Fortis moves ahead with smart meters

Project will replace 130,000 electricity meters in B.C.’s Southern Interior, while natural gas meters will stay the same KELOWNA, B.C. - August 1, 2013 – FortisBC has decided to move ahead with the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project, after receiving approval from the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) on July 23, 2013, after an extensive public review process. “Advanced meters, also referred to as smart meters, will help FortisBC customers see how their electricity is being used, so they can better understand their bills and make more informed decisions on how to conserve energy,” said Tom Loski, vice-president of customer service at FortisBC. “Electricity rates will be lower with advanced meters than without them, since the new meters will reduce electricity theft and nearly eliminate the expense from manual meter reading. It’s an exciting project that will provide a variety of benefits to customers, both now and into the future.” As part of the BCUC decision approving the AMI project, the commission directed FortisBC to submit an application providing an option for customers to receive an advanced meter with the wireless radio transmissions turned off if they pay the incremental cost of opting-out. FortisBC has agreed to file an application by the Nov. 1, 2013 deadline providing details about the radiooff option, including fees charged to customers related to the incremental costs. The process of exchanging the approximately 130,000 electricity meters throughout B.C.’s

Hedley residents want cell service Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Hedley residents Neil MacLeod and Lynn Wells along with a group of other residents are upset with all the negative publicity that the proposed cell tower in Hedley is getting. In a press released dated July 25, 2013, Area G Director Angelique Wood explained that, “Although some residents of Hedley welcome the proposed tower, others have concerns.” The concerns are that, “The proposed monopole would be placed on TELUS property in the community. This is raising health and safety issues and also interferes with a view of the heritage Mascot Mine site from a lookout located at the Hedley Museum.” The group of residents who are for cell service in Hedley

Princeton

have done some research and put together the following information for the residents who are concerned. “The reasons for concern are based on fear, not fact. The World Health Organization, The American Cancer Society, The Canadian Cancer Society and Health Canada have all published fact sheets on the subject. The cell phone tower would not block the view from the Hedley Heritage Museum. See photo page 6. - The photo was taken in the winter, it gives a good view of the landscape. The cell mast has been added to the photo and it clearly shows that the mast will not be in the line of sight from the museum. In fact, the neighbourhood trees are more of a visual obstacle than the pole itself.”

Schoenborn denied transfer from B.C. Black Press

Allan Dwayne Schoenborn will remain in custody in B.C. after the province’s Criminal Justice Branch rejected his bid to be transferred to a forensic psychiatric facility in Manitoba. Schoenborn has been held at Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam since 2010 when he was found not criminally responsible for killing his three children in Merritt in April 2008. Schoenborn applied for the transfer in February, during his annual appearance before a medical review board, so he could be closer to family members. After the February hearing, the review board issued a decision that it “had no difficulty concluding that the evidence continues to show that the accused remains a significant threat,” and that he should “remain in hospital both for public protection as well as treatment.”

KOKANEE SUMMER SWIM CLUB: Lindsay: 250-295-0759 PRINCETON FAMILY SERVICES SOCIETY : FAMILY PLACE 120 Kenley Ave. open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 11:00- 2:00.

For more information please call 250-295-6977 (days) or evenings at 250-295-3981. CHRISTMAS LIGHT UP COMMITTEE: Next meeting August 8, at 6:30 p.m., in the Chamber Boardroom. (Never to early to start to plan!) Volunteers welcome to join, bring your ideas!

The review board recommended consent to the transfer, which must also be approved by the Attorney General’s ministries of both provinces. The B.C. ministry reviewed the case and determined public safety is better served if he stays where he is.

B.C. Coroners Service confirms identity in boating death KELOWNA - The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a boating incident on Heart Lake near Hedley on July 20, 2013. He is Clair Stacey Collicutt, aged 46, from Keremeos. Mr. Collicutt and a friend were out on a small boat on Heart Lake - a remote lake north of Hedley - on the afternoon of July 20 when the boat overturned. The friend made it to shore, but Mr. Collicutt failed to reach the shoreline. The friend reported the incident the next day when he was able to reach a less remote location, but Mr. Collicutt had died at the scene. The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.

B.C. Coroners Service identifies deceased tractor operator KELOWNA - The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died following a tractor incident near Princeton on July 27, 2013.

Mr. Vant’ Veld was operating a small bobcat tractor on Summers Creek Road, a gravel road near Princeton on the morning of July 27, 2013, grading the road edges near a farm there. When he had not returned to the farm, the farm owner eventually reported him missing, and Search and Rescue were called out. Early the next morning, Search and Rescue personnel found him in a ditch abutting the road. He was deceased at the scene. The BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this death.

SMART METERS - from page 1

Fire ban initiated August 1

Southern Interior will start next year and is expected to be finished by the end of 2015. The project affects only FortisBC’s electricity customers, and does not include changing gas meters anywhere in the province. Advanced meters are similar in appearance to traditional meters, but are able to wirelessly transmit meter readings and other operational information such as power outages. They provide a number of important improvements and benefits to electricity customers: Electricity rates will be lower with advanced meters than without them. Advanced meters will pay for themselves by nearly eliminating the expense of manual meter reading and preventing millions of dollars lost to electricity theft. Due to new Measurement Canada guidelines, most of FortisBC’s existing electricity meters will soon require replacing. Advanced meters address this issue while providing customers with more information and reducing the cost of operating the utility. There will be fewer bill estimates, since electricity use information is available for any date. Customers will know how much electricity they have used at any point during the billing period – they don’t have to wait for their bill to find out if their consumption is higher or lower. Customers will have more detailed electricity use information that will help them better understand their bill and better manage their electricity use. Advanced meters provide immediate notification of power outages, so crews can respond more effectively. FortisBC’s AMI project has undergone a lengthy and thorough approval process through the BCUC that included community input sessions in the Okanagan and the Kootenays and an oral hearing in Kelowna. For more information about advanced meters, customers can visit FortisBC’s AMI page at fortisbc.com/ami, or call our contact centre at 1-866-436-7874.

KAMLOOPS - Effective at noon on Thursday, Aug. 1, all campfires will be prohibited across the Kamloops Fire Centre. A map of the area covered by the campfire ban is available online at: http://bit.ly/12Rkuu6 This step is being taken to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety. The fire danger rating is currently “high” throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre, with scattered pockets of “extreme”. With the current trend of warm and dry weather, wildfires in the region have displayed very aggressive behaviour and required additional fire suppression resources. Human-caused wildfires can divert critical resources and crews from responding to naturally occurring wildfires. Open burning is prohibited throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre. This prohibition applies to open fires of any size, fires with a burn registration number, industrial burning, fireworks, tiki torches, sky lanterns and burning barrels. The prohibition does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or to a portable campfire apparatus with a CSA or ULC rating that uses briquettes, liquid or gaseous fuel, as long as the height of the flame is less than

15 centimetres. The open burning prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Please check with local governments for any other restrictions before lighting a fire. Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban, including campfires, may be issued a ticket for up to $345. Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated fire fighting costs. This prohibition will remain in place until the public is notified that it has been rescinded. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories, go to: www.bcwildfire.ca You can also follow the latest wildfire news * On Twitter at: http://twitter. com/BCGovFireInfo * On Facebook at: http://facebook.com/BCForestFireInfo

Legalize pot, save health care Black Press Guest Editorial

There’s a reverse echo going on around the country. Whenever Liberal leader Justin Trudeau says something, his comments are invariably followed by a response, usually snide, from the Prime Minister’s Office, in other words, Stephen Harper. Last week, Trudeau was in B.C. and he spoke for the decriminalization of marijuana. Not surprisingly, the PMO came out chastising Trudeau for his comments. Why not? Harper has nurtured a tough on crime reputation. To the Conservative government’s credit crime across Canada appears to be on the decrease, according to Stats Canada data released last week. Interestingly enough, statistics for marijuanarelated offences are on the rise and began rising at about the time Harper and the Conservatives won their first minority government. Coincidence? The point is, the Conservative government, previous governments and the U.S. federal and state governments have tried to put the lid on marijuana cultivation, distribution and use. The end result has been a very expensive failure. Estimates of the annual value of the marijuana economy vary, but let’s pick a conservative $10 billion. If marijuana were legalized, the federal government could keep $9 billion and pass $1 billion off to health care, education or social housing. What about endangered species, the coast guard or infrastructure upgrades? It’s time to rethink the approach to the war on drugs, legalizing marijuana would be a profitable and useful first step.

YourOPINION

If you can’t care for a pet, A suggestion for the Arts Council then don’t have one Dear Editor, We know man’s best friend outside your good natured little sweetie is the dog. But man is not always the dogs best friend when walking it. They have the poor embarrassed dog desecrating Mother Nature with it’s droppings and pee and leaving it there. How would you like to have that happen to your Mom?  People who walk their dog without a pooper scooper, bag and peebottle should be fined $200 for first offence and an additional $100 for

every offence thereafter plus made to take a six week course in compassionate dog diapering.   Should the offence continue the offender would be required to spend four weekends pooper scooping and beautifying the community and Mother Nature.  Can’t look after a dog with responsible love, don’t have one. Gift it to your mother-in-law. Regards, Joe Schwarz Penticton B.C.

Look to the sky—the truth is shocking Dear Editor, Recently, official appearing notices were circulated from the City of Kelowna & City of Penticton alerting the population that jets are spraying chemicals which have been tested to be toxic to soil, water & humans. Sadly the use of City logos were forged but the information on these notices is true and well documented. Whoever circulated these notices was well informed. There is a tremendous amount of scientific data accessible via the internet. geoengineeringwatch.org, californiaskywatch.org, agriculture defense.org, thrive movement. com and environmentalvoices.org are excellent sources of unfiltered information. Unfortunately there is a media blackout firmly in place & the scientists who are proponents of aerosol geoengineering are compartmentalized and do not appear to be overseen by any one.   Throughout my life I’ve been aware, observant, & appreciative of the environment near and far.  When I first heard about chemtrails (aerosol geoengineering) I was in denial which is a normal human response to information that one doesn’t want to hear or believe. When I saw these trails daily over my valley and observed beautiful clear blue mornings becoming murky hazy low overcast skies by mid day I began to search for information. I learned that these persistent   contrails which is another name for “ aerosol geo engineering” have been seen all over the world since the late 90s. In educating   myself I’ve learned some most alarming facts. California skywatch.org and agriculturedefence.org   scientists report that the snow of Mount Shasta is 60,000 parts per million of aluminum oxide    Indigenous  trees and plants are dying, growing food is becoming difficult.   Soil samples have revealed high levels of aluminum, barium salts,   strontium & soil ph is rapidly becoming alka-

line. Alzheimer’s has risen 260 percent in Riverside County over ten years and respiratory mortality has moved from No. 8 to No. 3 in a period of 6 years. Aerosol geoengineering of chemical particulates has been heavy over California for years. The website geoengineeringwatch.org reports that he sun’s rays have decreased 22 percent in 10 years. Weather modification seems to be the motive by the compartmentalized aerosol geoengineers. In an attempt to reflect the sun’s rays away from Earth by spraying tons of particulates the opposite effect is happening. Published NASA studies show that the reflective cocoon is holding the heat at night, not allowing Earth’s natural cooling and exacerbating   global warming. Weather can and is being programed and modified with devastating results. The documentaries: “What In the World Are They Spraying?” and “Why in the World Are They Spraying?”   by Truthmediaproductions.us are essential to learning the big picture. Both are available online.   “Thrive” can be viewed free on thrivemovement. com. I urge everyone to inform themselves and ask the questions:   Who is responsible? Who is profiting from the sales of chemicals? Who is paying for this assault on our environment, our health and well being of generations to come?   Who is controlling the media blackout?   When one knows the answers, the “whys” become apparent. The truth is unpleasant but only an informed population can act effectively. A good place to start is by looking up at our sky and being curious about what you see. Suzie Anderson Penticton BC

Open Letter to the Arts Council, Maybe if there had been better advertising of the groups playing throughout the summer at the gazebo—more people would come out in support of these events? It was a poor showing for the Allenby Road Band on Saturday, July 13. What a disappointment! This is a good group of folks, well worth listening to. My visiting friends from the coast thoroughly enjoyed the performance as I did also. Those who weren’t there missed some great music. Thanks Allenby Road Band, for great entertainment, it was a fun time! Kay Goglin Princeton, B.C.

A response is expected Dear Editor: It would be greatly appreciated if you would publish the following information for your readers. This is to inform your readers that 1,300 signatures from Princeton to Kelowna are on their way by Express Post to FORTISBC John Walker, CEO & President, BC Utilities Commission - Len Kelsey Office & Chair, Premier Christy Clark and Minister of Energy and Mines - Bill Bennett. Thank you to all who passed the word about these informal and unsolicited petitions. These signatures are sending a serious message that the people of British Columbia will not sit by quietly while FortisBC continues to cause excessive financial hardship by continually increasing our electricity rates, that the Two-Tier System is ludicrous and people are angered with Smart Meters being rammed down our throats.   In a letter addressed to the above mentioned, it is made clear that a response is expected within 30 business days. It is further stated that the ‘replies will be published out of respect for the hundreds of voices to know that you have answered their call.’ Stay tuned folks. There is a feeling that this issue is not yet resolved. Once again, thank you everyone!   Kelly Wheeler Oliver, B.C.

Posse acquire four players in exchange for 19 year old forward Kaleb Boyle PRINCETON, B.C. (July 25, 2013) The wheel that keeps turning, which is the Hockey Operations department of the Princeton Posse, has struck again in what is looking like a massive retooling of the Posse’s shelves. The Posse have sent Kaleb Boyle, one of their highest point earners last season, to the Campbell River Storm of the VIJHL in return for four players in a multi-team swap. Posse GM and Head Coach Bill Rotheisler stated “We need to become a more competitive team in the playoffs, Kaleb was a competitor here, but the assets we have coming back increase the compete factor we will have on the ice and at camp, and shows our commitment to being a strong organization to our players, and our fans”. Boyle, born in `94, scored 34 goals and 31 assists in 51 games, putting him second in points for the Posse last season. In exchange, the Posse will receive four 1995 born players in Gibson Doney, Bradley King, Kurtis Coburn and a player in the form of a future consideration, based solely on paper work still being processed at the time of the press release, but will be announced shortly. Doney, from Nanaimo, is a smart physical forward who has a reputation of being very tough to play against. Doney’s reputable physical skill has turned allot of heads. The Salmon Arm Silverbacks prospect will be attending their main camp and could potentially earn a spot on the team. Silverback’s representative’s high praise of Doney was a big contributor to the Posse’s interest. Doney also has Major Junior interest. King, known for his speed, split last season between the Abbotsford Pilots and Campbell River Storm, as well as playing for his hometown Chilliwack Chiefs of the BCHL for 5

games. Along with Doney and Coburn, King was identified by current Posse staff last season when they were rivals in the Comox Valley. Kelowna’s Kurtis Coburn made the leap to Junior B as a 16 year old, playing for the Grand Forks Border Bruins in the 2011-2012 season. Last season was split between Grand Forks and Campbell River. Coburn brings grit to the team, earning 68 penalty minutes in 24 games. Although still young at 18, Coburn already has a full two years of experience in the KIJHL under his belt. The player to be announced is a high point producing forward and has a strong potential to play junior A this season, however if returned to the Posse, he will make a significant impact. Rotheisler is excited about the new members of the Posse, “All players we are getting from this deal fit the design of our team. We have been working on this deal since we started evaluating our roster. All players are young, however combine for a lot of junior experience.” Rotheisler added, “These players, along with our most recent signings, are all going to be big contributors to a team that we expect will rise to the physical demands of a long season and playoffs.”

Princeton Hockey School

The Princeton Posse and Princeton Minor Hockey have partnered up to provide a four day hockey school opportunity for local youth. The Hockey school will run from August 19 to 22 at the Princeton & District Arena and is open to players born 2000-2002, and 2003-2006. The Camp will be run by the Posse coaching staff and will consist of two ice times a day and a daily off ice activity. For more information, cost and complete schedule visit the camp section of

Blackthorn appearing at festival Rika Ruebsaat Princeton Traditional Music Festival

The Princeton Traditional Music Festival is just over a week away and we hope we’ll see you all there. The Festival begins on the evening of Friday, August 16 with the opening ceremony followed by a country dance on Veterans’ Way beside the Legion. The dance will feature a live band with fiddle, guitar and concertina. Everyone is welcome. There will be a caller to teach the dances so no experience is necessary and people don’t even need to bring a partner. On Saturday and Sunday there will be music from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. right in town. As always there will be a big contingent of Celtic musicians at the Festival. Besides their concerts, these musicians will all be getting together for the Irish jam on Sunday afternoon at the Festival. One of the Celtic groups is Blackthorn, a Vancouver-based folk group who is here for their second appearance at the Festival. The group’s repertoire celebrates the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland as well as the folk music of English and French Canada. From lively jigs and reels to heart-wrenching airs and ballads, savour the melodies and intricately woven harmonies that bring this music to life in a new way, mixed with humour and, above all, fun. The group was formed in 1989, which makes it one of the longest-running Celtic groups in the province. Members of the group are multiinstrumentalists who will have your toes tapping to Celtic tunes and your heartstrings pulled with songs. We also welcome back Claddach from Kelowna for their fourth appearance at the Festival.

Claddach from Kelowna will be here for their fourth appearance at the Festival.

Claddach sings traditional and contemporary songs that illuminate social and/or political aspects of the human condition. Sometimes they choose a song just because they like it and it’s fun to sing with others. They also play Celtic tunes for dancing, hoping to encourage people to get up and dance. A new Celtic group this year is Et Tu Fluté, which consists of Irish flute players Brad Hurley and Becky Deryckx. Brad began playing traditional Irish music in the 1970s and has played for dances, concerts and festival workshops all

around the east coast. He appears as a guest musician on five CDs and is currently working on a duo CD with Roscommon fiddler Ellis Crean. He has also developed a popular website on the Irish flute at www.firescribble.net/flute. Becky is a more recent addition to the Irish musical tradition. She plays primarily in pub sessions in the Pacific Northwest but travels regularly to the east coast and to Ireland to expand her understanding of the music. Brad was one of her early mentors and they have remained close friends ever since. These are just three of the many Celtic groups appearing at this year’s Festival, and the best thing about it is it’s free! The reason it’s free is because it’s run entirely by volunteers and the performers are donating their talents. To make the festival a success the organizers will need lots of volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, please contact them. Even if you have only a couple of hours available your help would be most welcome. Give them a call and they’ll welcome you aboard.

Rockin’ in the streets of Hedley Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners returned to Hedley, B.C., for the second annual Hedley Summer Street Dance this past long weekend. The band came out to support and entertain the approximate 320 residents and visitors of Hedley during the now yearly fundraiser for the Hedley Community Club. “They had such a great time with us last year, they wanted to come back,” said TJ Bratt, organizer of the event. The Hedley Community Club came up with the idea of a street dance and dinner in order to raise funds to do something with the old baseball diamond. “It could be a place to hold events like this, with a stage—anything, we just want to do something with it,” said Bratt. Along with salads prepared by ladies in the community, Bratt’s husband Doug put out a barbecue chicken dinner with new potatoes for 150 people on Saturday night. The dinner was held in Woodlie Park at 5 p.m. Plate charge for adults was $12 and children $6. Dinner charges were to cover the fee for the band and a 50/50 raffle was held to raise funds for the club. The dance began at 7 p.m., right outside Woodlie Park on the main street in Hedley, lasting until 11 p.m. The street was packed with couples and families dancing and enjoying the great sounds of the blues band, and those that weren’t dancing brought chairs to sit and enjoy the music filled evening. Bratt says this event is one of the easier events to put together, “It just comes together with the club and the people/places that support us.” The club extends their thanks and appreciation for the support from the Friends of the Hedley Community Club; Donna’s Deli, the Hitching Post, The Hedley Country Market, the Senior’s Centre and from Keremeos; Pharmasave, Value Plus, Sanderson’s Farm, The Branding Iron, CIBC, Similkameen Agencies, Valley First Credit Union and Buy-Low Foods. Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners is a four piece rockin’ blues band out of Vancouver Island. They have been performing since 2007 at numerous clubs and events throughout the Island and the interior of B.C. The band has released a CD entitled Life’s Been Pretty Good and are currently working on their second CD. If you missed the opportunity to attend the street dance, Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners are scheduled to perform at the Summertime Blues Festival on August 25 in Nanaimo.

Add some flavor to an old favorite When cooking cabbage, the trick to keeping it green is to cook it very briefly. To add flavor, add some bacon and nutmeg, just like in the following recipe for “Braised Cabbage With Bacon and Nutmeg” from Sophie Braimbridge’s “Stylish Mediterranean” (Kyle Books).

or rosemary leaves Good pinch of nutmeg Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage and wash them if dirty or trim if wilting. Cut in half, removing any thick stems. Then finely slice. Quarter the remaining cabbage,

Braised Cabbage With Bacon and Nutmeg Serves 4 11/4 pounds Savoy cabbage 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 5 ounces bacon or pancetta, sliced or diced 1 large garlic clove 1 heaped tablespoon chopped sage

CAPRICORN: Capricorn, tight deadlines at work will have the pressure on you and your coworkers. But stick to the task at hand, and you will reap the rewards in the near future. AQUARIUS: Hard work will get you ahead, Aquarius. Don’t shy away from an opportunity that comes your way, even if it seems less than promising at first glance. PISCES: Pisces, you may find yourself in a leadership role this week and will be called on to make a lot of decisions. Take advantage of this opportunity. ARIES: Aries, try not to pick sides when asked for your opinion on a dispute between close friends. Giving the impression of picking sides may strain a friendship. TAURUS: Many positive things are on the horizon, Taurus. You just have to get through a few rough spots before it is clearer sailing this week. Pisces is a pivotal player. GEMINI: Challenge yourself this week, Gemini. Now is a great time to take on a new hobby or task and test your mettle. You will be glad you did when you accomplish your goals. CANCER: Cancer, trust those around you as they can be a valuable source of support and encourgagment. Work to be there for them as much as they have been there for you. LEO: Leo, a travel opportunity is just over the horizon, so have your bags packed and ready to depart at a moment’s notice. You can certainly use some time away. VIRGO: Virgo, once you think you have everything figured out, a few variables get thrown into the mix. You will show your ability to solve problems if you can handle the task. LIBRA: Libra, someone close to you puts their faith in your ability to get a job done. Devote all of your attention to completing this task, and it will only enhance your resume. SCORPIO: Scorpio, others are quick to look to you for help because of your work ethic, experience and attention to detail. Embrace these opportunities as they can help your career. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, it could be in your best interest to remain out of the spotlight at the next social gathering. You might have a more enjoyable time as a fly on the wall. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

remove the thick core and finely slice. Add the oil and bacon to a large lidded saucepan and cook on a high heat until light golden brown. Chop the garlic and sage, turn the heat to low, and add them to the pan. Cook briefly, then add the cabbage, adding a splash of water if you think the cabbage might brown. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper. Cover the pan

and cook gently for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, and adding a dash more water if it’s sticking on the bottom. You want the cabbage to retain its nice green color. Serve immediately -- you can reheat it, but the color may fade! PC118093

The government also intends to eliminate essential services rules that keep schools open with minimum staff during strikes.  Fassbender denied the suggestion he is setting up a “showdown” with teachers that would shut down schools and turn the public against unions. The structural change is needed to achieve the stability for students and parents promised by Premier Christy Clark, he said. “It’s not about pitting them against us,” Fassbender said. “It’s about finding

a new road map where we can achieve that goal.” A two-year contract extension and wage freeze imposed by the government on teachers expired at the end of June. Jim Iker, who took over this spring as BCTF president, told CKNW radio Thursday his union isn’t opposed to a long-term settlement, as long as more resources are there to improve classroom conditions. The BCTF is returning to court this fall to seek restoration of bargaining for class size and special needs support. School support staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees are to resume negotiations for a new contract this month, after walking away last spring because their negotiators didn’t believe BCPSEA had an adequate mandate to get a settlement.

Epic trip ~ memories flood in upon the return to Manitoba

This week we are staying with family in Port Hardy, North Vancouver Island. The guys were elbow room and an inordinate amount of time to myself? Are prairie folks really that different? accompanied by over sixty Orcas on their return into Hardy Bay after a moderately successful Because we especially wanted to spend time in Quebec and Newfoundland, we drove that fishing day Tuesday. I have been relaxing and remembering... entire day to the Ontario border and on through to Dryden. The weather was great, the dear old Last week I ended my tale with leaving Saskatchewan and entering Manitoba, the province van was very comfortable, and a good thing too, because northwestern Ontario is not noted for where I spent my formative years and then some. We had pulled off the main highthe quality of this section of the Number 1 Highway. After an uneventful night way the night before and cozied up to several large grain elevators and the usual in the Dryden Walmart, we continued through the land of the Group of Seven railway tracks in the border town of Reston, Manitoba.
