Son who killed dad gets at least 12 years By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops man who killed his father last year after being denied $20 will spend at least 12 years in jail before becoming eligible for parole. Jaipreet Singh Toor was sentenced in B.C. Supreme Court on Wednesday, Oct. 2, after pleading guilty last month to second-degree murder. On March 20, 2012, the 46-yearold stabbed his father, Harsewak Singh Toor, 31 times in the chest during an argument over $20 at the family’s Brocklehurst home. Court heard the younger Toor had borrowed $10 from his 79-year-old father earlier in the day — money he spent on two cans of beer at a North Shore liquor store. He then returned to his father, asking for another $20. When his father said no, the younger Toor went to another room in the house and grabbed a knife before once again confronting his father. The elder Toor again refused his son’s demand, at which point he was stabbed numerous times. The struggle spilled out into the family’s front yard, where Jaipreet Toor

eventually left his father’s dead body with a knife sticking out of his chest. Toor then called 911 and confessed first to dispatchers and then to police that he killed his father. A second-degree murder conviction in Canada carries with it a mandatory life sentence, but it is up to the judge to decide how long the offender must wait before becoming eligible for parole. The Crown had been seeking a term of 12 to 14 years, while Toor asked for the 10-year minimum. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan said she was motivated to hand down a term longer than the minimum because of the nature of the offence. “Mr. Toor viciously attacked his elderly father,” she said. “Pent-up frustration erupted in an explosion of violence.” Donegan also noted Toor was still on probation at the time of the murder for an assault on his father in 2011. Prior to the killing, Toor had a brief criminal record, including the assault conviction and a few alcohol-related incidents. He was also convicted of assault last month after an incident involving a corrections officer at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre.

ON BOARD WITH HEROES Lance Cpl. Gary Wilson of Australia was among those riding the Rocky Mountaineer’s Life Changing Train for Heroes, which pulled into Kamloops on Tuesday, Oct. 1. The Train for Heroes honours those who have made a significant impact on the lives of others. This year’s journey saw the Rocky Mountaineer partner with organizations that support wounded soldiers and veterans. On board were five soldiers or veterans and their families, including Wilson, who was seriously injured in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan in 2010. The crash killed three of Wilson’s fellow soldiers and left him in a coma for almost three months. Wilson had to again learn to walk, eat, talk and use the left side of his body. In April 2011, Wilson married his fiancee, Renee. He is now being supported by the Soldier On organization. For more information on the Train for Heroes, go online to rockymountaineer.com/heroes.

Hot response to FIRE sale Evie Gagnon (left) and Andrea Miskimmin ring through purchases at the cashier till on Tuesday, Oct. 1, while regular shopper Jean Maslin (below) knows she’s supporting a great cause during this week’s fire sale at the New Life Mission’s Thrift City on Seymour Street.

EAN MASLIN KNOWS A DEAL when she sees it. She knows a bit of lemon oil will spruce up the kitchen table she bought. And she knows a healthy dose of baking soda in her washing machine will get rid of the slight smoky smell in the clothes she has in her red, plastic shopping bin. Maslin, a retired nurse, made her way downtown to Thrift City early on Tuesday, Oct. 1, wanting to take advantage of a full stock of bargains as the store started its three-day fire sale. It’s a real fire sale — the New Life Mission, which operates the Seymour Street store, needs to clear out inventory so workers can get in and start repairs made necessary after a fire broke out at the rear of the building on Sept. 23.

Karen Hayes and Denise Harvey were also at the store shortly after its 9:30 a.m. opening. Hayes had hoped to find a pair of boots she saw days before — and take advantage of the sale price of 50 cents for all clothing items. The boots weren’t there, but Hayes was delighted to find a pair of Sorels in good shape and added them to her ever-growing collection. Harvey said she peruses and buys from the store’s book section often, but was also checking out the racks of clothing and filling up her shopping basket. Hayes has a connection with the mission that goes beyond the store. As a videographer, she creates videos for the mission’s annual Back to Black fundraiser and did a series promoting the work of the agency that was used in a campaign directed at local churches. “I just love what the mission does and

A3

just couldn’t believe it,” she said. “First there was the House of Ruth, then a fire and then somebody breaks the front window? “Somebody’s got it out for the mission.” To try to shore up its finances, the mission closed the House of Ruth, its residential long-term treatment facility, earlier this year. And, just a day after the fire, someone broke the store’s front window. Kamloops RCMP are continuing their investigations. Kamloops Fire Rescue investigators have deemed the fire suspicious and referred their findings to police. No suspect has been identified in the vandalism other than a description the perpetrator was male. The fire sale concludes today (Thursday, Oct. 3) at Thrift City, 342 Seymour St.

Charges pending after weapons call Charges are pending against a 40-year-old man after Kamloops Mounties were called to a home on Shuswap Road on Tuesday, Oct. 1, to investigate a weaponsrelated complaint. Cpl.

Teens to learn about Power of Being a Girl dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

WHAT: Conference for teenage girls WHERE: Tournament Capital Centre WHEN: Wednesday, Oct. 16 TO REGISTER: 250-372-7725 adulthood. “We try to make that wishlist happen for them,” Brand said, noting she sat in on some of the meetings. “I was surprised at what I heard. For one thing, what we [adults] think is cool isn’t in a lot of cases.” After several meetings, that wishlist led to workshops that will focus on: • Media busting: How does the media influence the way teens view themselves and how can they protect themselves from societal pressure? • Inspiring words to live by: Participants

will be given a pillowcase and, using Sharpie markers, create a design that plays with words, images and phrases that will provide the teens with inspiration in the future. • Sketchbook of self-discovery: Again using the markers, teens will create art that addresses the importance of having healthy relationships. A new feature this year is a partnership with the Kamloops Art Gallery, which will showcase the artwork after the conference. • Snack power: Teens will learn about

pay nothing, it costs the Y about $80 per participant to provide everything at the conference. Businesses and individuals are being approached to donate $50 each a part of the Y’s Girl Flower Power Fundraiser. Donations can be made online at kamloopsy.org/girlpower or at any of the

Y locations. Each year, Brand said, someone asks why the organization doesn’t organize a similar event for boys. “Teen boys are equally important, but this is our capacity,” Brand said. “We need men and boys to create it. That would help with the process to get it going. There is a template

in place through the Y at the international level — Strength of Being A Boy — just as there is for the girls. Brand said if an organizing group came together, the local Y would provide guidance but, like the girls’ event, planning and legwork would have to be done by focus groups and volunteers.

Jacquie Brand has already learned something from the upcoming Power of Being A Girl conference — what she thinks is cool isn’t really cool to a lot of teens. That’s one of the reasons the Oct. 16 conference has been created — from workshops to keynotes to even what they’ll have for lunch — by the demographic it targets, girls between the ages of 12 and 14. Brand, program co-ordinator at the Kamloops YMCAYWCA Women’s Shelter, said focus groups were convened last spring. Teens got together to discuss the focus of the annual conference — to help give them building blocks to help them transition into

healthy, nourishing snacks that are inexpensive to make and how they can help boost energy. • Yoga and belly dancing: Good for the body and soul, beneficial to flexibility and strength — and fun. Participants can choose two workshops at the conference, which will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the Tournament Capital Centre. The conference is free and open to a maximum of 125 teens, although pre-registration is required. Each year since it was introduced in 2006, the conference has had a wait list, Brand said, so teens are encouraged to call the Y at 250-372-7725 to reserve a seat. Sponsors are also being sought because, although the teens

Seven laid off at Kamloops Daily News Seven staff at the Kamloops Daily News, including two advertisement designers and five who work in a department that prepares advertisements for clients, have received layoff notices. The move follows an announcement by parent company Glacier Media that it will be contracting out its ad-production departments in several newspapers in the Lower Mainland, effective Dec. 13, sending the work to be done in the Philippines and India by Affinity Express, which is based in Chicago. Daily News publisher Tim Shoults was unavailable for comment, but

Rob Munro, staff representative for Unifor Local 2000 (formerly the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union) said he learned the Daily News layoffs are effective Jan. 10. Munro said the composition department is not unionized and, with only two union members affected, he suspects Shoults did not advise him of the decision because labour legislation only requires notice of a large layoff if it affects a substantial number of staff. Munro said a similar layoff is occurring at Glacier’s newspaper in Prince George. “And I had to tell the publisher because she hadn’t heard about it,” he said. A clause in the Daily News contract does not allow layoff of full-time staff and the union was told the two graphic artists will be reassigned.

Watch madness ensue as we have no bits and bytes to chew

A

S I WRITE THIS, MY co-workers here at Kamloops This Week are coping with a reality that, for some of the younger ones, is incomprehensible. We have no Internet. We have lights and heat and all those things that indicate the power is working just fine, but we also have browsers that, when opened on our computers, simply tell us it does not compute. There was a time when this would not be a problem for our newspaper — and it wasn’t that long ago. I remember the day when, for whatever reason, the flats on which the actual hard copy of our stories and ads, after being run through a gluing machine so the pieces of paper would stick to those flats, weren’t ready on time. That meant we would miss the Greyhound bus we relied on back then to get all those flats to the printing press in Vernon. Our intrepid production manager, a human dynamo who would not let anything stop the newspaper from hitting your doorsteps, hopped into her car with the box of flats and drove them herself. Unfortunately, she has retired — although our office manager has been on the phone to her several times today trying to figure out a solution, while the rest of us watch various techies from our service provider and computer companies in the city come in to try to get us back online. It’s been stressful, particularly for that younger segment of our workforce who really can’t remember life without

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL email, search engines and a worldwide web of information readily available. Need to do some research? Pull out the back issues. No email? Try using the phone, folks. The old ways still work, for the most part — we’ve just become too dependent on all those bits and bytes doing the work for us, even if that simple search led to 36,778,942 hits. I find myself giggling now and then as I listen to an exasperated “still?” as another co-worker comes back into the office, expecting everything to be working again. It could be worse — and this is where I pull out my “I walked 10 miles in my stocking feet in the depths of winter over 10-foot-high snowdrifts” side, so feel free to stop reading now. Back in the winter of 1977, while working for the paper in my hometown of London, Ont., a blizzard hit. And I mean hit. It shut the city down — with winds up to 110 km/h, cars stranded on highways and snow that, at my house, at least, drifted up and over the roof. Our paper had multiple deadlines daily because we covered a 10-county

area, most of them getting a version of the paper geared toward them. In reality, that meant remaking the city and Western Ontario pages several times a day. The blizzard knocked out the power, so we were working by flashlights, meeting every deadline because we didn’t know when the presses in the basement would power back on. We used walkie-talkies to communicate with reporters who were out in the city — one of them using crosscountry skis to get around. Our switchboard still worked but, without electricity, the red lights indicating which line was ringing didn’t show, so it meant pushing button after button after button and hoping you got to the right light before the caller hung up — or you disconnected someone already on the phone. Our publisher put us up in a nearby hotel and warned the nearest hotels we’d be heading there for meals — and to send all the bills to him. He also had food brought in, mainly sandwiches because, of course, nobody had power. Four days later, the power came back on and the paper was ready to hit the presses. We’re doing pretty much the same thing right now, writing our stories and getting them edited, sending them through production, where the staff will do all their functions and load it all onto a thumbdrive to upload on someone’s home computer and get it all to the press — and you can bet that’s a shorter drive than heading to Vernon. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Delegates at last month’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention called for extending terms of office for mayors and councillors from three years to four. Bring it on. Anyone who has regularly watched municipal politicians in action or has served on such a board knows the avalanche of information the newest members must absorb. On top of learning the history of past decisions and choices to create the proper context for making good decisions, rookies must try to memorize the process and learn how best to work within those confines to be the most effective. In our estimation, it takes between one and two years minimum for an elected official to reasonably understand how to do the job. Therefore, this leaves about one year of a three-year term where they are sufficiently proficient to best represent the people who put them into office. Extending a term by another year will give residents better bang for their tax buck by reducing election costs. The proposal passed with a 60 per cent approval rate, with one rural delegate stating the idea came from “professional politicians” in the Lower Mainland, where pay is higher. While that may be true, it doesn’t change the fact this is an idea whose time may have come and it should be pushed forward as soon as possible. It’s not as though there isn’t precedent for this in Canada. If such a plan is enacted, B.C. would fall in step with every other province. Overall, we would be better served by having longer terms, both in terms of effectiveness of politicians and money saved by having fewer elections.

Health-care system not worst Editor: Re: Denise Powers’ letter of Sept. 26, in which she criticizes post-operative care at Royal Inland Hospital (‘Welcome to Canada’s no-care health system’): My husband is 79 years old. On Sept. 13, he had knee-replacement surgery at RIH. Before he went into the hospital, he was called to attend a pre-surgical screening clinic. My husband was instructed on what he needed to do to prepare for surgery. He was given many handouts as to what to expect before and after surgery. He was asked about home care, who was there to help and ease of entering our vehicle, our home and

our bathroom. Information was given if we needed anything from the Red Cross. As for post-operative care, I can not say enough good things about the nurses and staff on 6 North of the hospital, where he was sent after the operation. They could not have done anything more to make his stay comfortable. Though they were busy, they were always caring and pleasant. We may not have the best healthcare system in the world, but we are certainly far from the worst. Thank you. Marjorie Taylor Kamloops

Editor: On Sunday, Sept. 29, I attended a free lecture by Dr. Rob Hood and Dr. John Hull regarding the tourism industry in the Thompson-Okanagan region. They presented data from a variety of reliable sources showing the significant financial contribution tourism makes to our local economy and quality of life. They identified how the natural beauty of the Kamloops area is a deciding factor for many international students who have chosen to study at TRU. Clearly, tourism is not a minor industry and its benefits are shared throughout our community. They presented a convincing argument that having a large open-pit mine on the edge of town would have a serious impact on our tourism industry and they presented a case example of how having a mine 10 kilometres from a community significantly reduced that community’s tourism revenue. Overall, I was impressed by their attention to detail and their inclusion of verifiable facts (in dollars and cents) about this topic. The presenters made no secret of their enthusiasm for the tourism industry. Unfortunately, they may have conveyed that Kamloops citizens have some power to choose tourism over an open-pit mine. In fact, we do not. The Mineral Tenure Act gives preferential treatment to the mining sector at the expense of other development opportunities, including tourism and agriculture. The Union of B.C. Municipalities recently passed a resolution calling on the provincial government to modernize the act, though Victoria is under no obligation to do so. Our local MLAs have been alarmingly silent about the proposed Ajax mine and they have not added their voices to calls for modernization of the Mineral Tenure Act. I understand their interest in maintaining neutrality about the project and their insistence on waiting for the outcome of the environmental assessment. However, remaining neutral need not prevent them from acknowledging the seriousness of many residents’ concerns. Waiting for the facts about the proposed Ajax mine need not prevent Todd Stone nor Terry Lake from taking a stand in the legislature about our collective right to influence what happens in our community. Opportunities to learn about the predicted benefits and potential costs of having an open-pit copper and gold mine on the edge of Kamloops are (and will continue to be) available. The debate between those in favour and those opposed will continue. Sadly, none of that really matters if the provincial government favours the ambitions of mining companies over the needs and aspirations of its citizens. Andrew Bezooyen Kamloops

Streetheart to help with crisis calls in Pinantan By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

When there’s an accident, a crisis, a need for a first responder, the volunteers who make up the Pinantan and East

Paul Lake volunteer fire department are there, Sometimes, particularly with medical responders, it means dealing with the crisis “out of the back of our cars,” said Sarah Franklin.

A fire truck was donated, but there isn’t enough money to pay for its insurance to run it, she added. So, being the kind of person who sees a problem and steps up to help fix it, Franklin has organized a couple of fundraising events on Sunday, Oct. 12, that she’s hoping will not only draw from her community, but also appeal to the rest of the area.

It starts with a family fun day, that will run from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Pinantan elementary. Entrance is free and tickets can be bought in bundles valued from $10 to $50 each to take part in various stations, which include bouncy castles, face painting and hourly shows by Uncle Chris the Clown. Later in the day, the event will get musical. Still using the school

as a central venue, a 19-plus event featuring four bands takes over, with headliner Kenny Shields and Streetheart. Opening for him are 40 Foot Echo from Vancouver and Bongos 12 and the Henry Small Band from Kamloops. Franklin said free camping will be provided at nearby Paul Lake Provincial Park — with proof of attendance at the evening event — and a

park-and-ride program is being developed. Once the expenses are paid, the money will go to help improve the circumstances under which the 28 volunteer firefighters and 10 who provide other emergency services are now working. The goal is to build a hall on land that has been provided through a donation and the ThompsonNicola Regional District. Franklin, herself one

of those first-responders, is hoping to see 750 people buy tickets for the fun day and dance. Tickets are available through ticketmaster.ca or ticketweb.ca for $40 plus applicable taxes and service charges. They can be found by searching out Streetheart events. Tickets can also be had for $45 at the Pinantan general store or by calling 250-573-3303.

Canada Post is making more changes to its Kamloops services and city council is, as usual, less than thrilled. In a letter to council, Canada Post spokesman Tom Creech said the Crown corporation is about to switch up operations at its Seymour Street post office. While the letter didn’t state exactly what changes are coming, an attached photo showed a model post office with a single window for service and most products behind the counter. Creech said staffing levels at the post office “may change,” but did not elaborate on how. “With declining mail volumes and revenues, Canada Post must make smart decisions in order to maintain postal service while remaining financially self-sufficient,” he wrote. Mayor Peter Milobar said the change doesn’t do anything to solve Canada Post’s problems. “Every time I’ve been in that post office, I’ve waited in line for a few minutes, usually with a few people in front of me, usually with two clerks working,” he said. “In terms of driving people away, I think Canada Post is going to shoot themselves in the foot by making the lines longer.” Milobar believes there are better ways to save costs in Kamloops, such as doing away with separate boxes for in-town mail — which became irrelevant when Canada Post decided to ship all mail from the city to Vancouver for sorting. “I question these broad, nationwide impacts instead of looking at each location on a case-by-case basis and how busy it is,” Milobar said. Council decided to write another unhappy letter to Canada Post

Meter made: New pay parking on way STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

For downtown parking meters, it’s off with their heads. The city’s coinoperated meters are scheduled to get the chop in the coming weeks, when pay kiosks arrive downtown. Community safety manager Jon Wilson said the new pay stations — which will track parked cars via licence-plate number — should be installed at the end of October and be operational by the week of Nov. 4. City council took one of the final steps in the switchover process on Tuesday, Oct. 1, taking to third reading

out various new decals, street signs and a new website — kampark.ca — along with the pay stations. The city is also looking at offering Kam Park-branded key-ring fobs and wallet cards for people to write their plate numbers on, lest they forget them on the walk down the block to the pay station. In addition to accepting coins, the new machines will take credit cards. And, unlike the meters, they will issue receipts businesses can collect if they want to validate a customer’s parking. “There is the potential to basically come downtown and park for free,” Wilson said.

a bylaw to hike meter rates and parking fines and allow three hours of parking downtown. When the new stations go live, the cost of parking will double — to $1 an hour from 50 cents for 60 minutes. Built into the new rate structure are two more meter hikes. In 2015, an hour of parking will cost $1.25. In 2018, it will rise to $1.50. While the meter heads are being removed, the metal poles will remain, as will painted lines marking individual parking spaces. In an effort to make sure no one forgets to pay for parking under the new system, Wilson said the city will roll

STOLEN MEMORIES By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Lower Mainland couple is looking for help from Tournament Capital residents to recover a laptop containing photos of their dead son. Adam Rositch committed suicide in 2008. Since then, Chris Rositch and his wife, Christina, had stored all pictures and videos of their son on a laptop computer. Last month, Chris was visiting family in Valleyview. “On Sept. 1, I came out at about 8:30 in the morning to find my car window was smashed,” he said.

“I noticed the computer, camera and cellphone were missing.” Chris said he called Kamloops Mounties, who opened a file. “They just said this is common in that area,” he said. “It’s been happening more and more, it seems.” Now, the only mementos the family has of Adam are photos from his obituary. “I had a lot of pictures on the computer and some video on there also,” Chris said. “Therefore, we now have no memories of our son — just a few pictures. “We’ve lost all our memories

Breast cancer survival odds are increasing Research has led to identification of four subtypes of the disease By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

An estimated 3,000 women in B.C. this year will hear those words no one wants to hear — “You have breast cancer.” They will be part of a national group of women that will total an estimated 23,800 who will listen to that diagnosis this year. Their odds of survival, however, have improved dramatically since 1986, when the mortality rate in the country from the disease hit its peak, said Elaine Webb, senior director of health promotion and communications with the B.C. and Yukon branch of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Dr. Sam Aparicio has played a large part

GARBY

in that statistic. The doctor who works with both the B.C. Cancer Agency and the University of British Columbia — where he holds an endowed chair for molecular-oncology research — changed the way breast cancer is viewed when he and his team identified 10 subtypes. Originally, Webb said, breast cancer was seen as just one disease. Research led to it being identified as involving four subtypes of the disease and now, with Aparicio’s discovery, further mapping of the genes that can cause breast cancer also bodes well for better treatment of it, she said. Webb estimated the study that led to the discovery last year cost about $5 million and

took several years of investigation. Not all the funding came from the foundation, but from a variety of sources coming together to help the Aparicio team to run a bit further in search of a cure. His team also involved research partners, including the Manitoba Institute of Cell Biology and the Cambridge Research Institute in England. It’s not the first time Aparicio has added to

BOSSERT 1923 ~ 2013

On September 30, 2013, Mr. Herbert “Herb” Bossert of Kamloops passed away peacefully at the age of 90 years. He was born April 27, 1923 in Hoffnungstal, Romania.

Malcom Laurie Garby of Kamloops passed away on September 28, 2013 at 45 years of age. Survived by his parents Roy and Carol Garby, sister Teresa Grass and nieces Alieta and Kyra Grass. Malcom made the best of a difficult situation after his motorcycle accident 25 years ago. His passion was flying model aircraft and talking to anyone he met. He will be missed by his many friends. Special thanks to all the staff at Royal Inland Hospital and Interior Health Services, who cared so well for him. A memorial service will take place at 1:30 pm on Sunday, October 6 at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 270 Leigh Road, Kamloops, BC.

Herb is survived by his spouse Betty, his three sons Howard, Ted and David and his daughter Benita; his four step children Gillian, John, Anne and Geoffrey; ten grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his Àrst wife Barbara and step son Peter. A Celebration of Herb’s life will be held on Friday, October 4, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. in Saint Andrews Lutheran Church, 815 Renfrew Avenue, with Pastor Dave Schumacher ofÀciating. Should friends desire, donations to the Kamloops Alzheimer Society, Box 277, Kamloops, BC V2C 5K6 in memory of Herb would be appreciated.

the wealth of research being done on breast cancer. In 2009, his team showed how genome sequencing can be used to track how breast cancers evolve. More-targeted treatments mean potentially better results, Webb said, and are what have made the outlook for someone diagnosed with breast cancer brighter. Since the mortality peak in 1986, the rate has dropped by 42 per cent, Webb said, something

that can be attributed to several factors, including regular mammograms, healthier eating and better treatments. In its 2009 report 2020: The Future Without Breast Cancer, the foundation quoted Dr. Simon Sutcliffe, then-president of the B.C. Cancer Agency, saying to meet the goal identified in the report, “we need knowledge from research that can help us identify who has micro-metastatic disease, who will bene-

MAX JMAIFF April 20th, 1949 ~ September 28th, 2013 Max Jmaiff of Kamloops passed away on September 28th, 2013 at 64 years of age. Max is survived by his loving wife, Kathy Jmaiff, and daughter Lindsay Jmaiff. He is also survived by his brother Larry (Sylvia) Jmaiff, sister-in-law Vera Jmaiff, mother-in-law Margaret Henderson and many nieces, nephews and in-laws. Max is predeceased by his parents, William and Olga Jmaiff and brother Basil Jmaiff. Max was born and raised in Grand Forks, BC. He left at an early age to begin his trucking career, working in various locations throughout the province. There wasn’t a place in BC that Max didn’t run into someone he knew. He met his wife Kathy in Grand Forks and, shortly after, followed her to Kamloops where she was teaching. They were married August 16th, 1975 and recently celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary. Max was a long time Arrow employee. In the early nineties, Max ventured out to begin his own trucking business. With a cell phone permanently attached to his ear, he ran two companies. He was an employer who respected and cared for his employees. Max was an amazing father who said his greatest gift was the birth of his daughter, Lindsay. It was Max’s pleasure to watch his daughter grow into a successful and mature young lady. Max enjoyed golfing and socializing with his many great friends at local watering holes. He loved cooking Russian food and spent many enjoyable hours in his garden. Travelling with his family was a highlight, and he especially loved his times in Jamaica. He was a dedicated and hard worker who earned all of his successes in life. Max passed away suddenly on September 28th, after a very brief and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and all whose lives he touched. A Celebration of Life will take place at 2:00pm on Saturday, October 5th, 2013 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel. The family wishes to extend thanks to Dr. Wiltshire, palliative/hospice care, first responders, family friends and business associates and a special thank you to Gloria Keogh for all her love and support. In lieu of flowers, donations in Max’s name may be made to the Kamloops SPCA or Kamloops Food Bank.

students to doctors like Dr. Brad Nelson in Victoria, who is looking at vaccines being used to target the breast-cancer genome, and Dr. Paulos Teckle in Vancouver, who is studying the long-term income and employment impact on breastcancer survivors in the province. There are many areas being studied, Webb said, and several specific projects being pursued. One Aparicio has written about, and which the foundation sees as something to work toward, is creating a centre of excellence for research in breast cancer, much like the B.C. Centre of Excellence in HIV/AIDS. “Something like that would be lovely to see,” Webb said.

Sun Peaks, Rocky Mountaineer nominated By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Christopher Nicolson knew the marketing strategy for summer at Sun Peaks worked almost immediately. With a goal to draw people to the resort who might not normally drive up the mountain, the president of Tourism Sun Peaks said he knew from the number of winter bookings that followed two outdoor concerts this past summer the goal had been met. It’s a repeat from what they experienced last year, Nicholson said, after other musical concerts. The campaign is now up for an award from the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) in its marketing campaign of the year category. Other finalists include Lloyd Lake Lodge in Two Hills,

Alta., Tourism Calgary. Tourism Toronto and Tourism Whistler. Another Kamloopsrelated business, Rocky Mountaineer, is a finalist for employer of the year category. Nicolson said his organization wanted to create a reason for people to visit Sun Peaks that went beyond the existing amenities, but that would also complement them. This summer’s two concerts — Burton Cummings and Colin James — included other musical acts that were layered in to highlight the entire community, he said. The perfect experience, Nicolson said, would be someone who booked a hotel room on the day of one of the concerts, had lunch on a patio, maybe played a round of golf or went on a canoe trek through nearby McGillivray Lake, enjoyed the

There’s snow up there! There’s snow up there — way up there — but it’s enough to have started the annual guessing game at Sun Peaks. Christopher Nicolson, head of Tourism Sun Peaks, said there is about a 20-centimetre base started at the top of the mountain. “And there’s some on the northeast side, as well, that we’re betting on,” Nicolson said. “We do this every year. It normally teases us. It comes and goes and comes and goes, but I think it’s here to stay.” A mid-November opening for the upcoming ski season is still expected.

early December. TIAC is the only national organization that represents the country’s tourism industry. It has more than 300 members and affiliates representing more than 1.6-million jobs.

FEEL compelled to comment on the so-called Secular Charter being proposed in Quebec, one that has been garnering headlines. Of course there should not be any problem with the notion of removing religious symbols of any kind from government offices and public buildings. Having crucifixes or Stars of David hanging in courthouses and city halls is inappropriate. We live in a secular society and religionists are free to believe anything they choose, but they should not expect their beliefs to be virtually promoted by employees of our government. Dress codes are quite commonly enforced in workplaces with no complaint, so what seems to be the problem with the notion government employees should not be wearing religious symbols at work? It is hardly an infringement on their freedom any more than telling them that they can’t wear Chanel No. 5, which, in many workplaces and public buildings is prohibited. The rub seems to come when we are discussing the dress requirements of some religions that require women to cover themselves completely or even partially. I am talking about Islam and the longpractised tradition of women being treated much like chattel, with no rights and no freedom to dress as they wish. The hijab and the burqa are the most obvious examples of this. In her article Hijab, The Illusion of Choice, Nudrrat Khawaja points out a few facts from a Muslim woman’s point of view that I found interesting and enlightening. “Muslim states have a consensus that an unveiled or immodestly dressed woman tempts men to perform immoral acts, thus branding her the source of corruption in the society. “Therefore, to save

BILL LIGERTWOOD Rational THOUGHTS the society from adultery and other evils of the flesh, women must be kept hidden, segregated and completely covered in public, so that they are not able to arouse the carnal desires of men.” This is certainly not something I would think we want to promote in Canada. Khawaja goes on to write: “On failure to abide by the order, women have been publicly flogged or stoned to death. “Similar laws exist in Saudi Arabia, where the religious police charge women for not wearing hijab in public. This leaves women with no choice but to comply with the laws of their state. “Every voice raised against the blatant oppression of women has been silenced with equal force in these countries. “The patriarchal laws of these states deem women unfit to exercise the right to choose what to wear or decline

to wear any particular form of clothing. “ Do Canadians really want to adopt this mindset in the name of multiculturalism? I think not. In Canada, women have rights equal to men and, if your religion doesn’t see it that way, too bad. You don’t get an exemption from human rights because of your religious beliefs. It seems obvious to me that we do Muslim women a great service by prohibiting this kind of blatant oppression, not to mention the ageold tradition in some cultures of honour killing and forced marriage. It also seems obvious to me that Muslim women wearing this clothing is not a matter of free choice at all, but quite the opposite. So, do we insist on freedom of religion even if that freedom represents the oppression of women? Or do we insist that women are free to choose what they want to wear, or not, and whom they wish to marry, or not, and on and on it goes? If their religion required they be bound, gagged and handcuffed in public, would we be concerned? Some folks have expressed the concern that if, in fact, the veil and the burqa were banned, these women

would not be allowed out of their homes. Really? As far as I know, that’s called forcible confinement and is against Canadian law. So, really, let’s not get too carried away with defending socalled religious freedom when it is really religious oppression in many cases. The Secular Charter proposed in Quebec may not be the best solution, but requiring a dress code devoid of religious symbols in public while at work in the public service does not violate anyone’s freedom of religion — unless that religion demands its own dress code, and that is what seems oppressive to me. This leaves women with no choice but to comply with the laws of their state. Every voice raised against the blatant oppression of women has been silenced with equal force in these countries. The patriarchal laws of these states deem women unfit to exercise the right to choose what to wear or decline to wear any particular form of clothing.

Get a gander at city plan

Rail service set to resume Canadian National has announced plans to start freight service on 75 per cent of the rail network operated by bankrupt short-line Kelowna Pacific Railway (KPR). CN will resume operations on 97 miles of track running from Campbell Creek, 10 miles east of Kamloops, to Vernon, the Lumby junction and Lumby. CN will discontinue track KPR operated between the Lumby junction and Kelowna because of insufficient freight traffic. “I’m pleased to say that the parties were able to come together to assemble the right business and labour conditions to justify the resumption of rail traffic on the major portion of the KPR as well as a sizeable capital investment required to protect rail service in the region,” said Jim Vena, CN executive vicepresident and chief operating officer.

“We are targeting the resumption of operations as soon as we can ensure the track is brought back to a standard to ensure safe train operations.” This move comes after CN reached trustee, customer and labour agreements that support resumption of operations. KPR, which leased its network from CN in 1999, entered receivership on July 5 and halted operations. CN has reached agreements with the line’s trustee to take it out of the bankruptcy process; Tolko Industries., the main customer on the line; the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference; and TCRCMaintenance of Way Employees Division. The TCRC and TCRC-MWED represent 35 locomotive engineers, conductors and track maintenance workers employed by the insolvent B.C. short-line railway.

I had Luke and he came out with more hair than I did, the little bugger.” Luke, now two, has a rare heart condition, not a by-product of Becky’s cancer or chemotherapy treatment, she said. The multiple surgeries in the little guy’s future are just another series of hurdles the family plans on jumping over.

“They didn’t want me to have Luke,” said Becky, who has another son, Braden, 9, and a husband, Jeff. “They said, ‘Do you want to live for your child that you have now or do you not want to be around and try for this other baby?’ “But that’s not how we roll. “Pregnancy is one thing, but then having four rounds of chemo and surgery, in hindsight, it was pretty exhausting. When you’re in the moment, though, you just do it.” Becky seems to be through the worst and a healthy future now looks promising,

Powerless Power leads Gossip By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

wealthy socialite lies dead in an art gallery, and the only person who can get to the bottom of her murder . . . doesn’t really want to. Thompson Rivers University’s Actors Workshop Theatre channels film noir in George F. Walker’s Gossip, its first production of the 2013-2014 season. Tyrone Power (played by Brooke

Ballam) is a serious political journalist committed to exposing the worst actions of the government, no matter how depressing. “He has a lot of pride in what he does and he doesn’t like to be talked down to,” Ballam said. “But, he gets talked down to a lot. “He doesn’t have a lot of power, even though that’s his name. “It’s just a huge inferiority complex.”

The BC SPCA believes that if landlords were aware of the significant benefits of pet-friendly housing, they would be more inclined to offer it. One of the biggest direct advantages of offering pet-friendly housing is increased rental income, since people with pets will pay 20 to 30% more for housing. People with pets also stay longer – an average of 46 months, compared to 18 months for people without pets – saving landlords from having to spend time advertising for, finding and screening new reliable tenants.

Students at Thompson Rivers University received the opportunity to network with employees from RBC at the second Business Kickstart 101 event on September 18. Business Kickstart 101 is made up of 20 unique events that bring students and employers together for networking and learning opportunities.

“I liked how all the employees were really passionate about what they talked about.” SHAY ANDERSON

KICKSTART

101

Network. Learn. Be mentored. Win! ONE PROGRAM—MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES RBC is Canada’s largest bank and has over 15 million clients worldwide.

“TRU is an excellent resource,” said Maurer. “It produces top talent.”

Dave Maurer, Twyla Hartnell, Ryan Krisko, Char Muchipisi, Arthur Lin, Simon Boscariol and Dwight Harris, who are each RBC employees, took to the podium to talk about their different careers within the company. After their presentations, students were given one-on-one time with the employees to ask any questions they may have had about the banking industry.

The recurring message throughout the evening was the importance of working in an environment that jts with one’s values.

Maurer, a Branch manager in Kamloops and Chase, said RBC was very excited to participate in the event.

“ It’s important to align yourself with a company that has the same values you have,” said Maurer. “People always talk about climbing the corporate ladder, but make sure you’ve leaned your ladder against the right wall.” Each speaker let students know that mobility, transferable skills and networking are all key ingredients in having a successful career path.

“ Meet as many people as you can,” said Hartnell. “Network like crazy.” The speakers also mentioned that RBC has a multitude of opportunities and that supports the growth of their employee’s careers. Business student Shay Anderson said that she found the session very informative. “ I liked how all the employees were really passionate about what they talked about,” said Anderson.

THURSDAY

Gossip set to open Oct. 12 X From B2

When his boss insists he try his hand at murder investigation in an effort to make his column more cheerful, Powers doesn’t exactly jump at the chance. Nonetheless, the investigation kicks up a storm of intrigue, with Powers caught unhappily in the middle. While Gossip offers the usual film noir conventions, Jessica Buchanan, who plays Powers’ ditzy gal-pal Margaret, said the play pushes the genre to its limits, giving the show an almost Monty Python feel at times. “A lot of film noir, it’s kind of cheesy, the stuff they do,” she said. “So, some of the actions some of the actors do are quite awk-

ward and silly so it’s a bit of a farce too.” Then there’s the rest of the cast. “There’s lawyers, there’s an acting coach, there’s Powers’ boss, this lady who has visions,” Buchanan said. “There’s a lot of random different characters you wouldn’t normally see in a play together.” Also among the characters is a woman in a skintight black catsuit who is described as an “actress, sort of.” KTW has been assured the catsuit is actually her least interesting costume. “Everyone gets a huge moment, something where they’re the centre of attention onstage,” added Ballum. “That doesn’t happen in

every play.” While Powers does eventually crack the case, as with any good noir audiences shouldn’t expect to go home feeling everything is neatly wrapped up, Ballum said. “They’ll probably walk away going ‘what just happened’?” he said. “Not just like, what just happened, I want my money back — I don’t know what just happened but I think I like it.” Gossip runs Oct. 10 to Oct. 12 and 17 to 19 at the Thompson Rivers University Black Box Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available through the Actors Workshop Theatre box office at 250-337-6100 or at the Kamloops Live Box office at 250-374-5483 or online at kamloopslive.ca.

Be a chicken when it comes to chicken

I

T’S NEARLY SUPPERtime when a double chirp alerts me to an incoming text from my BFF of over 20 years, from back when tinned mushroom soup thinned with a little milk was considered haute home cuisine. “Is there a way to tell if chicken is still OK to cook?” she writes. Now, being of the if-youhave-to-ask school of thought when it comes to iffy poultry, I’m desperate to tell her to dump the whole tray pack, then give her the number of our favourite pizza place. I know my friend, though. With $30 of chicken breasts on the line, she won’t be so easily moved. And, short of driving to the outskirts of the city to smell the meat myself, there’s not much I can do except type

her through this. baggie she sent home “Just how old is this with me recently, and bird?” I write back. cringe. Twenty minutes “Sounds suspicious pass in silence and, to me,” I type. while I imagine her “I say toss it.

Lightly season chicken breast on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large non-stick pan, heat about one Tbsps. of the oil over high heat. Sear chicken breasts on both sides, then remove to a baking dish that has a fitted lid. Into the same pan, add another Tbsps. oil. Sear (brown quickly) shallots. Remove from pan, set aside. Heat a little more oil, then add mushrooms, and when mushrooms begin to lose their water, add shallots back in. Add one cup fortified wine, and allow to simmer briskly until liquid is reduced by three quarters. Pour contents of pan over chicken. Bake in at 350 F oven for 35 minutes or more, until chicken is cooked. Remove dish from oven. Remove chicken from dish, and then into the sauce stir the cornstarch. Add cream and parsley. Season to taste. Serve chicken with buttered egg noodles, slathered in sauce.

of the line. “Sweet can be the beginning of decomposition,” I add. “Or possibly it’s all the salt and sugar water they pump into chickens these days to plump them.” Even before I press send, I know shouldn’t have offered an alternative theory. “New rule,” I interject, quick as I can. “If in doubt, throw it out. Being violently ill isn’t as fun as advertised.” “Hm.” “Hm?” “I’m just not there yet.” “OK. If you’re confident the chicken’s never been warm, hasn’t been laying about under a sunlamp for a worrisome length of time, then use rule No. 3, which is to cook that bird ‘til it’s dead.” “Hm.”

“OK, let’s try again. “Does the smell make you think of those chickens on TV that are always trying to pretend they’re from Foster Farms?” “It kinda makes me feel queasy when I really sniff it.” By now I’m laughing, but have the sense to type, “Toss it! Toss it now!” Silence. “Or, you could run to a neighbour for an impartial sniff.” “Good idea!” she writes — and I can already imagine the look on her neighbour’s face. But, before she’s across the lawn with her suspect chicken, she stops and adds, “Wish you were the neighbour.” “Me too,” I type. And, I assume she lived.

ATING LOCAL SEEMS TO BE ON the tip of everyone’s tongue these days, and for good reason. As we learn more about our fragile food system, it is important for us to know where our food comes from. Supporting our local growers is key to our sustainability. For new and nursing mothers, eating local can take on a new meaning. Infants have an amazing wisdom in knowing where to source out the best possible nutrition for their growth and development. Newborns placed on their mother’s tummy will make their way to their mother’s breast. Breastfeeding helps bonding and closeness between mom and baby. The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a baby’s life, then continued breastfeeding with the addition of complementary foods for two years and beyond. Local community efforts are needed to support these international recommendations. In Kamloops, our local community has many supports in place for new parents wanting to establish a healthy feeding relationship. The Kamloops Health Unit hosts the Breast Feeding Centre at 519 Columbia Street. Drop-in hours are Mondays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon. Call 250-851-7300 for more information. And, every year, to further support and celebrate breastfeeding in our community, Kamloops breastfeeding moms and babies gather to join in the worldwide challenge for the most children breastfeeding at the same time in one location. Mark your calendar for the Breastfeeding Celebration 2013 coming to Kamloops on Saturday, Oct. 5. This celebration will be held at St. Paul’s Cathedral, 360 Nicola St. Registration is at 10:30 a.m. and latch-on time is 11 a.m. This fun celebration is an opportunity to join together and take action to raise public awareness about the importance of breastfeeding. Come out and take part in the event. Refreshments and draw prizes are provided. For more information about the global breastfeeding challenge, go online to babyfriendly.ca or call 250-851-7362.

FAITH

Inspecteur Cloiseaux of the Values Police

“I

nspecteur Cloiseaux! Let me introduce your new partner — Etienne Thibodeau. It’s his first day, so I expect you to show him the ropes.” “Oui, capitaine. It’ll be my pleasure. “So, Etienne, first day on the job, eh? Ready to make sure those ethniques don’t get away with flaunting our pur laine values? You can call me Jacques.” “Thanks, Jacques. I admit I’m a little nervous, but I know we have an important job to do.” “Certainement. I was one of the first ones hired here and my citation record is second to none. You are lucky to be assigned to me. So, are you ready, got your camera, your ruler?” “My ruler?” “Mon Dieu, you are such a rookie!

CHRIS KEMPLING You Gotta Have FAITH “Your ruler, your ruler! So you can measure the crosses and Star of Davids to make sure they aren’t too big.” “Oh right. I thought I would get one here.” “Unbelievable! Here, I have a few spares. Don’t go anywhere without it.” “So, where is our first assignment today? “There’s a day care on Rue Tremblay. “We’ve received a report of a large crucifix being worn by one of the workers. “Rookies ride in the

passenger seat.” “Hey, Jacques. Look at that guy on the back of the city garbage truck. Isn’t that a big cross on the back of his vest?” “Tabernac! Good eye, Etienne. Put on the siren! Tell you what, you can make your first collar.” “Gee, thanks, Jacques. “Monsieur! It seems you are in violation of the new Charter of Values law.” “What? How?” “Your vest. ‘Bikers for Jesus’ with the big cross in the centre. “It must be at least 14 centimetres high. “That is unacceptable. You are a public employee and not permitted to wear large religious symbols. I’ve taken your picture and one of your vest. You will receive a citation by mail shortly. “And take that thing off immediately!”

“Good work, Etienne. I’m impressed. I think you’ll fit in well here.” “Thanks, Jacques. We just can’t have garbage collectors wearing stuff like that where everyone can see it.” “For sure, for sure. Just last week I gave a citation to a Sikh guy X-ray technician at the hospital. Imagine thinking he can give X-rays wearing that turban. “He refused to take it off, so the hospital fired him. Pretty soon we’ll get rid of all of them — and not a moment too soon.” “It looks like this is the day care. You want I should do this one, too?” “No, no. My turn. Ah, there she is over by the swing set. Madame, a moment please. Your crucifix — a bit large, wouldn’t you say?” “Well, perhaps, monsieur. But it was my grandmother’s.

“She wore it every day and willed it to me when she passed. I wear it to honour her memory.” “Hmm. A touching story, but my little ruler here says it is one centimetre too large. “Completely unacceptable. If you wish, I have some metal snips to bring it into compliance.” “What?! But, there are four rubies on the ends. That would ruin it!” “Madame, you have three choices: Keep on wearing it and look for another job; take it off and leave it in your drawer; or submit to the snip. “Oh, madame, stop your snivelling. Tears do not move Inspecteur Cloiseaux. “Well? Ah, taking it off. A good choice, madame. Let’s not see this happen again. “There, Etienne. “See how it’s done?

“You can’t let the sentimental stories and tears get to you.” “Say, Jacques. Look at that janitor over there — his arm.” “Sacre bleu! That tattoo of the virgin Mary is huge! Monsieur! Monsieur! “A moment, please. Your tattoo. Are you aware that is a violation of the Values Charter?” “Violation? But it’s my skin! I prayed to the Virgin when my mother was dying and the doctors say it was a miracle she recovered. That’s when I got the tattoo.” “Well, well. You see, Inspecteur Thibodeau. Another touching story. “You’re going to have to cover that thing up. Much too large for a worker in a public institution, even a janitor in a day care. Long sleeves or unemployment. Take your pick, monsieur.” “But ,it’s 30 degrees. I always work in a T-shirt when it’s this hot.”

“Not anymore. “We’ll be back — and you won’t know when. That tattoo had better be covered up or it’s EI for you. “But, I’m a fair man. Here’s a list of facilities offering lasertattoo removal. A la prochaine, monsieur.” “Wow. I didn’t think we’d be going after tattoos.” “No exceptions, my rookie friend, no exceptions.” (Attention! Attention! All units respond. Public demonstration at the universite. Two-dozen professeurs with large yellow Stars of David sewn to their jackets marching down the street.) “Sacrement! Hit the lights and siren, Etienne. Today is your lucky day!” KTW welcomes submissions to the Faith page. Email columns to editor@kamloopsthisweek.com.
