Teck responds to request to improve visual appeal along highway BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

With all the construction kerfuffle happening on Victoria Street in downtown Trail another beautification project is quietly taking shape on top of the hill. Passersby on Highway 22 may notice a mountain of mulch piled at the northwest corner entrance to Tadanac. This is the first stage of a greening project Teck Trail Operations has committed to after receiving a letter written by avid gardener and Community in Bloom (CiB) volunteer Ingrid Enns, asking the company to consider planting trees to improve visual appeal along the roadway. “Since moving to Trail I have come to know Teck as an amazing corporation with how much they do for the community and how much they are on the forefront of environmental sustainability,” said Enns. “But when I drive by the smelter it looks like it might have 50 years ago and doesn’t give the impression of how far the company has come.” Enns and fellow CiB member Norm Gabana composed the letter with support from CiB and the Tadanac Residents Association, that included a proposal for a planting program. “I received a phone call right away and within a year, after prioritizing our suggestions, David DeRosa (superintendent ecosystems projects) met us with a design layout.” Enns’ plan for beautification was simple and involved planting groupings of evergreens along the west-side highway corridor that would render the barren section of highway aesthetically pleasing and provide natural dust control. Teck Trail Operations is undertaking a planting program, confirmed Catherine Adair, Teck’s community relations leader. “The focus is on three areas, onsite, perimeter and community.” The main objectives of the program are to cover bare soil to reduce dust and potential erosion, enhance local biodiversity and provide visual improvements, explained Adair. “There is an overarching goal of creating projects that are self-sustaining and require minimal maintenance.” A series of shrubs and trees will be planted to See LANDSCAPING Page 3

Jim and Jean Seminiuk have raised a family and many animals on their two acre property adjacent to ATCO Wood Products. The couple is worried their idyllic lifestyle will end if the company expands operations to their property line.

Valley property owner worried over possible industrial expansion BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

A rural landowner is left feeling an industrial strength pinch after a neighbouring wood products company is making a pitch to move in next door. Since the early 1970’s Jim Seminiuk and wife Jean have raised two children and many animals on two acres of tranquil pasture, located just outside Fruitvale in Area A, adjacent to ATCO Wood Products on Hepburn Drive. “Our property is one of the best kept secrets in Fruitvale,” said Seminiuk. “After living here for 41 years with all the privacy in the world, we love our home and don’t want to move.” He is the last resident living on the road, which can only be accessed by driving through the ATCO operations. For years Seminiuk leased an ATCO lot adjacent to his property for one dollar a year “to make it legal” and main-

tained an animal sanctuary for llamas, horses and natural wildlife in the area. After a neighbour who resided on the lot west of his property line passed away, the parcel of land was sold to ATCO. For a time, Seminiuk was appeased after he met with management at the veneer plant who assured him that the adjacent properties would only be used to store logs. “Things were going along just fine for a long time because we have barriers to noise and dust in place such as our barn and large chicken coop,” explained Seminiuk. “We were happy and enjoying our retirement.” That changed in July after Seminiuk received an unexpected phone call from a realty agency. “They said that ATCO is in a position to buy you out and we’d like to send somebody down to appraise your place.” He refused the offer.

“It’s like a wildlife preserve here,” said Seminiuk. “We are not interested in selling and too old to uproot and move anywhere else. The situation escalated later in the month after a large yellow sign appeared near the top of his street posting ATCO’s intent to rezone the properties to industrial. “We hit panic mode,” said Seminiuk. Scott Weatherford, ATCO’s chief executive officer said in an email response to the Trail Times, “The purpose of our current rezoning application is to match the zoning classification of the ATCO owned subject properties that are currently zoned rural serviced, with the zoning classification of adjacent ATCO owned, industrial properties. “This will help ATCO remain an economically viable business in the future, by allowing the use of the subject See RDKB, Page 3

South bids two diamonds to play. This is a new suit at the two-level, however, it is not forcing here. There are only two times in Standard American where a new suit at the twolevel does not promise 10 plus points and a rebid. It is when partner opens and RHO doubles or overcalls one notrump. We have see the double case in a previous column. In both cases, the suit must be playable and partner passes even with a void. Fits and points drive auctions not misfits and weak hands. West would have used Stayman had South passed, but in competition, Stayman is a cuebid and game forcing. West, therefore must pass. The Lead: The six

of hearts, top of a doubleton. Partner bid one notrump over one heart so he likely would like a heart lead through the opposition's hearts. The play: Declarer loses the first two heart tricks and ruffs the heart continuation high. He does not touch trump and loses a spade. If the opponents switch to a diamond, East will win the ace and return

a diamond, removing dummy's ruffing power. Declarer gets to dummy through the king of diamonds and pitches two spades on the top two clubs. Declarer will make eight tricks with diamonds as trump.

Trail to host CiB conference in fall 2014 Submitted TRAIL – The City of Trail and Trail Community in Bloom (CiB) are pleased to announce Trail will be the host city for the 2014 Provincial CiB Awards Conference. The two-day conference, to be held in the fall, will draw in delegates from around the province to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of participating blooming communities. “Hosting the awards conference will allow other CiB communities to celebrate their successes, while also allowing us to showcase the wonderful aspects of our City,” said Dan Rodlie chair of the Trail CiB Committee in a press release from the city. “Having been involved with CiB since 2002, Trail CiB takes a lot of pride in the promotion and beautification of our city. Since then, Trail has won the national competition twice and consistently maintained its Five-Bloom status. “We look forward to sharing this experience with other communities.” Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs said hosting the event is a great opportunity for the city.  “CiB has been an integral part of our city’s image for quite some time.  We look forward to showing Trail to the visitors while also celebrating their successes.” The conference will highlight the award ceremonies to recognize Five-Bloom, FourBloom, Novice and Non-Evaluated communities. Community speakers, round-table discussions and activities and tours will also be on the schedule of events. Trail is competing in the international Community in Bloom for towns with a population under 10,000 and the winner will be announced in Ottawa at the end of October.

Landscaping will lead into revitalized downtown

It’s exciting because it will segway into everything that is going on with the downtown revitalization. We are finally connecting the plant to the city.”

Six fire trucks (one from Genelle and five from Trail) responded to a trailer fire in the Whispering Pines park in Genelle on Tuesday afternoon. The fire was confined to one trailer home which was completely destroyed. There were no reports of casualties or injuries. With no hydrants in Whispering Pines, water was being trucked from approximately four blocks away according to firefighters on scene.

This permit is in place in order to address and help mitigate possible negative impacts to adjacent property owners.” Although a meeting was held earlier in the year to air inviting the public to air their concerns about rezoning the pastures, Seminiuk didn’t attend. He heard from acquaintances who did meet, that fears of industrial noise and plant expansion were allayed during the gathering. “To clarify, I knew about the meeting but thought that going down the garden path with ATCO meant there was no problem because the land would only be

Seminiuk voiced his worries at the final meeting in the Fruitvale Hall but is convinced his words fell on deaf ears. “I don’t know where this is headed but we are the only ones left on the street.” There was a public hearing Sept. 23, confirmed Grieve. Seven members attended to provide comment and those will be passed on to the board for review prior to the final consideration of this application, she added. Now, the rezoning decision is in the hands of the full board of regional directors Oct. 30 in Trail. “I feel blindsided that the decision to rezone which will dramatically affect or ruin my life, lies in the hands of regional district directors as far away as Big White and Rock Creek,” said Seminiuk. “Not one of them has even come to see me and my property and has no idea what their decision will affect. This is David and Goliath as far as I am concerned.” ATCO has been at its current location for over 50 years, injecting nearly $25 million annually into the economy and providing over 100 jobs, added Weatherford.

used for log overflow. Neighbours who went said that they calmed everyone down and there shouldn’t be a problem.” In the following weeks, Seminiuk received a letter from the regional district stating that ATCO requested to rezone the land for log storage, however the company would like to use the properties for industrial expansion in the future if opportunities arise, according to Seminiuk. “Right then I thought if they have the land right next to me there will be all kinds of trouble in terms of noise and dust. I am going to be squeezed out.” Further, the regional district letter stated that he would have one last chance to discuss his concerns at a public hearing before the rezoning decision is made, which is the point Seminiuk finally realized what could happen. “My sundeck that I sit on to enjoy afternoon sun and the sounds of nature is only 40 feet from their property line,” he continued, “Who knows? This winter could be quiet and nothing happens and before you know it in the spring, ‘boom’ everything will start.”

Wide gaps remain in oil spill scenarios By Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. environment ministry has released its promised study of the current state of crude oil spill response capability, tracking the growing tonnage of petroleum shipping along the West Coast and estimating response time and effectiveness if oil was to spill at sea. Oil recovery in computer simulated

oil spills could be as high as 25 per cent after five days, or as low as four per cent for Alaska crude, with another quarter evaporating. The study was commissioned to back up Premier Christy Clark’s conditions for B.C.’s approval of expanded heavy oil shipments, either from twinning the TransMountain pipeline from northern Alberta to Burnaby, or

the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway project across northern B.C. to a new tanker port at Kitimat. Environment Minister Mary Polak said the study shows the need to increase response capability before the B.C. government would consider increased oil shipments. “While we respect federal jurisdiction over marine spills, we must ensure B.C.’s

interests are being met, and that means adding more resources to protect our coast,” Polak said. The three-volume report also details the huge and growing traffic that exists now. Shipping data show a 17 per cent increase in marine traffic volume from 2011 to 2012. An estimated 110 million cubic metres of petroleum products per year are shipped, about a third of which

You & The Law

NEW LAW FOR LIVE-IN LOVERS “New law turns shacked-up lovers into married couples” and “Room-mates with benefits watch out!” trumpeted headlines when B.C.’s Family Law Act came into force March 18, 2013. These days, many more couples choose to live together for the long term than get married. The need to better deal with this new reality, and the fallout when some of these common-law relationships inevitably end, is one reason for the new law. Also, family law disputes often took up heaps of court time. The new law recognizes that the bitter “I’ll see you in court!” approach is often not the best way to go. If you have children, it’s particularly important that you have a civil relationship with your ex-partner long after you separate. The new law reflects that it may be better to try to work through family break-up issues. It encourages mediation, getting the help of a parenting co-ordinator and negotiated agreements instead of going to court. But the biggest change – and the one that prompted the dramatic headlines – has to do with the splitting of assets and debts after a break-up. Before, if you lived in a marriage-like relationship for two years or more, you could ask for financial support after a break-up. But when it came to property like the family home, the situation was different. Married couples generally got onehalf of the family assets, no matter which spouse owned them (though the court could order a different split). Common- law partners, though, even if they contributed to the relationship financially or by looking after the children, faced an uphill court battle to try and get a share in property owned by the other. Now, if you’ve been living common-law for two or more years, the law treats you the same as a married person for dividing up your property and debts. Family property is now divided equally, unless that would be significantly unfair. You have up to two years after breaking up to make a claim. But for both married and common-law couples, the new law excludes certain property from being split equally. Basically, you get to keep what’s yours if you owned the property beforehand. Also, a gift or inheritance (or things bought with that money), or insurance money or personal injury compensation specific to you, that you got during the relationship generally stays with you and isn’t carved up between you and your ex-partner – only its increase in value during the relationship is shared. If you don’t want the new law’s property rules to apply, you can agree with your partner to opt out (by a written agreement) and divide your property and debts as you see fit upon a breakup. It may make a lot of sense, well before the two-year common-law milestone is reached, to figure out if you share similar long-term goals and how you want to split your assets and debts in case you separate. The new law deals with many other things like giving notice if you want to move with your kids, parenting arrangements, family law protective orders and more. Seek good legal help if you need assistance with how the new rules apply to you or if your live-in love relationship sours.

is crude-like bunker oil carried as fuel on ships of all kinds. The biggest tanker cargo is 38 million cubic metres of mostly Alaska crude a year. The study includes recovery estimates for seven oil spill scenarios, six of which assumed a spill of Alaska North Slope crude that has been shipped by tankers down the B.C. coast to U.S. refineries since the 1970s. Two scenarios involve an Alaska

crude spill in Dixon Entrance, with four per cent recovery in summer an three per cent in winter. One scenario examines a summer-time spill of diluted bitumen in the Juan de Fuca Strait, with response from Canadian and U.S. ships and oil recovery equipment. It estimated 31 per cent oil recovery after five days, in summer conditions with daylightonly operations. Diluted bitumen

tanker shipments from Kinder Morgan Canada’s Burnaby terminal hit a high of 69 in 2010. The expansion would mean 300 tankers a year in and out of Vancouver harbour. The federal government has launched its own research project to model the drift and behaviour of a bitumen spill in the ocean around Kitimat, and funded marine weather forecasting to facilitate shipping.

Crown appeals sentence for lawyer who helped gang

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - A B.C. lawyer who became the first barrister in Canada to be sentenced for helping a criminal organization could face more time behind bars. Crown prosecutors are in the B.C. Court of Appeal, fighting the one year jail term handed to Vernon, B.C., lawyer William Mastop in April, after the 46-year-old admitted to aiding a North Okanagan gang known as The Greeks. According to the Crown, Mastop gave the gang sensitive court documents that led to several murders, but the trial judge ruled there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the information led to the deaths, and

Justice Mark McEwan also found only a portion of Mastop’s behaviour was criminal. McEwan ruled Mastop’s actions were little more than a “convenience” to the Greeks and said the moderate jail term should reflect Mastop’s loss of career and community standing. Mastop hasn’t practised since 2010 and also faces additional disciplinary action from the Law Society of B.C., which says it could impose penalties ranging from reprimand to disbarment. The appeal court hearing is slated for a single day and a decision from the panel of judges is expected to be reserved.

Labour shortage projected By Shaun Thomas The Northern View

With significant growth projected in the industrial sector in the northwest, the tourism sector is going to need thousands of new people to fill vacant positions. That was the conclusion of go2hr, the group responsible for coordinating the BC Tourism Labour Market Strategy, which projects 3,810 job openings are expected in northern B.C. by 2020. And while that may be seven years away, go2hr expects shortages could begin to be seen as early as 2014. “The northern B.C. region faces specific pressures within our industry,” said Arlene Keis, CEO of go2hr. “Unemployment is already tightening up in the region, par-

ticularly in the Northeast, and the expanding mining, oil and gas sectors are enticing young workers to take positions, creating an added strain on the tourism providers in the region.” One Prince Rupert hotelier said the impact of this industrial growth is already being seen in the community. “With the growth of our industry alongside the resource and forestry industries, tourism businesses in northern BC are already experiencing labour pressures and shortages,” said Scott Farwell, manager of Crest Hotel. “As our industry expands, these pressures will increase, resulting in a need for us to attract qualified and enthusiastic staff for various positions within the hotel.”

National Loonie still flying high

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The loonie may have slid well below parity during the past few months, but it hasn’t skidded nearly far enough, says a London-based economic organization. World Economics says at current levels of about 96 cents US, the loonie is still about 10 per cent higher than it should be based on the currency’s purchasing power. That would mean the true value of the Canadian currency is under 88 cents US. Briefs The finding is contained in the organization’s latest World Price Index, which compares leading currencies against the U.S. greenback. According to the analysis, the most overvalued currency is the euro in France, at 28.8 per cent above true value. Also overvalued are the Japanese yen and the Brazilian Real. Meanwhile, India, Mexico and China have the most undervalued currencies. Bank of Montreal chief economist Doug Porter said that last week he put out a price comparison between U.S. and Canada that showed consumer items on average cost 10 per cent more north of the border.

Alberta

Flood victims face rent THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - Flood victims in temporary accommodations in southern Alberta will begin paying rent next month. Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths says the province only promised rent-free living for three months to allow residents to get back on their feet following the June disaster. Payments kick in Nov. 15 and will vary depending on the number of people in a household. They will be $627 a month for one adult up to just over $1,200 for a family of four. The rent is intended to offset about 10 per cent of the province’s operating costs for accommodations, meals, utilities, TV and other services. Homeowners can apply to have rental costs covered under the province’s Disaster Recovery Program.

Speech marks unofficial start of 2015 election THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The Harper Conservatives will hit the gas pedal this week in the race toward the next election in 2015. But the opposition parties are vowing to push down hard on the brakes in reminding Canadians about what they call the government’s lapse in ethics in the Senate. In a speech from the throne today, the Tories will be driving ahead with their jobs and tough-on-crime agendas while steering slightly to the left to pick up passengers on the social and consumer issues track. The speech is expected to focus on bedrock Conservative issues - creating jobs and rebuilding the economy - with particular themes targeted at creating employment opportunities and providing job training for aboriginals in the resource sector. But several consumer-friendly measures will also be incorporated into the blueprint document, designed to counter proposals expected from the opposition. Those measures are also aimed at turning the attention of voters away from the Senate spending controversy that has seen several Conservative appointees and one Liberal taken to task over their travel and living expenses.

STAR G ROCERY • Fine Italian Foods •

The sales pitch will include measures directed at alleviating consumer irritants, such as a plan to force cable and satellite TV providers to adopt a pick-and-pay price model, in conjunction with the bundled channel payment plans they currently offer. The Tories also hope voters will appreciate moves to create an airline passenger bill of rights, designed to compensate people who are inconvenienced when air carriers overbook flights. There will also likely be references to increasing competition in the wireless sector and to capping domestic cellphone roaming fees. But if the government is serious about helping consumers, it will reduce the price gap between goods sold in Canada and the United States by further lowering tariffs and cutting costs for retailers by placing a cap on credit card fees charged to business, says the Retail Council of Canada. “What we’re very much eagerly awaiting is a recognition that addressing each one of those areas will result in benefits to Canadian consumers, and a signal from the government that they’re continuing to explore opportunities to reduce those costs,” said council senior

Court of Canada about a reference that asks whether the red chamber can be reformed, or even abolished. The throne speech will include a handful of new promises to further crack down on crime. But don’t expect any big new initiatives that would risk spending lots of money or that cannot be completed in time for the election, say insiders. Public safety and

protecting the environment will likely also go hand-in-hand in segments of the speech that touch on the LacMegantic derailment disaster and recent oil pipeline leaks. But even that will be a balancing act as the Harper Conservatives hope to convince Canadians that getting oil and other commodities to market is essential to creating jobs and economic wealth.

vice president David Wilkes. However, the credit card fee issue is not expected to make its way into the throne speech, said Industry Minister James Moore. The federal Competition Tribunal struck down a complaint against Visa and Mastercard in July over the processing fees they charge businesses for using their cards, and a government finance committee has been grappling with the issue ever since. The Conservatives already have a website and Twitter app set up to bring Canadians highlights from the throne speech under the banner “Seizing Canada’s Moment - Security and Prosperity in an Uncertain World.” The speech, opening the delayed second session of Canada’s 41st Parliament, will be read by Gov. Gen. David Johnston in the Senate - the very chamber at the centre of an expense scandal that has dogged the Conservatives since the last session. And no matter its content, the Opposition is sure to take advantage of the optics. Still, the government is not expected to say much about Senate reform, waiting instead to hear back from the Supreme

Justin lacks his father’s strength of character

B

orn in the Baby Boom, I came of age in the Trudeau era - that’s Pierre, not Justin. I was thinking about the difference between the two recently as I contemplated Justin’s reluctance to be drawn out on his policy ideas. In what seemed to me an echo of Kim Campbell’s “elections are no time to discuss policy,” Trudeau the younger has said that these early days are no time for him to talk about his beliefs, but rather a time for him to consult and seek guidance from the party faithful and Canadians generally about what they want. Trudeau père would, in my estimation, have scorned such an approach and the differences between the two tell us much about their respective styles of leadership and how the country might be run under Trudeau fils. It cannot be said, of course, that Pierre never consulted, dodged an issue or laid the blame for the policies he pursued on others.

On the other hand, he only did so on issues he didn’t feel strongly about. Since he didn’t care, and was happy to be guided by others more knowledgeable than himself, on those issues he may well have sounded rather Justinesque. But on key issues on which he felt strongly, he never held back. On the contrary, he could be single-minded, authoritarian and downright steely in the pursuit of what he thought was good for Canada. Nor did he wait to become prime minister to reveal those feelings. In his youth, he expressed the greatest contempt for the Duplessis regime and its approach to civil rights and labour unions. He helped to found a journal, Cité Libre, to excoriate the Quebec élites he believed had been instrumental in holding back Quebecers. What drew him to federal politics was largely a belief that being part of Canada brought out the best in Quebec, required its citizens to rise above

petty nationalism and to embrace a larger, more generous political vocation. When he was minister of justice under Lester Pearson, he savaged the narrow nationalism of Quebec Premier Daniel Johnson to his face at a televised first ministers’ conference. On a host of other decisive issues of the day during his Prime Ministership, whether the FLQ crisis, the Victoria Charter, price and wage controls, the National Energy Policy or Patriation and the Charter, there was not much doubt in the minds of Canadians where he stood.

Yes, he changed his mind on things, like price and wage controls, and so it is fair to say that you knew where he stood today but not necessarily where he would stand on the same issue tomorrow. But that was one of those issues on which he didn’t have strong feelings. Economics were not his strong suit, as Liberal economist Eric Kierans, Western Canadians and others discovered to their horror and disillusionment. On the things that really mattered to him, though, Trudeau senior was acknowledged to be obdurate, emotional and opinionated. He needed no consultations to know where he stood. And many Canadians loved him for it. Why? Because strong feelings on issues reveal something about the character of the person who has them. We learn something important about who they are, what matters to them, what they’ll make personal sacrifices to achieve. Watching Pierre was a

master class in the art of political leadership. It is irrelevant whether you think he took the country in a positive or a negative direction. What matters is how he led and why we followed. What I learned from watching Pierre was that people didn’t need to agree with him to want to follow him. Frequently people voted for him in spite of their policy convictions because he had a compelling vision. What do we know so far about Justin’s deep feelings as revealed in the policies he is willing to risk all on? Mostly that he won’t know what they are until he hears from people what they want. And that the state has no place in the dope rooms of the nation.

LETTERS & OPINION

Tax the rich! Wait, we already do

T

he federal budget presented last March offered a timely reminder of something that many Canadians may not realize: a surprisingly big slice of the federal government’s overall revenues comes from a single source, the personal income tax (PIT). According to the budget, Ottawa’s PIT revenues will reach $131.5 billion in the current fiscal year, which is equivalent to half of all of the money collected by the national government. The federal government’s second biggest revenue generator is the corporate income tax, followed by the GST. PIT is also the number one revenue source for the provinces, although it makes up a smaller portion of their tax base than of Ottawa’s. Who pays the personal income tax? Most Canadian households except those with low incomes contribute something. But an examination of data from the Canadian Revenue Agency indicates that the PIT burden falls preponderantly on the most economically successful individuals and families. Consider the following summary statistics: There were 25.5 million Canadian tax filers in 2011. Of these, the richest 20 per cent coughed up threequarters of the income tax collected by the federal and provincial governments combined. The remaining 80 per cent paid the rest. The richest 1 per cent of tax filers had taxable incomes of at least $201,400 in 2011. This small group accounted for 11 per cent of total personal income and provided 20 per cent of the PIT revenues flowing to the federal and

provincial governments. Put differently, 1 per cent of all Canadians who file tax returns are responsible for a share of personal income tax that is 20 times greater than their share of the tax-paying population.

At a time when the issue of inequality is attracting lots of public discussion, it is useful to remember that Canada maintains a “progressive” income tax system, meaning that people typically face higher tax rates as their incomes rise. This point is sometimes ignored by commentators concerned about inequality, many of whom imply the “rich” are paying too little tax. While such judgments are necessarily influenced by subjective values and philosophical dispositions, the data show that a small number of relatively affluent Canadians pay a significant portion of the total income tax collected by the state. That said, the past three years have seen several provinces take steps to hike tax rates on the fortunate few.

WEBSITE POLL RESULTS: Is it time to ban fighting in hockey? YOU SAID... NO

YES 72%

27%

Nova Scotia did so in 2010, by establishing new high-income tax bracket. Ontario followed suit last year with its new “tax on the rich” that applies to 25,000 high-income earners. As a result, Ontario’s combined federal-provincial top marginal income tax rate is now just shy of 50 per cent, almost back to where it stood a decade ago. In Quebec, top earners face combined federal-provincial tax rates above 50 per cent. Even in British Columbia, an avowedly “pro-business” government recently legislated a new tax bracket for incomes above $150,000 a year, a step that will lift the top combined federal-provincial tax rate in that province to approximately 46 per cent (well above the 39 per cent to marginal rate in next-door Alberta). As governments struggle to reduce deficits and put their finances on a sustainable footing before the coming onslaught of retiring baby-boomers, the prospect of higher taxes looms. Indeed, after 15 years of tax reductions, the prevailing trend is now pointing in the other direction, at least at the provincial level. But as policy makers reflect on the options available to boost government revenues, they would wise to recognize that Canada already relies heavily on the personal income tax and that the most economically successful 1 per cent and 5 per cent of households are shouldering a large portion of the current PIT burden.

Hans Riegel

Candy maker brought gummi bear to world THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BERLIN - Hans Riegel, who made German candy maker Haribo and its signature gummi bears a chewy hit for children - and adults across the globe, died on Tuesday. He was 90. Haribo said in a statement that Riegel died of heart failure in Bonn, where the company is based. He had been recovering from an operation to remove a benign brain tumour. Riegel was the son of the company founder, also named Hans Riegel, who in 1920 set up Haribo - an acronym for “Hans Riegel Bonn.” In 1922, his father invented the “dancing bear,” a small bear made out of fruit gum that laid the foundations for Haribo’s later success with the “gold bear.” The company founder died in 1945. Upon being released as allied prisoners after World War II, Riegel and his younger brother, Paul, set about rebuilding the family firm. Haribo had only about 30 employees immediately after the war but, as West Germany’s economy took off, the number was up to 1,000 five years later. Paul Riegel, who died in 2009, focused on production while Hans Riegel took charge of marketing and sales - for instance, promoting the company’s wares with the slogan “kids and grown-ups love it so, the happy world of Haribo.” Haribo said Riegel took inspiration from children’s magazines and comics, once saying: “I love children. They are my customers. I have to be informed about what they want to nibble, what they think, what language they speak.” In the 1960s and 1970s, Haribo acquired businesses in the Netherlands, France and Britain; and in 1982, it added a sales office in the United States, setting up Haribo of America Inc. in Baltimore. Ubiquitous in Germany, they are also available in the most far-flung and unlikely places around the world, beloved for their bright colours, sugary taste and teddy-bear shape. “Wherever I travelled in the last few years, the gold bears had already long been there,” Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said as he paid tribute Tuesday to Riegel’s achievement in making Haribo “a German global brand.” Riegel was awarded Germany’s highest honour, the Federal Cross of Merit, in 1994. That was recognition not only of his business career but of his commitment to social issues.

Meeting mom – after 52 years

Surrey woman reconnects with mother who vanished in 1961 By Sheila Reynold

Surrey North Delta Leader

When her plane landed in Whitehorse last month, Surrey’s Linda Evans spotted the group of people awaiting her arrival. There, standing at a distance in the airport, were her new-found half-sister and two half-brothers – neither of whom she’d met face to face – as well as others she didn’t know. Among them was Lucy, a woman Linda recognized from a photo she’d been sent. In recent weeks, the two had also been talking on the phone. But it had been 52 years since she’d been in the same room, looked into her eyes or felt her touch. Linda was only about seven years old when Lucy, her mother, disappeared from their Surrey home. Instead of following the other passengers inside the airport, Evans entered

through a different door, approaching the group from behind. “I was so nervous,” she recalled. “My stomach was in a knot.” When the group turned and saw her, they yelled “oh my God!” and ran to hug her. It was all a bit overwhelming, but Evans is starting to get used to the bizarre turn her life has taken in recent months. It all began in late June, when the Surrey RCMP issued a public appeal in a historic missing persons case. The case involved a woman named Lucy Ann Johnson, who lived in Surrey with her husband and two young kids until 1961. That’s when she vanished. After the RCMP made their public plea, Evans also set out searching, eventually placing a classified ad and old photo of Lucy in a newspaper in the Yukon. Her mom was born in Alaska so she thought it was worth a shot. The emails and phone calls soon began. Someone recognized the “missing” woman. She wasn’t missing at all, but

www.MyAlternatives.ca

was living in the north. Through July and August, Evans, who is in her late 50s, got to know her mom and her new-found sister Rhonda Glenn. She also learned she had two more half-brothers. She vowed to save her pennies and planned to fly north for a visit. In early September, however, she was on a flight, courtesy of Lucy, who footed the bill. The week-long visit, Evans said, wasn’t nearly long enough, but answered many questions and provided her peace of mind. Her mom, she said, claimed her marriage was a tumultuous one and when she told her husband she was leaving, he told her she couldn’t take the kids. “My dad knew she left. I would’ve liked if he’d have said something,” Evans said. Her father passed away in the late 1990s and her brother drowned in his teens. During her visit, Lucy gave Evans a traditional First Nations button blanket – a gift intended for a mother’s eldest daughter. The soft-spoken woman showed nothing but love and

kindness, said Evans. “She said she used to think of us, but didn’t know where to start. She said she put it in the back of her mind.” Lucy, who is 77,  hasn’t spoken publicly about her disappearance five decades ago, or her reunion with her daughter. She also didn’t want her photo published. Glenn said she just wants Evans to get to know “mom” and welcomes her new sister to the family with open arms. “If I’d have known, I would have looked her up a long time ago,” said Glenn. “I’ve always wanted a sister, so it’s a dream come true. We’re just glad to have her.” Evans plans to return to the Yukon for another visit in December, and hopes to bring her teenage grandson. Lucy, she said, has many grandkids and great-grandchildren here who she’d like her to meet. Evans’ tale of finding her mother after more than 50 years made headlines across the country and even overseas this summer. It’s all been very surreal, she said. “It turned out, so I’m happy. It’s not all the time it works out so well.”

Kaslo

Council slams Interior Health management By K. Hildebrand Nelson Star

Submitted photo

Barry and Sonja Schmidt of Genelle would like to announce the marriage of their daughter, Desiree Schmidt to Robert Borsato, son of John and Cathy Borsato of Fruitvale. The ceremony took place at the Summerhill Winery in Kelowna on July 20, 2013. After a honeymoon to Waikiki, the newlyweds are residing in Castlegar.

Kaslo village council has officially stated it has no confidence in Interior Health’s senior management. At their regular council meeting held last week, they passed a formal non-confidence resolution after the health authority recently announced it would end 24-7 emergency room services for Kaslo. Mayor Greg Lay explained the community spent a year working with IH trying to find solutions a doctor shortage that has forced periodic closures of the Kaslo ER. “At the end of that year, Interior Health came back to us with nothing,” he said. “No change in ambulance service, no change in paramedics, no change in nurse practitioners, no change in contracts for physicians…” Efforts included commissioning of the Ross Report in which

“The way the hospital is being managed needs to be evaluated” Greg Lay

Dr. John Ross, a Nova Scotia physician and expert on rural health, explored the current state of health care in Kaslo. Among other things, Ross suggested ER services be maintained using remote physician support of a nurse practitioner. “He is one of Canada’s well-known and respected doctors in the area of rural medicine and his report was really not embraced in the manner in which we expected,” said Lay. Since the report came out last month, IH proposed the ER at the Victorian Community Health Centre be reduced to

the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday with after-hour and weekend coverage provided by Nelson and Trail hospitals. Lay says the community doesn’t accept this and will continue to look for solutions. But they plan on going it alone, outside the framework of the health authority. “The way the hospital is being managed needs to be evaluated,” he said. The mayor says medical staff at the Victorian Community Health Centre is doing a “really good job” despite working for an organization “that doesn’t understand the rural health care

Creston

Village approves brewery rezoning By Lorne Eckersley Creston Advance

After twice delaying a decision on a rezoning application for a 14th  Avenue property Creston town council voted unanimously to pass the bylaw’s third reading on Friday. A third day of public hearings proved a charm for the Columbia Brewery, which has an offer to purchase a parcel of adjacent property, conditional

on its rezoning from residential to light industrial. Final approval of the rezoning will allow the brewery to construct a railway spur on its property that will provide for the storage of four railcars, two each holding malt and syrup. Brewery manager Murray Oswald estimates the four cars will provide for four or five days of brewing at peak capacity. The third meeting included

a key change to the brewery’s proposal, increasing the distance of the rail line to neighbouring residences. Town manager Lou Varela reported that staff recommended approval of the application with conditions including “a site plan, developed to the satisfaction of staff, detailing a separation between the centre of the proposed line and adjacent residential construction.

situation” or how to secure doctors with an attractive contract. “I think that we’re going to get into the doctor recruitment business because we don’t think they’ve done a very good job, quite frankly,” he said. New Denver and Creston have found ways to recruit doctors keeping their clinics operating, he added. Lay said mayors in rural outposts like Kaslo are concerned about the vitality of their communities with medical coverage lacking. He sees seniors leaving “If you are trying to create employment in a community or attract investors, and you tell

them you don’t have 24-7 emergency care services, they’re moving to the next town,” he said. “They’re not going to raise their families in an environment where they don’t have that sense of security.” Lay said seniors are also leaving Kaslo for better medical care. The citizens of Kaslo have been on a letter writing campaign and Lay says there are over 200 letters supporting 24-7 coverage on their way to the authorities. “We are not laying down in front of these guys,” he said. “We want to find solutions and that means compromise and that means change.”

REgional Change of seasons Enrolment up at Selkirk College The Nelson Star Selkirk College’s fall enrolment is showing an increase. Final semester calculations will be compiled for the end of October, but the annual September headcount reveals a 3.6 per cent increase in domestic students and a 21 per cent increase in international students. “Although we are seeing enrolment fluctuations in a number of programs, there are also some clear positive signs,” says vice-president Neil Coburn. “For example, we have the strongest Engineering enrolment in a dozen years. But the enrolment highlight is definitely a new online program serving pharmacy technicians across Canada. The September NAPRA [National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities] bridging program intake had more than 330 registrants. We expect even stronger registrations for the January intake.” The Engineering program falls under the University Arts and Sciences department based in Castlegar and is part of Selkirk College’s emphasis of giving students an excellent start in a rural setting. There have been some programs seeing enrolment declines. Business enrolment fluctuates year-over-year though job prospects for graduates remain good. The Aviation program is experiencing decreased enrolment due to more competition for students including a new program starting in the Lower Mainland. Selkirk College is mirroring a general trend in rural post-secondary education with enrollment down in the University Arts. In total there are 2,155 students currently registered in Selkirk College programs.

The Trail Stingrays Swim Club is hosting a community event in hopes of raising funds for its upcoming swim season. Dubbed as “Stage Fright,” the Halloween-themed event features magician and fundraising guru John Kaplan for two shows at the Fruitvale Memorial Hall on Saturday. His performances include a variety of music, dance, comedy, and of course magic that have thrilled and delighted audiences across North America for the past 20 years. Kaplan, of Abracadabra Show Productions Inc., combines performances and fundraising to help community organizations reach their project goals. His family-friendly show includes audience participation, incredible illusions, and stunning effects, and also is a fun way to raise money for community groups like the Greater Trail Stingrays

Swim Club. “Eighty per cent of what I do is community oriented,” said Kaplan in a release. “What I want is to create a first-class stage show but I would also like to keep those roots.

Saints stay perfect: blank Vikes

By Times Contributor The Selkirk College Saint’s hockey team remain undefeated after shutting out the University of Victoria Vikings 5-0 on Friday. After a scoreless first period, the Saints found their stride in the second and got on the board early when former Trail Smoke Eater Logan Proulx slammed home a rebound less than two minutes in.

The Saints’ captain doubled the lead minutes later and went up 3-0 when Scott Swiston set up linemate Beau Taylor on a nifty back-door feed to beat UVic starter Sunny Gill. Connor McLaughlin picked up his third point of the night when he converted on a third period breakaway and another Trail product, Garrett Kucher, netted his first as a Saint with 8.1 seconds remaining.

Rosebud Lake is a great go-to autumn still-water fishery south of Salmo, particularly in the later months as the weather cools, and trout feed heavily in readiness for winter.

West Kootenay

Fishing Report

The West Kootenay Fishing Report offers tips on how to catch fish on local lakes and streams. Area Lakes: With sunny autumn weather, fishing local lakes has been comfortable if not productive of late. As the water temperature cools, fish move into the shallow water and feed heavily on fall favourites like damsel and dragonfly nymphs, scuds, shrimp, leeches, chironomids, and water boatmen in preparation for the long winter. These invertebrate creatures live in the shoal or drop-off zones of lakes, in water less than 20-feet deep, and often the best fishing can be had close to shore in six-feet of water or less. Rosebud Lake south of Salmo is a great fallfishing lake. I’ve watched large rainbow cruise the shallows, feeding aggressively in two feet of water, and caught some of my biggest Rosebud trout in October and November. Eventually, however, with the falling temperatures, the water in area lakes cool and become uniform throughout creating a phenomenon called “turnover.” Combined with wind and current, the lake mixes stirring up plant matter and debris, turning the water murky, and the fish off for anywhere between five-to-10 days. While it benefits the still-water habitat, it means anglers should pass on the lake for a while and head to higher or lower elevations where it has already occurred or is yet to happen, such as low-lying lakes like Summit and Box Lake near Nakusp, or higher ones such as Champion and Nancy Greene Lakes. Technique and tackle: Lures with fluorescent orange or red colouration work well at this time of year. Fly fishers should consider using leech, shrimp, bloodworm (chironomid larva), dragonfly nymph and water boatman patterns

on a floating fly line in combination with varying leader lengths and weighted or unweighted flies. Kootenay Lake: The water has finally cooled down and our fall fishing has begun. While most people were a little bit frustrated with the weather for the last half of September, we as fishermen were excited to see a cooling trend. And now with some snow in the mountains, we can expect our lake to gradually cool down to the magic temperature for our fish. During the hot summer, these fish become a bit lethargic and only seem to come up and feed once in a while. But when the water temperature hits that magic number, the fish begin to become very active and will be feeding on a regular basis. My favorite time of year is coming up. We have been fishing fairly steady now for the past couple weeks and things are looking good. Lately our days have consisted of five to 15 fish each day. Mostly smaller fish so far, but the big ones will follow soon. Our biggest Rainbow in the past week has been 13 pounds, but I did hear of one fish landed over 20. So, things are looking up. What are they biting on? Since the fish are still in the transition stage, we have been fishing both on the surface and down deep. A lot of smaller fish are being caught on the surface with our usual bucktail flies.  We should be able to establish a pattern over the next few weeks, but lately we’ve been doing well on the #210, 214, and 233.  Colors being black and white, grey and white, and black and yellow. Also Apex lures and Lyman plugs have been working, with blues, grays, and black-silver, having the most success. And on the downriggers, the same old stuff.   Flasher and hoochie combo or Lyman plugs at depths from 50-100 feet seem to be working best. We’ll know more as the season progresses. The fall derby season kicked off with the Woodbury Rainbow derby over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. Upcoming is the Nelson City Police Fishing Derby going this Saturday and Sunday, and the Kaslo Rainbow Derby scheduled for Nov. 9-11. Definitely my favorite time of year.  So, let’s get out there.

NOW E!! AVAILABL

for Broncos’ QB

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Just two years removed from the neck troubles that weakened his right arm but strengthened his resolve, Peyton Manning is off to the best start by any quarterback in NFL history. He returns to Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday a much better player than the one who left Indianapolis teary-eyed in 2012 after the Colts let him go in favour of Andrew Luck. Manning has four terrific targets in Denver to go with the skill, intellect, work ethic and determination he’s always had. With Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and Julius Thomas sharing the catches, the unbeaten Broncos are averaging an eye-popping 42 points a game. Manning has thrown for a record 22 TDs in

the first six weeks, and Knowshon Moreno is keeping defences honest with a league-leading seven TD runs. Manning loves dissecting defences and poring over game film but hates digging deep into his own psyche to decipher what makes him tick. Listen closely to some of his words, though: “I love practicing every day.” “I’m still learning.” “By no means do I have everything figured out.” This from the fourtime MVP who narrowly missed out on a fifth last year. Most quarterbacks blowing out 37 candles on their birthday cake tire of the tedium of meetings, practices and workouts. They start daydreaming about life after football. Not Manning. “Everybody enjoys playing in an NFL football game, but I still enjoy the preparation, the work ... and being

effective,” Manning said. Take him out of his comfort zone, put him in a new city with a new team. It’s the perfect challenge. The beauty of Peyton Manning is his beautiful mind. NBC football analyst Cris Collinsworth said the line he hears most from opponents is “he’s playing chess when most of us are playing checkers.” “I think that’s really his No. 1 asset,” added Tony Dungy, Collinsworth’s colleague and Manning’s former coach. “He is so smart, he’s got such a great memory, such great recall.” Collinsworth said he studies harder for Manning’s games than any other ones “because I don’t want to look stupid. Because I know that he’s going to do something where I’m going to go, ‘Now, what just happened there?”’ A football junkie, Manning is consumed by this passion for

preparation. “His focus is on one thing and that’s trying to figure out a way to help our team win that last game,” offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase said. So, when a downpour hit Denver during the fourth quarter of the Broncos’ last preseason game, Manning grabbed a ball and started throwing on the sideline. He wasn’t warming up to go back in, but “just working on his wet-ball mechanics,” Fox explained. The Broncos didn’t retreat to their indoor practice facility during a recent snowstorm but bundled up and went outside in preparation for more coldweather games like the one last January when

the Broncos were upset by Baltimore on a 13-degree night, their only loss in their last 18 games. Manning is driven by that defeat, and his determination to make up for it shows in his precision passes. He’s completing a careerhigh 76 per cent of his throws. Defences can’t double all four of his main targets. “Somebody’s going to be 1-on-1,” Demaryius Thomas said. “But Peyton also likes to say, ‘I don’t care if you do get doubled, you’ve got to figure some way to get open.’ And so I do. We all do. That’s the great thing about Peyton. He makes everyone around him smarter.” And better.

Ti-Cats secure playoff spot

THE CANADIAN PRESS The CFL playoffs have come early for Henry Burris and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Hamilton, like all CFL teams, has three regular-season games remaining. But the Ticats (8-7) head into their home-and-home series with Montreal (6-9) needing one more victory to clinch a home playoff date. “This is pretty much the playoffs right now,” Burris said following Hamilton’s 24-18 home win over Toronto on Monday. “Everyone is vying for playoff position.” They certainly are. Only Toronto (9-6) and Hamilton (8-7) have clinched East Division playoff spots. Third-place Montreal (6-9) missed do so Monday by losing 34-27 to Winnipeg (3-15). Hamilton hasn’t won a home playoff game since 2001. The West Division playoff picture

is somewhat clearer as Calgary, B.C. and Saskatchewan have qualified but all are still battling for final positions. The Stampeders (league-best 12-3 record) are assured of a home playoff game but can clinch first - and home field for the conference final - with a road win Friday over arch-rival Edmonton (3-15) and B.C. downing Saskatchewan on Saturday. Second place - and home-field advantage for the West semifinal - is still undecided between Saskatchewan (10-5) and B.C. (9-6). They meet Saturday at Mosaic Stadium and a Riders’ win would not only give them the season series 2-1 but also a home playoff date. B.C. and Saskatchewan will play their final two regular-season games against Edmonton and Calgary so Saturday’s contest could carry added significance.

wondering whether I should take it down a notch and enjoy whatever time we have left together, or walk away. -- Confused and Sad Dear Confused: If you’ve been dating for a year, you are already “in a relationship” whether he acknowledges it or not. He believes making it official is akin to a pre-engagement, and he’s not ready for that. If you enjoy being with him, feel free to continue and use the time to “start thinking about marriage.” Relationships don’t come with guarantees. Only time will help you decide. But until there is a commitment in place, we suggest

person and asking for an explanation. No response. I no longer care to reconcile, but I would still like an explanation. -- Too Late To Try Again Dear Too: We’re sorry you have been stonewalled, but this is not uncommon. Of course, it would be nice if she would tell you why you’ve been cut off, giving you the opportunity to explain or apologize. And there is nothing wrong with giving a blanket apology, not necessarily for wrongdoing, but for somehow damaging the relationship, even unintentionally. But too many people believe that spelling out the reason would be more damaging than silence, or they may subscribe to the mindreading school, thinking you should “know” the reason. The fact that no other person will intercede on your behalf indicates there is little hope of reconcili-

ation or of finding the explanation you desire. Accept it and move on. Dear Annie: Tell “Trying To Get Granny To Shower” that for around $200, Granny’s bathtub can be made safe and easy. A shower seat is just the beginning. Add a hose exten-

sion to the showerhead so she can direct the flow where she wants it and not have water get in her face. Then install a pole that extends from floor to ceiling just outside the tub so she can hold on as she gets in and out. I ordered mine through

No explanation, nothing. Suddenly I’m persona non grata. I tried to talk to her and asked what I had done. I told her that if she would just discuss it with me, I would apologize, if necessary, although I won’t apologize for something I don’t know I’ve done. I just found out that this person is now a grandmother. I posted a congratulatory message on her Facebook page, and now I’m blocked.

He says it’s because he hasn’t started his career yet. He also thinks we are too young to be thinking about marriage, and I agree with that.
