Happy Halloween!

Revelstokians tend to go all out for Halloween – whether it’s decorating their homes or dressing up in elaborate costumes. We went around town to look for the homes with the best decorations outside, and our favorites ended up being a block apart on Second Avenue near Charles Street. We also went to the annual Team Gloria Halloween Spooktacular. For photos from there, see pages 10–11. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

IPP developer to divest from Moses, Begbie Creek projects BC Hydro misdirects general media enquiry to IPP proponent, raising conflict questions. The result? BC Hydro engineer serving as director in IPP companies to divest directorship, equity in local projects. Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

A BC Hydro engineer who is the developer of the Begbie Creek independent power project (IPP) and co-developer of the Moses Creek IPP will divest himself of directorship and partnership roles in companies developing the local IPPs due to a perceived conflict of interest. Bruce Granstrom, a Revelstoke-based senior engineer with BC Hydro, has been involved with these and at least two other local IPP projects in the past decade, but will now resign following an unusual turn of events last week. The resignation notice came in a media statement from BC Hydro sent on Oct. 25. The impetus for the resignation is an Oct. 20 email inquiry from the Times Review to Revelstoke-based BC Hydro spokesperson Jennifer Walker-Larsen. “I have a question about BC Hydro employees developing IPP projects. Can you give me a ring?” wrote the Times Review in a preliminary enquiry to Walker-Larsen. A response from Bruce Granstrom came the next morning, when he emailed noting Walker-Larsen had passed the message along to him. The muddied line of communication was immediately a concern; is it appropriate for the public utility’s communica-

tions department to pass along media and other stakeholder enquiries to the developer of IPP projects – especially general enquiries not even referencing the proponent? Is the problem exacerbated in a rural office where BC Hydro employees work closely together? Is it appropriate for a BC Hydro senior engineer, who earned remuneration of $121,283 from the Crown corporation in 2011/12, to be a director and partner in a company whose business model is to sell private power back to BC Hydro? That Bruce Granstrom has been involved in local IPP projects is no secret. He’s been referenced in Times Review stories as far back as 2011 in projects such as the proposed IPP project on Begbie Creek, and more recently the Moses Creek IPP project. The Moses Creek project was in the news due to a public referral that came to Revelstoke City Council on Oct. 8. Part of that project is within city limits and will need city zoning consideration. In past stories, Granstrom told our reporters he was a consultant on the projects. A corporate registry search showed that Granstrom is the director of Streamflow Energy Inc., which is developing the Begbie Creek IPP project. He is one of two listed directors of Moses Creek Power Inc., along with Alex Szirmai. Both are small-scale, run-of-river power projects. Grans-

trom is also listed in McKay Creek Power Company partnership dissolution papers filed in late 2008 with the B.C. Ministry of Finance registry service. Granstrom was also involved in the Akolkolex hydro project. In an interview with the Times Review, Granstrom said he had cleared his involvement with the projects through an internal BC Hydro code of conduct process. Granstrom said he studied micro-hydro in university and had been involved in consulting on projects as far back as 1992. “It’s a very specialized field,” he said. Granstrom said he worked with “friends and acquaintances” on local projects they’d like to develop. He said he’d taken steps to avoid the media spotlight on the projects as part of an effort to adhere to BC Hydro code of conduct rules. “I have an obligation to my employer not to be in the media … making them come up in the media in a negative way.” In an Oct. 25 written statement, Chris O’Riley, B.C. Hydro Executive Vice-President of Generation, concurred that Granstrom, “received the appropriate approvals from management and our ethics office.” Employees can pursue outside work, investments and contracts on their own time, O’Riley said, as long as they use

After one year, Revelstoke Climbing Co-op moving forward Alex Cooper

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Revelstoke Climbing Co-op is moving forward with a new board and renewed focus one year after it’s formation. The co-op held its first annual general meeting at Benoit’s Wine Bar last Tuesday, Oct. 22, at which director Mark Hartley laid out the status of the group. The climbing co-op was formed in 2012 with the aim of supporting rock climbing in Revelstoke – notably developing an indoor bouldering gym and advocating for climbing issues such as access and development of climbing areas. The focus in it’s first year was develop a bouldering gym, but the group is not much closer to that goal now than it was a year ago. They received funding from the Columbia Basin Trust to develop a bouldering gym in a building at Second and Orton, but returned the money after issues with the proposed space turned up. The co-op is now looking into funding from the tourism infrastructure fund, but the issue of a space remains. “If we have a plan, I don’t see why they wouldn’t give us a chunk

of change,” Hartley told about 30 people who attended the AGM. “The catch with that is it has to be attractive to tourists. It has to make people stay in town an extra day, another night in a hotel, to justify

them giving us money. A little cave in a garage isn’t going to do that. We’ve come full circle.” Hartley said the co-op has looked into a number of locations, both private and public, but the

search for a space continues. The group also wants to focus on access issues for climbers, particularly for climbing areas alongside the Trans-Canada Highway like the Columbia Buttress and the Victor

Lake Wall; and the Begbie Bluffs, where Hartley said there was talk of re-opening a nearby quarry. Begbie Bluffs and Shaketown are both designated recreation sites with some level of protection, but other local climbing areas aren’t. Moving forward, the co-op formed a new board consisting of Hartley, Darek Glowacki, Chris Gooliaff, Adam Winterton, Mireille Dufour, and Meghan Anderson. Different committees were set up to look at fundraising, grant writing, access, issues and the bouldering gym. The gym remains the big push, said Hartley following the meeting. They are looking for a space with at least 16-foot high ceilings. If they are successful with receiving tourism infrastructure funding, they would need to build a facility that would attract tourists, and that would mean even higher ceilings. – up to 40 feet. They will also be working on access issues, said Hartley. “I think some people are keen to start developing relationships with the MInistry of Forests, the BC Climbing Access Society and Parks Canada, to make sure we’re connected if issues of access come up.”

Hydro conduct review approved employee involvement, but ‘perceived conflict’ remained from page 1 their own resources, don’t use confidential Hydro information, and don’t harm Hydro interests – amongst other requirements. O’Riley stated that, despite the official approval, “I recognize that a perceived conflict still existed. As of today, the employee has advised me that he will divest himself of all equity in and directorship of the hydroelectric development projects he was a part of. I think this was the right decision for him to make.” Granstrom was not available for a follow-up interview after the BC Hydro statement; it’s unclear what will happen to the ongoing IPP projects. The Times Review filed a series

of follow-up questions with BC Hydro, but answers weren’t available by press time.

Opposition energy critic plans Revelstoke open house B.C. New Democratic energy critic John Horgan played down the resignation, saying he respected O’Riley, and felt that conflict rules at the Crown corporation were adequate. Horgan said the BC Liberals have mismanaged BC Hydro, noting documents leaked in early September pointing to a 26 per cent Hydro rate hike in in the next few years, adding more than $260 to

the average B.C. family’s electricity bill. Horgan said IPP contracts were a contributing factor driving up electricity bills. “The Liberals say there’s a need for infrastructure and we have to invest now, and that’s partly true. But the numbers are fairly graphic. You’re buying power at $124 a megawatt hour, and the spot market price is about $25. You can’t continue to do that year after year after year.” He said the recent government announcement that 11 IPP projects had been suspended and another eight are under review are an admission of the problematic and costly structure of the private power. Horgan said the liquid natural gas (LNG) rush in northern B.C.

makes determining the province’s actual electricity needs difficult, and the problem is exacerbated by political interference with BC Hydro and the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC). “There is confusion in the marketplace when it comes to electricity. Overlaying the top of this is BC Hydro’s plan (the BC Hydro Integrated Resource Plan) – which is a 20-year document that the Liberals dumped on a Friday afternoon in August. The response period is over. It’s not going to the [BCUC], it’s going to cabinet,” Horgan said. The Integrated Resource Plan consultation period ran from Sept. 3 to Oct. 18. “The same boneheads that have been making decisions – the cabi-

net of the B.C. Liberal party for the past 13 years – are going to sign off on a document that the [BCUC] doesn’t get a sniff at. That doesn’t make a lot of sense.” Horgan said he is planning a tour of the region and will appear at a public open house with Columbia River–Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald in late November or early December. “I hope people will come out and … talk about these challenges and what we can do to fix them. First and foremost, my mom used to say, ‘If you’re in a hole, the best thing to do is stop digging. I think that’s something that BC Hydro should want to take heed of as well.’”

TIME TO SWITCH!

Revelstoke City Council has asked a city economic development committee to explore options to help Mt. Begbie Brewing Co. keep their proposed new brewery in Revelstoke. As reported in the Oct. 23 Times Review, the Revelstoke brewing company wants to build a new $1.5–2 million brewery here, but brewery owners feel Revelstoke’s commercial property taxation is so high it is prohibitive. Company president Bart Larson said locating the new brewery in Salmon Arm is a “last resort” but is on the table. At their Oct. 22 council meeting, city councillors agreed they wanted a new brewery built in Revelstoke, but the question was how to get there. Coun. Chris Johnston wanted to be mindful of fairness and legality in the city’s response, and was concerned about “biased or favoured treatment.” He advocated for a solution that “is consistent for people coming to the community.” Coun. Tony Scarcella advocated for action, saying taxes had proliferated under this council. “We don’t need a professor of mathematics to figure that out. We’ve got to take action right now. We can’t afford to lose this kind of business in town.” Coun. Steve Bender wondered if council had already set an example when council reduced taxes for Downie Timber during past budget sessions. “Did we set a precedent and how does it figure into this now?” In recent budget cycles, Downie advocated for reduced taxes; however, the mill is the only industrial property in Revelstoke in the heavy industrial tax category, so the tax reductions didn’t have the same fairness issues. Bart Larson addressed questions from council at the meeting, saying he hoped to begin construction next summer, so moving forward quickly is important. “We’re pretty much at the ceiling of production in our existing facility. A new brewery is something I would really like to do,” Larson said. “It’s going to be

something that’s going to become an issue for us pretty soon – not being able to grow.” He hoped for a decision within a month, saying he just needed a “yes or a no.” He added he didn’t have real estate secured, and potential lots could be sold at any time. Mayor David Raven said he wanted the new brewery to be built in Revelstoke. “I would really, really love to see this go ahead,” the mayor said. He added later that any solution would need a proper “legal framework.” In the end, council agreed to refer the issue to its economic development committee and city staff for consideration of ways to move forward. They requested a speedy turnaround and report back. In an interview outside the meeting, Larson said a move to Salmon Arm isn’t his preference: “That would be a very tough decision. It is not something [we] would come to lightly. I moved to Revelstoke for a reason. I am a Revelstoke boy. That’s where I want to be,” Larson said. “It would have to be a last resort.”

Larson, who is from Revelstoke, holds a PhD in physics and worked as a researcher in nuclear physics before deciding to make his brewing hobby a full-time job. He relocated back to his home town to open Mt. Begbie Brewing Co. Larson agreed that council’s path forward on his request isn’t clear-cut. “I don’t know it would be fair to give us a tax break,” Larson said. “Taxes are high, is basically what I am saying in my letter.” The discussion was prompted by a letter to council from Larson. He didn’t have suggestions as to the kind of concession he is seeking, saying it’s up to the city to make proposals. Larson said designing a new building that can properly accommodate tours and tourist amenities is part of their reason for the expansion. The Times Review will update this story when staff present options to council in the coming weeks. There was some discussion about the possibility of linking into provincial development programs.

Open house to explore options for Mountain View They include seven high or very high priorities such as maintaining green space, developing affordable housing, incorporating community use into decisions about repurposing the old school, exploring heritage designation, and considering the opportunities for conversion as an arts centre, conference centre, or condo conversion. “There’s lots of interest so I would expect the Nov. 16 open house would get lots of feedback,” said Alan Chell, the chair of the school board. The report also pegs the price of restoring the historic school building at $1.5–2.5 million, depending on the proposed use. “It’s clearly a substantial investment to be considered with what to do with that building,” said Hooker. The school is not designated as a heritage building; Luxton is working on a statement of significance to have the building added to the heritage registry.

Alex Cooper

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

An open house will be held on Nov. 16 to solicit public feedback on plans for the Mountain View Elementary site. “It’s an opportunity to see where the plans are going, what kind of feedback we’ve already received, and we continue to seek more feedback,” said superintendent Mike Hooker. Several options for re-development will be shown at the open house. They all include keeping the heritage school building and maintaining some park space and a playground. The school district has been working with consultants Donald Luxton to develop plans for the new school site. A report presented to the Revelstoke Board of Education last week looks at the community priorities in the Integrated Community Sustainability Plan that relate to the school.

The open house is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m at the community centre Meanwhile, the city has submitted applications to re-zone and subdivide the former Big Eddy Elementary site, and is waiting for City Hall to complete the applications. “We’re really appealing to the city to get moving on our request,” said Hooker. “They’re slow, they said they’re sorry they’re slow and it isn’t happening and we’re behind, and that’s about where we’re at.”

Enrollment drops below 1,000 Revelstoke School District enrollment is down to less than 1,000 students, with declines at every school except Columbia Park Elementary. There are 239 students at Begbie View Elementary (down from 257), 207 students at Columbia Park Ele-

mentary (up from 202 students) and 114 students at Arrow Heights Elementary (down from 126). There are exactly 400 students at Revelstoke Secondary School, including 11 international students. Despite all that, the class sizes have remained fairly stable, said superintendent Mike Hooker. The average class size for kindergarten is 16.7, for grades 1–3 is 19.8, for grades 4–7 is 25.1, and for grades 8–12 is 22.2. “Our class size at the high school is really outstanding, to have that low a class size,” Hooker said, noting that RSS was still able to offer a full range of courses despite the continuing decline in enrollment. “That is a struggle for small schools to offer a full range of courses in things like shop class, drama, to things like Physics 12 and Calculus 12,” he said. “Those are things small schools struggle with and we’re still managing to provide those for students.”

At Arrow Heights, the low enrollment has meant the school only has five classes, which are all split grades. Grades four and five, and grade six and seven, have both been combined into one class. At Begbie View, there are nine straight grade and three split classes and Columbia Park has five straight grades and four split classes. Hooker said having split grades can be an advantage when placing some students. “There are kids who will fit better for different reasons and will be better off in a one or a one/two,” he said. “So you organize the class in that way and you say that have the choice between classes is a great opportunity because that offers us more choice in how to group kids. “When we’re making the classes up, that gives more choice for the teachers to see where is the kid at, what does he need.”

Avalanche Centre issues warning about smartphone apps and SnoWhere. The CAC says the applications have issues with compatibility and frequency range. All avalanche transceivers use a frequency of 457 kHz regardless of brand, the CAC says, and the apps are incapable of communicating with other transceivers. “Not only are these new apps incapable of connecting with other avalanche transceivers, they are also incompatible between themselves, so one type of app can’t find another,” said CAC Executive Director Gilles Valade in a state-

ment. Smartphones don’t transmit well through snow, the CAC says. The iSis app claims to automatically detect freefall and avalanches, and will create a Bluetooth signal that will send an alert to a list of pre-entered people. It uses GPS to pinpoint your location. The Snøg Avalanche Buddy uses the phones WiFi to send out a signal to other Snog users. It pinpoints your location based on the strength of the WiFi signal. SnoWhere sends a WiFi signal to other SnoWhere users and uses

l

GPS to provide a location. The iSis and SnoWhere apps are only available for iPhone, while the Snøg Avalanche Buddy is only available for Android phones. They don’t come close to matching the 457 kHz standard adopted by the transceiver industry, says Valade. “WiFi and Bluetooth signals are significantly weakened when passing through snow, and easily deflected by the solid objects we expect to see in avalanche debris,” he said. “And the accuracy of a GPS signal is nowhere near the pre-

cision required for finding an avalanche victim. ” The CAC also expressed concern about the battery life, robustness, reliability and interference. Cellphones also have the ability to interfere with avalanche transceivers. Two recent studies by researchers show that transceivers should be at least 20 centimetres away from electronic devices when in send mode, and at least 50 centimetres away when in search mode. Interference between transceiver signals and Bluetooth and WiFi signals has been documented.

Notes from the Oct. 22 Revelstoke City Council meeting. The City of Revelstoke bargained CP Rail down to a maximum of $10,000 for the removal of the two railway crossing towers at the Victoria Road and Fourth Street intersection. As reported by the Times Review in August, CP Rail wanted $14,000 from the city, half the cost of removing the two large crossing signal towers, but city council balked and asked for a better deal. Railway regulations say the railway company must do the work, and there is a ‘bluebook’ that sets rates. CP Rail determined the signal towers were no longer necessary because trains rarely cross the intersection, which is part of an unused line that went to the Downie Street sawmill. From now on, rail crews will do traffic control man-

ually when they have to back trains across the road to switch tracks. They came down on Monday, Oct. 21 where a total of at least 10 workers, traffic control personnel and others wearing hardhats took down the towers. At Revelstoke City Council’s Oct. 22 meeting, CAO Tim Palmer said city staff had negotiated the “maximum” cost of $10,000 to the city. The traffic control towers are headed to the museum at the Three Valley Gap resort. A city engineering report said removing the towers would be a safety bonus because they create visual clutter and possibly driver confusion at the already challenging and dangerous intersection.

CHIEFS TO MEET ON PROTECTIVE SERVICE LEVELS Revelstoke City Council opted to call a meeting between police and fire services to discuss

emergency responder service levels in the community. The decision forestalled a series of recommendations on fire department service levels that was on the council table. “This gives us a unique opportunity to work with Staff-Sgt. Grabinsky … and establish service levels with the police department, the RCMP as well as Fire Rescue Services and Chief Girard,” said Coun. Phil Welock, who oversees emergency services in his role as councillor. “We all know that our protective services budget is under scrutiny and it is quite high and I think the issue for the most part is overtime, and overtime is what drives service levels.” Mayor David Raven objected to the idea, saying it was “going in circles” and would delay budget discussions. He said a consultant had already completed a report on the department. Council opted to call the protective services organizations in for a meeting.

Revelstoke does Halloween right! The Times Review stopped by the Halloween Spooktakular on Oct. 26 to help get you in the spirit and give you fair warning: Revelstoke goes all-out, so get your costume idea together now! 1. The Incredible Hulk keeps mellow on the dance floor. 2. If you’re going to try to pull off the bathrobe as a Halloween costume, you better at least get a bit naked underneath, like Jordan and John. 3. Jesse was master of the safari, bagging Revelstoke snow zebra Kaylee despite leaving his elephant gun at home. 4. Get your Jell-o shots and then get back or bartender Valerie will eat your brains. 5 Isabelle, Sascha and Captain Jordan set sail on a Halloween voyage. 6. Kaylee and Steve avoid orange in their opposite black and white outfits. 7. Incredible family act Luke and Tony get into it. 8. Cheryl and Rachel. 9. Mountie Shaun fights the right to party by cuffing and stuffing Kyle, who came as the late Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch. 10. Cotton candy-haired Valerie and Kassandra were just back from the slaughter. ­— Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review

Grizzlies falter after promising start to week reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

It looked to be a turning point in the season. A sign that the Revelstoke Grizzlies, mired near the bottom of the league, were about to get their season back on the track. They beat the Kimberley Dynamiters, one of the KIJHL’s top teams, 5-4 on Thursday in what was easily the team’s best game of the season. And then hit the road and got thumped 6-0 by the Princeton Posse and 7-3 by the Osoyoos Coyotes. Thursday’s game appeared to be a mismatch with the Grizzlies – second to last overall – taking on the Dynamiters, who were in fourth place overall. Brodie Buhler got Revelstoke on the board 89 seconds into the game with a somewhat lucky goal that bounced up and over Kimberley goaltender Jeremy Mousseau. The score stayed 1-0 when Jason Richter scored a power play goal for Kimberley after a scramble in front of Aaron Brandoli to tie the game. Revelstoke got a chance to go ahead when it received a 5-on-3 late in the second period. The game appeared to be headed into the intermission even, but Aiden Silzer-Hooker wound up with a blistering slapshot to beat Mousseau and the buzzer and give Revelstoke a 2-1 lead. Revelstoke carried the momentum into the third period, with Silzer-Hooker scoring his second power play goal of the game, and Jeremy McGregor, a recent acquisition from Grand Forks, scoring his first as a Grizzly to make it 4-1. Revelstoke appeared to be cruising towards a win when they got into penalty trouble. Buhler was in the box when Andrew Stack scored for Kimberley to make it 4-2, and Kent Hendrickson was in the box when Jared Marchi got the Dynamiters within one. The Grizzlies killed off a four minute penalty but Tyson Klingspohn scored for Kimberley to even the game not long after the penalty was over. That left it for Silzer-Hooker to play the hero, scoring his third power play goal of the game on a point shot right off a faceoff to put Revelstoke ahead. The Grizzlies would hang on for a 5-4 win.

On Friday the team hit the road to play the Princeton Posse, who were mired in the basement of the Okanagan Division. Eden Dubchak opened the scoring for Princeton with a short-handed goal at 13:08 of the first period. Eric Kubis made it 2-0 with a power play goal at 14:31 of the second. Dalton Dubetz gave the Posse a 3-0 lead when he scored with six minutes left in the period. Princeton added three more goals in the third, with Kurtis Coburn scoring 82 seconds in the period, and Devan Suidy and Eric Schmidt adding power play goals to cap off the 6-0 win. Aaron Brandoli was given the night off in favour of Bryson Mckinnon, who had a rough game, only stopping 22 or 28 shots in the 6-0 loss. On Saturday, Revelstoke travelled southeast on highway three to face the Osoyoos Coyotes. Devon Hascarl got the Grizzlies on the board first at 17:11 of the first, but Colin Chmelka evened it up with a power play goal with 8:45 to go in the frame. Hascarl restored Revelstoke’s lead about eight minutes into the second with his second in the night, but Chmelka’s second power play goal nullified that advantage. Cameron Dobransky then gave Osoyoo a 3-2 lead at 8:18 of the second, before a flurry of goals in the final two minutes of the period. First, Tre Mason scored a shorthanded goal for Revelstoke, but Jackson DeMatos recorded a power play goal and Michael Crawford made it 5-3 Coyotes with 31 second left. Osoyoos extended their lead when Aaron Azevedo scored 30 seconds into the third. Chmelka sealed the win with Osoyoos’ fourth power play goal of the game with 1:38 left. The two losses leaves Revelstoke with 10 points and in last place in the Doug Birks division, four points back of Sicamous and 100 Mile House for third, and six back of Chase for second. Only Kamloops, with 26 points, appears out of reach for the Grizzlies. The Grizzlies have another three games this weekend. On Friday, they host the North Okanagan Knights at the Forum. On Saturday, the team is Kelowna to battle the Chiefs. On Sunday, they return home to face the Chase Heat in a 5 p.m. matinee game.

Aiden Silzer-Hooker fires a slap shot for the first of his three goals in Thursday’s 5-4 win over the Kimberley Dynamiters. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review

lower than normal revelstoke reservoir levels expected BC Hydro would like to make Revelstoke Reservoir users aware that the reservoir water level may be drawn down well below normal levels from late October to early November, if needed, to meet provincial electricity demands. During this time, inflows into Revelstoke Reservoir from Mica Dam will be reduced. BC Hydro must limit generation at Mica dam to allow workers to safely replace aging switchgear equipment in the underground powerhouse. At the same time, generation is somewhat limited from BC Hydro’s Peace River system due to maintenance outages. Given current conditions and assuming average weather, we may need to lower the reservoir water level below its normal minimum level of 571.5 metres (1,875 feet) starting the week of October 21, 2013. The level could drop as much as 4.6 metres (15 feet) below the normal minimum level by late October 2013. Should such a drop be needed, we would then expect the reservoir to refill back into its normal operating range by mid-November, 2013. If you are planning activities in or around Revelstoke Reservoir please be aware that the water level may be dropping during this period, likely by as much as 2 feet per day but possibly as much as 4 feet per day depending on weather and system conditions. BC Hydro will look for opportunities to limit the magnitude of the water level drop and will closely monitor the Revelstoke Reservoir level during this period. BC Hydro normally operates Revelstoke Reservoir at a fairly constant water level between 571.5 metres (1,875 feet) and 573.02 metres (1,880 feet) to maximize hydraulic head at Revelstoke Dam. However, BC Hydro occasionally operates Revelstoke reservoir at a lower minimum level during cold weather or unusual system conditions.

With much love and sadness, Jim’s family announces his sudden and unexpected passing. A Celebration of Life was held on October 12th in Vanderhoof. Jim leaves to mourn his wife, Dana Stark, son Evan, parents James and Gwen Eadie, brother Dean, in-laws Larry Stark, Candice Stark (Brian), brother-in-law Trevor (Charlene), numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and associates. Jim was born and lived in Revelstoke until he graduated from High School. He then attended Selkirk College in Castlegar and from there went to the University of Alberta and graduated with a Degree in Forestry. He then moved to Vanderhoof and made his home there. He worked for CanFor Forest Industry for many years and then started his own successful forestry consulting business. Jim was well travelled and he loved the outdoors. He especially enjoyed fishing with his son Evan and friends. Jim was an accomplished hockey player and coached many minor hockey teams. His life touched many people and he made many friends. Jim left us and went home to be with the Lord, but the memory of Jim will live in the hearts of his family and friends forever.
