all entrants will receive a USB key with the safety message, “Be the KEY to safe driving.” Learning to drive can be one of the most exciting times in a teenager’s life. However, the freedom that accompanies a driver’s licence comes with the responsibility to learn how to safety navigate the road ahead. The Canada Safety Council offers the following tips to encourage safe driving among young

motorists. • Walk around your vehicle before entering it to check for hazards. • Make adjustments to your seat, mirrors, ventilation system, lock doors, secure any loose objects and put on your seatbelt before you start driving. • Don’t text and drive. Texting while driving increases your chances of being in a collision by 23 times. Find a safe place to pull over if you need to send a message

or make a call. • Never operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication. • Being drowsy also impairs your driving abilities – drive only when rested. • Take driver training courses. • Drive defensively. Celebrate the milestone of learning to drive and remember that prevention through education and awareness is the key to safety.

Energy saving tips for business FortisBC provides some excellent energy-saving tips

Want to lower your energy bill? FortisBC offers these energy saving tips can help improve your bottom line and the environment, too. Control your heat Programmable thermostats, available at hardware stores, will automatically adjust the temperature based on the time and day of the week, so there’s no worry of accidentally leaving the heat on after hours. Save power Turn off computers and other non-essential electronics when not in use and enable ENERGYSTAR® features on all computers. A computer monitor uses up to 75 per cent of the energy powering a computer and other electronics can idle as much as 90 per cent of the workday and are often left running on nights and weekends. Turn off lights when the sun provides enough natural light or when a room is not being used. Caulk and weatherstrip windows and doors If you have fixed, single pane windows, caulk the interior side where the sash meets the frame, as well as where the trim meets the wall. For exterior doors and windows that open, apply weatherstripping where two surfaces meet.

change furnace filters regularly. Clean radiators and baseboard heaters annually to keep them running efficiently. Energy saving tips for your business The type of business you operate plays a role in how you use energy. A retail store and an office building mainly require space heating, whereas a restaurant needs hot water for dishes and cooking. Customize your energy savings Complete an easy 10-minute questionnaire from FortisBC for energy saving recommendations tailored to your business. Find it online at energyrebatecentre.fortisbc.com. At the restaurant Make a splash in reducing your hot water use – go low-flow. Install a low-flow spray valve to pre-rinse dishes. These devices use approximately 50 per cent less water than standard types. Reduce your water heating costs by about two per cent by insu-

lating hot water pipes with foam or rubber insulation. Six feet of insulation costs between $3 and $8 – that’s a quick payback. When it’s time to upgrade, choose the most efficient model. FortisBC offers incentives for high-efficiency water heaters – conditions apply. One leaky faucet or dripping tap can waste a significant quantity of water per month. The majority of energy used in commercial dishwashers is for heating the water. High-efficiency models consume less hot water on the rinse cycles, thereby saving money. At the office Create incentives for staff to save energy. Set up a committee to develop goals and

track progress. Steps may include identifying a team, developing a vision and creating an action plan. On sunny winter days, take advantage of Mother Nature by opening blinds to warm up. Do the opposite in the summer. If working in a larger office, consider installing a locking device on thermostats to prevent the heat from being turned up too high. In the retail store You may think an open door will bring in more customers, but on cold days, it will push your heating costs up. Close the door and keep the heat inside. Customers may already be wearing a coat when they come into your store, so set the

Severe storms crop up in South Cariboo Carole Rooney Free Press

The sighting of what appeared to be a funnel cloud hanging over 100 Mile House on Sept. 6 got some folks thinking back to twisters they have seen, or experienced locally over the years. Environment Canada (EC) meteorologist David Jones works on British Columbia weather patterns. He says a funnel cloud becomes a tornado “of some strength” when it touches the ground. However, Jones looked at a photo of the recent towering cloud formation, and suspects it was simply an unusual cloud pattern, since there were no thunderstorms or severe winds in conjunction with it. “I think it’s a very interesting cloud formation. It does look like there was some kind of rotation, but very localized. “The key [for EC] is – was there any damage? That’s when we really start getting interested when we see photos like this.” However, the South Cariboo can certainly get funnel clouds, he explains, and, therefore, tornadoes. “They are very rare, but they’ll occur when the air is extremely unstable and you get thunderstorms developing into very severe thunderstorms. That happens – there is a risk of [tornadoes] out of any severe thunderstorm.” Locals have spoken of experiencing two twisters about eight to 10 years ago in the South Cariboo. At Deka Lake, a tornado tore a resident’s large dock right off the shore and smashed it to bits, uprooted trees (leaving six-foot-deep holes), and damaged the yard and outbuildings. A similar twister at Rail Lake uprooted trees and damaged cabins. These don’t seem to appear on the EC records, but Jones doesn’t question their

File photo

Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones examined this image of an interesting and unusual cloud formation seen over 100 Mile House on Sept. 6, and deemed it unlikely to have been a funnel cloud.

occurrence. “There’s no doubt, when people’s anecdotal stories say they see a small twister or they get caught with the down-drafts, it is significant weather for sure. But, if they actually end up reporting it or we end up hearing about it – is entirely different.” He adds it is not exactly “tornado alley” in the Interior, but when tornadoes are reported with any evidence, they get recorded by EC on a Fujita scale of F0-F5.

“There have been some F1 to F3 tornadoes [mild to fairly severe], but we typically [predict] one per year in the province.” An F3 storm has winds up to 208 miles per hour and can leave a one-third-ofa-mile-wide path of destruction. However, usually those rated F2-F3 are in the Interior, not on the Coast, where twisters are typically F0-F1 (very weak to weak), Jones explains. He notes the time lapse to escape a funnelcloud-turned-tornado is hard to predict. “When you see a funnel cloud, they typically move from southwest to northeast, or south to north. “So, anytime you see that off to your south or southwest, you’d want to seek some shelter at some safe enclosure. “That’s about the only advice we can give if

that [shelter] is possible. If you are out on a boat in a lake, then you definitely want to get to shore when the sky darkens up and it starts to rain heavily, or hail or the wind picks up.” A twister and a tornado are the same thing, he explains, while a cyclone denotes any storm that rotates in the same direction as the earth turns on its axis. “Cyclone is a general category. Tornadoes, unfortunately, can spin both ways [but not the same tornado]. Jones notes documented storms and all storms – even more severe ones – are two very different things. “We have only got a few weather observing stations that are manned ... where things are observed to begin with. A lot of the stations are now automated, which never pick up any of this.” The EC detailed

records for 1894-2006 listed 48 tornadoes in B.C., and he notes a 2007-12 brief update added just one more in the province, in 2008 (location not available). “This is probably the fifth year in a row without a confirmed report of a tornado.” Original B.C. tornadoes have been recorded by EC in Lac la Hache (June 12, 1926 and April 5, 1991); in Tatton, just west of 108 Mile Ranch (July 9, 1926); 100 Mile House (July 6, 1990) and in Williams Lake (June 28, 1992); Soda Creek (July 5, 1990); in Quesnel (July 16, 2003) and several others in the Chilcotin in 1980s-’90s. Prince George has had the most Interior twisters, having experienced documented tornadoes in 1972, 1976, 1990, 1992 and 1994.

My One Thing initiative makes cancer prevention accessible From 4

Approximately 23,800 new cancer cases are diagnosed every year in B.C. and that figure is set to grow dramatically. There will be a 70 per cent increase in cancers

in the next 20 years unless something changes. While B.C. historically has lower cancer rates than the rest of the country, the CCSBCY states that focusing on prevention is a game changer for the fight

Be A

against cancer. “Imagine if half of the people who are expected to be diagnosed with cancer this year, didn’t receive that diagnosis,” explains Barbara Kaminsky, CCSBCY chief executive officer.

“That’s almost 12,000 people who wouldn’t have to face the realities of battling cancer and countless families and friends would be saved from hearing the life-altering news that a loved one is facing a cancer

diagnosis. Isn’t that worth making one change?” The premise of the initiative is to encourage British Columbians to commit to making one change to reduce their cancer risk – from taking the stairs at

work to eating more vegetables. People are encouraged to write down their one thing and share it through their own social media channels and through www.myone thing.ca.

Flu shot-or-mask rule for health care workers upheld by arbitrator By Tom Fletcher Black Press

Health-care workers and visitors in patient care areas will be required to have the current influenza vaccination or wear a mask when the annual influenza season returns in December. Health-care union objections to the policy were rejected by a labour arbitrator’s ruling last week – a decision Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall called “good news for patients.” The policy can now be enforced for staff across all of British Columbia’s health authorities, particularly in long-term care facilities, Kendall said on Oct. 24. Visitors will be on an “honour system” to keep their flu shots up-to-date or use a mask when they visit friends and relatives, he added. The current influenza vaccine is available from doctors and pharmacies around the province, and is free to those with chronic conditions or who come in contact with people who are at higher risk of serious complications from influenza. To find out if you are eligible for a free vac-

cine, ask your doctor or pharmacist, or call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1. United States healthcare facilities have similar rules and voluntary compliance of staff members is very high, said Kendall, who has been pushing for the restriction for some time. Health employers now have the option of progressive discipline to make sure employees protect against passing on influenza virus to vulnerable patients. “We obviously hope it won’t come to that because we believe that health-care workers do care for their patients.” The Health Sciences Association, union representing lab technicians and other specialists in the healthcare system, had argued its members were entitled to make their own decision on whether to get the annual vaccine. It is formulated each year by international health authorities based on the dominant strains of influenza that are found around the world. Kendall said the arbitrator accepted research findings from the University of Minnesota that found the vaccine

to be 90 per cent effective in years when it is a “good match” with the virus strain that emerges during winter. The study found that a less accurate match causes the effectiveness to drop as low as 40 per cent, but Kendall noted that is better than zero protection, which is what skipping the flu

Free flu shots available

With flu season approaching, public health nurses across Interior Health (IH) are gearing up for this year’s influenza (flu) vaccination campaign. Last year, more than 173,000 seasonal flu shots were provided free of charge to those at risk of complications from the flu. “The World Health Organization [WHO] determines the strains to be included in the annual influenza vaccine based on flu trends worldwide,” says Dr. Rob Parker, IH Medical Health Officer. “This year’s vaccine contains three different flu strains that will offer protection against two influenza A viruses and one influenza B virus. “Getting a flu shot and washing your hands frequently are the two most effective ways to protect yourself and others from getting the flu.” The flu is highly contagious and can cause severe complications for those with heart, lung, and other health problems. Free flu shots are in the South Cariboo. Many physician offices and pharmacies also provide vaccines free to those who are eligible. 100 Mile House Free shots are available at the South Cariboo Health Centre (555D Cedar Ave.) on Nov. 6 for surnames starting with A to L; on Nov. 7 for surnames starting M to Z; and Dec. 5. The clinics run from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. – no appoint-

ment necessary.

Bridge Lake Free shots are available at the Bridge Lake Community School (7567 Bridge Lake Rd.) on Nov. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon – no appointment necessary.

Clinton Free shots are available at the Clinton Wellness Centre (1510 Cariboo Highway) on Nov. 19 from noon to 3:30 p.m. – no appointment necessary. Flu shots are safe, effective, and free for those most at risk of getting the flu and its complications including: • People 65 years and older and their caregivers/household contacts; • People of any age in residential

care facilities; • Children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts; • Children and adolescents (six months to 18 years) with conditions treated for long periods of time with Aspirin (ASA) and their hou s ehol d contacts; • Children and adults who are morbidly obese;

• Aboriginal people; • All children six-59 months of age; • Household contacts and caregivers of infants and children up to 59 months of age; • Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy during the influenza season and their household contacts; • Visitors to hospitals, health centres and residential-care facilities; • People who work with live poultry; • Health-care and other care providers

in facilities and community settings who are capable of transmitting influenza disease to those at high risk of influenza complications; • Individuals who provide care or service in potential outbreak settings housing high risk persons; and • People who provide essential community services (first responders, corrections workers). While flu shots are free for those most at risk, everyone can benefit from the flu shot. People, who are not eligible for the free flu vaccine through the publicly-funded program, should contact their physician, local pharmacy, walk-in clinic, travel clinic, or private provider. For more information, contact your local public health office or visit the IH website at w w w.interiorhealth. ca. Information on the flu shot is also available on the Immunize BC website at www. immunizebc.ca, or on HealthLink BC at www. healthlinkbc.ca.

B.C. sets out new regulations for pesticide use

To be introduced in 2014/15, input on regs sought The B.C. Liberal government is proposing revisions to the Integrated Pest Management Regulation (IMPR) to ensure cosmetic pesticides are being used safely and responsibly. These revisions will require stricter control on the sale and use of pesticides in private landscaped areas, while at the same time, simplify requirements for the sale and use of pesticides commonly considered safe. The proposed changes include the following requirements: • A licence is required in order to apply most pesticides in private landscaped areas. • Licence holders are required to employ trained pesticide applicators and practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). • Residents are to be notified when pesticides are used on private landscaped areas. • A list of pesticides considered safe for use by untrained people will be developed. These pesticides may be sold and applied in a private landscaped area without a licence. These proposed revisions are detailed in a document at www.env. gov.bc.ca/epd/codes/ ipmr/index.htm. On this website, interested British Columbians will have 60 days to fill out a response form and provide comments on specific aspects of this regulation to government. These changes were developed with input

from the public, as well as the bi-partisan Special Committee on Cosmetic Pesticides. The committee released its report on May 17, 2012 and concluded regulations restricting the use of cosmetic pesticides should be tightened, but there was not enough evidence to support an outright ban on the sale of pesticides. These proposed amendments go one step further to ensure pesticides are used responsibly by trained individuals by expanding existing requirements for licensing to include those applying pesticides to private landscaped areas. Municipalities and First Nations with law-making authority will be able to opt out of the requirement for a licence to apply pesticides to private residential properties, not including multi-residence properties, if they so choose. In March 2013, the British Columbia Legislature passed the Miscellaneous Statutes Amendment Act. The act included a change to the Integrated Pest Management Act enabling the minister of environment to develop regulations establishing lists of pesticides that may be regulated differently than other pesticides. The provincial government intends to implement the proposed revisions to the IMPR in two stages between 2014 and 2015.

Tanker research ‘subsidy’ to Enbridge, Federal Green Party leader says

By Tom Fletcher Black Press

Federal Green Party Leader Elizabeth May recently accused the Conservative government of “doing Enbridge’s homework” with $120-million program to study ocean weather and behaviour of heavy oil spills in the ocean around Kitimat. May added her voice to that of Green Party MLA Andrew Weaver, who raised questions in the B.C. legislature in July about an oceanmonitoring project in support of oil tanker exports as proposed by Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project. May and Weaver released leaked documents they say show Ottawa spending $78 million this year and $42 million next year for marine weather monitoring and determining how diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands would behave in a spill. May said federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty changed the federal budget documents this year to conceal changes to ministry and program spending, making it

impossible for MPs to identify spending on programs, such as the ocean monitoring on British Columbia’s North Coast. Federal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver issued a statement, rejecting May’s accusation of secrecy. Oliver said he announced the program publicly in Vancouver in March. “Work on tanker safety is critical to ensure we have we have world-class marine safety on Canada’s coastlines. While the Green Party and the NDP oppose resource-development projects before the science is in, our government will not make decisions until an independent scientific review determines they are safe for Canadians and safe for the environment.” Weaver said the investment amounts to a subsidy to Enbridge, which should do its own research on environmental effects of its pipeline and tanker port proposal. He cited a Fisheries and Oceans Canada document that concludes “behaviour models specific to

[diluted bitumen] do not exist, and existing commercial models for conventional oil do not allow parameter specific modifications.” Weaver called on the B.C. Liberal government to reiterate its opposition to Northern Gateway, which was detailed in the province’s final submission to the federal environmental assessment panel that concluded hearings this spring. He said Premier Christy Clark has backed away from

B.C. to consider booze sales in food stores

Public likes option, existing licensees not happy with suggestion

By Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Liberal government’s liquor policy review has heard a “loud-and-clear” message that people want the convenience of buying alcoholic beverages in grocery stores, says the MLA in charge of the review. With a three-month consultation period ending Oct. 31, Richmond Steveston MLA John Yap said on Oct. 29 that about 80 per cent of respondents want the extra convenience that is routine in United States grocery stores. However, Yap is proposing a less convenient model, a “store-within-a-store” that would have separate space and staff for alcohol purchases. He said the number of outlets could be restricted to the current level, with some existing private or public liquor stores moved into grocery stores. The Liquor Control Board of Ontario has announced a similar pilot project, with 10

“express” stores to offer limited selection inside or next to grocery stores. Nova Scotia also has government liquor stores located in grocery stores. When the British Columbia consultation began in September, Yap noted that beer, wine and spirits are already sold in rural grocery stores. He was critical of the U.S. model, saying it could lead to increased health and safety issues from increased consumption, as well as law enforcement problems. B.C.’s medical health officers have called for a freeze or reduction to the number of private retailers, a $3 minimum price for bar drinks and higher prices for drinks with more alcohol content to deter overconsumption. The Alliance of Beverage Licences, representing pubs, bars and private liquor stores in B.C., isn’t happy with the idea. ABLE BC executive director Ian Baillie said the province already has more than

1,400 government and private liquor stores. “The government also needs to consider what the impact of allowing large grocery

chains to sell liquor will be on the thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of income that are provided by the current system.”

Energy Minister Bill Bennett has issued a cabinet order to the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC) to make sure it approves fees high enough cover the costs of customers opting out of BC Hydro’s smart meter program. The order in council, signed by Bennett and Environment Minister Mary Polak, instructs the independent regulator to approve extra fees sufficient to meet the cost of manually reading mechanical electricity meters that remain in use, or collecting readings from digital meters that have their radio transmitter turned off on request of the customer. The order also directs the BCUC to approve fees to cover the costs of “failed installations,” either because the customer refused or because an obstacle was placed in the way of the installer. A spokesman for Bennett confirmed that the BCUC may still

decide to lower the optout fees proposed by BC Hydro, or it may increase them if costs warrant. BC Hydro sent letters in September to about 60,000 residential customers who have refused wireless meters, giving them until December to choose. If customers insist on

keeping their old meter, a $35 monthly fee applies effective Dec. 1. If they accept a smart meter with the “radio off,” a $100 setup fee is proposed, followed by $20 a month to collect readings starting April 1. If customers do not register a choice by Dec. 1, their meter will be left as is and the $35

monthly fee will be added to their bill. As it does with rate increases, BC Hydro will start charging its proposed fees as it prepares to defend them before the BCUC. If the commission orders changes, bills would be adjusted accordingly, with refunds or extra charges added.
