100 Mile House and Surrounding Area



By Tom Fletcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark tried to put the pre-election ethnic outreach scandal behind her on July 16, after the NDP raised new questions about an apparent effort to silence a former staff member’s complaints about BC Liberal Party work done by government staff. Clark told reporters that e-mails

from former B.C. Liberal staffer Brian Bonney were “totally inappropriate … and that’s why he no longer works for government.” The e-mails were included in 10,000 pages examined by a team of deputy ministers after the ethnic outreach program was revealed in a leaked memo in March. The plan to use government staff time to organize events in ethnic communities, then collect

names for use in the B.C. Liberal election campaign, resulted in resignations of Clark’s deputy chief of staff and two other government employees, and Richmond Steveston MLA John Yap’s resignation as minister of state for multiculturalism. International Trade Minister Teresa Wat, who took over responsibility for multiculturalism after the May election, repeated for a

second day in question period that the investigation team looked at all documents and took appropriate action. The 10,000-page package includes a heavily censored string of e-mails that identifies Bonney as a participant. The first part appears directed at the unnamed staffer. “We will see if we can help Continued on 3

The driver lost control of this GMC Sonoma pickup when it went off the road while entering a curve and flipped once before coming to rest in the ditch on Highway 97 at 103 Mile about 12:30 p.m. on July 15. The male driver suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to 100 Mile District General Hospital.

Be sodium savvy when shopping and eating at restaurants Our bodies need salt to survive, send nerve impulses and contract and relax our muscles. As a bonus, salt adds flavour and helps preserve foods. However, in our North American food system, we get way too much of a good thing. The average Canadian consumes about 3,400 milligrams of sodium daily. This is more than double the recommended intake of 1,500 milligrams, and it is 50 per cent higher than the upper tolerable limit of 2,400 milligrams (which equals one teaspoon). This high salt intake does not come without consequences. According to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, three in 10 Canadians have high blood pressure caused by too much dietary salt. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and has been identified by the World Health Organization as the leading risk factor for premature death in the world. So where does all this salt come from? Roughly 80 per cent of sodium in the diet comes from processed foods and restaurants. It is important to read nutrition labels because salt can be hidden in less obvious places, such as breakfast cereals and vegetable juices that boast numerous health claims. Some popular breakfast cereals have Continued on 4

Hot July Nights a sizzler for motorized vehicle aficionados

Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

The annual 100 Mile House Hot July Nights Car & Bike Show was an impressive gathering of power and polish as 176 vehicles lined up for the public to admire in Centennial Park on July 14. It was around a 13 per cent increase over 2012 registrations and it has co-ordinators revving their engines on the show’s success. “It was an absolute success, with more cars and spectators than we’ve every had,” says Jim

Williscroft, event spokesperson and president of the 100 Mile Cruzers Car Club. “I’m extremely happy with comments from people from out of town who said they’d never seen a nicer place for a car show.” Even the weather held out until the end of the show when skies eventually opened up with rain. A total of $712.50 in cash donations was collected at the registration table, and given to the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre Society.

find you something else — can you send me your resume? Send it to Brian also,” one e-mail states. The next one states: “Have [former minister of state for multiculturalism] Harry Bloy meet with her and explain how doing anything would damage the premier and the party. Have him say how he will try to find her work and get her back involved. “If need be, offer x dollars per month to do nonpublic work up to the election (developing her database of potential supporters).” Clark said the e-mail was examined in the review, led by her deputy minister John Dyble, and there was no evidence it was ever acted upon. An official in the premier’s office said the woman discussed in the e-mail was a temporary employee who left government employment in September 2012. In the legislature on July 16, NDP critics demanded to know if the woman in the e-mails was offered another job, or if she was interviewed in the investigation.

Province keeping deadly deer disease out of B.C. For detailed information on the requirements for processing out-ofprovince deer moose and elk, visit wldhealth/CWD_pro gram_update_ spring2013.pdf. Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is a progressive, fatal nervous system disease that affects members of the deer family, including white-tailed deer, mule deer, moose and elk. The disease is caused by an abnormal protein

and can spread when a healthy animal comes into contact with an infected animal, infected tissue or even soil contaminated by the protein. The disease was first identified in Canada in 1996, and despite attempts to manage it, CWD continues to spread in Saskatchewan and Alberta. British Columbia has been working since 2001 to keep CWD out of B.C., and in 2010, it passed a regulation to restrict the

Salt sources surprise unsuspecting

up to 350 milligrams of sodium per serving (and most people eat more than one serving) and vegetable juices can have close to 500 milligrams of sodium per cup. Other sources that often surprise the unsuspecting consumer include canned vegetables, cheeses, smoked salmon, lunch meats, baked beans, store-bought bran muffins, canned soups and tomato sauces. More obvious sources of sodium are found in the fast food items. A burger and fries meal could easily tally up 1,500 milligrams of sodium. Yet even the health-conscious, fastfood eater can be hard pressed to find low salt

options. Some fast food restaurant salads pack in 1,200 milligrams or more and a six inch sub might contain 1,200-1,800 milligrams of sodium – that’s almost double in a foot long! Here are a few strategies to reduce your salt intake. • When eating out, order dressings on the side and watch out for foods described as pickled, marinated, smoked, barbequed, teriyaki, soy sauce, broth, miso, gravy, bacon and, of course, salted. • Look for products that contain less than 200 milligrams of sodium per serving. • Be aware of serving sizes and think about how many servings you

usually eat. What may seem like only a small amount of sodium can add up fast as you double or triple the servings. • Thoroughly rinse canned foods. • And of course, the best way to avoid a high salt diet is to shop the perimeter of the grocery store, choose whole

foods and cook from scratch as much as possible. For more information on sodium, visit the Healthy Families BC website at www. sodium-sense. Simone Jennings is a registered dietitian with Interior Health.

Community news your way.

transport of high risk tissues of hunted animals into B.C. The province continues to monitor for the disease, and so far, no infected animals have been found in B.C. CWD is related to bovine spongiform encephalopathy, which causes mad cow disease. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) does not believe CWD can be passed from deer to humans. As a precaution, WHO warns people not to eat the meat from infected deer. For more information on CWD visit www.env. cwd.html.

Coffee Saloon on July 21st. A prolific author of more than 20 books, Wright will be giving a multimedia presentation on Barkerville, as well as reading from his book, from 5:30 p.m. onward. “Richard Wright, recipient of the 2012 Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association’s President’s Award for Lifetime Achievement, literally wrote the book on Barkerville,” says Douglas. “It is a real treat to have him presenting his latest work over the Sports Day weekend, and we encourage anyone with a

10 TIPS TO A GREAT SALE! 1. Place your advertisement for 2 weeks in our classified section. 2. Call friends and neighbours to see if they’d like to do a sale together. The bigger the selection, the more customers you’ll have. 3. Give yourself a couple of days to get organized. 4. Gather boxes, newspapers, and bags to use during the sale to package purchases. 5. Set your dates and times. The first and middle of the month are paydays for many people. 6. Take the time to clean up your items… products will sell better when they look “taken care of.” 7. Make the most of your display by setting up in a visible area such as the front yard, the driveway or near the curb. Don’t tuck yourself and your merchandise in a dark garage. 8. Label everything for sale with tape. Price it so you might consider buying it for yourself. 9. Before the sale, go to the bank. Get plenty of small bills and change to have on-hand. Keep a calculator handy for quick adding. 10. Be an entrepreneur. Make extra money by selling canned sodas, lemonade, etc., to shoppers. If you have kids, have them do this!

Canadian Cancer Society challenges British Columbians to reduce smoking rates

The Canadian Cancer Society BC & Yukon has called on all British Columbians to bring the current smoking rate down from 14 to nine per cent by 2018 in order to reduce tobacco-related deaths. While B.C. continues to lead the country with its low tobacco use rates, reduction of rates has plateaued and tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of preventable deaths and cancer deaths in B.C. and Canada. June 17 marked 50 years since Canada’s Minister of National Health and Welfare, Judy LaMarsh, told in the House of Commons “smoking is a contributory cause of lung cancer….” LaMarsh’s statement came seven months before the much more well-known United States Surgeon General’s

report stating that smoking causes lung cancer. With the new B.C. Liberal government in place, the society is advocating that it take a firmer stance on tobacco control in its new term. To help bring the provincial smoking rate down to nine per cent, the society is calling for: • An increase in tobacco product taxes from the Oct. 1 planned $44.60 to $50 per carton (200 cigarettes). • Regulations that would make outdoor patios of bars and restaurants, as well as beaches, parks and playgrounds, smoke-free. • A reduction in the number of places, including pharmacies, where tobacco is sold, making it less convenient

to purchase tobacco products. • A ban on all flavoured tobacco products not covered by federal legislation, including many types of little cigars, water pipe tobacco, and smokeless tobacco, as well as menthol cigarettes, all of which have a broader appeal to a younger demographic. • Sustained, wellfunded government prevention and cessation programs to prevent people from starting to

smoke and support them when they wish to quit. As leaders in the tobacco crusade, the society is calling on government and partners to come together to reduce the 14 per cent rate that has been our plateau since 2007. The Canadian Cancer Society has been a leader in advocating for tobacco control measures and intends to sustain this effort until more change occurs.
