▼ TRUDEAU MANIA REVIVAL

Kelowna gathers to meet Liberal leader Hundreds of Kelowna residents, Liberal supporters and curious passersby made their way to Kerry Park Tuesday morning to listen to the man who has been tasked with reviving the Liberal Party of Canada. Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau was in town as part of a multi-day B.C. tour, which began Sunday in Cranbrook.

He spent the majority of his time in Kelowna shaking hands, answering individuals’ questions and posing for photos with his fans. “A lot of people say this is about Justin and the hair—it’s not about that,” Trudeau told the crowd. “This is about people feeling that, for once, there might be room for Canadians in Canadian politics.” Opting not to use a microphone, Trudeau lifted his voice to encourage the

crowd to raise their expectations of the federal government. Daniel Germain, who lives in Montreal but considers Kelowna his second home, was one of hundreds in attendance Tuesday. “I believe Canadians are looking for a breath of fresh air—that’s what Justin is bringing,” said Germain. Remi Ouellette wasn’t willing to label himself a Liberal supporter; however, he spoke positively about Trudeau.

“I’ve got a lot of praise for the man,” said Ouellette, adding he wouldn’t be surprised if Trudeau eventually became prime minister. “He’s going to make it, as far as I’m concerned. His name’s Trudeau, and we all knew his dad, but I think he could do it on his own.” Trudeau touched on several issues Tuesday, including his opinion that mari-

The man to become the next Kelowna RCMP superintendent has one less thing to answer for when he meets with members of the media for the first time today to discuss national crime statistics. A summer of difficult, unsolved cases and a notorious run in the headlines—Const. Geoff Mantler’s assault on a man with a brain injury, the previous superintendent’s drug-dealing daughter and Const. Steve Conlon’s assault on a pregnant woman to name the obvious—have cast a pall over the department RCMP Insp. Nick Romanchuk will lead. As of Tuesday, however, at least one crime can be removed from the string of queries in his department’s lap. The B.C. Coroners Service has revealed a man found dead in Mill Creek on July 14 was not murdered by his homeless peers as bystanders suggested. “There’s no indication

▼ WEST KELOWNA

Council to consider hiring lifeguards as part of the CNR Wharf upgrade CNR WHARF DRAFT CONCEPT PLAN

Wade Paterson

Barry Gerding

STAFF REPORTER

A proposed water zipline, diving platform and spring board are some of the phase one CNR Wharf Park upgrade features that have excited West Kelowna residents and even some district councillors. But additional safety concerns and the possible need for lifeguards on site have a few council members far less thrilled. West Kelowna council waded through some of the phase one key decision points Tuesday evening. The first stage of improvements, which is expected to cost $543,000, will potentially include a boardwalk, a shaded seating area, two new lift towers, new diving platforms, a floating dock with a slide, a diving board and a zipline. “I’m a little troubled with this,” said Coun. Bryden Winsby. “I’m struck by the fact we seem to be solving one safety issue, but perhaps introducing some others.” A report presented to council Tuesday evening states the best practices and recommendations from the Lifesaving Society of B.C. suggest that any diving platform over

EDITOR

Bryden Winsby three metres should only be open for use when a lifeguard is on duty. “Considering lifeguards is acknowledging there’s a risk—there’s danger there,” Winsby noted. He added there would be a significant cost associated with hiring lifeguards every year, as well as potential liability issues. District staff will bring a report back to council regarding options and costs associated with providing lifeguards on Aug. 27. Although council debated the lifeguarding and safety aspects, many councillors and members of the public indicated they are pleased with the detailed design of phase one. According to director of development services, Nancy Henderson, about 500 West Ke-

lowna residents have commented on the CNR Wharf Park Plan to date. Of the 56 surveys completed, 100 per cent of respondents were in support of the proposed design. “I like the design— this is what our youth have been asking for: Some recreational activities they can have fun with,” said

Coun. Gord Milsom. “I might even try that zipline myself.” Coun. David Knowles also complimented district staff on the design. “This is what the kids want; this will put us on the map,” said Knowles. The second phase of improvements is expected to cost $1.37 million and will include an entry plaza

with signage, seating, a refreshment kiosk and bike parking, formalized planting areas and a boardwalk connection. Demolition and construction on the first phase of the new wharf could begin as early as October. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

▼ OYAMA LAKE ROAD

Local teen killed in Lake Country accident A single vehicle accident on Monday along Oyama Lake Road in Lake Country has left one person dead and another in hospital. It’s the second fatal crash in less than a week on that same road after an ATV left the road and crashed down an embank-

ment killing two people last Friday. Preliminary reports indicate that Lake Country RCMP received a call around 5 p.m. Monday that a pickup truck had slid down an embankment in the 5700 block of Oyama Lake Road. A 17-year-old male

from Lake Country pronounced dead at the scene has been identified by the regional coroner as Samuel Marienus Waldron, 17, of Winfield. The passenger, in the truck, a 17-year-old female from Germany, was taken to Kelowna General Hospital in critical con-

dition, and subsequently transferred to a Vancouver hospital for further treatment. Her name has not yet been released. Police say the male was driving a Chevy pickup truck and apparently lost control when turning on an Oyama Lake Road switchback, skid-

ding around a corner before plunging over an embankment. Both the driver and passenger were ejected from the vehicle. The Central Okanagan Traffic Services continue to assist the BC Coroner’s Service with the investigation.

FortisBC has been given the go-ahead to proceed with the installation of advanced meters for its electricity customers in southern B.C., including Kelowna and Lake Country. That approval was granted in a 200-page decision released Tuesday by the B.C. Utilities Commission. But when Fortis customers will begin seeing advanced meters, similar to the controversial smart meters championed by BC Hydro, is still being worked out. “The BCUC’s decision is lengthy and we have a responsibility to our customers to review it before making a commitment to moving forward with the project,” said a news release issued by FortisBC today. “We believe advanced meters are an accurate, reliable and safe way to deliver energy…Our focus is to deliver energy safely and reliably at the lowest reasonable cost.” In an interview with the Capital News, Neal Pobran, manager of corporate communications for FortisBC, said the delay isn’t because there were any surprises in the BCUC ruling. “It’s been a long process to go through on this as we first made the application for advanced meters last July,” Pobran said. “That included a two week hearing in Kelowna where the public and stakeholders were given a chance to have their input on the final decision.” He said the next step is to come out with an installation process for the some 130,000 electricity customers that will likely start to roll out by the end of August. While Hydro’s smart meter program has encountered considerable opposition, largely based around health concerns raised by those opposed to the smart meters, Pobran says FortisBC’s experience in this process has been different. “It has been different from the start in that we have followed a regulatory process to get to this point, whereas BC Hydro was mandated by provincial legislation to do it,” Pobran said. “And this is for our electricity customers only from Winfield extending down the Okanagan Valley through Kelowna and through the southern region to Creston. If you are on natural gas, this won’t affect you.” Pobran said customers will have an option to not have the advanced meters installed, but he hopes that most electricity users will see the benefits of the program, since there will be added costs to opt out. With BC Hydro, which serves West Kelowna and Peachland, people refusing smart meters can now opt out from standard smart meter installation, but they will pay to do so. Hydro now has three options for those who have refused smart meter installation, Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett announced on Monday. They can accept a standard smart meter; accept a digital meter with the radio turned off, which would mean a one-time cost estimated at $100 for installation, plus a fee of about $20 per month to cover the cost of reading the meter; or keep their analog meter and pay a monthly fee—as yet unannounced—which would cover the cost of reading the meter, plus the cost of creating a separate system to record consumption for billing.

Gas prices change driving habits

T

he soaring price of gasoline is on the minds of many people this sum-

mer. There is some evidence, mostly anecdotal, that it is starting to change people’s habits. There are whispers that Vancouver Island is hungry for tourists this summer. While gas prices are just one factor — the main one being the huge expense of taking the ferry — they can’t be dismissed. Additionally, the long lines going to and from the U.S. are

at least partially driven by gas prices. Even though gas prices there have also risen steeply, gas remains cheaper. This is largely because there is far less tax on gas in Washington state. Unfortunately, the cheaper gas price leads to more Canadians doing other shopping in the U.S., and killing two birds with one stone. They are also hurting local businesses and reducing local tax revenue. The high levels of taxation on gasoline are the prime reason that gas is often $1.35 to up to

$1.50 per in many parts of B.C. TransLink and the provincial and federal governments aren’t about to lower gas taxes, even by half cent a litre. They are addicted to the revenue. That’s why we will never see the carbon tax go away. Even if it was scientifically proven that the earth was cooling, that tax is staying. And when a politician judges that he or she can get away with it, it will be boosted. World oil prices have risen, and that has something to do with our gas prices. But accord-

ing to experts, it seems they have more to do with refinery shutdowns, wholesale prices and even the lack of pipeline capacity. One thing is for sure. Most people have no more money in their pockets than they did last summer. The price of gas is as much as 20 cents a litre more than it was a year ago, and that means many people are driving much less than usual. But from a protection of the environment standpoint, maybe that is not such a bad thing.

Quality of life impacted by working wage limitations

T

he third annual Central Okanagan Living Wage Report was released this week, and this report’s findings seem to get bleaker every year. Perhaps it’s pointless to keep gathering these statistics because it only serves to highlight the growing disenfranchisement between the haves and have nots in Kelowna. As with the previous two versions of this report, the highlighted fact again is the cost of living for a four-person family, a couple with two kids, has gone up. The 2013 living wage calculation for the Regional District of the Central Okanagan is up an average of 4.9 per cent over the previous year’s fig-

ure, which was an hourly wage of $17.17. To keep a two parent, two child household out of extreme poverty, each adult must be employed fulltime and earn at least $18.01/hour in order to meet the family’s basic needs. “While most categories used for the living wage calculation increased slightly, there was a notable jump in the costs associated with child care. This expense rose approximately 8.5 per cent or $89 per month over 2012,” said Christene Walsh, the regional district’s social development program

coordinator. Also adding to the increased fiscal challenge is a 4.5 per cent rise in the cost of transportation, to just over $492 a month in 2013. So what costs facBarry Gerding tor into this living wage calculation? Walsh says the living wage calculation includes expenses such as food, rent, transportation, child care, education costs, taxes, tax credits and available government subsidies. Other things like debt repayment, cable or Internet monthly costs, caring for a relative, cigarettes and saving

EDITOR’S NOTE

for a home down payment don’t figure into the calculation. Walsh said with child poverty rates in B.C. tied for the worst in Canada with Manitoba, it’s important to carry out the living wage calculation to encourage Central Okanagan communities to explore innovative ways to “help families meet their basic needs while offering opportunities to get ahead.” The reality for those of us living in the Central Okanagan is we reside in a vacation paradise, and as such it attracts many wealthy people here looking to retire or purchase a parttime home, but that is not the Okanagan lifestyle that the average working people see.

The reality is there are not many jobs here, at least in the private sector, that pay 18 bucks an hour. More and more people are leaving town to work in northern B.C. or Alberta, where high paying trades and oil patch jobs are looking to be filled. “Talking about the idea of the living wage also gives us the opportunity to highlight some of our valuable local resources that assist day in and day out, throughout the community,” Walsh noted. “It’s important for us to support those agencies…that come together to help as many people as possible enjoy the best quality of life.” Barry Gerding is the managing editor of the Kelowna Capital News. bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

▼ MP’S REPORT

Albas’ view of federal ministers myopic To the editor: In his latest MP Report, (Who Heads Up a Federal Ministry Matters To Us All, July 18 Capital News), Mr. Albas relates how two federal ministers magnanimously listened to and acted on concerns he submitted. Average voters, in their innocence, might have thought that this is exactly what ministers are appointed to do. As it became public, however, in the latest cabinet shuffle, federal ministers are now provided with a “list of enemies.” One can imagine, based on previous de-

scriptions by ministers, Canadians who are: • Concerned about the environment as “foreign-paid eco-terrorists’ • Opposed to have their electronic communications monitored without a court order as “being on the side of the child pornographers” • Opposed to the political takeover of the CBC by “cultural elites” • Anyone who is not a member of the CPC; will end up on such a list.

Pie-in-the-sky dreams for running Kelowna problems caused by inferior workmanship?

gestions to create a state of the art city park. Sharon Shepherd suggest paths and walkways be accessible, safe and clean, encourage adults to participate in activities, improved lighting and create a social place. (Plan for City Park: No More Pavement, July 18 Capital News.) All these things sound wonderful, however, who will pay for this beautification? Taxes collected for the city should be used to manage city business, not to create a pie-in-the-sky, grandiose fairyland. Would it be possible to form a committee where volunteers produce a money-making summer activity, maybe a family picnic with entertainment,

games for seniors, children and adults, a simple boat race, etc. These activities create happy family memories. Of course, there would have to be a charge to keep the park clean, accessible, safe and allow for improvements over the years. Our attitude for immediate gratification does not work unless a loan with a high interest rate would stimulate your palate better. Let’s work together to create a beautiful city, free of crime, a place where every adult, senior and child can work, play and be happy. What a wonderful dream. Dianne McMillan, Kelowna

project. The mayor’s suggestion that we build a stateof-the-art washroom that would cost over $800,000 is ludicrous. Yes, we want patrons safe, and prevent nefarious individuals from performing illegal, destructive behaviour, but at what cost? I would think we can find a much more cost efficient solution. How did the project for a new health centre forget to include parking? Another subject is the building of the seniors’ centre. The centre now requires costly repairs. Already? How can it be that a relatively new building is crumbling before our eyes? Why is it our responsibility to fix the

Thanks Westside firefighters The professional manner in which they dealt with the fire as well as keeping the residents informed should be commended. They were on site all through the night to monitor the situation as well as making frequent trips to monitor the situation for the following two days. I had the opportunity to speak with many of the

firefighters, day and night, and was impressed with their ability to deal with the fire as well as put my mind at ease. Again, I would like to express my profound thanks and respect for the Westside Fire department. Susan Chernovsky Wittenberg, West Kelowna

To the editor: I would like to thank the men and women of the Westside Fire department for the prompt and efficient manner in which they dealt with the fire in Kalamoir Park on Saturday night (July 20).   Without their expertise, this fire had the potential to inflict huge property damage as well as destroy the park.

To the editor: The residents living in the city of Kelowna need to get involved in the management of this beautiful area. Important, significant decisions need to be made on a daily basis. I propose that our mayor and city council, although they do the best they can, encourage our assistance and input. I suggest we pass a bill limiting the amount of a proposed expenditure before a decision on its merits are thoroughly investigated.

anyone,” said Diane Baldwin, NWRA president. While the item wasn’t specifically on the agenda, Edgson says it was brought up under a section known as directors’ items. “Items can come forward and action can be taken right there,” he said. RDCO will apply to B.C. Parks for a land swap so farming can take place and generate funds for the Friends of Fintry Park Society, which is responsible for Fintry Provincial Park’s heritage manor and barn. RDCO has offered to swap 129.5 hectares

of land above Westside Road, which is part of the park but is owned by the regional district, for a lowland field. The field is part of the park  but not used by B.C. Parks. “The low field area is quite small. Would this be a 129.5-hectare trade for say 10 or 20 hectares?” said Baldwin. “This 129.5 hectare property, presumed to  be the Fintry protected area, needs to remain under the stewardship of RDCO for its intended purpose.” Baldwin also questions the financial viability of operating a farm, the possible impact on

the water supply the inconvenience for residents if the farm includes livestock. “People come to Fintry to boat, swim, hike and yes to take in the history,” she said. Edgson says RDCO is simply investigating whether a land swap is possible, and if it does occur, there will be a lengthy process before agriculture was  “We’d have to meet ministry policies and neighbours’ concerns. It’s way to premature because we have to see first if we can do the  land swap,” he said.

Tips on how to keep food-borne illnesses off your summer menu

Park, beach and road closures resulting from Centre of Gravity

Kevin Touchet CONTRIBUTOR

Keep food-borne illness off your summer menu It’s the time of year when many of us enjoy cooking outdoors—in parks, campgrounds and back yards. This pleasurable summer pastime of casual dining also provides ideal conditions for outbreaks of food-borne illness. Food-borne illness peaks during the months of May through September because of barbecuing and outdoor eating. E. coli, salmonella and campylobacter are examples of some of the many bacteria related to handling raw meats and other perishable food items.

That’s why it’s vital to be sure items are refrigerated, well cooked and handled with care. Outdoor chefs should keep food safety in mind as they are preparing summer feasts. These four words can help you reduce the risk:

CLEAN

Wash your hands with soap and warm water before and after handling food. Wash all dishes, cutting boards and counters with hot soapy water.

SEPARATE

Keep raw foods away from cooked foods to avoid cross-contamination. Store raw meat at the bottom of the fridge or cooler to prevent juices from dripping onto other

N T GO

foods. Always use a clean plate when taking cooked meat off the barbecue.

COOK

Properly cooking food will kill harmful bacteria. Cook all meat to the appropriate internal temperature—see Health Canada’s Safe Internal Cooking Temperatures chart http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/eating-nutrition/safety-salubrite/ cook-temperatures-cuisson-eng.php) for more details. Use a digital food thermometer to measure the inside temperature of cooked meats. Once cooked, keep hot foods at 60ºC or hotter until ready to serve.

the fridge, microwave, or under cold running water—never at room temperature. Do not let cooked food sit out at room temperature or in the sun for more than two hours. Cool any leftovers right away. Finally, keep cold foods at 4 C or lower. For more tips, go to Interior Health’s website for the Life Begins At 40 Degrees brochure or Health Canada’s Summer Food Safety Tips ( www. healthycanadians.gc.ca/ eating-nutrition/safety-salubrite/summer-safety-salubrite-ete-eng.php).  Kevin Touchet is the manager of environmental health with Interior Health.

Public access to Kelowna’s City Park will be restricted during the B.C. Day long weekend from Friday, Aug. 2, through Sunday, Aug. 4 for Center of Gravity. The public washrooms, water park, skateboard park, tennis courts and a portion of Hot Sands Beach will remain open and accessible to the public. Concerts will end nightly at 11 p.m. Additional closures and restrictions will be in place to accommodate the event: Beach volleyball courts, basketball court, sports field and a portion of Hot Sands Beach at City Park: • Full closure from July 31 to Aug. 5 City Park lakefront promenade (south end): • Walkway within the event site will be closed to the public from July 31 to Aug. 5. Pedestrians are asked to detour around the event using the walkway which runs from the park tunnel, along the south end of the park to Abbott Street. City Park parking lot: • Partial closure from July 29 to 31

and on Aug. 6 • Full closure from Aug. 1 to 5 • Alternate parking available at the Chapman Parkade on Lawrence Avenue Abbott Street on-street parking between Bernard Avenue and Leon Avenue • Restricted parking on the west side of Abbott Street from Aug. 2-4 to accommodate tour and shuttle bus service for the event. • Abbott Street between Bernard Avenue and Leon Avenue, and Bernard Avenue between Abbott Street and Water Street • Nightly road closure from Aug. 2-4 from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. to accommodate tickets holders exiting City Park. RCMP will be on site to manage traffic flow. The City of Kelowna, along with event organizers, will have staff scheduled to keep City Park and downtown clean throughout the long weekend. Help keep our community clean by depositing waste and recycling in the nearest provided receptacle. Event information:centerofgravity. ca .

who was transitioning relationships and had only just started to work outside the home, according to her landlord—threatens to slip from the public agenda. A severe beating and sexual assault case that sent a 22-year-old woman to hospital after she was attacked by an unknown man on a trail off the Mission Creek Greenway sits in roughly the same spot. Police have yet to say whether she was, in fact, raped or indicate whether there are tips coming in on the case. Kelowna has traditionally struggled with a high crime severity index; although, the city did appear to be improving on the rating scale when the figures were released at this time last year. The city was ranked fifth nationwide by Statistics Canada with a crime severity index rating of 97.4 in 2011, which was a 14 per cent improvement from 2010. Ranking No. 1 on the list was Regina. The national average is 77. On June 12, the announcement was made that Romanchuk was to be top cop at the Kelowna RCMP detachment. However, it has never been stated when he actually took over the job and when he will be promoted to superinendent.

he was stabbed, shot or bludgeoned to death,” said coroner Barb McLintock. She noted investigators have thus decided foul play was not the issue. Kristoffe James Gunnarson, 55, was found in the creek in Mary Ann Collinson Memorial Park, but the coroner does not know how he died or whether it was a drowning. When asked if a toxicology was done, she answered no, before saying her office would not piecemeal out information. The Capital News has been told Gunnarson

Nick Romanchuk has family in the area and that he is not homeless, as those who witnessed a passersby discovering the body have said. But little to no information on the case has been released by Kelowna RCMP. Since January, the po-

lice have cancelled the majority of their regularly scheduled Monday briefings with media and have released very little information on the major crimes that do make it out into the public purview. It is still unclear, for example, how 27-year-old Theresa Ashley Neville, the only person murdered in Kelowna this year, was killed. Residents of the area have no idea how she died, whether she knew her killer or even whether the general public faces any danger from a killer on the loose. With little to no storyline to work from, the young mother of two—a once teenaged mother

Mountain bike jump course dream realized Spurred by the vision of mountain bike icon Steve Romaniuk, the Center of Gravity Festival is constructing the biggest course in the festival’s sixyear history. BigSteelBox Kelowna store nanager Michael Wilson this week unveiled Center of Gravity’s detailed design for the eight-metre high, three-level ramp that will be constructed from BigSteelBox’s ocean shipping containers. “This is the first time we’ve combined motocross and mountain biking at Centre of Gravity and I’m sure the crowd will be awed as they witness simultaneous jumping by both riders intersecting in the same air space,” said course build-

mountain biking. “Steve is the brainchild and I’m the construction guy who brings his concept to reality,” said White. “I have to come up with how to build it and BigSteelBox adds to the integrity of the course. It’s a robust series of building blocks.” Building Center of Gravity’s biggest course is not a small production. Construction begins three-days before the festival’s start with cranes lowering each BigSteelBox into place. The boxes—equating to 40 tonnes of steel—are combined with 30 truckloads of dirt and enough decking to construct a large home. The Dirt Zone extends more than 90 metres across the parking lot and is more than 20 metres wide. The Center of Gravity runs Aug. 2 to 4 in Kelowna’s City Park. The biggest adrenaline-pumping festival to hit the Okanagan combines some of the best names in electronic music and hip-hop with over 150 athletes competing in eight different sports including beach volleyball, basketball, freestyle mountain biking, wakeboarding, wakeskating, FMX, skateboarding and BMX. Romaniuk and 10 world-class riders will tear up the freestyle mountain biking course. Garrett Robertson and Colin Van Andel, winners of the 2012 Best Line and Best Trick, return in 2013. Additionally, Reagan Sieg and his crew, Jeff Fehr and Kris Foster, will host the highflying FMX shows. This is the fourth year BigSteelBox has sponsored Center of Gravity. From the Dirt Zone to the judges’ platforms, 20 boxes will be used on the site. BigSteelBox, Canada’s fasted growing moving and storage company, is headquartered in Kelowna.

JUSTIN Trudeau addresses the crowd (left photo) on a stage set up Tuesday morning at Kerry Park in Kelowna. Among those showing up (lower photo) to hear what Trudeau had to say was a political adversary, Conservative MP for the Kelowna-Lake Country riding, Ron Cannan. WADE PATERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

▼ TRUDEAU MANIA REVIVED

Liberal leader comes to Okanagan Trudeau from 1A juana should be legalized. “The current model isn’t working,” said Trudeau. “We need a government that’s going to be able to actually listen to the facts and do the right thing, not just pander to fears and try to win votes on ideologies.” He noted his current B.C. tour isn’t about convincing people to vote Liberal; rather, “getting them to think a little bit differently about politics, with a little more openness and a little more hope.” Although the Kelowna audience included all ages, Trudeau has been praised for his ability to connect with youth. He said he credits that to “making space” for young people in his campaign. “I understand we have a generation of young people who are more involved, more engaged, more aware of what’s going on in the world around them than ever before.”

On Monday, Trudeau was expected to hike to Kokanee Lake, the site where his younger brother, Michel, drowned in 1998. With five drownings throughout the province over the past weekend, Trudeau said increased awareness and investments in search and rescue should be made to help keep people safer. “One of the most basic responsibilities of a government is to do anything it can to keep people safe.” Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan was on hand for Trudeau’s visit Tuesday. He said he agreed with several things the Liberal leader had to say. “I believe in working together, as Justin advo-

er future for not only our children, but our grandchildren (as well).” Kelowna-Lake Country voters heavily favoured the Conservative candidate in the 2011 general election; Cannan earned about 57 per cent of the vote. But Trudeau said those numbers don’t phase him. “There are areas across the country—now that we’re down to (34) seats—that are not Liberal right now. “I’m just trying to get out and meet as many people as possible right across the country and I’ve been really touched by the extraordinary response.” wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

TOURISM PLANNING AWARD…Thompson Okanagan

Tourism received the Silver Award from the Planning Institute of British Columbia (PICB) for Excellence in Policy Planning (small town and rural areas) for the region’s recently launched 10-year strategy: Embracing Our Potential.  The award category seeks to honour the development and application of leading-edge planning policy designed to enhance the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of communities.  Accepting the award are Glenn Mandziuk, CEO of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, joined by Jennifer Houiellebecq, a tourism industry development specialist, and Joan Chess-Woollacott, past president of the planning institute. This year PIBC co-hosted the national planning conference with the Canadian Institute of Planners. “Receiving this accolade is a real accomplishment and honour for the regional tourism industry—this award was the only award to be directed to tourism and we are proud of the recognition that has been given to the strategy as a framework for tourism and economic growth in our region,” Mandzuik said.

Hotel helping guests plug in and check in When the Best Western Plus Kelowna Hotel & Suites installed its first electric car charging station last summer, staff were keen to see how much the stall would get used. As they watched electric cars leave and others pulling in, the hotel quickly realized one plug-in wasn’t enough. “We thought they might take longer to catch on,” said Brenda Rayburn, Best Western Kelowna director of sales and marketing. Back in July 2012, the Best Western became the first Kelowna business to install an electric vehicle charging station. “But we’re pleasant-

ly surprised at the usage they’re getting, and since we wanted to be pro-

active, we just installed our third charging station.” Complementary to all hotel guests, each of the three 90 volt charging stations can take an electric car from ‘empty’ to ready in less than two hours. The hotel wanted to install charging stations as the next step in the hotel’s sustainability plan, and to accommodate the growing numbers of electric vehicle owners in B.C. According to BC Hydro, by 2022 the province will have 100,000 electric vehicles—including hybrids—on the road. “Our EV charging stations are one of the reasons why people looking for Kelowna hotels are

choosing to stay with us,” said Kelowna Best Western chief executive officer and partner Greg Salloum. “We really care about environmental sustainability, so we’re always looking for ways to help reduce our carbon footprint and help guests feel good about being kind to the earth while they travel.” Over the past decade, the Best Western has been recognized several times as one of the greenest’ Kelowna hotels. With environmentally friendly initiatives ranging from a solar hybrid water system to a lawn raked with Nature’s Gold, the hotel often reduces its annual carbon footprint by 300 per cent.

NEWS ▼ MENTAL HEALTH

Alcohol offers no self-medication relief for health issues W ‘‘ hen people come to see me for the first time to discuss mental health issues they’ve been struggling with, it is usually after several years of symptoms that are now getting worse and harder to simply cope with on their own. One of the most common coping strategies I hear about for many mental health issues—particularly anxiety and mood symptoms—is alcohol. People start out thinking a drink or two will relax them or ‘take the edge off.’ They think it will take away nerves, help them sleep or elevate their mood. Unfortunately, this is not the case. In the vast majority of cases, the use of alcohol as a self-medicating strategy is not effective. In the rare case that it seems to help temporarily, it is just that—a temporary bandage that may provide a few hours of relief, but little more. More unfortunate than its lack of effectiveness at treating psychological symptoms, is

environmental approvals and waterfront licenses from the province.  Once the last of these epermissions was received gin late February, staff began laying out the cri,teria required for designying and building the structure.  Regional parks services also gave its approval to locate the boathouse in a section of the community park. Burton Marine and Pile Driving Incorporated has been selected as the contractor following a Request for Proposal process conducted in accordance with the regional district purchasing policy.  The contract includes a full two year warranty on all materials and work performed in construction of the boathouse. Work is scheduled to begin on construction in early September with substantial completion expected by the first week of October.

Paul Latimer the increased risk of alcohol dependence that comes from using it as a self-medicating strategy. A new study from scientists at Johns Hopkins University found that those who self-medicate mood symptoms with alcohol are three times more likely to develop alcohol dependency than those who do not self-medicate with alcohol. Data came from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions. This was conducted by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and con-

sisted of interviews with approximately 43,000 Americans. More than 4,000 of these were found to have mood symptoms but not alcohol dependence and these were asked whether they used alcohol to self-medicate their mood symptoms. Using the results of the second survey, researchers evaluated whether subjects who self-medicated with alcohol were more likely to develop dependence than those who had not used it to self-medicate mood symptoms. Those who had used alcohol to self-medicate were three times more likely to develop dependence than those who had not. Researchers also wanted to know if those who both self-medicated and became dependent on alcohol were more likely to have persistent al-

cohol dependence. This

was true. Those who had self-medicated were three times more likely to remain alcohol dependent as those who had not self-medicated. Interestingly, this link held even for those who did get treatment for their mood disorder. It also held for those who didn’t meet the criteria for a full blown psychiatric condition— but who just had some mood symptoms and

self-medicated. This simply reinforces the truth that it is dangerous to use alcohol to help us feel better. When a low mood or anxious feelings persist and are not related to specific life events, you should consider that you may be experiencing psychiatric symptoms. A few things you can do to try to help yourself are to keep a regular sleep/wake cycle, assess whether there are any

stressful things you can limit from your life and be sure to get regular exercise. Avoiding substances like caffeine and alcohol are also recommended. If your symptoms persist, speak with your doctor. Help is available. Paul Latimer is a psychiatrist and president of Okanagan Clinical Trials. 250-862-8141 dr@okanaganclinicaltrials.com

▼ NAPA VALLEY RUN

More relaxed running for Elmore, with prizes by the litre Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

MICHAEL COATS/CONTRIBUTOR

KELOWNA’S Malindi Elmore topped all women runners last weekend at the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon.

Malindi Elmore’s first trip to the Napa Valley could be classified as a pleasant experience, to say the least. While absorbing the beauty of the northern California region, the 33-year-old Kelowna runner also managed to win the 10th edition of the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon on Sunday afternoon. Elmore, who will be helping out with a similar race back in her hometown in September, was the first woman to finish the 13.1-mile (21.2 km) run in one hour 18 minutes 50 seconds. The race, which attracted 3,400 runners from 50 states and 11 countries, has become a popular destination event which carries with it a fes-

tive atmosphere and promotes the local wine industry. “It was really a beautiful race,” said Elmore. “Running through wineries and the countryside around them was amazing. It was a great experience, everything from the wine to the music to the medal presentations, it was all very impressive.” And Elmore’s win came with a rather large prize. “It was a three-litre bottle of wine, the biggest I’ve ever seen,” Elmore said with a laugh. “I

wasn’t able to have wine there, but I have plenty for later.” Elmore accepted an invitation to run in the race, which also provided her a chance to observe the staging and operations of the event. Elmore will be assisting the organizing committee with the inaugural Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon on Sept. 7. “I’m just going to help out where I can, help to connect the organizers with the right people,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to the Kelowna event.” While Elmore is still competitive by most people’s standards, the former Olympian is running these days more for enjoyment than the lure of winning. “I like to be active, but to be at a high competitive level, it takes a lot of

energy and you have to be intensely focused,” she said. “When there’s a start gun, I still go out and compete hard, but this way I can really appreciate running more and be a little more relaxed about it.” In addition to competing at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athans, Elmore captured the bronze medal in the 1,500 at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Mexico. A former member of the Stanford University Cardinals’ track team, she has won six Canadian titles, including four in the women’s 1,500 metres. This fall, Elmore will teach french and social studies at Aberdeen Hall in Kelowna. For more information on the Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon, visit www.desinationraces.com/runbc.

The Heat then lost 4-3 to Storm 97 to fall one step short of reaching the gold medal game. Heat manager Kevin Fedorak says there were many individual and team

highlights throughout the weekend. “Very timely home runs from Emma Gilbert, Taylor Kathler, and Tova Turnbull as well as a spectacular .522 batting average by Emma Lewis generated many of the 55 runs scored in nine games,” said Fedorak. “Fifty-one innings of strong pitching shared between Ann-Marie Crandlemire, Gina Selfe, Bailie Keating, and Julia Lambert kept the competitions on edge at the plate.

livered a bases-loaded single to score Frank Kaluzniak and Nolan Handley to make it 3-2. Kody Smith and Pendergast would later score to give the Jays the lead for the first time. But in the bottom of the seventh, the Bulldogs answered with a rally of their own, as Brandon Bufton and Brendan Gaunt had RBI hits to clinch a 5-4 win and Burnaby’s second straight B.C. junior title. The Jays were provincial champs in 2010 and 2011. The tournament MVP was Burnaby catcher Brody Hawkins, while the top pitcher was Kelowna’s Frank Kaluzniak,

who tossed a two-hit gem on Saturday night in a must win game, defeating Kamloops 3-2. The Jays were able to pick up several players from the Okanagan A’s who were eliminated from the PBL playoffs, and they made an outstanding contribution to the Jays’ success. Will Russell and Trevor Lofstrom saw valuable innings on the mound while second baseman James Walker and centre fielder Eric Mauer contributed some key hits and some outstanding defence. The Bulldogs went 3-1 during the double round-robin including a 10-3 win over the Jays.

Kelowna went 2-2 including an 11-7 win over the Bulldogs, while Kamloops was 1-3. The Bulldogs will be representing B.C. at the 2013 nationals in Dartmouth, N.S. (due to their 2012 championship) and have the option to do the same in 2014. Next up for the Jays are the Okanagan Major Baseball League playoffs this weekend at Elks Stadium. On Friday night, the Vernon Diamondbacks visit the Kelowna Jays at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Kamloops will face Vernon, and Kelowna will meet Kamloops. The final will be played Sunday morning.

She started playing volleyball in Grade 8 and her skill soon took over and she became an integral part of George Elliot’s girls volleyball team. By the age of 14 she had made the Team Canada’s women’s deaf volleyball team and she also continued to play other sports like basketball and soccer. Being a setter on her high school team, Sproule and her teammates developed a unique language all on their own. “Most of my friends know how to sign because I have been teaching them and in school I had an interpreter,” she said. “But on the floor I couldn’t have an interpreter so we used hand signals or numbers to communicate what type of set and then we would practice them often. Sometimes there was mis-communication but mostly it was smooth.” At the Deaflympics, Sproule is looking forward to competing with and against other athletes who are in the same situation. Interestingly, North American sign language differs from sign language used in Europe so Sproule and her teammates will

But it will also make it a challenge to sign with other people she meets from Europe. “North American sign language is not universal,” she said. “Just as a speaking person would we will have use a lot of gestures to communicate. But it’s going to be good because we can keep our plays coded and they won’t know what they are.” Sproule said deaf volleyball teams in Europe have been playing together much longer than in Canada, where the program is relatively new, having been together for about five years. She says the competition will be stiff but she’s looking forward to the challenge. “I’m really nervous

about competing against the other teams because the European teams and Ukrainian teams are really strong,” she said. “In Europe they get paid to play and paid to go to school so they are at a high level. Canada has a newer team but we are going to try our best.” Sproule is one of just seven deaf athletes from B.C. that are a part of Team Canada taking part in the Deaflympics which will take place July 25 to Aug. 5 in Bulgaria. Once she completes her event she is heading back to Washington for her second year of university where she hopes to become a social worker and eventually work with deaf kids in small communities. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Another 2nd-best for junior Jays For the second year in a row, the Kelowna Jays were the victims of heartbreaking loss in the B.C. junior baseball final. On Sunday at Elks Stadium, the Burnaby Bulldogs edged the Jays 5-4 to win the provincial title for the second straight summer. In 2012, the Bulldogs downed Kelowna in extra innings in the final. In this year’s championship game, Burnaby jumped out to a 3-0 lead as starter Josh Larsen kept the Jays off the board for six innings. But in the seventh, Kelowna rallied with four runs off of Bulldogs closer, Carter Sherban. Cody Pendergast de-

Trepanier Creek park re-opens

It’s been just over 10 months since the wind-whipped Trepanier wildfire started just outside Trepanier Creek Greenway Regional Park. That fire and subsequent safety concerns forced the closure of the park. But after a thorough assessment and removal of identified hazard trees involving regional parks staff and BC Wildfire Management Branch crews, the regional park is open to the public once again. The main trail, information kiosk and parking area for the 4.3-hectare park, is located just off Trepanier Bench Road and south of the Highway 97C Okanagan Connector Trepanier off ramp. For their safety, visitors are encouraged to stay on designated trails. The first official event for the reopened park begins this Saturday at 9 a.m. with the scheduled Take a Hike program. Visitors are encouraged to join a parks interpreter and guest historian Bob Hayes for The Trepanier Saga. There is no cost to take part in the event, but those interested are encouraged to register for the two- to three-hour outing by contacting EECO staff at 250-4696140 or e-mailing eeco@cord.bc.ca.

Kalamoir Park trail remains closed

It’s anticipated a trail through the northwest section of Kalamoir Regional Park will remain closed until the end of the week. The Mike Passmore trail in the area of the park to the east of homes located along Collens Hill Road and Weatherhill Roads goes through a small portion of the park that was burned during last Saturday evening’s grassfire. West Kelowna Fire Rescue were expected to turn that area of the park back to the regional district on Tuesday. Regional Park staff has conducted a preliminary hazard assessment and requires that this trail and area remain closed to the public until additional repair and mitigation work can be completed. It’s expected this work will be finished and the trail back in service by Saturday morning.

ou go to your high school reunion and all those people you thought were going to be successful ended up being losers and all those who you thought were losers ended up being successful. Why does that happen? It happens because success isn’t related to being popular in Grade 12, being involved in sports or having parents who have money. Success beyond high school is much more than that. It tends to come down to finding something that drives you to work hard— regardless of what it is or what it pays. You can be successful if your life is fulfilling no matter what the state of your bank account is. This is why you see people who come from rich countries to work for next to nothing in South and Central America, Southeast Asia and Africa helping the less advantage.

Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival stages risky material Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Two shows, one company and a group of young actors who just can’t wait to give some audience the song and dance about show biz. Returning for a second summer to stage outstanding material even the actors are willing to call risky and challenging, Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival is gearing up to launch its second act this Thursday with Private Eyes, a comedy relationship thriller about making theatrical art. “It’s a beautiful evening in the Rotary Centre common and you really just have to be ready to laugh,” said Xavier de Salaberry who plays Jeff Bowen in the musical [title of show] and Frank in Private Eyes. Kelowna Summer Theatre is a relatively new creation from the now defunct Viva Musica Society, which offers two plays (a play and a musical) for a month-long run, alternating the nights

Staggered to launch Thursday, so the cast could get the kinks worked out of the musical before heading into

the second production, Private Eyes is about a couple rehearsing for a show. “When I read [title of show] I knew I had the musical, but I read scripts all the way through to December before finding Private Eyes,” said Neal

Stephanie Moroz community where safe and traditional have been the normal theatrical palette. Playing to the fourth wall, an acting term for where the audience sits, it poses a tricky challenge as the audience tries to sort reality from story,

fact from fiction and some pretty untrustworthy characters. To say the least, it’s not work for amateurs and the five young actors who’ve come to the city to stage these shows have the sorts of impressive training that need this kind of base to build out resumés and secure big jobs down the line. Madeleine Suddaby and de Salaberry graduated from Capilano University’s theatre program together; Stephanie Moroz is a Vancouver actor and graduate of Studio 58; Nabil Ayoub was trained at the College of Performing Arts in Victoria and Graham Miles in the University of Victoria’s Department of Theatre. There are challenges here for each of them. Moroz, for example, hasn’t worked on a straight play in some time as she’s a musical theatre specialist. “Not being able to hide behind a song and

t’s not too often that the second in a movie franchise is as good as the first. Red 2 is an exception, in my opinion (humble though it may be), Red 2 is actually better than the original movie. Most of the old cast is back with new faces giving interesting content and adding to the fun. Make no mistake, this is a comedy. Sure, it’s about old spies and new tricks, but it’s comedy none the less and it’s light and fun—just the thing for a hot summer night. (The

BEHIND THE SCREEN

Susan Steen comfy seats and air conditioning in the theatre isn’t too shabby either.) Bruce Willis reprises his role as Frank, with John Malkovich as Marvin, Helen Mirren as Victoria, Byung-Hun Lee as Han. New faces Mary Louise Parker, as Sarah, Catherine Zeta-Jones as the Russian spy Katja and

Anthony Hopkins as the ‘crazy as a fox’ bad guy Bailey, round out the new additions. As the world once again plunges towards the brink of destruction, Frank’s team must find an old but deadly device and detonate it before it takes out most of London. Meanwhile, old rivalries, old loves and old enemies must put feelings aside and get to the bomb despite coming up against an old but cunning adversary in the form of Bailey (remember Anthony Hopkins in his worst bad guy character and then add crazy, he’s fun stuff!)

Ernest Borgnine held out hope that he would be able to reprise his role as Henry, the records keeper, but sadly Ernest passed away in July 2012, three months prior to production. The show features an uncredited Titus Welliver in the role. Mary Louise Parker who has a major role in Red 2, also starred in R.I.P.D. which was released the same day. She’s very funny and a great addition to Frank’s team as his love interest. Who is not a fan of Katja (Catherine ZetaJones) who’s Frank’s former girlfriend and who

Marvin says is “Frank’s kryptonite.” Look for a couple of interesting items— the father in Han’s photo as a child is actually his real father. And look for the “Moon Pie” treat in the safe house as it changes from partly eaten to whole again in one scene. And, by the way, I’ve seen a bunch of spy movies and let me tell you that ‘safe houses’ are never safe. You’d think they would have figured that out by now—safe houses in movies always have windows and doors which are easily accessed and which are always

breached. Boy, these spy guys need a few tips: • Never buy a safe house with a window facing the street—get an inside apartment with no view—or better yet, something underground • Decorate them up a bit, you know, if it’s going to be blown up 10 minutes after you get there, at least it could be comfortable for a couple of moments before the hail of bullets begin • If it’s a ‘safe house,’ how come everyone knows where it is? I’m thinking the safe house could change weekly,

something like speakeasies of old. Always fun to run around town looking for this week’s safe house location, and at least give the killers a bit of a run for their money. I loved Red 2—go see it. The cast is fun, sure a couple of people die, but what’s a spy film anyway if they all lived? I give Red 2, five reels (but then that’s me—only like the weird—you know that by now, right?)

Even before Marvel Comics existed, a successful Captain America serial was made in 1944 but other than a disastrous collaboration with George Lucas to bring Howard the Duck to the big screen, it was not until Blade was released in 1998 that the comic book giant saw success at the movies.

Davis from B3 is a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine and will likely serve as a bridge between 2011’s X-Men: First Class and next year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hugh Jackman returns as Logan/Wolverine, the immortal mutant with regenerative powers and shiny retractable claws. Based upon the 1982 comic series by legends Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, it is set sometime after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand as Logan travels to Japan in a quest to rid himself of his cursed immortality. However, while battling his inner demons, he must also do battle with deadly samurai. Written by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects), The Wolverine is directed by

Set in the summer of 1993, Plaza plays an overachieving, awkward high school senior who attempts to lose her virginity before she goes away to college. The supporting

Standing up for safe water in Africa motivation for paddleboard event After unveiling their 250 kilometre paddleboard event fundraiser at the recent Keloha Festival in Kelowna, local adventurer/fundraisers Mark Jennings-Bates and Peter Dodenhoff are now busy preparing for the event which will be staged starting Sept. 1 from the Delta Grand Waterfront Resort and Conference Centre. Jennings-Bates, an advocate for local charity Rally4Life, is hoping the duo can raise $30,000 for water projects in the Samburu region of Kenya, a desperately dry region that struggles with cyclical droughts and floods. “I have visited the region on a few occasions and we have actively provided safe water in the area already but the problem continues to exist for many farmers and communities in the region who repeatedly lose livestock and family members to drought” said Jennings-Bates.

For Jennings-Bates, this will be one of many adventures he has completed and is planning. This event has a unique challenge in that he has only stood on a paddleboard a handful of times and faces a few weeks of continuous paddling with some 45-kilometre days. For Dodenhoff, who owns and operates the Coolsurf SUP school, this is an exciting project, largely because of his love of the sport. “Stand-up paddleboarding has been a passion since the early days of the sport” he said. “My school, based out of the Green Bay Bible Camp trains hundreds of youth each summer and it is always fun to see the smiles on the faces of young adults who take to the sport so easily.” The duo is hoping that many paddlers from the entire paddling arena will join them as they pad-

dle through Kelowna, Lake Country, Vernon, Las Casa, Westbank, Peachland, Summerland, Penticton, Naramata and then the final leg back to Kelowna again around Sept. 11. Jackie Jennings-Bates, president of the Rally4Life Foundation, is thrilled to see the project advance and get so much attention. “For some reason, when Mark was on his paramotor trip in Australia last year, one of his stories received a lot of attention in the Okanagan and so he decided that a local adventure would not only highlight the beautiful fresh water resources we have here, but juxtapose that with the lack of safe water in many parts of the world,” she said. ““Hopefully, Peter and Mark can help communicate the simplicity of providing safe water in these communities and giving future generations the hope that they truly deserve.”

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities

Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. Since the program began, more than 300 households completed renovations with HAFI financial assistance, making it possible for seniors and people with disabilities to continue to live in the safety and comfort of their home.

Placing an economic value on preserving our environment M ore than 13 per cent of Canada’s gross domestic product depends on healthy ecosystems, according to Environment Canada briefing notes obtained by Postmedia News.

We strap ourselves in, press buttons and are transported to a time when the planet was sterile, devoid of life. We open the hatch and go out. And, we’re all dead! That’s because before life arose, the atmosphere was toxic for animals like us—rich in CO2, ammonia, sulphur and water, but devoid of oxygen.

Over millions of years, photosynthesis liberated oxygen, which built up to become 20 per cent of the atmosphere. To this day, all green things on land and in oceans maintain the balance between oxygen and carbon dioxide. However, since the Industrial Revolution, we’ve been burning fossil fuels, liberating more carbon dioxide than life can absorb. It’s accumulating

in the atmosphere and oceans, and that’s driving climate change. Back to our experiment. We knew about the toxic atmosphere before we started out and so we packed helmets and compressed air tanks, which we don before opening the hatch. We exit and wander about, looking at the eerie, barren landscape for an hour or two before becoming thirsty. There’s water, but what could we trust to drink? Life is part of the hydrologic cycle that circulates water around the world in rivers, lakes, oceans and air. Soil organisms like fungi and bacteria, as well as plant roots, filter molecules from water to render it drinkable. We knew that, too, and so we have water bottles attached to our helmets, connected by straw to our mouths. After many more hours, we become hungry. But before there was life on Earth there was no food for animals like us because everything we eat was once alive! We consume the carcasses of animals and plants and absorb their molecules to form every part of our bodies. We also anticipated that and brought food. In fact, I expected to stay a while and brought seeds

to grow greens. But where could I plant them? There would be dust, sand, clay and gravel, but no soil because it’s formed by the accumulation of molecules from the remains of plants and animals. Finally, the sun sets and although it’s warm because of greenhouse gases, we decide to build a fire so we can sit around and exchange stories. Where could we find fuel to burn? Wood, peat, dung, coal, oil and gas all store the sun’s energy as photosynthetic products that we burn to liberate fire. Before life, there was no fuel. Again, in anticipation we brought wood, kindling and paper and set them up for a fire. But fire requires oxygen, so nothing happens when we strike the match. The point of this exercise is to illustrate that the very foundations of our lives—air, water, photosynthesis, soil and food— are made possible by the web of life that evolved on a once-sterile planet. Living organisms on land and in oceans— including us—create, cleanse and regenerate those vital elements. Who needs nature? We do. Without nature, we would not be here.

Helping to fuel competition at the Kelowna gas bar pumps F f I f you aren’t concerned about gas prices in Kelowna, you need not read any more. As former U.S. president Bill Clinton famously said, “I feel your pain.” Abbotsford is next to the U.S. border, and if prices there were as high as ours, customers would head across the line to fill up, so that is not a good comparison. The best comparison is Kamloops,where fuel prices are consistently five cents per litre lower than they are in Kelowna. Even if you factor in one cent per litre higher in transportation costs to get the fuel to Kelowna, it still doesn’t explain the regular difference in pump prices. We can do many things as individuals to reduce the pain of gas prices. Everyone is different

I also sold my sedan and purchased a Smart Car six years ago to further reduce my gas consumption. Four hours to Vancouver for $22 isn’t a bad deal. In the future, I will be looking at the option of purchasing an electric car. I was recently in Blaine, Wash., in my capacity as the parliamentary secretary responsible for intergovernmental af-

fairs, to officiate at the start of the BC2BC electric vehicle rally. Electric vehicles of all types gathered together for the nine day, 1,500 mile trek from the B.C. border to Baja, Cal., powered by electricity and recharged by a series of rapid chargers all the way down the coast.  For many this can be our future: A future of quick-charging stations, and less reliance on fossil fuels. Unfortunately, this future is still a few years out. For now, the best explanation I’ve heard as to why Kamloops may take a back seat to us in hockey, but is in the driver’s seat when it comes to fuel prices, is because they have more competition in the form of gas stations aligned with big box retail stores. Here in Kelowna we

have limited competition, with Canadian Tire offering Canadian Tire money, and Superstore offering up to seven cents off per litre with a President’s Choice Mastercard or debit card. Gas prices are a concern for many of us in Kelowna, and some have asked me to get involved and get our government to regulate prices. Gasoline prices are regulated in Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.  However, the Conference Board of Canada has determined that con-

sumers in these regulated markets do not face lower gasoline prices than consumers in non-regulated markets. The federal government, through the Competition Bureau, is responsible for ensuring consumers have access to competitive prices and investigating anti-competitive activities, such as price fixing.  Under the Competition Act, price fixing and other anti-competitive activities are illegal in Canada. To report concerns regarding the gasoline industry call their toll free number at 1-800-348-

5358.  Meantime, I’ve been working quietly behind the scenes to attract more competition in our local market. There have been some challenges—at Costco, parking and space limitations have prevented a gas bar from being introduced, although they continue to explore their options. Where I believe progress can be achieved is with Otter Co-op. Based on 2011 data, a member patronage allocation of five percent on Otter Co-op Gas Bar fuel purchases in the lower mainland resulted in a re-

turn of 6.15 cents per litre. Finally, there is hope for consumers who are looking for a better deal at the pump, especially on long weekends! Otter Co-op is now searching for the right location in Kelowna and I hope there will be some relief at the pump very soon. Once an appropriate site is secured, the next step will be to gauge public support. I will continue to help Otter Co-Op where I can, and report back to you as developments arise.

Government scientists who developed the system in the Gulf of St. Lawrence say it is to help “search and rescue, oil spill response and to ensure safe and navigable waterways.” Weaver said the project goes well beyond research, and repre-

sents a major ongoing budget commitment by Environment Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to forecast ocean conditions for oil tanker traffic. “My conclusion is, come hell or high water, the intention of the feds right now is to ship bitumen to Asia through Kitimat,” Weaver said in an interview. Environment Canada spokesman Mark Johnson confirmed the

program was funded in the 2012 federal budget, under the government’s “responsible resource development” initiative. A federal assessment panel is currently preparing recommendations for the federal cabinet on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline project, which would deliver diluted bitumen from Alberta to the Kitimat port. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

He explains that ideal subjects are athletes who have been diagnosed with their first concussion within the past few days; when the injury is fresh, it gives the researchers an objective way of diagnosing the damage incurred and can also help track the recovery. When an athlete thinks they are ready to play again after a head injury, they are typically assessed by a family doctor who checks for standard subjective symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, and fatigue. If the athlete is symptom-free, they may be cleared to return to their sport. Van Donkelaar’s research will provide an objective means of assessing a concussion and has the potential to provide a clear recommendation of when it’s safe to get back onto the playing field. “Our goal is to contribute to the knowledge that will allow for an objective means of diagnosing whether or not a concussion has occurred and ensure that an athlete is cleared to play only after they have sufficiently recovered,” he said.

MATTRESS & FURNITURE SALE

  Research into the long-term effects on athletes of repeated concussions will take on a sharper focus, thanks to two recent grants received by scientists at UBC Okanagan. Paul van Donkelaar, director of UBC’s School of Health and Exercise Sciences, has received $287,000 through the Canada Foundation for Innovation and a second grant of almost $100,000 from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. The funding, he says, will help the university purchase equipment needed to continue investigating what happens to the brain after an athlete suffers a concussion. Sport concussions are widely reported and increasingly topical, especially in light of so many high-profile hockey and football players sidelined due to ongoing symptoms of brain trauma. Van Donkelaar’s team is studying how a concussion affects blood flow to the brain, and how that affects concentration, balance, and attention span. “We are looking at the physiological underpinnings of behavioural deficits in athletes who have suffered a mild concussion,” van Donkelaar said. “This combination of physiological and behavioural measures has never been examined before in the context of concussion.” His research team is looking at junior athletes, some as young as 11, who have suffered their first concussion and because of the high-impact sport they play are likely to end up with more than one concussion during their sports career. There are many football, hockey, and rugby players in the Okanagan, and the School of Health and Exercise Sciences has contacted most local sports organizations, letting administrations know of the ongoing research and interest in test subjects. The big question, van Donkelaar says, is how do you know if an athlete

who has suffered a concussion is really okay to play? They may feel fine, their symptoms may be gone, but what about any underlying, undetected damage to the brain? And a greater potential risk, he says, is the cumulative effect of multiple concussions, which could lead to long-term disability or even premature death. Van Donkelaar’s team will study balance control and limb motion while also examining blood flow to the brain.

▼ ACUPUNCTURE

Knee joint pain can reflect deficiencies in other organs T ‘‘

he knee is a complex joint that works much like the hinge of a door, both allowing the joint to move backward and forward as well as to twist and rotate. This makes the knee joints especially vulnerable to damage, which is why they typically sustain more injuries than do other joints. The knee joint is made up of the thighbone (femur), the two lower leg bones (the tibia and the fibula), and the patella, a bone that slides in a groove on the end of the femur. These bones are held together by four main ligaments, large bands of tissue that connect the bones together and help stabilize the knee joint during motion. Other structures in the knee include tendons (fihbrous bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones nand allow you to straight-en or extend your leg), tthe meniscus (a C-shaped -cartilage that cushions -the knee joint), and bursae, (fluid-filled sacs that cushion the knee joint, allowing the ligaments and tendons to slide across it smoothly). Normally, all of these structures work together smoothly. But injury and disease

NEEDLE NOTES

James Kaufman can disrupt this interplay, resulting in pain, muscle weakness and decreased function. A knee injury can affect any of the bones, cartilage and ligaments that make up the knee joint, as well as the ligaments, tendons, or fluid-filled sacs (bursae) that surround your knee joint. The symptoms of knee problems can vary widely because of the number of structures involved and the range of injuries and diseases that can cause knee pain. Knee pain can be caused by an injury due to sports or a car accident, an awkward landing from a jump or fall, repetitive stress or overuse of the knee joint, sudden stopping or turning (such as in sports), hyperextension of the knee joint, degeneration of the knee joint from aging, and diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout. Acupuncture can be an effective way to treat knee pain.

First, we must find out the quality of the pain we are dealing with in order to understand the cause. For example, if we have a feeling of heavy pain we will know that a damp pattern is involved. A damp pattern occurs when the body’s internal functions are disrupted, causing the body to retain excess moisture, kind of like a basement. People with this pattern will notice more predominant pain in damp

weather. If the pain is heavy and burning then we have damp-heat, or if it is heavy and cold, we have damp-cold. Sharp pain would mean blood stasis. A common pain for older people is weak, achy knees, which would mean a kidney deficiency. It is also very important to understand where the pain is located around the knee. There are six energetic meridians that travel

A COMMON PAIN FOR OLDER PEOPLE IS WEAK, ACHY KNEES, WHICH WOULD MEAN A KIDNEY DEFICIENCY.

through the knee. When we understand which meridian is being affected, it can help us to understand

which organs are being affected to determine the most important and effective acupuncture points to use. By understanding what lies behind the pain, we are able to go deeper into the problem to resolve the contributing causes. Acupuncture can be very effective to give the body the stimulation that it needs to resolve these internal imbalances so that healing can occur.

It can help to relieve pain, as well as to promote healing and strengthen internal weakness that makes the knee joint vulnerable, making acupuncture a treatment option that is safe, effective, and free from negative side-effects.

CAPITAL NEWS

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen celebrate BC beef In keeping with Wednesday having been B.C. Beef Day, it's a great time of year to cook a bite of beef on the barbecue, so here are a couple of ways to help you celebrate B.C.’s beef industry. One of these recipes is out of the old Beef Recipe Round-Up book I put out for the B.C. Cattlebelles (auxiliary to the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association) in 1986, when I lived in the Cariboo, and the other recipe I just made up and tried out the other day. Ranching was a traditional use of the land on the hillsides around the Okanagan Valley, although there’s far more ranching in the Cariboo and in the north now. When we lived there we found ourselves drawn into the lives of our ranching neighbours, most of whom became friends. So, we helped out at branding and again at round-up time, as well as riding fences when they were out on the range during the summer—and we bought sides of beef from the neighbour youngsters in 4-H. It was a different life, far from the nearest conveniences, in a sense, although the mail lady delivered our fresh-out-of-the-cow milk in big glass containers, with several inches of cream on top. We made our own butter from the cream, then I baked buttermilk biscuits from what was left from the butter in the excellent oven of my wood cookstove. Just as orchardists are part of the Okanagan community, farmers who raise cows for the beef we love to barbecue are a big part of the economy in B.C., so it’s to our advantage to support them by ensuring the beef we purchase is from this province—raised by our neighbours. If you feel strongly, as I do, in the importance of eating local and supporting local farmers, you’ll be interested in a move by a collaboration of organizations to promote the concept via a new set of awards for those who make, offer, supply or support the movement to eat local. For details, go to: www.facebook.com/buylocaleatnatural and click on We (heart) Local Awards where you can vote for your favourite nominees in 15 different categories. I’m flattered to have been nominated for my book, Jude’s Kitchen, and this column, as well as my agriculture writing over the last few decades, so you could even vote for that in the advocacy category. There are lots of beef recipes in my book, Jude’s Kitchen, available wherever books are sold, or at local wine shops. Many recipes are accompanied by wine tasting notes from renowned wine writer John Schreiner.

Don's Beef Oscar

Beef Oscar is a classic recipe for a steak and crab combo drizzled with a Bearnaise Sauce. It’s very rich, but pretty delicious. You could also use dried or prepared sauce. 1 1/2 lb. (.7 kg) tender steak 10 oz. (.3 kg) crab

BEARNAISE SAUCE:

1 green onion 1 tbsp. (15 ml) fresh tarragon 2 tbsp. (30 ml) white wine 2 tbsp. (30 ml) white wine vinegar salt & pepper, to taste 2 egg yolks 1/4 lb. (113 g) butter

For the sauce, mince the green onion and half the tarragon and add to a very small pot with the white wine and vinegar, salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil and simmer over medium heat for five minutes or so, until it has been reduced to about half. Cool a bit and scoop into the blender with the egg yolks. Melt the butter in a small pot and keep it hot. Whiz the egg mixture up in the blender, then leave it on, remove the opening in the lid and slowly pour in the hot, melted butter. Add the remainder of the chopped fresh tarragon. Once it’s mixed in and thickened, remove and use as soon as possible. If it’s too thick, carefully blend in a few drops more of the white wine, or a few drops of very hot water. Barbecue steak to your taste, top with crab and drizzle Bearnaise Sauce over it all. Steam fresh beans to serve on the side. Serves 4.

Beef Cubes on a Stick

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

This spicy marinade gives a delicious kick to bites of beef grilled over a lick of flame with some crisp, sweet vegies. We paired this with Intrigue Wines’ Damitz Good, a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon produced by Intrigue Wines of Lake Country. It added ripe fruit flavours and a hint of spice to the barbecued taste of the kabobs; very smooth and a good wine with barbecued beef. We picked up a top sirloin steak from L&D Meats and Deli at Guisachan and it was fabulous, as always. Those guys know what they’re doing. 1.5 lb. (.7 kg) lean beef

MARINADE:

2 garlic cloves 1 tbsp. (15 ml) minced ginger 1/2 c. (125 ml) red wine 2 tbsp. (30 ml) soy sauce 1 tbsp. (15 ml) brown sugar 1 tsp. (5 ml) Worcestershire Sauce 1 tsp. (5 ml) cumin powder 8 drops favourite hot sauce

SHISH KABOBS:

marinated beef cubes

20 grape tomatoes 1 green pepper 1 small sweet onion 10 mushrooms

Cut beef into pieces about an inch square. Mince garlic and ginger and put into a medium-sized bowl. Add remaining ingredients to make the marinade and mix well. Add beef cubes and turn about until they’re completely coated in the marinade. Refrigerate for eight hours or overnight. Slice the green pepper and sweet onion into cubes about an inch square. Put a little oil on a bit of paper towel to rub oil on each skewer to ensure nothing sticks to them. If using wooden ones, soak for an hour or so first. I use metal ones. Thread the meat and vegetables onto the skewers, keeping in mind where the hottest parts of your barbecue are and keeping tender vegies like the tomatoes further away from that on the skewer. Brush with any remaining marinade and reserve the remainder to brush the kabobs with during barbecuing. Just ensure that you cook each side after basting to ensure the raw meat juice is cooked. Cook them for a minute or two each side. Do not overcook. Serve over a rice pilaf. Serves 4 or so.

Some simple guidelines for readers of Jude's Kitchen

There are some basics about my cooking that you should know about in using the recipes created for Jude’s Kitchen. *I mean a large egg when a recipe calls for an egg *usually, butter and margarine are interchangeable *usually, salt and pepper is added to your taste *I generally use sea salt

*fresh ingredients top frozen or canned *organic products are my first choice *wherever possible, I use whole grains, not processed *include a variety of them, when possible *wherever possible, I use fresh herbs *fewer quantities of dried herbs are needed than fresh *I use extra virgin olive oil

*I use grapeseed or olive oil to cook with *I don’t deep fry *feel free to substitute. I do *have fun in the kitchen *encourage others to as well

Hundreds of Kelowna residents, Liberal supporters and curious passersby made their way to Kerry Park Tuesday morning to listen to the man who has been tasked with reviving the Liberal Party of Canada. Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau was in town as part of a multi-day B.C. tour, which began Sunday in Cranbrook. He spent the majority of his time in Kelowna shaking hands, answering individuals’ questions and posing for photos with his fans. “A lot of people say this is about Justin and the hair—it’s not about that,” Trudeau told the crowd. “This is about people feeling that, for once, there might be room for Canadians in Canadian politics.”

Trudeau touched on several issues Tuesday, including his opinion that marijuana should be legalized. “The current model isn’t working,” said Trudeau. “We need a government that’s going to be able to actually listen to the facts and do the right thing, not just pander to fears and try to win votes on ideologies.” He noted his current B.C. tour isn’t about convincing people to vote Liberal; rather, “getting them to think a little bit differently about politics, with a little more openness and a little more hope.” Although the Kelowna audience included all ages, Trudeau has been praised for his ability to connect with youth. He said he credits that to “making space” for young people in his campaign. “I understand we have a generation of young people

who are more involved, more engaged, more aware of what’s going on in the world around them than ever before.” On Monday, Trudeau was expected to hike to Kokanee Lake, the site where his younger brother, Michel, drowned in 1998. With five drownings throughout the province over the past weekend, Trudeau said increased awareness and investments in search and rescue should be made to help keep people safer. “One of the most basic responsibilities of a government is to do anything it can to keep people safe.” Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan was on hand for Trudeau’s visit Tuesday. He said he agreed with several things the Liberal leader had to say. “I believe in working together, as Justin advocates,” said Cannan.

“What he said, it’s hard not to agree with—all comments about balancing the environment and the economy, working together for a stronger future for not only our children, but our grandchildren (as well).” Kelowna-Lake Country voters heavily favoured the Conservative candidate in the 2011 general election; Cannan earned about 57 per cent of the vote. But Trudeau said those numbers don’t phase him. “There are areas across the country—now that we’re down to (34) seats— that are not Liberal right now. “I’m just trying to get out and meet as many people as possible right across the country and I’ve been really touched by the extraordinary response.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews. com Twitter: @PatersonWade

Opting not to use a microphone, Trudeau lifted his voice to encourage the crowd to raise their expectations of the federal government. Daniel Germain, who lives in Montreal but considers Kelowna his second home, was one of hundreds in attendance Tuesday. “I believe Canadians are looking for a breath of fresh air—that’s what Justin is bringing,” said Germain. Remi Ouellette wasn’t willing to label himself a Liberal supporter; however, he spoke positively about Trudeau. “I’ve got a lot of praise for the man,” said Ouellette, adding he wouldn’t be surprised if Trudeau eventually became prime minister. “He’s going to make it, as far as I’m concerned. His name’s Trudeau, and we all knew his dad, but I think he could do it on his own.”

A politician is defending the process that could ultimately lead to a farm on the Fintry delta. The North Westside Ratepayers Association has challenged the Regional District of Central Okanagan over its decision to seek a land swap with the provincial government for agricultural activities. “The proper process was followed,” said Jim Edgson, director for the area. The NWRA is disput-

ing a decision made by the RDCO board July 18, even though the land swap was not on the agenda. “We feel this issue needs to be given far more forethought and analysis before it is discussed with anyone,” said Diane Baldwin, NWRA president. While the item wasn’t specifically on the agenda, Edgson says it was brought up under a section known as directors’ items. “Items can come forward and action can be taken right there,” he said. RDCO will apply to B.C. Parks for a land swap

e w a e r y e just

so farming can take place and generate funds for the Friends of Fintry Park Society, which is responsible for Fintry Provincial Park’s heritage manor and barn. RDCO has offered to swap 129.5 hectares of land above Westside Road, which is part of the park but is owned by the regional district, for a lowland field. The field is part of the park but not used by B.C. Parks. “The low field area is quite small. Would this be a 129.5-hectare trade for say 10 or 20 hectares,” said Baldwin. “This 129.5-hectare property, presumed to be [in] the Fintry protected area, needs to remain under the stewardship of RDCO for its intended purpose.” Baldwin also questioned the financial viability of operating a farm, the possible impact on the water supply and the inconvenience for

residents if the farm includes livestock. “People come to Fintry to boat, swim, hike and, yes, to take in the history,” she said. Edgson says RDCO is simply investigating whether a land swap is possible, and if it does occur, there would be a lengthy process before agriculture could begin. “We’d have to meet ministry policies and neighbours’ concerns. It’s way too premature because we have to see first if we can do the land swap,” he said. It’s been suggested that RDCO take over the bottom land because B.C. Parks’ policies currently don’t allow items to be taken out of a park. Under the rules, that could pertain to vegetables and fruit grown there.

It’s anticipated a trail through the northwest section of Kalamoir Regional Park will remain closed until the end of the week. The Mike Passmore trail, in the area of the park to the east of homes located along Collens Hill and Weatherhill roads, goes through a small portion of the park that was burned during Saturday evening’s grassfire. West Kelowna Fire Rescue was expected to turn that area of the park back to the regional district Tuesday evening. Regional park staff has conducted a preliminary hazard assessment and requires the trail and area remain closed to the public until additional repair and

mitigation work can be completed. It’s expected the work will be finished and that the public can safely use the trail again, starting Saturday morning. The human-caused fire quickly burned approximately two hectares of grassland and vegetation in the park. The vast majority of the 27-hectare park along the West Kelowna waterfront was not affected by the fire and remains open for visitors’ use. People are reminded that smoking, campfires or fires of any kind are not allowed in any regional park. Violators could be ticketed and receive a fine of $100 in addition to causing a serious fire.

Community radio to launch today Trepanier park open

Village at Smith Creek to add 23 units

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

West Kelowna council has given Village at Smith Creek the green light to construct a four-storey, 23 unit addition to the existing care centre. The senior care centre facility, located at 2425 Orlin Rd., provides independent living with support services, assisted living and residential care. There are currently four buildings on the property. The proposed addition would be constructed between two of the existing buildings, within the current visitor drop off and parking area, fronting Old Okanagan Highway. To replace the eight surface parking stalls in the visitor drop-off area, eight new stalls will be accommodated in an underground parking structure located under the proposed tower. A total of 95 parking stalls are accommodated on site. “I believe the addition of 23 units will be welcomed by our community,” said Coun. Gord Milsom. Mayor Doug Findlater said he’s been tasked with moving elderly members of his family on three occasions over the past 15 years. “When they’re ready to go, there’s not always space available; when space does become available, the location is often a long ways away,” said Findlater. “Anything we can do to increase the amount of these facilities…on the Westside, I’m pleased to support.” He added the private facility pays significant tax dollars to the district annually and that revenue will likely increase with this addition. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com Twitter: @PatersonWade

Since the mid 2000s, a small group of West Kelowna residents have held onto the dream of bringing a community radio station to the Westside. At 10 a.m. this morning, that dream is expected to take flight. R.J. Smith, acting president and volunteer operations manager for the Westbank and District Community Radio Society said the station will be the first of its kind in the Okanagan. “The concept of community radio is returning the airwaves back to the people,” said Smith. “I think people are gratified to hear that they can have direct input on

programming and special events.” Westbank and District Community Radio— which can be heard at 95.1 FM—plans to offer local shows and local spoken word, according to Smith. He said the music played will be the type not normally heard on mainstream radio stations. Smith said one of the biggest motivating factors to get the station up and running was so West Kelowna Warriors hockey games could be broadcast live during the 2013-2014 season. “The hockey team is extremely successful and popular here in West Kelowna and elsewhere,” said Smith. He noted John Zacks

will provide play-by-play for WDCR. Other programs will include live DJs, local musical acts, local news, sports and weather and alternative music. West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater is expected to be on hand for the launch Thursday morning. Westside-Kelowna MLA and B.C. Premier Christy Clark also offered her congratulations to the new radio station in a recent release. “This new radio station is a first for West Kelowna and I know a lot of work has gone into making it happen,” said Clark. The station will be run entirely by volunteers, 24 hours per day, seven days per week. It will broad-

cast from the Governor’s Landing Shopping Centre II at unit 519 - 3041 Louie Drive, West Kelowna, and can be listened to at wdcr.ca. WDCR is currently looking for corporate sponsors and volunteers. “Community radio is never owned by one individual, but serves the community; therefore, the fate of this station… will be determined by the people of West Kelowna,” said Smith.

It’s been just more than 10 months since a wind-whipped wildfire started just outside Trepanier Creek Greenway Regional Park. Subsequent safety concerns forced the park’s closure. But after a thorough assessment and removal of identified hazard trees involving regional parks staff and BC Wildfire Management Branch crews, the regional park is open to the public once again. The main trail, information kiosk and parking area for the 4.3-hectare park, is located just off Trepanier Bench Road and south of the Highway

97C Okanagan Connector Trepanier off ramp. For their safety, visitors are encouraged to stay on designated trails. The first official event for the reopened park begins this Saturday at 9 a.m. with the scheduled Take a Hike program. Visitors are encouraged to join a parks interpreter and guest historian Bob Hayes for The Trepanier Saga. There is no cost to take part in the event, but those interested are encouraged to register for the two- to three-hour outing by contacting EECO staff at 250469-6140 or e-mailing eeco@cord.bc.ca.
