Search continues for missing man presumed drowned


Family seeks answers and closure BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff


Children’s musician Will Stroet stopped by the Trail and District Public Library Monday as part of the summer reading program, much to the delight of 30 children who sang-along and danced to his high-energy bilingual songs about road safety, animals and sports.

A family is left wading in the Columbia River searching for their missing son to provide closure to a tragedy. Fruitvale's Andrew Evans, 28, has been classified as a missing person but is also presumed drowned after a police chase resulted in him disappearing in the water last Wednesday. The Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire/ Rescue continues to patrol the Columbia and so does his dad Dobie Evans of Thrums, who is offering a $25,000 reward for his son's body. Meanwhile his mom Tammy Evans and his sister Alisha Evans of Castlegar view the incident as a mishap that could have been avoided. The Kootenay Boundary Regional Detachment Crime Reduction Unit and members from the Trail and Greater District RCMP attended a home in Glenmerry to arrest Evans for several unendorsed arrest warrants for breach of conditions late that afternoon. The operation went sideways when Evans jumped out of a second-storey window while the officers were still on the main floor. The perimeter officers were unable to intercept him and he ran through the property and into the river, according to Cpl. Dan Moskaluk, media relations for the South East District. From the shoreline, officers watched as Evans swam back toward the shore, where he remained in the water holding onto a tree branch while he spoke to officers at the river's edge. The rescue boat was immediately dispatched but it was too late as Evans eventually let go of the branch and floated downstream until he See PURSUIT, Page 3

Reverend and community builder moving on Farewell dinner planned for Thursday in Warfield BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

Uniting people in conversation has been a local reverend’s passion for almost 10 years, and now that he is leaving, the community is coming together to share in a warm farewell. The Trail United Church

invites everyone to join in a pot luck supper to say goodbye to Reverend Keith Simmonds and his family on Thursday at the Warfield Hall, 5:30 p.m. Simmonds has been ministering to members of Communities in Faith and Pastoral Charge in Rossland, Trail, Beaver Valley, and Salmo since 2004. He is relocating to Vancouver Island to be closer to aging family members and to minister

at Duncan United Church. “Keith has been very much involved in the four churches and in community outreach,” said Merle Ruckstuhl, 70-year member of the Trail United Church. “He’s really going to missed not only in our pastoral charge but also in the community.” Simmonds philosophy is all about community and creating a better world by pulling people together and having conversations


about what is important to them. “I was called into doing something that was bigger than me,” he said. “I wanted to learn how to make a safe place for the community to come together to talk and work on issues that matter to them.” He has fond memories of his ministry, but one in particular stands out as his first “teachable moment” in Trail. Having a work his-

tory as cabinet assistant in the NDP government in the 90’s, Simmonds was passionate and focused on social justice, labour unions, and politics when he delivered his first Labour Day homily to the Trail congregation almost a decade ago. “Things were going well until then,” he said. “That morning I talked about the Israelites leaving Egypt after years in captivity,” said Simmonds.

Trail Community in Bloom flowers are in full bloom and await a visit from judges who will soon be critiquing the city on its involvement in a Community in Bloom international competition.

‘Downtown dinners’ provide fond memories FROM PAGE 1 “And I said that things don’t seem to be changing much.” The sermon reflected his thoughts about the city’s turmoil because during this time people were out of work, on strike, and feeling frustrated, he said. He remembers saying that “working people feel like they are under the thumb of their masters,” and “people are being treated like property by their employers.” After the sermon, Simmonds had a long-time member of congregation approach him to request a private conversation. “I thought,’what a thoughtful man,’”explained Simmonds. “He understood how my history formed my beliefs and passion that was reflected in my sermon.” However, that was not the case. Simmonds said the church member was in management at Teck (then on strike) who told him that, for the first time in his life, “he did not feel like a member of the church,” and wanted to tell Simmonds how hurt he felt by his words.

“He has been instrumental in not only identifying the needs and building programs, but also changing community perception and building acceptance.” Sheila Adcock

“That was my earliest teaching memory,” said Simmonds. “I really had to think about how what I say is received by people. And I learned that it is not just about talking, but living my belief that all voices belong around the table and I must always make room for everyone.” “He is a very thoughtful man and we’ve been good friends since,” he added. Simmonds has many memories that bring a smile to his face but one of his most pleasant is recurring and involves the church’s “downtown residents dinners.” The dinners began in 2005, when a group of dedicated volunteers began cooking dinner for at least 100 people on the third Sunday of the month. “Every meal is excellent, with food that is wholesome and tastes great,” he said.

The company is interesting and the hall is filled with voices raised in conversation and care. “It is a wonderful event and I attend as often as I can to say grace.” The recurrent part is that every time Simmonds walks around downtown Trail someone approaches him, eager to say, “what a fine meal you put on last Sunday, Reverend.” Simmonds said he’s given up on explaining that he has very little to do with the meal preparation, and he is just happy to be part of the community at the Trail church. “So I just nod and smile and say, ‘Yes it was pretty darned good, wasn’t it?’” “That is one of my fondest memories,” he chuckled. As part of the church community, Simmonds has been involved in numerous advocacy and outreach

• Security Installation and Service • ULC Security Monitoring • Medical Alert Installation & Monitoring

programs, including everything from “Zumba for toddlers,” to growing the food bank and advocating for the homeless. “The church is stepping in because school districts and cities are stepping back in freely providing public space,” he explained. “The church will provide the space with a little help to cover the utilities.” Since 2011, Simmonds has been involved with the Extreme Weather Emergency Shelter, a temporary shelter in the basement of the Trail United Church. “Keith has been a passionate advocate for the vulnerable citizens in our community,” said Sheila Adcock, shelter coordinator. “He has been instrumental in not only identifying the needs and building programs, but also changing community perception and building acceptance.” “I have so much respect for him and wish him well in all his future endeavours.” The Trail United Church will be run by its council, with a minister from Creston, Nelson, Castlegar or Grand Forks, in attendance for weddings and funerals.

Pursuit should have been called off, says mother FROM PAGE 1 reached a set of rapids known as Rock Island, where he disappeared from sight for a short period of time until he resurfaced only to be swept under again. “If this is it, I just want people to know the truth of him,” Alisha told the Times. “He’s not who they’re making him out to be.” Alicia and Tammy aren’t making excuses for Andrew’s run-in with the law but do understand the frustration and evils he dealt with in his life. He would do just about anything to stay out of jail, including risking his life against the mighty river. “Andrew had been suicidal and had several failed attempts of suicide and not the kind of suicide where you’re like ‘Oh, I’m cutting myself.’ It was like holding onto the brink of life and if we hadn’t found you, you’d be dead,” said Alisha. “They knew he had drug problems. “You know his state of mind, you don’t have to ask, you can see it.” She considers the outcome a dangerous pursuit that should have been aborted. And wonders why the cops would chase him down to the water, only to address him from the shoreline. “If you’re going to chase him down to the river you damn well better jump in,” she added. “I mean you’re obviously pursuing him that much.” His mom spoke to him just before the incident unfolded. She regrets giving him tough love and not helping him before “petty” crime resulted in his reported death. But the worst part is not having closure, not being able to identify her son’s body. “As far as I’m concerned they should have just shot him because at least we’d have a body,” she said. “Had I known what I know right now, I would have given him money and told him to get on the bus and get out of town.” Andrew’s mom found out about her presumed drowned son from her ex-mother-in-law that evening, a phone call she believes she should have received from the police. “That’s not professional on the police’s behalf,” she said. “My son is gone and you’re going to let somebody else phone and tell me, who knew before me.” There has been no time for grieving, according to the family. Because there is a chance Andrew could still be alive, police felt it was necessary to inform the public immediately. “With a case of this nature here, of course there is close consultation with the family. There was notification that was made the day of and then given, with the respect that we have a missing person, there would be some urgency as well to get the information out,” explained Moskaluk. “It could stand to reason that you might have him washed up but still alive, that he exited the river, there is a whole bunch of scenarios that could play out.” The regional fire boat scoured the shoreline Monday and plan to do so again Wednesday and Friday this week. Andrew was last seen wearing a white shirt and green/blue shorts. He’s described as a white man, 5’8”, 135 pounds with dirty blonde hair and blue eyes.

Locked out Fortis BC workers continue to man the picket line at the system control centre in Warfield. No talks have been scheduled between the two sides.

Fortis, union at odds over essential services By Art Harrison Times Staff

Two weeks into the FortisBC lockout of over 200 International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) members there appears to be no end in sight and the union is crying foul over the company’s actions. IBEW Business Manager, Rod Russell, says that the company’s actions are violating the Essential Services Order by finding “loopholes” and performing IBEW duties. The order, in effect, stipulates that certain IBEW members are required to maintain the necessary systems to ensure public safety and continuity of electrical service to customers while management staff take over only non-essential duties. “The Essential Services Order has specific limita-

Trail man’s body identified

tions and requirements,” said Russell. “In our opinion the company is contravening the order.” The union claims that, according to the order set out by the Labour Relations Board (LRB) in April, FortisBC management is not allowed to take electrical meter readings from customers, but instead are taking photographs of the meters and submitting the photos for billing. They also claim management is performing new electrical hook-ups. The IBEW submitted its objections to the LRB last week and both sides are awaiting a decision. According to Neil Pobran, FortisBC corporate communications representative, the company is following the Essential Services Order as it understands it.

By Times Staff The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man whose body was recovered from Little Wilson Lake near New Denver on July 9. The body did in fact belong to 32-year-old Michael

1834 3rd Ave

Denver. The body was discovered last week by three men camping in the area and notified the RCMP. The initial examination did not reveal evidence of foul play.

money by doing this.” However, FortisBC’s Pobran says that the company has always wanted to reach an agreement and is willing to meet with their union counterparts. “We’re proceeding according to the order and talking with the union daily to provide updates,” Pobran said. “We’ve put forward an offer that balances the interests of our customers and the company and we hope to get back to negotiations and achieve it.” FortisBC closed the gates on electrical workers on June 26, activating an Essential Services Order that had been approved by the B.C. Labour Relations Board in April, affecting employees in power generation, transmission, and distribution in the West Kootenay and Okanagan.

“The IBEW has brought their concerns to the LRB and we’re waiting for a decision,” he said. “We’re looking for clarity from them.” The IBEW’s Russell says that from their perspective, the situation is just very frustrating. “We don’t have a lot of tools in our tool box in the way of job action,” said Russell. “If they can just go on with business as usual then it’s pretty hard for us to make our point.” Russell says that although the union is fully prepared to return to the bargaining table the company has shown no interest in talking. “We’re not that far apart,” he said. “I don’t see how this lockout makes any sense business-wise, it’s hard to see how they’re saving a lot of

Measles outbreak spreads THE CANADIAN PRESS WHISTLER, B.C. - A measles outbreak in two more British Columbia communities could be a sign of more cases to come, says a medical health officer who is urging parents to get their children vaccinated. Dr. Paul Martiquet of the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority said he’s concerned that eight cases of the highly contagious disease have been confirmed in the province since mid-June. “It’s been three years since we have seen measles (in B.C.),” he said. Measles can be caught by just being in the same room with someone who has the disease. Martiquet said one in every 3,000 Canadians with measles dies of the infection. He said the four cases identified this week in Whistler and Pemberton are not linked to the four cases diagnosed in Bowen Island and the North Shore last month, raising questions about the outbreak’s origins. “It is possible that it’s been brought in internationally, or it’s possible that it’s just been circulating in the community without us knowing,” he said, adding it may be more likely that an overseas visitor to a tourism destination such as Whistler had the disease. Martiquet said he is worried that

false information about vaccinations has increased the likelihood of an outbreak. “What we’ve seen over the years, especially with measles, is a decreased uptake of the vaccine based on faulty scientific studies that were done in the U.K. that turned out basically to be bogus,” he said. Martiquet said one study, which was published in the highly respected journal The Lancet in 1998, linked the measles vaccine to autism. It has since been retracted and the author, Andrew Wakefield, lost his medical licence in 2010. “This a wake-up call,” Martiquet said. “Measles is a killer. It can be prevented by a safe and effective vaccine, and we are requesting parents - especially with their newborns and infants - to avail themselves to the childhood vaccine series for measles that starts at 12 months, and a second dose at 18 months.” Officials recommend vaccinations for adults and for children over a year old if they not have received the two necessary doses. Anyone who has already had the infection is immune and officials say adults born before 1970 are likely to be immune. The last outbreak of measles in B.C. was in 2010, when 70 cases were diagnosed following the Olympics.

Prizes support urban aboriginals By Tom Fletcher Black Press

Projects in Penticton, Victoria and Vancouver to improve circumstances for B.C. aboriginal people who live off reserve have been awarded prizes of $15,000 each to continue their work. B.C. Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad announced winners Monday of a province-wide competition for community-based projects that was launched in February. There were 21 entries, and winners are: • Penticton Peach Festival aboriginal cultural village, presenting traditional food and ceremonies to increase community collaboration and reduce racism. • Arts For Wealth, a program of the Victoria Native Friendship Centre that pays honorariums to aboriginal artists to produce original works for auction at cultural and charitable events. • Vancouver Native Health Society’s aboriginal instant kitchen, a cooking program that passes on traditional food gathering and preparation along with nutrition theory, food label education and hands-on cooking, shopping and gardening skills.

Rustad noted that 74 per cent of B.C.’s aboriginal people live off reserves, and 60 per cent of those live in urban areas. The contest was created in conjunction with the B.C. Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres. “This competition was really about finding out the groovy things that are happening in the communities around British Columbia, and honouring that and recognizing that that’s where the solutions are,” said Paul Lacerte, the association’s executive director.

Gangsters sentenced THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - The five men who admitted to conspiring to murder the leaders of a rival Metro Vancouver gang have been handed sentences ranging from 11 to 14 years. The men pleaded guilty last week and the sentences are in the range of what was suggested by both the Crown and defence for the United Nations Gang members and their associates. However Young Sung Lee, Dilun Heng, Barzan Tilli-Choli, Karwan Saed and Ion Kroitoru will not be spending that long in prison after B.C. Supreme Court Justice Janice Dillon gave the men double credit for time already served. The murder plot, fuelled by rewards of up to $300,000 offered by the head of the UN Gang, set off a gang war across the Lower Mainland in 2008 where brazen shootings were a near-daily occurrence.

Lawsuits launched

THE CANADIAN PRESS LAC-MEGANTIC, Que. - A motion to file a class-action lawsuit has been registered by two Lac-Megantic residents in the opening shot of what could be a long and complex legal battle. The motion has been filed by two men who want to sue the owners Briefs of the train that derailed in their town, killing an estimated 50 people. One of them is Yannick Gagne, who owned the Musi-Cafe bar where many people died in the tragedy; the other is Guy Ouellet, whose partner of five years, Diane Bizier, lost her life in the blaze. Three of Gagne’s employees also died in the fire. Gagne and Ouellet would not speak to reporters about the lawsuit on Monday, referring all inquiries to their legal team. The defendants include the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic railway, company chairman Edward Burkhardt and president Robert Grindrod. Also cited as a defendant is train operator Tom Harding. Harding’s role is a central question in ongoing investigations into the tragedy; his own company called him a hero one day, then announced the next he had been suspended amid concerns about his role in the disaster.



Evacuees being evicted

THE CANADIAN PRESS GIMLI, Man. - A Manitoba hotel is being forced to close and dozens of flood evacuees are being evicted because no one is paying their bills. Mike Bruneau owns Misty Lake Lodge in Gimli which has been home for 65 aboriginal people displaced by the 2011 spring flood. He says he’s closing down in September because he is owed $3 million and hasn’t been paid in months. Bruneau says the Manitoba Association of Native Firefighters has been given millions to care for evacuees but they haven’t paid him since he accused them publicly of squandering money. He says the federal government hasn’t paid him either, despite repeated phone calls. The firefighters organization is being audited by Ottawa and has said it no longer wants to be responsible for long-term evacuees.


Cameras target speeders THE CANADIAN PRESS REGINA - Drivers passing through highway construction zones in Saskatchewan could now find themselves on camera. The province has started using photo radar to catch speeders in highway construction zones. The move to improve safety comes after a flag person was struck and killed in August 2012. MLA Darryl Hickie, who is heading up a traffic safety committee, says there are three of the mobile radar devices that will be deployed across Saskatchewan. Photos will be taken of vehicles going faster than 60 kilometres an hour and then sent to the RCMP, who can issue tickets. The camera, which is also used in Alberta and Manitoba, can take clear images of vehicles up to 150 metres away.

Cabinet shuffle keeps old guard on economy THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - To get a feeling for Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet shuffle, a glance at the seating arrangement inside Rideau Hall’s august ballroom spoke volumes. In the front rows, veteran cabinet ministers held on to the top economic and international files that the Conservative government has long declared its top priority. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, Treasury Board President Tony Clement, Trade Minister Ed Fast, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird and Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver comprise the team handling key issues like job creation, oil pipelines and a Canada-Europe free trade deal. Directly behind them was a group of long-time politicians in new portfolios charged with backing them up on the economic front - Industry Minister James Moore, Employment and Social Development Minister Jason Kenney and Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel. Harper banked on the economy as a winning issue for the Conservatives in the 2011 election, and appears to be adopting the same strategy for 2015. “The team Canadians elected in 2011 is deep and it is talented. Many younger members of Parliament have earned more responsibility and are ready for more responsibility,” Harper said outside Rideau Hall on a sweltering July day. In the posterior rows, an entirely different demographic - new, younger MPs and women, taking up some of the social portfolios and junior minister posts. Bilingual, Metis Manitoba MP Shelly Glover nabbed Canadian Heritage; pediatric surgeon Kellie Leitch was

named labour minister; and former Canadian diplomat Chris Alexander took over from Jason Kenney at Citizenship and Immigration. Pierre Poilievre, one of Harper’s go-to, hyper-partisan MPs for taking on the opposition, fills the democratic reform portfolio and thus the daunting task of Senate reform. The new ministers have all served as parliamentary secretaries, carrying the government’s message regularly on television panels and during question period. The new faces were the ones emphasized most by the Prime Minister’s Office - Alexander and Michelle Rempel, minister of state for western economic development, were the pair selected to speak to the media following the official ceremony. “As someone who has been in public service for Canada since 1991, to be a minister, to be in this place, with eight colleagues who are joining the Privy Council for the first time, it’s an emotional moment for us,” Alexander said. Putting an even finer point on its goal of achieving a younger, more contemporary feel, the PMO released the names of each appointment via Twitter instead of by email, fax or handout. Harper also confirmed Monday the government would deliver a throne speech, complete with a “renewed policy agenda,” when the House of Commons resumes in the fall. Harper’s government has appeared sensitive to the optics of a front bench that will eventually take on the NDP with its young, diverse caucus and the Liberals with their popular new leader, 41-year-old Justin Trudeau. The number of women in cabinet grew by two to 12 - 31 per cent of the

ministry, compared with 27 per cent before the shuffle. The NDP responded soon after the swearing-in ceremony with a news conference held by two female MPs - deputy leader Megan Leslie and Quebec MP Rosane Dore Lefebvre. “If we look at the economic portfolios, it’s the same people. (Harper) talked about fresh faces, there was all this hype about more women in different portfolios, and those portfolios are exactly the same,” said Leslie. “If the prime minister...actually thought it was time for a new direction, those key portfolios would be moved around.” The shuffle was also notable for those who did not make the cut. The Senate itself was absent from Rideau Hall. The Prime Minister’s Office had already signalled it would no longer include the Conservative leader in the upper chamber in cabinet, hoping to sever at least some ties with the Senate spending scandal. Party whip Gordon O’Connor was replaced by B.C. MP John Duncan, who resigned from cabinet earlier this year after he revealed he had written to a Tax Court judge on behalf of a constituent. Duncan is well-liked in caucus - a fact that could help after a season of some discontent in the backbenches, and tensions to come should some MPs be unhappy they were passed over for promotion. Former Environment Minister Peter Kent is also out of cabinet, replaced in the job by Leona Aglukkaq. Several other, older ministers had previously indicated they were departing, such as Vic Toews, Diane Ablonczy and Marjory LeBreton.

Loblaws makes bid for Shoppers THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Loblaw Companies Ltd. announced a friendly deal Monday to buy Shoppers Drug Mart Corp. for $12.4 billion in cash and stock, combining Canada’s largest grocery and pharmacy chains. Under the terms of the agreement, Shoppers will keep its brand name and operate as a separate division of Loblaw. “I have long believed that the next chapter for growth at Loblaw should be based in a vision that combined health, wellness and nutrition. Loblaw combining with Shoppers Drug Mart is the ultimate expression of that vision,” said Galen Weston, executive chairman of Loblaw, in a conference call with analysts Monday. “Not only does this transaction make compelling financial sense, it establishes a truly innovative platform for the future,” Weston

said. Canadian retailers have faced increasing competition from large U.S. chains, such as Target, which began to roll out its stores across the country earlier this year. c Pilla, president and CEO of

Shoppers Drug Mart and the Loblaw executives told analysts that they don’t anticipate any store closings as a result of this transaction and they endorsed the current use of associate owners at Shoppers Drug Mart.

Empty seats for political theatre


remier Christy Clark didn’t win a seat in time to join her 48 fellow B.C. Liberal MLAs in the legislature for the summer session she ordered up. By the time the byelection in Westside-Kelowna is certified by Elections B.C., Clark will be off to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont.  to meet with her fellow premiers in what is now loftily called the Council of the Federation. These gatherings used to be called First Ministers’ Conferences, and there was a set ritual, largely designed for the consumption of network television. Provincial premiers ganged up on the prime minister to demand federal “funding” for every conceivable need, just as municipal leaders get together each year to present their demands to the B.C. government. Prime Minister Stephen Harper ended the show, declining to play the role of villain in this bit

of political summer stock theatre, and it’s unlikely that any future national leader would reverse this prudent decision. The result, at least among western premiers, has been a quieter, more pragmatic effort to work together, rather than clumsy attempts to play a shell game with taxpayers’ pockets. The public got tired of this routine some time ago. I don’t need a poll to tell me this is one of the reasons for the decline in voter participation and engagement in issues. Today, politicians frequently remind themselves out loud that there is “only one taxpayer” supporting the squabbling layers of this over-governed country. And yet, the same mistake keeps being made over and over by opposition politicians, and dutifully reported by the news media. The notion that all problems can and should be solved by “more gov-



ernment funding” is now so engrained in our education system that it seems inescapable. One of the NDP’s big “gotcha” items last week was the failure of the B.C. government to buy the latest sonar technology to locate and recover the bodies of people who have drowned in one of our thousands of lakes and rivers. As with the healthcare  system, as soon as something is invented, some assume a right to it, regardless of cost.

Another big opposition target was the province’s failure to buy up remote properties in the Kootenays that have been discovered to be at high risk of further landslides such as the one that swept through a year ago. The question of limits for protecting people who choose to build homes in risky locations seldom comes up in our politicalmedia theatre.  The media’s  key ingredients are sympathetic victims to fit their narrative that all corporations and governments are greedy, stingy, callous and incompetent in everything they do. What the opposition has dubbed “Christy Clark’s wheelchair tax” is another case in point. A Fraser Health  Authority  official patiently explained what was really going on here. An average $35 monthly rent for wheelchairs is charged at the majority of care facilities, which are contracted by the health authority. Operators

charge as they see fit for maintenance, disinfection and replacement of this equipment, for patients who don’t own their own chairs. In September, a $25 fee is to be extended to the few facilities still directly run by Fraser Health, which have aging equipment and no fees. In all facilities, the fee is waived for those who can’t afford it. It would be useful for our politicians to frankly discuss the trend towards contracted health services, and the role of user fees in forcing  people to take more responsibility for maintaining their own health. But that is not what happens. The narrative of dumping frail, impoverished seniors from their wheelchairs has no relationship to reality, but it’s how post-modern political theatre is done.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Universal’s minions ran away with the box office for the second week in a row. With $44.8 million in domestic ticket sales, the animated sequel “Despicable Me 2” outdid the debuts of the Adam Sandler comedy “Grown Ups 2” and Guillermo Del Toro’s monstersversus-robots action flick “Pacific Rim.” Sony was pleased with Sandler’s second-best movie opening of his career with $42.5 million in sales. But the third-place finish of the big-budget movie “Pacific Rim” with $38.3 million represented a disappointing start for Warner Bros. and partner Legendary Entertainment.

Berry marries in France THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARIS - Halle Berry married her fiance, French actor Olivier Martinez, in a weekend ceremony in a village church where princes are buried in France’s Burgundy region. The owner of the Chateau de Vallery, where the couple stayed with their 60 guests, said on Sunday that the betrothal a day earlier ended with a dinner and an unusual fireworks display of water, fire and snow - in the chateau gardens. Patrice Vansteenberghe said the actress - 46 and pregnant - and her 47-year-old husband “were very beautiful and very happy.”

It is clear that we all should Canada’s has, for decades, have been paying more atten-

tion as to whether our governments were shielding us from the risks of transporting oil by rail. The same goes for Canada’s non-strategy on climate change. Climate change is, in fact, the “everything” issue – it is law and order; it is the right to life; it is getting to work on time; it is looking after your house and your kids – because climate change puts almost everything anyone cares about in serious jeopardy. We must ask if there a government in Canada that will take prevention seriously even if it means saying no to the oil industry. Will governments even discuss the option of pumping less oil, both for reasons of climate change prevention and to ensure public safety? For it is only government, and especially the federal government, that can organize the country to respond to climate change. It is clear that we need serious action, most likely based on the spurned but straightforward option to tax greenhouse gas emissions, if we are to invest heavily in prevention and mitigation. Yet there is only this sound of engines idling. Gus Van Harten is a professor at Osgoode Hall Law School of York University.

An editorial from the Guelph Mercury On Friday, three permanent residents of Canada went to court demanding that they be granted citizenship in this wonderful country without having to swear allegiance to the Queen. Let’s hope they fail miserably. Chaos would ensue if they win. That victory would scrap the oath that has essentially been in place for 146 years and require the crafting of a new statement to which aspiring citizens would have to consent. This, in fact, appears to be the goal of the trio of anti-monarchists who argued their case before the Ontario Superior Court in Toronto. One, an Irish citizen who has lived here for 50 years, says he is a republican and should not be compelled to swear allegiance to a monarch. It’s worth pointing out that no one is forcing him to do anything. He can remain true to his beliefs and also remain living in this country without being a citizen. He can become a citizen, then work to end the monarchy. Becoming a citizen is a voluntary act and he is free

indeed those citizens, to set the rules and conditions for individuals who want to obtain citizenship. As part of that, the government has the right to establish the citizenship oath. Canada is a constitutional monarchy. Elizabeth is, according to Canada’s constitution, Canada’s head of state. She is officially the Queen of Canada. Far from being a historic anomaly or the political equivalent of some vestigial organ like an appendix, the Crown is a living, integral part of our parliamentary democracy. Remember how, in a critical moment in 2008, Prime Minister Stephen Harper was allowed to suspend Parliament only after receiving permission from the governor general - the Queen’s representative. It is not simply reasonable, it is eminently sensible that the citizenship oath reflects this reality. There is no need to change Canada’s citizenship oath unless a significant groundswell of Canadians urges the government to act. It should be the task of the government, not individual permanent residents acting on narrow and personal motives, to define a prized and priceless citizenship.

Van harten

Preserve oath to the Queen to choose whether he will take this step or not. But what if he wins his case? Let’s say that in the future, the government requires newcomers to swear their loyalty to the nation of Canada as a condition of being granted citizenship rights - which include voting and carrying a Canadian passport. What if a few years later, a newcomer who disagrees with the concept of big state governments, an anarchist for instance, objects to this new oath? Will Canada have to rewrite it again? So let’s say the next precondition is loyalty to the people of Canada? What if a newcomer who identifies with Quebec sovereigntists finds that unsatisfactory? Will the federal government keep reviewing, revising, revamping, each time someone objects, no matter how arbitrary, trivial or obscure the objection? Do individuals who are not citizens but wish to be so have the right to dictate the wording of the oath they will take? That would be absurd. Canadian voters freely elect their federal government and that government has authority on behalf of those voters,

OBITUARIES KASSIAN, HAZEL — September 27, 1924June 2, 2013 Graveside service will be held 11am Monday, July 22nd at Mountainview Cemetary. *** BURGER, THEODORE EDWIN (TED) — passed away suddenly at his home in Trail on July 8, 2013. Ted was born on March 4, 1928 at Pincher Creek, Alberta. His family moved to Christina Lake, B.C. and had a farm and later a campground. Ted loved to attend all of the barn dances. Ted logged with his dad Charles in the Cascade, Grand Forks and Christina Lake areas and then later in the Kootenays where he married Doreen Gresley-Jones of Rossland. They settled in Rossland, where they raised their family. Ted was a logger and sawyer at Hadikin’s sawmill in Castlegar. Ted started his popular roofing business in the 70’s and continued until his passing at 85 years. Ted was predeceased by his loving wife Doreen of 54 years, son Peter, parents Alice and Charles and brother Dwayne.

The Kootenay Robusters team is taking a three-week break before resuming their paddling in August.


Robusters paddle in Lethbridge SUBMITTED The Kootenay Robusters Dragon Boat Team recently competed in the recreational women’s division of the Lethbridge Dragon Boat Festival. The event was held at Henderson Lake on July 5, 6 and 7. Since launching their dragon boat at the beginning of May, the team, with members from Trail, Rossland, Grand Forks, Christina Lake and Castlegar,  has been paddling three times a week   under

the direction of coach Trish Ostlund, to get ready for this early season challenge.   In total, 16 women’s teams raced each other for top honors, competing in four heats to determine placement.  By the end of the tournament, the Robusters had taken first place in the A division consolation round.  Considering that the top four teams who took part in the A division medal round were youthful amazons, the Robusters   (whose average

age is 60) were quite pleased with their results – placing fifth overall. Most dragon boat festivals hold a special race for breast cancer survivors, since so many women’s teams have been organized to provide emotional and physical support to survivors and to raise awareness in communities across the world. For this race, the Robusters blended with a team from Cranbrook, Abreast in the Rockies, since

neither team had enough survivors to compete on their own. Despite never having paddled together before, the combined group managed a second place finish, only one second behind the winning team. The Robusters are now taking a break for three weeks and will be starting their practices again early in August – with a plan to compete in the Penticton Dragon Boat Festival in early September.


Canadian-born ‘Glee’ actor found dead in Vancouver

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - Richard Monteith struggled to hold back his sobs on Sunday as he laid down a bouquet of white flowers outside the Vancouver hotel where his cousin and “Glee” actor Cory Monteith died the previous day. Squatting with his head in his hands, Richard’s shoulders shook as he wiped away his tears before he carefully tucked a card into his bouquet. His flowers sat next to another bouquet and a stuffed animal - tributes to the Canadian actor who Vancouver police con-

firmed died on Saturday. Richard said little, only mentioning that he and Monteith were “decently close,” and the two had last seen each other in Vancouver in April. Monteith, who played the role of football player and singer Finn Hudson on the popular television series “Glee”, was found dead in his room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel on Saturday afternoon. Police said the cause of death still must be determined, but investigators do not believe foul play was involved.

Tributes from celebrities and fans of “Glee” poured in on Sunday as those who admire Monteith learned of his sudden death. Outside the downtown Vancouver hotel, 16-yearold Helen Slater placed a stuffed moose as well as a note for Monteith. Slater, who is visiting Vancouver from England, said she was shocked to hear the news of Monteith’s death. She called him “a complete goofball” and a “positive influence,” and decided a stuffed moose was a fitting tribute because Monteith

was Canadian, and had been seen before in photos wearing moose antlers. “The note says how he was a part of ‘Glee,’ and how that’s kind of changed my life,” Slater said, tearing up. “Nothing’s going to be the same anymore. It just put me (through) some really tough times, and helped me through depression a lot.” With no obvious cause of death, the BC Coroners Service confirmed Monday it will do further testing on the Canadian actor’s body in order to determine how the 31-year-old died. While the autopsy is

taking place today, the coroners’ service says it may take several days before results are in from the toxicology tests. Vancouver police say they are stepping back from the investigation after ruling out foul play. Sgt. Randy Fincham says police see bad drugs in the city on occasion and officers recently noted two teenagers died of overdoses as a result, but there’s nothing to indicate Monteith’s death was due to illicit drug use. Fellow celebrities and “Glee” cast members took to Twitter to express their

condolences. Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Coach Shannon Beiste, wrote, “I am blessed to have worked with him and love him so much. My heart is with his family and our whole Glee family. I love you all.” Monteith’s co-star and girlfriend Lea Michele, who plays Finn’s girlfriend on-screen, has issued a brief statement, requesting privacy. “We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea’s privacy during this devastating time,” said Michele’s representative Molly Kawachi in a written statement.

AA American Legion

Dbacks poised for post-season By Times Staff The West Kootenay Diamondbacks won five of six this week in American Legion AA play to keep a firm grip on top spot in the Federal Division. The Dbacks crushed North West Christian 21-1 Sunday with Austin Tambellini getting the win to push its record to 16-2, one game up on Colville AA, with the Dbacks enjoying two games in hand. Sean Barta got the start in the second game also getting the victory in a 10-8 win in the second half of the doubleheader. In Saturday’s games, Scott Davidson threw a two-hitter to lead the Dbacks to a 2-0 victory over AA Rogers, but the Spokane team would come back and take the second match 9-8 despite being out-hit by West Kootenay. The Dbacks have gone 9-1 in their past 10 matches, that included a 11-6 and 17-4 drubbings over Rogers Thursday that saw Tanner Johnson smack a grand-slam home run. WKD played its final two games of the season Monday afternoon, needing just one win to secure the division title and a berth into the playoff, however, scores were unavailable at press time.


Saints add rugged blueliner By Times Contributor

The Selkirk College Saints added some grit and determination with the commitment of defenceman David Mead of Conklin, NY to attend Selkirk College and compete for the Saints beginning in the 2013/14 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season. The 20-year old joins the Saints following a long junior hockey career that began in 2008 with the Ontario Hockey League’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. He spent two seasons with the Greyhounds, posting six assists and 68 penalty minutes in 88 regular season games. He went on to spend the 2010/11 and 2011/12 campaigns in the United States Hockey League with the Omaha Lancers and Fargo Force respectively. Mead recently concluded his final junior season with the North American Hockey League’s Wenatchee Wild, who helped to a Western Division

championship and a birth in the league’s Robertson Cup Championship. In 49 games with the Wild, Mead scored three goals and accumulated 10 points and 154 penalty minutes while serving as one of the team’s assistant captains. Overall, the 6-foot1, 220-pound blueliner totaled four goals, 15 assists and 305 penalty minutes over five seasons of junior hockey in the OHL, USHL and NAHL. “David is a big, rugged defenceman who is going to bring a great deal of experience and leadership to our blueline,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “He also adds a physical dimension that we’ve looked to fill during our offseason recruiting. From everything I’ve heard from his previous coach in Wenatchee, David is a high-character individual and a popular teammate.” Mead plans to study business Admin. and Golf Course Management once at Selkirk.

The Trail AM Ford Orioles’ Joey Underwood brings the heat and shows some versatility taking the mound from his regular shortstop position to help Trail to victory over an undermanned Vernon Diamondbacks squad on Sunday. The O’s would go on to sweep the three-game series.

Trail Orioles sweep Diamondbacks By Art Harrison Times Staff

The Trail AM Ford Orioles capped off a sweep of the shorthanded Vernon Diamondbacks with a 13-3 win Sunday to close out their three game series at Butler Park over the weekend. The Dbacks came into the series shorthanded and had to enlist substitutes to fill out their roster hurting their competitiveness against a much stronger Trail squad. “Any time you play Trail you’re always going to be up against it, they’re a really strong defensive and hitting team,” said the Dbacks playing-coach, Eric MacLachlan. “But we had two guys bail on us at the last minute and had to pick up a couple of guys from the campsite. That’s obviously not going to help our chances.” In handing out what could reasonably be called a shellacking to the Vernon team, the Orioles have improved their record to winning seven of their last eight games. Trail dominated the weekend scoring against the Diamondbacks winning 13-3 Sunday, and 10-1 and 18-0 Saturday. In the middle game of the series Trail pitcher Scott Rhynold garnered a nohitter and was two walks away from a perfect game, while striking out six in the victory.

Trail Orioles pitcher Scott Rhynold tossed a no-hitter in the 18-0 drubbing of the Vernon Diamondbacks Saturday. The Dbacks started the game with an error-filled first inning, dropping 13 runs to Trail. The remainder of the game saw no improvement and the game was called after four and half innings offering mercy to the disheartened Dbacks. James Oliver cashed in four runs for the

O’s, going 3-for-3 with two doubles. “The guys have been playing really well,” said Orioles manager, Dave Cahoun. “They’ve been hitting well since the Kelowna tournament and the other guys didn’t seem to have the pitching they usually have.” Orioles playing-coach, Jim Maniago, said that the Vernon team may not have fared well in this outing but admitted that when they are on their game it can be a much closer game. “When they play well anything can happen,” said Maniago. “This time they gave us too many opportunities and we took them.” In Sunday’s 13-3 match, Calvin went 3-for-4 at the plate with a double, a stolen base, and three RBIs, while Maniago knocked in four and was 2-for-3 at the dish. Paulson got the win, going the distance and giving up three runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out seven. The O’s last loss came at the hands of the Thurston County Senators at the Canada Day Baseball Blast tournament, a 2-1 extra-inning loss in the semifinal. The Orioles will get a chance to avenge the loss when they face Thurston County at Butler Park this coming weekend for another three game series with games going Saturday at 5 and 7 p.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m.

Detroit’s Justin Verlander was the AL starter and loser last year. Scherzer (13-1, 3.10 ERA) joins him to become the first pitchers from the same club to start consecutive All-Star games since Arizona’s Randy Johnson (2000-01) and Curt Schilling (2002). Scherzer was 13-0 before losing Saturday to Texas. He had most wins in a perfect start since Clemens won his first 14 decisions in 1986.

Funding renewed

VANCOUVER - Kids and adults who face obstacles to participating in sport programs will benefit from a $2.8-million cash injection to the B.C. Sport Participation Program (BCSPP) from the federal and provincial governments combined. BCSPP has introduced over half a million British Columbians to sport since its inception in 2004 and trained more than 20,000 coaches and sport leaders. The funding renewal, signed today by federal Minister of State (Sport) Bal Gosal and B.C.’s Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Coralee Oakes, enables the program to continue for another three years. Programs are delivered throughout the province. “Working with provincial and territorial governments to advance important priorities for sport, physical activity, and recreation in Canada is something our government is proud to do,” said Gosal. “We want to make sport participation a part of Canadians’ everyday lives. Today’s funding announcement clearly demonstrates that we are committed to working together with all levels of government to achieve this common goal. Sport participation and active living are important elements in keeping our communities and children healthy and active.” The BCSPP provides grants to provincial and multi-sport organizations for programs that help increase participation in sport, particularly for under-represented groups, including Aboriginal, disabled, low-income, and seniors populations. Examples of programs funded in the past include Gymnastics BC’s Kids CanMove, BC Wheelchair Sports’ Bridging the Gap, and Cross Country BC’s Ski S’Kool program. The BCSPP supports the goals of both Sport Canada and the government of British Columbia to enhance sport participation and the capacity to deliver sport programs. Quick Facts: * Sport Canada and the government of British Columbia are each contributing $1,429,995 over three years, for a total funding commitment of $2,859,990. Each government committed over $476,000 per year over three years. * The funding covers the period 2012-2015. * In 2012-13, the government of British Columbia and Sport Canada provided a total of $953,330 for 37 projects involving 60,000 participants in 120 communities. * Since its inception in 2004, the BCSPP has invested close to $8 million in sport participation programming. * Funding for the BCSPP is administered by viaSport. * Sport Canada and the government of British Columbia are each contributing $1,429,995 over three years, for a total funding commitment of $2,859,990. Each government committed over $476,000 per year over three years. * In 2012-13, the government of British Columbia and Sport Canada provided a total of $953,330 for 37 projects involving 60,000 participants in 120 communities.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Welcome Jenny McCarthy as the next co-host to join “The View.” The actress and former Playboy playmate was named Monday to join the panel of the ABC weekday talk show. Barbara Walters, who created “The View” in 1997 and has since served as a co-host, made the widely expected announcement on the air. “We love her because she’s fun, she’s uninhibited and she’s opinionated enough to help us begin the latest chapter in ‘The View’ history,” Walters said. McCarthy arrives at the start of the 17th season on Sept. 9.

McCarthy tabbed as new host for ‘The View’



Sponsors pull out of MONday & Movies concert featuring Chris Brown MONDAY EVENING


THE CANADIAN PRESS HALIFAX - Two sponsors have pulled their support from a summer music festival in Halifax after public outcry over the decision to have controversial American R&B singer Chris Brown headline the event. Halifax-based spa Touch of Radiance announced Monday it was withdrawing its sponsorship of the concert, two days after telecommunications giant Rogers did the same. “It’s an unfortunate situation, what happened,” said Jose Martins, who co-owns the beauty spa with his wife. “We just found that his past and what happened with him does not align well with our values as a company.” Brown, 24, pleaded guilty to assaulting thengirlfriend Rihanna in February 2009. He hit, choked and bit the R&B star during an argument in Los Angeles following a pre-Grammy Award party. He is scheduled to perform at a concert on Aug. 31, but his upcoming visit has already stoked a torrent of criticism on social media and even from the mayor, who told the Halifax Chronicle Herald over the weekend that the idea of someone like Brown performing in the city makes him sick. The promoter behind the concert said he is not surprised to hear there has been such a backlash. But Stephen Tobin, owner of Drop Entertainment Group, said Brown was invited because of his musical talent and popularity, adding that the company does not condone his past behaviour. “When you’re dealing with an artist of the size and calibre of Chris Brown, there’s bound to be conflicting opinions,” Tobin said Monday. “He is as controversial as he is talented, there’s no denying that.” He said there are thousands of people in the Maritimes who want to see the Grammy Awardwinning musician. “I believe it’s a very slippery slope when we start trying to censor or to dictate who can or cannot perform in this province,” said Tobin. He said if people do not support Brown, they can simply choose not to buy a concert ticket.

Find other ways to be close to distant family Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

On one of the four nights, they left me alone while my daughter-in-law went to a concert with her girlfriends and stayed overnight, my grandchildren had sleepovers, and my son went to a bar (he is a hardworking alcoholic). When my granddaughter showed me her 8th grade graduation book, she talked about her loving family and mentioned her grandparents on her mom’s side. (They live close.) She never once mentioned my husband or me. Do I continue to travel all these miles for this type of abuse, or do I go only when I

day during his lectures. I saw a video of one of his classes and think the university should be informed. This is not how our young people should be taught. Should I report him to someone? Who? -Frustrated Alumnus Dear Frustrated: If you think this professor’s teaching “technique” poorly represents the university, by all means say something to the dean of his department or the president of the university. Suggest they look into his videos. But understand that it’s up to the university to determine what action is taken, if any. Dear Annie: I am writing in response to the letter from “Loveless and Discouraged,” who went through a program for sex addiction and was discouraged that his wife still does not trust him. Good for the husband for trying to save his marriage, but I’d like to explain

his wife’s side of things. I was married for 28 years to a sex addict who tried therapy, relapsed many times and eventually gave up. I wonder whether “Loveless” realizes the intense emotional damage done to a wife who has been repeat-

edly lied to and cheated on. She needs more time than he expects to focus on herself and to rebuild intimacy. Has he truly apologized? Has he tried to see this through her eyes? Has he been willing to take tests for STDs to reassure her

that her health is not in danger? What is he doing to make sure this never happens again? -- Been There Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

It’s expensive to travel, so those visits are infrequent. It takes effort to maintain a close relationship, and it sounds as if your son and his wife prefer not to extend themselves, which is sad. You don’t have to travel more often than you can afford, and be sure to invite your son and his family to visit you, as well. Then find other ways to stay in touch with the grandchildren -- Facebook, email, texting, Skype, letters and phone calls. They need to know you better.

Dear Annie: After my bitter divorce, my son decided to live with his father in another state. I have spent thousands of dollars on airplane tickets, hotels, car rentals and restaurants. I have never forgotten my two grandchildren’s birthdays. Here’s the rub: To save money, I have traveled alone and stayed with my son. Recently, I stayed for four days. After traveling 1,000 miles, I spent two hours in a shuttle because my son did not pick me up at the airport as promised. When I arrived at their house, there was nothing to eat. I had to ask my son to make something, as I do not feel comfortable in their kitchen. My grandson gave up his bed for me, and the room was a mess (to say the least). His bathroom sink and tub were clogged, and my daughter-in-law expected me to clean them. I also had to ask for fresh towels.
