Relief response fills four semi trailers BY ART HARRISON Times Staff

When Trina Howell opened the trailer of the first truck that arrived at her home when her family began their Koots for Calgary relief effort her first thought was, “How are we ever going to fill that?” Four trucks later the Glenmerry resident is grateful for the help in dealing with all the donations that have been loaded and shipped to Alberta. “It only took six and a half hours to fill “Not only the first truck,” said would I do Howell. it again, I’d “The call went out and the Fruitvale Fire do it in a heartbeat.” Department showed up to help out. TRINA HOWELL “They’ve been great, they had a hand in every load.” What began as a single family effort, motivated by seeing the devastating loss for so many families in southern Alberta, eventually grew into large campaign with donations arriving from around the West Kootenay. Neighbours and volunteers from around the area came on-board to help pick up and organize donations and loading the trucks destined for Calgary and surrounding area. “We had one 84 year old call and volunteer to do the pick-ups, David Quarterman, he said that he was still spry enough to help out,” said Howell. “He was more than spry, he put some of the younger guys to shame. “He was driving all over the area collecting donations.” Howell said that, through the process of building the project, she gained contacts in the stricken areas of Alberta that helped to give her a clearer picture of the effect the flooding had on residents. “I’ve got contacts on the reserves, in High River and at the drop-in centre in Calgary,” she said. “I’ve been getting comments back that people are feeling hopeless, they’re not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I just feel that it’s not acceptable to leave people in that state of hopelessness.” See PROM, Page 3

Children motivate man on long walk Vancouver man stops in Trail on his journey from Hope to Calgary to raise money for the Children’s Aid Foundation BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

A Vancouver business man who is walking from Hope to Calgary to raise money for disadvantaged children made it through Trail Friday with his sights set on the greatest challenge, the Salmo-Creston. Forty-year-old Bart Zych is hoofing it 1,100 kilometres for his cause, iforCommunity Project, and has set a goal of raising $50,000 for the Children's Aid Foundation, an organization that works to enhance the lives of neglected kids in Canada. Last year, he broke his knee cap so severely that doctors didn't think it was fixable and he was handicapped for three months before getting back on his feet again. The second chance at walking, a simple pleasure taken for granted, paired with disheartening news of Amanda Todd's suicide due to bullying, the Sandy Hook shootings and other violence against youth set him in motion. He woke up this past December and decided he would lace up and challenge himself to push others to give to the most vulnerable – children. He's doing it for “Canadian kids, who are neglected, disadvantaged, homeless because these types of kids don't receive the proper mentorship, education and care and they grow up with a higher potential of committing crimes, bullying, as well as being victims themselves. “I felt specifically that I had to do this for Canadian kids because there are so many charities helping kids overseas but I believe that we have to start at home,” he said. It's been a tough journey for Zych, who left his comfortable home in the West End of Vancouver (where he is a business instructor) to rough it in the wild. With a goal of 30 km of stretch per day in mind, Zych drove his car to Hope to start his trip on June 17. Nearly three weeks later, he made it to Trail after a gruelling climb over several summits and knee jerking finish down the Rossland hill, where he thought his knee might give out completely.

Bart Zych takes a well-deserved break in Trail before resuming his walk to Calgary. “I've been thought of as a homeless and vagrant and at the same time I was given this T shirt in Grand Forks by the mayor,” he said. “It's been the highest ups both mentally and physically to the lowest lows.” Mother Nature has not taken it easy on him, either. The first two weeks of his travels it rained for nine days. Some of his limited essentials – a tent and sleeping bag – were soaked and so were his spirits.

A couple soggy weeks of torture nearly broke him. “We take for granted the simple things that we have and enjoy every day like a bed, like a roof over our heads and a shower,” he said. “I came this close, really, within an inch of giving up.” But reflecting back on who he was doing this for and looking at his financial tally go up on his website, gave him the strength to carry on.

Members of the Compassionate Friends Society met in Gyro Park Saturday to remember loved ones and friends who have passed away. The group went for a “Memory Walk” along the river to Sunningdale and back and afterwards released helium balloons with the names of their loved ones and messages written on them in memoriam. “It can help you to move to a positive resolution around the death of a loved one,” said event organizer, Joan Sheloff.

In Rossland someone offered to buy him some groceries but other destinations en route his hunger led him to ask grocery store mangers for throw away produce. To his surprise, he was handed beautiful ripe fruit and vegetables that we’re considered garbage by standards due to its remaining shelf life. The challenge has been physically trying on the man with 16 pieces of titanium in him (if you count his recent brake, repairs to his hand after a car accident and an ACL surgery) but the mental climb has been the toughest part.

“I’ve learned how little we need to be happy and how much people, who have all these things that we take for granted, just want more and more and more,” he said. “How much we get focused on ourselves and I’m not just saying this about other people, I’m talking about myself as well.” With modified jogging strollers to pull his gear – few sleeping comforts, water, a dwindling food supply and technology to map his progress – Zych has surrendered himself to the great outdoors. His route along the Crowsnest was met with kindness from some people and glares from others, including wild animals. “Sleeping outside in the wild is similar to sleeping

No major injuries in three-car crash By Times Staff Trail RCMP responded to a three vehicle accident on Highway 3B at Devito Drive Friday afternoon. A westbound GMC Suburban was proceeding through the intersection on a green light when an eastbound Dodge pickup turned left in front of it to go onto Devito Drive. The impact of the collision caused the Dodge to roll onto its side and slide into the Toyota, which was waiting at the intersection for a red light. Surprisingly, there were no serious injuries resulting from the accident beyond soreness resulting from being restrained by seatbelts.

Independent school enrolment goal reached By Timothy Schafer Rossland News

Dave Lindal and Allwn Middleton from the Fruitvale Fire Dept were helping to load a trailer full of donations for the Calgary flood victims.

They’re staying on the school grounds on a rise above the flooded area. It must be so hard to be there, looking down every day on where you had lived.” Although the fourth truck, scheduled to leave Monday, was intended to be the final load, the Howell family isn’t finished with their efforts yet. “We’re still taking some prom dresses from Nelson.

in High River so we have some time to get them there,” said Howell. “We’re considering doing another load later in the summer when people are trying to get re-settled in their homes again.” The relief project has taken a lot of work for the Howells but Trina says she has no regrets about taking it on. “Not only would I do it again, I’d do it in a heartbeat,” she said. “The response of the community was overwhelming and it was an emotional and touching experience. It was more work than we expected but everyone who helped out said it was worth it.” By Sam Van Schie Nelson Star

One year after cancelling the Nazareth concert in Nelson, former event promotor Roger Carruthers has announced what many ticket holders had long suspected — he will not be issuing refunds. Carruthers, owner of Rockopolus Promotions, sent a brief email to the Star stating that he was filing for personal bankruptcy and shutting down his

What started as a rumour and a show of hands at a school district public meeting months ago has taken shape. Minimum enrolment numbers for the city’s independent school have been achieved, moving the Seven Summits Centre for Learning from a vision to a reality for Rossland youth. And all it took was another public meeting. On Wednesday, June 26 at the Rossland Gallery over 100 people turned out for a Neighbourhoods of Learning in-depth look at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning proposed for the city in the wake of Rossland Secondary School closing. And what they saw was enough for 16 more students to enrol, bringing the student body to a count of 24—including eight international students—more than the 15 needed to make the centre viable. With courses already certified by the B.C. Ministry of Education, and confirmation the school would receive partial funding from the province, it only needed bums in the seats to materialize this fall. NOL coordinator Aerin Guy said there will be more students coming. The Visions for Small School society (VSS), which will administer the school, had to set a narrow time line for initial registration in order to meet the minimum requirements. “But now that the pressure is off more people are downloading registration forms so we expect more (students),” she said. “Now that we have this many kids it will keep on growing.”

promotions company. He said that “ongoing health problems with cancer” contributed to his decision, adding that he “deeply apologizes and is sorry for the inconvenience and momentary loss to the ticket refund holders.” Carruthers did not respond to the Star’s request for an interview. More than 400 people bought $25-$35 tickets to see the Scottish rock band play at the Nelson and District Community Centre last

summer. The concert was scheduled for July 10, 2012 but was cancelled six days before the event due to low ticket sales. The event was presented jointly by Rockopolus and Revolution Audio, a local business co-owned by Bill Stack. The pair lost the $9,500 deposit they paid to Nazareth and their opening act, Headpins, because they didn’t provide sufficient notice to cancel the event. Months went by and Nazareth

have a low ratio of learners to SelfDesign High mentors and learning consultants, and students would be able to fast track through high school if desired. Students can still participate in RSS and Crowe sports teams, as per BC School Sports policy, and Grade 10–12 learners could cross-enrol if desired, taking one or more courses at Crowe, and the rest through SelfDesign. “It’s a great option for kids across the district, for whom a larger high school is not the best fit,” said Guy. Seven Summits will be administered by VSS, with the long term goal to become a learning hub for the entire community, with post-secondary and after-hours classes available to anyone. Graduation scholarships for post secondary are listed on SelfDesign’s website for students. The number of teaching staff—accredited within the BC education system and trained in the SelfDesign system—will be determined by enrolment. Students will be required to fill out a Seven Summits application form, as well as to enrol online with SelfDesign. Red Mountain Academies students will also have to fill out an RMA application form. Vice principal of SelfDesign, Barbara Nicholl, will do an information session in Rossland in the next two weeks with parents geared towards revealing more aspects of the program. For more information or an application package on the new school go to, or email info@sevensummitslearning. com.

ticket holders were still without their refund. In November, Carruthers issued a statement to media saying he was still organizing smaller shows to raise money for refunds. Over at Revolution Audio, Bill Stack had said he would shoulder half the cost of issuing refunds and started a list of people who he owed money to. He told the Star that the refunds had been “slow going,” but he was still committed to paying everyone on his list.

Most young people are in Grade 8, with numbers dwindling as it reaches the higher grades. No registration deadline has yet to be set. The partnership between Red Mountain Academies, VSS, NOL and SelfDesign Learning Community will deliver a learner-centred, inquiry-based learning approach that encompasses the entire B.C. Grade 8-12 high school graduation program. At present there is no particular space set for the school until enrolment numbers are solidified. However, the school will use the conference room at Red Mountain in fall if a more permanent spot isn’t ready to go. Tuition will be $1,000 a year for the Seven Summits Centre for Learning, with some tuition subsidies available. Tuition fees will help to cover the cost of the facility. Education through SelfDesign is free to all B.C. residents with funding from the Ministry of Education, Independent Schools Branch. SelfDesign—co-founded in 2002 by Brent Cameron—is primarily an independent distributed learning school which means that a portion of the program is online, offering personalized learning customized to each student’s needs, using online interactive learning and face-to-face learning. SelfDesign High mentors (teachers) will be working at the centre with students. There are some obvious advantages to the new program, said Guy, with flexible scheduling allowing a focus on extra-curricular activities and outside interests. Although the learning centre would be small, it would

Chemicals, not oil, are riskiest rail cargo By Jeff Nagel

Surrey North Delta Leader

Authorities are playing down concern over potential for a deadly rail disaster in the Lower Mainland after a runaway train laden with crude oil destroyed much of the Quebec town of Lac Megantic. Shipping oil by rail has been on the upswing as pressure grows to get landlocked Alberta oil out to global markets. Train loads of crude oil aren’t yet rolling through Metro Vancouver for export, but there’s growing speculation that could come, particularly if proposed new pipelines are rejected. (Small amounts of crude have come by truck or train to Chevron’s Burnaby refinery at times when it was unable to get enough supply from the over-subscribed Trans Mountain pipeline.) But poisonous or

explosive gases do roll on rail through heavily developed Metro neighbourhoods and those are the train cars that are of greatest concern to emergency responders if a train derails. Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis said one risky substance is propane, which is explosive and heavier than air, so it doesn’t readily dissipate. Other chemicals that move on rail in this region include chlorine, hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide, which spilled from CN Rail cars into the Cheakamus River in 2005, killing half a million fish. Rail disasters are a “low frequency, high risk” threat that emergency responders in the region prepare for, he said. “We haven’t taken it lightly,” Garis said. But he emphasized the rail industry’s safety record moving

dangerous goods has steadily dramatically since a 1979 chlorine leak in Mississauga, Ontario forced the evacuation of 218,000 people. That incident triggered major regulatory reforms, including beefed-up tanker cars for hazardous goods. “The rail cars that carry commodities that pose risks are designed to roll over, they’re designed to crash into each other end-onend, so even if they do derail, they’re designed to withstand the consequences of that,” Garis said. “The track record in recent years is extremely positive.” Garis also noted the volumes of such chemicals moving here are relatively small. Unlike derailments in rugged slide-prone parts of B.C., Garis noted the Lower Mainland is flat and trains move slowly so risks of an accident are

reduced. North Vancouver energy consultant John Hunter said Lac Megantic underscores the fact that pipelines are safer than rail transport of oil. He said more should be done to protect area residents from a chemical or hydrocarbon spill from a train along CN line on the North Shore, in close proximity to residents. Hunter suggests a siren to warn residents to take emergency action. “I think it’s highly unlikely we’ll ever have one, but I think we should have a notification system in case something goes wrong.” Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said the Quebec disaster is a “wake-up call” on rail safety and for the federal govern-

ment to ensure there’s adequate regulation and enforcement. But she noted dangerous chemicals like propane and chlorine may be a greater threat when carried in heavy trucks on the roads with other traffic. “You have to look at the risks,” she said of hauling by rail. “It’s either that or put it on a truck.” Jackson recently came back from a factfinding trip to Norway on that country’s approach to moving oil. While there are no plans yet in southern B.C. for an oil-onrail export terminal, Jackson said she wants to be “well-versed” on that and related port issues. “We are a major port here in Deltaport, and from eveything I can see, it is going to continue to grow.”

THE CANADIAN PRESS GOLDEN, B.C. - A male grizzly cub rescued from near starvation is heading back home to the wild in Golden after being nursed back to health as part of a unique pilot project. Tika, whose name means Brave One in a First Nations language, has been living at a rehabilitation centre in Smithers since December but will be placed in its natural territory today. The orphaned bear had limited human contact while being cared for at the Northern Lights Wildlife Society, where it fattened up in the winter instead of hibernating. The grizzly has been fitted with a satellite collar and will be monitored for 18 months so researchers can determine whether releasing orphaned bears is viable. Tika is the eleventh grizzly to be rescued, transported and released into the wild since 2008 as part of a pilot project between the rehab centre, the International Fund for Animal Welfare and British Columbia’s forestry and environment ministries. The International Fund for Animal Welfare is supporting similar projects in Russia and India.

Greater Vernon taxpayers are hitting the ice to support a national sports event. The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee agreed to waive its cut of merchandize sales for the 2014 Royal Bank Cup and absorb the cost of providing clean ice at Kal Tire Place. “The ask was reasonable and fairly small,” said Mike Macnabb, GVAC chairperson, of the request from the RBC host committee. “The event will be good for the community. Vernon is a big hockey town and there will be a lot of support from that

faction.” The host committee will also be allowed to control food and beverage service in VIP areas during the national junior hockey championships May 10 to 18, 2014. GVAC will also allow a second zamboni to be used. The financial impacts from waiving the percentage of merchandise and controlling food and beverage service in certain areas is not known. It will cost $8,000 to clean the ice (clearing logos) and $2,500 for the second zamboni (staff time). The funds will come from an account GVAC uses to encourage special events to be

held at Kal Tire Place. “This is an excellent example of what the seed money was intended for,” said director Bob Fleming. Beyond these recent decisions, GVAC has already committed free use of Kal Tire Place for the RBC Cup. That amounts to $22,200 in lost rental fees. The City of Vernon has provided $14,450 in hotel room tax revenue for marketing. In return for assistance, GVAC is asking the host committee to pay back the cost of the ice resurfacing and the additional zamboni if the event generates a profit.


City wins a fresh coat of paint The Penticton Western News Penticton will get a fresh coat of paint thanks to those who voted online in the Benjamin Moore Main Street Matters program. Nearly half a million votes put 20 communities from across the U.S. and Canada in the winner’s circle to receive revitalizations by Benjamin Moore. From Sandy-striken Sea Bright, NJ to Penticton the 2013 towns chosen will receive a revitalization package including exterior painting of downtown businesses along a twoto-three block stretch in each location. “We’re thrilled about the

enthusiasm and passion from local businesses and communities around for Main Street Matters,” said David Melançon, chief marketing officer of Benjamin Moore & Co. “The incredible response is a testament to how strongly people feel for their community and we hope this movement continues to drive support for local businesses as every Main Street has a story.” Throughout a six week voting period, more than 130 communities rallied on and to encourage excitement and votes in hopes of garnering a 2013 selection. The projects are due to

begin this summer and continue through early 2014 and will be undertaken with the help of multiple partner organizations including Benjamin Moore’s longtime partner Make It Right, its network of independent dealers, plus local municipalities, small business and local chambers of commerce. Benjamin Moore will provide all necessary paint, stain and supplies for façades, porches, railings, shutters and other exterior building trims. The areas to be painted will be determined jointly with town representatives and residents, and Benjamin Moore colour experts will consult on colour choices.

Parole cuts for Latimore THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - The National Parole Board has removed one of the conditions of Robert Latimer’s release, but two others he had asked the board to lift remain in effect. The board has ruled that Latimer no longer needs one-on-one psychological counselling as part of his full parole. But he is still banned from having responsibility for anyone with a significant disability. L a t i m e r, who is 60, was convicted of second-degree murder in 1997 and sentenced to life in prison for killing his severely disabled daughter. Tracy, who was 12, had cerebral palsy when Latimer killed her on the family’s farm in Wilkie, Sask., by piping exhaust into the cab of his truck in 1993. The board also denied Latimer’s request to travel freely outside Canada without having to apply first for a limited time passport.

Charred church re-opens THE CANADIAN PRESS REGINA - Heavenly music is once again emanating from a Regina church almost a year after the congregation saw their place of worship hit by arson. Members of the Faith Baptist Church held a grand reopening Sunday to help put the devastating fire behind them. Pastor Steve Fish says he was shocked when he got a call early one summer morning last year to hear that fire trucks were at the church, and that the fire had been deliberately set. Fish says offers of aid flooded in soon after word of the blaze got out. The pastor says he’s thankful for all the help the congregation has received to restore their south-end church. The arsonist has still not been caught, but Fish says he’s praying for the person or persons responsible and holds no hard feelings.


Unfinished depot sold THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL - The Quebec government has shed itself of a multimillion-dollar white elephant, selling off a half-finished bus terminal Friday. The Ilot Voyageur project is considered a symbol of mismanagement of public funds. The skeletal downtown structure has been untouched since 2007, when cost overruns put a stop to the ambitious project and nearly bankrupted the Universite du Quebec a Montreal in the process. The university had planned to build student housing on the upper floors of the site. The Parti Quebecois government has sold the building to B.C.-based real-estate developer Aquilini. The transaction is valued at $45.5 million and Aquilini plans to invest more than $150 million in a project to build 700 condos and apartments. Premier Pauline Marois lamented the $225 million lost in the project, which is frequently cited as Exhibit A in past mismanagement of public funds.


Devastated town awaits word on missing

THE CANADIAN PRESS LAC-MEGANTIC, Que. – Eight more bodies have been found in the wreckage of the Lac-Megantic, Que., train derailment, bringing the death toll so far to 13. The number of those pronounced dead has risen now that investigators have managed to gain better access to the zone closest to the blast. About 50 people, including the victims, have been declared missing after the weekend rail disaster that devastated much of the town. The first bodies were found on the weekend and the coroner”s office says they are being examined in Montreal to determine their identity. The coroner”s office is asking the relatives of people missing to provide DNA to help identify victims. Safety concerns had prevented any overnight search operations. The town began its work week in anything but working order. It’s unclear how the town”s survivors might rediscover their normal routine or how long it might take. Dozens of businesses and numerous homes are destroyed. A grocery store, a dollar store, and a popular downtown bar are gone. So is the municipal library. There’s a no-go zone around city hall and a main pharmacy. The town’s prized veterans’ park, along the water, has been scorched. After viewing the devastation Sunday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper likened the downtown of Lac-Megantic to a “war zone.” From England, the Queen offered her condolences for what she described as a shocking loss of life. She said she hoped it would be possible to rebuild both the

A look at some of the key numbers, as of Monday evening, related to the train derailment in LacMegantic, Que: Number of declared dead: 13 Number of people considered missing: About 40 Number of buildings destroyed: Between 30 and 40 Number of people forced out of their homes: Between 1,500 and 2,000 Number of Lac-Megantic residents: 6,000 Number of cars on the train: 72 carloads of crude oil and five locomotives property and the lives affected. The epicentre of the disaster is a bar where many people are feared to have died. Sophie L’Heureux, manager of MusiCafe, left the bar Friday at around 10 p.m. to go home for a quick nap. She was supposed to return to the pub later in the night. “I”m in survival mode right now. My priority is to try sleep if I can, eat if I can,” she said Monday. “For the rest, it”s one minute, one day at a time.” “(I) have lots of trouble sleeping because I’m stuck with the images and the sounds, the noise of the fire. It”s very difficult to get away from that.” Her home is close to the bar, so the ray of light from he crash woke her up. She went outside and saw the flames. “I saw enough to be horrified by what happened.” She lost three colleagues and many friends and acquaintances at the bar. She was the manager for about a year, but had worked and hung out there regu-

larly for the last several years. She carries an enormous amount of anger toward the railway company – a feeling expressed by many residents Monday. She said the company can’t possibly repair all the damage that”s been inflicted. The railway, Montreal, Maine & Atlantic, has said the locomotive was somehow shut down after the engineer left the train. It said the engineer had locked the brakes before leaving the train. That shutdown “may have resulted in the release of air brakes on the locomotive that was holding the train in place,” the company said in a statement Sunday. There might have been warning signs hours before the disaster. Witnesses in the neighbouring community of Nantes, where the train had been parked before it started moving, said Sunday they had seen sparks and a cloud of diesel smoke as it came to a stop a few hours before the derailment. Lac-Megantic”s fire chief said Nantes firefighters had answered a call about a fire aboard the locomotive less than three hours before the train rumbled into Lac-Megantic. About 30 buildings were destroyed, including Le Musi-Cafe bar where partygoers were enjoying themselves in the wee hours of a glorious summer night. The multiple blasts after Saturday”s derailment of a train carrying crude oil sent people fleeing as the explosions rocked the municipality of 6,000, about 250 kilometres east of Montreal. The prime minister says the federal Transportation Safety Board are investigating. Police are treating the area as a possible crime scene.

Federal safety minister announces resignation

THE CANADIAN PRESS STEINBACH, Man. A federal cabinet minister who suggested his opponents were allies of child pornographers and saw details of his sordid divorce on social media while he argued for increased Internet surveillance is leaving public life. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews announced Monday, in the leadup to an anticipated cabinet shuffle, that he was resigning as MP for the Manitoba riding of Provencher effective Tuesday. “I am leaving public life in order to focus on my family and to pursue opportunities in the private sector,” Toews said in a news release. Toews, 60, was first elected to the House of Commons in 2000 under the banner of the Canadian Alliance and was re-elected four times. In the last fed-

eral election in 2011, he won the seat for the Conservatives with just over 70 per cent of the vote. He was solicitor general and minister of justice before he was appointed to the public safety portfolio. He was also named president of the Treasury Board in 2007 and again in October 2008. “I’ve been in politics for a long time,” he told radio station CHSM in Steinbach, Man. “One of the commitments I made to my spouse by the time my young son goes to school, I will have left politics. He is entering Grade 1 this year and I think it is time to go. He said he leaves public office “at a time when I believe our country is more sensitive to the needs of victims, more fiscally sound and safer for citizens and future generations of Canadians.”

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation says Toews is entitled to a pension of $79,584 a year, indexed to inflation. “My sincere thanks to @toewsvic as he leaves Parliament,” tweeted Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “Best wishes for the future.” “Best wishes to my friend and colleague @ ToewsVic as he leaves public life after 13 years of service,” said Jason Kenney, minister of citizenship, immigration and multiculturalism. Toews was a polarizing political figure. The Globe and Mail newspaper disabled the comments section on the story about his departure because “an overwhelming number of readers were making offensive statements about other commenters and/or the individual or individuals mentioned in the story.”

Bennett prepares province for Hydro rate hikes


here’s a new sheriff in town for BC Hydro, and it didn’t take long for the political range war to resume. The new sheriff, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett, found himself on the barricades as soon as he got the hugely complex responsibility for energy and mines. His saddlebags bulge with reports on BC Hydro’s seemingly runaway costs, along with Premier Christy Clark’s “core review” to cut $50 million a year from government operations. NDP energy critic John Horgan highlighted the latest BC Hydro troubles in his assault on the B.C. Liberal budget. First there was a $140 million cost overrun on the Northwest Transmission Line, under construction north from Terrace to the tiny Tahltan village of Iskut and adjacent mine properties. Then BC Hydro revealed

results of an audit of its earthquake preparedness. “Condition red” was the key message. Basically, the sprawling utility has disaster plans for each of its dams or other power facilities, but no overall way to get the provincial power grid back up after a major earthquake. Horgan recited his list of BC Hydro sins after a decade of meddling by the BC Liberals: huge deferred debt revealed by the Auditor General, enormous liabilities for private power contracts, and more rate increases that Bennett has already admitted are on the way. And now they can’t even keep us safe from the big one. Bennett fired back. About $2 billion of that debt is for seismic upgrades for the 80-yearold Ruskin Dam in Maple Ridge, and the equally frail John Hart Dam on the Campbell River, built with wooden water pipes.



Major BC Hydro works slowed down after completion of Revelstoke and Mica dams in the 1980s, and now the work is more expensive. The Northwest Transmission Line is a partnership with Imperial Metals, which wants to power its Red Chris copper-gold-silver mine. Bennett said the company is not only paying for the last section to Iskut and the mine site, but pitching in for the main line as well. Ottawa paid $130 million to get remote communities off decades

of dependence on diesel generators. AltaGas, owner of one of those private power projects in the region, puts in $180 million to get connected to the grid. The line will open up more mining and hydro possibilities. The cost overrun traces back mainly to the shortage of high-skill labour such as geotechnical engineering that the remote region already faces. And this is before natural gas pipelines and LNG plants gear up. Bennett takes over from the last sheriff, Rich Coleman, who put BC Hydro through the wringer in 2011. Coleman soon abandoned his idea of putting off the Ruskin and John Hart upgrades (again) to keep rates low through the election, and saw the B.C. Utilities Commission jack up the rate increase to seven per cent to help slow the ballooning debt.

What’s ahead for rates? The utility is looking for 32 per cent in the next three years, says energy lawyer David Austin. He calculates that only 2.5 per cent is attributable to increased private power costs. Among other things, BC Hydro needs regional emergency centres capable of functioning after a Japan-sized quake, plus expansion. Bennett came clean on another reason for rate increases – the government’s increasing dependence on taking a “dividend” as BC Hydro’s lone “shareholder.” The newly updated budget tells us this annual “dividend” is past $500 million and rising fast: $545 million this year, $611 million next year and $684 million the year after.

Expansion benefits only a few

We disagree with and oppose wholeheartedly the proposed boundary expansion of Trail to include the Columbia Gardens Industrial Park and the Waneta Dam. We believe that this will only benefit the City of Trail and Teck. Teck is the largest property owner and as far as we can see, it will benefit the company’s bottom line to the detriment of Electoral Area ‘A’, Montrose and

Fruitvale. As far as the City of Trail is concerned, it has not done much for its economic development and diversification in the past and doesn’t seem to be doing much for it at the present. One just has to look at the number of businesses that have closed their doors over time. If the city could not manage economic development and

diversification in the past and in the present, why would putting more money in Trail’s coffers make any difference in the future? One only needs to look to see who is going to benefit by this move and we do not think the greater good of the communities in Electoral Area ‘A’, Montrose and Fruitvale are the uppermost in this plan. George Neigel Fruitvale

As Fulford describes it, Grant believed England in search of work. And while the historical that Canada was finished, “its reality of Anglo-Irish relations essence destroyed by the craftiis more tangled and complex ness of the Americans and the than popular accounts portray, lazy ineptitude of the Liberals.”   The anglophile Creighton it’s easy enough to see the basis for antagonism. When interests shared Grant’s antipathy clashed over the centuries, the towards both Americans and Irish generally drew the short Liberals. To illustrate the depth of his passion, Fulford notes straw. Similarly, it would be easy that Creighton even went so far to understand the likes of the as believing “it would have been Dutch resenting the Germans better if the Confederacy had or the French.

However, rise of the academic New Left. like most clichés, there’s a sub- And with Peter C. Newman at stantial element of underlying the editorial helm of Canada’s


largest daily newspaper, The Toronto Star, there was no shortage of platform space. Historically, Canadian anti-Americanism goes back as far as the United Empire Loyalists, those tens of thousands who, as a consequence of the American Revolution, fled from what was to become the United States. Seeking refuge in what remained of British North America, they provided the basis for a tradition innately wary of America and Americans. The “peace, order, and good government” associated with loyalty to the Crown was distinctly preferable to the rambunctiousness south of the border. The American national personality undoubtedly egged things along. Seen as brash, boastful, materialistic, and selfabsorbed, Americans simply got up a lot of Canadian noses. And it didn’t help that they were so successful. By the 1960s, the cumulative inflow of American capital had reached the point where it became fashionable to agonize over the extent to which Canada had allegedly become a “branch plant” economy. Then there were all the American movies that Canadians flocked to in theatres, the American programmes they watched on television, the American books they read, and the American music they listened to. If you were so disposed, it wouldn’t be difficult to work up a head of resentment. Fulford also notes that the one place in Canada where antiAmericanism didn’t flower was Quebec. Perhaps that’s because Quebecers were too busy resenting English-speaking Canadians. Human nature, it would seem, has its own imperatives.

OBITUARIES CLEAVELEY (NEE FORD), CATHERINE FRANCES — Our beloved mother passed away peacefully at KBRH in Trail, BC on the 4th of July 2013, one week short of her 92nd birthday. Catherine was born the eldest child to Harry and Edith Ford in Tisdale, SK on the 12th July, 1921. She married Joe and the couple moved to Trail in 1945, where they made their home and raised their children Jim, Sharon and Shirley. Mom struggled with health issues in her early years and overcame a major lung operation in the 50s. Despite this, Mom took great pride in keeping a wonderful home where family and friends were always welcome. She enjoyed many years of bowling and gained lasting friends. Joe and Cathy were able in later years to travel and often revisited great memories of tours to Disneyland and Nashville and were especially thrilled with their coast to coast tour of Canada. A highlight of Mom’s travels included a trip to Hawaii with cousin Lenore, daughter Sharon and granddaughter Renice. Involvement with the Trail Seniors afforded Mom many years of pleasure. Family was all-important to Dad and Mom. Annual trips to Saskatchewan were eagerly anticipated. Equally important were the numerous family gatherings with children and grandchildren. She was predeceased by her loving husband Joe in 1993 and is survived by her son Jim, daughters Sharon (Roger) and Shirley (Gary); grandchildren Pam, Renice, Matthew, Danielle, Janeane and Stacey; great grandchildren Alex and Sarah and one great-great grandchild Hunter. Her kind and compassionate heart will be forever treasured. Mom wished to acknowledge the dedicated and caring staff of the hospital and, in particular, Dr. Cheryl Hume whom Mom considered not only her doctor but a true valued friend.

Belgium king abdicating throne in favour of prince

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BRUSSELS, Belgium - Belgium’s King Albert announced that he will abdicate in favour of Crown Prince Philippe on July 21, the country’s independence day holiday. The move had been rumoured for weeks and will end nearly two decades of steady reign over a fractious kingdom, one increasingly torn apart by political strife between northern Dutchspeaking Flanders and French-speaking southern Wallonia. Frail at 79, King Albert will be handing over the throne to his son Philippe, who is 53. Albert said his age and health no longer allow him to carry out his functions as he would want to. “After a reign of 20 years I believe the moment is here to hand over the torch to the next generation,” Albert said in an address carried by all of Belgium’s major broadcasters. “Prince Philippe is well prepared to succeed me.” Belgium has had six kings since it came into being in 1830; Albert is the first to voluntarily abdicate the throne.

Fernie hikers recount grizzly attack BY TAMARA HYND Fernie Free Press

Brian Braconnier and Keith Farkas are very fortunate to be at home with their families after a close encounter with a grizzly. “We are so thankful we’re sitting here, the two of us, making these statements,” said Farkas. “Rather than our wives writing our obituaries.” The two Fernie men who were attacked by a grizzly bear on Wednesday morning shared their story at a press conference late Thursday evening. Both men, in their mid thirties, were hiking along a basin heading for the side of a ridge with heavy elk trails on Mount Proctor when a mother grizzly attacked. The men said what happened in 30 seconds seemed like an eternity. “I heard a growl and then we heard a second growl,” said Farkas. “Before we could even react, the grizzly was on us. She hit Brian in the back, knocked him over, took him downhill and out of my sight behind some shrubs. I couldn’t see what was going on. I could just hear him screaming my name and the bear growling. I saw a cub following her downhill and it was also growling. That’s when I reached for my (defender) shotgun that was strapped to the outside of my pack.” “She hit me four times in total,” explained Braconnier. “On the third time, she grabbed my arm with her mouth and flung me through the air. When I landed, I grabbed my pepper spray. When she came at me again, she was at an arms distance as I used the bear spray on her. It deterred her but she still ran me over. In two lunges she was

back up the hill towards Keith. I could hear him screaming but I couldn’t see a thing.” Farkas continued, “I was fumbling with the straps on my backpack trying to get the gun off. I was fumbling with the shells trying to load my gun. I managed to load a shell. I saw her paws. I took one shot. She stood up and seemed to writhe in pain like the shot had connected with her. Like lightening, she was around a corner and coming at me airborne from above. She clawed me and pushed me back. I landed on my back in the most terrifying position with my head downhill and my feet uphill. I was screaming. Her face was one foot away from my boot and she turned around and left.” “We knew we had to get out right away,” said Braconnier. They grabbed Farkas’s backpack that the bears had dragged a few meters down the trail. The men left in the same direction they had come, looking over their shoulders in fear that the grizzly was coming back. “We got to a safe zone,” said Farkas. “I was bleeding badly. I took off my shirt and put on bandages. I took a look at Brian’s hand. He had three cuts so I bandaged him too. Brian couldn’t see a thing. The pepper spray had hit him, the bear and me. Brian was practically blinded by the spray. We had an ok field (first aid) kit. I knew his wounds were worse than mine but I didn’t say anything to him. I just bandaged him up and said, ‘Come on. Let’s get going.’” “I knew right away this was an extreme situation,” said Farkas. “I knew we had get down the mountain. We had

to get home safe and I knew we had to go to the hospital.” What normally takes them two hours to hike, took them one hour to get down the mountain. When asked what they might do differently, Braconnier stated he would be more cautious of noises while Farkas said he will practice loading a shotgun as if it were a timely, stressful situation. Both men look remarkably healthy but their wounds are deep both emotionally and physically. Braconnier suffered injuries to his arms, legs and right wrist. Somehow her teeth managed to miss the main vein in his wrist by millimeters when she threw him through the air. His legs are scratched and bruised from being “ bounced around” by the bear. Farkas has puncture wounds on both arms from the bear’s claws so large that you could stick your finger into them. His left arm is swollen from the impact and it does not have full range of motion yet. “Both gentlemen did nothing wrong,” said CO Sgt. Joe Caravetta. “They’re smart. They were prepared. They had different levels of defense and they had a gun that wasn’t even loaded. The men were not hunting. They were out for a walk to do some scouting for their next elk hunt this fall.” “Three conservation officers looked for the grizzly for two days and we were unable to find any evidence that the bear had been seriously injured,” said Caravetta. “We searched that area with a fine-toothed comb and no blood was found. It’s possible that the bear got hit and it’s possible that it didn’t.”

Athletes give it their all in Kids Triathlon By Art Harrison Times Staff

It sometimes seems that kids today spend more time in front of a television or computer screen than they do participating in any kind of outdoor physical activity but that certainly wasn’t the case for a group of area kids over the weekend. Over 80 four to 12 year olds spent the day swimming, cycling, and running Saturday in the Kids Triathlon at Butler Park in Trail. The annual event was initiated four years ago as a joint effort by Gerick Cycle and Sports, The Teck Wellness and Learning Centre, and Trail Parks and Recreation. “There are so few events for kids and we’ve got a perfect set up here,” said event organizer, Gerald Klassen. “We want to start them young so they come back and stay involved in health and fitness. We try to keep the distances doable for each group and don’t focus on the results so we can keep it fun.” The kids were competing in separate age groups: four year olds, five and six year olds, seven and eight year olds, nine and 10 year olds, and 11 and 12 year olds with numerous parents and grandparents on hand to cheer them on. Each group started by swimming in the

Trail Aquatic Centre pool, followed by cycling on a set course through East Trail, and completing the event with a run to the finish line at Butler Park. The youngest of the competitors swam 25 metres, biked for just over a third of a kilometre, and ran for half a kilometre. The distances increased incrementally up to the 11 and 12 year olds swimming 100 metres, biking 3.4 kilometres and running for 1.5 km. “It’s a great event, I really enjoy being involved in it,” said Gord Menelaws, Teck Learning and Wellness Centre representative. “Teck pays half the entry fee for the kids and grandkids of employees, it helps to encourages the kids to participate.” The event requires dozens of volunteers to act as course marshals, life guards, timers, and provide support and encouragement for the participants. “There is a lot planning for an event like this,” said Trail Parks and Recreation Coordinator, Lisa Manaigre. “We have to ensure the safety of the competitors and make sure the course is achievable. It takes tons of volunteers to pull it off, we really need them to get this event to run.”

Horcoff to Dallas

THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers didn’t have a place for Shawn Horcoff in their youth movement, so they have traded him to the Dallas Stars. The Castlegar native and former Trail Smoke Eater was the Oilers’ captain but at 34 was out of place as part of a young core featuring Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov. General manager Craig MacTavish said at the end of the season he planned to trade Horcoff and gave the veteran the opportunity to talk to other teams. The Oilers received defenceman Philip Larsen and a 2016 seventh-round pick in the trade. Horcoff has two seasons left on a contract that counts US$5.5 million against the salary cap and pays him a total of $7 million.

Sports Slopitch showdown


Kimberley golfer Scoreboard wins junior title Baseball By Trevor Crawley Kimberley Bulletin

Art Harrison photo

A batter winds up for a big cut at the Trail Slopitch League wound up its 2013 season with a two-day tournament over the weekend at Haley Park. Six teams were in competition for the league title.

After squeaking into a playoff hole that featured a three-way tie, Kimberley golfer Jared DuToit emerged as the B.C. Junior Boys champion at the Revelstoke Golf Coures. DuToit, trailing by two strokes heading into the final round on Friday, played lights out right to the very end, tying a course record by shooting seven under par for a score of 65. Indeed, his fate came right down to the final hole as he trailed by only a stroke at the time, making an all-important birdie while both coleaders, Kevin Vigna and Jordan Lu, settled for par which set up the playoff. In front of a crowd of roughly 100 spectators, the three went to work on the 16th hole—a 405 par-4 to settle it all for the championship. Vigna and Lu had trouble with their tee shots, but duToit outdrove both his competitors by 40 yards, placing it right in the middle of the fairway. He put himself just off the green with a wedge on the approach shot, and chipped to within four feet of the pin to putt for par. The tee shots for both Vigna and Lu caused enough problems that made them post a bogey, sealing it up for duToit. Rossland’s Tyler McKay was the lone local golfer still playing on the final day. He carded a 79 to finish the tournament at plus-16 and tied for 46th place. Over the course of the tournament, duToit shot 71-68-73-65, and led the field after the second day. The third round he struggled, and dropped down to fourth, but stormed back on the final round to earn his championship title. After his third round, he came out guns blazing for the final 18 holes, posting three birdies in his first four holes, including the par-5 460 yard open hole—a feat he accomplished in every single round. “I started out playing well,” said duToit. “I started out birdie-birdie then kind of scraped around.” “I made only one bogey on five, then carried on to the back nine. Made three birdies and a nice one on 18 to kind of seal the deal and get myself into the playoff.”

Difficulty Level 2013 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.




THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - A federal judge in New York has upheld an arbitrator’s ruling that a Pennsylvania beauty queen must pay the Miss USA pageant $5 million for defaming Donald Trump’s pageant organization. Sheena Monnin resigned as Miss Pennsylvania last year, saying the Miss USA contest was rigged. She claimed another contestant learned the names of the top five finishers hours before the show was broadcast. Monnin said she decided to turn in her crown as soon as those same contestants were named during the show. She posted a series of messages on Facebook and spoke publicly about her claims. Trump’s Miss Universe Organization sued Monnin for defamation and an arbitrator ruled against her in December. The arbitrator said Monnin’s allegations cost the pageant a $5 million fee from a potential 2013 sponsor. Earlier this week, U.S. District Court Judge J. Paul Oetken upheld the arbitrator’s decision. Monnin had sought to have it overturned based on three grounds: the arbitrator overstepped his authority, his decision disregarded law, and she didn’t know the arbitration hearing was taking place. The judge disagreed. Monnin, of Cranberry, Pa., said in a Facebook post Thursday evening that she is glad the truth is out there, regardless of the outcome. “This is not about me being a ‘sore loser’ or wanting my ‘15 minutes of fame”’ she wrote. “This is about the MUO’s admission under oath that they manipulate the judges’ results to suit their own ends. This is not what they advertise to the public.” Pageant organizers claimed Monnin resigned because she disagreed with a decision to allow transgender contestants. They made public text from an email they said Monnin sent citing the decision to allow natural-born males into the competition as the reason for her resignation. A transgender contestant was initially denied entry to the Miss Universe Canada pageant because she wasn’t born female, but Trump overruled that decision.

TV LISTINGS Trailer Park Boys

The boys are back THE CANADIAN PRESS HALIFAX - Irreverent hosers Ricky, Julian and Bubbles will be back for another season of park pranks - but this time on the Internet. “Trailer Park Boys” stars Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay and Mike Smith say they’ve acquired the rights to the hit Canadian comedy franchise from the show’s original producers. And they’ve started pre-production on an eighth season of the mockumentary series that will be available on their new Internet channel, The acquisition does not include the recently completed third film in the franchise, tentatively titled “Trailer Park Boys 3: Don’t Legalize It.” Mike Clattenburg, Barrie Dunn and Mike Volpe were the original producers of the cult classic show that ended in 2008. In a statement, they say they’re happy Wells, Tremblay and Smith - who play foul-mouthed trio Ricky, Julian and Bubbles - will continue the brand. “While the three of us have moved on to different TV and film projects, the Boys are the only ones with the intimate knowledge and love of the show to keep Trailer Park Boys alive and well,” said Clattenburg.

Celine Dion


Singer helps rising star


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAS VEGAS - Celine Dion is throwing her star power behind a fellow French Canadian songstress who’s setting up shop across the street in Las Vegas. Dion is helping Veronic DiCaire launch “Veronic Voices,” which features impersonators of 50 female artists ranging from Whitney Houston to Carrie Underwood. DiCaire opened for Dion in Montreal in 2008 and succeeded in the French music world before launching a two-month residency at Bally’s casino on the Las Vegas Strip. It’s not the only project the 45-year-old Dion is working on. The Caesars Palace headliner says she’s looking forward to releasing her new album in October. The record includes a collaboration with R&B artist Ne-Yo and will be her first English project in six years.

Start with graduation gift to distant grandchild Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

She wrote back, “Who is this? I do not recognize the number.” That really hurt me. I gave nine years of my life to that little girl, trying to be a good step-grandmother. I wrote her back and said, “Once upon a time, you called me Grandmommie. I still love and miss you.” I have heard nothing more from her. My husband’s children have no respect for their father because he was always gone. I tried to overcome that for many years, but it went sour. What can we do to get these problems corrected? Should we send a graduation gift? -- Hurting in Oklahoma

allowed to dress this way? She says that I am the only person who has a problem with it, but I’m simply the only one willing to speak up. Firing her is not an option. -- Fairfield, Conn. Dear Fairfield: If there is no consequence for dressing so unprofessionally, there is no reason for her to change her clothes. Dress codes should be enforced. We recommend you talk to whoever is in charge and ask that a dress code be established and consequences spelled out -- including termination for someone who repeatedly and deliberately refuses to adhere to the requirements of the job. This girl undoubtedly believes her exhibitionism is appealing. But it is actually a source of ogling and amusement at her expense. She should save it for after hours. Dear “No Hypocrite in Paducah, Ky.,” who

is addicted to alcohol, criticized family members for being addicted to food. He said, “How is it more legitimate to grab a doughnut when under stress than to pour myself a cocktail?” There is a HUGE difference. I grew up in a home

where both of my parents were alcoholics. Alcohol changes a person’s behavior toward others. Food does not. I would much rather have had obese parents than emotionally damaging alcoholics. I wouldn’t have needed so many years in thera-

Dear Oklahoma: First, while your relationship with these children seems distant, let’s not mix apples and oranges. Unless your phone number is programmed into this grandchild’s phone, your name would not come up when you texted, and she would not have known who was contacting her. You can call the children and grandchildren directly and ask how to warm up the relationship. But we can’t promise anything will change unless your husband becomes more involved, and he does not seem inclined. But please send a graduation gift. It’s a start. Dear Annie: I am at my wits’ end. I have tried every angle imaginable to stop an employee from showing her butt crack. I even bought her a long T-shirt. She wore it once and says she can’t find it. Am I wrong to think that she should not be

Dear Annie: This is my second marriage. My husband has two children from his first marriage and a stepdaughter. His first wife had several affairs. I feel it may have been due to his lack of support for her. He was always working and never had time for his wife and kids. We married five years after his divorce. My husband and I are happy, and he is devoted to me. But he continues to work a great deal, and I am often lonely. I know it would help to have my own outside interests and hobbies and to go out with my friends, but I miss the closeness I had with my first husband. We did everything together. The problem now is his kids. We have not spoken to them in nearly three years. When his oldest granddaughter sent us a graduation invitation, I sent her a text thanking her for inviting us.




YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, July 10, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a great day with fun-loving possibilities. Enjoy sports events, the arts, playful times with children and social exchanges with others. Be a kid again! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although your pace is busy, domestic conversations will be significant today. You might even want to cocoon briefly at home to catch your breath. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Talk to others about your concerns, because you want the truth. In particular, you have concerns about money, possessions and issues from the past. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) With the Sun and Jupiter in your sign now, it’s easy for things to come your way. Therefore, speak up about issues with cash flow or

something you own. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Because the Moon is in your sign today, you might feel more emotional than usual. No biggie -- this happens every month for two days. But your luck is stronger. (Oh yeah.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Behind-the-scenes meetings might help you promote your agenda with groups today. Perhaps you need to line up someone on your side? This could be an old friend from the past who is willing to help. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) People see you in a flattering light now. Enjoy opportunities to travel. Today in particular, a female acquaintance might help you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) People in authority will seek out your creative input about something today. (They might know

about something you have achieved in your personal life.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Do something to shake it up a little because you want a change of scenery. Of course, ideally you would love to jet off somewhere and really blow this popstand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a good day to ask

for assistance or support. You might also want to ask for a loan or a mortgage or if you can borrow something that someone owns. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You’re working hard now to clean up loose details and finish projects at work. However, when working with others, be prepared to compromise and accommodate their needs. (Just for today.)

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Despite your urge to play and goof off, you can actually be productive at work today. A female acquaintance might help you. Accept this offer. YOU BORN TODAY You’re sensitive, careful and observant. You wait, watch and strategize -- then you act! You like to move at your own pace. While you wait, many of you will quietly
