members. The new car share program launched in Kelowna on Wednesday.


Co-op car sharing initiative launched Christian Brandt says Kelowna’s new car share co-op program is a membership-driven operation. And he’s not just talking about people driving its cars. Brandt, who saw his dream of establishing the first car-share program in the city realized Wednesday with the launch of the Okanagan Car Share Co-op, said now it is up to the public to buy

memberships if they want to see it expand into more areas of the city. “We can only expand as new members sign up,” he said. He said if groups of 20 or more get together and buy memberships in a given area, the co-op will look at placing a vehicle here. He said areas where interest has already been expressed include Glenmore, Rutland, the Mission and in the Landmark Square technology campus area just off Harvey Avenue.

The car share co-op launched Wednesday with two vehicles, both of which are currently parked downtown in spaces provided by the city. It’s first vehicles are a hydrid Toyota Prius, paid for in part by a $17,000 donation from Interior Savings Credit Union, and a Nissan Versa, contributed to the program by Urban Systems. On Wednesday, local MP Ron Cannan said the federal government is giving the program

$29,600 to help with its start-up costs. Brandt said to date the co-op has 35 members, all of whom paid a refundable $500 membership fee. The cost of “borrowing” a car is $3 per hour and 45 cents per kilometre. There is a $3 booking fee that only applies for the first four bookings made by a member in a single month.

Ground will be broken on Canada’s first-of-its-kind private hospital in two months. Referring to the facility as Okanagan Integrated Medical Centre, Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie said construction on the estimated $125-million luxury hospital will take 26 months; therefore, the medical centre will likely open in late 2015 or early 2016. “All the work is being done to get this medical centre up and running,” said Louie. “We have a lot of partnerships—close to several hundred millions of dollars at stake here.” The proposed 100-bed, 200,000 square-foot private health facility will focus on all medical services except emergency, obstetrics and psychiatric care. The target patients are foreign medical tourists, as well as Canadians who would otherwise leave the country to receive expedited private health care. It will be built northeast of the band office on the south side of Highway 97. “We’re basically meeting daily, around the clock…to get the right people involved so that this goes without flaws,” said Louie. “It’s going to be first-class when it’s up and running. We’re going to have some of the most professional people in the world involved with this facility…we’re not looking at having mistakes made.” Part of that strategy may involve a partnership with a reputable entity such as Johns Hopkins Medicine International. Currently, Johns Hopkins Medicine International has branches in five continents, including Medcan Clinic in Toronto, which has more than 30,000 clients and focuses on prevention through early detection of health risks before symptoms occur. Last year, Gary Stephenson—former director of media relations and public affairs—confirmed Johns Hopkins international sector had begun talks with WFN regarding the private facility. Stephanie Desmon, senior media relations representative with John Hopkins Medicine, issued a statement to Capital News Wednesday that indicated those discussions are still in a “preliminary” stage.

Confusion about what Gangsters ignore police warning drug killed local teenager Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR


Kelowna RCMP say despite reports in the community that 17-year-old Marissa Ginter died after taking the drug MDMA, better known as ecstasy, it is not prepared to make that determination until it receives results of toxicology analysis. “We can’t say if it is related to ecstasy at this point, maybe it is,” said Kelowna RCMP spokesman Const. Kris Clark at a police media briefing Tuesday morning. “We don’t have a cause of death. So for me to say a 17-year-old died of an overdose is irresponsible on my part because we don’t have the information.” On Tuesday afternoon, the B.C. Coroner’s Service confirmed Ginter’s identity and said the cause of her death had still not been confirmed because further examinations, including a toxicology analysis still had to be done. Ginter, whose body was found in her bed at her home by a friend last Friday morning, was known to three other teens who were hospitalized in Kelowna over the long weekend after using what police originally thought was MDMA. Police now say the drug they took was, in fact, heroin. Police say they believe the trio—ages 15, 16 and 18— bought the drugs on the street in Kelow-


But while Clark said the three knew Ginter, he refused to immediately connect her death to the illness that befell them. All three were reported as recovering from severe gastrointestinal pain, vomiting and itching suffered after taking the heroin. Clark said Ginter’s death was turned over to the B.C. Coroner’s Service for investigation but the police are also continuing to investigate. Asked why the RCMP did not notify the public on Friday about Ginter’s death in light of the fact thousands of young people were in town for the annual Center of Gravity music and sports festival in City Park, Clark defended police action saying the force did not have enough information at that time. He said a warning was issued on Friday highlighting the situation involving the three other teens and their use of what police at the time thought was ecstasy. “To incite further panic or fear in that particular situation didn’t seen appropriate,” he said. Ginter was remembered by several of her friends at an impromptu memorial in Waterfront Park on Monday evening. Candles were lit and carried as 20 young people walked through the park to one of Ginter’s favourite spots, the beach beside Rotary Marshes.

A spokesman for the Kelowna RCMP says a police warning to out-oftown gang members to stay away from Kelowna over the B.C. long weekend was likely “too little, too late.” Const. Kris Clark said of the 150 people arrested over the weekend, a large number were gangsters, many of whom appeared to have come from out of town. Despite media reports earlier this week that gang members may have in fact heeded a warning by the RCMP and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit on Friday to stay away, Clark said there were plenty of gang members identified by police here over the weekend—members of, in Clark’s words, almost every gang imaginable. He noted three gangs in particular, the Hells Angels, the FOB (Fresh Off The Boat) gang and another gang that calls it-

self FOBK (Fresh Off The Boat Killers). “The warning may have been too little, too late,” said Clark. He said the police will likely issue the same warning heading into the B.C. Day long weekend again next year but plan to re-evaluate when they issue it. While Clark praised the work done by security inside the grounds of the popular Center of Gravity Festival in City Park that took place on the weekend, he said outside the grounds local police were kept busy, especially by drug dealers and people who had too much to drink. “Probably the biggest problem that we saw over the weekend was public intoxication,” he said, adding that was the reason many more than 150 people arrested were taken into custody. That number—while Clark described it as “what we expected”— was up nearly one-third from last year.



He also called the level of underage intoxication “quite troubling” this year and gave an example of a 16-year-old girl who was so drunk she could not give her name, date of birth or phone number and had to be taken into custody for her own protection and to receive medical attention. Thousands attended the three-day Center of Gravity music and sports festival, which annually attracts a large crowd of teens and young adults. Clark said in total, the police opened more than

1,000 files over the long weekend, up substantially from the 727 files opened by police during the same weekend last year. Despite that, Clark said the event played out as expected with the large amount of alcohol and drug seizures. He said many of the arrests were also for drug and drug trafficking offences. One concern for police was how drugs made it on the festival grounds despite security bag checks and searches at all gates. Clark said that was being investigated. He would not comment, however, on reports of a large drug seizure in front of the Lagoons’ condo townhouses downtown on Saturday night. In addition to its own security, festival organizers hired police officers to patrol and Clark said there were plenty of local officers on site as crowds grew, especially for the nighttime activities on the festival grounds.

For the third time this summer, a balcony fire has burned up the side of a building and into a roof, damaging two homes in Rutland. As of this morning, the Kelowna Fire Department was willing to peg the ignition point as somewhere on the second-floor balcony of a townhouse at 500 Lester Road. Arriving to find units 12 and 13 on fire at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the fire department extinguished the flames then determined a smoker’s materials likely ignited the blaze which forced six people and two cats out of their homes. “Fire crews were able to contain the fire to the middle two units,” said Kelowna Fire Department Capt. Eric Simpson, noting damage to the two units will like-

Jeff Carlisle ly total $350,000. It took three engines, one rescue vehicle, two ladder trucks and a command unit with 18 firefighters to complete the task. Kelowna Fire Chief Jeff Carlisle has called for building code changes which might prevent a fire from spreading from a balcony to a roof as occurred in this case. Following the Legacy Apartments fire last month, Carlisle made a public plea for the development to be retrofit-

ted with sprinklers on the balconies and for changes to the BC Building Code to demand developers take the responsibility to protect the outsides of buildings from this type of event. “In my career I can count about 15 or 20 of these structures that I’ve been to that have had essentially the same type of scenario where the fire starts on the outside of the building because the balconies are not sprinklered,” said Carlisle in a press conference outside the burnt-out Legacy condos. That event was just the latest in a series of apartment and condo fires illustrating how easy it is for a fire to travel up the side of a building to the roof where there are no sprinklers to assist firefighting efforts.

Private sector steps up to seek solutions for social issues Barry Gerding EDITOR

Two funding announcements out of Victoria last week should have positive implications for marginalized workers across the province. One initiative concerned the Community Contribution Com-

pany (C3), a new business model unique in Canada that places a value on profit and social responsibility. A C3 status will signal that a company has a legal obligation to conduct business for social purposes and not purely for private gain, with that obligation expected to at-

tract capital investment not currently accessible to the social enterprise sector by appealing to philanthropic investors who still expect to see some financial return. The second announcement was about a $181,500 provincial government grant for research and curriculum development to increase training and employment opportunities for labour market partnerships with enterprising non-profit groups. During an 11-month period, non-profit enterprises will partner with eight leaders in social innovation and social enterprise in a number of B.C. communities, including Trail, Prince George and Vancouver. These social enterprises will consist of businesses that generate profits to support a social

cause. The project will provide a comprehensive evaluation of the skills training and employment opportunities that social enterprises have the capability to provide, and make recommendations for using these practices to deliver more effective job training and employment support across the province. Ken Gauthier, a Kelowna community planning consultant with his own company called Urban Systems, says these initiatives are significant steps in finding non-government ways to resolve social issues. In this case, Gauthier says the job creation ideas will engage disabled workers, but he said marginalized workers generally also takes in aboriginal people, immigrants and

also women. “It’s not just disability exclusively, for if we can tap into all these marginalized groups on the periphery of society and find innovative ways to create jobs for them, I think there is a vast untapped labour potential out there that needs to be unlocked,” said Gauthier, a member of the B.C. Partners for Social Impact initiative. “We are at a point where we can longer expect government to take care of these problems. There are big affordability questions around social spending for government today…so we need to find ways to better take care of each other.” Gauthier said the C3 concept is breaking new ground in creating new partnership ideas for social enterprises and profit oriented businesses. “It’s a first of its kind

in Canada so we are fielding calls from groups in other provinces about how we are doing this,” Gauthier said. “That interest reflects a conversation going on in communities across the country about how we can deal with the social issues of our time.” In Kelowna, Gauthier pointed to a group called the Okanagan Change Makers, a non-profit organization fostering social innovation and social entrepreneurship in the Okanagan, as one such group leading the discussion of new ideas at a local level. “Much like Accelerate Okanagan is helping to foster high technology growth in our area, Okanagan Change Makers is a similar kind of incubator initiative looking to find new ideas to deal with these issues before us,” he said.

Gauthier said engaging the private sector to address social funding and job creation issues is an outfall of a provincial legacy commitment from hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics to bring about social improvements to the province. “What’s happening now has morphed out of that point,” said Gauthier, who noted despite changes in government since the Olympics, with Gordon Campbell leaving as premier and replaced by Christy Clark and a subsequent provincial election, the initiative has not been derailed. “Surprisingly, it has carried on despite all those changes,” Gauthier said. “I think it’s an easy thing for government to get behind, for the business community to take more responsibility to address social problems. “Even if the NDP had won the last election, you would figure they would have continued to support this initiative as well,” he said. “Serving in an advisory capacity to the government, business people like myself are justing trying to grease the wheels a little bit to get to some workable solutions that can benefit everyone.”

Everybody wins with fruit tree gleaning program Casey Hamilton CONTRIBUTOR

I remember seeing my very first cherry tree the first summer I lived in Kelowna. It was such an amazing sight that my eyes actually welled up with tears. You see, cherries just happen to be on my top five list of favourite fruits. I couldn’t believe how much fruit grew on a single tree and how lucky was I to be able to take a few steps out my door and eat such beautiful and delicious fruit! I was even more amazed to learn that many Okanagan residents who own fruit trees do not harvest all the fruit. I thought about how much food goes to waste in the Okanagan—hundred of thousands of pounds. This is very unfortunate considering there are so many people who do not have enough food to eat. In the winter of 2011, a few other volunteers and I decided it was time to

start a gleaning project. Gleaning is when people gather together to harvest fruits and vegetables and then donate the food to organizations that serve people in need, like the food bank. It just made sense to have a gleaning project in the Okanagan—an area that produces so much food. After six months of planning and hard work, the Central Okanagan Fruit Tree Project (http:// fruit-tree-project/) was born. In our first season, we picked and donated over 5,000 pounds of produce to 15 different organizations. Together our volunteers picked cherries, apricots, plums, grapes, apples and even tomatoes. It is incredible how the community has embraced the Fruit Tree Project. This year, we are on target to double the amount of fruit donated. We have also partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), whose participants come

out with us to pick fruit. The participants love the opportunity to go out on a fruit picking adventure and take fruit home with them. This is also a wonderful opportunity for fresh air, exercise, socialization, healthy food and increased mental wellbeing. The Fruit Tree Project

and other gleaning projects are important additions to any community because they reduce food waste, keep wildlife out of backyards, and provide food for those in need. Gleaning programs exist in several communities across the Interior Health region. To find out if there is a gleaning pro-

Another look at B.C. liquor laws Tom Fletcher CONTRIBUTOR

A glass of wine at the spa? A craft beer at the farmer’s market? Can B.C. survive the next wave of modernization of its archaic liquor laws? These suggestions are part of a review of liquor policy promised by the B.C. government in its February throne speech and rolled out Wednesday. Richmond MLA John Yap has been assigned to examine regulations that unnecessarily restrict business, making recommendations to the provincial cabinet by November. One proposal is allowing under-aged children to have lunch at a pub with their parents during the day, as they can do in a licensed restaurant. As well as considering licences for farm markets and spas, the review is to look at why it takes up to a year to issue a liquor licence to a business. Letters are going out to 10,000 licence holders and rural liquor agency stores looking for feedback, and a website for public comments is to be added in September. Don’t expect a price break, however. The terms of the review include en-

suring that the $1 billion annual government revenue from liquor sales and sales tax is maintained or increased. The review will not look at privatization of liquor distribution, a controversial suggestion the government backed away from last year. Recent reforms in B.C. have included allowing people to bring their own wine to a res-

taurant, and removing restrictions on buying wine from another province for personal use. B.C. has yet to convince Ontario and other provinces to lift their protectionist wine rules. On the enforcement side, last year B.C. increased its fine to $575 for bootlegging liquor to people under 19. Two years ago, legislation allowed liquor inspectors to employ minors

to test liquor outlets’ willingness to check identification and refuse service. A University of Victoria study released Wednesday called for B.C. to impose a minimum drink price of $1.50 on licensed establishments and charge higher prices for drinks with more alcohol, to discourage over-consumption.

kind new lamp posts; the new public pier will be finished by the end of August, and the city is talking about revitalizing City Park in the near future. To top it all off, there are almost two dozen development projects either proposed or underway in the downtown core right now. You can feel the vitality coming back into downtown—the air is alive with it. Of course, all this activity downtown continues to attract entrepreneurs, and we’re so lucky to have more delightful additions every month to the incredible mix we already have. One such entrepreneur who has returned to Kelowna after a seven-month hiatus in Calgary is Genessa Jackson. The talented young fashion designer ran her shop downtown for about four years before moving briefly to Calgary. Fortunately for Kelowna, Genessa and her family have come back to Kelowna to stay, and she’s now opened a wonderful new spot at 529 Bernard

called La Reve Boutique (French for “the dream”). The new shop features Genessa’s unique designs, all made by her from gorgeous fabrics sourced in Vancouver and the U.S. Something that sets Genessa totally apart from other young designers is that she only makes six items in each design and she works without any patterns—so each style is totally unique. That’s truly incredible these days. In addition to her own clothing line, La Reve features exclusive lines Genessa has brought in from New York, L.A. and Italy (after all, with two young children, she can’t spend all her time sewing). Her top imported lines are V Couture, Cottyon and Sorrento. She tells me that the response to her new store has been great so be sure to stop by and say hello to this energetic and creative lady. Had a lovely dinner the other night at the new Mon Thong Thai Food Restaurant, which opened a few months back at 1573 Ellis St.

Yes, there is a connection to the Mon Thong in Orchard Plaza, as it’s owned and operated by Ike and New, who are the son and nephew of Joe, owner of the Orchard Plaza location. Ike and New are into the fresh, clean look and their new spot really showcases this trend. White on white is the theme, with funky modern chairs, lights, wooden cutout screens and vases.

Esthetics program scores partnership with skin care leader A global leader in professional skin care has partnered with Okanagan College to offer students in the new and enhanced esthetics and nail technology program a range of innovative training and professional development opportunities starting this September. The Okanagan College Spa Training Centre is now officially designated as a Dermalogica Partnership School. This prestigious association connects students with the professional Dermalogica skin-health product line developed by the International Dermal Institute. Dermalogica is renowned in the esthetics industry for the high quality of its products and its emphasis on providing excellence in education through training and awards initiatives. Students at Der-

malogica Partnership Schools around the world benefit by gaining business knowledge and advanced skin-care skills from one of the most respected names in the professional skin consultation and treatment field. Learning initiatives for students in the Esthetics and Nail Technology program now include introductions to products and therapies unique to Dermalogica, as well as business-focused learning that covers self-branding, event planning and advanced retailing. After graduation, the connection with Dermalogica continues as students have access to further post-graduate professional development opportunities. This fall, students in Okanagan College’s esthetics and nail technology program can enjoy

a new and enhanced curriculum that gives them the full range of skills needed for careers in the growing field of esthetics. Students are trained in a wide variety of spa treatments, ranging from manicures and pedicures to facials, make-up application and relaxation massage. The college blends theory and practical application, using field trips, guest speakers, practicum and a visit to a spa tradeshow where students can learn and make career connections. Esthetics and nail technology graduates have an extremely high job placement rate within a month of graduation, with students easily finding rewarding work in many different settings such as day spas, destination spas, cruise ships and in their own entrepreneur-


Hospice association to host adult grief group sessions The Central Okanagan Hospice Association will host an eight-week adult grief group program starting next month. The grief group meetings will be Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Westwood Retirement Resort, 2505 Ingram Rd. The program starts Sept. 24 and will wind up Nov. 12. Attending a group is an opportunity to connect with others who are also experiencing grief due to the loss of a loved one. There is no right way to grieve and the group allows you to take your own journey, while travelling with and listening to others, in a safe and supportive environment. Each session builds upon the previous week’s discussions, so attending as many sessions as possible is preferred. The West Kelowna

group will be facilitated by a trained COHA volunteer and co-facilitated by a professional counsellor. There is no cost to participate; the only requirement is protecting the confidentiality of the group outside meetings.

Space is limited so early registration is required. Any questions or to register contact Karen MacKay, COHA bereavement services, at 250-7635511, local 104, or email

ing Centre that simulates a spa environment. Visit the website spa for more information about the program.

Poster boy for justice reform


e burglarized homes in Abbotsford, Surrey, Langley, Hope and Chilliwack in early 2012. Originally charged with 60 offences, the perpetrator eventually pleaded guilty to 32 counts of possession of stolen property, using a stolen credit card, possessing stolen ID, and two weapons charges. He stashed a small mountain of stolen goods in an Aldergrove storage locker, in his vehicle, and in a Langley motel room.

These items included cameras, computers, iPods, TVs and other electronics; car and house keys; jewelry; cash; prescription drugs; and various forms of ID, including passports, Care Cards, social insurance cards, credit cards and three loaded guns. Until his latest arrest, Dave Yaroslawsky was a one-man crime wave. And we say latest because this is simply the most recent chapter of the criminal legacy left behind by this man, who has

a criminal history dating back to 1995—when he was 13— and has 46 prior convictions for crimes such as assault, break and enter, and drug possession and trafficking. You read that right—46 convictions. Crown is asking for a jail term of five to six years on this set of charges. We’d like to ask something else. How is it that Yaroslawsky could rack up that many convictions in the last two decades, and

yet be free to carry on stealing and pillaging? How is it possible this man not been identified as a habitual criminal and incarcerated accordingly? The cost to society in terms of the property loss, law enforcement and court proceedings for which this one individual is responsible must run in the millions of dollars. He is a hugely expensive poster boy for criminal justice reform.

Infamous Gretzky trade continues to resonate in hockey world


n a hockey mad country like Canada, you would think Aug. 9 would be a national holiday by now. Aug. 9, 1988, is a day that lives on in infamy in Canada and the U.S, one of the landmark historical notes in National Hockey League history. Why? It was the date that Edmonton Oilers owner Peter Pocklington signed off on a trade for his hockey team, sending Wayne Gretzky to the Los Angeles Kings. At that juncture, Oilers general manager Glen Sather had built a team of young emerging stars around arguably the greatest player in NHL history. The team had won four Stanley Cups over the previous five years with

a nucleus of players— Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson, Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr, Kevin Lowe—who were still in their 20s. The idea of trading Gretzky back then seemed incomprehensible. But Pocklington was in personal financial trouble, and even if he could separate himself from those issues, he surely realized he could never afford all his emerging star players on a small market team payroll. In business, they call those movable assets, and Pocklington was all about business.

So trading Gretzky was a smart business move, one that would be repeated as other Oiler greats left town in subsequent years. That process Barry left the Oilers mired in Gerding mediocrity for years to come, except for that one magical Stanley Cup final playoff run in the 2005-06 season when the Oilers lost to Carolina Hurricanes in Game 7. In the aftermath of trading No. 99, Gretzky moving to L.A. put the NHL on the sports entertainment map across the U.S., beginning with Southern California which in the


years that followed would add the San Jose and Anaheim franchises. The U.S. junior hockey program is arguably on par now year to year with Canada, a reflection of the grassroots impact Gretzky’s presence made on U.S. minor hockey. Player’s salaries also began to arc upwards significantly after Gretzky, notoriously underpaid in Edmonton, became the top paid player in the NHL while in Los Angeles. It was no longer about loyalty, it was about the money for both the players and the owners, which remains evident today. Gretzky’s role in the sport has diminished since he stepped down as coach of the Phoenix Coyotes, but he seems OK with that for now, focusing

instead on his family and letting his legacy stand on its own formidable terms. I never got to watch Bobby Orr from the stands, but I was able to see Gretzky play once during his L.A. King tenure against the Vancouver Canucks. Watching Gretzky on TV didn’t really do justice compared to watching him play live, seeing up close what a great player he was. I’m sure the same was true of Orr. For me, they are the two most naturally gifted players ever to play in the NHL. While the tearful Gretzky press conference where he said good-bye to Edmonton will be all across the TV airwaves on Friday, the real impact of the trade continues to resonate in many directions still today.

Electric car fuel price should include road tax to contribute to infrastructure To the editor: Re: MLA Norm Letnick’s comments in his column: Helping to Fuel Competition At The Kelowna Gas Bar Pumps (July 25 Capital News), fails to mention there are no road taxes on the electricity (fuel) that electric vehicles consume. The road tax on gasoline/diesel is approximately one-third of the pump price. His example of the $22 fuel costs for a journey to Vancouver fails to recognize that at least $7 of this amount went directly towards taxes. Should the government not collected these taxes

then his cost, at the most, would have been $15. Most would agree there would be less complaints if fuel prices dropped by one third. Our government makes comparisons on the operating costs of vehicles between gasoline/diesel and electricity but fails to quantify the amount of taxes that are paid on each source of energy. His column in the newspaper continues this tradition. Yes, electric vehicles are better, but the better may not be as great as it seems. The “1,500 mile trek” of electric cars he men-

tions in the column points out this anomaly. The group undertaking the trek used roadways in Canada and the U.S. and contributed nothing towards the roadways they used during their road trip. The U.S. is no different than Canadians by including taxes, destined for road improvements, into the price of fuel. If the price of electricity doesn’t include some form of taxation for roads then visitors to a province or state do not contribute anything towards the very infrastructure they are using. The commercial

trucking industry working in the U.S. has long been governed by the need to prove they re-fueled in each state they travel through. This ensures each state receives adequate tax revenues from fuel sales. One consideration in the U.S. is towards a flat fee, paid each year for each electric car, which contributes towards this infrastructure cost. The B.C. government and others are thought to be looking into a GPS system (already implemented in other countries) to track kilometers travelled. The flaw with both approach-

es is how do visitors pay anything towards the roadways they are using. Public transit, in converting buses to use natural gas, pays carbon tax on the fuel consumed but again they don’t contribute anything towards road taxes. How many public transit buses are on the roadways using natural gas as a fuel? The question is how is the government planning to restore the gas tax revenue in a fair and equitable way?

NDP can’t conveniently jettison its political DNA

To the editor: Re: NDP’s Soul Searching Expedition is Going Nowhere (July 30 Capital News). A significant aspect of NDP post-election soul searching, following its catastrophic defeat by the forces of free enterprise, will no doubt have to be coming to terms with the need to move the party further to the centre, away from its ideological far left-wing base. While the federal NDP

appears to have decided to delete references to “socialism” from its guiding party preamble to make it more palatable politically and competitive electorally, merely removing socialism as a founding principle, without jettisoning its politically outdated doctrine, will not convince Canadians that the NDP is anything but a socialist party. Shakespeare perhaps said it best in Romeo and Juliet: “A rose by any

other name would smell as sweet.” Confronted with the political reality of the concept of socialism proving itself to be an abysmal failure throughout the world, being replaced by more free enterprise, less government and less social engineering, the question naturally arises as to whether B.C.’s NDP party will be able to “jump over its own ideological shadow” and abandon its traditional stand on the princi-


Government pension colours MP’s grip on reality Open letter to Ron Cannan, MP Kelowna-Lake Country. I read with interest your letter New Option for Old Age Security Now Available, Aug. 2 Capital News. Although I am a sup-

porter of the current federal government, I have to object to your use of words ‘’seniors choosing to work longer.’’ I find it necessary to explain to you that the vast majority of Canadians don’t have the luxury of

a government subsidized pension plan or any other type of pension other than CPP and OAS. It becomes a necessity to work longer, not a choice! Dave Ulvaan, Winfield

ples of democratic socialism, as defined in the B.C. provincial NDP constitutional preamble: “The New Democratic Party believes that social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be assured by the application of democratic socialist principles to government and the administration of public affairs… including, where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.”

Stripped of its defining political raison d’être, however, NDP soul searching to remain a legitimate electoral contender in the province would make it a journey of heading somewhere into the future without the benefit of a road map and without a clear sense of its destination—always carrying the baggage of its political past.

Top prize from Universitas 21 returns to UBCO—again Robyn Giffen, an anthropology student at UBC Okanagan, has earned a top prize for her oral presentation at the recent international Universitas 21 Undergraduate Research Conference in Amsterdam. Giffen is the third student from UBC Okanagan to win in the past four years.

Universitas 21 is an annual conference that brings together more than 50 oral presenters from nearly 30 of the world’s leading universities. Giffen follows in the footsteps of computer science student Ryan Trenholm and psychology student Andrew Hughes, who won in previous years.

Giffen, now working on her master’s degree, credits the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Award and support from faculty members for her win. “The URA experience really gave me an edge,” Giffen said. “Much of the work by other presenters was

Giffen’s URA project centred on creating a written Nabit alphabet that she hopes will be used in urban centres to educate people in their mother-tongue, before they branch off and learn English. Through her master’s work, Giffen plans to work with the

Nabit-speaking community to finalize the writing system, and incorporate it into the education system. Prior to her U21 win, Giffen also won a top oral prize at the 2012 Multi-disciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference in Vancouver, and she has been selected to speak this October in Ottawa at the Foundation for Endangered Languages.

She credits the support of her supervisor, associate professor Christine Schreyer, and URA coordinators associate professor Bruce Mathieson and senior instructor Trudy Kavanagh. “They all gave me a lot of feedback and helped me practise and fine-tune my presentation.” Giffen has also been awarded a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Grant to pursue her graduate work. Kavanagh, an advisor for the URA program since 2010, says the program helps students focus on their academic and research interests. “Unlike some other funding opportunities that rate grades as the most important factor, URAs consider the quality of the research proposal as most important, which leads to exciting opportunities for students to investigate a question of interest.”


Shrek the Musical to take over from Elf An inability to secure the performance rights for the musical adaptation of the Christmas comedy film Elf has caused the Kelowna Actors Studio to seek out an alternative. And that alternative will be Shrek the Musical. KAS artistic managing director Randy Leslie said single tickets sales

for Shrek are now on sale while theatre season subscribers will be transferred automatically into this production. “As we plan our seasons so far in advance we are always careful to include the caveat that all shows are subject to rights availability” explained KAS general manager,

Nathan Flavel. “Over the past 10 years we have been quite fortunate, only having to replace one other show in our history” Leslie added that he thinks theatre patrons will be equally happy with the humour, music and content of Shrek. “We had a chance to

catch the show on Broadway a few years back and it really was quite the spectacle,” Leslie said. “I’m excited to see how KAS puts its mark on the hysterical family comedy. “Elf may be on the shelf for now but I’m sure it will appear in an upcoming season.”


Host families sought for ASSE program The ASSE Student Exchange Program, a non profit, public benefit organization, is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from France, Thailand, Italy, Mexico and Taiwan. Students are already awaiting word on their host family for the 2013-2014 academic school year. Host families provide room, board, and guidance for a teen-

ager living thousands of miles from home. Couples, single parents and families with and without children in the home are all encouraged to apply. The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before the 2013-14 school year begins and each ASSE student is fully insured, brings his/her own personal spending money and expects

to bear his/her share of household responsibilities, as well as being included in normal family activities and lifestyles.

Pair ready for shave of a haircut Two Enderby sisters are shedding a few inches this summer in aid of Camp Winfield. Enderby Lion Tracy Ell and Jackie Pearase, Regional District of North Okanagan Area F director, are raising money for the camp by shaving their heads Aug. 11. In addition to generating funds for the Easter Seals Camp, the pair, along with Enderby and District financial general manager Ted Morrison, will be shorn of their locks as a tribute to John Harrison, long-time camp fundraiser and Enderby Lion who died in 2012. “John raised thousands and thousands of dollars for Camp Win-

field over seven years by shaving his head and collecting donations,” explained Ell. “We want to recognize his efforts, his love of children and his dedication to this wonderful organization. So we are following in his footsteps.” Harrison raised over $2,200 in 2012 and the Enderby trio would also like to make significant donations to the camp. Camp Winfield is one of three Easter Seals camps that provide overnight summer camping experiences to children aged six to 18 with a mental and/or physical disability. The goal is to build confidence, independence and peer interaction

through fun activities including a climbing wall, water polo, wheelchair basketball and more. Over 800 campers attend a BC Easter Seals camp each season, with the camps fully subsidized by the BC Lions Society of Children with Disabilities. Donations, fundraising events and ongoing volunteer efforts make it possible for campers to attend free of charge. “Kids love going to summer camp and Camp Winfield gives that experience to those who might not otherwise get the chance,” noted Pearase. “Having a disabled child can mean that there is no extra money for camp so

it is important that places like Camp Winfield continue. My sister, Ted and I are simply doing our bit to make camp a reality for a few of those kids.” Pearase has no fear of the drastic haircut, having gone down to the wood about eight years ago in a fundraiser for cancer research. “But we have not seen my sister’s bald head since she was a baby so it could be interesting,” she added. “We have lots of hats, though.” The Aug. 11 event includes lots of fun activities including a talent show around noon and the head shave at about 1 p.m. The sisters will be donating their hair, which has a combined length of

Treatment for wear and tear on our necks


ervical spondylosis is a neck condition due to age-related wear and tear to the neck vertebrae, causing soreness, distention, radiating pain or heaviness of the neck, shoulder, arm or head, and even numbness of the fingers. The cause is commonly due to degeneration of the discs and cervical vertebra which puts pressure on the spinal cord or surrounding nerves in the neck region. The tender tissues of spinal cord and blood vessels are mostly protected by the bone of the spinal column. As long as we are healthy everything is fine, but when we get older this bone starts to degenerate and bony protrusions can hurt the soft tissues. Spondylosis means that the actual body of the vertebra starts to wear out and the disc in between becomes flatter and dryer. This can lead to compression of the nerve or


James Kaufman closing of the blood vessels. Symptoms of cervical spondylosis are pain and stiffness in the neck, tingling and numbness in the arms, hands, legs or feet, limited range of motion, dizziness and headache. The pain can be so severe that we can’t think clearly and it can keep us awake at night. The condition can also affect coordination, reflexes and walking. Exercises, gentle manipulations, traction, massage and warmth applications can be helpful to this condition. Surgery is a last-case option, because of the delicacy of the surrounding tissues. Acupuncture can be helpful too. In Chi-

nese medicine we say the cause of this condition is due to kidney deficiency and qi-energy and blood stagnation. The kidney are said to control the bones and have an influence particularly on the spine. As the kidneys weaken with age, the bones get weak. In some people the bones get weaker faster than others and this is a direct cause of a kidney deficiency. Acupuncture works buy using needles to stimulate qi-energy and blood circulation in the area of pain and discomfort. We do this by stimulating the meridian pathway associated with the pain, both locally and distally. Of course it is always important to do points for the root cause of this condition which is the kidneys. One of the reasons for the pain can be a high level of tension in the surrounding muscles. This is a defensive re-

The students apply for the bursaries and are selected on the following criteria—need, community/volunteering involvement and academics. The funds are to be utilized for tuition

Kelowna Morningside’s new president David Barker said: “We are delighted to make these awards again and each year goes by the focus and determination of the students never ceases to impress us all.

action by the body to protect the neck. But this tension can also maintain the pain. So we have to release the tension gently—not too quickly—and acupuncture can help here. When the tension is lessened more exercises can be done that will also increase the flow of energy and blood. Acupuncture is a very helpful alternative in treat-

ing cervical spondylosis and is very effective in reducing the pain. It mobilizes the body’s own reserves and helps to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. James Kaufman is a registered acupuncturist at Okanagan Acupuncture Centre, 1625 Ellis St, downtown Kelowna.

there has been back and forth debate whether or not the private hospital will be legally challenged. Louie contends self-governance allows WFN to build the centre without provincial interference. Last year Gordon Christie, an associate professor with the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Law, told several media outlets he expects the federal government will step in and challenge the concept in the courts. He did, however,

admit this type of facility is treading in untested waters; therefore, it’s impossible to predict the outcome. In an interview last year, Alan Davidson, an assistant professor of health studies at the University of British Columbia Okanagan, told Capital News he didn’t believe the private facility would violate the Canada Health Act. “The Canada Health Act is really just a vehicle for regulating the funding relationships between the federal governments and

the provinces,” Davidson said in April 2012. “It’s not a matter of what’s legal and what’s illegal. The federal government does not have the authority to determine what health care services are lawful or unlawful because health care in Canada is a provincial responsibility—so the Canada Health Act is kind of a red herring.” Capital News attempted to reach Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas for comment Wednesday; however, he is currently away on vaca-

tion. Last year, Albas said he was unaware whether WFN’s plans would violate the Canada Health Act. “To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that a First Nation’s committee has announced a project to this kind of magnitude,” Albas said . Former Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart called the proposal “a bold move” when he learned of the plans last year. “I think the federal government needs to be thoughtful when they’re considering what the impacts are going to be.” Louie said he doesn’t expect the federal government will take issue with the proposed private health facility. He noted “hundreds of thousands of dollars” have been spent on legal advice and analysis. “We’ve done a huge amount of homework getting ready for this,” said Louie. “I’m not going to say that there won’t be a challenge, but if there is, I think our homework will prevail.” “We see this as being something that’s so positive…that it will just overwhelm any negativity that might revolve around this.” Louie anticipates



expected to begin on a first-of-its-kind in Canada private hospital in two months. According to Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie (pictured above), the private facility is expected to open in late 2015 or early 2016. 400 jobs will be created through Okanagan Integrated Medical Centre’s first phase. Eventually, he hopes “thousands of jobs” will be created thanks to the private hospital. “We have so much interest in the medical field now that we’re going to see a snowball effect, I believe. I see this growing in very significant layers. It’s definitely going to transform the job situation here dramatically.”

Brandt said when he came to Kelowna 18 months ago, his dream was to establish what he called a sustainable transportation system here, something he said is now closer to reality with the launch of the car share co-op. But while he was being praised for his work getting the car share co-op up and running, he credited the coop members, who he said believed in the plan even before it had a car on the road, as well as the public, private and corporate partners who have helped fund the program to date. Mayor Walter Gray, who was on hand for the launch, urged the public to support the program saying despite Kelowna’s abundance of agricultural land, the city has become one of the most “car-centric” cities in the country. “This program makes good environmental sense,” he said. Angela Nagy, who helped Brandt establish the car share co-op here, said part of the work OGO, as it has dubbed itself, plans to do is monitor the impact it is having on the local environment. Nagy said it plans to keep track of how many cars it helps take off local roads and how much pollution it helps eradicate. The program offers co-op members who need a car for a short length of time an opportunity to use one without the expense of paying to buy and operate a vehicle themselves. Based on successful car share programs in other cities in Canada, Brandt said organizers here were helped by car share co-op officials in larger cities like Vancouver and Winnipeg.

Honeymoon Suite at Penticton Peach Festival Kristi Patton STAFF REPORTER

Call it a renaissance of rock or chalk it up to nostalgia, whatever the reason Canadian multi-platinum band Honeymoon Suite is taking full advantage of it. “It has been and it seems like it has been coming back for us for years,” said Honeymoon Suite frontman Johnny Dee (a.k.a. John DeGiuli). “I think because bands of our era just had really great songs. If they weren’t good songs they don’t remain and if they have integrity they stay a long time. That is why radio stations still play them and people ask for them. There is a market for it and it is a big market.” For 25 years they have rocked crowds around the world and tonight Honeymoon Suite performs at the Penticton Peach Festival at Okanagan Lake Park. The band has a legacy of five studio albums and numerous hits including songs such as New Girl Now, Feel It Again, Burning In Love and What Does It Take—hits that have kept them selling out shows and packing crowds around their stages at festivals. “I don’t want to knock the new music that people and bands come out with now, but I don’t listen to it. The music now sounds really electronic, linear and there is a lack of feel to it that I miss. Some of the melodies are great but there is a lack of realism and it doesn’t fool me,” said DeGiuli. “I think we


CANADIAN rock band Honeymoon Suite is the headline act at Penticton Peach Festival, Aug. 8 at Okanagan Lake Park in Penticton. bring what is missing in current music to the table, like a lot of other bands of our era. I also think that is one of the main things people are starting to realize now.” It was when DeGiuli and Derry Grehan (guitarist/songwriter) met through a business manager that things really started taking off for the Niagara Falls, Ont. based band. Although sceptical of the meet up, DeGiuli said he hit it off almost immediately with Grehan and the pair became good friends. Grehan brought with him a couple of songs in the bag, including New Girl Now, and they entered it into a Toronto radio contest. “We also had sent out our demo everywhere and as record companies became interested in it, the radio began playing it because of the contest. It was just this snowball ef-

fect. We had a buzz going for our name and the next thing was making that first record,” said DeGiuli. Throughout 1983 and 1984 the band toured Canada and the U.S. extensively headlining club gigs and opening for acts such as Billy Idol, April Wine, Jethro Tull, The Kinks and Bryan Adams. After releasing their second album, The Big Prize, they jumped on board tours in the U.S. with Heart, .38 Special, ZZ Top, Journey, Starship and Saga. But, it always came a little tougher south of the border. “Regardless of the hits, you get up on stage in the U.S. and after about four or five songs then the crowd realizes that yeah this is an alright band. In the very beginning it took a little bit to be warmed up to especially with a name like Honeymoon Suite. It sounds kind of wimpy

for a rock band. Americans were pretty tough. You are opening for ZZ Top and you get ready to go on stage and hear ‘Ladies and gentlemen, Honeymoon Suite,’ and see people sitting there in their chairs and thinking Honeymoon Suite, yeah right,” said DeGiuli. They were spit on, had knives thrown at them and were given the bird by Ted Nugent fans but still kept the name and worked to win their U.S. crowds over by simply putting out good music. Still, it is back on Canadian soil where their biggest fan base resides. “The Canadian thing right now is keeping us really, really busy. I don’t analyze it much. All I know is that it is working right now and we are working on getting a new record,” said DeGiuli. The frontman said they want to get on the

radio with new material and as much as Canada has been loyal to them and they are thankful for that, they want to work on earning those fans back and pick up new ones outside the country. “We would like to get out there with some bigger band, possibly on a two or three week tour and let people know we are still alive. The Internet and Facebook and all that stuff has been great for that too and we are constantly being asked to play across the border,” said DeGiuli. We are constantly writing new songs but summer gets really, really busy for us so we are hoping by September/ October things will slow down. Derry and I have already put our ideas on the table, we just need to decide what stuff sounds like Honeymoon Suite.” So DeGiuli’s dream of one day living in the Okanagan will have to wait. For now, he will just get glimpses of the area that he calls “beautiful.” “As long as I can deliver, I will do this. I love it. Sometimes it gets kind of crazy with the business stuff and travelling complications, but once you get up on stage, especially in a place like Penticton, it is all forgotten and all good,’ said DeGiuli. Honeymoon Suite performs at Okanagan Lake Park in Penticton tonight, Aug. 8, at 9:15 p.m. All entertainment in the park during Peach Festival is free.

In the movie Elysium, it is a high-tech space station where the very wealthy live and have access to all the luxuries that can be afforded, including medical machines that offer instant cures to most medical conditions. Everyone else lives below on the overpopulated, disease ridden “Third World slum” that Earth has become.

Kelowna Fusion claim Canadian slo pitch Championship Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Fusion women’s slo-pitch team arrived on the final day of competition at the 2013 SPN Slo-Pitch National Championships this past Monday in Kelowna with their backs firmly against the wall. The night before the team had lost its first game of the Ladies B Canadian Championships and was heading into a semi-final game against rival Kelowna team iCandy. Awaiting the winner of the semifinal was top rated and undefeated Vancouver club All Fired Up, a team that either Kelowna club would have to beat twice in the final to emerge victorious. On top of that, Fusion would enter the day with its regular pitcher out of the tournament after being injured the day before. So when Ali Furgala stepped to the mound on Monday, there was a lot riding on her performance. An infielder and part time pitcher, Furgala was thrown into the fire in what would be three straight do-or-die performances that would earn Fusion the title of Canadian champions. First the team would

outlast iCandy to advance to the final where Furgala would earn the win in two straight victories over All Fired Up, edging the Vancouver club 7-4 in game one of the final before blasting them 9-3 to win it all. “We were expecting to have our full-time pitcher in there,” said Furgala, a day after the championship win. “She’s pitched almost every single game for us. For her to get injured and go to a parttime pitcher was tough. But everyone was still in the game and still supportive. I don’t have the pitches she has. I just threw strikes and was confident in everyone behind me, knowing that if they hit it the girls behind me were going to get it.” Vancouver’s All Fired Up began the final with the momentum, having beaten Fusion the day before to advance to the championship. Game one was a tight game that saw Fusion earn the win late in the game. A quick 10 minute break and the teams were back on the field, but a supportive home crowd watched as the Fusion surged ahead and convincingly beat All Fired Up 9-3, the team’s third consecutive win on

Monday. “There were so many supporters and fans that stayed there for all three of our games on Monday,” said Furgala. “They stayed and cheered us on. There were girls from our ball team from a few years ago that stayed all day and cheered and gave us support. It helped so much.” Kelowna hosted the SPN Nationals at the women’s B, C and D levels as well as the men’s C and D levels, with games running all weekend at the Mission Sportsfields as well as the McCulloch

sociation played host to the 64 teams in total and helped organize the event, including preparing fields and organizing the many volunteers needed. Furgala said it was an excellent event. “It was very competitive and a very well run tournament,” she said. “There was nothing they could have done different.” Sponsored by Papito’s Pizza and West Coast Authentic, the Kelowna Fusion earned the right to play at the nationals by winning the provincial championships last year. It was the team’s first national championship. Outfielder Tanya Hall was selected by Fusion’s

coaches as the MVP of the tournament. Furgala says it’s still hard to believe the team pulled off the come-frombehind win but it shows what a team effort can accomplish. “We’re still texting back and forth saying can you imagine we are Canadian champions,” said Furgala. “These girls on this team are an amazing bunch of women.” Kelowna’s Better Than Nature ladies team also competed in the event, taking part in the C tournament.


Quiet offense gives a shutout to Falcons’ opponent The Kelowna Falcons were shutout for the third time this season on Tuesday night in Walla Walla dropping a 6-0 decision to Walla Walla as the Falcons continue to play out the stretch of the West Coast League season.

James Sloan would get the start for the Falcons in a game time decision as scheduled starter Caleb Olson was unavailable. Sloan would last just two innings giving up three runs on three hits and four walks.  The Falcons offense was quiet col-

lecting just two hits during the game. Both coming in the eighth inning as Scotland Church broke up a nohit bid by Sweets starter Curtis Dillman. Nathan Robertson would follow Church with a single, but both runners would stranded.

Karl Myers relieved Sloan in the third and allowed three runs on eight hits over the course of four innings of work. Josh Spence would pitch the final two innings, striking out four. The Falcons (17-33) wrapped up their series with the Sweets (27-22)

Siblings earn separate beach volleyball medals

Kelowna siblings Quinci and Liam Birker spent the August long weeked at Spanish Banks in Vancouver where both would earn provincial beach volleyball titles in their respective divisions. After taking a month off from a successful partnership, Quinci Birker reunited with partner Thana Fayad at the Under-16 beach volleyball provincials and the pair never missed a beat. After winning the first three tournaments they had entered this beach volleyball season, the team took the month of July off to train and compete with other partners. But at the provincials it was like they had never been apart as the pair never lost a set en route to the championship. That’s despite the fact they were actually young enough to compete in the Under-15 category. The duo were hoping to use the U-16 provinfcials as a tune-up for this weekend’s U-15 provinlcials but after winning the mU-16 tournament, they -have decided to withdraw sfrom the U-15 category -and instead go another level higher and challenge gthemselves by competing in the U-17 Beach Provincials. d The provincial win at the U-16 event has qualisfied them for the U-16 gNationals that will be August 23 to 25 at Spanish rBanks in Vancouver. m Meanwhile at the eprovincial Under-18

and Brar teamed up after playing against and with each other in school, club and beach volleyball for the past five years. And the team gelled right away, winning the gold medal after defeating the number one ranked Volleytech team of Logan Mend and Blaire Anderson of Penticton in straight sets. The two had trained and competed together on

“We are proud to have two of our children winning gold medals at the provincial championships in the same year,” said mom Terri. “Furthermore, it’s cool to realize that Quinci’s name will now appear on the same trophy as her older sister Katja, who won bronze when she competed for the U16 Provincial Championships in 2009.”

the Taneda Dojo from Fort St John will join the group and leave together from Kelowna. The team has been preparing during the recent heat wave for the intense competition they will face in Hong Kong. The weather has played a positive roll in preparing the competitors for the climate change. The Taneda Karate Dojo will also have its presence at the Junior Pan American Karate Championships in Columbia, August 26 to 31. Mike Ditson has been selected to be part of the Canadian Coaching team

at the Pan Am championships. Mike a fourth degree black belt, is an instructor with the Taneda Karate Dojo and has worked hard to establish himself as a coaching presence on the national scene. He is a member of the Karate BC Coaching team and has coached athletes at the Canadian Nationals and at the U.S. Open in Las Vegas for the past few years. Ditson has been a student of Karate for more than 27 years and full time instructor for nearly 12 years.

Winning Stanley Cup never gets old for Keith Emanuel Sequeira BLACK PRESS SPORTS

Winning the Stanley Cup is unbelievable, said former Kelowna Rockets player Duncan Keith. It’s the same as when he won it the first time in 2010 against the Philadelphia Flyers. Keith and the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Boston Bruins in six games to clinch the 2013 Stanley Cup. What wasn’t similar is how the two Game 6s on the road played out. “Definitely in the first one a sense of whether the puck went in or not,” he

RUTLAND Rockies player Kayden Thomas is thrown out at first base during the B.C. Bantam AA Baseball Championships, hosted by the Rockies at Edith Gay Park last weekend. The Rockies dropped all four of its games at the 10team event, the closest being a 7-6 decision to Prince George. The Rutland club had entered the event on a positive, having won the Valley of Champions tournament earlier in the summer. But an injury to a top pitcher prior to the event set the tone and the Rockies were never able to get the A game going. Victoria eventually won the tournament.

recalled of Patrick Kane’s heroics, which not many knew beat Philadelphia Flyers goalie Michael Leighton. “This time, it was such a crazy ending that I think really made it special. Being able to celebrate properly right off the bat.” Keith, who is back in Penticton for the off-season, said crazy is the only way to explain what happened in the Stanley Cup-clinching game against the Bruins. “There’s so many highs and lows in playoff hockey,” said Keith, who played with the Rockets in his final season of jun-

ior in 2002-03 after starting his junior career with Penticton for two seasons. “We went through so many highs throughout the playoffs. Game six was just typical of the way the whole playoffs went. We were down the whole game. We could have been down more in the first period if it wasn’t for our goalie (Corey Crawford).” Boston, said Keith, were their toughest opponents in the playoffs. The Bruins sacrificed their bodies blocking shots and played a style the Hawks had yet to see. Keith said the Hawks had their chances, and then they just disappeared. “Whether it was a stick that would get in the way, or a guy diving in front of it, just frustrating in that regard,” he recalled. “I think we did a good job sticking with it. I think it just showed how close those two teams were going to overtime and the length of overtimes both games went.” Having his son along with him for his Stanley Cup win was a highlight of the celebration. “I’m sure he’ll look at that picture maybe later on in life and appreciate it a little more,” said Keith. As for having his day with the Cup, that will be Aug. 31 and Keith intends to start making plans to share the beautiful trophy with Penticton. With it being three years since his first cham-



pionship win, Keith was asked if going through playoff disappointments makes him appreciate the two championship wins more. “Absolutely,” said Keith, who was born in Winnipeg, but also lived in Fort Frances, Ont., before moving to Penticton. “Anybody that’s ever won one, even the guys that go to the final and end up losing it, you realize how long of a grind it is. How good you have to be to win the Cup. I’m just happy I’m part of an organization and a team that will do everything it can to try and win every year.” Keith had a feeling the Hawks had a good team because of the skill the players possessed. Losing to the Phoenix Coyotes the year before was tough. He felt they played hard, but couldn’t solve goalie Mike Smith. The playoff losses lingered in the players’ minds, yet they knew expectations this season were high. Keith said

everyone arrived at training camp following the lockout in great shape. “I saw how fast the team was the first few practices,” said Keith, who has 59 goals and 309 points in 607 NHL regular season games, to go with eight goals and  43 points in 74 playoff tilts. “How high the tempo was. Sure enough we had such a good start (24 games without a loss to set a new NHL record) that eventually I kind of thought we had a really good team. It was just a matter of putting it together in playoffs. Playoffs as everybody knows is a different animal.” With the core the Hawks possess that includes captain Jonathan Toews, Kane and Patrick Sharp, Keith feels they should contend for the Stanley Cup every year. “There are a lot of good teams in the league,” said Keith, listed at sixfoot-one and 200 pounds. “You have to have some luck. Have some things go your way. I think we have a good chance at winning more Stanley Cups.” Before Keith has his day with the Stanley Cup, he will be attending Hockey Canada’s Olympic orientation camp Aug. 25 to 28 in Calgary. “I feel like it’s a privilege just to be invited to this camp,” said Keith.  “I’m going to prepare as best I can to have a good start to the season and show them I deserve to be on that team.”

Ticket dispute administrative solution requires some work


owe an apology to those of you who wait, with bated breath, for every Thursday edition of the Capital News, anxious to read my latest column. For you, the last few weeks have been dismal disappointments. My first missed deadline in the 6 1/2 years I’ve written this column was for the June 27 publication.  I actually had it ready to go—just forgot to send it.  The weeks since then have been a comedy of miscommunications between me and the editors. I am confident now we are back on track with this one. Again, my apologies. I also owe a “thank you” to Cathy, a frustrated mother from Greenwood, B.C., who suggested a column topic for this week.  Over those 6 1/2 years of column writing, I could probably count topic requests for me to write about on the fingers of my hands, maybe even one hand. Perhaps I have not been as welcoming of column topic ideas as I could have been. Perhaps folks have been worried that I might send them a bill if I answer their legal question in a column! I won’t, by the way. However, Cathy is trying to help out her sons who have discovered traffic violation convictions on an ICBC printout that could not possibly relate to them.  Her frustration is with the police, who she assumes must have issued tickets without verifying the identities of errant drivers because they could not possibly have been viewing her sons’ identifications. She notes that “trying to sort this out is a nightmare,” although her frustration seemed more with the police than with the system (or lack of system) for sorting out the inevitable errors that will occur in any administrative system. Sorry, Cathy, I’m not going to attack the police on this. Perhaps there is a systemic problem with the way the police verify driver identity when issuing speeding and other traffic violation tickets. But I am ignorant— not “stupid”, just without familiarity—when it comes to the policies and procedures so I won’t comment about things I


Paul Hergott know nothing about. Perhaps a member of the RCMP might write a “letter to the editor” explaining the steps they take, to assist Cathy and other readers? I will, however, attack ICBC and the provincial government about the nightmare you must be facing to sort this out. Please forgive me for this flagrant disregard of “innocent until proven guilty,” but I figure if you have been handed a violation ticket by a police officer you are very likely to be guilty.  Even so, there are clear instructions for disputing the offence. The Internet offers tips and strategies for “getting off,” a phraseology that ought to be saved for a much more pleasurable experience than getting away without paying a speeding ticket. Clear instructions are printed on the ticket. Those instructions are also set out on the ICBC web site, as well as the British Columbia Ministry of Justice web site.  It’s as easy as sending a letter in the mail within 30 days, including a copy of the ticket. What about, as in Cathy’s sons’ situations, the tickets were issued much longer than 30 days ago?  What about the fact

that her sons don’t have copies of the tickets because they were issued to someone else? It is an absolute guarantee that administrative systems will fail, and that whatever the precautions, violation tickets will be improperly issued in the names of innocent people who will not get a copy of the ticket. If ever there was a situation that screamed for an easily followed administrative solution, it is that situation. The ICBC website is completely deficient. The Ministry of Justice site at least provides the procedure for disputing a violation ticket if you missed the 30 day deadline, but includes the requirement: “You must bring a copy of the violation ticket…”  I went to the “horse’s mouth” and looked at the Offence Act (RSBC 1996) Chapter 338. The legislation does not provide for Cathy’s sons’ situation because it requires, when applying for an extension of time, to prove that you had an intention to dispute the ticket within the 30 day deadline, which is impossible if you don’t even know about the ticket until after the deadline has expired (section 16(2.1)). What do the “wrongfully convicted” like Cathy’s sons do?  Pay thousands of dollars to a lawyer to sort out the problem that you had no part in creating? How about we let ICBC or the Ministry of Justice submit a letter to the editor with the solution?

What to look for on food labels W hen was the last time you read and understood your food labels? Buried in the small print, with abbreviations and chemical names only a Stephen Hawking would understand, consumers are left little more enlightened than they were before mandatory labeling. To help unravel the gibberish, here are seven ingredients you should always leave behind: 1. Aspartame If it says Equal or NutraSweet on the box, don’t put it in your cart. It’s a chemical sweetener loaded with phenylalanine, a known neurotoxin which many scientists believe can alter brain function, cause behavioural changes in adults and even mental retardation in growing fetuses when used by mothersto-be. Side effects can also include headaches, seizures, menstrual problems and gastro-intestinal distress. Caution—it’s in virtually all chewing gum. 2. BHA and BHT These two similar chemicals are used to prevent rancidity in oil-containing foods. This seemingly admirable use comes with some serious concerns—they’re known carcinogens, having caused cancer in lab rats, mice and hamsters.

3. Food Colouring It has an ugly side—caramel colouring manufacturing involves the use of industrial solvents Emina and carcinogens. Jasarevic Red dye number 3 is associated with tumour development. Red dye 40 and Yellow 6 are closely associated with aggressive behaviours and impulse control problems in children. I say, stay far away. 4. Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein It’s a chemically created, flavour-enhancing protein substance similar to MSG but with a healthier-sounding name. The problem with HVP is that it contains hidden MSG, so you can still wind up sickening yourself with headaches, migraines, heart irregularities, etc. Autolyzed- or hydrolyzed yeast extract are also part of the MSG family and should be avoided. 5. Parabens These are chemical preservatives most commonly found in cosmetics and beauty products and oddly enough, in many baked goods, like breads, cakes, pies, pastries, cereals and some processed meats. Designed to inhibit mold growth, there’s evidence to suggest that parabens in food contribute to hormone-related problems in women, such as breast cancer and


reduced testosterone levels in men. 6. Partially Hydrogenated Oil and Trans fats These are essentially one and the same. Most people don’t realize that a product can claim “0g trans fat” as long as there is less than 1/2 gram per serving, so if you see it on the label, don’t buy it. It clogs your arteries, raises bad cholesterol and lowers good cholesterol. 7. Nitrites Left unadulterated, meat will start to spoil and look unappetizing quickly. Add a layer of nitrites and the shelf life lengthens significantly. But when humans ingest nitrites, headaches and allergic reactions can occur. Research indicates that a daily habit of nitrite-cured meats can increase risk of cancerous tumours. While carefully reading labels can help you make somewhat better choices, try a simpler approach. Stop buying foods with labels on them and make the switch to whole, natural, organic or local, grower-to-table foods.

He leaves to mourn his loss his loving wife Beryl, one son Derek (Tracey), stepchildren Carol (Brian Malmas) and Jim (Nicola) Stobie, his grandchildren Carlee, Lindsay, Taylor Malmas, Connor Itani and Paton Stobie. Also mourning his loss are his sisters, Nancy (Dick) Minato, Linda (Iaso) Terai, Anne (Kaz) Murata, his brothers Ted (Fran) Itani, Bing Itani and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. The family wish to thank Dr. Eliason, Dr. Hawker and Crystal, the staff at Cottonwoods Short Stay Unit and Sutherland Hills Care Home for their care and compassion during his brief stay.

BASSETT-SMITH, DEREK ANTHONY July 20, 1983 – July 31, 2013

Derek passed away peacefully on the 31st of July 2013 after a 7 year battle with cancer. He leaves behind a loving wife Alicia and beautiful baby girl Lily, his parents John and Joan, brothers Chris and Mike, and many other family members and friends in Canada and New Zealand, all who will miss him dearly. Derek fought his disease bravely and despite the gross unfairness of the challenge he managed to live a full life with a large and loving group of friends and family. He was an example of extreme strength and grace under pressure, and prospered against untenable odds for longer than anyone could have predicted. Derek was a pilot, outdoorsman, and an active and excellent RCMP officer before his illness prevented him from working further. He was supported in his battle and helped by many special people and professionals. His family wishes to express their most sincere gratitude and admiration to the RCMP and Dr. Verster for the incredible support they provided. Derek will be missed by many but most of all by his wonderful young family. A public service will be held at the Coast Capri Hotel in Kelowna on August 17th, 2013 at 3pm and is open to all who knew Derek and would like to attend.

He is gone, but never forgotten.

Westbank First Nation gears up for 2013 election Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Westbank First Nation members will decide who will represent them for the next three years when they go to the polls Aug. 30. The current council is made up of Chief Robert Louie and councillors Mike De Guevara, Lorrie Hogaboam, Chris Derickson and Mic Werstuik.

Louie and one other candidate, Roxanne Lindley, are running for chief, while 12 candidates are vying for the four councillor positions. Fernanda Alexander, Rose Caldwell, Hailey Angelina Causton, Mike De Guevara, Corinne Derickson, Chris Derickson, Brian Eli, Janine Lott, Robert Keith Sr. Swite, Will Swite, Sara Tronson and Mic Wer-

stuik are the candidates running for council. Hogaboam is not running in this year’s election; therefore, there will be at least one new face on council. Incumbent chief Louie didn’t initially think he would be running in the 2013 WFN election; however, he changed his mind due to some unfinished business. “I guess there are two

real main projects that we have—two main reasons that I believe my involvement will be helpful to WFN,” said Louie. The first is the proposed private hospital that Louie recently announced will begin construction in October. Louie has been involved with the project since its inception and said the project needs “a clear leader” who is intimately involved with the vision. A second key issue for Louie is the land additions owed to WFN from the province as part of the Westside Road Interchange Project. Originally the province considered exchanging 698 acres of Crown Land in Rose Valley; however, it backed away from that option after considerable pushback from the public and the District of West Kelowna. “This land selection has taken a long time. There are issues there with the province to iron out—it’s a major thing. “I believe that it’s

such a significant issue that I want to see its way through to completion.” Louie is optimistic the land exchange will be resolved with the region’s new MLA, Premier Christy Clark. “We have sat down with the premier; we have a commitment from the premier to do regular meetings—I think that’s a good sign. “I think she fully expects that we’re going to be down to some serious discussions that will require her direct involvement. I’m, quite frankly, looking forward to that.” Regardless of whom WFN members choose to

elect, Louie said the next council will have a series of complex issues to deal with. “I think our membership are very astute. They analyze all the candidates and I’m sure (they) will do what’s required and (elect) those who can really handle the job.” Members are eligible to vote if they are 18 years old, are listed on the membership roll and are included on the electors’ list.

Special anniversary for real estate sales firm


ugust 1 marked the 30th anniversary since Re/Max opened its first franchise in B.C., headquartered in Kelowna. The franchise was started by Bob Cherot, who was also the master franchise owner for Re/Max Western Canada, also based in Kelowna. Re/Max Kelowna has changed ownership three times over the past 30 years, past owners including Jim Hammond, Rick Baker and present owner Cliff Shillington since 2005. Shillington joined Re/Max in 1985 opening his first office the following year in Saskatoon before joining the corporate team in


Maxine DeHart 1990 in Kelowna. He was transferred to Denver to run the international operations for Re/Max and returned in 2005 when he purchased the franchise. Besides being the number one market leader in Kelowna, it is ranked the 12th largest office of over 6,400 offices in the entire Re/Max network, having 120 real estate representatives and nine property managers working from

Fundraisers planned in teenager’s memory The Mavazi Apparel shop in downtown Kelowna will donate a portion of the shop’s sales this month to the Club 180 Youth Centre and organize a silent auction to raise additional donations as well. Amanda Zais, owner of Mavazi Apparel, said her efforts are in recognition of one of her staff, 17-year-old Marissa Ginter, who died last weekend after ingesting tainted ecstasy. Zais is hoping to gain as many silent auction items as possible from local businesses. This could be one of the biggest online silent auctions in our community if marketed properly, she noted. “I hope to take this unfortunate situation and make it into something positive.” For more information about the silent auction, got to Facebook Event, https://www.facebook. com/events/375862185850740/?ref=3 Amanda Zais can also be contacted at Mavazi Apparel, 778-484-5896, or at her store, located at 12-565 Bernard Ave.

Call 250-7175000;     It is with mixed emotions that I pass on the pending retirement on Aug. 30 of Don Shafer, vice-president and regional manager of interior operations for Bell Media Inc. (Astral Media). Shafer has been in the broadcasting industry, including radio and TV, for 50 years. He started when he was in high school and has held every position imaginable in the industry. While he may be retiring from broadcasting, Shafer has some great ideas for his future and doesn’t plan to leave Kelowna. One of those ideas is help advance the cause for non-profits in B.C. Shafer is very well versed in the non-profit section and I think he could be a great entity in this. I personally would like to thank Don for all his support over the years in particular for the Maxine DeHart-United Way, Ramada Hotel DriveThru Breakfast. His company always pulled out all the stops for this major event. I will miss him when I go on the air with Andy and TJ of 101.5 EZE ROCK on Thursday mornings, often saying: “Don are you listening…are we going to get fired?” Ha! After 11 years as office administrator with the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, Marilyn Hedman is retiring.


CLIFF Shillington, joined here by office receptionists Kathy Grover (right) and Shayna Diggens, is the franchise

owner for Re/Max Western Canada, which is based out of Kelowna. It is the 12th largest office in the Re/Max franchise network. Marilyn formerly worked for Telus for 24 years before joining the foundation. In retirement, she is certainly going to golf, golf, golf, and perhaps help her hubby Jim do some of the housework, as he has been the main housekeeper since his retirement. Kevin Lee is the new CEO of the Canadian Home Builders Association. A professional engineer, Lee has worked in the housing industry for 25 years with experience in both the public and private sectors. Before joining the CHBA he served as the director of housing division in the Office of Energy Efficiency at Natural Resources Canada. The CHBA annual general meeting is Sept. 26 at The Harvest Golf Club. The guest speaker will be CHBA national president Deep Shergill. Not only is Shu-Han Lin a Red Seal Chef, he

is also a lovely gentleman to meet. Han, as he calls himself, has started Han’s on Kitchen— Ultimate Asian Street Food. He is a member of the Okanagan Chefs Association and previously worked at Local Lounge and Grill in Summerland, training under wellknown chef Paul Cicconi. Working out of a licensed commercial kitchen at the French Cultural Centre on Bernard, he has started a unique business. You can pick-up and take-out or he will delivery lunch from Tuesday to Friday. It’s perfect for a business downtown, working or group lunch or just for you. Everything he creates is from scratch, using local organic products only from our area.

This type of business usually


dies when the taxpayer dies. The disadvantage with this type of business is that your accounting bill will usually be quite high. This type of business does not require any legal intervention to start up except those required by the banks. The banks will require that you register your company name and that you operate with a business license before they will open a business bank account for you. The opposite approach is when people get some business training, develop a business plan and learn how to do their own bookkeeping either on a spreadsheet or using a computer program such as Simply, Quickbooks, AccountEdge. These people may also be operating as sole proprietors, so they will experience the same kinds of tax liability. But because their records are in order when they are brought into the accountant’s office, the tax bill may be less due to the orderly record keeping. If the accountant is registered as

an efiler, they will still need to see all the back up documents to comply with the rules for efiling tax returns. Or, two sole proprietors can get together and form a partnership. This can be a partnership based on a handshake or a registered partnership. Again, the tax consequences are similar to that of a sole proprietor in that the profits are split between the two partners who pay taxes based on their individual tax brackets. Partnerships can be like marriages in that they don’t always work out, so it is a good idea to have some sort of partnership agreement in place in case either party wants to dissolve the partnership. The final type of business is the corporation. If you see Limited, Ltd., Incorporated, Inc., Corporation or Corp. after a company’s name, that means it is a corporation. For tax purposes, the corporation is looked upon as a separate person. There are special tax rates for corporations. If the corporation qualifies as a Canadian Controlled Private Corporation which operates an ac-

tive business in Canada, the company may qualify for the small business deduction. Setting up an incorporated company with the correct share structure to provide for the future can be quite challenging, which is why it is a good idea to get the advice of an accountant and a lawyer when setting up your corporation. There are many tax strategies that may be available. The accounting bill will be more for this type of business due to the complexity of the tax return and the requirement for financial statements. The federal rate for a small incorporated business that qualifies for the small business deduction is 11 per cent. The B.C. small business deduction is 2.5 per cent so the combined rate is 13.5 per cent, which is lower than the lowest combined personal tax rate of 20.6 per cent.

WEST 83 KELOWNA serving our community 1930 to 2013


KELOWNA Fusion ball club are the 2013 SPN Slo-Pitch National Champions, defeating the odds, injuries and tough opponents.

A22 ENTERTAINMENT A BLAST from the past, Honeymoon Suite is at Penticton’s Peach Festival playing the music that had them opening for such bands as ZZ Top, Journey, Starship and Saga in the mid1980s.

A16 BUSINESS RE/MAX celebrates its 30th anniversary. The Kelowna-based company now has 6,400 offices, with 120 real estate agents in Kelowna.


Ground will be broken on Canada’s first-of-itskind private hospital in two months. Referring to the facility as Okanagan Integrated Medical Centre, Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie said construction on the estimated $125-million luxury hospital will take 26 months; therefore, the medical centre will likely open in late 2015 or early 2016. “All the work is being done to get this medical centre up and running,” said Louie. “We have a lot of partnerships—close to several hundred millions of dollars at stake here.” The proposed 100bed, 200,000 square-foot private health facility will focus on all medical services except emergency, obstetrics and psychiatric care. The target patients are foreign medical tourists, as well as Canadians who would otherwise leave the country to receive expedited private health care. It will be built northeast of the band office on the south side of Highway 97. “We’re basically meeting daily, around the clock…to get the right people involved so that this goes without flaws,” said Louie. “It’s going to be firstclass when it’s up and running. We’re going to have some of the most professional people in the world involved with this facility…we’re not looking at having mistakes made.” Part of that strategy may involve a partnership with a reputable entity such

as Johns Hopkins Medicine International. Currently, Johns Hopkins Medicine International has branches in five continents, including Medcan Clinic in Toronto, which has more than 30,000 clients and focuses on prevention through early detection of health risks before symptoms occur. Last year, Gary Stephenson—former director of media relations and public affairs—confirmed Johns Hopkins international sector had begun talks with WFN regarding the private facility. Stephanie Desmon, senior media relations representative with John Hopkins Medicine, issued a statement to Capital News Wednesday that indicated those discussions are still in a “preliminary” stage. “Officials from Johns Hopkins Medicine International and their counterparts at Westbank First Nation and Ad Vitam Healthcare Ltd. are in preliminary discussions regarding Lake Okanagan Integrated Wellness Centre in Kelowna, British Columbia. These discussions are ongoing and it is premature to comment on or speculate on the outcome or specifics of these talks. If and when any definitive agreements are signed, appropriate announcements will be made,” stated Desmon. Although an official agreement has yet to be made, Louie said he is confident Johns Hopkins Medicine International will be a part of the project. “I’m anticipating that the formalized agreement will take place, but it’s premature for me to say that it’s been definitively done.


CONSTRUCTION is expected to begin on a first-of-its-kind in Canada private hospital in two months. According to Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie (pictured above), the private facility will take 26 months to build; therefore, an opening date of late 2015 or early 2016 is expected. Everything looks strong for that to happen,” said Louie. Since the plans were announced in April 2012, there has been back and forth debate whether or not the private hospital will be legally challenged. Louie contends self-governance allows WFN to build the centre without provincial interference. Last year Gordon Christie, an associate professor with the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Law, told several media outlets he expects the federal government will step in and challenge the concept in the courts. He did, however, admit this type of facility is treading in untested waters; therefore, it’s impossible to predict the outcome. In an interview last year,

quihalla MP Dan Albas for comment Wednesday; however, he is currently away on vacation. Last year, Albas said he was unaware whether WFN’s plans would violate the Canada Health Act. “To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that a First Nation’s committee has announced a project to this kind of magnitude,” Albas said . Former Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart called the proposal “a bold move” when he learned of the plans last year. “I think the federal government needs to be thoughtful when they’re considering what the impacts are going to be.” Louie said he doesn’t expect the federal gov-

Alan Davidson, an assistant professor of health studies at the University of British Columbia Okanagan, told Capital News he didn’t believe the private facility would violate the Canada Health Act. “The Canada Health Act is really just a vehicle for regulating the funding relationships between the federal governments and the provinces,” Davidson said in April 2012. “It’s not a matter of what’s legal and what’s illegal. The federal government does not have the authority to determine what health care services are lawful or unlawful because health care in Canada is a provincial responsibility— so the Canada Health Act is kind of a red herring.” Capital News attempted to reach Okanagan-Co-

Louie. “I’m not going to say that there won’t be a challenge, but if there is, I think our homework will prevail.” “We see this as being something that’s so positive…that it will just overwhelm any negativity that might revolve around this.” Louie anticipates

that I want to see its way through to completion.” Louie is optimistic the land exchange will be resolved with the region’s new MLA, Premier Christy Clark. “We have sat down with the premier; we have a commitment from the premier to do regular meetings—I think that’s a good sign. “I think she fully expects that we’re going to be down to some serious discussions that will require her direct involvement. I’m, quite frankly, looking forward to that.” Regardless of whom WFN members choose to elect, Louie said the next council will have a series of complex issues to deal with. “I think our membership are very astute.

Go ahead given for WFN partners with arts council downtown upgrades on ‘60 artists in 60 spaces’ ▼ COMMUNITY

The District of West Kelowna has given the green light to the first phase of Brown Road upgrades, as well as seismic upgrades at Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre. In a special council meeting Aug. 2, council awarded a construction contract in the amount of $2.58 million to R&L Excavating for improvements to Brown Road between Main Street and the Gateway Project, located just south of Bering Road. Construction is scheduled to start later this month and be completed in late November. The total project cost is $3.1 million when factoring

in additional expenditures such as placing utilities underground, design, inspection and materials testing. Funding will come from reserves for future expenditures, capital reserves, gas tax community works funding, water, sewer and storm sewer reserves and savings from the Jim Lind Arena renovation project. The Brown Road phase one upgrade will include: Roadway improvements and repaving, creation of designated parking areas, sidewalks and curb and gutter installations, landscaping and irrigation, ornamental street lighting and sewer, storm

The Westbank First Nation Heritage Repository has partnered with the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan in the innovative “60 artists in 60 spaces” exhibition. The 60-space exhibition kicked off Aug. 2 and runs until Sept. 27, featuring 60 artists throughout Kelowna, West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation, Peachland and Lake Country. Included within the featured list of artists are 10 to 15 sylix/Okanagan Nation artists and associated artists of extraordinary talents who work in various mediums

throughout Westbank. The following local artists will each have a display set up in the selected local businesses on WFN lands: • Kekuli Cafe—featured artist: Gayle Liman • RBC, Okanagan Lake Shopping Centre— featured artist: Sherry Hamilton • RBC, Westbank branch—featured artists: Coralee Miller, Will Swite, Marsha King • WFN Heritage Repository—various artists • WFN Community Services Building—featured artists: Jordan Coble and Julia Buck

• Two Eagles Golf Course—featured artist: Kyla Shields • TD Canada Trust, Okanagan Shopping Centre—featured artists: Janine Lott, Nathan and Nicole Wilson. “Stepping outside of the traditional viewing spaces is what truly makes the exhibition unique,” said Tracy Satin, heritage officer and curator for Westbank First Nation. “The exhibition allows the public an opportunity to experience different forms of art in unexpected places, such as banks, cafes, golf courses, offices, storefronts, street

sides and parks.” WFN will also be hosting a wrap-up celebration on Sept. 28 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Summerhouse of 19 Okanagan Grill and Bar. The public is encouraged to come by and check out a special exhibition with pieces from a variety of WFN artists.

Positive legal decision on houseboat moorage The District of West Kelowna received notice recently that the Supreme

Court of B.C. has ruled that the municipality was within its legal right to order the removal of moored houseboats from Gellatly Bay in July 2010, and that the houseboat owner breached the provisions of the district’s zoning regulations as well as the district’s licence of occupation over Gellatly Bay. The municipality received the decision from Honourable Madam Justice Beames from the Supreme Court of B.C. in Kelowna on the lengthy civil dispute with one houseboat owner regarding moorage of vessels in West Kelowna. “This news is very, very welcome,” said Mayor Doug Findlater. “My fellow council members

and I heard loud and clear from our residents that we needed to protect and preserve our precious Gellatly Bay and ensure appropriate use of its waters. “West Kelowna residents wanted the informal floating sub-division that we had five years ago removed, and this decision has backed our legal methods for doing so.” While the court decided that temporary moorage is permissible so long as it is tied to active recreational use of the waters fronting West Kelowna, this will not conflict with the municipality’s practical approach to enforcement of the bylaw and licence. Shortly after incorpor-

ation, the new municipality received concerns from residents regarding 13 houseboats mooring in Gellatly Bay. Between February 2009 and October 2009, West Kelowna council worked to create and adopt a W1 Zone—Water Use Recreational to define appropriate uses of waters fronting district property, and in early 2010 worked with Westbank First Nation to develop a Joint Management Agreement for Gellatly Bay and received a Licence of Occupation from the Province of B.C. for Gellatly Bay. The licence entitles the district, as owner of the land abutting a portion of Gellatly Bay, to enforce the uses spelled out in the

W1 Zone. In June and July 2010 the district began enforcement of the W1 zone and the Licence of Occupation, and provided notice to houseboat owners to move their boats and permanent mooring buoys from Gellatly Bay. The validity of the Licence of Occupation and W1 zone were challenged by one houseboat owner soon after the district began enforcement action on all houseboats moored in Gellatly Bay. The District of West Kelowna will now consider if it intends to pursue recovery of legal costs from the defendant.
