Relay scores home run Cancer survivors Jimmy Motter and Viola Rutherford walk the Victory Lap in Saturday’s Relay For Life that raised $150,090 for the Canadian Cancer Society, despite being down three teams and 74 participants over last year. “Considering that, we smashed it out of the park, we beat them all,” said thrilled co-ordinator Jen Dies. She offered grateful thanks to volunteer leadership co-ordinator Sheryl Anderson and her team, sponsors, entertainers, the Elks who accommodated the event and the community that topped Kelowna’s $86,000 and Vernon’s $88,000 totals. Dies is confident the Salmon Arm Relay for Life will meet its $160,000 goal. For more images of the event, see A12. Jessica KlymchuK/OBSeRveR

Smoking bylaw honours activist

Park ban: Council names legislation after longtime anti-tobacco crusader Dan MacQuarrie. By lachlan labere OBSeRveR STAFF

A Salmon Arm resident and longtime, outspoken anti-tobacco activist will be recognized in a new bylaw to ban smoking in city parks. On Monday evening, a public hearing was held in city council chambers for the proposed Parks Regulation Amendment Bylaw that would see smoking prohibited in all municipal parks and public areas including the Ross Street Plaza, Canoe Beach, the Turner Creek Trail and the Mt. Ida Cemetery. Dan MacQuarrie was one of the few to turn out for the hearing, though he kept quiet, despite having spent more than three decades working towards such a bylaw in

Salmon Arm and elsewhere in the province. With no one speaking for or against the bylaw, the hearing ended quickly. Mayor Nancy Cooper then suggested an amendment, that the bylaw be named after MacQuarrie. “This smoking bylaw has been the work of one Mr. Dan MacQuarrie, and he has actually been working on smoking bylaws for 38 years, or non-smoking bylaws, and so I am just asking council if they would add Dan’s name to this so it would be kind of like… Dan’s Bylaw,” said Cooper. Couns. Debbie Cannon and Marg Kentel expressed their respect and appreciation for all the work MacQuarrie has done, but were reluctant to see the city set a

precedent by naming a bylaw after someone. “My mother-in-law said to me Dan MacQuarrie was working on that when he was on council. He was very visionary, because he wanted the no-smoking in public areas,” Cannon commented. “And I totally support your work that you’ve done, and that you’ve stuck with this for 38 years, Dan. But for me, I can’t support naming a bylaw, attaching someone’s name to it, just because I think that opens up a can of worms for other things.” With respect to Cannon’s position, Coun.

City to purchase land for intersection By lachlan labere observer sTAFF

What may be an awkward investment for some, represents a strategic purchase for the City of salmon Arm. Municipal council has given three readings to three motions related to purchasing property at 921 17th street sW – the narrow lot between the TransCanada Highway and 17th, across from buckerfield’s. one of the motions approved is for the short-term borrowing of $300,000, to go towards the total pur-

chase cost of $360,000. The remaining $60,000 would come from a reserve account. City administrator Carl bannister said the property is critical for the future construction of an intersection with traffic lights at the TCH and 20th street sW. The purchase will also help with the planned closure of 17th, and deal with a city storm sewer trespass issue. “And finally, we’re considering multiple options on the remainder of the property, including the potential

for community signage, potential for a tourism kiosk or rv pullout, and potential for resale of the remainder after this intersection is constructed, which is likely going to be a number of years into the future,” said bannister. Coun. Alan Harrison said the intersection with signals would improve traffic flow, and that he thought there’s a good chance the city would be able to recoup the purchase cost through the possible resale of portions of the property.

Name makes bylaw memorable Continued from front rie, stating it would add a little pizzazz to the bylaw. “I think it will maybe help catch the community’s interest and understanding of the bylaw,” said Harrison. “I understand Mr. MacQuarrie is all right with having his name attached to it. so that’s important. I don’t really have a problem. Most of our bylaws aren’t that attractive so most people probably won’t want their names on them.”

Coun. Ken Jamieson was of similar mind, stating he didn’t think anyone would be disgruntled about not having their names attached to bylaws or initiatives they’ve supported. After the amendment passed, council gave third reading to the bylaw. Harrison referred to two letters received by the city as the only opposition he had heard to the bylaw. but he said the writers may not have been clear on the bylaw’s intent, that it isn’t just about eliminating cigarette butts.

“In my mind, the biggest reason for this is so that we don’t have to breathe in second-hand smoke when we’re doing recreational activities,” said Harrison. Jamieson said the bylaw isn’t about tramping on people’s rights, and that there is “going to be ample room for everybody to enjoy the type of air they want to breathe.” Council also gave third reading to a related ticketing bylaw. Those caught smoking in a park or public place may be fined $100.

July 1 fireworks back in Sicamous

By lachlan labere


observer sTAFF

Compromise seems to have quelled the public furor over sicamous council’s 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. 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 event in August. There are no fireworks held in salmon Arm on Canada Day, so many residents travel to sicamous or blind bay.

Beat rCMP have arrested an 18-year-old for dealing methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine in a so-called “dial-a-dope” operation. Charges of trafficking in a controlled substance are pending against the woman, who is from salmon Arm. Members of the salmon Arm general

investigation section made the arrest and the woman was found to be in possession of the three illegal narcotics. Following the arrest, rCMP subsequently obtained a warrant under the Controlled Drugs and substances Act and searched a residence in relation to the drug trafficking operation. That matter remains under investigation.

Flag person deliberately bumped by angry driver By Tracy Hughes OBSERVER STAFF

A flag person working on the TransCanada Highway is bruised and shaken after she was deliberately bumped by an angry driver Wednesday. The driver is now facing charges under the Motor Vehicle Act and police continue to investigate the matter. “It appears the traffic control person had vehicles stopped to allow a dump truck to exit when they noted a male waiting to be waved through was on a cell phone. The male was advised that he would have to get off the cell phone before being allowed to pass,” said Sgt. Carlos Tettolowski, of the Salmon Arm RCMP. Tettowlowski says the male driver then moved forward slowly and bumped the traffic control person with his vehicle. The traffic control person moved back away from the vehicle and the driver again moved forward slowly and bumped the flag person again. The owner of the traffic control firm, Alliance Traffic Group, says the incident is serious but reflects the underlying problem of a lack of respect and common courtesy from drivers towards traffic workers.

Doing the job: Flagger Allison Morris of Salmon Arm works for Alliance Traffic Group, helping to ensure traffic safety near the SmartCentres development in the west end of the city. “Our workers put their lives on the line, staring down semis and other vehicles and they are there not to cause people an inconvenience but to help protect their safety and the safety of everyone working or driving in the area,” said John Thuot, an Alliance Traffic Group owner. Thuot says crews will be working along the Trans-Canada as the development for SmartCentres and its associated highway improvements are constructed until at least October. “Drivers need to be aware this will be impacting travel and treat the directions of flag people with respect.” Thuot says the most

recent incident with the flagger being bumped by a vehicle is one of the more serious, but not the first incident at this job site. “People are frustrated, they lose patience and they take it out on the traffic control person — the very person who is out to protect them from harm. My workers have been sworn at, had things thrown out windows at them, it’s a really challenging site.” Disobeying the directions of flag persons can also come with financial consequences. Flag people are given the same authority to direct traffic as police and there can be significant fines for noncompliance.

Thuot appeals to drivers to be calm. “A smile goes a long way. It’s about basic kindness. These are people out there working in some pretty tough conditions and they are just trying to do their job.”

for what it’S worth

Events show civic spirit It was such a busy weekend filled with so many tremendous accomplishments by so many residents, I’m looking forward to sharing some of the appreciation in this column. But, as with life with the bouquets also come brickbats, so I’m going to get mine out first. I’d like to send a personal boo to the man who appears to have forgotten all his manners and common sense by deliberately bumping a traffic control worker, not once, but twice with his car last week. The man was illegally talking on his cell phone while driving and the flag person directed him to get off his cell phone before resuming his travel. The man then apparently was so incensed that he not only hurled verbal abuse, but decided to use his car as a weapon. The worker ended up bruised, but otherwise physically unhurt. The RCMP were called in and Motor Vehicle Act charges are pending, but in my mind this man deserves a criminal charge. Pushing her with his car is just as bad as using his fists, which would be considered an assault. Sometimes I wonder what it is about driving that can make so many people forget their common sense and simple good manners? It seems like people get in their cars and all that matters is getting where they need to go as fast as humanly possible and courtesy and even safety go out the window. So this construction season, try ensure you’re not one of those boneheads. Instead, take a deep breath and offer the flag person a wave or a smile. These people are there to do a job, they want to do it safely and ultimately they are there to help keep everyone safe. Now on to the cheerful part of this column. I’m probably preaching to the choir when I say how amazingly generous and caring the people of Salmon Arm can be. This community has long been a huge supporter of the Relay For Life event, which benefits the Canadian Cancer Society. It is practically tradition that our small city bests our bigger neighbours including Kelowna and Kamloops in fundraising. This year was no exception. Even before our relay started Saturday evening, the money Salmon Arm raised exceeded the total of Kamloops’ event, which took place the weekend before. Of course there are too many people to thank, but if you participated or donated, good on you. Another event, now only in its second year also deserves a special mention in my mind. The iLearn Street event, hosted by the Shuswap Eagles Pathfinders Club, saw a huge and diverse range of organizations take part in educational and fun booths for kids. The event was designed to appeal to kids aged seven to 14, a group which often gets a bit overlooked. Kids had to complete learning stations on topics like nutrition, languages, fire safety, money management, and many more in order to earn their way to excellent prizes or the chance to bungee on a trampoline, climb a rock wall or take a hot air balloon ride. It was a class-A event, and completely free for participants. Huge kudos to all those involved in putting this on, it was terrific.

Time to fix municipal funding Municipal politicians from across the country flooded into Vancouver over the 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. Municipalities 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. According to a report released at the convention, the current relationship between municipal and federal levels of government is “dysfunctional.” It cites the fact that despite their evolving and expanding responsibilities, municipalities only receive eight cents of every tax dollar raised. 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

Politicians’ expense Preserve access to the lake clean-up must continue BC VIEWS

Tom Fletcher 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 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.

Hooray! On behalf of all the nature and beach lovers in the Shuswap, I’d like to give a big thanks to the CSRD for their plan to restore our shoreline. Aside from the reasons already covered, there’s one reason that hasn’t seemed to have been mentioned so far. For so long, we have been denied access to public lands by those who have unjustly claimed the lakeshore for

themselves, either by putting docks and other things on the beach to suggest it’s privately owned – or, in some cases, blatantly putting up barbed wire fences and threatening anyone who even approaches the shoreline by water let alone by road. It seems logical that opening up miles and miles of crown-owned shoreline will only increase tourist satis-

faction of our area.   Land owners across the road can enjoy the beach along with the rest of us, except they should no longer be permitted to exclude others. If this causes resentment, they should take a visit to the town of Peachland and see how managing lake access should be done so all can enjoy what is their right. Joanne Dyck

Shopping grass always greener We’ve all heard the lament of the lack of shopping in Salmon Arm. Well, we are not alone. I was speaking the other day to a professional who lives and works in Vernon, and she asked, “How is the local economy in Salmon Arm?” I replied that we are in a time of change, awaiting the arrival of new retail stores and so many folk. Her next comment floored me. It was, “Yes,

it’s the same thing in Vernon. Everyone goes to Kelowna to do their shopping. “As well, many of the downtown stores are now closed on Mondays. And, if you want to eat out on a Monday, you will find many of the restaurants are now closed on Mondays – and those who were open for three meals a day are now only open for two.” The bottom line … we are

not alone in our lament of out-of-town shoppers. Perhaps it’s all about “the grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence.” Perhaps our residents (and council) need to explore their own community. Where we shop ensures local employment and allows families to thrive. Our future is reliant on our own support. Margaret Davidson

Canadians sick and tired of the Senate Many Canadians, including myself, have been asking for the abolishment of the very costly, appointed, ineffective senate for years with no results. Canadians have also been asking our MPs for a complete review and possible changes to our entire parliamentary system of government and the end of

costly ineffective policies such as official bilingualism, equalization payments but also with no results. This lack of effort for decades by Ottawa to achieve changes has created the possible threat of separation by Western Canadian provinces and territories to form a new country, possibly a Republic of Western Canada with

a truly democratic and accountable system of government, but no one in Ottawa was listening. I’m not a supporter of the policies of the New Democratic Party, but their motion to abolish the Senate is good motion for the majority of Canadians. Ken Kellington

Just how local is local food?

Change: New definition means local food can come from Alberta.

By Martha Wickett

whole concept of local is catching on.” He said Askew’s has already been doing more labelling of its local products. “A lot of our customers are certainly interested in where things are grown and where they’re produced.”


The shiny red tomato might be branded with a ‘local’ sticker, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it was grown anywhere near where you live. In fact, it might have come from Alberta – or, perhaps, Fort St. John. With a new definition put forward in May by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the word ‘local’ has expanded its horizons. Under its previous policy, the CFIA interpreted the terms ‘local,’ ‘locally grown,’ or any similar term to mean that: the food originated within a 50-kilometre radius of the place where it was sold or, the food sold originated within the same municipality or adjacent government unit. In CFIA’s new interim policy, ‘local’ expands to: food produced in the province or territory in which it is sold, or food sold across provincial borders within 50 kilometres of the originating province or territory. The expanded definition of local is not being embraced by all. Jen Gamble with Shuswap Food Action, an organization that promotes a sustainable local food system, said it makes no sense to her. “It’s almost a move that makes the word ‘local’ mean less. It also points to the fact consumers have to be more educated about what they’re buying.” She said Shuswap Food Action has always worked on the general rule that a 45-minute drive from your home is local to you. This new policy, she says, adds to the confusion for consumers and doesn’t serve the small producers. She said consumers shopping in bigger retail chains, in particular, may want to buy local, but don’t have time to do the research. She said if she was going to speculate

Confusion: Jen Gamble, with Shuswap Food Acton, says CFIA’s definition of local makes no sense to her and will make grocery shopping more difficult for people. on the reason for the change, it could be that the bigger interests are seeing ‘local’ as a valuable word. Or, perhaps, the new definition cuts down on the CFIA’s enforcement expenses. Gamble urges people to contact CFIA, which states it will be consulting with consumers and industry on this and other labelling issues. “One thing that I could potentially see as a benefit is it might spur on local groups to create local brands and increase activity of local producers within the region. It might make them mad enough to take some action.” She adds that Shuswap residents are good at supporting local growers. “I’m not sure this will change that. If anything, I would hope this will be a wake-up call to more residents and it will actually get better.” At DeMille’s Farm Market, owner Brad DeMille said he thinks the new definition makes ‘local’ meaningless. To him, he says, he considers that local goes about as far as Vernon. DeMille’s already does some site-specific labelling, he said, which he’ll increase now so that

customers know more about which town and which farm has produced the food. He said a lobby group of the large producers could certainly be pressuring the CFIA to change the rules. In response to questions from the Observer, a CFIA spokesperson provided reasons for the change in an email: “In Canada, food production and distribution has become increasingly large-scale and centralized. The previous policy was considered by some as too restrictive considering that many consumers now live in cities that are quite a distance from farmland. Their view of what they consider ‘local’ food is now broader,” wrote

Elena Koutsavakis. “The CFIA wants to strike the right balance for industry and consumers. As a result, the CFIA has chosen to adopt an interim policy that provides sufficient flexibility to industry while enabling consumers to make an informed choice.” David Askew, owner of Askew’s Foods, said his store considers the Shuswap/Thompson/ Okanagan valleys as local. He finds the new CFIA definition so broad that it dilutes the concept. “It seems to me it’s kind of driven by the bigger chains who want to be able to say stuff is local. A narrower definition of local is more difficult for them. To me it indicates the

Kyllo bypassed for cabinet post B.C. politics: Rookie MLA named secretary for BC Jobs Plan.


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 swearingin 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 busi-

Horoscope ARIES (March 21-April 19): It was harder than ever for you to keep up with life’s demands. You felt that in order to maintain the status quo you had to deliver more of your abilities, which were not always on hand. This week you will regain the strength and the emotional security that you once thought as lost. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Life threw you some curveballs where you have least expected. Wait no longer as you are about to get lots of help from individuals you partner up with. You are given another huge opportunity to redefine your goals in life and to regain self-confidence about your future. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are the lead actor in this week’s stellar play. So much energy is directed at you right now while giving you the chance to show your true potentials and talents. You will get to play a new role in your life which is based on solid values. Keep on shining! CANCER (June 21-July 22): A part of you operates behind the scenes and part of you is actively engaged into the world. The universe will help you strengthen your desire to be unique and independent from life’s limitations. That bite into life’s forbidden fruit is just so mouth-watering. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): At times you felt ripped apart from your usual circle. The feeling of belonging to a certain entity wasn’t that obvious. You will start feeling that void filled out by your own efforts. You will realize that you don’t need anyone’s approval in order to succeed in your own endeavours. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have a voice and a presence that no one can ignore. Validation comes through special connections you have built thus far. Improve your skills and you will defeat your competition. Fans are beginning to show appreciation for your personal involvement in a group.



LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Despite the fluctuations in your personal relationships, you aim to balance the energy surrounding your future goals. This week you are starting to see that your family values and your work life can coexist thus making it easier for you to maintain your status quo. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Everyday tasks and requirements have been quite handy for you lately. Your everyday routine seemed to be constantly interrupted by unusual circumstances. This uneven energy will be waived off by exploring your unique talents. Dare to live in the moment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Lifelong commitments have been more important to you lately. You don’t take anything or anyone at face value. This is why you show greater appreciation for the things that contribute to your wellness and which give you a better understanding of your psyche. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You find yourself in an amazing position right now. The universe is bestowing you with so much needed support that you will feel like a renewed conqueror. You will see fruitful results with those you come into contact with. Agreements are in your favour. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your ideas might have been tested at times which made you prove yourself more than once of your righteousness. Morality and justice play an important role in your life and you cannot function suitably unless these are fulfilled. Your achievements speak from themselves. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Personal commitments have set an unstable vibe to your life. Resources were scarce and you had to fight hard for them. In light of these ambiguous matters, new romance makes you suddenly forget about your problems. You find your usual tempo through personal liberation.

Relay for Life


One Saturday afternoon, eight of the first-year Salmon Arm Company of the Girls’ Life Brigade, in the uniform of Miss Canada Girls, sold war savings stamps in the local stores and the post office. The sum of $142.50 was realized. The proceeds of this monthlong drive were to be used to supply four depth charges for the Royal Canadian Navy. Frank Farmer officially took over control of the Front Street Grocery from Ed Port. Miss Irene Chamber formerly of the Tappen Store, was to be store manager. Everard Clark, Vernon area supervisor of the Dominion-Provincial Emergency Farm Labor Service, outlined the seriousness of the farm labor problem. He said, in his speech at the annual meeting of the Association Boards of Trade of the Southern Interior, that there would be a famine in Canada if this season’s crops were not harvested.


It was decided that Salmon Arm’s drive-in theatre, under construction at the Larch Hill corner would be operated by the community association. The theatre would be completed and operated by C.R. Hayter.

An increase in the price of milk in Salmon Arm and Okanagan areas was to come in the near future. A boost of one cent a quart was expected. The local price was 25 cents per quart in the stores and for home delivery. The last price increase of two cents had taken place seven years previously, in 1956. A total of 6,600 boxes of strawberries were shipped from this area in 1963.

Mayes unconcerned by PMO monitoring By Martha Wickett OBSERVER STAFF

North OkanaganShuswap MP Colin Mayes won’t be delving further into why he is one of 65 backbench MPs who the Privy Council Office has been monitoring since April 2011. “I really have not forcefully pursued this issue, but it is my understanding that the PMO does track comments in the media by Members of the House of Commons as a resource rather than for vetting or disciplinary review,” he wrote in an email to the Observer. In an earlier interview when the monitoring first came to light, he said he would be checking into it when he returned to Ottawa.

than 400 search terms Cision Canada Inc. was contracted to monitor. At the time, Mayes said he’s not bothered by being watched.  “The public is always monitoring me.

There are people out there who maybe don’t agree or who are critical, sometimes looking for me at my weakest point. It doesn’t bother me at all. It you don’t like conflict and don’t

want to live in a glass room, then don’t run for politics.” The issue also came up recently as Edmonton MP Brent Rathgeber has left the Conservative caucus to

sit as an independent, saying that administration isn’t transparent enough and tells backbenchers what to do. “I don’t feel I’ve been compromised,” said Mayes.

“Any time there’s an issue of concern for my constituents, I get access to a minister.” Mayes says he also recently voted against most of the Conservative caucus on giving

provinces the authority to sanction extreme fighting and there were no repercussions. -With files from Richard Rolke, Vernon Morning Star

for 6 months in a bundle.‡ “Why I was one of the chosen to be on the list could be to see what is important to members regionally, or to resource messaging styles on issues that matter to Canadians,” he wrote on June 1. Mayes added that during seven years as an MP, “I have only had two calls from the PMO referring to comments I have said.” The monitoring came to light from a Liberal MP’s access to information request. It showed that federal government expenditures on media monitoring, government-wide, between April 1, 2011 and March 20, 2013 cost $23 million. The Privy Council Office spent $2.4 million, which included keeping an eye on the 65 MPs. Mayes (misspelled as Colin ‘Mays’) was listed as one of more

Traditional or original, find the perfect gift! Whether you choose a traditional Father’s Day gift or a more original gift, it is important that your gift suit your father’s tastes as much as possible. Staying traditional is sometimes the best way to please someone who is set in his ways. If this resembles your dad, the men’s clothing department is sure to have something that will suit his personality. For example, a designer tie or a nice shirt is perfect for a father who enjoys men’s

fashions. The hardware store is another indisputable source of gift ideas for Father’s Day; it offers you an opportunity to complete your father’s tool collection, and show him that you are aware of his tastes and needs. For those who want to offer a more personal gift this Father’s Day, there are plenty of original gift ideas. While your gift is meant to please your father and prove your affection, it should suit his personality. For example, you can

offer a good bottle of wine to be shared with the family meal. You can also invite him to a fine restaurant in a friendly atmosphere — somewhere that is out of the ordinary.

If your father enjoys sports, take advantage of this occasion to offer him a special outing that is rich in strong sensations. For example, he might enjoy the chance to drive a racecar around

Being a father today is quite a challenge! Fathers and fatherhood have become a particularly frequent topic of conversation in modern western society. It is a popular subject for researchers and professionals in various sectors such as health, education, social services, and justice, for public decision-makers, the media, and even for fathers and mothers themselves. The role of fathers has become the subject of a debate that is entirely unprecedented in the history of our society. In fact, today we seem to be questioning fatherhood somewhat like we questioned motherhood at the beginning of the 20th century: the father’s status and social role are now under scrutiny! Being a father today means playing a role in society that is overrun with legal, moral, ethical, emotional, and psychological requirements and responsibilities. For example, it is no longer just the social success of their child that sets the requirements and responsibilities that confront today’s fathers, it is also the welfare and universal development of all children. Being a father is being in a direct, precocious, and continuous rela-

tionship with one or more children. Being a father also means being in a relationship with the other adults who are directly responsible for the child; it means establishing partnerships with the child’s moth-

er, educator, teacher, doctor, and others. In short, being a father today is quite a challenge, and it should be recognized this June 17 on Father’s Day. Let’s pay homage to these men of every age who

An involved father, a happy child

What better time than Father’s Day to celebrate fathers’ involvement with their children? Does your father bless you, or did he bless you, with his engaged presence, his affection, and his support? Take the time to thank him. Just the opposite, your father was more absent, delegating this aspect of the relationship to your mother? Perhaps Father’s Day is a good opportunity to express your need to know him and to spend more time with him. Studies increas-


ingly demonstrate that a father’s involvement promotes the full development of the child, whether the couple is living together or apart. If the importance of the mother goes without saying, the father’s role has been underestimated for far too long. In fact, his involvement should start from birth, even though it’s never too late to initiate a closeness between a father and his children. It’s by tending to the baby’s needs, through games, cooing, or

rocking comfortingly, that an invisible but very strong bond is created between the newborn and the man who will become his role model and his security. From this privileged relationship, children will, among other things,

learn self-confidence and autonomy, develop their identities as a men and women, and perfect their cognitive abilities and social skills. Thank you to all involved fathers for those precious gifts!

Human services workers, a college finance and accounting teacher and other interested participants added their input, which the students plan to consider – including what kind of advocacy group they wish to form. As with most start-up groups, one of the main issues facing the students is money – where and how to get it. The course ends June 17, but students plan to keep in touch over the summer with a goal to form their group by September.

Sockeyes make a splash on Coast The Salmon Arm Sockeyes left the Coast in their wake June 2, returning from the annual Coquitlam weekend swim meet. The Sockeyes sent seven swimmers who all swam well. Salmon Arm’s Chantel Jeffery dominated the meet, smashing records in the 100-m individual medley, the 50-m freestyle, the 50-m butterfly, the 50-m backstroke and 100m freestyle. Tricia Fair took down the 50-m freestyle record, and swam her way to a best time in 100-m butterfly. Claire Hall competed in her first 200-m IM and took home many personal bests. Great performances by E-J Kitchen, who swam a best time in her 50-m butterfly. Julianne Moore rocked her swims, earning her many best times and great results in all her swims. Scuba Steven Moore swam close to his best times and ranked phenomenally as did his brother Eric Moore, who took home a best time in the 50 free. The Sockeyes put in a fantastic performance overall and are suiting up for a spectacular season.

Catching Delta’s attention Adam New’s skill at lacrosse has not gone unnoticed. At 16, he has been signed by the Armstrong Shamrocks’ Junior B Lacrosse Team, which consists of 16to 20-year-olds, and he plans to head to the Lower Mainland next year to play. In his 11th year of lacrosse, New was noticed when his Shuswap Outlaws midget team took gold in the Provincials last year. The Delta organization invited him down for a conditioning camp. Although most of the 60 or so players there had been trying out and training for about a month, New attended for just a weekend over spring break. However, he made his presence known, playing well and scoring two goals in one game. He has been offered

a spot with Delta’s Intermediate A team, so he hopes to move to Delta for the second semester of Grade 12, where he will live with relatives and play with the team. Asked how he feels about the opportunity, he smiles and says: “Good, happy, excited.” New also plays hockey, which he will probably play again next season. As for lacrosse, he says he likes the thinking involved as well as the physical part of the game. His plans at this point are “for a year I will play intermediate with Delta. I might play Junior A if they ask me. Sometimes they might call you up during the intermediate season.” And his long-term goal?

pHoto contributed

Moving on: Adam New, who is currently playing lacrosse with the Armstrong Shamrocks, will head to Delta next year. “NLL (National Lacrosse League), I guess,” he grins. “Go pro. You’re making next to nothing a year but it’s fun.”

Adam’s mom Patti says his family is really proud of him and the success he’s achieved in a sport which several of his relatives have

played. “He’s carrying on the family tradition. My dad, my brothers, Adam’s cousin,” she says.

Outlaws claim third tourney win The Shuswap Outlaws Midget Lacrosse team was in Penticton this weekend for the annual Barn Burner Midget B Tournament. Shuswap started out pool play on Friday evening with a 3-3 draw against the North Delta Hawks. On Saturday, the Outlaws scored wins over Port Moody 9-3 and the Coquitlam Adanacs 8-5. They entered the playoff round as the second-seeded team. In the tournament semifinal, Shuswap met up with North Delta again. The Outlaws used tight defence and timely scoring to defeat the Hawks 7-3 and advance to the gold medal game.   In the tournament final, Shuswap met up

with the Prince George Posse who were seeded first entering the playoff round. The first two periods were tight but Shuswap showed their team depth and pulled away with four third-period goals to record a 10-5 win. The result gave the Outlaws their third tournament victory of the season. With the playdowns for the BC Provincials approaching, coach Steve Sagh was optimistic. “If we play that way in the provincial playdowns we should be all right.” The Outlaws finish their TOMLA season this week with games against North OK and Kamloops.

Heading for victory: Mason McCune attempts to block the shot from Port Moody during the Shuswap Outlaws’ 9-3 win.

erything was a bit uncertain. The tournament started off with a roundrobin format, where the Broncos won one and lost three games, ending up in the consolation round. However, then they went on to beat three teams, coming first on the consolation side. “Every kid either scored a touchdown or threw a touchdown pass, so that’s pretty cool,” said Neid. “This year we knocked on the door, next year we knock it down.”

Hook the big one Sunday Come Sunday morning there will be hundreds of people down at the end of the wharf at Marine Park. They will be taking part in the 17th Annual Salmon Arm Kid’s Fishing Derby. A popular item on the community calendar, the derby is open to children 12 years and under. There is no cost to enter the derby that is hosted by City of Salmon Arm Leisure Services. Registration takes place Sunday morning, June 16, beginning at 6 a.m. at the end of the wharf. The only restrictions are that each child must be accompanied by an adult and must wear a life-jacket or PFD. Six certified lifeguards are on duty throughout the event. Some life-jackets are available for children who do not have one. Only coarse fish are eligible for trophies and prizes and fish must be caught and reeled in by the child, but an adult may assist in netting a fish. An awards ceremony will take place immediately following the derby, with trophies and major prizes handed out. The winner of the derby will receive the

From her heart and soul A familiar face in the Salmon Arm business, community, Melanie Hart has a secret she will share this Sunday in a concert at the Salmar Classic Theatre. As well as a varied business life, Hart has been on a musical journey that includes national and international TV appearances, an appearance at an international Opera House on the Black Sea, speaking and singing tours to places as diverse as Parliament Hill, international prisons and homeless shelters. Employed in a bank where an executive told her she has “one of the coolest resumes,” Hart embarked on “a walk of courage,” out of the bank and back into business and music. Hart says her musical talent and world

journeys have surprised many, who have asked why she doesn’t perform in her hometown. “It’s just the right time and the right season of my life to share the girl I am with my community, family and friends,” she says. “This concert is truly a celebration of a life renewed and restored. It’s the start of a new thing – again.” Hart is referring to her first album, A New Thing, released in 2005. Her second album, Good Jesus, was released in 2007 and her most recent recording is for the family of Eric Rand, a young boy who passed away suddenly in November 2009. In her concert, Hart hopes to combine the intimacy of a familylike gathering with a

first-class performance. Her concert will showcase beautiful fully-orchestrated tracks and debut some unre-

Melanie Hart Performer corded and recent material using the piano. Undeterred by a comment she heard about inspirational music not being marketable at Canada’s Gospel Music Awards a few years ago, Hart says her music is not about awards and fame. “I’m writing and singing music that

cuts to a deeper level. I have boxes of letters and notes and emails to prove it.” Ever since performing her Broken Hallelujah to an audience attending a human trafficking awareness evening in January 2012, Hart has set her sights on performing at the Salmar Classic. She says music is a powerful way to deliver inspiration – a pouring out of her heart and soul, an offering of a musical journal of life. Pre-concert tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and are available at Bond Boutique, Victorian Impressions and the Drop Zone Weight Loss and Wellness Centre. Adult tickets will be $15 at the door. The concert takes place at 4 p.m. Doors open at 3.

OUELLETTE, JOSEPH ALFRED “FRED” NOVEMBER 4, 1917 – JUNE 3, 2013 It is with great sadness that the family of Fred Ouellette announces his passing on June 3, 2013 at the age of 95. Fred is survived by sons Wilfred “Wilf” (Gloria), John (Lisa), and Jim; brother Nelson (Yolande); grandchildren David, Dianne, Jayson; Kurt, Shane, Kyle, Angela, Tammy, Jordan; Carmen, Liam; greatgrandchildren; nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents, wife Lynn, son Joseph Clement, grandchildren Randine, Guy and Christopher, brothers and sisters-in-law Harvey (Jacqueline), Jerry (Yolande) and George (Laurette). Fred was born in Cap-St Ignace, Quebec, the eldest of 5 boys. Fred homesteaded at Roquemaure and then worked as a lumberjack and QPP officer. He and his brother Harvey hoboed across Canada by rail boxcar during the depression to find their Uncle’s gold stash on the Athabasca River banks near Chisholm. Harvey returned home and Fred stayed to work on his Uncle Henry Theriault’s farm. In WWII Fred became a prison guard where the German prisoners taught “Frenchie” to speak English. Fred’s work, whether it be blacksmith, lumberjack, millwright or sawfiler, took him and his family to many locations in Alberta before settling in Prince George, BC. He became a Journeyman Millwright in 1951. Fred was a member of the RCMP auxiliary for 20 years and retired from that when he and Lynn moved to Salmon Arm, BC to enjoy their retirement years with the promise of shorter winters. Fred and his wife Lynn raised a family of 4 boys. Fred loved music, playing violin, and telling stories, many of which were “blueberry stories” grandchildren loved to hear. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus. The family would like to thank Bastion Place and the staff for the care and attention given to Dad in his last years with us; Rene & Claudette Cote for their many years of friendship and assistance with Dad; and to Jack Bowers for his friendship, continuous support and assistance. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a future date. Flowers gratefully declined; donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice. On line condolences may be sent to Fred’s obituary at Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

Baxter Fulton’s Celebration • of Life •


heart-felt “thank you” to everyone who attended Baxter’s Celebration of Life on Friday, June 7, 2013. Many of you came a long distance. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the wonderful memories of Baxter. It was his wish that it would be a joyful and fun-filled occasion rather than a sad one. Thank you also to everyone who contributed and helped serve the lunch. Thank you to Baxter’s brother Ken and wife Linda who were the emcees. Also, to my son Kelly and our granddaughter Jennica for the fantastic presentation of Baxter’s life on screen and in music. You ALL made it an occasion that Baxter would have been proud of. Baxter was a very special person and I feel honoured to have been married to him for almost 57 years. I will always miss him.
