospital cancer clinic has also been established - the Marlene Feldman Help Fund for the Vanderhoof Ruby Ellen Van Andel Community Cancer Service. One of the ways Derek helps raise money for that fund is through a donation tin at his regular kid’s picnics at his farm just east of Burns Lake. “I’ve got critters and a playground,” said Derek. “I invite parents with kids out so they can see the animals and use the play-

It’s a kid-centred thing.” The money raised in last weekend’s out and back ride from Burns Lake to Francois Lake was the result of proceeds from a garage sale and a special pulled-pork sandwich lunch at the Wagon Wheel Drive-in across from the ferry, as well as from a spaghetti dinner held later that evening at the Grapevine Pub and Bistro in Burns Lake. So far, the Roxie Rollers have raised almost $40,000. They set out with the goal of raising $27,500. “It’s absolutely amazing how supportive this community is,” said Derek.

Homes for pooches

longboarding for a cure James Osmond made his way through Burns Lake on June 3, 2013 as part of his crossCanada longboard adventure to raise awareness and funds towards prostate cancer research. The Big Push to Prevent Prostate Cancer is affiliated with the Canadian Cancer Society. Osmond, from Barrie Ontario, lost his grandfather to a prostate cancer that he feels might have been avoidable through earlier detection. His campaign can be followed on Facebook. Search for The Big Push to Prevent Prostate Cancer.

Students from the Granisle Babine Elementary School helped build dog houses in Burns Lake on June 3, 2013 as part of the 2013 pet spay and neuter campaign. The students took two of the dog houses back to Granisle where a contest will be held to select two winners of the new homes. The campaign moved on to Kitwanga later in the week to build several more homes.

Tweedsmuir Cavaliers riding strong Contributed The first Tweedsmuir Cavaliers Saddle Club (TCSC) gymkhana of the year was held at Liz Kemppainen’s May 11, 2013. Fourteen riders entered the various events (keyhole, scud s ho, scurry, polebending, and barrels) in three divisions (over 14, 14 and under, and leadline) to try for the fastest time of the day. The most challenging class of the day was the TC Special, which had seven no times until the very last rider, Jessica, managed to get a time and win the jackpot. The next gymkhana will be held July 21. There will be three gymkhanas this year for our riders to qualify for the Northwest Invitational Championship Gymkhana being hosted in Fraser Lake on Sept. 14, 2013. The next TCSC event will be the schooling show & clinic, set for June 15 & 16 at the TCSC grounds. This schooling show offers lots of one-on-one help from the judge and features an English day and a western day. More information on the TCSC and its events can be found on the web at www.tcsaddleclub.webs. com and on Facebook, or by
