B.C. liquor laws get another look TOM FLETCHER Black Press 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 ensuring 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 restaurant, 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.

NEWS This isn’t camping

Our first RV as a young couple was a tent. It came with a gazillion interlocking poles that had to fit together just so. Setting it up was like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. If we were late arriving at the campsite we had to put it together by flashlight. It was a good thing we were still starry eyed newlyweds or we would never have got through it. Looking back, putting together a tent should be part of premarriage boot camp. If you can get through it without casting wayward glances at the ax or jumping in the car and leaving your significant other stranded in a pile of canvas and poles, then chances are you have what it takes to stick it out together. A few years later we started camping out in the bed of the truck. We would unroll our sleep-

ing bags, look up at the stars and think we had it made. When we got a canopy for the truck we were spoiled. No more rushing for the cab during a downpour or waking up in the morning coated with dew — or frost. And best of all, no interlocking tent poles. When the kids came along we bought our first genuine RV… a 10 foot bumper trailer that weighed as much as our house. With the nose of our pickup truck sniffing the stars we would grind along the backcountry

roads at a breakneck pace of 30 km an hour. No matter how well we packed things or how slow we drove, when we arrived the trailer was in shambles. Cupboard doors had fallen open spilling contents from one end of the trailer to the other. The trailer had an icebox fridge, which means it is was basically an upended cooler with a swing out door. To get water from the holding tank into the sink you had to pump a lever ten hard pulls for every pathetic squirt. The faucet was the size of a sipping straw. You didn’t waste water. We had a propane stove, but only one burner worked and sometimes even that was iffy. I’d flip on the burner and the clicking and hissing noise would go on and on while I frantically tried to light it with a match. I can

remember sending the kids outside for fear of the fumes or an imminent explosion. Come nightfall you folded down the couch and the table to make beds. We had a bathroom that measured two feet square. The toilet, sink and cupboard left approximately three square inches of floor space. In other words, we had landed in the lap of luxury. No more sleeping under a canopy or cooking on the tailgate. No more stumbling through the campground in the middle of the night in search of the toilet facilities. When it rained — and it always rained — we could ignite the singular propane light, gather around the table and play cards. We could stand up without hitting our heads or accidentally dismantling the tent. It was bliss.

Unfortunately, after we moved to our current home camping kind of fizzled out. “Why would we want to go camping when we live in the country?” Darcy would say. “We’re already camping every day, except we have hot water and a television set.” “That’s precisely why it isn’t camping,” I would reply. A couple weeks ago we found ourselves at a dealership checking out the latest in RV’s for some friends. I felt like a cave woman stumbling out from behind a rock and suddenly finding herself in the suburbs. “This unit has a hideaway television in the living room area,” the salesman said, casually pushing a button causing a huge screen to rise up out of a ledge like something out of Star Trek. I’m pretty sure I squealed.

“And of course there’s another television set in the master bedroom as well as in the kids bedroom in the back,” he added, tactfully ignoring my bulging eyes and gaping pie hole. “Of course,” I stammered. Master bedroom? Living room area? Kids’ bedroom…in the back? Then with a deft click of a remote control he lit up a propane fireplace under the island in the kitchen. I was speechless. There were two bathrooms — one at either end — complete with showers, tubs and yes, hot water, all available with a twist of the tap. There was air conditioning and a heated floor. When I discovered the closet in the master bedroom was bigger than the one we had at home I felt myself undergoing an Incredible Hulk-like

metamorphosis. In my case the transformation went from a friendly, supportive friend to a shirt tearing, enraged old geezer. “You call this camping?” I yelled. “This isn’t camping. When we were young, that was camping. We didn’t need three television sets and a fireplace neither. We slept in the box of the truck and we were grateful to be off the damp ground. And ... and ... when we drove to the lake it was uphill, both ways.” When we returned home to our single television set, zero built in fireplaces and lack of closet space, I finally had to admit Darcy was right. We had been camping all along. Shannon McKinnon is a humour columnist from Northern BC. You can catch up on past columns by visiting www. shannonmckinnon.com.

It’s a myth that you must have a bowel movement every day. For some people, 3 times daily is normal. For others, it could be every second or third day. Some people believe that “toxins” will build up if you don’t evacuate your bowels daily. That’s another myth. There has been much information about 3D printers in the media lately. The applications of this new technology is being investigated by medical scientists and one of the first body parts they are trying to produce is a human ear. It’s early days for the medical uses of 3D printing but the future looks very exciting. Medications can have side effects but most cause no problems. Some classes of drugs can affect your sense of balance and that can be a problem especially in the elderly. These drugs include drugs to treat depression, high blood pressure and heart problems, sleep problems and anxiety. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist if you are concerned about the side effect of any drug you are taking. In Wales, back in April, there was a marked increase in the number of cases of measles. Mass vaccinations took place to prevent the spread of this disease. It points out that many parents are not vaccinating their children against measles and other preventable diseases. Immunization really does work!

Spiritual Cancer Spiritual food for thought: The more I want to control something, the chances are that it actually controls me. Let me give you an example from my own life. I remember this one person Joe. Joe and I got along fine until our differences started to appear. We were two strong-headed people who had different ways of doing things. I noticed whenever Joe came to my mind, it was always a negative thought. This negative thought re-enforced itself again and again and resulted in a negative mentality about Joe. This negative mentality then overflowed into my conversations with others about Joe. I eventually moved to another place, whenever he came to my mind, it was a negative thought. Then I heard that Joe died, and my thoughts were still negative whenever he came to my mind. To the degree that I wanted to control Joe, it was controlling me. Joe was dead, why was I allowing the negative thoughts to control me? The problem was not outside of me, rather the problem was within me. I was my own worst enemy. I made my own spiritual cancer. I fed my spiritual cancer, and it controlled me. The cure of this spiritual cancer is the person Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God who entered into the human race by becoming a baby boy (Christmas). He entered our world as beautiful as it is, but at the same time a world that includes all the

PARSONS PEN

BY Father Derrick consequences of sin, namely suffering, pain, alienation, spiritual cancer, pride, alienation, sloth, gossip, lust, gluttony, envy, selfishness and death. Jesus joined us in this beautiful world and even took the consequences of sin upon Himself. He suffered and died on a cross. He forgave his enemies: “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34) Then Jesus turned this ugly condition into something beautiful: He came back to life after He died. Jesus, now, is our way out of our condition of suffering and death (after having died ourselves) and the way into a new condition where there is no suffering, pain, selfishness, or death. Like the hook on a fish line, Jesus has

hooked Himself to all human persons by assuming human flesh. Through his death and Resurrection, He can draw all human persons out of this condition into the new life: the Resurrection of the body. This Resurrection of life is free from all sin, suffering, selfishness, and death. Our own selfishness in all its different forms (pride, sloth, lust, self-pity, self-righteousness, holding grudges, cheating, envy, etc.) is the root of our spiritual cancer. It separates us from others and God. We alienate ourselves from others of our own free will. We will never reach perfect unity while remaining in our selfishness. We need someone to pull us out of this quicksand of selfishness. God through Jesus Christ reaches from outside this quicksand and pulls us and all human persons to freedom of life in the Resurrection from the dead: a new world with no selfishness and its consequences. So, through the grace and help of God, I have been hooked by Jesus Christ and now am slowly coming out of my own selfishness. If I caught myself thinking negatively about Joe, for example, I would counteract it with finding positive thoughts about Joe or praying for him. It is hard to swim against the tide. The healing of spiritual cancer involves baby step by baby step. Steps that eventually lead to the experience of freedom because I can share in seed form the new life of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Fire crews kept busy over long weekend There were a total of 95 lightning-caused wildfires during the August long weekend, the Cariboo Fire Centre Wildfire Management Branch reported Tuesday. They included 22 starts on Thursday evening, 31 on Friday, 22 on Saturday, 10 on Sunday, nine on Monday and one Tuesday. The majority of fires were small spot size — 0.009 hectares — and were quickly put out by firefighting crews, including local contract crews. Airtankers, helicopters and heavy equipment also lent support. The biggest fire, 5.1 hectares near the Willow River east of Quesnel, is in mop-up stage. Seventeen wildfires are currently burning in the CFC: 14 are in initial attack stage, three are in modified response and are being

monitored. No values were at risk as of Tuesday morning. The Central Cariboo/Horsefly-Likely region saw the most action with 30 lightning-caused starts; 100 Mile House saw 27; and Quesnel and Central Cariboo/Williams Lake had 17 each. The Chilcotin was relatively quiet with four starts. “ U n f o r t u n a t e l y, there were also five person-caused wildfires — three in the Central Cariboo/ Horsefly-Likely region and two in 100 Mile House,” the CFC noted in a press release. “The number of lightning storms and the resulting wildfires serve as a reminder that continued vigilance is required in preventing person-caused fires and lets the CFC/ WMB focus its efforts on naturally occurring fires.” Despite the accom-

A Statistics Canada report shows simple marijuana possession cases declined last year, but still dominate B.C. crime statistics. Black Press photo than 2009. The decline in B.C. marijuana cases comes as licensed medical marijuana production increases across North America. Colorado and Washington state voted to legalize sale to adults last year. In July, Elections BC gave approval in principle for a petition drive aimed at decriminalizing marijuana possession in

B.C. Marijuana activist Dana Larsen has formed a group called Sensible B.C., aimed at forcing a change to B.C. law that would prevent police resources from being used against simple possession of marijuana. Sensible B.C. is using the same voter initiative system that forced the repeal of the harmonized sales

tax in B.C. The group will have 90 days starting Sept. 9 to collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered provincial voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts. If that target is met, a province-wide vote would be held on the proposed law. Individuals and groups have until Aug. 12 to register with Elections BC to

and

oppose the initiative by advertising and collecting signatures against the initiative.

2013

Marijuana possession cases still account for 60 per cent of drug violation reports to police in B.C., but the number of cases declined 10 per cent in 2012, according to new figures from Statistics Canada. There were 25,432 police-reported incidents of drug offences in B.C. last year, a 7.4 per cent decline from 2011. Marijuana trafficking cases declined more than 20 per cent to 1,006 incidents, and importation and exportation of marijuana declined by 40 per cent. Marijuana growing cases declined 4.6 per cent, following a 28.6 per cent drop in 2011. Heroin possession cases jumped more than 30 per cent to 500, and heroin trafficking cases rose 37 per cent to 224 incidents in 2012. There were 653 reported cases of possession of methamphetamine (crystal meth), a 20 per cent increase over 2011, and 110 per cent more

B.C. aboriginal progress fragile

B.C. VIEWS TOM FLETCHER

The ceremonies have become common at the B.C. legislature. Government officials and aboriginal leaders gather to celebrate resource sharing agreements that allow economic development in areas that need employment but are hampered by a century of uncertainty and dispute over treaties, or lack thereof. This approach emerged a decade ago with forest agreements. The B.C. Liberal government bought back timber cutting licences from big forest firms and made them available for community forests and aboriginal communities who claimed the areas as their traditional territories. Recently the approach was extended to mining revenues and water licence fees paid by private power developers. These are substantial steps forward for the only province in Canada in treaty limbo. A 2010 sharing deal worth more than $30 million in royalties for the Mount Milligan coppergold mine north of Prince George helped the McLeod Lake Indian Band recover from the pine beetle and forestry slump that devastated its business base. After many years of struggle, Mount Milligan expects to go into production this year.  Another agreement with Kamloopsarea communities shared

revenues from an expanded Afton mine. Perhaps the most ambitious agreement was concluded in March of this year when the government signed a deal with the Tahltan Nation for mining and hydroelectric development in remote northwestern B.C. The deal clears the way for a major extension of the BC Hydro grid to power the Tahltan village of Iskut and also the Red Chris metal mine, opening up the region to other mining and hydro potential as well. To get that deal, the province put up $20 million last year to buy back Shell Can-

ada’s coalbed gas leases in the Klappan region, headwaters of the Nass, Skeena and Stikine Rivers. Those leases had become a target of international protest. Even after these expensive concessions, it would be an error to conclude that all is well between the Tahltan and the province. Stikine MLA Doug Donaldson questioned Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad on this point during the recent legislature session. The Tahltan Central Council was pleased about shared decision-making on resource projects, until they found out that B.C. had

handed the environmental assessment of a new openpit coal mine over to the federal government. The proposed mine is in the Klappan, known around the world as the Sacred Headwaters. Rustad said shared decision-making deals such as the Tahltan agreement do not cover activities of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. Whether the review of that coal mine is federal, provincial or combined, it requires extensive consultation with affected parties. That’s great, but all that goodwill could evaporate

quickly if a coal mine ends up getting a permit despite Tahltan objections. Rustad’s Nechako Lakes constituency is also a focal point for oil and gas pipeline proposals. Donaldson highlighted another problem. Last year the government signed a reconciliation agreement with the Gitanyow First Nation near Terrace, one of many communities struggling to get through the B.C. treaty negotiation process. That agreement included a joint land-use  plan. Then the Environmental Assessment Office asked the Gitanyow for its input

on proposed gas pipelines through its territory, to feed the government’s liquefied natural gas plans. Again, the joint land-use  plan has no provision for pipelines. The Gitanyow hereditary chiefs wrote to the B.C. government in July, threatening to go to court over the pipeline proposal and questioning the value of their hard-won reconciliation agreement. Resource revenue sharing agreements and shared  land-use  plans are well-intentioned and represent real progress. But these situations show how fragile they are.

Where to go, what to do. Champions Soccer Camp starts Aug. 12 Back for its 14th consecutive year the Cariboo Bethel Church and Youth for Christ are teaming up to host the Champions Soccer Camp in Williams Lake. Camp organizer Ryan Penner said the camp is completely free, adding sessions will involve skill development, team play, snack breaks (provided), tournament games, contests, prizes and a short devotional. The camp is for boys and girls 6-12 years old. Players will be divided up into small groups by age and led by qualified coaches. All participants registered in the camp will receive a soccer ball and a camp T-shirt. Penner said running the camp is a completely community-driven effort. “There are a lot of people coming together to make this happen for

the kids,” Penner said. “The Williams Lake business community and church community have always been super generous when it comes to our youth. “It’s a proud moment when this kind of stuff happens.” The camp runs Monday, Aug. 12 to Friday, Aug. 16 from 9:30 a.m. until noon at the Marie Sharpe Elementary School field. The camp is being sponsored by Cariboo Bethel Church, Youth for Christ and Sprucelee Construction Company. On Friday there will be a barbecue for all camp participants.

Canadian National Gold Panning Championships weekend The Canadian National Gold Panning Championships are being held in Barkerville Aug. 10 and 11 to help celebrate Billy Barker’s legendary gold strike with a spirited and friendly competition featuring a huge range of categories for all ages and skill levels.  Presented by Integris Credit Union and Barkerville Historic Town, the Championships feature exciting prizes that will inspire the very best in competition.  This year the person to beat will be two-time winner and Wells local Karen St. John. “Everyone who comes has a great time,”

said James Douglas, Barkerville’s Manager of Visitor Experiences. “Whether you’re an experienced panner or someone who’s never done it before, you’ll find an incredibly supportive atmosphere at the event.” Hosted by Barkerville’s own seven-time World Invitational Gold Panning Champion, Scott Rea, the 2013 Canadian National Gold Panning Championships is a two-day event with categories that include child, adult, seniors, professionals, teams, dash for the dentist (a children’s candy-hunt), scavenger pile (an adult free-forall), grudge match, and King of the Creek (the ultimate contest for bragging rights and a $1000.00 cash prize). Each category has

Unique tourism social media contest getting traction During the first few weeks into a six-week “Name Your Mountain or Lake” social media campaign the numbers look very good. The innovative, engaging online contest is succeeding at drawing attention to the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast’s (CCC) diverse vacation offerings in the target markets of Canada, the U.S., the Netherlands and Germany. The week before the contest started there were 396 people per week talking to and about the CCC Facebook page. As of July 28, that number has ballooned to 2,851 people sharing and engaging in conversations about the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast from the 1.1 million unique views between the 15th and 28th of July. “By engaging with and creating new regional ambassadors, we’re achieving our goal of building a passionate online community for the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. Word-of-mouth is the most powerful marketing tool and social media helps to amplify that,” said CCCTA CEO, Amy Thacker. How it works: Visitors to the contest page http://bit.ly/ NameYourMountain have the opportunity to learn about the contest assets then provide a name and story for one or both of a lake and mountain in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region. They are then directed to the CCCTA Facebook page www. facebook.com/CaribooChilcotinCoast and encouraged to share past experiences or photos and future guests are asked what they would like to experience. Stakeholders across the region reciprocate by answering ques-

And of course, will be thrilled to welcome the winners! One winner will be chosen for the lake and one for the mountain; the winners and a guest will be offered a trip to see the asset they ‘named’. Social media is not just where we share with our friends, it is also where we go for information to support our decisions. “Fifty-two per cent of Facebookers said “that seeing friends’ holiday pictures had inspired them to book a holiday to the same place” (Skyscanner, 2011) “Seventy-five per cent of travellers said their holiday was better because they used reviews to make sure they picked the best place for them” (Phocuswright, 2011) “Ninety-two per cent of people trust recommendations from people they know, 70 per cent trust recommendations from other consumers” (Nielsen, 2012) Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association bases its marketing activities on research and results. If your business depends on or would like to see more visitors, contact

the CCC Marketing Manager, Brad McGuire. Names will not become official names

of the asset but may be used in marketing materials by the sponsors.

Hawkweed – Native and Invasive

It may be beautiful and found in fields all over our region, but, Hawkweed is not just another pretty flower! Throughout B.C. a total of eight native Hawkweed, and 13 invasive species have been recorded. Of the 13 invasive species, one variety has bright orange flowers, while the others have yellow flowers. Generally speaking, the native yellow Hawkweeds can be distinguished from the invasive varieties by checking to see if leaves are present on the stems as most of the invasive species have leafless stems. Hawkweed is an aggressive plant, with an ability to form dense mats which can choke out native and desirable plant communities rapidly. Unfortunately, the Hawkweed infestation is severe within the Cariboo Chilcotin, and as a result, containment areas have been created. Containment is an invasive plant management strategy to prevent large infestations from spreading into uninvested areas. To create a containment area, invasive plant specialists draw an area on a map which surrounds the worst of the infestation. Inside the line, the infestation is extensive and eradication is not possible. Therefore, limited to no treatments will be conducted within the line. Outside the line, the infestation is limited and eradication is possible through active treatments. Here are a few key tips to managing orange and

yellow Hawkweed on your property: Treat small infestations of Hawkweed before they become large! Avoid mowing or cutting Hawkweed. It makes the plant become more aggressive and it will spread further through roots. Hand pull and dig out small infestations, ensuring the entire root is recovered and dispose of plant material in designated bins at your local solid waste management site. Do not compost! Fertilize small infestations with an ammonium sulfate product. Promote healthy landscapes, stressed landscapes encourage weeds. Apply herbicides, where appropriate, to larger infestations. The CRD is dedicated to protecting the region from negative impacts of invasive plants through its invasive plant management program. The program is also available to assist landowners within the region through the Landowner Assistance Program. To learn more about invasive plants in the Cariboo Chilcotin, visit the CRD online at cariboord.bc.ca or call 250-392-3351 or toll free at 1-800-665-1636 and speak with the Invasive Plant Management department.

Canada Post responds to report Canada Post said it is currently conducting an important national discussion with Canadians on the future of postal service in Canada. “With the relentless decline in letter mail resulting in ongoing financial losses at the corporation, fundamental changes are needed to transform the business,” Canada Post noted in a press release. The C.D. Howe Institute report, “How Ottawa Can Deliver a Reformed Canada Post,” provides further reflection on these chal-

lenges and the growing need for change. “With the corporation at an important turning point in its long history, we are seeking all views and opinions on how to best serve Canadians in the future. To date, 36 roundtable sessions have been held in cities and towns across the country with community, business and charity leaders,” the press release said. “Each session has resulted in a healthy discussion about what is needed from Canada Post and what needs to be done to serve Ca-

The report also notes that objectives of the city’s Official Community Plan (OCP) include working to enhance the community as an appealing, interesting, and friendly place to do business, visit, and live. With that in mind the city has developed a Business Façade Improvement Program, and applied for NDIT funding to implement the initiative. The focus of the program will be to support business owners in the downtown and highway commercial areas of the City with building façade improvements.

The West Fraser planer mill project is valued at $5.4 million and home building permits of $1.6 million form the majority of the building permit value. In 2008, the Retirement Concepts care facility, valued at $8.5 million, the fire hall ($4.7 million), and renovations to Safeway ($1.3 million) increased the building permit values to $15.2 million as of June 2008.

Epic coming up Aug. 15 Epic will be the next installment in the movie nights in Boitanio Park set for Thursday, Aug. 15. The movie starts at dusk. The FreshAir Films are brought to the community free of charge by FORTIS B.C. Pre-movie activities start at 7 p.m. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the fun of an old fashioned out-door movie. CCPL to host Family Fun Day Aug. 11 at Bell-E-Acres The Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy are shooting for a hole-in-one on Aug. 11 when they host the first

ever CCPL Family Fun Day at Bell-E-Acres. Bruce Mack, president of the CCPL, said the idea is to get as many parents and children out as possible to take advantage of the day. He added all of Bell-E-Acres will be open to the public for a ‘by donation’ fee. “We’re going to have a lot of stuff for the little kids,” Mack said. “The golf course, the mini golf — everything will be open.” On top of the golfing Mack said there will be putting and chipping contests, a story tent, crafts, face painting, bingo and other activities. “We’ve got some really big prizes, too,”

Mack said, and added Heartland Toyota, Bell-E-Acres and Spectra Power Sports have donated prizes to the event. “There will be a couple of hole-inone prizes. There’s a $10,000 hole-in-one prize and another big prize to be determined from Spectra. There will be lots of prizes for everybody.” Mack said he hopes everyone can come out and enjoy the event and added all of the money raised through donations and a barbecue will go toward CCPL programs. In past years the CCPL has hosted an annual golf tournament at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis

Club called the Literacy Scramble, but this year he said they wanted to do something different. “The Literacy Scramble was a huge commitment,” Mack said. “We thought this year it’ll reach a different audience and get some new families out. “The idea is to reach the people who don’t get out and often don’t have a chance to take advantage of activities for the kids and get the parents and kids having fun together. Anybody can afford it, anybody can come out and have a good time.” The CCPL’S Family Fun Day goes from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Bell-E-Acres.

News Local councils are not fiefdoms

Small town B.C. may be facing a plague of what disgraced former U.S. vice president Spiro Agnew called the nattering nabobs of negativity, or at least that’s what a number of B.C. mayors and their allies would have you believe. The crime these nattering nabobs have committed? Having the temerity to challenge council gospel. In one town the local mayor accused those who opposed plans for a new sewage treatment plant as behaving like bullies, in another the chief administrative officer referred to his critics as “a cancer.” Someone else took issue with a newspaper column critical of the local mayor and inquired through a letter to the editor as to “What are her sources? Are they my neighbours, your neighbours?” Some of it reeks of McCarthyism, some amateur hour. One B.C. mayor went so far as to criticize local citizens for contacting the media and province-wide watchdog groups (including IntegrityBC), while falsely claiming that no one in his administration would ever stoop to such a dastardly deed. Blissfully ignoring the fact that his chief administrative officer was given free rein to attack local ratepayers on CBC Radio. Pick-up many of B.C.’s community newspapers and chances are you’ll see these fights playing out in the letters to the editor section, if not on the front page. Sometimes those same papers find themselves drawn into the brawls through no fault of

their own. Trace the origins of many of these civic street fights and the common denominator seems to be what the Captain said in Cool Hand Luke: “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.” It’s as though “you can’t fight city hall” is giving way to “you can’t criticize city hall” and that’s not a good omen for local democracy. While some town councils are finding innovative ways to engage their citizens online, in town halls, and through creative advertising; others are hiding behind closed doors, barring citizens from critical decisions that effect their community’s future. Something is seriously amiss when Central Saanich meets in camera more often than the City of Toronto. Chances are most local councils across B.C. are in the same boat. And what’s getting decided behind those doors isn’t small potatoes. White Rock ratepayers woke up one morning to learn that their council had decided to purchase the municipality’s water system from the City of Edmonton-owned Epcor, even though the system isn’t for sale and no one is saying what it might cost if Epcor was willing to sell it. The report council based its decision on must be stamped “Top Secret,” because outside of a select few no one else has seen it. Councillors allegedly don’t even have a copy. In a tongue-incheek series of news-

paper columns — 13 Ways To Kill Your Community — Alberta’s Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths wrote: “the seventh of thirteen things that you can do to ensure that your community fails and dies is to refuse to meaningfully cooperate with other organizations, businesses, agencies, boards or communities.” Griffiths could have easily added ratepayers to that list, because election to local office doesn’t come with a blank cheque. Democracy doesn’t end when the polls close. To succeed you need buy-in. And when two out of three voters stayed

at home in the last civic elections, councils should be encouraging citizen involvement instead of trying to snuff it out. Consider that in 2011, Prince George mayor Shari Green was elected by 13 per cent of all registered voters, Kelowna’s mayor Walter Gray by 15 per cent of voters, and Nanaimo’s mayor John Ruttan by 14 per cent. With local elections a little over a year away maybe it’s time to hit pause on the vitriol, because there’s something to be said for civility. In his new book, The Importance of Being Civil: The Struggle for Politi-

cal Decency, McGill University professor John A. Hall explains that civility is the glue that holds society together. In an interview with the Globe and Mail, Hall went on to explain that: “Talking is crucial because, if you talk, you make people more reasonable. Civility on the part of government is absolutely vital.” Hall’s book should be required reading for local councils and every candidate before next year’s local elections.

Save Lives. Respect the Cone Zone.

Worksafe BC and BCAA are promoting driving with care through their new Cone Zone campaign. They want to remind driver’s that people working on road construction sites and other traffic scenes are someone’s mother, father, daughter or son and their family wants them to return home safe at the end of day. Since 2002, 386 workers were injured in Cone Zones. A total of 177 were seriously injured while 12 workers have died as a result of their injuries.

76km a bit much for you?

Split it up with friends and form a relay team. There are absolutely

NO RULES

for the team. Make up your own! Have as few or as many riders as you like. Ride a little or ride a lot.

Three simple acts on your part can save a workers life. 1) Slow down and drive with extreme care near a Cone Zone. 2) Stay alert and minimize distractions (while you drive). 3) Think about every cone as if a human being were standing behind it.

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

SPONSORED BY

When driving through a Cone Zone be sure to follow the tips below. • slow down to posted speed limits • plan your route before you leave and allow for extra travel time • don’t tailgate – leave extra space between your vehicle and the one in front of you • keep your eyes on the road • don’t text or use cell phone • follow signs and flagging directions • know, understand and follow work zone signs • respect roadside workers • keep your cool and be patient • slow down – traffic shifts or lane reductions may appear suddenly For more information on the Cone Zone campaign, visit conezonebc.com.

News Lesson in food safety

Long ago, while trying to relive my childhood I suppose, I was singing in a rock and roll band at my work with others of my age working in the organization who just wanted to get together and “jam.” We would practice after work in the storage room of the recreation centre and it was some good stress management for us. I guess our sound was heard (we called ourselves “Sense Sword” — get it?) and we practiced enough to get listenable and one day we were offered a couple of “gigs” to make music for a few dances that, previously, the organizers had to hire outside bands to do.

CORNER STORIES COLLEEN CROSSLEY

One of the events was a staff dance at the Vancouver Aquarium and it was just amazing to be performing surrounded by all manner of sea life as well as people. I was staying in a hotel for the night and, after the performance, I went back to the room and ordered dessert — some delicious strawberry cheesecake. I ate what I could

and finished it off in the morning before I left on a vacation to Vancouver Island with my young son. We went to Victoria and took in the sights — the fabulous museum, wax displays, the Empress Hotel and everything we could see. I started to feel absolutely horrible about suppertime and, by 7 p.m., I was throwing up and so sick I couldn’t get away from the toilet for a minute. The swimming pool in the hotel required an adult to accompany children who wanted to swim and my son was feeling fine but I couldn’t even do that. So my son was restricted to the room and the TV, as was I,

until we left the next day. I had to stop the car and throw up intermittently all the way home and it wasn’t until I got there that it dawned on me why I was so sick. It was the fabulous cheesecake I had left out of the fridge all night after I played with the band and then finished the next

morning! Probably the most unusual holiday my

son ever had and a “good” lesson in food safety for me!

NEWS

Weekend hay bailing safety You see them dotting the rural landscape in freshly cut, satisfying rows throughout the summer and early fall. To the urban passerby, they are picturesque. But to producers, large bales can turn into life threatening wrecking balls if proper handling procedures aren’t followed. Large, often round, bales began edging out small square varieties back in the 1970s, when the size of farming operations began to make the task of manually tossing thousands of 60 pound square bales back and forth between field and barn less than idyllic. Today large bales are used widely and range from about 800 to 1,500 pounds for the predominant round variety, to between 1,000 to 2,000 pounds for their larger square cousins. But there are some

inherent downsides to these huge bundles. Firstly, their size and weight is unforgiving, ensuring that any improper handling technique could have serious consequences. Secondly, in the case of round bales, they are unstable. Like a wheel rolling down a hill, the utmost care must be taken when handling round bales to ensure they stay put. Glen Blahey is the Agricultural Safety and Health Specialist for the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association. “The majority of injuries occur when bales are being placed onto or removed from transport vehicles, or when an operator is lifting the bales incorrectly, either with improper spearing techniques or lifting the bales beyond their centre of gravity. If a bale falls, it could crush the operator or anyone nearby,” he says.

In March, CASA, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) and Farm Credit Canada (FCC) launched Get with the Plan!, a Canadian Agricultural Safety Week campaign focused on encouraging farmers to develop their own health and safety plans. Blahey says safe bale handling is one piece of the larger safety picture. Bruce Johnson is the Executive Director of the Farm and Ranch Safety and Health Association (FARSHA) and points out when transporting bales, operators should ensure their hauling equipment is capable of handling the load and making sure all bales are secure before transport. In 2013 so far, there have been three media reports of men in Canada being killed while transporting bales and another two of men incurring serious injury.

For more information on safe bale handling contact CASA at info@casa-acsa.ca or FARSHA at farmsafe@farsha.bc.ca, or visit agsafetyweek.ca to learn how to develop a complete farm safety plan. There are four main stages of bale transport, each with their own risks: lifting, loading, transport and unloading. Lifting: Improper lifting can cause vehicles to rollover or bales to roll or fall off of lifting equipment, putting operators or bystanders at risk. • Ensure adequate operating space clear of all bystanders. • When handling bales, the lift capacity on a front end loader or telehandler must be greater than the bale being moved. If not, the vehicle could overturn. • Always use proper

loading systems when lifting with front-end loaders. Buckets should not be used. • Always pierce round bales in the centre of the load. If it’s too low it could rotate forward along the spear pivot point, breaking free from handling equipment and rolling onto anyone in its path. Too high and it could rotate back and crush the operator. • Never lift beyond the centre of gravity of a bale. If a bale is lifted too high, it could roll the vehicle or fall off and crush the operator or bystanders. Loading: Loading too quickly can unsettle already placed loads, creating risks for loaders and bystanders. • Ensure there are no bystanders near the transport vehicle, especially the opposite side of the vehicle being loaded. • Stack bales in a

tight, pyramidal format to provide support during transport. • Do not push bales too hard onto the vehicle. This could cause bales on the opposite side of the vehicle to fall off. • Secure bales with straps in both directions as per regulations across most of Canada to protect motorists while on the road. Transport: Visibility and blind spots can create multiple roadway hazards for both transport drivers and motorists. • Plan your route and be aware of traffic conditions. • Use proper warning lights and consider using a pilot vehicle to help warn motorists of upcoming (especially left) turns. Even with all these measures in place, be cautious. Motorists may not see or recognize your turning lights. For motorists, if you

can’t see a driver’s mirrors, they can’t see you. Unloading: Unloading should be done cautiously to avoid unexpected bale movement. • Select a location for unloading that has even, hard ground with adequate space for maneuvering. • Clear the area of bystanders. • Determine whether the load has shifted during transport. Make adjustments to reduce the risk of bales falling. • Remove all straps carefully and do not begin unloading until the truck driver is clear of the site. • Ensure your unloading equipment is adequate for the weight of the bales and height of the bale stack. • Unload from the top, working down as you go. • Pierce bales carefully so as not to push bales off the opposite side of the vehicle.
