GETTING BACK TO NATURE A group of 18 Sa-Hali secondary students has returned from a challenging trip to Mount Robson a little stronger, a little wiser and, in some cases, a little kinder. Hiking and camping under the stars with nary a cellphone or iPod among them led to some serious self-discovery.

Mine foes: Letter shows lack of transparency By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s plenty of ink, but few revelations in the latest release from the Kamloops Area Preservation Society (KAPA). Last night, after KTW’s press deadline, opponents of the proposed Ajax mine released a letter from the BC Centre for Disease Control they say casts doubt on the entire approval process for the controversial open-pit copper and gold mine planned for south of Aberdeen. KAPA spokesman John Schleiermacher would not discuss in detail the contents of the letter, obtained via a freedom of information request from Interior Health. “The Interior Health Authority has sent a letter to the Centre for Disease control in regards to what studies should be done, how they should be done and the format. And this was the response from the CDC,” he said. “You will not believe this letter.”

But, when KTW tracked down the letter, written by Dr. Catherine Elliott on behalf of the National Collaborating Centre for Environmental Health, it appeared the issue was not the letter’s contents so much as the lack thereof. About two-thirds of the letter is blacked out. According to the section of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act cited in the redactions, “the head of a public body may refuse to disclose to an applicant information that would reveal advice or recommendations developed by or for a public body or a minister.” In the remaining portion of the letter, Dr. Elliott recommends having the noise and dispersion models for the Ajax mine reviewed more thoroughly by experts. “There are a number of considerations that could be addressed to more thoroughly assess the potential impacts to air and noise and their effects on human health,” she writes at another point in the letter. Those considerations — which

cover about two pages — are all redacted. Schleiermacher said it’s not clear what was done with the information in the letter or how it will inform the mine’s health impact studies. KAPA has criticized the healthassessment portion of Ajax’s assessment before. Last month, it released a letter from the IHA, asking the assessment office to hire a third-party consultant to help with the health study. It’s not clear whether that ever happened. Schleiermacher said the office has not given its community advisory group any indication it has responded to the IHA request. “We’re not getting anything from the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. There’s no transparency whatsoever. Whatever we want, we have to go through Freedom of Information,” he said. In response to repeated inquiries from KTW at the time, a spokesman with the office was only able to confirm it was aware KAPA had released the letter.

This heavily redacted letter from the BC Centre for Disease Control to the Interior Health Authority was the subject of a press conference staged last night (June 26) by the Kamloops Area Preservation Council (KAPA), a group opposed to the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine south of Aberdeen. KAPA spokesman John Schleiermacher argues the fact the letter was obtained via a freedom of information request, and not available for the public to view, casts doubt on the approval process being used. The letter is two-and-a-half pages long, with most of the wording blacked out, and can be viewed online at kamloopsthisweek. com.

Highland Road widening set to begin next week By next week, Juniper residents should see work begin on the widening of Highland Road. Council this week awarded the tender for the project to Dawson Construction Ltd. Public works director Tracy

Kyle said the project will come in almost $2 million under budget — at $4.1 million rather than $6 million as initially expected. The project will add a second lane of uphill traffic to Highland Road, as well as a multi-use path.

Another highly anticipated project is also expected to begin in the near future. Kyle said lighting improvements along Tranquille Market are out to tender, with work slated to begin this summer.

THIS WEEK

HEATING UP FOR CANADA DAY Bring a hat, pour on the sunscreen and make sure your water bottles are full. This year’s Canada Day celebration at Riverside Park on Monday, July 1, will feature scorching-hot temperatures, with the mercury expected to hit 36 C. The Lions Club’s famous pancake breakfast begins at 7 p.m., while the Kamloops Multicultural Society will open its popular ethnic-food booths at 10:30 a.m. “By 11 a.m. they’re usually chomping at the bit,” said society president Ray Dhaliwal. Food offerings this year run the gamut from Thai and Japanese to Greek and Metis cuisine. Of-age folks can wash down their ethnic fare at the beer gardens, which open on the Riverside Park tennis courts at 11 a.m. In addition to the usual food, dance and cultural booths that mark the KMS Canada Day celebrations, Dhaliwal said the Kamloops Vintage Car Club will join in the festivities this year, with a small display of oldtime cars. If the day’s activities spark some wanderlust, there’s also a raffle to win a $1,500 travel voucher from Greyhound Canada. To enter, visit the Kamloops Arts Council booth, the KMS booth, and the Greyhound Canada bus that will be parked near Interior Savings Centre. This year’s Art in the Park celebration has 45 items to celebrate 45 years, with a day-long silent auction featuring jewelry, sculptures and other art items, as well as a golf package and tickets to Western Canada Theatre. In addition, the Salvation Army will be on site collecting non-perishable food items and transit to and from the park will be free. This year’s fireworks display will begin at approximately 10 p.m., with funding from Kamloops Multicultural Society and Heritage Canada ($4,000) and KGHM Ajax ($2,500). Meanwhile, Sun Peaks Resort will be bumping during Summer Kick-off Weekend, which runs from Friday, June 28 to Sunday, June 30. On the menu: The West Coast Lumberjack Show, the sixth annual Mountain of Beer and Chili Cook-off, Sun Peaks Art Zone workshops and the Sun Peaks and Region Farmers’ Market. World-class alpine hiking and mountain-biking trails will also become accessible when the Sunburst chairlift starts churning.

CITY HALL

Stat freaks, rejoice! Just in time for the end of the school year, the city of Kamloops’ annual yearbook is online and in print. The city’s annual report for 2012 is now available at City Hall and online at kamloops. ca. As always, it features a collection of highlights and statistics for the year that was, from the city’s bicentennial celebrations to the number of business licences on the books. Also included are the city’s financial statements, including a list of the biggest single taxpayers (Domtar, at $5.9 million, is number one) and organizations receiving property-tax exemptions.

Teeing up townhomes The first phase of a new residential development on what used to be Hole No. 4 of the Aberdeen Hills Golf Links took another step forward this week. City council has agreed to a development permit for 24 units of townhomes at 2100 Pacific Way. The units will border West Highlands Park, which the city is in the process of designing and building. A second phase of the project, to be built at a later date, will add another 11 units to the property, along with some commercial space.

Performing artist Michelle Botel (left) and artist Cindy Ruberg are among the participants promoting the upcoming Canada Day celebration in Riverside Park. The Monday, July 1, extravaganza will be held under sunny skies. For more on Canada Day and a schedule of events, turn to page A13. Dave Eagles/KTW

Rayleigh neighbours park dispute in council chambers By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A neighbourhood dispute spilled into city council chambers on Tuesday, June 25, as residents on Helmcken Drive in Rayleigh sparred over an illegally built carport and garage. Bradley Silbernagel of 135 Helmcken Dr. was hoping to get a development-variance permit for the garage, which is over the maximum size allowed in the city, and for the carport, which was built too close to the front of his lot. Both structures were built without city permission. However, neighbouring homeowners said council should ask him to tear down both buildings, saying it isn’t fair for Silbernagel to be allowed to keep the

structures because he didn’t ask for permission before work began. “I would like variances to be granted on something more than, ‘I would like to have more than what my neighbours have,’ or ‘I overbuilt because I didn’t get a permit first,’” said neighbour Brenda Chambers. Chambers said other houses on the street have had variance granted, but in those cases there was a “quirky aspect” to the property that needed correcting. “I can’t see a quirky aspect here that needs 30 per cent more than the rest of us,” she said. Next-door neighbour Leona Ketsa had similar complaints. “We built our house, we followed all the bylaws, we did whatever was required and

better,” she said. “And here he’s saying, ‘Oops, I forgot to get the permit’? That doesn’t fly with me.” Silbernagel said the garage issue isn’t his fault, noting the building was there when he bought the property several years ago. While he did build the carport without permission, which he said was an honest mistake, Silbernagel said neighbours on the street are only opposing the variance because they don’t like him personally. “They’re misleading you and saying a lot of mistruths because they have a hate on for me,” he told council. Councillors agreed to let Silbernagel keep the garage, but couldn’t decide what to do about the carport, splitting the vote 4-4 on whether to ask him to tear it down.

They eventually agreed to table the deci-

sion until their next meeting on July 16,

will be available to cast the tie-breaking vote.

‘Not just another strata’

A place to play. A place to stay.

BlueGreen Living Communities will rise on Battle By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Andrew Karpiak’s new development is not a commune. “That’s the furthest thing from what this is,” said the CasMan Homes developer. But, the new 21-unit housing development Karpiak is hoping to build on Battle Street at Eighth Avenue in conjunction with BlueGreen Living Communities isn’t a traditional condo project, either. “It’s not just another strata development,” Karpiak said. “There’s affordability here and there’s a sense of society, I guess you could call it. It’s for people wanting to be a bit more connected to each other.” The project, which CasMan Homes unveiled at an open house this week at Desert Gardens Community Centre, is planned as a three-story building with rooftop garden and one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 585 square feet to 950 square feet.

Pricing would start about $199,000, though Karpiak is still working up exact figures. While floor plans for the units are already set, part of what makes the build unique is that there is still design work left to do. Those who buy into the project get a say in deciding how a 2,200-square-foot common area and a smaller activity room will be designed. Depending on the needs of the buyers, the rooms could contain craft tables, communal cooking space, a lounge area — even a suite for a live-in caretaker. That gives residents somewhere to foster a sense of community, but doesn’t require them to give up a private space for sleeping and cooking, Karpiak said. “It’s not co-op like in the old days,” he said. “This is pure strata. You own your unit, but there’s far more involvement in the design phase that the ownership has. There’s far more friendship involved.

“You get to know your neighbours much more intimately. It just seems to be a bit more of an aging-in-place model,” he said. Strata owners are also encouraged to work together to care for their community, which Karpiak said can help keep costs lower for everyone. “Instead of hiring out a big landscaping company to do the landscaping, maybe the ownership group looks after it themselves,” he said, noting it could keep residents from having to pay hundreds in monthly strata fees that are typical of such builds. For this development, CasMan Homes is planning on selling units exclusively to people over the age of 55, but Karpiak said he’s been approached by younger people who want to see a similar model built for them. “The reaction has been fantastic so far,” he said.

Kamloops Mounties warn of stranger danger Be careful when opening your door to strangers. On June 19, Kamloops RCMP responded to a report of a theft of jewelry from a home in the 600block of Nicola Street in the downtown core. Earlier that evening, a male knocked on the door of a house, asking to use the telephone. After using the phone, he asked to use the wash-

room before leaving. Afterward, the female homeowner discovered two bracelets and a few broaches were missing. The male, described only as having a medium build with thinning hair, has not been found/ Anybody with information is asked to call police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-8477.

Host of cabinet rookies handed hot political files

T

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 four-year term, when unpopular reforms are attempted. Take Amrik Virk, the former RCMP inspector from Surrey who is 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 is 65 per cent subsidized. 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 teachers’ union. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton has worked as a Crown prosecutor, so she’ll have some insight into the system that still grapples with

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In

VICTORIA 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 treat the constipation that afflicts law enforcement today. 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 in 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. Third-term MLA John Rustad gets aboriginal relations, with specific instructions to deal with gas and perhaps oil pipelines through his Nechako Lakes constituency. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

With the big celebration upon us this long weekend, we reach into past KTW pages to once again salute this fantastic country. From the June 30, 2010 edition of Kamloops This Week, a slightly updated tribute to our nation: On Monday, July 1, Canada will be 146 years young and Riverside Park is ripe for celebration. There is so much to celebrate about this crazy country of three ocean coastlines and five time zones Give a toast to this country of comics, of spendthrift senators, of wild weather, of vinegar on French fries, of hockey, of high taxes, of CanCon, of pogey, icky-bicky, loonies and toonies, of adoring the CBC, of hating the CBC, of voting, but against rather than for a party, of choosing not to vote but bitching about the results anyway, dammit! Salute this remarkable land that has blessed us with all this and more. Don’t for a moment think we cannot be brilliant. Consider just a smidgen of what Canada has offered up to the rest of the globe: CPR dummy, anti-gravity suit, automatic lubricators, Balderdash, basketball, electric cooking range, electric wheelchair, Fuller brush, ice hockey, kayak, kerosene, lacrosse, computerized braille, electric car heater, electric light bulb, JAVA, instant mashed potatoes, prosthetic hand, film colourization, Pablum, jetliner, Jolly Jumper, zipper, snowblower, snowmobile, garbage bag, Avro Arrow, heart pacemaker, electric organ, IMAX movie system, goalie mask, electric microscope, electric streetcar, gramophone, lawn sprinkler, insulin process, Marquis wheat, Robertson screwdriver, newsprint, odometer, football goalpost with single base, Trivial Pursuit, paint roller, Plexiglass, Mcintosh apple, standard time, telephone, music synthesizer, television camera, safety paint, television, portable film developing system, telephone handset, railway sleeper car, undersea telegraph cable, mobile blood transfusion service, light bulb, walkie-talkie, wireless radio, Pictionary, birchbark canoe, retractable beer-case handle, snow shoes, steam foghorn, table hockey, Superman, toboggan, synchronized swimming, Velcro, five-pin bowling, Abdominizer, Yahtzee, AC radio tube, acetylene — and, of course, threedown football, the way God meant it to be played.

Re: Story: Kamloops man charged with strangling cat: “This is such a sad world we live in when we have to resort to this type of treatment of our pets. “This type of cruelty should have very stiff repercussions to the abuser. It’s time the laws were harsher!” —posted by Jenny Mead

Laura Kalina of the Kamloops Food Policy Council — and hungry Kamloopsians — are applauding the city for creating a public orchard in Riverside Park.

Public produce a prize for all Editor: Congratulations to the City of Kamloops’ planning and parks, recreation and cultural services departments for developing and planting an amazing public orchard between the Rotary Bandshell and Heritage House in Riverside Park. The plantings include Saskatoon berry, plum, pear, English walnut, butternut and other fruit and berries, with the produce available for public picking. A special thank you to United Way Success By 6 Program for its financial contribution to this project.

The Lorne Street corridor is only one location where our city has demonstrated innovative leadership toward food security and urban agriculture. The front of city hall and MacDonald Park also contain public produce — food planted for anyone to pick and enjoy. Food security is everyone’s concern and we are grateful to see our city continue to act with this priority in mind. Laura Kalina Kamloops Food Policy Council

Are we getting our money’s worth? Editor: The Valleyview bike path was only four-and-a-half times over budget. Maybe city councillors deserve a raise for not bringing in the bike path five times over the budgeted cost. In all seriousness, they don’t deserve raises for that. Heads should roll as someone royally screwed up. Maybe I will bid a dollar on the next contract and finish

$5.8 million over budget. It would be a good deal for me, but not for the taxpayer. Why don’t city councillors implement a bike registry and bike licensing so stolen bikes, law breakers and bikers who run down seniors on the sidewalks can be identified. Motorists pay licensing fees to pay for roads, so why don’t cyclists pay to have bike paths? City councillors

already make more than the average tax payer. Some make $36,000 (with regional-district duties factored in). With a third of that tax-free, they make more than $36,000 a year — closer to $40,000 or so. That works out to almost $40 an hour for a 20-hour week, 52 weeks a year. Are we getting our money’s worth? Jay Barlow Kamloops

Editor: Old news is exactly that. I wish Mayor Peter Milobar also has his salary hiked for all of the City of Kamloops functions he, his wife and his daughters attend and support on their own personal family time. It’s about time Kamloops city council finally decided to address the issue of being underpaid in comparison to almost every other city council. I thank our city council for all of its “donated” time, extra phone calls, emails received, repeat meetings and true patience to sit in a warm, stuffy, boring room, in order to represent what is best for me and the beautiful twin-river city in which I was born. It’s an odd experience to witness Kamloopsians mentioning that almost each council member has their own business or high-profile vocation. I can just imagine the balancing talents mayor and council (and their families) all must possess in order to work full-time jobs in conjunction with being an acting full-time elected official. I was raised to believe in gratitude. It must be time to clean up our own backyards, water our own flowers and keep ourselves busy. Marcus Mather Kamloops

Wedded to another successful swap in 2014 Editor: Thank you to Kamloops This Week, B100 and the Plaza Hotel for stepping up as a sponsor of a new community event — the Wedding Wears Swap. We had previous brides selling to new brides. Merchants also took the opportunity to blow out some of their overstock items. This event took place on June 9 and, considering it was for the first time, it was a great success. Great appreciation also goes out to all who participated, donated and came to shop. It was a lot of fun and there were many amazing deals to be had. I had a lot of very positive feedback for putting on such an event and for the experience visitors had that day. Brides who are getting married this summer and fall are encouraged to save their decor and other wedding-related items to sell at the next Wedding Wears Swap, set for Jan. 12, 2014, which will also include grad and formal-wear consignments. The benefactor of the event was the Marjorie Snowden Memorial Hospice House and we are so happy to be able to support their cause. Judy Basso Judy Basso Events & Decor Kamloops

Sa-Hali students crossed bridges, literally and figuratively, this year during their adventure-tourism class.

Sa-Hali’s ‘hidden curriculum’ By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER

A group of 18 students have returned from a challenging three-day trip to Mount Robson a little stronger, a little wiser and, in some cases, a little kinder. In 1997, Sa-Hali secondary teacher Peter Findlay created an adventure-tourism course for Grade 12 students — and it became an instant hit, filling up each year.

The program runs for one semester, typically from winter until spring, allowing students to take advantage of sports in various seasons. The students this year have experienced everything from cross-country skiing to boating to rock climbing. “It really teaches them to reconnect with nature and get them back outside,” Findlay said. “It is kind of our hidden curriculum.”

Findlay ensures his students learn to respect the environment through various lessons during which he stresses the “caretaker concept.” “They learn environmental ethics,” he said. “I make sure they are aware of their environment and how important it is to protect.” As a result, each student learns minimalimpact camping and how to tread softly. Even while travelling in groups of 20, they are taught to leave little or no evidence of their presence. Findlay tries to keep the course as current as possible by following trends in the tourism industry. He works closely with Thompson Rivers University’s adventuretourism program, allowing him to alter the course to fit what is relevant and rent equipment for which he could not otherwise budget. While Findlay hopes students find an activity they will continue to enjoy after they graduate, his goal isn’t to force a career on them. “It is to expose them to new things and show them just how much they can accomplish,” he said. Findlay shows students everything the Kamloops area has to offer within a short distance — and what they are able to do within a short time span. Each class is about 70 minutes, so activities need to be situated close to the school. Sa-Hali secondary’s

location is perfect as it is close to the Tournament Capital Centre, a rockclimbing wall, hiking trails, cross-country skiing trails and much more. By getting students to try various activities, Findlay said, they are being forced to learn new skills while stretching their comfort zones. When it comes to grading the class, Findlay doesn’t take the typical approach. “It is not about being the best at everything — the best skier, the best rower. It is about how you grow, the effort you put in and how much you were able to take out of it in the end,” Findlay said. The program’s highlight is a three-day overnight trip to Mount Robson, which wraps up the year. Students are able to hike for three days in the shadow of the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. During the trip, Findlay does not allow electronics, noting society is too connected to gadgets. “They do not take their cellphones, iPods or any other tech devices, leaving them with no distractions from the nature,” he said. Findlay said most of his students have never experienced such a trip, explaining the biggest thing holding students back is that they don’t think that they can accomplish a task. X See STUDENTS A11

COVER PAGE STORY

Students learn to challenge themselves X From A10

Whether it is a psychical or mental challenge, Findlay believes he has succeeded if students walk away from the course with a sense of pride in what they were able to do. “It allows them to learn more about themselves, what they can do and how they can challenge themselves,” he said. Student Leah Perry said the course has taught her plenty. Before enrolling in the course, Leah said, she was not very good at sports,

but enjoyed being active. The adventure-tourism class showed Leah she could do so without needing to slam dunk a basketball or notch a hat trick. While Leah was interested in the course, she conceded to having some major doubts. “I didn’t think I could carry a backpack for 10 kilometres, let alone hike for 50 kilometres.” After accomplishing more than she thought was possible, Leah said she feels proud of herself. Such is the reaction Findlay gets from many of the students.

While they are challenged through each activity in the course, it is the Mount Robson trip where Findlay truly sees his students grow. “They experience something amazing and it is all thanks to their own hard work,” he said. “They are moved by the clean water, air and natural sounds that surround them.” Students said the bond created is deep. “I learned more about everyone in three days than I have in five years,” said student Trevor Purpur. They were able to

help one another and provide support and guidance where needed. Despite eating bagged and freeze-dried food, going without a shower for days, sleeping in a

tent without a bed or heat — and sometimes in a wet sleeping bag — students felt a little dismal about returning to civilization. “I looked at my cell-

phone and thought that I didn’t even want to use it and just put it away,” said student Natalie Metz. A group of students is planning a return trip to Mount Robson in August

and are hoping to bring family and friends— and, possibly, their future children — back to the very spot they stood during their final year of high school.

Tickets to ride key in homelessness battle A transit ticket might not seem like a key to alleviating homelessness, but Charlene Eden has seen the difference a ride on public transit can make. “We have four young men under 25 who ended up in the shelter, had jobs, but couldn’t get to work,” the Canadian Mental Health Association’s shelter manager in Kamloops told city council this week. Emergency transit tickets, provided to the shelter by the United Way, got the men to work until they could collect their first paycheque, Eden said. All four now have permanent housing. “Those extra bus tickets are the difference between more people getting housed, more people getting jobs,” she said. Eden and Danalee Baker, the United Way’s directory of community

impact, were at council to ask the city to increase by 1,000 adult bus passes and 300 student and senior passes the number of tickets it donates each year through its Emergency Transportation Assistance Program. The extra passes bring the city’s annual emergency-bus ticket contribution to 7,660 adult tickets and 1,020 student and senior tickets. They cost the city about $2,200, bringing the total cost for the program to just under $15,000. Baker said the number of organizations getting tickets from the United Way is growing, as is the need for tickets. Councillors agreed, agreeing to the request unanimously. Coun. Tina Lange suggested also automatically increasing the

number of tickets the city donates to the program each year, “so they’re not

LOCAL VIEWS

Who’s the real bully? I

t seems that at least two of our own local fundamentalist Christians did not take kindly to my previous column and responded with some pretty vindictive, ad hominem attacks on me. They called me, among other things, a bully. Now, bullying is the use of force or coercion to abuse or intimidate others. The behaviour can be habitual and usually involves an imbalance of social or physical power. Since I was simply pointing out some facts regarding the Christian faith and what kind of nastiness it can lead to, I was quite surprised my critical comments were construed to be bullying. However, a close look at the fictional god of the Old Testament reveals some very strong bully-like characteristics indeed. In fact, his true believers are terrified of him. Here are just a few examples my critics may wish to check in their own copy of the Bible. I sincerely hope they don’t follow his example in their own lives. Look out kids, swingers and gays, he’s after you. From Leviticus: (20:9) “If anyone curses his father or mother, he must be put to death.” (20:10) “If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, with the wife of his neighbour, both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death.” (20:13) “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death.” Now that is pretty intimidating. But, wait — it gets worse. Here’s how to treat your enemies: From Deuteronomy: (7:1-2) “When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show

BILL LIGERTWOOD Rational THOUGHTS them no mercy.” (20:10-17) “When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. “If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. “When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. . . . “This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby. However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything

that breathes. “Completely destroy them, the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, as the Lord your God has commanded you.” And here’s what to do if your daughter has had pre-marital sex: (22:20-1) “If . . . no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house.” Ouch! This is one scary dude. I wouldn’t like to bump into him in a dark alley. Mind you, how could I? He’s a figment of my critics’ imagination. But, like many bullies — real and imaginary — he over-reacts, wouldn’t you say? Here’s a classic example, from Exodus: (35:2) “For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death.” To hell with employ-

ment standards! Don’t mess with this guy. In fact, Richard Dawkins, in The God Delusion, rightly observed that the “God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” Remember, too, that the equally imaginary god of the Koran is no Mr. Nice Guy either. He can also get pretty abusive when it suits him. So, who’s the bully here? Me, for writing a newspaper column? Or, is it the mythical god who is supposedly ultimately responsible for the verses quoted above having been written? Remember — there are many more such examples. Don’t take my word for it; read your Bible and your Koran. These guys are mean. They’re the big bullies on the block and should be treated as such.

RECYCLE

TNRD announces date for Pritchard eco-depot The long-awaited Pritchard eco-depot will be opening sooner rather than later. Thompson-Nicola Regional District representatives Peter Hughes and Jamie Vieira announced to Chase council this week the expected opening date for the depot is set for July 30. “It has been a long time coming,” Hughes said. With the opening of the new waste-management site comes a few changes. Cash will no longer be accepted at the site; however, credit and debit will. Charge accounts can also be

arranged for some businesses. Those who do not want to use the debit or credit options can opt for eco-cards instead, which will continue to be sold at the village office, the Pritchard Store and Safety Mart. Another big change is how fees will be applied. Instead of attendants estimating the weight of each load, scales will now be used. This method, Hughes said, will be much more fair. He noted that, before, people were paying $4 for four bags of garbage. “We are finding now

that people are looking at $2.50 to $3,” he said. “On the other hand, those who were paying $10 for a pickup truck load are going to be paying a little more.” Vieira said they were receiving a number of legitimate complaints from their current setup; however he ensured this method will be a fair alternative. “Everyone who goes over the scale is weighed the same way,” he said, noting the scales used are the same type used on Canadian highways. “It has the majority of our customers saving money.” The new eco-depot

will also have additional staff running the show. One will be stationed at the weigh-in station while the other will be out on the grounds. The new depot will be accepting electronic waste and paint for recycling as of July 30 and will be taking household hazardous waste at a later date. This will not begin until sometime down the road, Hughes said, after more information on the infrastructure required to handle such waste is gathered. While the wastemanagement site is capable of sorting yard brush already, in the future it will also accept

lumber for chipping and recycling. There will also be a noticeable increase in the storage-space capacity for all the items they already accept. “In terms of operation and safety, there is an overall increase in efficiency,” he said. While at the current

dump site users must throw their garbage over or through a railing to get it in the bins, the new site has a different method. There will also be a tipping floor found in the new depot, which will allow users to simply dump their garbage on the floor.

A share shed was also noted as one of the upcoming additions. The site itself features three buildings — the scale building, the recycling building and the garbage building. Entrance to the site will be off of Martin Prairie Road and will feature increased access.

GORDON KEEFER HONEY It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gordon Keefer Honey on Wednesday, June 19 at the age of 69, with loved ones at his side, in Kamloops after a battle with cancer. Gordon is survived by his loving wife Debbie, sons Rod and Tyler (Amanda) grandchildren Jack, Henry and Abbey, his two sisters Karen (Clayton) and Gail and many extended family members and friends. Born in Salmon Arm in 1943, to Jack and Marjory Honey, Gordon had a wonderful childhood on the family apple farm where, at an early age, he discovered his passion for fishing in the creek near the farm. His sisters remember him coming home from fishing all day with hooks and little minnows in his pocket. The family moved to Kamloops in 1954, where he lived until his passing. Shortly after high school Gordon joined The Western Canada Youth Theater under the tutelage of Tom Kerr and travelled with the cast to many locations, including England. He was with CFJC television for 27 years, going from switcher to operations manager. After leaving the station, he returned to his first love, fishing. Gord became a professional fly fishing guide in 1993, with his wife Debbie as a partner. He became a well known, respected guide with clients from all over Canada and the US, as well as appearing on numerous fly fishing shows. He hosted his fly fishing segment which appeared on CFJC. Gordon also published a book on fly fishing with Lac Le Jeune neighbour and fishing enthusiast, Kenneth Strand. He and Debbie enjoyed travelling to exotic fishing destinations such as Cuba, Mexico and the Bahamas, never a vacation without a fly rod. After moving from Lac Le Jeune to town 8 years ago, he and Debbie also took up tennis at the Kamloops Tennis Association, where he also volunteered to clean courts and even play as a sub for the morning ladies when they were short a player. He had a wonderful life doing what he loved to do. His greatest passions were his family, and fishing! Debbie and the family would like to thank the nurses of 5 South (Pediatrics) who took such wonderful care of both Debbie and Gordon during his time in hospital. It seemed so appropriate for him being in pediatrics since he could be such a big kid. Thank you also to Doctors 0ttem, H. Ritenburg, Avanessian, Gabriel, Montgomery and Rollheiser, the staff at the Hospice and the staff at Pratt’s Pharmacy. Extra special thanks to our friends and his clients who came to visit, in particular his long time friend, Doug Smith. At his request there will not be a funeral, but a celebration of life “cocktail party” in September. In lieu of flowers, we would ask that donations be made to the Kamloops Hospice , 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, BC V2E2S9, in his name.

NICOLA ANTONIO CALFA On Thursday, June 20th, 2013 Nick was suddenly taken from us at his home in Kamloops, B.C. at the age of 72 years. He was born May 4, 1941 in Pittarella, Cosenza, Italy. Nick spent most of his working life with the CN Rail, and, never being one to sit idle, continued his work with the railways in the U.S. after retiring from the CN. Nick was extremely proud of his children and grandchildren. In whatever sport, interest or hobby they took up, Nick was their biggest fan. Nick found his greatest enjoyment in his amazing garden. Nick will forever be missed by his son, Nick Calfa (Colleen), grandsons Nicola, Kyle and Dallas; his son, Carlo Calfa (Dawn), grandsons, Darnell, Damon, Daylen, Dawson, granddaughters Danielle, Danae; his daughter Lisa Calfa. Also left to cherish his memory are his brother Valerio Calfa (Moyra), nieces Maria and Crista, sister Josie Gigliotti (Quinto), nephews Dario, Dino, Davide and numerous family members and friends. He was predeceased by his parents, Maria and Carmelo Calfa. Prayers will be recited on Friday, June 28, 2013 at 7:00 pm in the Holy Family Catholic Parish, 2797 Sunset Drive. The Reverend Father Andrew L’Heureux will celebrate the Funeral Mass in the church on Saturday, June 29 at 11:00 am. Entombment will follow at Sage Valley Mausoleum, Kamloops. Should friends desire, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in memory of Nick would be appreciated. Service arrangements entrusted to Schoening Funeral Service, Kamloops, BC 250.374.1454.

REMEMBER Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can go no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay. Remember me when no more day by day You tell me of our future that you planned: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve: For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad.

Canada Day Classic returns By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE KAMLOOPS RIVERDOGS have not won the Daley and Company Canada Day Classic since hosting it for the first time in 2001. Might the 13th annual running of the midget AAA baseball squad’s home tournament be Lucky No. 13? “Who knows, maybe this is the year,” RiverDogs head coach Sean Wandler told reporters at Norbrock Stadium on Tuesday, June 25. “We’ve come close in other years. We’ve lost in the final and been in the semis at least twice over the years. So it’s not like we’ve been totally out of the mix. “It just seems we can’t completely finish it off.” The Classic, featuring 10 teams, runs from Friday, June 28, to Monday, July 1, at Norbrock and the Canada Games Field. Kamloops has not had its greatest season, sitting at 10-15 in B.C. Minor Baseball Association play with less than 20 games left on the regular-season slate. The RiverDogs are younger this year, with just four graduating players, compared to last year’s squad which graduated eight. In 2012, though, with a team expected to fare well at the Classic, the Dogs went 1-3 and fin-

ished fifth in their pool. Kamloops won silver in 2011 and went on to become provincial champions. Wandler and the Dogs are confident their record this season does not properly represent their ability on the field. “I’m sure we’re not expected to win as much as we were last year but, with the team we have, we can beat anyone on any given day,” said Kyle Pouncy, one of three team captains. “Our record doesn’t speak to what we are. Injuries have been killing us and, at grad, you miss some of your better players. Everyone is going to be going for this tournament and we’re going to have a full squad.” Not hoisting the trophy for 13 years is much less a reflection of poor play from the

RiverDogs than it is of strong play from great competition. The tournament is attended without fail by some of the best midget AAA teams from B.C. and Alberta, with last year’s champions, the Sherwood Park Dukes, returning this weekend to defend their title. In Pool A are the RiverDogs, the Langley Jr. Blaze, Calgary Pro Baseball Force, the Sherwood Park Athletics and the Edmonton Cardinals. The Dukes, the Red Deer Braves, the Spruce Grove Sox, the Prince George Knights and the Cloverdale Spurs comprise Pool B. Red Deer, Cloverdale (which sits atop the B.C. midget AAA standings at 27-2) and Langley are new this year to the tournament. The Classic — a money tournament

with a $1,250 purse — is always used as a measuring stick for the Dogs as they head down the home stretch toward the provincial championship in August. Wandler said his team has been plagued by one-inning collapses, which have often been the difference between winning and losing. “We’ve beaten the top teams at least once, like Tri-City, Cloverdale and Vancouver,” Wandler said. “On the flip-side, we’re losing to teams below us in the standings. “We have to be consistent and minimize big innings.” Pouncy, Jordan Kealty, Steven Rintoul and Tyler Cousineau are the graduating Kamloops players who have one last chance to please the Norbrock faithful and break the 13-year drought.

Winning the tournament might give the current RiverDogs bragging rights over teams past, but Kealty said the victory would be shared with those who fell short in previous years. “Whenever you’re a RiverDog, you’re always a RiverDog,” Kealty said. “You’re part of that win.”

Blazer draft hopefuls By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

There are at least two Kamloops Blazers who will be paying close attention to the NHL Entry Draft, which gets underway at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on Sunday, June 30. Forwards JC Lipon and Cole Ully both cracked the top 100 North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s latest rankings. Lipon will be holed up inside the garage of his family’s cabin at Echo Lake, Sask., watching the draft with

a group of friends and family. “We have two La-Z-Boys in there and a 46-inch TV,” said Lipon, a Regina product. “I’m kind of anxious to get it over with and start planning around that.” He is expecting to go somewhere in the middle of the draft, hoping to go as early as Round 2, but prepared to be selected in the later rounds. “Wherever I go is where I go,” Lipon said. “Somewhere in the second, third or fourth would be nice.” Lipon, ranked 96th in the mid-season rank-

ings, had jumped up to 83rd when the final list was released in April. He said six NHL teams have shown serious interest in drafting him, but declined to name the teams. Ully, whose family is safe and sound in Calgary, vaulted seven spots from his midseason ranking to finish in the 92 slot. At last June’s draft in Pittsburgh, Tim Bozon of the Blazers was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the third round and teammate Colin Smith was picked by the Colorado Avalanche in Round 7.

WHL season starts with Interior showdown The Kamloops Blazers will open the 2013-2014 WHL season on home ice, hosting the Kelowna Rockets on Friday, Sept. 20, at Interior Savings Centre. Kamloops will play four games in September, 12 in both October and November, 11 in December, 13 in January, 13 in February and seven in March. The Blazers will play two afternoon home games this season, hosting the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Oct. 14, Thanksgiving Monday. The Blue and Orange will host the Tri-City Americans on Monday, Feb. 10, B.C.’s Family Day. Both games get underway at 2 p.m. To purchase tickets, call ticketing and promotions co-ordinator Missy Cederholm at 778-471-8068 or email her at mcederholm@blazerhockey.com.

The conversation must run dry after 10 hours on the course together but, if there is any awkward silence, it’s a small price to pay for a great cause. Four Sun Rivers Golf Resort employees are participating in the PGA of B.C. Golfathon for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), which will see them hit the links from about 4:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 27. “You know when you catch a second or a third wind throughout a day?” Sun Rivers head pro Michael Chmilar asked KTW. “Well, we do that all day.” Chmilar will be joined by three coworkers — associate golf pro Shannon McGeady, apprentice golf pro Cody Jackson and guest-

services supervisor Kirk Laukkanen. The foursome is counting on donations from the public to reach its fundraising target of $6,000. “We’ve put more initiative into it this year, with more stuff going on throughout the day,” said Chmilar, noting the golfathon has raised between $3,500 and $4,500 in years past. “Our suppliers have really helped us out.” There will be three golf gift baskets up for grabs, each worth about $800. One of the baskets will be awarded to the winner of a putting contest, which takes place on Thursday between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on the practice green below Hoodoos. It costs $5 for two putts. The other two swag baskets will be won on Hole 6 between 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.,

when separate men’s and women’s closest-tothe-pin contests will be held. The $25 entry fee includes a tax receipt. There is also a holein-one prize of $10,000, with the winner claiming $7,500 and the rest being donated to the cause. The ace-maker will also receive a $2,500 tax receipt from the ALS Society of B.C. “It’s exciting when you start going and people start cheering you on and they bring you coffee or beer or a Booster Juice,” said Chmilar, a golfathon participant for the past three years. “We don’t sit down for lunch because you won’t get back up. We have music speakers on the cart to keep us pumped up.” The golfathon has been a 24-hour affair in recent years, but organizers are cutting back this time around.

“We just realized that it was tough to keep people engaged with what we were doing, especially between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.” There is another way to pitch in to help the cause this year. Sun Rivers will be taking action on three prop bets — how many holes the group will play, how many pars will be made and how many birdies will be carded. It costs $5 per guess or $10 for three guesses. The person who comes closest to the number in each category receives 25 per cent of the pot, with the rest of the money going to the ALS Society. “It’s all for a good cause,” Chmilar said. “We’ll be out there all day and it’s great to see people pledge and donate.”

Making the best of a bad situation TRU student’s essay on Japanese-Canadian internment earns inaugural local-history scholarship By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Before he passed away earlier this year, Peter Grauer, as head of the Kamloops Antiques, Collectibles and Heritage Society, formed a scholarship at Thompson Rivers University looking to promote local history. He wanted the $500 annual award to go to the student who wrote the best local-history essay each year. Grauer died before he could see the award doled out, but members of the society were on hand at a meeting earlier this month to present thirdyear TRU student Kayla Holtslag with a cheque and plenty of admiration. Holtslag, 23, isn’t even a history student. She’s in science, hoping to go on to medical school. But, the Merritt resident wowed Prof. Tina Block with a paper in her history class that was deserving of the award. “My interest was sparked learning

‘The internees were determined to take whatever measures possible to improve their situation’ By Kayla Holtslag THOMPSON RIVERS UNIVERSITY editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

In December of 1941, the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor rapidly changed the existence of Japanese-Canadians living in British Columbia. The Canadian government quickly acted to remove all 22,000 people of Japanese race — alien or citizen — from the areas along the coast of B.C. They were moved to remote internment camps and road-building projects throughout the Interior of B.C., sugar-beet farms in Manitoba and Alberta and prisoner-of-war camps in Ontario. People lost their businesses, properties and livelihoods in this mass evacuation and their lives were quickly turned upside down. The road-work projects in B.C.

included the Hope-Princeton Highway, the Revelstoke-Sicamous Highway and the Blue River-Yellowhead Highway. The internment camps were mostly placed throughout the Kootenays in Slocan, Greenwood, Kaslo, New Denver and Sandon. There was also one in Tashme between Hope and Princeton. My sources are based on accounts from the internment and road-building camps throughout B.C. During this devastating time, JapaneseCanadians strived to maintain a sense of normalcy in their daily lives and actually found happiness in their surroundings; they turned internment camps into internment communities. Many of the Japanese-Canadians who were forced to evacuate the B.C. coast were second-generation, born and raised in

Canada; some had even fought for Canada in the First World War. They were forced to leave behind their homes and much of their belongings; most never had their properties returned. They felt betrayed by a place that they considered home and faced new levels of racism and hatred. Despite the complete uprooting of their lives, families in internment camps did not simply retreat into the wilderness of B.C. to live a destitute existence, and this is apparent in the writings of internees and their relatives. As sociologist Pamela Sugiman stated: “At the same time that narrators describe these years as filled with hardship, turmoil, and racial injustice, they also speak of happy times, kindness, and the sweetness of life.” In her oral history research with secondand third-generation Japanese-Canadians,

Sugiman recognized that the internees spoke not only of the hardships but also of the positive memories. These resilient people incorporated many of their most important activities, traditions and values into their daily lives, despite their undesirable living conditions. Thousands of people were exiled to abandoned ghost towns in the B.C. Interior, where they often lived in tents until small, 28-by-14-foot shacks were built which two families would share, or where they moved into hastily renovated abandoned hotels. Without power, it was very difficult to keep these shacks warm, as Yukiharu Misuyabu recalls: “The walls of our shack were one layer of thin wooden board covered with two-ply paper sandwiching a flimsy layer of tar.” X See GROWING B2

Growing crops was ‘dreadful, back-breaking labour’ in camps X From B1

“There was no ceiling below the roof. In the winter, moisture condensed on the inside of the cold walls and turned to ice.” In the road-work camps, they often lived in rows of boxcars with bunks inside and a single potbellied stove inside for heat. However, in the midst of unfathomable confusion and discomfort, the evacuees wasted no time in establishing some remnants of a normal existence in these shanty towns. Since the evacuation began with small areas outside Vancouver, many times entire communities would be moved together to one of the ghost towns. This would have provided some familiarity and comfort as people would not have to adapt to new neighbours in addition to new surroundings.

As Mary Taylor wrote in A Black Mark: The JapaneseCanadians in World War II, “The Japanese sense of community remained strong and people joined together surprisingly quickly.” When men returned from road-work projects, they would often continue the kinds of leadership roles that they held at home prior to the war. This would have provided a feeling of security for people who felt displaced and confused. Japanese women’s associations were formed to help internees cope with some of the problems they faced during this difficult time. Organizations like these show how the Japanese pulled together and helped one another; they endeavoured to avoid letting the disruption of their lives caused by the evacuation define how

they would live. While many have negative memories of this time, I also found evidence that many people chose to focus on things that made them happy during such a tumultuous time in their lives. Regardless of their living conditions, the internees were determined to take whatever measures possible to improve their situation. Outside their small shacks, women planted gardens so they could have fresh vegetables to feed their families. “We planted lettuce, radishes and beans,” stated Kaoru Ikeda in her diary. She also recalled digging up “chrysanthemums, trefoil, and coltsfoot” from her garden in Vancouver and transplanting them in Slocan, where her family had been moved. The ground in Slocan was rough and not suitable for a gar-

den; she wrote “it was dreadful back-breaking labour,” even with the help of the others in her family. This shows the determination these people had to make life better, even if it was terrible hard work; it was worth it to feel some comforts of a real home. In her diary, Ikeda also spoke of picking huckleberries in the woods and making jam and how much she loved being in the beautiful mountains.

The internees found joy in simple things; many mentioned the beauty of their surroundings, it seems to have helped them forget the ugliness of war and the racism to which they were subject. The Japanese community loved baseball; before the war there was a famous Japanese baseball team in Vancouver, the Asahi, who were absolutely beloved by JapaneseCanadians in B.C..

Baseball provided outlet for interred Japanese-Canadians in camps across B.C. X From B2

At the advent of war, the team was dispersed like the rest of the community, which was devastating for the men whose lives revolved around the sport and for those fans who loved the team so much. In the film Sleeping Tigers: The Asahi Baseball Story, some members of the original team and some die-hard fans expressed the profound feelings of sadness they felt when the team was broken up. One former player recalled crying the day he realized that the team would never play together again. However, in many of the new internment communities in the internment and roadwork camps, especially if Asahi players were there, residents formed their own baseball teams as a way to pass the time and have fun. These players would have experienced the sport in a way like never before; now it was an escape from the hardships surrounding them. George Funamoto remembered what a great release baseball was in his memoirs of the Hope-Princeton Highway camp. He was in Camps

No. 1 and No. 2 and recalls that all the camps had baseball teams and would have games within the camps but also between them. The camp would provide them a vehicle for transport and the men looked forward to these games against one another very much. Funamoto recalled how “it was a good outlet for our frustrations and anxieties and it was all in good fun.” He said when the men got back from a game, all they talked about was baseball. Funamoto also referenced the famous Asahi players; he said a Vancouver Sun columnist asked if there were any former players, living in the road camps there because he wanted to bring over a team to play them. When told there were no former players but only a former team manager, the columnist insisted they have a game anyway. Funamoto said that game would never be forgotten because it meant so much to the men. His words regarding the game show the emotion: “Here, in the midst of a war and our incarceration in the road camps because of it,

these local ball players, through the fame of the ‘Asahis’ came to play us, unmindful of the turmoil, discrimination and hatred towards us by most British Columbians and, in the spirit of true sportsmanship, paid tribute to a great ball team, here on the ball ground of a Princeton road camp. Amazing!” There are many other activities about which internees wrote during their time in the camps.

when we all refreshed ourselves.” He also wrote that, in the winter time, they would flood the baseball field and go skating, even though very few of them could afford skates. There was even one internee who had some experience skiing and had a pair of skis. Funamoto said “the snow around Princeton was powder snow, excellent for skiing.” He remembered that they all tried it once but were not very successful.

In a video produced by his son to record his memoirs, Minoru remembered that New Denver, the internment camp to which his family was sent, was by a lake and a baseball field. He remembered that he learned to swim there. George Funamoto remembered that just a short distance from the road camp was a deep pool in the river which was their swimming hole. He recalled that “many were the days

Still, a mother from Vancouver whose family went to Greenwood insisted on bringing a complete set of dishes, including all the plates and utensils that would be required to serve a traditional Japanese meal. The children would pretend to have lavish Japanese meals and reminisce about festive occasions from the past.

To only speak of the hardships that JapaneseCanadians endured in B.C. during the war is to ignore that they were strong, resilient people who relished simple pleasures and found happiness in a time of intense sadness and angst. Many internees recalled bringing certain important domestic possessions along to the internment camps. This was not easy since the baggage allowed for adults could weigh no

Another woman remembered her mother insisting on bringing her nicest table cloth and her father’s chef’s knife. One woman even recalled her mother wanting to bring her stove: “She thought we should have a stove because we really didn’t know where we were going.” The only item that authorities agreed was necessary and should not be included in the weight of the baggage was sewing machines, so many women brought those. JapaneseCanadian women would have felt that these items were necessary to continue to care for their families, the way they had always done, in the internment camps where they may not have such things. In reading the memoirs and diaries of Japanese-Canadian internees, another common theme was how the holidays were always an exciting and special time in the internment communities. Kaoru Ikeda wrote in her diary about Christmas of 1942, when her family went into the mountains to find a Christmas tree. She said that even though

Like before internment, schooling a big priority X From B4

In a letter to his wife on November 2, 1943, Kensuke Kitagawa said: “I feel a little tipsy. We had a Japanese meal with turkey and two or three drops of soy sauce. It is impossible to describe how tasty it was.” During the holidays, the internees would get to enjoy the kinds of lavish meals they would have prepared at home. Kaoru Ikeda wrote about making sushi and miso soup for New Year’s: “For the last dinner of the year I made miso soup with my homemade miso that I opened for the first time.” Traditions would have been especially important to families that had been displaced and separated; they would have provided a way to feel more connected to the memories of the pre-war days. Another very important element of their pre-war lives that was quickly incorporated into the new lives of the internees was schooling. Even in Hastings Park, where thousands

of people were literally residing in converted livestock pens, schooling took place. After her regular teaching job, a Japanese-Canadian teacher, Ms. Hyodo, would go out to Hastings Park and teach 261 students between Grade 1 and Grade 3. W.S McRae, an employee of the Vancouver School Board, was brought in by the B.C. Security Commission to supervise recreation and education at the holding centre. He trained teachers (high school and university students) to help teach the younger students and help Ms. Hyodo. When the evacuees were moved to the internment camps, Ms. Hyodo went to run the schools in the various communities with the help of an assistant, Ms. Hidaka, principals at the three larger schools, and assistant teachers in each community. Those assistant teachers were the newly trained high school and university students. Despite the rough start, lack of support from the government,

and the poor state of the buildings which served as schools, the schools eventually flourished. The internees formed parent-teacher associations which helped organize sports days and raise money to buy books and sporting equipment. The internees also formed student councils; they set up detention halls for students who misbehaved and also had punishments such as “washing windows, scrubbing desks, and snow clearing.” All of the schools had seasonal concerts. Some schools even produced school newspapers and had school songs. On all accounts these seem to have been similar to typical elementary schools where children gathered, learned and played together. It would be such a relief for worried parents that their children were able to attend school and live a somewhat normal daily life. This would keep them out of trouble and give them a better chance of being successful when they reentered society

after the war. The success of these schools is shown by the achievements of some former students. David Suzuki, a famous Canadian academic and environmental activist, attended a school at Bay Farm, one of the internment communities in the Slocan area. Other former students reported having no troubles entering public schools in Alberta after the war. It would seem that the hard work of Ms. Hyodo and her assistant teachers certainly paid off. Arthur Anstey, after looking into the success of the students when they moved on from the internment community schools, summed it up perfectly: “It is a pleasure, perhaps somewhat of a surprise, to testify to the genuine quality of the work that is being done, to the unstinting efforts of principals and class teachers, to the hearty co-operation of student-councils and senior pupils, and to the help given by the two supervisors and — in most loaclities — by the parents.

“Without this desirable spirit of ‘work-

ing together’ results would have been

meagre indeed.” X See INTERNEES B6

Internees ‘found joy’ in a very dark place X From B5

My research reveals that it is important to recognize all of the information held in the very personal memories of the JapaneseCanadians who lived through the mass evacuation during World War II. My approach was to work to understand every element of this historical time; I wanted to acknowledge the adversity endured by internees as well as their strength and resilience. Following the bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, the lives of JapaneseCanadians in B.C. were completely uprooted. Despite this, they endured and found ways to enjoy life in the most destitute of circumstances. By bringing important items that provided them with comfort, finding activities such as baseball or picking huckleberries to pass the time, celebrating holidays with their families and neighbours and sticking to their values of hard work, community living, and the importance of education, they made the best of their new reality. Arthur Anstey’s words apply to more than just the schools in the internment camps, when he stated that “without this desir-

able spirit of ‘working together,’ results would have been meagre indeed.” If the JapaneseCanadians had not band-

ed together and strived for more, they would certainly have had a “meagre” existence. Instead, these resilient people persevered

and managed to turn internment camps into internment communities and find joy by relishing the simple pleasures in life.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Move over Aries because someone new wants to share the spotlight for a little while.You may be reticent to give up the spotlight, but even the sun has to retire for the night.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Quiet contemplation can yield a few answers to the things you want to know, Scorpio.You often take for granted the silent moments that are offered.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, there’s a financial opportunity on the horizon and you just have to find out how to get in on the action. Scorpio may be able to lend some information this week.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, not every hour of the day needs to be packed with activity. Others won’t look to you as if you’re slacking off if you take some time to relax.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you’ll have to make the most of a situation because there’s nothing you can do this week to change the outcome. It may be a tough couple of days.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Obligations at home can take some time away from your “me” time, Capricorn. But that is the price you pay for being such an integral part of your family dynamic.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, take time to foster personal relationships, especially with a person you love dearly. There hasn’t been much time for romance, but now you can change the situation for the better.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, it takes you a little while to warm up to others, but once you do, you’ll find that you can be the best of friends and highly devoted. This week you prove this virtue.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 There is a monster task in front of you, Leo, and all you need is to muster the strength to begin it. Some words of encouragement from friends might do the trick.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, letting others do a lot for you may seem like a good idea at first, but it might just lead to problems down the road.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 A completely fresh perspective can shed light onto something that has been giving you headaches,Virgo. Take the opportunity to reestablish goals, and you’ll be on track. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you don’t have to prove yourself to anyone, so why are you always seeking someone else’s approval? Try thinking for yourself this week, and you may be surprised at the results.

WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS . . . ACK AROUND THE turn of the millennium, my third-ever published story was about to appear in the pages of Chicken Soup for the Grandparent’s Soul. It was short and sweet and included lemonade that was likely made from a mix. Today, a few hundred stories later, I’m stirring together a lemonade made with real lemons and a hint of green tea, while remembering a story that went something like this: “Don’t tell the others,” my grandfather said. “But, you and that other boy are my favourite.” “That other boy” was my sister, and we two girls were close to the youngest of our grandparents’ 27 grandchildren. Favourite because we lived with them for a time after I was born — and because theirs was our second home for many years to come. Back then, Grandpa would have done anything for me, but since love is all about the little things, he was always willing to busy himself with some project meant for my happiness. There was the doublebenched swing, crafted in his farm workshop, upon which I spent endless afternoons inhaling the scent of spring wildflowers while prairie clouds morphed from tempestuous oceans to families of waddling ducks to snow-crested mountain peaks — only as far away as my imagination made them. In the house, where my grandmother tended an oven that never went cold, I carried baskets full of kittens each spring, played tuneless melodies on an antique pump organ and felt safer than I ever have since.

B

DARCIE HOSSACK

Bon APPÉTIT Summer months meant that I could spend more time away from the boredoms of city life. Only a 20-minute drive from our home, we often made trips out to the farm. On one visit that was meant to be short, I soon lost track of time in the middle of a project. Using a red wagon, I had towed all the ingredients of a lemonade stand to the edge of my grandparent’s property, where a county road intersected a sprinkling of homes, and where other kids walked the dusty path to visit friends and family. I peddled my refreshments to the few people who passed by, counting the meager change. Only a few nickels into my day’s profits, my mother came to remind me of an dratted dentist appointment, one I knew I would not be permitted to miss. “But, who will sit at my lemonade stand?” I asked. “I guess you’ll have to pack it away until another day,” she said. Mournfully, I began to obey, replacing my hand-made sign, cups and pitchers into the wagon, All that was left were my table and chairs. Before I could collapse them, though, Grandpa came

Green tea lemonade 6 cups filtered water 8 green tea bags 3/4 cup granulated sugar 6 lemons

walking across the grass, with a stiffness reminding me my best friend was not my own age. He set the lemonade and glasses back on the table, seated himself in my chair and unfolded a newspaper. “It is a nice day for lemonade,” he said. “Hurry home.” When we returned later that afternoon, Grandpa was still at my post, the newspaper abandoned in favour of a needle and thread and some clothes in need of mending.

In the small box where I had begun to deposit my earnings was more change than could be accounted for had the entire village showed up for a drink. Together we sat by the road a little while longer. When Grandma called us in for supper, we dismantled our stand and walked back to the house.

Chef David Tombs takes the freshest local, organic & sustainable ingredients and crafts something truly remarkable.

Heat water in a kettle until just before boiling. In a heat-proof pitcher, pour water over tea bags and steep according to the manufacturer’s directions. Remove tea bags and gently squeeze excess liquid back into pitcher. Discard tea bags. Slice three lemons in half and, using a citrus press, squeeze juice into a strainer set over the mouth of the pitcher. (Add juice of another lemon or two if needed.) Stir sugar into mixture until dissolved. Thinly slice three more lemons and add to lemonade to steep. Refrigerate until chilled. Serve over plenty of ice, making sure to add a few lemon slices to each glass.

One Bad Son set to rock the Blue Grotto The Blue Grotto will be rocking on Thursday, July 4, but it will have nothing to do with Independence Day. One Bad Son, a Canadian rock band formed in Saskatoon in 2004, will play the Victoria Street club as part of a Western Canada tour. Their current single, It Ain’t Right, is in the Top 15 of the Canadian Active Rock charts and was the most-added song at Active Rock Radio leading into June. Earlier this year, One Bad Son opened for Buckcherry and their single Scarecrows hit No. 5 on the Canadian Active Rock charts. The band recently played three shows in Regina during the Juno Awards weekend as part of Junofest, including a gig opening for Juno-winners Monster Truck. One Bad Son is made up of lead vocalist Shane Volk, Adam Hicks on guitar, Adam Grant on bass and Kurt Dahl on drums. For more information, go to onebadson.com.

Konopaki is a faculty member at Emily Carr School of Art and Design in Vancouver, having previously taught at Keyano College in Fort McMurray. Neufeld lives near Armstrong and has had sessional teaching terms at universities across Western Canada. Since 2007, they have travelled to various locations in Canada to gain inspiration for their collaborative projects, so far having visited Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Newfoundland. The Kamloops Printmakers Society was formed in 2007 by a group of printmakers — mostly faculty and graduates of Thompson Rivers University — to share printmaking studio space and equipment. Members show their work locally, nationally and internationally. Everyone is welcome to attend the talk, which will take place at 7 p.m. at the society’s studio, 102B925 McMaster Way.

FAITH

Who keeps Canada — governments or God?

C

ANADA’S national anthem has a long history. First written by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier and Calixa Lavalee, O Canada became the national anthem on July 1, 1980, a hundred years after it was sung on June 24, 1980. Over the years, our anthem saw several English versions and revisions. The anthem we sing today is from the 1908 version by Judge Robert Stanley Weir. Weir’s version is an inspiring composition, yet few Canadians have ever heard what he intended to be the final verse. The words go like this: “Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer/ Hold our dominion within thy loving care/Help us to find, O God, in thee/A lasting, rich reward/As waiting for the better day/ We ever stand on guard/O Canada, glorious and free/O Canada, we stand

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH on guard for thee.” What an important message for our nation today. The good news is our “ruler supreme” still hears the humble prayers of His people and still desires to answer with His transforming power. When we sing the deeply spiritual words of the anthem (or read the prophetic words from Psalm 72:8 inscribed on the entryway to the Parliament Buildings), they present a stunning contrast to the moral degeneration and erosion of values we have witnessed in recent times. Current events on the

Hill can discourage us but, as people of faith, we must take heart because God is still at work. Most Canadians are law-abiding citizens. But, there are others who are fed up with the unfairness, corruption and unconcerned inefficiencies. They like the ring of the bell of freedom and want to hear the hammer of justice, but are tired of the prolonged intrusive bureaucracy. It is certainly true that the government that governs least governs best. That’s why Paul’s views on authorities and governments, depicted in the book of Romans, chapter 13, might surprise them. Speaking to the church at Rome, Paul said love is the only law we need. His prescription for a smooth relationship between government of the day and its citizens is based on a strange combination of officialdom

and love. What does love have to do with paying taxes or staying within speed limit on the road? Everything! Paul does not simply fill up space, but is serious to encourage the faithful to obey the civil government, not just as an eye-service, but whole-heartedly. Wherever there are people, there’s bound to be a government of some kind. To Paul, all governments are in power because God has put them there. This means all governments, despotic dictatorships included, are part of God’s plan and His permissive will. Tyrants, along with saints, carry out His purposes. Paul had still more reasons for his teaching on obeying civil powers. They apply just as readily today as they did in his time. For example, he knew no man can completely disassociate himself from

his community. Being a member of a society brings responsibilities as well as privileges. A man has duties to his nation as well as to his church, even if he does not agree with everything the government stands for or does. Controversy over governments — what kind, how much, how little — has raged since time began. But, there is little doubt about the necessity for it. Without the organization and protection of the state, we would all be forced to live by the law of the jungle, the survival of the strong and the vicious. But, perhaps Paul’s most important reason for counselling the church at Rome to support the government of the day was because he saw Rome as God’s tool for keeping the lid on an otherwise hopelessly explosive situation. He believed in using the peace that prevailed

during Rome’s rule, the pax Romana, to the advantage of the Gospel. As long as there was peace, Paul saw greater opportunity to spread the Gospel. In his mind, the Roman government was helping him to do his missionary work. For this reason, the wise Christian would always try to help, not hinder, the state. So Paul gives a refresher course on good citizenship in Romans 13: Obey the laws of the land, co-operate with the authorities, pay your taxes and give honour to high offices. The Christian citizen’s first question is not: What are my rights? Am I getting justice? His first concern is: Am I living by the law of love? The Christian who lives by the law of love does not see authorities as a threat. Nor does he see the imperfections or even gross errors within the

government as reasons to riot or demonstrate unlawfully. On the other hand, the Christian is not a bystander in the society. Actually, he should be in the thick of the battle for justice, morality and righteousness. But, the Christian operates with a different motive. He seeks justice for all, yes, but justice is primarily a negative concept based on avoiding or preventing the doing of wrongs to others. The law of love goes beyond justice. It seeks the positive doing of good to others. It is the only law a Christian needs. If we are looking for a life verse, we might consider Romans 13:14: “Ask the Lord to help you live as you should and don’t make plans to enjoy evil.” “God keep our land . . . ” Happy (blessed) 146th, Canada! narayanmitra@ hotmail.com
