If only this historic old oak tree could talk…

City hall staff given a ‘tweak’


If only that oak tree could talk, what stories it could tell. One of its earliest memories would be of being planted near Okanagan Lake at what is now the Cove Resort in West Kelowna in 1901 by the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, who went on to become King George V and Queen Mary of England. The planting was during a cross-country tour of Canada by the royal couple in October, in an attempt to help them “break free of the Euro-centric view of the world and see their British subjects in a global perspective,” according to the Royal B.C. Museum. Speculation is that the couple were waiting for the arrival of a sternwheeler to take them across the lake at the time, likely on the S.S. Aberdeen. It would have made regular stops at Gellatly. The Cove Resort is immediately adjacent to the historic Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park. It’s possible the royalty were headed to the Coldstream Ranch to visit with Lord and Lady Aberdeen. Decades later, the ancient oak gained the respect of current owner and builder of the new Cove Resort, Derek Trethewey, who now wants to dedicate the tree to the memory of his father, Edgar Alan Trethewey. He began his business career in a logging camp on Harrison Lake and went on to develop a business empire in forestry, construction, oil, mining and ranching in B.C. as well as becoming a philanthropist. He died in 2007. During construction of the resort, an arborist was hired to help ensure the historic tree was not damaged, even though it is quite close to the building and construction activity surrounded it. On Canada Day, at 10:30 a.m. Derek Trethewey will officially dedicate the historic oak tree to the memory of his father, and erect a plaque commemorating him. Another memory for the oak tree.


Five years after a major shake up at Kelowna City Hall that saw a total re-organization of how the civic bureaucracy operates, another major change has been made. City manager Ron Mattiussi has dropped the general manager system he put in place in 2008, where there existed a small executive team and a larger leadership team one level below that. “Over the last five years it became apparent the leadership team was too big and the executive team (general managers) was too small,” said Mattiussi. Now seven departments—some made up of a combination of what were, until last week, separate departments—will report directly to him, while a new group, called strategic services, will be formed and report to the city’s new deputy city manager Paul Macklem. Macklem, a former city finance department head and most recently Kelowna’s general manager of corporate services, returned to the city after

BCTF calls for vote on provincial bargaining due to ‘deteriorating conditions’ Tom Fletcher CONTRIBUTOR

The B.C. Teachers’ Federation is holding a member vote this week, seeking a mandate to reject “government interference” in province-wide bargaining. Outgoing BCTF presi-

dent Susan Lambert notified 40,000 public school teachers of the vote in a letter sent out Monday, a copy of which was obtained by Black Press. Teachers have until Friday to vote. “We need to send a strong message to government that teachers will not accept a 10-

year scheme to lock in another decade of deteriorating conditions,” Lambert wrote. “The ballot will read: ‘Do you support our bargaining team and their efforts to achieve a negotiated settlement, and oppose any government interference in the bargaining

process? Yes or No.’” The province-wide vote follows Monday’s

announcement by Education Minister Peter Fassbender that he has asked

for a “pause” in bargaining, to appoint a direct government negotiator

for province-wide issues with a goal of reaching a 10-year deal.

All-candidates meeting set for byelection riding Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Christy Clark is breaking with tradition. The B.C. premier, seeking a seat in the B.C. Legislature by running in the Westside-Kelowna byelection July 10, will do what none of her predecessors in the last 30 years did, participate in an all-candidates’ debate at the riding level. Clark will join the other seven candidates vying for the Westside-Kelowna seat in the debate slated for July 4 in Westbank. Clark agreed to participate Monday, as did NDP candidate Carole Gordon and B.C. Conservative Sean Upshaw. Independents Daylene Van Ryswyk, Silverado Socrates, Korry Zeplik, John Marks and Jag Bhandari of the B.C. Vision Party are also running in the byelection and are expected to participate. The debate is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at the Westbank Lions Community Hall and will be moderated by Andrew Glass of CBC Radio. For Clark, who plans to also participate in the Westside Daze Parade in Westbank this weekend, as well as serve Canada Day cake on Monday at both the West Kelowna and the Kelowna Canada Day celebrations (different cake-cut-

ting times), participation in the all-candidates’ debate will mark a change in tactics from her failed bid to retain her Vancouver-Point-Grey seat in the provincial election on May 14. There, she did not participate in any all-candidates’ debates in her riding during the campaign, instead focusing on her role as leader of the B.C. Liberal Party. She travelled the province drumming up support for other Liberal candidates. In the provincial election, she led her party to a surprise win, with the Liberals taking 49 of the 85 seats in the B.C. Legislature. The NDP took 34 and two independents elected. Clark lost the riding to the NDP’s David Eby by just over 1,000 votes. Clark did participate in two provincial leaders’ debates during the provincial campaign—one on TV and one on radio. Even before being sworn back into office, Westside-Kelowna victor, incumbent Liberal MLA Ben Stewart, who easily held the riding with 58 per cent of the vote, announced he was stepping down to let Clark run in a byelection here. Earlier this month, Stewart’s wife posted on Facebook that her husband was “asked to give it up for the good of the province so that Christy Clark could have an easy

win.” In the same post, she said she was “devastated” by that. “There’s something very wrong with this whole situation,” she wrote. Asked about that post. Stewart said Clark only asked him to give up the seat after he offered to step aside—as did several other successful Liberal candidates—and after she chose to accept his offer. He reiterated Clark did not ask him to give up his seat before he made the offer. Meanwhile, two of Clark’s challengers, Gordon and Upshaw, have said they are eager to debate Clark about local issues, with Gordon even accusing Clark of “ducking” her in a news released issued Monday just hours before Clark’s camp confirmed her participation in the July 4 all-candidates debate. Upshaw criticized Clark for not committing to participate in a debate sooner. Asked if she would participate, the premier said she wanted to and was willing to but it would depend on her schedule as premier. “I think she should have been out in front of this,” said Upshaw Tuesday. The debate in Westbank will be jointly hosted by the Kelowna and the Westbank and District chambers of commerce.

Kelowna ready to throw a festive birthday party for July 1 celebration Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna’s Canada Day celebration will be biggest ever this year, say organizers. Festivals Kelonwa executive director Renata Mills said there will be something for everyone: • five stages for entertainment • acts from several different countries performing • the addition of a strongman show and a spoken-word stage • the traditionally popular Canada Day birthday cake-cutting • Folkfest • Canada Day Spectacular concert by the Kelowna Pops Orchestra • a multitude of ethnic and Western food • entertainment geared to kids • a ball hockey tournament • the annual Great CanadianApple Bin Paint-in outside the art gallery • evening fireworks show. “We know how to throw a party in Kelowna,” said Mills during a news conference Tuesday held to outline the plans for the July 1 fes-

tival downtown. “Canada welcomes all cultures and celebrates diversity not conformity. That’s the genius of Canada and that’s why we celebrate our ‘Canadian-ness.’” Mills said this year organizers have not only added two more entertainment stages and several events, it has also branched out to include more of the downtown area, including Stuart and Kerry Parks in addition to its traditional home in Waterfront Park. She said the cost of putting on the event this year is about $100,000 but that includes sponsorships, in-kind donations as well as money from both the city and the federal government. This year, Ottawa is kicking in $15,000 toward the Canada Day party here, said MP Ron Cannan. New this year will be a strongman show, Team Extreme Warrior Force Okanagan, at Waterfront Park, which will perform in two shows, one at 12:30 p.m. and the other at 3 p.m. A youth stage will be set up in Stuart Park and the new spoken

word stage, called the Inspired Word Cafe, will be located in Kerry Park. Folkfest, which features entertainment and food from the many different cultures represented in Kelowna, will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year. It will take place in Prospera Place during the day and will be followed by the Kelowna Pops Orchestra concert at 7:30 p.m. The fireworks will go, weather permitting, at 10:30 p.m. off the beach at Waterfront Park. For a full listing of events and times, and a map of the site, go to Earlier in the day, at 12:30 p.m. the official Canada Day ceremonies will take place, including the cutting and distribution of the traditional Canada Day birthday cake. Representatives of Premier Christy Clark’s byelection campaign team said Clark will participate in the cake cutting. Mills said she expects the Canada Day celebrations here this year will likely be the biggest in the B.C. Interior.

wing moth appeared in orchards in the Similkameen in 2005 and today that area is generally infested with the borer that damages trees by feeding under the bark during the larvae stage. Entomologist Gary Judd, a research scientist at the Pacific Agrifood Research Centre in Summerland says he conducted a comprehensive study in orchards from the border to Salmon Arm last summer, trapping in every block of orchard. From those results, he created maps showing the pest’s presence and in what numbers. It shows that areas like Rutland and Ellison are pretty well infested with

the new pest, while there are few in West Kelowna and Mission, for instance. The maps are available on the website of the Sterile Insect Release program at: The extent of its spread was a surprise, he admits. He speculates they must move on vehicles or in trees that are being moved. “Soon it will be everywhere,” he says. In orchards where it hasn’t yet been identified, growers should monitor for it by hanging traps, and if there are 1 to 50 moths in a trap, mating disruption is available to control it. However, it’s better done by groups than by individual orchardists, he said, since it can easily fly to nearby orchards. When levels get too high, mating disruption is not very effective and growers should plan on

spraying the trunk of each tree with an approved pesticide to keep them under control. He says it’s difficult to assess the economic impact of the new pest. Some growers are very alarmed and they’re seeing the damage on their trees, but he says others aren’t seeing much damage. Ideally, prevention would be as simple as not bringing material in from an infested area, and it’s suspected that’s how the clearwing moth arrived in North America. At last Friday’s SIR board meeting in Kelowna, the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association appealed to the board for help in conducting area-wide monitoring and control. However, the board said it’s too late this year, but that if growers want assistance next year, they must let the SIR board

know by the end of this year. BCFGA general manager Glen Lucas said the industry is preparing a funding request to implement a three-year, area-wide pilot project, in cooperation with the SIR program to evaluate the effectiveness of mating disruption for control, so extra staff can be hired. He said growers are encouraged to examine area maps to see if it’s in their area, and to use mating disruption dispensers

to control it. Judd said backyard apple trees are just as susceptible, but he didn’t think they would become a source of re-infection of commercial orchards as is the danger with codling moth. In fact, he said backyard trees are generally not dwarf trees, and the big ones aren’t affected as much, so homeowners likely won’t notice damage from clearwing moth.

CUTTING THE ribbon to open the new 120-room

Four Points by Sheraton hotel across Highway 97 from Kelowna’s airport Wednesday were (left to right) Scott Duff of Starwood Hotels; MP Ron Cannan; Mayor Walter Gray; building owner and developer Ted Callahan; hotel general manger Thom Killingsworth; and Glen Squire, of Pacrim Hospitality Services Inc.

This project has been funded in part by Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.


New hotel opens by airport Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna has 120 more hotel rooms to offer visitors. And the city, airport officials and representatives of Kelowna Tourism could not be happier about where they are located. A new, six-storey, $20-million Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, located across Highway 97 from the entrance to Kelowna International Airport, opens today after a ceremonial ribbon-cutting and sneak peak for invited guests Wednesday. “This is another building block that sends a message that Kelowna is a growing and prosperous area,” said Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray, who helped cut the ribbon to open the hotel on Wednesday. He did so with Ted Callahan, president of Argus Properties, the local developer that built and owns the hotel. Kelowna Tourism president Nancy Cameron said being part of the Four Points by Sheraton brand—part of the giant Starwood Hotels empire—will help advertise Kelowna to millions more people around the world. Starwood’s international loyalty program alone has an estimated 12 million members. Callahan said he felt it was important to team up with a recognized hotel brand for the new property and felt Sheraton was a perfect fit. The Kelowna property is the first Four Points by Sheraton hotel in the Okanagan and the 63rd in Canada. The hotel includes a Ric’s Grill restaurant, as well as meeting space, a fitness centre, a waterslide and other amenities. Airport director Sam Samaddar said it is unusual for an airport the size of Kelowna’s to have a hotel located so close. Usually, he said, hotels are built close to major airports such as Toronto’s Pearson International, Montreal’s Trudeau International or Vancouver International but not medium-sized airports like Kelowna. “It takes your airport to a whole new level,” said Samaddar. Kelowna’s airport, known as YLW, currently handles 1.4 million passengers per year, making it Canada’s 10 busiest airport. It is preparing to handle 1.6 million passengers by 2016. Samaddar said airport officials gave input for the design of the hotel, suggesting there be suites included for aircrews passing through Kelowna, as well as space where business meetings can take place. The hotel was built in just 15 months. The new hotel is one of the larger ones in the city and Gray said it is located an area of the Central Okanagan recently deemed by a national publication to be an upcoming area for investment. He said his council would still like to see at least one, maybe two, new hotels downtown.

Former MLA named Westside Daze parade marshal Wade Paterson

“It’s an honour,” said Stewart, noting he never missed a Westside Daze celebration during his time as MLA. Over the past four years, Stewart has made it a tradition to dress up in unique costumes—such as Captain Jack Sparrow and Mad Hatter—for the event. It’s unclear at this point whether he will carry on that tradition while leading the Westside Daze parade. This is the third year Westside Daze has had a parade marshal, according to parade organizer Leah


Former Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart can remember the first time he participated in a Westside Daze parade, several decades ago. Stewart donned his Boy Scout uniform and joined several others as they walked down Main Street beside an old Willys Jeep and proudly waved their flags. “In those days, after the second world war, it was kind of at that era where there was a lot of excitement for people in uniforms of any sort, whether you were a scout or a veteran,” said Stewart. Stewart will once again walk in West Kelowna’s annual parade this Saturday, but this time he will do so as Westside Daze’s official parade marshal.

Thordarson. In 2011, longtime cake maker Peter Klein led the parade and in 2012 Lieutenant Governor Steven L. Point was given the honour. Stewart said he has felt the community’s support since making his decision to step aside as Westside-Kelowna MLA to allow Premier Christy Clark to run in the riding for a July 10 byelection. “My aim is to not become somebody who is distant or someone who isn’t there in the community,” said Stewart. “I (hope to) continue

to give good representation for the premier here in the riding.” The Westside Daze parade is the largest of its kind outside the Lower Mainland. It begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. An image of the parade route can be found on page A22. The 2013 Westside Daze four-day celebration begins Friday evening, with a concert by Blues Brothers Too at 7:30 p.m. Westside Daze spokesperson Wayne Moore said the fireworks are on their way, despite some concern they may

not be able to be delivered from Calgary. The fireworks show takes place at 10:15 p.m. Saturday. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater added he has been assured Gellatly Bay construction will be wrapped up prior to the fireworks display. “It may not be perfect, there may be a few stones unturned, but it’s going to be done,” said Findlater.

More city hall staff reach $100,000-plus bracket of the qualifications some city employees possess. “We have so many specialists involved in providing good government to our citizens,” said Gray, adding local government is different from the private sector in many ways. However, in the past, one of the justifications for the salary paid to the city manager in Kelowna has been to compare it to as if he ran a private corporation with an equivalent work force handling an equivalent $100 million budget. To see a list of the Kelowna city employees who received $100,000 or more in total remuneration in 2012, refer to the story on the Capital News website awaterss

A young man who robbed a jewelry store, shot at police officers and kidnapped a pizza delivery person will spend upwards of six-and-a-half more years in jail. Wednesday afternoon, B.C. Supreme Court Justice John Savage decided 21-year-old Devan Markcus Wong should be shown some leniency, reducing the 18 year sentence he could have delivered to eight years, less time served. “It is disturbing to me that you have apparently glorified criminal conduct,” said Savage, noting he understands Wong has aspired to this form of crime. Wong was said to have a childhood onset conduct disorder stemming from a highly destructive childhood, marred by death and abuse. Wong is said to have watched his sick father



Kelowna is out with its annual list of how much its highest paid employees received in 2012. And the list of top earners at city hall has grown. Last year 59 employees—36 managers and 23 firefighters—received total remuneration of more than $100,000, up from 29 five years ago. The number of employees who received more than $75,000 in total remuneration grew to 256 last year from 123 five years ago. As expected, the top paid employee was city manager Ron Mattiussi, who received $254,554. He was followed by community services general manager John Vos at $188,868, corporate sustainability general manager Paul Macklem, who spent most of 2012 running the Central Okanagan Regional District, at $188,796, executive director of business development Jim Paterson at $167,547 and airport director Sam Samaddar at $156,268. The top paid firefighter was training officer Kenneth Jacobson who received $117,071, followed by platoon captains Tim Light, Dale Calhoun and Henry Roeofs, who received $115,847, 115,067 and 109,594 respectively. No city worker represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees made $100,000 or more last year. On Monday, Mayor Walter Gray defended the amount of money the city pays its staff and said he

would prefer that municipalities not have to disclose the total remuneration its pays its workers as part of the mandatory annual financial reporting it must make public each year. He said any employee that works somewhere long enough will see their wages increase. “It’s unfair to people who work for local government and its unfair to the public because they don’t necessarily look at it five years back,” said Gray, who received just over $92,000 as mayor, with about one-third of that tax free. Councillors receive about $31,000, with onethird tax free. Gray said many of the city’s employees are highly trained and educated, listing MBAs and engineering degrees, as some

Restoration funds for too-much-loved Kelowna park Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Popularity can have its downsides as well as its upsides. The City of Kelowna’s largest park, Knox Mountain Park, has been loved to death in places. To help restore some of the most-damaged trails in the park, the city has embarked on a multiphase restoration and development plan, which has already cost the city $200,000 in the past two years. On Wednesday, Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan announced a grant of $100,000 to be matched with $100,000

from the city to restore the Apex Trail which runs from the bottom at the parking lot to the Crown Lookout, and on up to the top of the mountain. Currently there’s a ‘fall line’ trail that has been carved into the mountain down to the roadway, just above the parking lot, by off-trail users. It will be repaired and a new, more-sustainable trail built to zig-zag up that first steep section. Further up, a couple of sets of stairs are being created in particularly-steep locations of the trail, and it will be re-routed across the slope instead of straight down, to re-

duce erosion and damage to the ecosystem. Manager of parks and open places, Terry Barton, said the 310-hectare park was originally given to the city in 1939 and since then it’s been one of the city’s most popular parks, attracting as many as 2,000 people on a weekend. In making the announcement, Cannan said it’s important to protect not only the integrity of trails system, but also the long history of the park. He noted the park attracts families from throughout the region, providing an urban oasis of green in the midst of all the development of a large city.

Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray called it the city’s equivalent to Vancouver’s Stanley Park. “It took someone years ago to have the vision to preserve this spot—but with that gift comes a responsibility of management.” The natural park, with its miles of walking and cycling trails and panoramic viewscapes, is valued by both residents and visitors, he noted. All that use would have less impact on what makes the park special if unsanctioned trail use was discouraged, he added, and that’s what the restoration work will do, while creating new trails for users. In the park’s management plan, restoration of the Apex Trail was identified as one of the highest priorities, so phase one got underway in 2011 and phase two in 2012, said Barton. The work is to be

completed this year. The government grant helps to get the work done well ahead of the original schedule. The Apex Trail from the Crown Lookout to the bottom will be a single use trail, for pedestrians only, explained project manager Amy Nyhof. Signs and fencing will be used to keep people off the areas where the old trail is being rehabilitated. Its open, exposed, sunny aspect means it is habitat for a variety of delicate plants such as bitterroot or Lewisia Rediviva and mariposa lily or calochortus macrocarpus, so off-trail use is particularly damaging to the ecosystem. She said they plan to plant some trees on the steep slope as well. The federal funds come from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.

North Westside residents ticked over water rates richard rolke CONTRIBUTOR

Some North Westside residents are boiling over proposed changes to their water bills. The Regional District of Central Okanagan board will decide Monday if it’s going to reduce the base amount of water a customer receives from 235 cubic metres per quarter to 90 metres. “They are cutting back to get extra money from people,” said Harry Pospolita, a resident who had initiated a petition campaign against the district’s plan. Pospolita’s primary concern is customers will be receiving access to less water but the rate for the water will remain the same, meaning they will actually pay more. “Everyone is opposed to this. People who have a garden or fruit trees won’t have enough water,” he said, adding that the average water bill is about $800 a year. Pospolita also wants pressure placed on North

Westside director Jim Edgson to support the residents. “Mr. Edgson, before he was a director, would have fought this,” said Pospolita. Edgson says he will support the change in the base amount of water received because it will generate between $3,500 to $5,000 a year among all high-end water users in the entire regional district. “The Killiney Beach and Westshore Estate water systems need upgrades and we have a plan to get things fixed,” said Edgson, adding the plan requires funding. “It’s not a tax grab but we set the (base) threshold too high. This is a conservation effort.” Edgson insists the change will only impact 14 to 15 per cent of customers who use more water than necessary. After the 90-metre base is surpassed, the consumption charge will be 35 cents per metre. “Next time you buy a bottle of water in the store, think about it,” said Edgson.

This year’s graduation class numbered in excess of 400 students. RDCO says a 90-cubic-metre quarterly threshold (360 cubic metres a year) is close to Environment Canada’s average household water consumption estimate for B.C. of 325 cubic metres

annually. “Many RDCO customers have been demanding that the consumption fee threshold be significantly reduced to encourage water conservation and ensure that

heavy water users are paying the extra costs associated with heavy water use, such as electricity and treatment,” said Peter Rotheisler, environmental services manager.


Ex-Canuck goalie joins stop child abuse fight Jennifer Smith CONTRIBUTOR

He’s used to stopping shots, but now former Vancouver Canuck goalie Kirk McLean is joining the fight to stop child abuse. In support of the Men of Hope Ride for a Reason, McLean will be signing autographs at Orchard Park Mall Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. Proceeds from the signings (minimum $20 donation) will support Sophie’s Place (Child Development Foundation of B.C.)—providing specialized services to physically, mentally or sexually abused children. There

will also be a VIP dinner with McLean, but there are limited tickets available. To purchase, call 1-604-309-1573 or go to the Post Haus Pub in Kelowna and ask for Sherry. The entire event is part of Andy Bhatti’s journey to ensure fewer kids end up like him. Bhatti, a Langley resident, was sexually abused as a boy but there were no centres like Sophie’s Place at the time to help him. Plus, he never talked about his traumatic experiences, until he faced the man who abused him on trial. Not having anyone to talk to or help him, Bhatti started down

a troubled life of drugs, violence and incarceration. “If I would’ve got help maybe I wouldn’t have spent eight years in jail, maybe I wouldn’t have been a heroin addict,” said Bhatti, now 34, clean of drugs and a father. “If kids from zero to 18 don’t get help then they could end up like I was.” Along with sharing his story and bringing McLean to Kelowna, Bhatti is embarking on a ride from Vernon (July 15) to Vancouver (July 20). He is boarding a bike despite the fact that he hasn’t been on one in years. “I have when I was a kid, but never like this.”

Stopping in cities along the way, Bhatti will be sharing his story and raising public awareness. “I can’t get any awareness if I don’t tell the truth.” Bhatti will start from Save On Foods in Vernon, making stops at the grocery chain in Kelowna, Penticton, Princeton, Manning Park, Chilliwack, Hope, Aldergrove, Langley, Surrey, New Westminster, Burnaby and ending at the Sheraton Wall Centre. “Most people can do it in two or three days, I’m doing it in six to raise public awareness.” For more information, to join in the ride or donate visit or

City salaries reflect bad optics


here is no better place to work than for a municipality. Some people who actually work for the City of Kelowna may disagree with that assessment, but occasional disgruntlement aside, to think otherwise is to forget how good you really have it. Whether in management or a unionized worker, the taxpayer gravy train just seems to have no end. As a result, salaries continue to escalate beyond what private sector workers could ever dream.

The latest release of salary figures from Kelowna City Hall shows 59 employees have seen their salary climb above the $100,000 mark, up from 29 people in that wage class five years ago. For the $75,000 mark, the increase over five years has gone from 123 to 256. Mayor Walter Gray, in trying to put the release of the salary figures in perspective, said any employee that works somewhere long enough will see their wages increase. Perhaps, but

those wage increases in the private sector are driven by the profitability of the employer, not the ability to raise product prices in the same way municipal governments raise our tax rates. The argument waged in recent years by tax advocacy groups is that municipal governments are living far beyond their means, relying on ever increasing property taxes to rising budget costs. The argument municipal officials make is the cost of civic government is rising because

of fiscal responsibility downloading by the provincial and federal governments, and the ever increasing demand by taxpayers for more services such as parks, recreational facilities and transportation. As well, high ranking government officials have to be paid the big bucks in order to keep them from jumping ship and joining the private sector, putting to rest—at least in the government sector—the theory that while employees can and should be valued, no one is indispensable.

Higher employment found for those with certified job skills


t’s one thing to go to college or university; it’s another thing to get a job once you graduate. And due to a recent study by the B.C. government, we now know there are some graduates who find employment in their field of study a lot faster than others. In the study, the government interviewed 14,697 students who completed or almost completed a diploma, associate degree or certificate. Of these students, 69 per cent of them said their employment was very or somewhat related to their education.

Generally, students who completed a certificate in health, education or trades had the highest rates of employment in their field with 89 per cent in Jane trades and 78 per cent Muskens in health and 60 per cent in education. In health and education, these would be students who completed programs in practical nursing, health care assistant, early childhood education and education assistant. Trades students also fared better when it came to full-time vs. parttime employment. Ninety-five per cent of the trades students were work-


ing full-time in their field. Engineering and applied science students had a 93 per cent full-time employment rate of those who found jobs compared to the health and education students where only 68 per cent found fulltime employment. As for pay, it was those who found jobs related to their program of study who garnered a higher hourly wage compared to those who had to take jobs outside of the occupation they studied. For example, students who completed a health program and found a job in their field on average earned $24 per hour compared to others in their class who earned $20 per hour doing another type of work. Across the board wages were on aver-

age $3 more per hour for those working in their field. This statistic is important as it clearly illustrates that getting a credential has value in the workplace and can get you a job with higher pay. This study also shows us that if a program leads to some kind of certification, such as the Trades Red Seal certification, or a certificate which allows someone to work as Licensed Practical Nurse, these tend to lead to higher employment rates because by law employers are required to hire nurses or certified trades people for specific work. This is why many of Okanagan College’s trades and vocational programs go through rigorous certifica-

tion reviews where government certifying bodies visit our college to make sure our programs meet the standards required to award students the credential that certifies them for employment in their field. This week, Okanagan College will be holding graduation ceremonies in both Kelowna and Vernon for more than 500 students who will be awarded vocational certificates and diplomas. Most will already be working in their field and some will probably get multiple job offers—it will be up to them to decide what’s next, but the future looks promising. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College.

Bottom of the class is running the show To the editor: Many years ago, when I was graduating from electronics engineering, we had our choice of employers. I could go work at a government job for 17 per cent less than the private sector. Needless to say those who proved themselves got hired by private companies and those who were not so with it ended up in government work. Skip ahead to 2013 and those guys who took the lower paid government jobs now make 20 per cent more than the private sector and have been promoted to senior positions. So we now have decisions being made that directly affect our taxes by those who were at the bottom of the class. Let me give a few examples: 1. City traffic tech issues a work order to an

electrician to change the signal timing at Benvoulin and Springfield. The work gets done, resulting in only four cars making it through on a green to cross Springfield. Traffic backs up past the heritage church much of the day. Traffic tech does not bother to see the mayhem created as he sits in the office with another coffee. This is the worst run department in the city. 2. Works department gets a nice cheque after a fire in City Park burns down the building. ‘Hey guys, let’s see if we can spend the whole thing on the most expensive biffy ever built by a municipality.’ Never mind what Victoria did for one tenth the price or what Paris has on every other block. 3. The province hands the city some money to make KLO Road more bus-friend-

ly. Never mind that the only real issue is getting the bus driver to pull into the ample room in front of the college. No, we are going to create fancy pull outs, then remove the twoway left turn lane because there might be an accident someday. And we will spend more money putting in concrete dividers and grass and trees that taxpayers can maintain for the next 50 years whilst impeding snow removal. All we can do is pay our taxes and weep. At no time will city hall ever listen to logic because they were at the bottom of the class. I am sorry if I have offended some city staff. If you are one of the bright ones, why do you let others get away with such things? Bruce Stevenson, Kelowna

Make West Kelowna’s Main Street two-way To the editor: You can’t make a silk purse out of sow’s ear. Planting a few flowers and trees on (West Kelowna’s) Main Street will not make it into a high street. Nor will it have any noticeable effect on the noise, as our mayor was trying to suggest. Until Main Street is returned to a two-way street, we will still have the fast moving highway going 50-60 kilometres an hour, along with its wind, water and noise. Semi-truck after semi-truck zooming by is not for the main street of a town. We will still find it difficult to park, and thus the businesses will continue to suffer like they have been doing for the past nearly 30 years. The traffic is getting worse by the year, growing at least 2 per cent per year with not one recent change to the couplet. When we compare it to Peachland, with its sidewalk cafes and coffee houses, its friendly commun-

ity spirit, when you see so many people there, taking the time to talk to each other in a relaxed atmosphere, we really see how badly Westbank has been treated by the ministry of highways. And the worse part about it is: they still are. The local consulting group, hired by our council, has given up trying to encourage the highways department to find a solution. Every time they have suggested something they are told it won’t work. Two years ago, they suggested a two-lane roundabout at Gosset Road. Highways said it would only work for 15 years as the traffic by then would be too heavy for it to handle. They never come back and say, “but this might work.” Their latest excuse is they need eight to 10 lanes (4-5 lanes each way) on Dobbin Road to make it into a bypass so that both sides could be two-way. And the $15 million-estimate to buy real estate on both sides of Dobbin Road, instead of on just one side (say just the south

side) sounds illogical. As does the $33-40 million-estimate for the total. Do they support using Elliot and Brown roads, like our council did? What happens to the traffic on the north end of Brown where it hits Butt Road? Does it all go across Old Okanagan Highway to the roundabout making another traffic jam? The highways department has no engineered drawings to show us, just a draft plan which, by law, doesn’t have to be made public. The highways department is part of our government, paid for by our taxes—they work for us. We have a great need for answers, we shouldn’t have to wait another 15 years before anything is done. The woman in charge in Kamloops is Shawn Grant and her number is 250-828-4285 and her email is shawn.grant@ Farlie Paynter, Westbank


Taj Mahal for constabulary typical overspending To the editor: We have a major problem with City Hall and council. The letter by Adrian Witt is just a primer. (Up To Public to Say Not to Cop Shop Plan, June 20 Capital News.) The city is giving our mounties a Taj Mahal at a time the city is bordering on another recession. Please do not listen to financial experts, and certainly not to Mayor Walter Gray’s euphoric assessment. The problem is mainly with voters. You get elected if you put fires out. You get elected if you are voted man or woman of the year, or as sympathy, and so on. So be it. But quit complaining after the fact. While many are sweating it out with low-paying jobs, bureaucrats are laughing all the way to the bank. How many of you remember the song we have had from past mayors? It goes something like this: “We

have to keep them and pay them well. If we don’t, they will go somewhere else.” Nobody comes out and tells council to put up the red carpet for them to go somewhere else. Now council has hired a consultant to find out what people think. If they don’t know, they simply cannot be that smart. Or, perhaps it was a suggestion from competent bureaucrats. And at what cost? I guess we will never know. City Hall bureaucrats are so competent that they had to hire a consultant to find out how to disburse money for the arts for a pittance of 25,000 bucks. I bet you a high school kid could come up with a solution. Do you know how many times I have asked city clark and council how much the Einstein and Marie Curie of City Hall spend on consultants? I never got an answer. It is never in the budget and

I wonder what on earth councillors are doing. Don’t they ask questions, let alone grill the bureaucrats for stupidity? They asked ‘Four Change’ and they got it. I am not finished. Two weeks ago, I saw a fellow with a tripod on Highway 33. I asked him what he was up to. He told me he works for a paving contractor and he was surveying. As I have nothing to do with my time, I went up and down Highway 33 from 97 to Rutland Road a few times. Unless I am Ray Charles, I could not find anything wrong that required the entire piece to be paved. If city staff worked on commission, contractors would owe them a fortune. To say they get a golden handshake would be preposterous. The answers I have gotten from his worship have been baffling: “We might as well pave while cost is low.”

How many voters would buy new furniture even if they do not need it because prices are low? That is Kelowna for you—the envy of the world. Whether you believe it or not, Canada is financially strapped and so is the world, except for China and Russia. Yet, City Hall spends, spends and spends. Needless to

say, they need bread from people for their extravagance, especially seniors who are strapped. If you are thrilled with council, then let it be. I am not. In Kelowna, nothing would change because the large majority of younger people do not vote. It has been like this for almost 40 years. Mo Rajabally, Kelowna

Liz Wylie Once a visitor to Stephen Foster’s current solo show at the Kelowna Art Gallery has finished with this novelty aspect, however, the thinking and questioning will likely begin. To backtrack, Kelowna-based artist Stephen Foster found some small plastic figures for sale online that made him think of 19th-century photographer Edward Curtis and his work documenting North American First Nations. Moving on from earlier work in which Foster used himself as a model, he began to work in the studio setting up shots of the small figurines. Intriguingly, because the toys have been photographed with such detail, and then the images en-



With a name like Capital Cities, the indie pop alternative dance group seems destined for big things—or at the very least a life dotted with big tour stops. But this summer, Kelowna will become their very first small town Canadian gig, or Canadian festival for that matter, when they play Keloha. “Whenever we have a day off, it’s a blessing because we actually get to go into town and see something,” said Sebu Simonian, who shares the frontman gig with bandmate Ryan Merchant. Simonian is the type raised on performance. Between choirs and piano concerts, getting up on a stage—sandy shores and 10,000 scantily-clad people or not—doesn’t raise an eyebrow for him. He was born in Syria to Armenian parents who raised him in Lebanon until he was six years old

way of seeing, especially when viewing members of a culture other than our own. Plus, 3-D makes reference to popular culture, grabbing from that context, and bringing those references into the gallery setting. The works are housed in commercially produced, framed back-lit lightboxes, as you see in hallways at airports, hotels, etc., generally containing advertising. This is another co-option from popular culture on Foster’s part, aping the look of commercial advertising hardware, but removing it from its normal place. Visitors are provided with 3-D glasses in the exhibition, and will be amazed at how the foregrounds of the works seem to move out into their own physical space. Foster’s digital sleight of hand is admirable, for example in one piece, seamlessly merging single shots of the same toy to create a party on horseback, heading out over some real sand in his stu-

dio, into the Okanagan hills, that he has digitally put in place in the background. As a person of combined European and First Nations descent, Foster is seeking a multiplicity of views in his work, reflecting the complications implicit in his own situation, and for that of many other people. Although he grew up in British Columbia, Foster received his BFA and MFA from York University in Toronto. He has lived in Kelowna since the year 2000, and teaches digital media at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. He has exhibited widely, both still images and videos, across Canada and internationally. Stephen Foster: Re-Mediating Curtis: Toy Portraits is at the Kelowna Art Gallery until Sept. 29. Liz Wylie is the curator at the Kelowna Art Gallery. 250-762-2226

Bulloch, McCarthy in cop buddy movie, The Heat Davis from A13 est rated was The Patriot, starring Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger, but even that was less than universally praised. His lowest rated was 10,000 B.C., which was almost universally disliked. He even tried a drama set in the time of Shakespeare called Anonymous, but most critics did not like it and audiences

stayed away. Emmerich’s biggest successes have been when he is blowing things up and he is also no stranger to making a mess of the White House, after completely destroying it in Independence Day. In White House Down, he has a paramilitary group taking over the President’s residence and its best hope is a police officer who is a rejected applicant to the US

Secret Service. Channing Tatum plays the police officer who must rescue the President (Jamie Foxx) while trying to keep his daughter out of danger. Don’t expect White House Down to be at the top of critics lists and even though there was the similarly themed Olympus Has Fallen earlier this year, expect some fun summer thrills from this one.

••• Although director Paul Feig does not have many movies under his belt, he got off to a great start as a driving force behind the acclaimed but short-lived television show Freaks and Geeks and then gave the male-dominated bachelor party comedy a female twist with Bridesmaids. Now he re-invents the buddy-cop movie with The Heat, re-team-

ing with Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy. Sandra Bullock stars as uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (McCarthy) couldn’t be more incompatible. But when they join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies. ••• Next Wednesday sees

the release of another two big summer movies. The team behind the Pirates of the Caribbean are back with a new take on The Lone Ranger. Johnny Depp stars as Tonto for producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski and the man behind the mask is played by Armie Hammer (best known for playing the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network). ••• Also next Wednesday is the highly anticipated sequel Despicable Me 2.

Steve Carell is back as the voice of Gru, the villain who is called upon when the world needs a hero. The original was hugely successful with both critics and box office, so expectations are high for this sequel. If early reviews are any indication, it meets those expectations.

Management structure at city hall gets re-organized Tweak from A1 a year’s secondment to the Central Okanagan Regional District, where he ran CORD until a new chief administration officer was found. Mattiussi told the Capital News Wednesday the changes at city hall went into effect Tuesday and he described them as more a “tweak” than the re-organization that turned the structure at city hall “upside down” in 2008. The biggest change is the elevation of Macklem to the new position of deputy city manager and the creation of the new strategic services group, that will be headed by former community services general manager John Vos. The new group will include the airport, regional services, business development and the fire department and part of MUNICIPAL its mandate will be to GOVERNMENT work on projects where IS MORE the city can generate revCOMPLICATED enue apart from the taxes it collects from property NOW. owners each year. Ron Mattiussi, “Municipal governcity manager ment is more complicated now,” said Mattiussi. “We do a lot more than we used to and we need much more flexibility.” Mattiussi gave the example of the recent deal with Interior Health to move its workforce downtown as the sort of project the new group would work on. “In that case, we turned a new parkade into an opportunity to get as many as 1,000 more people working downtown,” he said. “I see that as an investment in downtown.” That deal calls for Interior Health to build a new office tower at the corner of St. Paul Street and Doyle Avenue to consolidate its Kelowna workforce. As part of the plan, the city will build a new parkade across the street and expand the existing Library parkade at total cost of about $20 million. “We see the (IHA) plan as economic development,” he added. Mattiussi also pointed to the recently completed deal with Fortis B.C. that saw the company buy the assets of the city’s electric utility for $50 million. The city will invest that money in Fortis to generate returns while avoiding the cost of maintaining and repairing the electric utility’s equipment over the next 20 years. The seven departments that will now report directly to Mattiussi—instead of a departmental general manager—are community planning and real estate, headed by Doug Gilchrist, infrastructure, headed by Vos until he hires a divisional director, civic operations, headed by Joe Creron, active living and culture, headed by Jim Gabriel, corporate and protective services, headed by Rob Mayne, communications and information services, headed by Carla Weaden and human resources and corporate performance, headed by Stu Leatherdale. Both Gilchrist and Mayne filled in for Macklem as corporate services general manager when Macklem was at the regional district. Mattiussi said the public will not see a change in how services are delivered but the new corporate structure at city hall will result in cost savings, more flexibility for the city and better efficiently. He said while there will not be any layoffs as a result of the plan and could not think of any employee who would be downgraded as a result, he said part of the point of the reorganization in the first place was to deal with succession planning. A large number of senior city staff, including Mattiussi, who is 57, are expected to retire in 2016.

UBC selected to evaluate health strategy A professor from the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Health and Social Development is heading up the evaluation of a four-year, $1.6-million national strategy aimed at achieving healthier weights in Canadian communities, announced Tuesday by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The Bridge Youth and Family Services in Kelowna, in partnership with professors fromandUBC of the Central South Okanagan, awardOkanaganwas / Similkameen ed $1.6 million in funding for their Healthy Weights

for Children project— one of nine national strategies funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. The Kelowna-based project will use education-based modules to promote and maintain healthy weights for disadvantaged and underserved children and their families, with a particular focus on aboriginal and minority youth, adults and seniors. Modules address food, nutrition, physical activity, relationships and community support.

Mary Jung, an assistant professor in the School of Health and Exercise Sciences at UBCO, leads the interdisciplinary project evaluation team that includes senior consultant professor Susan Wells, with the School of Social Work, along with graduate and undergraduate students. The evaluation component of the project will assess the efficacy of the modules on more than 300 children and 300 caregivers across Canada. UBC will also train individual site evaluators

from the 10 communities across Canada who will be delivering the project during a two-day workshop in September. The modules for the project were developed by project partner The Bridge Youth and Family Services Society in Kelowna in Phase 1 of funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada. “There are distinct challenges across a widely distributed project with rich demographic differences,” said Jung. The 10 communities include Yellowknife,

N.W.T.; Bonavista, N.L.; Moncton, N.B.; Brantford Ont.; Temiskaming, Ont.; Saskatoon, Sask.; Calgary, Alta.; Dease Lake, B.C.; Castlegar, B.C.; and Vancouver, B.C. “We want to see how this project, developed in Kelowna, can be used across a culturally diverse population,” said Jung. “We also want to see whether this strategy towards achieving healthier weights in Canadians is sustainable and will encourage healthy behaviour change over the long term.”

across North America. Joining Capital Cities will be Matt & Kim, Mutemath, Atlas Genius, the Arkells, Cults, Tanlines and The Trews, to name but a few. Last year attendance figures inched toward 11,000 people—small by festival standards, but very decent for an inaugural performance. The tropical-themed event is designed to feel like one is stepping off the plane onto a Hawaiian island and it’s a showcase for other artists in the Central Okanagan as well with a marketplace and artists’ walk, managed this year by local artist Brit Bachmann. While it may feel exotic for those pouring through the gates, however, being a part of the summer festival groove has more of a treadmill feel for the acts on stage. “It can be pretty taxing on the body, but the

They hit Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal along the way and say when it comes to a Keloha-type event, they’ve got it down to a science—land, do the sound check, find a shower, then the stage. If it’s a tough venue or the sound isn’t working, they smile and sing through it, but generally speaking, their rise to the top has been smooth and efficient as indie acts go. Now with a full-length record, In a Tidal Wave of Mystery, they’re hitting the promotional circuit hard. When the festivities die down and there’s a break in the schedule, they’ll be making a new video for the song Kangaroo Court, released as a single in 2012, and then go right back to making music. “Our goal was to play good musician and have good shows. Signing was kind of like the bonus cherry on top of this amazing cake we’ve been enjoying.” For now all they know, is there will be a lot more touring in the future and likely a lot more awesome new festivals like Keloha to stop in and see. Keloha runs July 5-7 in Waterfront Park. For ticket information visit There are three-day tickets and single-day passes still available.

The failure to remember our infancy W hat is your earliest memory? While you might have one or two specific memories from your very early childhood, most of us don’t have much ability to recall events before about age five or six. If you have children you likely will have noticed they are quite adept at recalling events in the short term (just try promising a treat in the morning and see if they fail to remind you later that day or the next). However, long-term memory in young children is another question. Most young children will not remember a holiday that happened more than a year ago—and of course, by the time we


Paul Latimer reach adulthood, we tend to have very limited memories of anything that happened in early childhood. This phenomenon is known as infantile amnesia and the reason behind it has long been a mystery. Some believe the lack of early childhood memories is linked with verbal development. Others seem to believe memories exist but are buried. Within the psychiat-

ric field, some therapists have devoted a lot of time to attempting to help patients unlock early childhood memories—particularly if trauma or abuse were suspected. However, these techniques have not enjoyed widespread acceptance or success. Research out of the University of Toronto has begun to shed new light on the topic of infantile amnesia. These findings indicate that very active brain development and neuron production in early life seems to make long-term memory formation impossible. Studying younger and older mice, researchers found that if they increased neurogenesis

(formation of new neurons) after memory formation, it induced forgetfulness in the mice. Similarly, decreasing neurogenesis after memory formation in younger mice eliminated normal forgetting. Researchers believe these results could be directly related to how memory works in the human brain. Neurogenesis in the hippocampus—a brain region important for learning and memory—is at its peak in very young babies and children. This is not surprising when you consider how much a child learns in the first couple of years of life. Although the formation of neurons is critical for learning, it also clears

the mind of long-term memory. Storage simply is not a priority for a quickly forming brain. So contrary to what some believe, it seems likely that early childhood memories are not merely blocked or buried, but likely do not exist. Our quickly changing hippocampus in early childhood inhibits information storage. More research into memory formation and neurogenesis will undoubtedly continue to teach us more about this fascinating function of the human brain. Paul Latimer is a psychiatrist and president of Okanagan Clinical Trials.

Dog breed ban not in the works for regional district The Regional District of Central Okanagan says it’s not considering imposing a specific dog breed ban. Such a suggestion was not a part of the Region-

lunch meats, baked beans, store bought bran muffins, canned soups and tomato sauces. More obvious sources of sodium are found in fast food items. A burger and fries meal could easily tally up 1,500 milligrams of sodium. Yet even the health conscious fast food eater can be hard pressed to find low salt options. Some fast food restaurant salads pack in 1,200 milligrams or more and a six-inch sub might contain 800 to 1,200 milligrams of sodium. Remember, that’s almost double in a foot long. Here are a few strategies to reduce your salt intake. When eating out, order dressings on the side and watch out for foods described as pickled, marinated, smoked, barbecued, teriyaki, soy sauce, broth, miso, gravy, bacon and, of course, salted. Look for products that contain less than 200 milligrams of sodium per




Our body needs salt to survive, send nerve impulses and contract and relax our muscles. As a bonus, salt adds flavour and helps preserve foods. However, in our North American food system we get way too much of a good thing. The average Canadian consumes about 3,400 milligrams of sodium daily. This is more than double the recommended intake of 1,500 milligrams, and it is 50 per cent higher than the upper tolerable limit of 2,400 milligrams (which equals one teaspoon). This high salt intake does not come without consequences. According to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation three in 10 Canadians have high blood pressure caused by too much dietary salt. High blood pressure

is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and has been identified by the World Health Organization as the leading risk factor for premature death in the world. So, where does all this salt come from? Roughly 80 per cent of sodium in the diet comes from processed foods and restaurants. It is important to read nutrition labels because salt can be hidden in less obvious places such as breakfast cereals and vegetable juices that boast numerous health claims. Some popular breakfast cereals have up to 350 milligrams of sodium per serving (and most people eat more than one serving) and vegetable juices can have close to 500 milligrams of sodium per cup. Other sources that often surprise the unsuspecting consumer include canned vegetables, cheeses, smoked salmon,

Westside Daze 2013 combines new events and old favourites Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Organizers are gearing up for what many consider to be West Kelowna’s unofficial start to summer. The 38th annual Westside Daze celebration takes place from Friday, June 28 to Monday, July 1. Westside Daze administrator, treasurer and entertainment organizer Leah Thordarson said Westside Daze 2013 will include a few new events, along with all of the old favourites. Two of those new attractions are the Westside Daze youth talent competition, featuring entertainers 13 to 21 years old, and an old-fashioned gospel revival, being put on by

several local churches. “We’ve been able to add things every year— we’ve been able to (consistently) get better entertainment.” Thordarson pointed to one of this year’s entertainers, Tom Jackson, who Thordarson says has a “wonderful voice.” She added this year she had a long list of entertainers to choose from; previously, the Westside Daze committee would have to approach entertainers. “We don’t have to hunt them down, they’re actually asking to come to our event.” The entertainment will be complimented by several favourites that have become commonplace at Westside Daze.

The parade, Show and Shine, Kids Fair, Okanagan Day and fireworks display are popular events the organizing committee aims to offer every year. “Everything is totally free to the public,” said Thordarson. Although attendance was slightly down last year, Thordarson said the amount of people at Westside Daze is usually dependent on weather. “If it’s cool and breezy or threatening rain, people think that we’re going to put it off. But unless…it’s a downpour and we can’t plug in the sound system, everything is a go.” The Westside Daze committee has been organizing the event for 11 years and has seen it grow from a one-day celebra-

tion to a four-day event. Prior to that, various organizations and service clubs attempted to orchestrate the event; however, they were often overwhelmed by the task after a couple of years. “I think there’s a little more stability and continuity now.” There are a few new faces on this year’s organizing committee, including Show and Shine organizer Chris Haffenden and Kids Fair organizer Jenny Sheppard. “Everyone’s been really helpful, we’re like a little family,” Sheppard said of the organizing committee. The effort of about 100 volunteers is also key to the success of Westside Daze.


THE West Coast Amusements rides are always a big attraction at Westside Daze. “It takes a lot of people to put it on, without the volunteers, to be quite honest you couldn’t do it,” said Thordarson. Thordarson said Westside Daze goes a long way toward binding the relationship between West-

bank First Nation, District of West Kelowna and Regional District of the Central Okanagan residents. “We really feel that we can be the bind for all of them. We’re the place where they can all go and

have fun and build our community. “We send that handshake across the lake as well.”

the route and then make their way to the wet zone in time for the finale. “It’s nicer to watch a parade when everyone is nice and (dry). “The wet zone is to-

ward the end—but the kids certainly enjoy it.” Bertholm said he encourages viewers to find their spots early, as he prides himself on starting the parade on time.

The parade begins Saturday, June 29 at 10:30 a.m. It’s is expected to last about an hour-and-a-half.

Popular Okanagan parade continues to add more entries Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTEER

Last year West Kelowna residents watched floats go by during the biggest parade in Westside Daze history. According to longtime Westside Daze parade organizer Carl Bertholm, early indication suggests this year could be bigger. “Entries are just starting to come in and we have several new ones this year that we’ve never seen before,” said Bertholm. “That’s encouraging.” He added several bands have also signed up early, which is a good sign as last year the event was “short on bands.” This is the seventh year Bertholm has been in charge of organizing the

With over 100 entrants last year, organizers found the first floats were completing the route and re-entering the staging area before the last parade entrants could leave the staging area. “We’ve changed the

dispersal area. Instead of coming back into where they assemble, we’re peeling anyone who is self-contained off and getting them out of the parade area altogether and onto another street.” What makes the Westside Daze parade one of the most unique events in the region is its wet zone, which runs along Brown Road from Bering Road to Butt Road. The wet zone begins when the tail end of the parade reaches Bering Road. “We’ve got people there who, for lack of a better word, keep a lid on it to make sure people don’t start spraying until the proper time.” Many viewers choose to watch the parade at various locations along

Gemini award winning actor Vintage motorcycles and singer takes to main stage featured at car show


ABORIGINAL culture will be celebrated at Westside Daze again this year.

Canadian actor, singer and activist Tom Jackson will headline the 2013 Westside Daze family festival. Jackson, who resides in Calgary, has released numerous folk and country albums. He also created and stared in Huron Cradle, a series of Christmas shows, which raised money for Canadian food banks for 18 years. Jackson is a Gemini award nominee and was the recipient of the humanitarian award at the 2007 Juno Awards. He is probably best known on screen for his role on the TV series,

Chris Haffenden’s 1985 Goldwing will be one of several vintage motorcycles on display at this year’s Westside Daze Show and Shine. As organizer of this year’s car show, Haffenden said he figures the addition of bikes will be a welcomed change for visitors of the event. “They haven’t really concentrated on motorcycles before, so this time I’m seeing if I can make it a car and bike show,” said Haffenden. The annual car show has grown significantly over the years, with nearly 200 vehicles on display in 2012. But that growth will likely plateau as there is limited space in Memorial Park. “We’re limited to how many we can actually put on display,” said Haffenden, who is organizing the event for his first time. Along with the bikes, Haffenden expects there will be plenty of impressive cars parked on Memorial Park field Monday, July 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Westside Daze

Wade Paterson Pamela Barnes has volunteered to put together sukanaqin sxelxalt—also known as Okanagan Day—at Westside Daze for the last five years. It’s a task Barnes takes on because she believes Okanagan Day is important. “I really think we need to be represented. It’s important, for the opportunity to share our culture and our history—not enough of that happens,” said Barnes. Okanagan Day, which runs from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at Memorial Park, will aim to celebrate First Nations heritage and people. The event includes various demonstrations in the tepee village, as well as an eagle dance, storytelling and even a rap performance on stage. For Barnes, the best part about the day is the chance to educate people who want to learn more about aboriginal culture. “We’re living in this age of so much concern over political correctness, I think sometimes people are afraid to even ask the questions, because they’re afraid they might ask them the wrong way,” said Barnes, who comes from a mixed background. “I can understand it from both perspectives, so I really try to bridge those cultures.” Through her 35 years of experience giving cultural presentations in various schools, Barnes has observed that there isn’t a significant emphasis on First Nations education. “We’re mentioned in the curriculum as part of somebody else’s story…that’s not the same as people having the opportunity to find out who we really are and what we’re about.” Okanagan Day is a good opportunity to share some of that missing story, said Barnes. She noted she’s been encouraged by the young people who have volunteered to teach stick game demonstrations and other activities that symbolize First Nations history. “We really try to work with a lot of our young people…to train our successors. It’s wonderful to see the young people doing (some of) the demonstrations.”

Bronze for Turner at senior nationals Coach: “He’s a natural athlete who’s potential is endless.”

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna’s James Turner knew the transition from junior to senior competition in national men’s decathlon would be a considerable adjustment. Still, it wasn’t enough to keep the 19-year-old multi-skilled athlete off the podium at his first Canadian senior track and field championships. Turner, a former twotime Canadian junior champion, grabbed the bronze medal in men’s decathlon at the nationals last weekend in Moncton, N.B. “It’s a significant result for me, for sure,” said Turner, who will be heading into his second year at the University of Toronto this fall. “I went in without any real expectations, I was fighting a couple of injuries, and my first year as a senior is a lot tougher, so I just wanted to go in a do as well as I could. I’m happy with the way it turned out.”

Turner and his peers battled windy conditions during the 10-event competition last Friday and Saturday in Moncton. Turner’s best result came in the 400 metres where he placed second only to gold medalist and 2012 Olympian, Damian Warner of London, Ont. Turner posted third-place efforts in the 1,500, high jump and long jump, he took fourth in the javelin, pole vault and 100 metres, fifth in the discus, and was sixth in both the shot put and 110 metre hurdles. Even after the ninth event, the javelin, Turner wasn’t exactly sure where he stood and went into the 1,500 simply hoping to run a good race. In the end, he finished with 7,141 points, just 109 back of the silver medalist, Ottawa’s Patrick Arbour. “I didn’t know I was actually that close and had a chance to be second,” said Turner. “If I would have known, I probably would have run harder. I

I can’t complain.” In addition to earning his first senior medal, another reward for Turner was the experience gained by competing alongside Canada’s top decathlete, Damian Warner, a three-

time national champion who was fifth at the last Summer Olympic Games in London. “It was exciting to be competing with (Damian),” Turner said. “He really helped me a lot, talked to me about little tricks in certain events, things I could do to improve. It was a great ex-

perience.” Okanagan Athletics Club head coach Pat Sima-Ledding, who has been working with Turner the last several seasons, was duly impressed by the 19-year-old’s performance at nationals. “The fact that he’s 19 and in his first year as a senior, it’s incredible what he accomplished,” said Sima-Ledding. “James has been working very hard, he’s cleaned up those events that were weaker for him and he’s become more well-rounded decathlete. He’s a natural athlete who’s potential is endless. This is only just the beginning for him.” The next major event for Turner is the Canada Summer Games in mid-August in Sherbrooke, Que. Following that event, Turner will return to the University of Toronto where he’ll be joined on the Blues track team by his younger brother, Rostam.

Rockets season opener vs Blazers The Kelowna Rockets will launch the new Western Hockey League regular season with a doubleheader against one of their closest rivals. The 2013-14 schedule, released this week by the WHL, has the Rockets kicking off the new campaign Friday, Sept. 20 in Kamloops against the Blazers. Kelowna and Kamloops will meet again for a rematch the following night, Saturday, Sept. 21 at Prospera Place. It was the Blazers who knocked off the Rockets in four games in the second round of last spring’s WHL playoffs. The Rockets will see the defending WHL champs early in the new campaign as the Portland Winterhawks pay a visit to Prospera Place for two games on Oct. 4 and 5. Kelowna’s annual pre-Christmas road trip will take the team on a sixgame tour of the Eastern Division, beginning Dec. 10 in Swift Current and ending Dec. 17 in Saska-

toon. The Rockets will close out the 72-game regular season with a home-andhome set against Vancouver, playing March 14 at Pacific Coliseum and March 15 back in Kelowna. Meanwhile, the Rockets will play four exhibition games prior to the start of the 2013-14 regular season. The Rockets will host two home pre-season games, playing Kamloops on Friday, Aug. 30 and hosting the Vancouver Giants on Sept. 7. Kelowna will play in Vancouver on Aug. 31 and in Kamloops on Sept. 6.

Kelowna skaters perform well in Wenatchee Apple Ice

The depth of skating talent in Kelowna was evident last weekend in Wenatchee, Wash., as local skaters won medals in all events at the Apple Ice Classic figure skating competition. The field of competitors included top skaters from the Seattle area, as well as skaters from as far away as Alaska. Kelowna skaters swept the podium in the Junior Women’s Free Skating event. Julianne Delaurier led the way with a personal-best score of 74.09, while Jayda eJurome, Cailey England, rand Dana Bobyn won the silver, bronze, and pewter -medals, respectively.

Best in nation bowl in Kelowna Many of Canada’s top five and 10-pin bowling teams converged on Kelowna last weekend for the 2013 National Classified Bowling Championships at McCurdy Bowling Centre and Capri Valley Lanes. The lone Kelowna-based team at the annual national showcase competed in the women’s 10-pin event, with McCurdy’s Charmaine Loff, Averil Radke, Ashtin Grunwald and Nancy Cobb representing Team B.C. The local women finished just out of the medals, taking fourth place overall in the 10-pin event. Northern Ontario won gold, Saskatchewan took silver and Southern

Ontario won the bronze. Nancy Cobb posted the high average for the B.C. team at 186.4, as well as the best single with a 234. In the men’s 10-pin competition at McCurdy, Saskatchewan won gold, Northern Ontario won silver, and Southern Ontario, the bronze. Meanwhile, Team B.C. felt right at home in capturing the men’s national five-pin title at Capri Valley Lanes. The team from the Merritt Bowling Centre earned the gold medal ahead of Maintoba and Newfoundland. The Canadian championship team is Jordan Pinto, Harold Aljam, Jerrid Chandler,



Tony Abraria and Cody Hostrawser. In the women’s five pin championship, Al-

berta and Northern Ontario tied for first, with Alberta taking gold in a tiebreaker roll-off.

Manitoba won the bronze, while B.C.’s team, from Lincoln Lanes in Vernon, placed sixth.

Jays’ Canada Day Blast starts Thursday at Elks Stadium The 2013 edition of the Kelowna Jays 10th annual Canada Day Baseball Blast kicks off Thursday night at Elks Stadium, but with one fewer team than expected. Due to the flood situation in Alberta, the Calgary Redbirds have been forced to withdraw from the tournament, as many of the players’ homes and

families have been directly affected. The opening game was to have been between the Redbirds and Okanagan A’s, but organizers instead hope to have Kelowna Jays and Northwest Honkers square off at 7 p.m. This year’s lineup includes some of the top semi-pro, summer col-

lege and club teams in the west, including the defending champion Seattle Studs. The Everett Merchants, last year’s runner-up Nanaimo Coal Miners, and Thurston County Senators are among other teams in the mix for the tournament title. Sixteen teams will

Eleven Kelowna swimmers captured 10 medals, made 30 finals and posted 49 best times over the three-day meet.

team, consisting of Epp, Kornell, Thompson and Kaylin Scuka with a silver medal.   Jets’ assistant head coach Cody Hitchcock was impressed with the performances by the young group of swimmers.   “The team worked as one and supported each other through this exciting weekend,” Hitchcock said. “The future of the team looks bright with these swimmers coming up.” Next up is the AAA Provincials in Vancouver July 4 to 8 and National Age Group Championships in Montreal July 25 to 29.

Chartered accountant firm relocates to the Mission STRAIGHT FROM DEHART


Maxine DeHart

The new premises are larger and brighter with lots of parking for both staff and customers. The entire space is more open and fluid with lots of natural sunlight. The office has showers for staff who bike or walk to work, secure bike storage, a full kitchen and boardroom/ classroom. Mountain pine beetle wood was also used in the construction of the premises. The decision to move was easy as the new area is easily accessible for KPMP’s clients. The partners of KPMG LLP are Peter Ranson, Dave Bond and Kelly Watson.

The company held a couple of events to celebrate the oc-

mark Bike To Work and School Week. More than 125,000 kilometres were traveled by bike and other active transportation options, like walking, during this year’s Bike to Work and School Week. That is equivalent to traveling the distance across Canada nearly 50 times. Almost 1,300 local residents committed to a cycling commute by signing up for Bike to Work Week. The Central Okanagan had the third highest participation cross the province in the alternative transportation promotion exercise—behind only Metro Vancouver and Greater Victoria.  “We are one of few communities that also

offer Bike and Walk to School Week at the same time. We saw a dramatic increase in participation among schools this year,” said Mike Kittmer, active transportation coordinator for the City of Kelowna. At least 28 schools in the Central Okanagan participated this year, and among those schools onethird of students walked or rode their bike during the week. “It’s so encouraging to see youth increasingly cycling and walking to school,” added Dave Gibson, school traffic safety officer for the Central Okanagan. “Walking and biking to school provides children with much needed physical activity, prepares them for learning and increases the safety of our

school zones.” Every year, students in the Central Okanagan are taught cycling skills and safety leading up to Bike to Work Week “This year, we delivered Bike Rodeos to more than 2,000 students in 14 schools throughout the region,” said Gibson.    A number of events were held across the Central Okanagan to reward cyclists during Bike to Work and School Week. “The weather at the beginning of the week was unpredictable, but a record number of cyclists braved the rain to attend our events,” said Kittmer. “Our sponsors and partners were amazing this year. With their help, we were able to offer more events in more areas of the community.”

UBCO signs up billboard advertiser Billboard advertising is coming to the UBC Okanagan campus—but they won’t be viewable from outside. The university has signed a deal with the InSite Advertising Network for the installation of 35 classic billboards inside the restrooms of the athletic facilities at the Kelowna campus. InSite will now be able to offer almost 200 electronic frames available at

the UBCO and Thompson Rivers University campus in Kamloops. Established in 1996, InSite Advertising Network is a Canadian media company that offers innovative indoor classic billboard and banner advertising placed in high traffic areas such as restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, fitness clubs, colleges and universities.

If only that oak tree could talk, what stories it could tell. One of its earliest memories would be of being planted near Okanagan Lake at what is now The Cove Resort in West Kelowna in 1901 by the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, who went on to become King George V and Queen Mary of England. The planting was during a cross-country tour of Canada by the royal couple in October, in an attempt to help them “break free of the Euro-centric view of the world and see their British subjects in a global perspective,” according to the Royal B.C. Museum. Speculation is that the couple were waiting for the arrival of a sternwheeler to take them across the lake at the time, likely on the S.S. Aberdeen. It would have made regular stops at Gellatly. The Cove Resort is immediately adjacent to the historic Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park. It’s possible the royalty were headed to the Coldstream Ranch to visit with Lord and Lady Aberdeen. Decades later, the ancient oak gained the respect of current owner and

whether you were a scout or a veteran,” said Stewart. Stewart will once again walk in West Kelowna’s annual parade this Saturday, but this time he will do so as Westside Daze’s official parade marshal. “It’s an honour,” said Stewart, noting he never missed a Westside Daze celebration during his time as MLA. Over the past four years, Stewart has made it a tradition to dress up in unique costumes—such as Captain Jack Sparrow and Mad Hatter—for the event. It’s unclear at this

Senior’s Day

point whether he will carry on that tradition while leading the Westside Daze parade. This is the third year Westside Daze has had a parade marshal, according to organizer Leah Thordarson. In 2011, longtime cake maker Peter Klein led the parade and in 2012 Lieutenant Governor Steven L. Point was given the honour. Stewart said he has felt the community’s support since making his decision to step aside as Westside-Kelowna MLA to allow Premier Christy Clark to run in the riding for a July 10 byelection. “My aim is to not become somebody who is distant or someone who isn’t there in the community,” said Stewart. “I (hope to) continue to give good representation for the premier here in the riding.” The Westside Daze parade is the largest of

its kind outside the Lower Mainland. It begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. An image of the parade route can be found on page A22. The 2013 Westside Daze four-day celebration begins Friday evening, with a concert by Blues Brothers Too at 7:30 p.m. Westside Daze spokesperson Wayne Moore said the fireworks are on their way, despite some concern they may not be able to be delivered from Calgary. The fireworks show takes place at 10:15 p.m. Saturday. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater added he has been assured Gellatly Bay construction will be wrapped up prior to the fireworks display. “It may not be perfect, there may be a few stones unturned, but it’s going to be done,” said Findlater.

FIRST - Do you have the financial resources? You should have five percent of the purchase price of a home for the down payment, but ideally even more. Are there other priorities in your life e.g. starting a new business, which require your savings? If not, buying a home should be on your radar. SECOND - Do you expect to stay in your new home for some time? Moving can be expensive and you will want to build some equity before having to relocate. Your job and home life should be stable.
