Police search for high risk offender

LeRae Haynes photo

Chief Fred Robbins from the Esk’etemc Nation began his presentation at the New Prosperity wrap up of the public hearings in Williams Lake Friday by singing two verses of a chief’s song. Robbins said that for the Esk’ememc people, there is “nothing new about the New Prosperity project,” explaining that the issue is the transmission line corridor proposed by Taseko, which will directly impact sacred burial grounds, traditional pit house areas and prime hunting, fishing and gathering areas.

Vancouver police are asking for the public’s help in finding a 22-year-old Frisco Billyboy, a federal offender charged with sexual assault, robbery and uttering threats, who is wanted Canada-wide for being unlawfully at large after failing to return to his halfway house. Police said Billyboy is considered violent, is a high-risk sexual offender, and has ties to both the Lower Mainland and Williams Lake. Billyboy is described as being Aboriginal, five-foot-two and 145 pounds with green eyes and brown hair. Billyboy has tattoos of ‘West’ on his right forearm and ‘Side’ on his left forearm, and a skull on his upper-right arm. Anyone who sees Billyboy or has information on his whereabouts is asked not to approach him and call 911.

Panel hears closing remarks on New Prosperity LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune The final day of statements and presentations during the federal review panel hearings for the proposed New Prosperity mine project took place on Friday at CJ’s Southwestern Grill. The event began with singers and drummers in a procession along Highway 97, accompanied by RCMP vehicles. After an opening statement by panel chair Bill Ross, the presentations started, beginning with Chief Ann Louie from the Williams Lake Indian Band, Herb Nakada, Ramsey Hart from Mining Watch Canada, Craig Benjamin from Amnesty International and Philip Hochstein from Independent Contractors and Business Association of B.C. Hochstein said he was at the event to voice support for the New Prosperity project. “Wealthcreation projects like this are the backbone of B.C.’s economy,” he said. “This project was a topic in the last provincial election –

there was positive and negative response to it and the ‘positive’ won by thousands of votes.” He also said his industry will help Taseko “protect the environment,” that Gibraltar Mine has had a very positive impact on the area, with more than 90 per cent of its revenue staying “local” and that skilled trades training would be a serious benefit for local workers. Other presenters included Dr. John Meech from Share the Cariboo Chilcotin Resources Society and Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce, who said he is “very disappointed with government agencies for its obfuscation and fence-sitting,” and that there is a desperate need for the economic stimulation New Prosperity Mine would bring. Chief Fred Robbins from the Esk’etemc Nation said that for the Esk’ememc, there is “nothing new about the New Prosperity project,” explaining that the issue is the transmission line corridor proposed by Taseko, which

will directly impact sacred burial grounds, traditional pit house areas and prime hunting, fishing and gathering areas. He explained that one of the reasons Taseko’s proposal was turned down last time is that the federal panel found the mine would have significant adverse impacts on aboriginal rights and titles, a decision he said was applied to both the mine itself and the transmission line corridor. “The panel said that these impacts could not be mitigated or accommodated,” he said, adding that the corridor is as important as the mine. “Without the electrical line, there won’t be much happening at the mine,” he noted. “Why should the new Prosperity project be given a second chance when Taseko only bothered to change the mine proposal and ignore the impacts to the Esk’etemc? “These lands are the foundation of our people, our culture and our creation stories, and how our lands are used should be our decision,” Robbins continued.

“This will not be a one-time impact like Taseko says – it will be an impact every time an Esk’etemc goes out to hunt, to fish, to gather or to pray.” Also on the agenda were Grand Chief Stewart Philip, Chief Bob Chamberlain, Councillor Marilyn Baptiste, members of Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, Dr. Marc Pinkoski, Leonard Doucette, Dennis Christianson, Mayor Kerry Cook, David Richardson from Fish Lake Alliance, Jason Ryll from the Chamber of Commerce, Lorne Doerkson, Patricia Spencer, Ann Nicholson from the Williams Lake chapter of Council of Canadians, Frank Dobbs, Ervin Charleyboy from Tsi Del Del, Jane Wellburn from Friends of the Nemaiah Valley, Karina Brino from the Mining Association of B.C., Dr. Bruce Stadfeld McIvor from Stswecem’c Xgat’tem, Jay Nelson, Tony Pearse and chiefs from Tsilhqot’in National Government, Taseko Mines Ltd, and closing comments by the panel chair.

First Nations leaders from around the region took part in a symbolic walk from Scout Island to CJs Southwestern Grill Friday morning for the final day of public hearings on the New Prosperity mine proposal.

WL traffic monitoring to be stepped up Traffic monitoring will be stepped up in Williams Lake next week as children return to school. Williams Lake RCMP and Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services, with the assistance of Speed Watch, Citizens on Patrol and ICBC will be out working in various locations, targeting school zones

for the week of Sept. 3-6, the RCMP reports. “Safety in our school zones is of paramount importance to all of us, especially those families with children on the way to School,” say Insp. Warren Brown, RCMP officer in charge and Sgt. R. J. Verbree regional commander CaribooChilcotin Traffic Service.

They say discussions have produced a model where there will be a three strikes and you are out style of enforcement. A warning sign will be placed at the beginning of the zone being worked, followed by the speed reader board being operated by speed watch members. Any driver not in compliance with the

CRD investigates medical marijuana zoning options The Cariboo Regional District is investigating zoning regulations to accommodate the growing of medical marijuana. During their regular meeting Friday, Aug. 23, CRD directors asked staff to bring forward a text amendment to the zoning regulations to allow the accessory medical marijuana uses in in-

dustrial zones, reports the CRD. On June 10, the federal government announced a new regulation called the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR). This legislation changes the way marijuana can be legally grown in Canada for medical purposes. The Health Canada’s Marijuana Medi-

cal Access Program (MMAP) which was introduced in 2001, allowed authorized persons to grow marijuana for their own medical purposes in their home. There are currently over 30,000 authorized persons under this program. This program and the authorizations are to expire on March 31, 2014.

school zone speed after these two attempts to slow them down will receive a violation ticket from a uniformed police officer. Police will also be looking for those drivers who insist on using their cell phones while driving, not wearing their seat-belts and

also those drivers not stopping for occupied crosswalks and passing school buses. Fines for these offences range from $109. to $163. Police are requesting the public’s co-operation with safety in schools zones over this next school year.

UBC Indian Chiefs vice-president urges protection of wild salmon Sage Birchwater photo

Sage Birchwater

Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs vicepresident, Bob Chamberlin (left) with Anaham Chief Joe Alphonse at his side talks about the need to protect B.C. wild salmon stocks during a First Nations gathering last week in the Chilcotin.

Special to The Tribune Union of BC Indian Chiefs vice-president, Bob Chamberlin, told a gathering last week in the Chilcotin that the resilient Chilko sockeye salmon face a perilous danger from fish farms on the BC coast. Chamberlin, who is chief of the Kw i k w a s u t ’ i n u x w Haxwa’mis First Nation of northern Vancouver Island and founder of the Wild Salmon Alliance, attended the Tsilhqot’in Nation Gathering Aug. 20 and 21 near Hanceville. He said fish farms in the Broughton Archipelago between Northern Vancouver Island and the main-

land of British Columbia is inundated with fish farms that are spreading diseases like infectious salmon anemia to the wild salmon

stocks. “Infectious salmon anemia is a virus that weakens the hearts of migrating salmon so they can’t make it

back to their spawning grounds,” Chamberlin said. He added that one of the key attributes of the Chilko sockeye is their strong hearts.

DFO steps up river patrols for Fraser sockeye poachers Jeff Nagel Special to The Tribune Fisheries officers have doubled their patrols on the lower Fraser River to battle poachers who are illegally catching threatened sockeye salmon to sell into the black market. All fishing for sockeye has been shut down in response to a low run size and dangerously high river temperatures to ensure as many of the salmon get upriver to spawn as possible. But Department of Fisheries and Oceans area director Herb Redekopp said the “fullout conservation closure” hasn’t deterred illegal fishing on the river. “Last night we ran into another group of poachers,” he said Friday, adding officers made arrests and

seized illegally caught salmon, gear and a boat. “That’s happened nightly in numerous groups and in different areas of the river.” He said eight vessels had been seized as of Friday, along with 50 nets and 27 investigations are in progress that have or are expected to result in charges under the Fisheries Act. The most intense illegal fishing is happening between Surrey and Spuzzum, in various hot spots around Agassiz, Chilliwack and the Fraser Canyon. He said poaching can be particularly lethal at the canyon, where salmon heading upriver use backeddies to rest and an illegal net dropped in can quickly pull up a full set. Redekopp said DFO is using night vision

imaging, remote cameras, helicopters and other aircraft to detect probable poachers for interception on the ground. “We’re using every bit of technology available to us as well as intelligence that we’re gathering from the public.” No commercial or recreational fishing for sockeye has been allowed this year. Pent-up demand for sockeye has driven prices up and prompted much more illegal fishing than in past years, he said. “There’s a huge illegal marketplace for black market salmon.” Fishermen are getting about $20 a fish, Redekopp said, and some buyers are paying up to $50 each. Some of the fish being sold now may have been caught in aborigi-

nal food fisheries that were legally conducted earlier in the summer but are not authorized for sale. Redekopp said many poachers busted on the river appear to have long criminal histories and may be fishing as a source of easy money to feed drug addictions. The maximum penalty for illegal fishing is a $100,000 fine, along with forfeiture of gear, vessel or vehicle, and up to two years in jail. Repeat offenders do sometimes get jail time, Redekopp said. He said officers are also targeting people who buy illegally caught sockeye. Fish sold out of the back of a truck or doorto-door are almost certainly poached, he said, adding people should buy from a recognized commercial outlet.

He said Chilko smolts making their way to the ocean, have to pass the Broughton Archipelago fish farms. Despite attempts by the

fish farm regulators to place the pens where they can be flushed by tidal waters, the small fish are helpless to swim against the tidal flows and are often swept right into contaminated waters. In his effort to lobby against the proliferation of fish farms, Chamberlin says he is continually faced with the deafness of government. He said one measure of his success is that the provincial government hasn’t allowed the number of fish farms to expand in recent years. He said other countries are putting the brakes on fish farming. “I’ve been to Norway four or five times and they now ban fish farms in the national fjords.”

Chamberlin says his people of the Kw i k w a s u t ’ i n u x w Haxwa’mis First Nation at Gilford Island are fish eaters and clam diggers. He has worked tirelessly to bring the First Nations together to preserve the wild salmon stocks. “The Fraser River First Nations are very receptive to supporting the Wild Salmon Alliance. There are a lot of impacts like global warming, fish farms and habitat degradation affecting our fish.” Chamberlin asked, “What can we do differently to save wild salmon?” Then he answered his own question: “We can continue to bring First Nations together.”

A new 10-foot by 20-foot billboard has been strategically placed on the Sea-to-Sky Highway 10-kilometres south of Squamish in an effort to promote mountain biking tourism in the Cariboo.

Billboard to promote local mountain biking Mountain biking in the Cariboo is front and centre on a billboard located at Britannia Beach, 10 kilometres south of Squamish, reports Cariboo Regional District media representative Shelly Burich. Strategically placed in the Lower MainlandWhistler corridor, this 10-foot by 20-foot billboard is designed to catch the eye of mountain bikers heading to and from Whistler. The billboard was erected this year, on July 29 and will remain up until the end of August, strategically placed to catch B.C. Day long weekend traffic as well as those travelling to and from Whistler’s 10th annual Crankworx Mountain Bike Festival. This event attracts international riders and visitors, who travel this corridor to get to the event. Not only does the billboard feature the sky berms, a visually stunning and extremely fun feature on one of Williams Lake’s more popular trails called Snakes and Ladders, but it is ridden by James Doerfling a local rider who has made a name on the international scene in events such as the Redbull Rampage. It is also no surprise that the photo was taken by local photographer and mountain bike enthusiast, John Wellburn.

The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association administered a grant from Destination BC (formerly Tourism BC) for this prominent advertisement and these funds were matched by the City of Williams Lake and the Cariboo Regional District (CRD). “We see more and more mountain bikers coming to town and that stimulates our economy,” states Williams Lake’s Mayor Kerry Cook. “It is important to support endeavours that bring people to the Cariboo.” “The Cariboo has long been known in the mountain biking community as a premiere destination and we want to let everyone else know what we have to offer,” says CRD Central Cariboo Co-Chair Joan Sorley. “We take every opportunity to work with our partners to promote the important resource that we have to share.” The Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium (CMBC) has been working with the CRD and the City of Williams Lake for a number of years to market the Cariboo as a mustride region with easy access to an extensive and diverse trail network. “Not only are we seeing countless new faces on the trails,” says Justin Calof, Executive Director of the Consortium, “but we are seeing

people returning to discover more of what this region has to offer.” Williams Lake has been receiving provincial, national and international attention as a mountain biking destination. The Peel Out and Pedal by the Puddle have been successful at

drawing out-of-town riders as has the reopening of Snakes and Ladders. This summer, the Cariboo was the chosen destination for Mountain Biking BC’s 7-Day Giveaway 2013 contest. Riders from around the globe entered to win this contest which helped in build-

ing the reputation of riding in the region. Ride the Cariboo is the buzz in the mountain bike community, and the Britannia Beach Billboard reinforces the notion that Williams Lake is a must ride destination and the Shangri-La of mountain biking.

NEWS Gavin Lake accessible trail officially opens Gavin Lake, is the latest community in the Cariboo Chilcotin to develop a wheelchair accessible wilderness trail, reports the Cariboo Regional District. It’s called the Gavin Lakeshore Trail and was built in partnership between the Cariboo Regional District (CRD); the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development; Northern Development Initiative Trust; the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition, and the Gavin Lake Forest Education Society (GLFES). Ongoing management of the site will be provided by the Gavin Lake Forest Education Society. “The Cariboo Regional District is to be applauded for making accessible trails a priority. For people with mobility issues, providing accessibility is more than just creating smoother pathways. It’s about opening up opportunities to participate more fully in life. It’s wonderful to see this accessible trail project come together so close to my home in B.C.,” said Coralee Oakes, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. “Its completion represents one of approximately 14 accessible trail upgrades in the Cariboo region that we were pleased to support with a grant of $401,250 through the Community Recreation Program.” From the $401,250 Community Recreation Program grant awarded to Cariboo Regional District for the accessible trail upgrade projects, $26,500 was dedicated to Gavin Lakeshore Trail. “I am extremely pleased that we have now completed the Gavin Lakeshore Trail,” stated CRD Electoral Area F Director, Joan Sorley. “This is the next step in making the Cariboo Chilcotin one of the most attractive wheelchair accessible tourism destinations in the world. Projects such as the Gavin Lakeshore Trail show what can be

accomplished through regional collaboration and commitment to improving the quality of life for residents and visitors of all abilities.” The wheelchair friendly trail is approximately 365 metres long, but options to expand the trail by another 31 metres will be completed by the end of 2013. The trail consists of an accessible boardwalk traversing through wetland along the shores of Gavin Lake, picturesque viewpoints, and an accessible bridge that crosses over Gavin Creek where it flows into Gavin Lake. Accessible washrooms and benches have been placed in convenient locations along the route. “The official trail opening is the completion of a vision that started over two years ago,” stated Gavin Lake Forest Education Society Chair, John Stace-Smith. “It will allow many more people from the adjacent communities to enjoy the beauty of Gavin Lake and take in the outdoor experience in a self-guided, safe and enjoyable way. The trail construction has involved many volunteers and tremendous support from all sectors:  governments, agencies, academia, corporations, individuals and the GLFES board itself. ” “Northern Development is proud to have provided financial support for this project through our Community Halls and Recreation Facilities program,” said Northern Development Initiative Trust CEO Janine North. “The development of these wheelchair accessible wilderness

It is an excellent example of what can be accomplished when you have champions willing to roll up their sleeves and get the job done, supported by partnerships that demonstrate cooperation and collaboration.  Projects such as the Gavin Lake Trail improve our communities by making our countryside accessible to all, and enhance the visitor experience in the Cariboo Chilcotin.” The $30-million Community Recreation Program was developed to address the unique challenges faced by communities in the Province with respect to meeting their recreational infrastructure needs. The program invests

in local government capital projects that make communities healthier, more active places in which to live. Through the duration of the program, the B.C. government provided grants for 98 recreation projects throughout B.C. – to help fund everything from bike paths, trails, fitness facilities and walkways to playgrounds and recreation centres. The CRD Board passed a resolution in 2006 to work towards developing the Cariboo Chilcotin as a world leader in accessible outdoor recreation and tap into niche tourism markets for persons of low mobility. Other wheelchair accessible sites within the CRD include Tatlayoko, Kersley, Cottonwood Historic Site, 108 Mile/Sepa Lakes, Lac La Hache and the Horsefly Salmon Spawning Trails. There are currently 12 other accessible wilderness trails being developed by the CRD, some of which were funded through the Community Recreation Program.

Two steps left in review

Join us for seniors open house


here is a public information meeting this Wednesday, at city hall from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. where we can learn all about the planned Johnson Street/10th Avenue upgrades. If I have it right, the upgrades are to accommodate the Ministry of Transportation’s plans to move the Highway 97 and Carson Drive intersection up the road to cross at Toop and 11th Avenue. I’m curious to know what this is all about. A n d why is French the  meetConnection ing being Diana French held now w h e n m a n y people are holidaying? What’s the rush? Couldn’t   it wait until September? *** Two steps left in the New Prosperity Mine review process. The panel recommendation, then Prime Minister Harper’s decision. The mainstream media has finally noticed that the issue isn’t First Nations versus everyone else, it’s between people who fear the mine will result in long-lasting damage to the land and water versus those who think the relatively shortterm  benefits  are worth it. The First Nations happen to have the most to lose. The Secretariat, especially the panel members, deserve a medal. I found sitting in on a few sessions as an observer was exhausting. Five weeks of sitting and keeping alert must have been brutal. Whatever they are paid, they all deserve every cent of it.    I thought the Taseko people got a bit tacky at the end and it wasn’t necessary. In their summing up (as reported  in the panel documents) they  accused  First Nations’ leaders of “orchestrating presentations,”   “manufacturing” opposition  to the mine,  resulting in a “distorted” view of reality. Horsefeathers.  For one thing, maybe everyone doesn’t share Taseko’s view of reality. For another, Taseko, too, has done some persuading, dangling visions of Good Times before the eyes of those who want to believe. And don’t tell me the proponents did no orchestrating of presentations. Sauce for the goose, sauce for the gander. Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune.

Our Viewpoint

Reform should proceed Failed NDP leadership candidate Dana Larsen and his group Sensible BC are set to kick off their campaign next month to force a referendum on marijuana policy. Much like the ultimately successful Fight HST petition in 2010, Larsen hopes to use the Recall and Initiative Act to force an end to what he sees as archaic and draconian drug laws. Specifically, Larsen and his group want to prohibit the use of police resources in B.C. to enforce drugs laws aimed at the possession and use of marijuana. Larsen will need to get more than 10 per cent of registered voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts to sign the petition in order to force a province-wide referendum on the issue. He’ll have 90 days to do it, beginning next month. Larsen is no doubt emboldened by the success of the Fight HST campaign, not to mention the

recent move by Washington State to legalize recreational marijuana use there. And the message is clear: Marijuana prohibition does vastly more harm than good. It’s a message that is increasingly finding an audience. An Ipsos poll conducted last year found that 66 per cent of Canadians support the decriminalization of marijuana in small amounts. Twentyfive years ago, that number was just 39 per cent. It’s an encouraging trend. Marijuana prohibition funds organized crime, wastes tax dollars, wastes police resources, and makes the drug easier for young people to obtain. Larsen should be commended for going after an issue that most politicians are too afraid to touch. His message is one that deserves to be heard. - South Delta Leader

n Tuesday, Sept. 3, I’ll be holding a special open house for seniors, together with MP Dick Harris, at my new constituency office in Quesnel. The open house will taking place from 10 a.m. until noon, and my office is located at 644A Front Street. This is MLA a great Musings chance Coralee Oakes for our seniors to come out and discuss the issues that are important to them with their representatives from the federal and provincial governments. I hope many of you will join us! With people leading longer and healthier lives, seniors are one of the fastest growing demographic groups in our province. They have needs which may be quite different from other segments of the population, and it’s important that all levels of government provide services that suit their needs. Whether it’s providing housing assistance, helping seniors live independently in their homes through programs such as Better at Home, or providing a voice for seniors through the appointment of a Seniors’ Advocate, government has an important role to play in meeting the needs of seniors. The Open House for Seniors on September 3 is a great opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas, as well as a chance to get to know your representatives in government. MP Harris and I look forward to getting the chance to meet with all our local seniors that day, answering their questions, and talking about the issues that are important to them. Come on down and join us for the open house — I hope to see you there. Coralee Oakes is the MLA for Cariboo North and is the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

Flow of workers needs to continue Editor: I owe a big apology to all those Canadians that fought in both world wars, that I forgot to mention in my last letter regarding this subject, I gave recognition to the 115,000 Canadians that died fighting to make and keep Canada a free and democratic country in both of these wars but forgot to mention the great number that also made sacrifices for those of us that today call Canada our home. All the things that we today take

for granted, even the right to criticize our government, was freely given to us by the sacrifices made by these dedicated Canadians. I would like to, at this time, formally recognize that in the First World War more than 600,000 Canadians and in the Second World War another one million Canadians’ sacrificed all that they had, some coming home terribly maimed suffering greatly for the rest of their lives with their injuries. This is a debt that we should never forget, raising the question,

who owns Canada? Were these sacrifices made for a few, or were these sacrifices made for all Canadians including those not yet born and those that have come to Canada’s shores to make Canada home. From Vancouver Island to the distant shores of Newfoundland, from the 49th parallel almost to the North Pole, as the song says, this country belongs to you and me. Our brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, mothers and fathers bought and paid for every square inch of

this country with the very blood of their bodies and the spirits of their souls. Mr. Nakada says Canada has no democracy. Certainly Canada’s form of democracy has flaws. Perfection comes as we each work to understand and contribute to the ever evolving process. There are those who think Canada should reduce the number of immigrants into the county, or limit where they come from. Others say immigrants take jobs away. Canada needs a substantial flow of people coming into this coun-

try to replace the retiring millions that are no longer paying taxes as workers, it is these collected taxes that helps pay for much of Canada’s social programs that so many Canadians are dependent on. A growing country needs continued economic development and progressive industries to support the ever growing number of Canadians that depend upon the government for their very survival.   Doug Wilson Williams Lake

Science of mine hearings certainly tells story Editor: In her letter to the panel conducting hearings into New Prosperity Mine, MLA Donna Barnett characterizes many of us opposed to this make work project as “lobbyists opposed to everything.” As a research based organization, Friends of the Nemaiah Valley (FONV) is prepared to support thoughtful developments that respect Aboriginal values,

protect the environment, and provide economic benefit to B.C. Ms. Barnett also says that “science” should be the guiding factor in resource-based industry decision making. We agree with this. Unfortunately Ms. Barnett either does not understand the science that has been presented at the technical hearings, or chooses to ignore the conclusions it has presented to the panel from highly trained scientists working for Fisheries and Oceans, Envi-

ronment Canada, Natural Resources Canada, The Provincial Ministry of Energy and Mines, and from independent fisheries and water quality experts hired by the Tsilhqot’in National Government. All have concluded that water quality cannot be maintained and that Taseko’s system is either unlikely to or cannot work as designed. She seems unaware, or doesn’t care, that independent reports

by Dr. Sue Senger, representing the St’at’imc First Nations, and by Wayne McCrory, RPBio., for Friends of the Nemaiah Valley, have stated that the endangered Chilcotin grizzly will be driven to extinction by the mine. The science certainly appears to be unequivocal — this mine must not proceed. We also believe critical examination of the economic and business case for any development should also be part of an assess-

ment, not unthinking acceptance of typically wildly inflated figures put out by a proponent. We also understand that in the end “values” will play a large role, as they must, in any decision. New Prosperity failed to meet any of the tests we would apply to a development of this magnitude. David Williams President Friends of the Nemaiah Valley

Oliver Street Collision holds up traffic Friday

Liz Twan photo

The strip of Oliver Street where Eighth Avenue South intersects at the traffic lights was the scene of a multi-vehicle incident Friday evening. Other motorists using the road (coming in to Williams Lake) were made to detour through the Boitanio Mall parking lot for a time. At the time of the accident it was raining and the glare of the sun through the rain was extremely bright for anyone traveling toward city-center from the Highway 97 intersection. In this photo the glare from the brilliant sun is glaring from the roof of one of the damaged vehicles. The Williams Lake RCMP, the ambulance service, the Williams Lake Fire Department and numerous first aid and rescue personnel were on hand. There were three police vehicles, a rescue vehicle, a fire truck and numerous First Aid and rescue personnel on hand.

Bella Bella’s only school broken into, vandalized The small community of Bella Bella is in disbelief as to why someone would enter the community’s only school, and cause so much damage just days before school was to reopen, said RCMP Cst. Lesley Smith, North District media relations officer.

Smith said RCMP have confirmed that a lone male entered the school at approximately 4 a.m. on Aug. 23 and once inside, the suspect went on a rampage and smashed TV’s, smart boards, computers, interior and exterior windows. Paint was also found

dumped on the floors and computers. 
 “The damage sustained to the school was estimated at $100,000,” Smith said. “The community is in shock and the children are visibly upset over this senseless act of violence.”
The Bella Bella Community

school has been undergoing construction (rebuilding) for the past year and was nearing completion. The school houses grades kindergarten to grade 12 and has as many as 170 students and 56 staff members.
 The investigation continues as police are

currently viewing the school’s video surveillance system in hopes of identifying the person responsible. RCMP are asking anyone with information pertaining to this crime, to please contact the Bella Bella RCMP at (250) 9572388.

The attack on the school occurred just weeks after a major fire on July 12 destroyed the local store and other businesses. RCMP confirmed earlier that the July 12 structure fire was set by three young girls ages 13, 15 and 16, all from the commu-

nity who were arrested within hours of the initial fire. RCMP and fire investigators will forward a report of their findings to the crown for their review, in order to determine whether charges against the girls are appropriate.

Road and sewer work to continue on South Lakeside Road sub-excavation and the installation of storm water systems continued this week on the South Lakeside Drive upgrading project in Williams Lake. Sub-excavation is the removal and replacement of the road base material explains the Friday, Sept. 23 press release from the city. Next week’s work schedule includes paving from Hodgson Road to the Hub City auction on Sunday, Aug. 25 (weather permitting), as well as further road sub-excavation east of Hub City Auctions. Installation of the drainage system in the south ditch will be completed. The public is reminded that the portion of South Lakeside Drive between the Cariboo Adventist Academy and Hodgson Road is a con-

struction area, and rough patches of road are to be expected. The contractor is regularly working on grading and repairing rough areas, but patience is requested because the high volume of traffic causes road condition to deteriorate quickly. Motorists are also reminded to obey the posted 30 km/h speed limit. Traffic flow will be single-lane alternating. South Lakeside Drive will be repaved from Hodgson Road to the Cariboo Adventist Academy. The merge lane from Hodgson Road will be extended to Pioneer Drive, and a pedestrian/bike lane will be added from Hodgson Road to the Cariboo Adventist Academy. Work on the project is expected to continue through September.

Police report: Aug. 26 Vehicles stolen Police responded to a report of vehicles stolen from and damaged at Hy Test Timber/Newco Logging at 12:03 p.m. Aug. 25. The subsequent investigation revealed   three vehicles were stolen and four were broken into. The vehicles were all parked in the area of Marwick Dr. and were taken between the hours of 2:30 p.m. Aug. 24 and 5 a.m. Aug. 25. The three stolen vehicles are described as 1.) 2004 F-150 blue pickup, license plate DN6165; 2.) Grey 2008

Dodge Ram Mega cab pickup license plate EN0868, with a tidy tank in the bed; 3.) Greenish brown 2008 Dodge Ram Mega Cab license plate FH8709 with a tidy tank in the bed.  Four other vehicles that were in the parking lot. All had damage to the steering column but nothing stolen from them. The theft and damage to vehicles is under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP or Crimestoppers.disturbances, driving etc., reports John Pilszek, operations support for the Williams Lake RCMP.

Windsor, Beamac win soccer titles Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Cole Roberts scored twice and added an assist to help propel Windsor Plywood to its second consecutive Williams Lake Soccer League playoff championship Saturday at the Esler Soccer Complex. In the ladies’ final Chelann Davis found the twine twice for Beamac to boost her club to a 4-1 win over Windsor Plywood. Roberts, who was later named playoff MVP, opened the scoring early in the first half for Windsor, carrying the ball through a disorganized United Carpet defence to put his club up early. United Carpet answered back minutes later when midfielder Sean Glanville was hauled down inside the box and connected for his first of three penalty kicks in the match to tie it at 1-1 heading in to the second half. Windsor’s Nathan Zurak converted on a nice cross from Roberts to open the scoring in the second half, before Glanville, again, evened it up at 2-2. Roberts put Windsor back on top after punching a loose ball past United Carpet keeper George Fraser on a goal-mouth scramble, before Greg Williams scored an unlikely game winner on a misjudged clearing attempt from close to centre. United Carpet would make it interesting, however. With time winding down United Carpet forward Grant Gustafson was fouled near Windsor’s goal line, setting up Glanville’s third penalty kick marker to put United Carpet down a goal. Windsor keeper Aaron Zurak then thwarted off a frantic goalmouth scramble with just minutes remaining to help his club hang on for the victory. Windsor beat Celtic Engineering, 5-1, in Thursday’s semifinal, while United Carpet shutout Williams Lake FC 3-0 in its semifinal contest to advance to Saturday’s final. Curt Levens had the shutout in net for United Carpet. On the ladies’ side Beamac scored four goals in the first half before Windsor found its stride. Davis (2G), Courtney Strom (1G) and Marilyn Mayard (1G) all scored for Beamac, while Katie McMahen added the lone marker for Windsor Plywood. For her efforts Davis was named playoff MVP for Beamac, while Windsor’s MVP went to McMahen.

Lakers sail to slo-pitch league championship Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The Williams Lake Lakers performed what, up until Sunday, had not been achieved during this year’s Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League season. The Lakers beat the Williams Lake Rowdies, 15-11, along with capturing the Williams Lake Slo-Pitch League Year End Tournament ‘A’ division championship and handing the Rowdies their first loss of the season. The win came on the heels of a blockbuster tilt earlier in the day that saw the Rowdies hang on for a 19-18 victory in the quarterfinal. As a result, the Lakers battled past the Rookies to earn their final berth through the back side of the draw. Kyler Hunik (2 HR) and Paul Grinder (1 HR) both had hot bats for the Lakers in the final. The Lakers marched out to an early 6-0 lead and held on for the duration. The Rowdies tied the contest

at 7-7 in the fourth inning before the Lakers scored five runs in the fifth to run away with the contest. In the ‘B’ division final it was the Ball Breakers knocking off the Bears, 18-11, to win their first slopitch title. The ‘C’ division final saw the Brew Jays knock off the Fireballs, 14-9. And in the ‘D’ division it was Beer-OCrats downing the Broke Millionaires, 15-4.

COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK Saturday/Sunday Sept. 7-8 Harvest Fair coming up

Isaac Myers plays fiddle in the talent show that was part of the 22nd Annual Tsilhqot’in Nation Gathering.

Mabel Solomon performs on the accordion during the talent show events. Games such as lahal were also played.

Traditions shared at Tsilhqot’in gathering Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune The 22nd Annual Tsilhqot’in Nation Gathering, hosted Aug. 20-21 by the Yunesit’in community at the Chilcotin River Bridge near Hanceville, attracted hundreds of people from around the region. Tl’etinqox Chief Joe Alphonse, MC of the event, said the focus of the gathering held during the third week of August, is the traditional activities and games of the Tsilhqot’in people. The theme of the gathering this year was salmon. “It’s a busy time of year where people are out berry picking, haying and catching fish, and it’s an opportunity for our members to get together and re-energize,” Alphonse said. There were a number of special guests at the gathering. Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs vice-president Bob Chamberlin spoke about the urgent need to protect wild salmon. Jill Setah recruited a number of volunteers and modeled her unique clothing creations she designed at the Centre for Arts and Technology in Kelowna. Patricia Pruim, a teacher at Yuniset’in School, had community members display their quilts they laboriously sewed in the past year under her watchful instruction. Cecil Grinder, a youth worker and self-styled healer, built a sweat lodge and

bles horseshoe tournaments, archery, children’s games, and various competitions such as running races and a fishing derby. To keep the gathering and the surrounding forest safe,

the Chilcotin Ravens Unit Crew from the BC Forest Service wildfire protection branch were on hand to help out as needed. They even brought along world-famous Smokeythe-Bear as a special delight to the children. An important event on the second day of the gathering was the signing of an historic letter of understanding between the Tsilhqot’in Nation and Interior Health Authority. The signing by the six chiefs of the Tsilhqot’in communities and Rosanna McGregor representing the board of IHA, triggered the beginning of a process that will enable the Tsilhqot’in Nation to formally take over responsibilities for delivering its own health care from the federal government. A dozen people performed in the talent show including 90-year-old Mabel Solomon who played three songs on her accordion. Other performers included nine-year-old Greyson Lebel, who did a clown act telling jokes, musicians Sue and Jim Carlson, Geraldine Charleyboy, Isaac Myers, Helen Myers Haig-Brown, Joyce Quilt, Rich MacDonald, Sage Birchwater, Joyce Cooper and Stanley Stump Sr. A highlight of the gathering was the preparation of great food by the cooks and volunteers.

Draft horses will once again be among the popular star attractions of the upcoming Williams Lake Harvest Fair. The horses will be pulling wagons that will be delivering people from the main exhibition hall at the Stampede Grandstand around the track to the Trail Rider’s Arena. Another popular returning attraction will be Ted Couling who creates wonderful caricature portraits of fair visitors, all included in the main gate fee. In addition to all the popular exhibit entries to see in the Curling Rink and Trail Rider’s arenas the fair includes the Little Britches Rodeo Finals, gymkhana, Harvest Ranch Rodeo, a Chili cookoff sponsored by the Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association, spinning and weaving demonstration as well as 4-H exhibits, plus musical entertainment. The fair is a great way for the whole community to come out and share the hobbies they enjoy be it growing roses, making wine, taking photographs, baking, raising chickens or rabbits, garden produce and more. The list of entry categories is long and offers something for all ages, categories for adults, children, and seniors, Entry catalogues are available at various locations around the city and entertainment.

Lakecity retiree explores adventure writing in first novel Sean Glanville Black Press Williams Lake author Stan Cowie recently published his first fiction novel The Boy, The Man. Cowie was at sea off the coast of West Africa when the idea to write a book popped into his head. “I was working as a fibre-optics technician and was on a tug boat off the coast of Ghana about nine years ago. I was sitting in my bunk on our piece of junk boat bobbing in the ocean when I picked up a pen and paper and started writing,” Cowie said. “If you would have told me the day before that I would write a book I’d of said ‘you’re out of your mind.’” After writing the novel on pencil and paper Cowie threw the book in the corner where it would collect dust for years. “The book just sat there for years until I finally took the time to type it out and then sought out an editor and publisher and so on,” Cowie said. The book is about young James Gordon Cowen who from his quiet farm home in the north of Scotland, dreamed of more than just a life tending sheep. When he’s offered the opportunity to join a Nantucket whaling crew, he signs on to set out for a new life. On the journey, the young boy becomes a man as he experiences the worst the North Sea can throw at him. He also comes to know the meaning of true friendship. On board, he an a new friend dive into life on the high seas, riding out ferocious deep-water storms in pursuit of the whale harvest. From the beautiful shores of Brazil to the mountains of New Caledonia, the crew battles the elements in search of their own goals. Once in America, they find themselves in the middle of Mexican conflict while on a wagon train on the

Stan Cowie with his first novel. Oregon Trail. They try their hands at fur trapping and gold mining as they attempt to secure their share of the frontier’s bounty and do their best to avoid encounters with the dreaded Red Coats. With hope the only thing that keeps them going some days, James and his companion clamber up out of a life of poverty to build new lives for their family in the New

Land. Through it all, their friendship only grows deeper. It’s all put to the test when they make the final push across the Great Divide. In the New World, they find that they must make their own fate. The original book was more than 700 pages but publisher iUniverse was told to cut it down to around 500 pages. The Boy, The Man

is 519 pages so readers should be prepared to give themselves a few weeks to read it. The book is available locally at Save on Foods, The Book Bin and Open Book.It is also available at major outlets Barnes and noble and Chapter. Cowie began working as an apprentice in the shipyards of his native Aberdeen at age 15. Two years later, he began a five year stint in the British Army. In 1967, he immigrated to Canada, where he ended up working in Vernon, B.C. as a lineman with B.C. Hydro. After taking a buyout package from Hydro Cowie was contracted out to places like Florida, California and as far as Egypt. Seven years ago Stan and his wife Louella retired to the Cariboo, buying property at Springhouse. The Cowies keep busy enjoying gardening, riding their two horses, and enjoying

their cats and dogs. Cowie says he was first introduced to the Cariboo while working for B.C Hydro inspecting poles in the northern part of B.C. He and his wife decided to retire here because the Vernon area where they lived was becoming too busy and congested. Cowie says copies of his book have been sent to family and friends in Scotland. “I had some pretty good comments an reports from bak home and these people are blatantly hones with me, if it was no good they’d tell me,” says Cowie who is working on a second novel.

Library scavenger hunt fun for kids Cowboy & Drover


LeRae Haynes

Special to The Tribune

Mattias and Meikel Hagedorn, 5 and Marin Hagedorn, 9, were some of the children who enjoyed a unique treasure hunt at the Cariboo Regional District Library on Friday afternoon, Aug. 23. When asked ‘How many places are there to drop off books at the library?’ they answered ‘two!’ Kids answered questions such as, ‘Do we have comics? Who is the children’s librarian? How many computers are in the library? Can you find a book by Dr. Seuss? How many days do you get when you check out a book?’
