The bottom of Pine Avenue and Spokane Street in downtown Trail was cordoned off to pedestrians and vehicles Monday morning as the fire department continued to investigate an early morning blaze involving three West Trail homes. At approximately 2 a.m. Monday morning, an initial duty crew of two firemen was called to the scene right at the top of Pine, where the avenue turns into Topping Street, confirmed Captain Jason Milne from Kootenay Boundary Regional

Threats escalate in village

Fire Rescue. “When the first truck arrived one structure was completely consumed,” he said. Two houses located on either side of the burning home were already ignited, which prompted a call to increase the number of crews to battle the flames. “We had to extinguish the two homes which was a challenge,” said Milne. By 7 a.m., 32 firefighters from Rossland, Warfield, Trail and Montrose, had the fire under control.

The verbal backlash toward Salmo Mayor Ann Henderson, four councillors and village staff has turned physical and Friday a notice was issued by the village to Salmo and area residents to help identify

the perpetrators. Vandalism to village property has increased and village staff has had tires slashed and “other events,” posing safety concerns and risk of injury, said the mayor. Salmo RCMP have been called to the village hall numerous times

“Although the fire appears to have started in the middle home, the investigation is underway right now,” said Milne, adding, “we are treating this very seriously.” Milne said it is unknown if the middle home, at 1557 Pine Ave., was occupied, however there were no injuries to the occupants of the other two affected homes or to fire crews. The fire caused extensive damage to both homes, the loss of three vehicles on the properties, and the complete destruction of the middle home. in the last month to escort people off the site. “I am tired of the abuse and the bullying,” explained Henderson.“All sorts of thoughts go through your head because we have all been verbally abused and threats have been made.”

A Trail church is serving up its beliefs with a the showing of a documentary that advocates a low-fat whole-food, plantbased diet as a means of combating a number of diseases. The Trail SeventhDay Adventist Church is inviting the community to indulge in a free admission evening, when “Forks Over Knives” will be played and discussion and food samples will follow. The documentary calls on a number of health specialists and researchers who claim that degenerative diseases can be controlled or even reversed by rejecting animal-based and processed food. “We can't control a lot of things in life but we can control what we eat,” said church member Val Egulf. “If we can do our part, we have a far better chance of aging gracefully.” See CHURCH, Page 3

The Salmo RCMP did not respond to questions from the Trail Times by press time. The bitter confrontation from a group of residents towards the mayor began after council opted to tender out the village garbage See COUNCIL, Page 2

Almost 150 union members and supporters showed up outside Fortis BC’s Trail headquarters Friday afternoon in a rally to stand behind the 230 members of the United Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (UBEW) who have been locked out by the company since June. Members from at least half a dozen different union locals joined Kootenay West MLA Katrine Conroy, family members, and civic politicians, in voicing support for the locked out Fortis employees and their disappointment at the breakdown in mediation talks.

Council to curb public time at meeting FROM PAGE 1 contract earlier this year, according to Henderson’s timeline. Council stands by its decision citing it a “cost-saving measure,” but the Salmo Garbage Services, a local business that held the contract for over 20 years, has dug in its heels to question the legality of the decision. The process by which the tender was awarded (in camera) is the crux of the dispute, and has spawned a group of outspoken

residents to attend each council. For the fourth time in the last four meetings, council chambers became the backdrop Aug. 27, to insinuations of village impropriety and harsh words by gallery members, hurled directly at the mayor and council. “For the last three meetings, I have had to start by reading off the expectation of decorum because things were starting to get bad,” said Mayor Henderson. “But the

abuse, accusations and bullying continues to escalate.” Historically, rain or shine, half a dozen residents attend each Salmo council. Time is allotted at the end of each meeting for public discussion pertaining to items on that night’s agenda. Since July, the village hall has been packed to capacity with residents, many who use public time to voice complaints. “I’ve been dealing with this for awhile,” said Henderson. “It’s like Tuesday night has become a social event and now they are suggesting a different venue to accommodate more people. This is our council chambers to conduct business. People are using the meetings to come and do all their complaining but we have other procedures in place to address those concerns.” Although pub-

lic time is meant for attendees to address agenda items, usually financial, last week’s topics veered off course to include queries about backyard roosters, dust at KP Park, the absence of bi-weekly gas receipts (village) and work ethics of the Salmo public works crew. “What is currently happening is counterproductive to any type of progress,” said Coun. Jennifer Peel. “It has become an opportunity to abuse council and their actions, vent unnecessary criticism, demand responses to irrelevant questions and personally attack council. The implication that the things we talk about in camera are sinister and being “hidden” from the public is insulting.” Being inundated with questions and not given time to answer, false accusations and profanity in council meetings is over the

top of public discussion, said Coun. Janine Haughton. “We live in a time of history in which the balance of our planet is in serious jeopardy,” said Haughton. “There are many projects close to home they can sink their teeth into rather than do their best to vilify people who are working extremely hard to effect positive change.” In three terms as mayor, Henderson has not experienced this degree of contemptuous behaviour but is determined to conduct village business with less adversity at council Sept. 10. “My office is open for anyone who wants to come at a time convenient for both of us.” said Henderson. “But the public time is strictly a courtesy and I feel it has been so abused I am cancelling it. The next meeting, there will be no public time.”

August serves up dry, warm weather

REgional

By Sheri Regnier Times Staff

The first four days of August brought the doom and gloom of a cold and wet weather system, but the rest of the month was warmer and drier than usual, said a local forecaster. “The vast majority of rain in August fell in one afternoon,” said Ron Lakeman, forecaster at the Southeast Fire Centre. “Except for thundershowers during the afternoon of the 4th the showers for the remainder of the month were relatively minor.” The only record set in August was during a downpour on the 4th when 13.6 millimetres of rain fell, setting a record maximum amount for that date. The rest of the month was dry with 60 per cent of total rainfall for a typical August. Along with dry conditions, a high pressure system dominated, bringing sunny skies and an overall temperature 1.7 degrees warmer than normal. August 14 was the hottest day at 34.1 C but didn’t near the record high of 40 C, set 46 years ago. The third week of August had the coolest temperature, 8.4 degrees on the 22nd. Lakeman’s forecast includes a heat accumulation measurement, called growing degree days (GDD), which was 112 per cent the norm in August. GDD are used by gardeners, farmers and horticulturists, to predict the date that a flower will bloom or a crop will reach maturity. “This is not used as commonly as in the past but is a benchmark to record average temperatures,” explained Lakeman. “It is another way to say that August was a little warmer than normal.” As the new school year begins today, unsettled systems will bring a chance of thunderstorms and cooler weather, said Lakeman. “There is some debate when the wetter system will arrive,” he said. “But Thursday and Friday have heavy potential for significant amounts of rain.” Next week, a high pressure system is back in the picture bringing warm and drier conditions until mid-month.

Church offers vegetarian cooking classes FROM PAGE 1 The self-proclaimed “flexitarian,” a vegetarian who once in awhile will eat meat, has been an advocate for plant-based diets, helping run vegetarian cooking classes out of the church. She hopes to get this started again in October with her cooking class partner Barbara Ross. “I’m the one that cooks and she’s the one that talks,” explained Egulf. Nutrition is one of the church’s eight natural laws, says Ross, noting exercise, drinking lots of water, getting out in the fresh air, soaking up sunshine, having regular rest, temperance and trusting in the divine power as the remaining. Ross, 65, has been a vegetarian for 30 years, a choice she made when she became acquainted with the church. Though she’s always been in good health, her husband Eric developed heart disease but a change in life-

style in his 50s has led him to maintain his health now into his 80s. The couple continues to walk nearly five kilometres a day. Egulf coins Eric’s as one of the many success stories people share once they make these lifestyle changes, ones that can start at the table. “If you eat things that are going to be best for your system then it’s going to run smoothly,” she said. “Just like a car, if you put oil in it and change the oil regularly, it’s the same with your body.” “Forks Over Knives” will be played at the Trail Seventh-Day Adventist Church, across from Kiro Welness Centre, at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The East Trail church runs its regular service Saturdays with Bible study at 10 a.m., worship at 11 a.m. and a vegetarian meal to follow.

Canvassers will be collecting signatures for a provincewide drive with the goal of a referendum for the decriminalization of cannabis when Sensible BC kicks off a 90-day campaign on Sept. 9. As with the 2011 campaign that led to the repeal of the harmonized sales tax in April, signatures from 10 per cent of eligible voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts are required to have a referendum. Nearly a dozen volunteers are gearing up in the Creston half of the Nelson-Creston riding. With no plans to go door-to-door, they will be setting up tables around town to provide information and gather signatures. “We don’t want to cause trouble,” said local volunteer co-ordinator Marc Archambault. “We want to be respectful.” Sensible BC is a movement started by Dana Larsen, a cannabis legalization activist and founding member of both the Marijuana Party of Canada and the BC Marijuana Party; he resigned from both in 2003 to join the New Democratic Party. The goal of the referendum would be to approve a proposed “sensible policing act”, which would, according to campaign information, “redirect all B.C. police from searching, seizing or arresting adults for simple possession of cannabis. … Under the new law, a minor found in unlawful possession of cannabis would be treated the same as if it were alcohol.” “This campaign is really about not making criminals out of responsible adults,” said Archambault. “Marijuana doesn’t ruin people’s lives, prosecution for possession does. You get people around here who can’t walk dogs for PAWS (Pet Adoption and Welfare Society) because they were charged with possession 20 years ago.” In addition to the lasting impact for an individual, prosecution affects all taxpayers, with $1.3 billion being spent annually on police and court costs, according to the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. Federal polls currently show that support for decriminalization and/or legalization is just under 70 per cent, Archambault said. But even with the support of people like Kash Heed and federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau — “Justin Trudeau really raised the bar on this when he came out as having smoked weed,” said Archambault — people are still leery of the stigma associated with cannabis. “Some people won’t volunteer because they say they’re afraid their employers will subject them to random drug tests,” said Archambault. But the key to change, he said, is letting people know that the campaign is about others, not their own preferences. “You don’t have to use it or even like it,” he said. “This is about not making criminals out of your family and friends.”

Provincial

ICBC applies for rate hike By Tom Fletcher Black Press

ICBC has applied for a 4.9 per cent rate increase to its basic vehicle insurance rates to take effect Nov. 1. For an average driver who now pays $1,369 a year for basic insurance, the increase would add an extra $36. In its rate application to the B.C. Utilities Commission, ICBC is also seeking four per cent decrease in optional coverage that would reduce that annual bill by $25. The last rate increase was 11 per cent in 2012, coupled with a six per cent cut in optional insurance where ICBC competes with private insurers. In an open letter to customers, Mark Blucher, interim CEO of ICBC, says the increase is needed to keep up with increasing bodily

injury claims, with higher payouts as more people turn to lawyers to dispute their insurance payouts. Blucher said injury claim volume is also rising, including crashes involving drivers distracted by smartphones, and more pedestrians and cyclists on roads. ICBC cut 260 positions last year after an audit of its operations showed its management ranks had swelled by 41 per cent between 2007 and 2011. Blucher said ICBC’s administrative costs amount to five cents out of every premium dollar, with 86 cents going to claim payouts. Bodily injury claims, for pain and suffering, future care and loss of wages totalled $1.9 billion in 2012, up $165 million from the previous year and $400 million higher than five years previously.

Cowichan Valley

No school board election until 2014 By Peter Rusland

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial

Cowichan’s nine school-board trustees won’t be elected this November, the education minister announced last week. Instead, our new board will be elected during B.C.’s 2014 civic vote, the minister said. Peter Fassbender, Victoria’s Times Colonist newspaper reported Friday, flipped an earlier ruling by his predecessor, Don McRae, about staging a fall byelection of valley school-board trustees. The board was fired last year

for submitting a promised, illegal budget. School District 79’s board was replaced by provincially appointed trustee Mike McKay, who’s Cowichan High’s former principal and Surrey’s current superintendent. Fassbender said his byelection nixing will save taxpayers about $100,000. Many Cowichanians have applauded McKay’s patient, consultation about closing various Cowichan schools — amid drooping enrolments — while other folks want a locally elected school board.

Tentative agreement reached at YVR THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER Travellers at Vancouver’s airport have been spared from having to dodge picket lines after a tentative agreement averted strike action by nearly 350 unionized workers.

The deal was reached two hours before the strike deadline on Friday at midnight. A wage increase is part of the four-year deal, but details of the agreement between the Public Service Alliance of Canada

and the Vancouver Airport Authority won’t be released until members ratified it. The union represents employees in various jobs including emergency response, customer care and runway maintenance.

Keith shares Stanley Cup with fans By Joe Fries

Penticton Western News

Duncan Keith’s face got quite a workout Saturday as he smiled his way through hundreds of photos with fans in Penticton. “It’s not hurting — I can’t feel it,” he said with a laugh after hosting a community event at Gyro Park, where he put the Stanley Cup on display and spent nearly an hour posing for pictures with the public. The 30-year-old Chicago Blackhawks defenceman won his second cup this June and shared part of his day with the trophy with the community, just as he did in 2010. Summerland teacher Raja Gupta was among the first in line for a photo. “It’s nice that Duncan did offer the time,” Gupta said. “It’s good for the community.” Penticton woman Bonnie Inglis was similarly pleased and happy to have squeezed in a hug on Keith. “I am a die-hard Canucks fan, but this is about the closest we’ll get to see the cup in B.C.,” she said. RCMP Const. Tim Wood was one of two local Mounties lucky enough to suit up in dress uniforms for the public event, at which the City of Penticton proclaimed Duncan Keith Day. “They sent out an email to the whole detachment and I jumped on it when I heard about it, Wood said. “It’s a boyhood dream for any Canadian kid to stand with the Stanley Cup, and to do it with red serge is an honour. Keith moved to the Okanagan with his family as a teenager and played two seasons

He was happy to share the cup with the community. “I think it’s important to give back. Obviously there’s a lot of people who helped me along the way in this town, in this city, and it’s nice for the young kids to get a chance to see (the cup) and talk to them a little bit,” Keith said.

Campbell River

Man fined $10,000 for cutting down eagle tree By Paul Rudan

Campbell River Mirror

A Campbell River man will pay a $10,000 fine for cutting down an eagle tree. Gordon Knight agreed to pay the fine which will go to the Habitat Conservation Trust to be used to rehabilitate injured birds or to improve avian habitant on Northern Vancouver Island. The 63-year-old automotive dealer appeared in provincial court Friday after earlier pleading guilty to destroying a bald eagle’s nest under the Wildlife Act. “Your honour, I take ownership of the tree…I don’t blame anyone else,” he told Judge Brian Saunderson. Knight lives on the Island Highway near Rockland Road and has several old growth trees on his property. One of those Douglas firs had a large eagle’s nest which was registered as an “eagle tree” with local government. Knight knew the eagle’s nest was there and had, at one time, asked a faller for an estimate to fall some trees on the property. The faller informed Knight the eagle tree was registered and was not prepared to cut it down. Then, on Feb. 20, 2012, Knight brought in another faller to get an estimate. Five days later,

the faller returned and cut down the eagle tree while Knight was away home. The downed tree, which contained a large bald eagle’s nest, was reported to the city’s environmental co-ordinator, Terry Martin, who then contacted Conservation Officers. According to federal Crown prosecutor John Blackmon, there’s a “real concern” for the viability of local eagle populations which is why trees with nests are registered for protection. He said the charge of destroying a nest is seldom laid. The last case Blackmon recalled prosecuting was in 2000 and the guilty man paid the maximum fine of $5,000. Since then the maximum penalty has increased to $100,000 and one year in jail. Blackmon noted that Knight’s fine is at the lowend of the spectrum, but is still substantial. The fine was presented as a joint submission by the Crown and the defence to Judge Saunderson who accepted the proposal and gave Knight 18 months to pay. “The fine and the payment is significant and appropriate given the circumstances,” said defence lawyer Brian Dybawd. “The seriousness and the gravity of the situation is not lost on Mr. Knight…it is his hope this raises awareness because of this action.” The long-time car dealer and grandfather never disputed the fact he was responsible for the tree and nest coming down, and said he’s learned a lot. “I had quite the eye-opening experience. Even at my age you can still learn,” said Knight.

Court gets an earful on March a symbol of hope for newest union Senate reform Labour Day

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The Supreme Court of Canada is getting an earful on the future of the Senate. The federal government has asked the high court for guidance on what it would take to reform the upper chamber - and whether it can abolish the body without provincial consultation. The provinces and territories had until Friday afternoon to submit their views on the Senate questions. So far, everyone seems to agree that Ottawa cannot act alone to overhaul or outright abolish the upper chamber. Where they differ is in the details. Saskatchewan and Alberta agreed with the federal government position that all that is needed for abolition is the so-called 7/50 rule - the consent of seven provinces, representing at least half of the population. “Alberta continues to lead Senate reform efforts and our province’s position is that fundamental changes to the federal system requires input from the partners of Confederation,” Premier Alison Redford said in a statement. “But no one province should hold a veto to block important and necessary Senate reform.” Adds Saskatchewan: “Unanimity is not required for any of the proposals identified in the constitutional questions.” Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador, Manitoba, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick counter that the unanimous consent of the provinces is indeed needed to get rid of the Senate. The Northwest Territories says unanimous consent isn’t enough and its residents must be consulted before any changes are made.

British Columbia got an extension and now has another week to file its opinion. Yukon is not weighing in. On the questions of whether Parliament alone can set term limits or hold elections for senators, opinions vary. Alberta argues that while the federal government would have to consult the provinces before setting Senate term limits, it could conceivably change the rules so senators would have to be elected instead of appointed, as they are now. Alberta is the only province to elect nominees for Senate appointments. Ontario says Parliament does not need the provinces’ consent to set term limits of nine years or longer. However, the province says the 7/50 rule would apply if Parliament wants to set Senate term limits of less than nine years. Ontario also says the 7/50 rule comes into play if Parliament wants to change the rules so that senators must be elected. The rest of the provinces and territories generally agree that Ottawa cannot act alone on Senate elections or term limits. The federal Conservatives say they plan to go ahead with Senate reform - or even outright abolition - once the Supreme Court provides guidance over how they may do so.

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Union members flooded the streets of Toronto in a spirited Labour Day celebration emboldened by the birth of the country’s biggest union for private-sector workers. Thousands of workers stretched for more than 12 blocks Monday in a parade peppered with steel drum bands and labour flags and banners from more than a dozen unions. Front and centre in their red union T-shirts were members of Canada’s newest labour group, Unifor, formed this weekend from a merger between the Canadian Auto Workers and Communication, Energy and Paperworkers unions. Unifor national president Jerry Dias called the boisterous march a symbolic start for the group as it launches an ambitious campaign to draw in members from precarious and traditionally

non-union jobs. “Today is really about opportunity, it’s about hope. It’s about us saying we’ve had it and it’s about us saying we’re determined to change the direction of the country,” said Dias. Union membership has declined in recent years, though it saw a slight uptick to 31.5 per cent last year, according to Statistics Canada. The public sector makes up the vast majority of union employees. Dias, a lifelong union member who was endorsed by the former heads of the CAW and CEP, was elected Saturday with about 87 per cent support at Unifor’s founding convention in Toronto. Unifor currently represents some 300,000 workers. NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, who was among a small contingent of New Democrat marchers, said Unifor will

help solidify the base of the Canadian labour movement at a time when middle-class jobs are under attack. “We’ve seen a stabilization in the labour movement after several years of decrease. Stephen Harper is encouraging a lot of people to get back involved in the labour movement,” Mulcair said. “The Conservative party has been pushing down wages and working conditions for women and men across the country” through the expansion of the temporary foreign workers program, while manufacturing job losses are also taking a toll, he said. Marcher Paul Dolgov, an actor, said joining a union has provided him with valuable protection on the job. “The union provides us with a fair working environment. We get nice wages... basically it’s one of the best places to work and we are protected.”

Manitoba

Group seeks national animal abuse registry THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG - A Winnipeg group is compiling a coast-tocoast petition to lay the groundwork for an animal abuse registry. The registry would ensure anyone in Canada with a history of abusing or neglecting an animal would be banned from owning animals in the future. Yvonne Russell,

president of Paw Tipsters, a non-profit organization that works to combat animal abuse, says a registry would limit abusers from getting animals because there would be record across the country. Signatures on paper copies of the Animal Abuse Registry petition are being collected until Sept. 30 -- online petitions are

not accepted. Russell says there are hundreds of people from all across the country helping collect signatures. Winnipeg North MP Kevin Lamoureux said he will review the petition and present it to the House of Commons in the next session. “I’d say the vast majority, 95 per cent plus of people, do not want to see abuse of

animals and would not oppose denying a person the opportunity to have a pet if they’ve got a record of abusing animals.” Lamoureux said. “If we can bring in legislation that would protect animals by having a registry, I think there is great merit for it. At the very least, through the petition,

we will get it debated inside the House. I look forward to receiving it.” Russell has a goal of getting 50,000 signatures. “Why would you be able to own an animal or a pet again after you do something like (abuse or neglect) to an animal? it doesn’t make sense to me.”

closing the area to save $2 million annually, prompting critics to accuse the Conservatives of hacking away at environmental science.

Back to school and labour disputes

A

nother school year dawns in B.C., with the prospect of disruptive labour dis-

putes. First up are 27,000 support staff, in a legal strike position. These are the teacher aides, custodians, bus drivers and crossing guards. Most are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, with a few Teamsters and other locals scattered around the 60 school districts. Public discussion about these disputes usually focuses on wage increases, which CUPE members in schools haven’t seen for four years. Their current deals expired more than a year ago, after they were subject to the same two-year wage freeze imposed on the rest of government. The B.C. government moved from the postrecession wage freeze to a system they call “cooperative gains,” where raises must be financed

by savings in other areas of the operation. Only two provincial employee groups have yet to do this: school support staff and teachers. (Education Minister Peter Fassbender confirmed last week that teacher raises will be funded by extra transfers from the provincial treasury as they try to get a long-term deal. But that’s a topic for another day.) CUPE, the largest union in the country, has a sophisticated media campaign to generate public sympathy. We are repeatedly reminded not only that the last raise was 2009, but that the “average” pay is a mere $24,000 a year. If that number is accurate, it reflects a large number of part-timers. Let’s look at a few provisions CUPE doesn’t talk about, on behalf of those self-employed taxpayers who have no paid holidays, no employer pension or benefits and no paid

overtime, but are expected to help pay all of the above to government workers. The 60 contracts have many variations, but core elements are the same. In the Central Okanagan school district, the starting CUPE wage rate is $17.37 an hour. The top rate is $26.59, or $28.78 for workers who qualify for a “trades adjustment.” All contracts have rigid seniority and “bumping” clauses to ensure that new employees absorb any reductions in working hours. From a taxpayer’s

perspective, this leads to the maximum number of employees making the highest wages. Overtime in Central Okanagan is time and a half for the first two hours, and double time after that. Contracts also include the provision that unscheduled overtime is subject to a four-hour minimum. It’s amazing how often an unexpected hour of work can arise when it’s paid at quadruple time. The Surrey school district contract details how even “spare board” employees are to be enrolled in the municipal pension plan, a definedbenefit system most private-sector employees can only dream about. Then there are paid sick days. The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation reports that the average B.C. private sector worker took 7.4 sick days last year. The public sector average was 12. The Surrey con-

tract details the windfall of unused sick days that must be paid out to employees who retire as early as age 55. The maximum is 150 days, for a lavish perk only available to employees hired before July 1, 1996. Even so, we’ll be paying these bonuses out for years to come. It goes on and on. Six weeks’ paid vacation after 20 years, with an extra day added for every year after that. There are many little things, such as a $60 “swimsuit allowance” for teacher aides who take part in swimming instruction. This is not to devalue the work done by these people. It is to suggest that given the growing gap between public and private employment benefits, finding savings is reasonable.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Political bias evident in column I read with interest your editorial (Big shift in balance of power in new electoral riding, Trail Times, Aug. 29) concerning “balance of power” and realized that you aren’t really arguing against the work of Elections Canada

but in fact what you are saying is you don’t like Harper and his Tory machine. Being an editor of a small newspaper purportedly serving our community, I would suggest you would be up front with your political bias and

stop trying to be an honest commentator. Your newspaper certainly shows its political prejudices and I see that you do also. Dick Hamakawa Fruitvale

change in societal attitudes. Children are taught in school at a young age that the purchase of sex is illegal and unacceptable, in hopes that the next generation will grow up considering prostitution a much more heinous offence than it is considered today. It appears that before the law came into effect, there were nearly 2,500 prostitutes in Sweden.  This figure was cut in half within a year of the law being enacted.  In Stockholm, street prostitution has been reduced by two thirds and the number of purchasers (johns) of sex has decreased by 80%.  The government of Sweden published an evaluation of the law’s first ten years and how it has actually worked in practise and the findings are pretty positive.  Street prostitution has been cut in half; there is no evidence that the reduction in street prostitution has led to an increase in prostitution elsewhere, whether indoors or on the Internet; the bill provides increased services for women to exit prostitution; fewer men state that they purchase sexual services; and the ban has had a chilling effect on traffickers who find Sweden an unattractive market to sell women and children for sex.  Following initial criticism of the law, police now confirm it works well and has had a deterrent effect on other organizer and promoters of prostitution.  Sweden appears to be the only country in Europe where prostitution and sex trafficking has not increased.    Interestingly enough, the Government of Quebec is considering adopting similar legislation.  Perhaps the time has come to have a discussion on the Swedish model in our country.

DAVID FROST

British broadcaster won fame for exclusive interviews THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON - David Frost had sparred with Richard Nixon for hours, recording a series of interviews with the former president three years after he stepped down in disgrace over Watergate. But as the sessions drew to a close, Frost realized he still lacked something: an acknowledgement by Nixon that he had been wrong. Nixon had admitted making mistakes, but Frost put down his clipboard and pressed his subject on whether that was enough. Americans, he said, wanted to hear him own up to his misdeeds and acknowledge abusing the power of the White House. “Unless you say it, you’re going to be haunted for the rest of your life,” the British broadcaster told Nixon. What came next were some of the most extraordinary comments ever made by a politician on television. For Frost, who died Saturday, it was the signature moment of an illustrious tele-

vision career that spanned half a century and included interviews with a long list of the world’s most powerful and famous, including virtually every British prime minister and U.S. president of his time. A natural at TV hosting, he seemed to effortlessly inhabit the worlds of entertainment and politics. As a satirist, a game show host and a journalist, he disarmed others with unfailing affability and personal charm. “He had an extraordinary ability to draw out the interviewee, knew exactly where the real story lay and how to get at it,” former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said. Frost, he added, “was also a thoroughly kind and goodnatured man.” Blair’s former communications chief, Alastair Campbell, added on Twitter that Frost was one of the best interviewers “because his sheer niceness could lull you into saying things you didn’t intend.” Frost, 74, died of a heart attack

Saturday night aboard the Queen Elizabeth cruise ship, where he was due to give a speech, his family said in a statement sent to the BBC. The cruise company Cunard said its vessel left the English port of Southampton on Saturday for a 10-day cruise in the Mediterranean. Prime Minister David Cameron, one of the first public figures to send condolences, called Frost “both a friend and a fearsome interviewer.” BBC executives lauded him as “a titan of broadcasting” - both for beginning a tradition of satirizing politics and for establishing a more confrontational interview style. Frost began his career almost fresh out of college as the host of an early 1960s BBC satirical news show “That Was The Week That Was,” then a pioneering program that ruthlessly lampooned politicians. The show gained a wide following, and Frost’s signature greeting, “Hello, good evening and welcome,” was often mimicked.

Frost was popular in Britain and was gaining a foothold on U.S. television, but it wasn’t until 1977, when he secured the interviews with Nixon, that he became internationally known. The interviews were groundbreaking for both Frost and the ex-president, who was trying to salvage his reputation. At the time, they were the most widely watched news interviews in TV history. “That was totally off-the-cuff,” Frost later said of his question that prompted Nixon’s contrite comments. “That was totally adlib. In fact, I threw my clipboard down just to indicate that it was not prepared in any way. ... I just knew at that moment that Richard Nixon was more vulnerable than he’d ever be in his life. And I knew I had to get it right.” In the end, Nixon relented. “I let the American people down, and I have to carry that burden with me for the rest of my life,” he said. The face-off went on to spawn

a hit play and in 2008, a new generation was introduced to Frost’s work with the Oscar-nominated movie “Frost/Nixon,” starring Michael Sheen as Frost and Frank Langella as Nixon. Frost was born on April 7, 1939, in Kent, England, the son of a Methodist preacher. Over the years, his interviewees included a wide-ranging roster of politicians, from Russia’s Mikhail Gorbachev to Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto, as well as leading entertainment figures such as Orson Welles and the Beatles. He was the only person to have interviewed the last eight British prime ministers and the seven U.S. presidents in office from 1969 to 2008. Besides the Nixon interviews, one of the more memorable moments included a tense interview with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher over the sinking of the Argentine warship during the war in the Falklands. He is survived by his wife, Carina, and their three sons.

Goldeyes’ season ends too soon By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

Both Chris Kissock and the Winnipeg Goldeyes run at the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball playoffs came up just short on the weekend. In the end, the Goldeyes simply ran out of games. In the final week of play, the Goldeyes split a four-game series versus St. Paul Saints, and clobbered the division leading Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks 9-0 Saturday. But it was not to be, as the Gary SouthShore RailCats refused to lose, and maintained a 2 1/2 game lead for the wildcard over Winnipeg throughout the week. The win Saturday against the RedHawks, coincided with a RailCats 7-4 victory over El Paso Diablos, and with only two games remaining dashed the Goldeyes hope for the lone wildcard spot. The Goldeyes had staved off elimination Friday night with a come-from-behind 5-4 victory over the Saints with Fruitvale native Kissock coming on in the ninth to close the game and earn his second save of the year. “That was a real good baseball game tonight,” Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said on the Goldeyes website. “Mark (Hardy) gave us some outstanding bridge work in the seventh and eighth and Kiss (Chris Kissock) shut it down in the ninth.” St. Paul was leading 4-1 in the fifth, but the Goldeyes’ Tyler Graham and Amos Ramon drew walks and Yurendell de Caster hit a monster three-run bomb to tie the game. Then, with one out in the bottom of the eighth, Scoma singled and Sadler drilled a double off the left-field wall. Scoma scored all the way from first and Winnipeg led 5-4. In the ninth, Kissock, who has not given up an earned run in 21 appearances, got the Saints out in order, striking out two, to give Winnipeg the victory. Kissock’s run at the record for most appearances on the mound in a single season also came up short. With one game to play, Kissock has appeared in 49 games so even if he pitched in the final match, Monday, he will be one game shy of the 51-game record. Still, the Philadelphia Phillies’ draft pick had a memorable season for the Goldeyes, finishing with a 2-4 record, and two saves, pitching out of the bullpen as the set-up man for the closer. He registered a 2.40 ERA, with 54 strikeouts, while giving up just eight walks and 44 hits in 52 1/3 innings pitched. The last time Kissock gave up a run was July 20 in Rockland.

Trail smoke eaters

Final roster selected: let the games begin By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

After ending their exhibition schedule on a winning note, the Trail Smoke Eaters pared down their roster to the final 22 skaters on the weekend. Trail coach and GM Bill Birks got a last look at some young talent as the Smoke Eaters defeated the Merritt Centennials 2-1 in Merritt Friday, to close out its preseason. Trail carried 25 skaters into the three preseason matches that included an 8-6 victory over the Selkirk College Saints, Tuesday, and a close 3-1 loss to Penticton on Wednesday, before the win over the Cents. Birks was pleased with the team effort and is confident heading into the season with a substantial core of veteran players. “They were both good road games,” said Birks. “You know, we got some goals, had some really good goaltending, and we were pretty good in our own end.” Trail coaching staff pared the team down to the required 22 skaters for the season start on Friday at the Bauer BCHL Showcase at Chilliwack’s Prospera Centre.

To no one’s surprise, the Smokies will go with Adam Todd and Dustin Nikkel in net, however, 18-year-old Nate Rabbit impressed the Smokies coaching staff sufficiently that he will remain an AP while playing with the Castlegar Rebels of the KIJHL. The experienced defence will be led by smooth skating Braden Pears, who anchors a contingent of big veterans that includes returnees Valik Chichkin and Braedon Jones, as well as newly acquired Curtis Toneff, 20, Nathan Browne, 19, Nick Patey,18, and Joe Webb, 18. Up front, Trail native Riley Brandt, 16, is the newest and youngest recruit. Brandt AP’d last season for the Smokies while playing for the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. A tenacious forechecker and tireless worker, Brandt will likely see a lot of time on the penalty kill. “He’s going to be a roll guy for us, and he’s happy with that,” said Birks. New acquisitions this season include Linden Horswill, 19, of Nelson, Jake Kauppila, 18, from Gurnee, Ill.,(committed to Michigan Tech), former Prince George Spruce King Tyson Wittala, 20, Brendan Lamont, 19, Brodyn Nielson, 19, and Adam Ulfsax an 18-year-

old forward from Michigan. Rounding out the front lines are returning Smoke Eaters from Trail Jake Lucchini and Scott Davidson, Mitch Foyle of Fruitvale, Adam Wheeldon of Nelson, Castlegar’s Jesse Knowler, and Ontario native Bryce Knapp. “We got some good players in here,” said Birks. “We traded for a couple, and it’s hard to replace (Brent) Baltus and (Garrett) McMullen and even harder to replace guys like (Tyler) Berkholz and (Bennett) Hambrook, but you know I think our leadership group with Adam (Wheeldon) as our captain and Scotty (Davidson) and Pears (assistants) we’ll be alright,” said Birks. The Vernon Vipers will be looking to make an impression as hosts of the RBC Cup, however, early indications suggest a very tight Interior Division. The number of BCHL veterans in the Smoke Eaters line up should play a big role in getting Smokies near the top and into the playoffs this season. The Smoke Eaters face off against Langley on Friday at 7 p.m. and Cowichan Valley on Sunday at 2 p.m. The Smokies first home game goes Feb. 13 versus the Penticton Vees.

NFL’s settlement with its players over brain injuries, saying the CFL has been proactive in addressing concussions. The NFL has agreed to settle a lawsuit launched by former players suffering dementia and concussion-related brain injuries for US$765 million instead of going to trial, according to The Associated Press. In the lawsuit, hundreds of players accused the NFL of hiding the long-term dangers of concussions and hurrying injured players back onto the field, while profiting from the game’s violence. When asked if the CFL is preparing for the day when a similar lawsuit might be launched against the league, Mark Cohon

refused to draw comparisons. “I’m not going to speculate on what’s going to happen,” the commissioner told reporters prior to the Labour Day game in Calgary. “I’m not going to comment on their settlement. “What we’re essentially doing is making sure we’re focused on player safety. What we’ve been doing for years now is putting the right protocols in place. We actually had protocols in place on our sidelines well before the NFL had them. We look at discipline, concussion protocols, education. “This is all part of the process (of) what we do with our players, with our doctors to make sure the players are safe.

to make sure that we make our game as safe as we can without taking away what football is all about.” Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo, the CFL’s career leader in completions, passing yards and touchdown passes, is currently sidelined after suffering a concussion Aug. 17 in a game against Saskatchewan. Calvillo, 41, told reporters in Montreal on Friday that he was still experiencing headaches and also that his vision was affected. “Anthony has had concussions in the past. A lot of our players have had concussions,” Cohon said. “You never like to see your star player go down, but the most important thing is making sure we look after that player. “We make sure he’s diagnosed on the sideline. We make sure that he only comes back when he’s medically cleared and ready to go. That’s why he’s sitting on the sideline until he’s ready. That’s what we do whether he’s Anthony Calvillo or a rookie player.”

O’Reilly apologizes MONday & Movies

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly has apologized for incorrectly stating that no Republicans were invited to participate in a ceremony this week marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for civil rights and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. In fact, Republican House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor were invited but did not attend. Former President George W. Bush sent a statement in commemoration. O’Reilly had made the incorrect claim on Wednesday, the day of the ceremony. “The mistake - entirely on me,” O’Reilly said on his show Thursday. “I simply assumed that since all the speakers were liberal Democrats, Republicans had been excluded. So here’s the tip of the day: Always check out the facts before you make a definitive statement and when you make a mistake, admit it.” O’Reilly said the Republicans made a mistake, too. He said they should have been there.

Parents see move as permanent separation Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

I don’t think I can take the pressure anymore. What do I do? -- Pressured Family Dear Pressured: Your family wants you to stick around because they will miss you terribly if you move away. They foresee you marrying someone from Florida and raising a family there, where you will have only periodic contact. You see this as developing your independence. They see it as a permanent separation. If you can understand their underlying fear and sadness, it will help you respond more compassionately to their “badgering.” But this is your deci-

story. Tellers can chat while they cash checks, enter deposits or do any number of things. It only becomes a problem if the teller cannot multitask or when the chatting continues after the transaction is finished. If you notice this happening, you should register a complaint with the bank manager. Dear Annie: You gave good advice to “Lonely for Friends.” I have been fortunate to make and keep many friends. Here’s my advice: To keep friends, they must be nurtured like a garden. When you are with a potential friend: 1. Ask about them. Try not to be selfabsorbed. Show interest and care when they speak. 2. Discuss books, movies, current affairs (without the politics). 3. Invite them to your home and make another date while together. 4. Send a note by

email, snail mail or even text message letting them know you enjoyed being together. 5. Remember their birthday or the next big holiday. 6. Be there as a friend when life’s difficulties happen and celebrate the good

times. 7. Be lighthearted and fun to be around. To have a friend, one must be a friend. This also makes for better relations with co-workers. Friends are the chocolate chips in the cookie of life. -- A Good Friend

sion to make, whether or not they agree, so please have the courage of your convictions, which includes the ability to withstand the pressure. Dear Annie: I have an account at a local bank. Every time anyone enters the bank, a greeter meets us with good wishes, hellos and “What are your plans for the day?” The tellers chitchat with customers at the window, asking “How are you?” and “What are you doing for the holiday?” This takes up time when people are waiting for service. How do you tell them to shut up and get the line moving when you only want to do business and get out? -- Waiting for Your Answer Dear Waiting: Most of this friendliness does not take up as much time as you think.

Dear Annie: I am a college student who is about two years from graduating. I have been living with my parents while I am in school, because it’s cheaper than living on campus. A few years ago, I decided, for several reasons, to move from Ohio to Florida when I graduate. Although my parents have told me my entire life to do what I want to do, they are against this move. When I first told them about this decision, they thought I was just dreaming. However, as my college education is winding up, they are trying to convince me to stay. They will not let up with their reasons for me to continue to live here. I keep telling my family that moving is not a final goodbye. They are welcome to visit anytime, and I surely will return to Ohio now and then. But this information hasn’t convinced them to stop badgering me.

YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things might be confusing at work today, and possibly with your health as well. Just wait a bit, because by evening, you will see things more clearly. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Earlier in the day, parents should be vigilant about their children, especially regarding poisoning or drinking something harmful. By evening, life is back on track again. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A family member might not be entirely truthful with you today. Ironically, late in the day, someone older might step in with sage advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel confused today. Or perhaps you don’t have all the facts. Or someone may be trying to deceive

you. Whatever the case, by evening, you will know. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be careful with financial matters today. If shopping, keep your receipts and count your change. By evening, you might want to draw up a budget. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Conversations with partners and close friends are confusing and possibly deceitful. Be aware of this. Late in the day, however, you can sit down and make long-range plans for the future. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Something suspicious or sneaky might be taking place today. If you think something fishy is going on, it is! (You’ll know by evening.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your attempts to go along with people in a group are halfhearted today. You’re not sure this is what you

want to do. If so, do nothing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Conversations with authority figures -- parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs -- are subject to confusion today. Be clear in all your communications. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, which is why you will enjoy visiting galleries, museums,

parks and beautiful buildings. Later, you might make plans for travel or further education. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Today is a poor day to make decisions about shared property, inheritances, insurance matters and debt. Wait until this evening.
