High water

Flume Phase One performs as expected New naturalized creek allowed fast water to disperse C AROLYN GR ANT

The first phase of Kimberley’s Mark Creek rehab did not fail during the extremely high water over the past week, says Mayor Ron McRae. In fact it performed exactly as it should, dispersing the high flow over a wider area and slowing the water down. There has been a signifi-

cant pile of gravel and rocks collected in the new phase, as high, fast water pushed them through the flume, but McRae says that when the water subsides the City will do some dredging. “What is happening is part of the naturalizing of the creek,” McRae said. “Once it’s all said and done and the whole flume is replaced, you will see those kind of deposits when the water is high. But as you get all of the natural features in, the water would have slowed more.

Boil water still in effect C AROLYN GR ANT

Jakub Sumbera of Invermere was the iron man of the Round the Mountain event last Saturday. He had an amazing time of 2 hours 31 minutes 33 seconds for the 40 km Men’s Duo course (20K bike followed by 20K run). See more from Round the Mountain, page 20.

Kimberley residents are being asked to continue to boil their water for a few more days. The boil water order came into effect last week as high water and heavy rains increased turbidity to the point that tap water in Kimberley was a murky brown. It has cleared up considerably over the weekend, but Mayor Ron McRae says it will take time for the system to get completely back to normal. “We should be able to pull the boil water within a day or two,” he said. “City crews will then flush the system to get residual sediment out. We hope to be completely back to normal by Friday. We appreciate people’s patience.”

The day was winding down. We had had our walk on the ridge, Taylor and I had snacked from the kibble bowls, and now we were curled up on our dog beds in the living room. Our human dude was desperately channel surfing, remote in hand, derriere in chair, searching for a hockey game. Then all at once his gaze snapped to the window. Leaping from said chair, he grabbed his camera, and raced outside in untied hiking boots. We followed hot on his heels, somewhat confused, but giddy with our man’s obvious excitement. We had trotted only a short ways when the human stopped, pointed his camera at the sky, and began clicking. Interspersed between the exposures he ooohed, awwwed, and made one word exclamations like, “Stunning!”, “Magic!” and a few others bordering on the profane. This was one excited hominid. Perhaps it is because we dogs do not perceive colours the same way humans do, or perhaps because we are more smell centric, but if we had glimpsed this sunset on our own I can assure you, we wouldn’t have made much of a fuss. However, in the presence of a human so obviously euphoric, we can’t help but be swept up in his excitement. You see we canines have evolved to become intrinsically linked to our people’s emotions. Thus, we feel the joy of your sunsets. Recent research has shown that dogs have a higher level of empathy for humans than other animals. True empathy means you experience a negative feeling when someone else is suffering and a positive feeling when someone else is happy. It is almost as if we can catch another person’s (or dog’s) feelings contagiously. Behaviourists have come up with an unusual but effective way to measure how receptive animals — and yes that includes you gentle reader — are to the emotions of others. That gauge is the susceptibility to contagious yawning. This is the phenomenon where someone yawns and you suddenly find yourself yawning too. Well believe it or not, when that happens you are demonstrating your ability to read the emotional state of the sleepy fellow across from you. In recent tests, when dogs were exposed to a yawning researcher, they contagiously yawned back 70% of the time. Cats, not so much. Being pack animals, both humans and dogs need to be able to read their pack mates to keep the group dynamic running smoothly. That is why the dog/human relationship is such a thing of beauty; though we are different species, we thrive because caring about each other’s emotion state is mutually beneficial. So if you ask me, do dogs enjoy a brilliant sunset, I will answer, we sure do when our humans are around. Our tails wag and we pant the happy-pant. On the other hand, when our people are depressed, frightened, angry, or just plain sad, we feel that too. It is the reality of any meaningful relationship. You know, the whole, for better, for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, deal. I for one hope that this inter-species marriage between my humans and myself is blessed with a plethora of sunsets, so that I may empathetically bathe in both the glow of colours I can’t perceive and the human happiness that I can, till death do us part.

Watch is on for Wasa as recovery begins elsewhere

While East Kootenay highways the are all open, at least to single lane alternating traffic, forestry roads are in poor shape Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

The East Kootenay is switching from emergency to recovery as creek and river levels begin to decline. However in Wasa, the flood is still on its way. According to a statement from the Regional District of East Kootenay’s information officer Loree Duczek,

things are improving across the region. In Kimberley, Mark Creek and Kimberley Creek levels are dropping, stabilizing the flood situation. The highway through Wasa is now open to single lane alternating traffic, but the threat at Wasa Lake is by no means over. The Kootenay River peaked Saturday evening and levels have begun to decline. However it takes seven to 10 days for Wasa Lake to see the effects of high water in the river. It’s expected that water in Wasa will rise quickly. A sandbagging station has been set up at Wasa Community Hall. Water Stewardship BC has also been in the

Wasa area completing assessments near the Lake and Cameron Pond. The water level in the slough end of Cameron Pond dropped about 0.4 metres yesterday. There is an area along the old roadway between Cameron Pond and the slough that is showing some signs of erosion, so it is being monitored. “We are encouraging residents and property owners in Wasa who are near the water to ensure valuables are moved out of basements, and take steps to prevent belongings from being affected by floodwater,” said Duczek. In Hosmer, evacuation orders were rescinded Sunday with residents allowed to re-

turn home. The Forest Service Unit Crew stacked 3,000 sandbags ready to put into use at the Hosmer Fire Hall. Clean up kits were expected to arrive from the Red Cross Monday. A meeting was held in Hosmer with 75 people in attendance and provided the community with information. The alert for Elko Dam, at risk of giving way due to the volume of water over the weekend, was cancelled on Sunday. BC Hydro personnel remain on site and will continue 24 hour surveillance while water levels remain high. Fernie remains in a state of local emergency. There was localized flooding in the Annex,

and pumping took place Saturday afternoon with success. All dikes are holding. All City of Fernie parks remain closed and City crews are beginning the task of identifying areas of erosion and debris piles on the trails. In Sparwood, the focus is beginning to turn to recovery, as city staff begin to assess trails and parks for damage. Efforts are underway to replace a damaged water line. There is still a state of emergency in Elkford, where work continues on debris management in Boivin Creek. Access for residents north of Elkford is a priority. In the Columbia Valley, Dutch Creek south of Fairmont is lower, al-

though an evacuation alert remains in place. Heavy equipment continues to move rock and add rip rap reinforcement along the banks of Dutch Creek and the work is about 90 per cent complete. Fairmont Creek and Cold Spring Creek are within their channels and running clearer. Meanwhile, the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations was cataloguing the condition of forestry roads on Monday. “For the next few days it would be great if people avoided backcountry roads. We don’t want to get people trapped out there,” said Dave Rebagliati at the Ministry’s Cranbrook

office. Forestry staff were scheduled to fly over backcountry roads Monday if weather allowed. “Then we will have to prioritize things and look for funding and see what we can fix and what we can’t fix. There’s just not many dollars out there,” said Rebagliati, adding that roads to popular backcountry recreation areas will be a higher priority. Closed forestry roads include Wildhorse, Mause Creek, Summer Lake, Bull River, Whiteswan, St. Mary’s Lake and Findlay. For a detailed list of what roads are closed and where, visit www.

The flume last Saturday as Mark Creek reaches its peak surge.

Karen Soldan photo

Flume passes first test From Page 1 “The first phase did exactly what is was supposed to do. The water coming out of the present flume was allowed to spread out and enter the rest of Mark Creek in a natural way.” McRae says the new phase is in good shape. “There has been a bit, I’m talking only centimetres, of natural settling and there is some material worn away between the

larger rocks. Most of that was not high water in the creek but run off from the heavy rains pouring in. Once the water returns to normal, City crews will replace that material.” The current heavy equipment sitting beside the creek was not brought in to shore up any failed areas, but for planned landscaping to finish the first phase. “The crews are there to landscape the sides,” McRae said. “In

terms of the first real high water to go through the new section, we passed the test.” In fact, McRae said if the old part of the flume was still there, which was the area of most concern, it would have been quite likely to fail. “We are seeing some degradation of the upper part of the concrete flume,” he said.

Robert Apps adds new lawyer to team

Katie Diehl, from New Zealand, is in Kimberley to stay – bringing unique expertise to the table and is passionate about helping everyday people with everyday problems by K ait y Brown

Robert Apps Law Office has added a new lawyer to their team, Katie Diehl from the other side of the world - New Zealand. Originally arriving in Kimberley in 2010 while on a working holiday, Diehl began working with the firm as a research assistant. Diehl was then offered a permanent job and an opportunity to launch her career in Kimberley, arriving back in 2012. Diehl completed her law and commerce degrees at the University of Otago, and was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand. She then proceeded to become qualified to practice law in Canada, completing 6 accreditation exams and Law Society of British Columbia bar admission program. Diehl qualified to practice law in British Columbia on June 21 and joined Robert Apps Law office as an associate. Now she is settled in Kimberley, passionate about helping everyday people with everyday issues.

Lawyer Katie Diehl

“I enjoy dealing with everyday people with everyday problems and I understand the ramifications legal problems can have on everyday life whether it be financially or

Kimberley included, of waving to everyone even though you might not actually know who they are. As well, the advantages of work only being a 6-minute drive away. “What I love about the Kootenays/Kimberley is the outdoors, the lifestyle and the positive community spirit. I enjoy cycling the rails to trails, hiking in the nature park, and scenic photography,” Diehl said in an email. “Kimberley is such a friendly and welcoming community.” But being in a new country has it’s obstacles. For Diehl these include the wildlife, the weather, driving on the wrong side of the road and orange cheese. “Friends and family are rather baffled by the thought of having a wild bear in your yard,” Diehl said. “Where I lived in New Zealand, it would snow approximately once a year, would melt within a day or so and the temperature wouldn’t drop below -3- the entire city would shut down-no school, no work and no public transport – so shovelling snow to get to work in -15 was an entirely new experience.” “What I enjoy about the practice of law so far – Helping people get positive results whether it be collaboratively or through the courts. Everyday is different – every client’s situation is different and the law is dynamic and constantly changing. Meeting people – whether it be new clients, other practitioners, or people in the community,” Diehl said. “I’m looking forward to practicing here,” she said.

emotionally. I get to see the whole picture and a real opportunity to help the ‘little guy,’” said Diehl. Diehl is more concerned, and always has been concerned, about the ‘little guy’ ranging back to the beginning, volunteering for 3 years in a community law centre in New Zealand while completing her studies. “The law centre offered free legal advice to anyone who walked through the door with a legal problem spanning from neighbour disputes to custody problems.” While completing her articles at Robert Apps Law Office, Diehl gained experience in many areas of law, including family law, real estate, wills and estates, criminal law, civil litigation and commercial law. Diehl feels that “completing articles in a small firm allows for greater exposure to refine skills and to build experience quickly.” Diehl’s preferred areas of practice include family law, criminal law and civil litigation. But Diehl is not your regular cookie-cutter lawyer - she is a former soldier of the New Zealand Army. “I was dual core in New Zealand Army Reserve force – in that I was both in the medical corp and infantry. In 2009 I was deployed to the Cook Islands for a humanitarian aid operation with the medical corp.” Having come from a small town in New Zealand, growing up in Central Otago, Diehl understands the feel and community aspect as compared to big cities – where lawyers typically go. She is familiar with the unwritten code that small towns seem to have,

Clean Bin Project cuts down on trash Townsman Staff

Cranbrook elementary students and school staff participated in a project to clean up their schools. Around 1,500 students and 100 staff members from seven Cranbrook elementary schools participated in Wildsight’s Clean Bin Project. Students were tasked with looking at the waste at their schools and finding ways reduce it for a week. “Every school was successful in reducing waste,” Skye McDougall, who co-ordinated the project, said. Students and staff watched The Clean Bin Project, a film that tells the follows a Vancouver couple challenging themselves to produce no waste for a year. Students and staff then worked with McDougall to come up with ideas on how to reduce garbage. They studied a day’s worth of garbage, looking at its weight and the number of bags filled, then did a waste audit to separate items into compost, recycling and garbage. They then discussed options for reducing waste at their school and the benefits of doing it. “The kids were geared up and ready to begin their week-long challenge,” said McDougall. “Each class had a bucket provided for compost, and staff and students were keen to begin.” RDEK and Wildsight together donated Earth Machine Composters that were set up at four schools. Three schools already had compost programs running. McDougall said composting dra-

matically reduces the amount of trash and subsequently, the amount of methane created from organic waste in the landfill. Over the weeklong project, students and staff encouraged each other to be conscious of waste, by bringing waste-free lunches and using reusable containers rather than Ziploc bags or plastic wrap. “I returned to the schools at the end of the challenge week for an assembly to celebrate the successes of the project,” said McDougall. “The kids were excited to find out if their efforts had made a difference, custodians kept the garbage from the day before for comparison with the initial weigh-in. “Every school was successful in reducing waste. Results ranged from over two kilograms (five pounds) to almost five kilograms (11 pounds) and that’s per day, so this means that schools reduced their garbage between 10 to 25 per cent, which is an amazing effort.” The schools that participated in the project were Kootenay Orchards, Amy Woodland, Kootenay Christian Academy, Highlands, Gordon Terrace, Steeples, TM Roberts and the Boys and Girls Club. McDougall noted that each student received a sticker from Wildsight as a thanks for their efforts and as a reminder to continue their efforts in reducing waste. She said Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook gratefully acknowledges the financial support of Columbia Basin Trust.

The first legislative session of the 40th Parliament begins this week, and the main business of the House will be to pass the provincial budget. That process is referred to as estimates debate. The role of opposition members in estimates is critical as it is our responsibility to question ministers, line by line, on the budgets for their ministries. The BC Liberal budget will be presented on Thursday, June 27th, and is expected to be similar to the budget they first presented before the election in February. At that time, it was considered by most to be very controversial. It is unlikely that the claims made in the budget will be able to

Stay off the bridge


The walking bridge over Mark Creek near Marysville has likely sustained some damage, although City crews will not be able to get to it until the creek levels go down. Mayor Ron McRae says that the City put out on advisory on Friday that residents should stay away from the bridge and boardwalk until staff have had a chance to assess it. “I believe there are some issues and it does have to be checked,” he said. In the meantime, the File photo boardwalk to Marysville The Mark Creek walking bridge in Marysville is considered unsafe until Falls remains closed.

Float plane crashes in Kootenay Lake Nelson Star

Two people were rescued Sunday afternoon after their float plane crashed and sank just below the Nine Mile Narrows. RCMP Sgt. Darryl Little says as the privately-owned Lake Buccaneer was taking off, it hit a wake and overturned. Nelson Search and Rescue manager Lou Coletti said they got the call around 3 p.m. and three members responded in their rescue boat. When they arrived, the male pilot and female passenger had already been pulled from the water by a boater.

They were not injured. According to police, both were from the Tarrys/Thrums area and in their 50s. “We circled around the middle of the lake for a bit but couldn’t

World population: The African exception


he news on the population front sounds bad: birth rates are not dropping as fast as expected, and we are likely to end up with an even bigger world population by the end of the century. The last revision of the United Nations’ World Population Prospects, two years ago, predicted just over 10 billion people by 2100. The latest revision, just out, predicts almost 11 billion. That’s a truly alarming number, because it’s hard to see how the world can sustain another 4 billion people. (The current global population is 7 billion.) But the headline number is deceptive, and conceals another, grimmer reality. Three-quarters of that growth will come in just one continent: Africa. The African continent currently has 1.1 billion people. By the year 2100, it will have 4.1 billion — more than a third of the world’s total population. Or rather, that is what it will have if there has not already been a huge population dieback in the region. At some point, however, systems will break down under the strain of trying to feed such rapidly growing populations, and people will start to die in large numbers. It has happened before — to Ireland in the 1840s, for example — and it can happen again. In fact, it probably will. When you look more carefully at the numbers, you can even identify which regions will be hardest hit, because even in Africa there are large areas where population growth is low and dropping. None of the Arabic-speaking countries of northern Africa will increase its population by more than one-third by 2100, and some will even be declining. South Africa, at the other end of the continent, will only add another ten million people by the cen-

tury’s end. It’s in the middle belt of Africa that things will get very ugly. Between now and 2100, six countries are expected to account for half of the world’s projected population increase: India, Nigeria, the United States of America, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Uganda. Four of the six are in central Africa. In this area, where fertility is still high, the numGwynne bers are quite astonishing. Most countries will at least Dyer triple in population; some, like Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia, are predicted to grow fivefold. That is on top of populations that have already tripled, quadrupled or quintupled in the past half-century. Uganda had 5 million people at independence in 1962; it is projected to have 205 million in 2100. The numbers are simply preposterous. Niger, a desert country whose limited agricultural land might feed 10 million people with good management, a lot of investment, and good luck with the weather, already has twice as many as that. By the end of the century it will have twenty times as many: 204 million people. All these numbers are based on assumptions about declining birth rates: if we all just carried on with the birth rates of today, there would be 25 billion people on this planet by the end of the century. The key question is: how FAST is fertility declining – and all the numbers in this article so far are from the UN’s “medium estimates”, i.e. the moderately optimistic ones. The “high estimate” for Niger gives it 270 million people by 2100: an extra 70 million. It makes no practical difference. Even the “low estimate” of 150 million people in Niger by 2100 is never actually going to happen. That is fifteen times too many people for the available land, and Niger

certainly cannot afford to import large amounts of food. Even without reckoning in the huge negative impact of climate change, large numbers of people in Niger (and quite a few other African countries) will begin starving long before that. So the real picture that emerges from the UN’s data is rather different. It is a world where two-thirds of the world’s countries will have declining populations by 2100. China and Russia will each be down by a third, and only the United States among the major developed countries will still have a growing population: up from 320 million now to 460 million. (By the way, that means there will only be twice as many Chinese as Americans by then.) In terms of climate change, the huge but ultimately self-limiting population growth in Africa will have little impact, for these are not industrialised countries with high rates of consumption and show no signs of becoming so. The high economic growth rates of African countries in recent years are driven mostly by high commodity prices, and will probably not be sustained. It is the developed and rapidly developing countries whose activities put huge pressure on the global environment, not only by their greenhouse gas emissions but also by their destructive styles of farming and fishing. Their populations are relatively stable but their actual numbers are already very large, and each individual consumes five or ten times as much as the average African. So the frightening numbers in the UN’s latest population predictions are mostly of concern to Africa — but the rest of the world is still in deep, deep trouble on many other fronts.

Cabinet rookies handed hot files


here are nine new faces in Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet, seven of them elected to the B.C. legislature for the first time on May 14. They have been handed some of the hottest problems, and Clark’s marching orders in “mandate letters” for each ministry. And this is the start of a fouryear term, when unpopular reforms are attempted. Take Amrik Virk, the former RCMP inspector from Surrey who’s suddenly in charge of advanced education. His mandate includes: “Review the student loan program to make recommendations for improvement to ensure the loan program is meeting the needs of today’s students.” Virk must also set targets to “match the skills we need with the skills we are graduating” and require post-secondary schools to “ensure student seats are being filled.” B.C. can’t afford to keep cranking out university grads with $50,000 in debt and no job prospects in a system that’s subsidized 65 per cent. Virk will be working closely with Education Minister Peter Fassbender, who must “ensure seamless transitions” from high school to the workforce for post-secondary trades and apprenticeships. In his spare time, Fassbender is to overhaul the school district bargaining agency and achieve a 10-year peace with the teach-

ers’ union. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton has worked as a Crown prosecutor, so she’ll have some insight into the system that still grapples with Stanley Cup rioters from two summers ago. Her orders are to get traffic tickets and other administrative penalties out of the courts, keep working on integrating police fiefdoms and generally BC Views treat the constipation that afflicts law enforcement Tom today. Fletcher Oh, and get that new Okanagan prison built, to relieve a system that has inmates living in tents. And examine whether to spin off the Liquor Distribution Branch into a Crown corporation, a possible prelude to selling it. Transportation Minister Todd Stone’s first test was a grilling by the Vancouver media. Yup, this Kamloops hayseed has been to the Big Smoke a few times,  ridden  that fancy SkyTrain and  taken  the odd ferry, too. Now he has to impose the ferry route reductions that have been worked on by two previous ministers, and push Metro Vancouver through a referendum on ways to fund its own transit. If more tolls or taxes are going to be implemented, now is the time. Coralee Oakes has made a political leap from Quesnel city hall to the Ministry of

Community, Sport and Cultural Development. One of her key tasks is to invent a framework for a “rural dividend” from liquefied natural gas development in northwestern B.C. Oakes has to figure out how to “better provide provincial support” to sport and cultural organizations, but do it with no new money. All ministers have strict instructions to balance their lean budgets and take part in the latest “core review” to identify government functions that can be sold, delegated or shut down. New Minister of International Trade Richmond’s Teresa Wat has to find a way to continue the growth of lumber and other exports to China, India and elsewhere on the Pacific Rim. On top of that, the always-delicate softwood lumber agreement with the U.S. expires in three years. The last major eruption on that front was in 2009, when B.C. cut stumpage rates for remote coastal areas to give communities much-needed employment. The Americans were livid, just as they were with our beetle-kill harvesting efforts. And of  course,  the U.S.-directed environmental movement continues to target Canadian industries.

No “big axe” for Core Review


Mic h ael S mythe

ill Bennett is the guy in charge of digging under the cushions of the government’s sofa in search of loose change — also known as the “core review.” His mission: find and eliminate wasteful spending and red tape, and divert any savings to the Liberals’ central goals of creating jobs and balancing the budget. As his quest for government fat begins, the MLA for Kootenay East is grateful Premier Christy Clark backed off on exorbitant pay raises for senior staffers in Victoria, that were quietly rammed through after the May election. The stunning pay hikes angered British Columbians — especially voters in Kelowna, where Clark is running in a July 10 byelection. “I told the premier I was grateful because it made my job easier,” Bennett said in an interview. So is the cost-cutting cabinet minister saying his core review would have included standing up to Clark on the outrageous pay hikes? “That’s a hypothetical,” he said. “But it could have been awkward.” Bennett is not a guy who’s ever been afraid to challenge the powers that be, creating some apprehension about just what he has in mind. After all, the last time the government went through this exercise was 2001, when then-premier Gordon Campbell’s core review led to the infamous “Black Thursday” budget cuts and public-sector layoffs. Bennett was a Liberal backbencher at the time. “We were ruthless,” he said. “Campbell came in and said, ‘Cut 25 per cent out of every ministry except health and education.’ I think we were even mean at times.” He says Core Review 2.0 will be different. Vulnerable people who rely on government services — he mentioned seniors,

disabled people and single mothers — should not worry about major program cuts, he said. “My purpose is not to go in with a big axe and start chopping,” Bennett said. But this is the same government that just brought in a $25-a-month wheelchair “maintenance fee” in provincial nursing homes. And Bennett said his core review — which will take over a year to complete — could still result in unpopular decisions. Will the review result in downsizing of the government workforce? “We already have the leanest public service in Canada and we’re in a hiring freeze now,” he said. “That doesn’t mean there won’t be anybody laid off. There may be some reductions, but I’m convinced it won’t be sweeping.” But the NDP is not convinced about anything when it comes to this exercise. Shane Simpson, the NDP’s core-review critic, said services to the province’s poor are already inadequate. “What if the review identifies places that need support instead of cuts?” Simpson asks, pointing to the province’s child-poverty rate. “Maybe some areas need more resources, not less.” “It is not our mandate to recommend new spending,” Bennett fires back, while adding he’ll alert the government to any “glaring deficits in services” the review uncovers. Andrew Weaver, the first-ever Green Party MLA, said he worries the core review will reduce environmental-protection laws to save the government money and clear the way for resource extraction like new mines and oil-and-gas projects. “It is somewhat troubling that the minister responsible for the core review is also the minister responsible for energy and mines,” said Weaver, who thinks the review should focus on rooting out waste in the

health-care system. But Bennett said the core review is meant to get the B.C. economy going, especially the energy sector. He said a hoped-for boom in liquefied natural-gas exports will require a lot more electricity — meaning more investment by B.C. Hydro in power generation, which could mean rate hikes for Hydro customers. “I’m going to have a knock-down, dragout fight with B.C. Hydro. I don’t think you can freeze rates given the existing debt at Hydro and the need to spend on new infrastructure … We’re going to have to take a look at rates for sure.” And then there’s that balanced budget the Liberals promised during the election. A key goal of the core review will be to keep a lid on spending, so the budget doesn’t slip into the red. But Simpson wonders if Bennett’s entire exercise is nothing but a big phoney show, designed to convince the public that the Liberals at least tried to deliver on a balanced-budget promise they have every intention to break. “If the budget does unravel on them, they want to be able to say, ‘Look, we tried our best. We had this core review to search for every opportunity for savings,’” Simpson said. Bennett bristles at the charge. “To suggest this review has a purely political purpose is more a commentary on the NDP than on us,” he said. “We intend to balance the budget. My review will help with that.” With that, he’s off to find every nickel and dime he can. He said the public will be given a say through some still-unrevealed consultation process.

Canucks news conference to unveil new head coach VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have called a news conference Tuesday amid reports they will name John Tortorella as their next coach. Tortorella, the former coach of the New York Rangers, arrived in Vancouver on Friday as the Canucks were in the process of finalizing their choice of a replacement for the fired Alain Vigneault. If all goes as expected, Tortorella and Vigneault will trade teams. Vigneault was named last week as Tortorella’s replacement with the Rangers. Vancouver’s all-time leader in coaching wins, Vigneault was fired in May after the Canucks were eliminated in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second consecutive year. He guided the Canucks to the seventh game of the Stanley Cup finals in 2010-11. Tortorella led New York to a 26-18-4 record and sixth-place finish in the Eastern Conference before they were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs by the Boston Bruins. The ouster came a year after Tortorella took the Rangers to the conference final, where they were eliminated by the New Jersey Devils. Tortorella has also coached Tampa Bay, guiding the Lightning to a Stanley Cup title over the Calgary Flames in 2004. In addition, he served as an assistant with the Rangers, Buffalo and Phoenix and as a head coach in the minors. He won a Calder Cup title with the AHL’s Rochester Americans in 1995-96 and guided the Virginia Lancers to an Atlantic Coast Hockey League crown in 1986-87, his first season as a coach.

Nadal stunned with 1st round exit at Wimbledon LONDON - In one of Wimbledon’s greatest upsets, an ailing Rafael Nadal was knocked out in straight sets Monday by a player ranked 135th in the world - the Spaniard’s first-ever loss in the opening round of a Grand Slam event. Steve Darcis of Belgium stunned the two-time champion 7-6 (4), 7-6 (8), 6-4, snapping the Spaniard’s 22-match winning streak and eliminating one of the Big Four of men’s tennis on the very first day of the grass-court Grand Slam. Nadal, who was sidelined for seven months with a left knee injury after losing in the second round of Wimbledon last year, seemed to be struggling physically. He was unable to turn on the speed or use his legs to spring into his groundstrokes, limping and failing to run for some shots. Associated Press

L.A. police investigating fight involving Scottie Pippen MALIBU, Calif. - Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was questioned Monday about his weekend fight with an autograph-seeker that left the man hospitalized with a head injury. Pippen came in voluntarily to a Los Angeles County sheriff’s substation after he was named as a suspect in the altercation outside Nobu restaurant, a celebrity hangout on the beach in Malibu. He spoke to police for about an hour and was released pending further investigation. “He’s being co-operative,” sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said. The unidentified victim was inside the restaurant taking photos as Pippen dined with his family Sunday evening, sheriff’s Capt. Patrick Davoren said. When Pippen went outside to the parking lot, the man continued taking pictures and sought the Hall of Famer’s autograph, Davoren said. Associated Press

Hurricanes add Lukowich to the bench Retired Cranbrook NHLer has been introduced as the new assistant coach in Lethbridge TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice fans will get a chance to see Brad Lukowich on the bench, but it won’t be in Cranbrook. The local and former NHL defenceman has been hired on as an assistant coach with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, joining newly announced bench boss Drake Berehowsky that represents a new coaching changeover for next season. “He knows what it takes to win at the highest level, and he’s also returned to Dallas and worked as a player-coach with Jordie Benn, Brenden Dillon and Philip Larsen,” said Hurricanes GM Brad Robson in a press release, adding that his experience is a huge asset to the team. Lukowich said his relationship with Robson, a former regional scout with the Dallas Stars, sealed the deal. “It’s been a long relationship so we know


Cranbrook native and former NHLer Brad Lukowich was introduced as the new assistant coach for the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Monday morning. each other quite well and him being the GM is the number one thing,” said Lukowich, who was in Lethbridge for the announcement before driving back to home in Cranbrook. “I know his history, he knows mine, so just going up there even

today, it was very comfortable, like we been around each other for a long time. Really, it came down to the term and the familiar face of Brad Robson that landed me in Lethbridge.” Lukowich is a twotime Stanley Cup winner with the Dallas Stars

(1999) and the Tampa Bay Lightning (2004) and has appeared in 658 regular season NHL games over his career. Prior to turning pro, Lukowich played major-junior hockey in the WHL with the Kamloops Blazers and won consecutive Memorial Cups in 1994

and 1995. Lukowich said coming in on a new coaching tandem with Berehowsky was another factor that made Lethbridge appealing. “He’s fresh, which is great for me, I like that because there is a change in the game right now,” Lukowich said. “It’s become a different style and he’s one of those ex-players that jumped right off the ice and went into coaching. “…He’s seen the morph of the game gone from the North American style into the Euro-North American style, which is a blend of the two, so he’s very familiar with the way the game is being taught now and played.” Berehowsky, himself a former NHL rearguard, has worked in the OHL with the Barrie Colts and in the AHL with the Peoria Riverman, both in an assistant coaching capacity.

Leach inks AHL deal with Oklahoma City Barons TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Looks like Joey Leach is sticking around in Oklahoma. The former Kootenay Ice captain has impressed the brass with the Oklahoma City Barons in the AHL to earn a one-year, one-way contract, which was announced by the organization on Monday. “I got it through Friday morning, but they released it today,” said Leach, speaking from Saskatoon, where he is training at the University of Saskatchewan for the off-season. “So it just took a little while to process it all.” Not bad for a guy who only got in one game for his amateur tryout, which he earned after the Kootenay Ice was bounced out of the first round of the WHL playoffs. Leach’s only appearance was in the final game of the Barons’ regular season, where he

put two shots on net and served a two-minute minor. “I love being up there, it gave me a chance to see a little bit of the speed and everything and obviously to figure out how they do things up there and the lifestyle that you have to live in order to play there,” said Leach. “… Only getting into the one game, obviously I’d like to get into more, but that helped me a lot too, just finding out the speed a little more.” With the Oklahoma City Barons, Leach is now in the system of the Edmonton Oilers after getting picked up in the third round of the 2010 NHL Draft by the Calgary Flames, only to turn into a free agent after two years. While Leach adjusted to the the technical side of the game in the AHL, he also went through some off-ice trauma—along with the rest of the city—when a

tornado tore through a suburb on May 20th. He was 10 miles away from the hardest hit area while staying in a hotel along with some teammates. The league had to cancel another game 10 days later because of tornado warnings. “That was quite the experience to have that happen when I was down there. A couple of them got pretty close to us,” said Leach. “…We weren’t in any immediate danger, so they just told us we could stay in the hotel and we watched it unfold on the TV.” Just as Leach did went out in the community while with the Ice, he, along with some Barons teammates, headed out into the city to volunteer for relief efforts. “A few of us, we went and took some supplies down to the tornado relief victims, to one of the shelters down there, al-

deal, signing a one-year two-way contract with the Dallas Stars. Fraser had a team-high 33 goals this season with the Texas Stars, and appeared in 12 games with his parent club in Dallas.

‘Hawks stun Bruins to win Stanley Cup Neil Davidson Canadian Press

BOSTON - An NHL season cut short by a labour dispute will be long remembered, thanks to a glorious finale between the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins. The two teams will have vastly different memories of the championship series, but neutrals won’t soon forget a Chicago’s Game 6 comeback that saw two goals in 17.7 seconds - a wild sequence that started with less than 80 seconds remaining before a packed TD Garden on Monday night. Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored back-to-back as the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in dramatic fashion with an amazing 3-2 comeback victory over the Bruins. “Nobody saw it coming,” said Chicago coach Joel Quenneville. Milan Lucic’s third-period goal looked to have given the Bruins a 2-1 victory and a new lease of life in the final. A Game 7 on Wednesday in Chicago seemed next. But with Chicago goalie Corey Crawford out for an extra attacker, Bickell tied it up at 18:44 after Jonathan Toews circled out of the corner when Boston was unable to clear the puck. With two teammates waiting for him in front of goal, Toews chose Bickell and the game was suddenly tied. Bolland then won the Cup seconds after the puck drop, tucking

in a rebound of a Johnny Oduya point shot that hit the goal-post. Bolland nipped between two defenders to redirect the puck in at 19:01 to stun the Bruins and previously raucous crowd. “It’s a tough way to lose, tough way to lose a game, tough way to lose a series,” said Boston captain Zdeno Chara.

“Nobody saw it coming.” Joel Quenneville Even more so for a Bruins team that hoped to win a Cup for a city rocked by the Boston Marathon bombings in April, said coach Claude Julien. “You know, at the end of the day, I think that’s what hurts the most is in the back of our minds, although we needed to focus on our team and doing what was going to be the best thing for our team to win a Stanley Cup ... It hit close to home, and the best way we felt we could try and cheer the area was to win a Stanley Cup,” he said. “I think that’s what’s hard right now for the players. We had more reasons than just ourselves to win a Cup.” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was once again booed after the game during the trophy presentations that saw Chicago sniper Patrick Kane win the Conn Smythe award as playoff MVP. Toews, reduced to a

spectator the final minutes of Game 5, added a goal and an assist as the Blackhawks clawed their way back into Monday’s game. The captain was the first to hoist the Cup as his teammates jumped up and down on enemy ice. Chicago’s stars came through when it counted. And its depth showed against a Bruins side that was clearly hurting. For Boston, it was a painful reminder of how it feels to be at the wrong end of a comeback. The Bruins had mounted a history-making three-goal charge in the third period of Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round

before winning in overtime. “Sometimes they go your way and sometimes they don’t. We’ve lived through both of them, so we know how it feels on both sides of it, winning and being the losers,” said Julien, who was gracious in defeat. Crawford finished with 23 saves in the victory that marked Chicago’s fifth championship and second title in four years. “That team in 2010, we didn’t really know what we were doing,” Toews said. “We played great hockey, and we were kind of oblivious to how good we were playing. This time around we know definitely how much work it

takes and how much sacrifice it takes to get back here, and this is an unbelievable group. “We’ve been through a lot together this year, and this is a sweet way to finish it off.” Added Quenneville: “It’s always the greatest feeling in the world, so it can’t be any better. So it’s always a tie, and once you do it, you can’t wait to do it again. The stories, the ups and downs and the process of trying to win a Cup, that’s what makes it so special.” Chris Kelly had the other goal for Boston, while Tuukka Rask made 28 saves. The Bruins offence was limited by a power play that went 0-for-4 on the night.

Kane picks up Conn Smythe as playoff MVP for Blackhawks Stephen Whyno Canadian Press

BOSTON - Patrick Kane didn’t have to score the Stanley Cup-winning goal this time to earn the Conn Smythe Trophy. His performance throughout the playoffs, and especially the final, did the trick. Kane, whose overtime goal in 2010 gave the Blackhawks their first championship since 1961, led Chicago in scoring in the 2013 playoffs. He finished with 19 points on nine goals and 10 assists, including nine points in his final 10 games. “It’s much deserved,”

said captain Jonathan Toews, who won the Conn Smythe three years ago. “There’s a lot of guys in that room that could have won that. I don’t think there’s anyone better than him. They way he played down the stretch, we wouldn’t be here without him. He’s a hell of a player. I’m very happy for him.” Kane joked that goaltender Corey Crawford (1.84 goals-against average and .932 save percentage) was snubbed. Cases also could have been made for left-winger Patrick Sharp and Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask.

But Kane was one of the Blackhawks’ major catalysts, especially once coach Joel Quenneville reunited with Toews and Bryan Bickell on Chicago’s No. 1 line. “I think it speaks more for my team than myself, personally,” Kane said. “Playing with great players, it was the best year of my life just playing with these guys.” Kane scored twice in Game 5 to put the Blackhawks on the verge of their second title in four years and was on the ice for two more goals in Monday’s Game 6 clincher at TD Garden.

Canadians bring their game to Wimbledon C anadian Press

WIMBLEDON, England - It was a successful main draw debut at Wimbledon for Canadian Eugenie Bouchard. The Montreal native rallied to defeat Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan 5-7, 7-6 (5), 6-4 on Monday. Bouchard fired 29 winners and broke her opponent’s serve three times, coming back after losing the opening set and again in the third set after losing an early break. She had 25 unforced errors and three aces. “It was a tough battle,” Bouchard said. “I didn’t play my best but fought my hardest. I came close to losing but I was able to fight my way back. I’m happy for that.” Later Monday, Vancouver’s

Vasek Pospisil, ranked No. 99, beat 131st-ranked Marc Giquel of France 6-3, 6-2, 7-6 (3). Bouchard lost the first set when she sent a backhand long, but took the second against the 88th-ranked Voskoboeva after nearly an hour as she rallied from a 4-0 deficit in the tiebreaker. In the third, Bouchard went up a break only to lose it three games later on a forehand error. But she got the break back for 5-4 and served out to win a game later on the first of three match points. “In the end I think I broke (Voskoboeva) down a bit,” Bouchard said. “I know she has a bit of a temper and I could see that after she lost the second set. That didn’t bother me, but it did give me energy.

“I was confident and calm and felt I could outlsast her which I did.” Bouchard is playing in the women’s draw for the first time after winning the junior crown last year. Her win came despite her modest grass-court season, with the teenager winning one round in a lower-level event in Nottingham and one qualifying round at Eastbourne. Bouchard will face former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic of Serbia in the second round. The 12th-seeded Ivanovic defeated Virginie Razzano of France 7-6 (1), 6-0 on Monday. “I’m looking forward to playing Ivanovic in the next round but I have to play better than today,” Bouchard said. “I need to fight a lot. She’s a great

player and I’m excited to be facing her.” Pospisil used a dominant serve in his match, firing 25 aces. He also made 30 unforced errors to Giquel’s 28. After picking up the victory, Pospisil said he played “one of the better matches” of his career. “I played great, every part of my game was sharp,” he said. “I was pleased with my level of aggression, being able to stay relaxed and seeing the game really well. “I was playing very fast and making (Giquel) uncomfortable.” For the 23-year-old Pospisil, this year marks his second time at the All England Club. He was eliminated in the first round in his Wimbledon debut last year.

Lukowich to draw on experience with new coaching gig Continued from page 8 Lukowich will draw on his years of developing and playing professionally to coach his young players when the season rolls around next September. He already has a bit of experience in that department working with the Dallas Stars’ prospects in Austin with the Texas Stars in the AHL as a player-coach. “I was kind of coaching as an extra guy in Austin for a couple years,” Lukowich said. “I was doing some stuff with management as well, and I loved it. I thought it was great. “I spent a lot of attention on a couple guys, usually the younger guys. If you can just tweak a couple little things with them, you can make them so much better. I loved how interested the guys were in learning and to tell them something

and then see them go out and get the direct response and see them kind of turn around and give you a look that you kind of knew what you were talking about—the reward paid off.” It was Lukowich’s desire to get into coaching once he hung up his skates in 2012, however, instability caused by the NHL lockout kept him away from game. During the hiatus, he was able to take a bit of a break and enjoyed spending time with his family, but once the puck dropped in January, he got the itch. “It’s something I want to be around, I love the game of hockey and I just wanted to be back in it, in any way, shape or form,” Lukowich said. “I always kind of thought about getting into coaching and this is the way to do it.”

Blue Jays win streak skids to a halt with 4-1 loss to Rays Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Three quick homers and strong pitching by the Tampa Bay Rays put an end to Toronto’s winning streak. Jeremy Hellickson allowed one hit in seven shutout innings and rookie Wil Myers homered in his home debut, helping the Rays beat the Blue Jays 4-1 on Monday night to end Toronto’s 11game surge. “I think that, to go on that streak, we had to believe that we were able to do that,” Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia said. “I don’t think the belief has changed at all. We had a good run, game over, and come back tomorrow.” Myers hit the second of three straight Tampa Bay homers in the second, connecting in his first at-bat at Tropicana Field. He received a standing ovation from a crowd of 11,407 getting its initial close-up view of the key acquisition in the off-season trade that sent pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis to Kan-

sas City for the power-hitting right fielder and other prospects. “He’s got it all,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “He’s got a chance to be a really, really good player. It’s all in there.” Myers’ drive to centre off Esmil Rogers (3-3) was sandwiched between home runs by James Loney and Sam Fuld as Tampa Bay went deep three times within a span of eight pitches. Luke Scott added a bloop RBI double to make it 4-0 in the third, and that was all the support Hellickson needed. “I was a little scared to throw my breaking pitch,” Rogers said. “I don’t know why.” A night after scoring a season-high 13 runs at home to complete a three-game sweep of Baltimore, the Blue Jays were limited to four singles and five walks.

Rhymes with Orange

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My older sister, “Johanna,” was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer two years ago. Since then, she seems to have one new “lifelong dream” after another that she expects my brother and me to finance. My brother has worked hard his entire life and saved his money. He tried helping Johanna with her first dream (a house) with a loan. Her husband initially told Johanna that my brother refused to help, and Johanna told him to “die a miserable death.” She lightened up when she found out the truth. When the bank didn’t approve the deal, she did repay most of the money. I’ve tried to help her, too, but I could not afford to keep giving her money. Johanna’s latest dream is a hobby farm. She asked my brother to give her $18,000 as an outright gift. He told her no. Johanna stopped speaking to both of us, even though I have no control over what my brother does. Here’s the real problem. Her husband recently asked both of us for money and, as always, made sure to mention that she might die any moment. They have both used her possible death to guilt us into giving her money. Annie, I love my sister, but it doesn’t seem right that they use this as a weapon against us. It also bothers me that Johanna stops speaking to us if we deny her. None of us is wealthy. If I had the cash, I’d give it to her. But I also understand my brother’s point of view. Another sibling took him for a lot of money many years ago, running up thousands of dollars in credit card debt. There is a good possibility that nothing will come of this hobby farm, and we’d all be out a lot of money, and for what? We aren’t young anymore. What do you advise? -- Torn Sister Dear Torn: It’s obvious that you want to be a good sister to Johanna. When someone is having health problems, you should be supportive emotionally, offer to cook meals or help with errands. But there is no obligation to buy them a hobby farm or any other expensive slice of wish fulfillment. Johanna is using her illness to manipulate you, counting on your guilt to get what she wants. Too bad she cannot appreciate what you are already giving her: your love and caring. Dear Annie: My family is planning a surprise party for my mom’s big birthday. One sibling lives far away, but he has frequent-flier miles and can fly free. Plus, he has friends in the area with whom to stay. The others all live nearby. However, it will cost me more than $2,000 to attend (airfare, hotel and car rental). I also am not eligible for vacation and will be docked pay for the days I miss. I want very much to attend, but my siblings have rented a venue for the party and are hiring caterers, arranging valet parking, etc. I am afraid I will not be able to afford it all. Any suggestions? -- Not Rich Kid Sis Dear Not Rich: Please don’t wait until your siblings send you a bill. Any costs that are expected to be shared should be discussed in advance and agreed to by all parties. Call your siblings and explain your dilemma. Ask what they expect from you, and tell them what you can afford. Work it out now so there are no hard feelings down the road. Dear Annie: “Disgusted” said that a charitable organization had sent him various free items, including a check for $2.50. Anyone who receives an unsolicited check in the mail should read the endorsement area carefully. By signing and cashing the “free” check, you may be entering into an agreement to buy or invest in something in which you have no interest, and it will cost much more than you think. -- Ed in Florida Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

River peaks in Medicine Hat; Calgary evacuees return home Jennifer Gr aham Canadian Press

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. — The river that flows through Medicine Hat peaked Monday, but officials said the southeastern Alberta city was still in flood mode and residents would not be allowed to return to their homes for at least a few days. Ron Robinson, director of emergency measures, said floodwaters from the South Saskatchewan River were still threatening protective berms. “The structural integrity of our berms is at issue and we require vigilant monitoring,’’ Robinson said at an update. “Substantial flooding continues to impact our berms and (they) could fail suddenly. “This is why there is an urgent need for people to be safe.’’ But he added the city was starting to turn its attention to recovery, including “facilitating the return of as many folk as we can where it is deemed safe to do so.’’ About 1,000 homes have been hit by high water and 10,000 people who were forced to head for higher ground on the weekend were still out. About 1,500 people

were registered at the city’s emergency centre and accommodation had been provided for about 600. Mayor Norm Boucher said it would be at least several days before the city would be “more mobile.’’ “It’s still not safe for people to return home. The water has moved down but it hasn’t moved down a lot,’’ Boucher said. “There’s still debris coming out. We have some dams that are starting to leak a little bit.’’ Sand-bagging efforts continued as a result, he said. “We anticipate it will probably be a few days before we can actually be a lot more mobile. We’re asking patience. “I know they want to go back ... but the reality is they won’t have electricity. They won’t have gas in the house. They can’t run pumps if they have water in the basement.’’ Anyone trying to go back early would be turned away, he said. “They will be stopped.’’ The flooding, while serious, was not as bad as had originally been feared after the devastation in Calgary and


CANMORE, Alta. A leading scientist says flooding in southern Alberta has changed the Rockies and the foothills forever. John Pomeroy, one of Canada’s top water researchers, says the overflowing waters have changed everything from how the landscape will handle future flooding to the animals that live in it. Pomeroy says Alberta towns and cities will need much better flood defences in the future to handle high rainfall events. He says the Bow River has swallowed so much silt from eroding banks that its status as a blue-ribbon trout stream is in doubt. Pomeroy says many of the developments that have been affected by the flooding should never have been built in the first place.


People place sand bags as the river rises rapidly and begins flooding in Medicine Hat, Alta., on Sunday, June 23, 2013. other communities upstream. Water managed to top sandbag barriers in some areas of the city and there was flooding in some neighbourhoods, but other defences remained dry. Two of the three bridges that connect the city’s north and south were closed Sunday over fears the river would overrun them, but Robinson said they would be opening later in the day Monday. Robinson got an aerial view of the flooding Sunday. “You’d almost think

we’re in the muddy waters of the Mississippi right now that surrounds a lot of these homes,’’ he said. “It’s actually quite tragic in some areas.’’ The closed sections of the city were being patrolled by police to guard against possible looting. In Calgary, people were returning to assess the damage and begin the long cleanup. Residents have been warned there is still a long way to go before the city and its downtown will be back to

A flooded Calgary Stampede stadium is seen from an aerial view in Calgary on Saturday. ing crews are working to scrape mud away and to sanitize buildings, he said. Organizers are also promising to hold the traditional parade July 5 to open the Stampede, though adjustments

normal, although crews are working hard to clean up and restore utilities. People in High River, the community hardest hit by the flooding, didn’t have much reason for optimism. Mayor Emile Blokland said there was still no timeline for when 13,000 evacuees would be able to return. He said he understood their frustration, but explained that the town’s infrastructure had suffered a “critical blow’’ and every house needed to be inspected.

Stampede to go ahead ‘come hell or high water’ CALGARY — The president of the Calgary Stampede says the world-famous event will go ahead next week “come hell or high water.’’ Bob Thompson says crews have been pumping millions of litres of water from the rodeo grounds, which were swamped last week by extensive flooding that hit much of southern Alberta. “Throughout our entire history, we have never cancelled a show, despite two wars and a Great Depression — 2013 will be no exception,’’ he said at a news conference Monday. “We will be hosting the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, come hell or high water.’’ Professional clean-

may need to be made to the route through a downtown that was swamped by floodwaters. Stampede CEO Vern Kimball said he understands that many people’s homes have been

damaged. His own home was flooded. But he said he believes the Stampede will be a welcome distraction and will provide the city an opportunity to show the world its resiliency.

“We want all of those affected by flooding in southern Alberta to have the opportunity to take a break from these difficult circumstances,’’ Kimball said. “We are going to do whatever it takes to be ready for July 5.’’ The 101-year-old Stampede features a rodeo, chuckwagon races and a large midway. Kimball said Stampede setup normally takes three weeks and the flood has cost crews 10 days. He said they will be working around the clock instead of the usual 16 hours a day. “The same amount of effort in a much shorter period of time.’’ No thought has been given to what all that extra work will cost, he said.

CALGARY — The Alberta government is approving $1 billion to kickstart the first phase of flood recovery in the province. Premier Alison Redford says the money will be used to support people who were forced to leave their homes, as well as to run relief centres and to start rebuilding infrastructure. “This is going to be a tough week, but we are going to get through it,’’ she said at a news conference Monday. “We are going to stay committed and we are going to make sure that, in the long term, we do everything we need to ensure that families and communities can feel safe and that we rebuild and honour our past and our future,’’ she said. “We are going to do — please listen to my words — whatever it takes to get everyone back to a place where they can continue to live their lives.’’ Redford said the government will provide pre-loaded debit cards to displaced residents to help with their immediate housing needs and day-to-day purchases. Those who qualify will receive $1,250 per adult and $500 per child. The unforeseen expense means Alberta won’t meet its goal of balancing the provincial budget in the next few years, the premier said. “It is going to affect the budget and I will say right now, because someone is going to ask the question, ‘Are we sticking to the plan to balance the budget?’ No, we’re not,’’ she said. “The world changed (last) Thursday morning and I think as a Treasury Board we’ve come to terms with that. We think Albertans have come to terms with that. “This is like nothing we have ever faced before and we are up to the challenge.’’

Prince William sends royal couple’s sympathies to Alberta C ANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have written the prime minister, passing along their sympathies to those affected by the severe flooding in Alberta. “Catherine and I have been saddened to learn of the deaths and destruction caused by the unprecedented flooding throughout the Province of Alberta,’’ says a note from Prince William, released by Stephen Harper’s office. “Please pass on our best wishes to the lieutenant-governor and premier of Alberta and to the brave emergency services and all those volunteering to help their neighbours during this ongoing period of intense efforts. “Please be assured of our continued thoughts and prayers for all those caught up in the flooding.’’

Round The Mountain

This year the biggest trekking, hiking, running, walking and biking race competition in Kimberley had a record breaking number of registrations. 450 people participated in the event, ranging from children to seniors, challenging themselves and encouraging their fellow athletes. As well, participants came from all over the East Kootenay to Kimberley to challenge the North Star Mountain Trail.


Kimberley’s Frank Ackermann came in 1st place for the 20k race at this years Round the Mountain.

Family and friends of the athletes were there to cheer them on after they crossed the finish line and accomplished their personal goals.

Winter Knudsgaard from Kimberley came in 1st place in the Round the Mountain Kiddie Extreme 1 km run and bike.

The Round the Mountain featured a number of events for kids of all ages, even toddlers, for running and biking around their very own trail. The kids demonstrated excellent performance in the races.

Photo Contributed

Competition was tough between the 3 on Course Aid Stations to be the “Best Aid Station in North America”. Here we have Aid Station #1 with their interpretation of a Mash unit: L-R Mike Dutoit; Janet Pearson; Rob McInnis; Cora Miller.

The kids had a blast with face-painting and prices for everyone who crossed the finish line.
