Panel reviews wrong design New Prosperity Mine report marred by NRCan’s misinformation

Carole Rooney Free Press

Taseko Mines Ltd. states it has determined that Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) used the wrong design in its analysis of the proposed New Prosperity Mines tailings storage facility, leading the federal review panel to incorrect findings. One of Taskeo’s top project engineering consultants, Knight Piesold, advised the mining company last week that NRCan, and subsequently the environmental review panel, used an incorrect design in its analysis of potential seepage rates from the tailings storage. That design was apparently missing a crucial, low-permeability compact

Milligan won the Thompson Creek Metals Company an award of merit from the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies-Canada, the Battison adds. “So, that design now is being held up by the Ministry of Energy and Continued on 6

Service dog assists veteran South Cariboo salutes vested new canine on ‘active duty’

Carole Rooney Free Press

Folks in 100 Mile House may notice a new community member in a bank, store or restaurant, but Howie isn’t a person – he’s a Level 2 Certified Service Dog (CSD). Identified by a bright orange vest with training certification cards attached, this one-year-old male Rottweiler is a companion and helper for local veteran Dwayne Butler, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Dwayne moved to 100 Mile House in 2012, with his nine-year-old son, Ty, from Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Shilo in Manitoba, where he had been posted for 11 years and earned the rank of bombardier. His wife, Bobbi-Jo Dayman, remained in Manitoba to finish off her 20-year contract with the Canadian Forces, and joined her family here when she retired in August 2013 as a Sergeant. Dwayne says he and Howie, then a six-monthold puppy, completed three weeks of training in Winnipeg in April and May 2013 with Elite Service K9 certified master dog trainer George Leonard. George runs the Manitoba Search and Rescue CSD Training Program with three other men who all provide CSD training for veterans and active service soldiers who need them, Dwayne explains. (More information is online at www.msar. ca/?page_id=218.) “There are a lot of service dog trainers in Canada, but not for the Elite K9 CSDs – that is a special type for PTSD, autism, the military, epilepsy in kids – he works with all that.” Bobbi-Jo says the Canadian Armed Forces doesn’t yet fully endorse the program, but currently allows four CSDs working daily with soldiers on the Shilo army base, even one in leadership programs where live ammunition is used. Another CSD went to Afghanistan on a helicopter, she adds. Dwayne says he and Howie are now gaining

experience and practice for subsequent Level 3 CSD testing during their regular outings in and around the municipality. So, what exactly does Howie do in helping the veteran cope in living with PTSD? “He is mostly a companion, but he helps me leave the house. He just keeps me calm ... with him, I can actually go out more because most of the time I stay indoors, if I can, or stay at home.” Now, Dwayne gets out to the grocery store, has a coffee at Smitty’s – where he notes staff have been very accommodating to Howie – and generally deals with the everyday needs of his family around town. “There’s just somebody else there, so it kind of relaxes me, and Howie interrupts disruptive behaviour. When he is Level 3 certified, he should be able to detect when I am agitated or anxious.” Howie will do that by “moving in” to take over his attention in a friendly manner, Dwayne explains, by rubbing up against him, or even climbing up face-toface if needed. “It’s ‘focus on me, focus on me’. It’s like a grounding tool. So, I think that is the ultimate goal of what his job will be.” Currently, Howie is on the job whenever he wears his vest, and sticks to Dwayne like glue unless told to stay. “At home, he doesn’t have his vest on and is just a normal puppy. He chews on our chairs if he is left alone.” The Level 3 test will happen whenever Dwayne feels he and the dog are ready for it, he says, adding there is no timeline and no hurry. Bobbi-Jo explains she has joined forces with the B.C./Yukon Royal Canadian Legions (RCLs), which now sponsor CSDs, to raise awareness, promote the program in British Columbia and get more sponsors on board. “WestJet really embraces the program and veterans, so I think that is really important [recognition].” She notes CSDs fly on WestJet for free, and the veteran gets two extra seats with his dog sitting beside

him, rather than in the cargo hold with regular pets. Dwayne and Bobbi-Jo are members of The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #260-100 Mile House, which she explains paid for Howie’s CSD vest, and committed to cover Dwayne’s future training flights, if needed. RCL#260 president Bob Wangensteen has also helped support the program, she explains. “Once Bob found out about the dog, he brought it forward at his Veterans-UN NATO Canada meetings, and it has come on board as a huge supporter. “UN NATO, Wounded Warriors Canada and the Soldier On program all

provide money into the program, and there’s also other private donors.” Dwayne adds he can take the more than five-hour test for Level 3 in Chilliwack. He may or may not opt to return for more training in Winnipeg before that, he says, depending how well things move along with Howie. Unfortunately, not everyone understands why a man who isn’t blind would have a canine companion travelling everywhere with him. Bobbi-Jo says most curious folks ask polite questions when they see the dog in the vest, which she or Dwayne respond to happily. However, a few people

have been less courteous about it, she notes, and some places even banned the dog from coming inside, despite the national certification he carries on his vest. Dwayne remains a bit self-conscious under all the attention he garners with Howie, but says he is gradually getting used to it. These young Canadian veterans hope their new community will embrace the program, and welcome Howie and Dwayne in all local establishments (some have “guide dog only” signs). “Service dogs are being used for a lot more than just the blind,” says BobbiJo. “They are not just a guide dog anymore.”

The $600,000 contract for developing a concept plan for the Cariboo Memorial Hospital expansion has been awarded to CEI Architecture.

First Nations takes the helm

Carole Rooney Free Press

After several years in the making, Oct. 1 marked the historic transfer of all health programs and services for British Columbia’s First Nations from Health Canada to the new First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). The transfer was outlined in several guiding documents and agreements, including the 2011 British Columbia Tripartite Framework Agreement on First Nation Health Governance. That agreement paved the way for the federal government to transfer the planning, design, management and delivery of B.C. First Nations health programs to FNHA. First Nations Health Council (FNHC) chair Grand Chief Doug Kelly says the First Nations Health Authority was built by B.C. First Nations for B.C. First Nations. “Now is the time for B.C. First Nations to take our rightful place,

determining our own health outcomes and what wellness means to us.”

Local band on board Canim Lake Band health administrator Sheila Dick has participated in various aspects of the local work being done between the FNHC, regional First Nations and Interior Health. She says it’s exciting that B.C. is the first province to take over responsibility for its own health care. “A lot of staff from Health Canada transferred over to working for the [FNHA], and we had to have ‘all our ducks in a row’ by the end of September.” FNHA has health service regions, Dick notes, such as an Interior Region to cover the Interior Health area, each with a regional leader. These leaders liaise between FNHA and the health workers providing the programs and services, Dick adds. “We’ll have one person we can start working with closely, so

we can begin developing our process.” Some things will transfer quite easily, but others will be more difficult, Dick explains, as there isn’t the former staff level since not every related health position transferred over to FNHA. “They said it will be a seamless process and we won’t feel it much on the ground, but we are – around helping our clients get glasses, helping them get dental in place, all this stuff. There are glitches, but it’s to be expected.” The FNHA will operate with the federal funding that finances health services on the reserves, while the provincial authority will continue to cover offreserve treatment, such as at hospitals, or those clinics First Nations people choose to attend. Trepidation eased Dick recently learned more up-to-date details about the new FNHA at a large FNHC conference she attended in Vancouver in October. The health administrator explains she’s

harboured concerns for some time about how the FNHA will work in actual practice for Canim Lake Band members and other B.C. First Nations. “I felt a little better after I went to the conference. I still have trepidation about it becoming a hierarchal and patriarchal kind of system, but I think if we continue to ‘make noise’ at our level, they are going to hear it.” However, Dick says she does believe it is a positive move to empower the local Secwepemc (Shuswap) people and other First Nations across the province to handle their own local health care. “It makes us take responsibility for what happens on the ground. And we’re not having decisions made by somebody way over in Ottawa, where they have no clue about B.C.” Letters of understanding, a partnership accord and other agreements are in place to ensure a good working relationship with IH, she adds.

Meanwhile, as the FNHA takes over these programs and services, Dick explains the Secwepemc and other First Nations in the region are working jointly with Interior Health on a Regional Health and Wellness Plan.

Cut level unchanged for 100 Mile House TSA for five years

On Nov. 7, British Columbia’s deputy chief forester Diane Nicholls announced the allowable annual cut (AAC) for the 100 Mile House timber supply area (TSA) will remain at two million cubic metres (m3) until 2018. After five years, however, the AAC will be halved to one million m3 for an additional five years. In her decision, Nicholls specified that no more than 500,000 m3 of the AAC can be harvested from live trees.

Limiting the harvest forests, woodlots and of live trees helps to First Nations woodland mitigate the projected licences. decrease in timber sup“So there are other ply, the deputy chief areas of opportunities forester explains in her for fibre out there.” report.

After five years, when She notes the AAC the dead pine has detedoesn’t take into riorated to the point it account (include tim- can no longer be used ber from) private for commercial purpostimber, community es, she adds the AAC

will decrease to one million cubic metres. This decrease reflects the need to transition to a lower mid-term timber supply that will occur until regenerating pine stands become suitable for harvesting, Nicholls explains. “Keeping the allowable annual cut elevated for five more years will maximize the salvage of dead timber and reforestation of affected lands. The projected timber supply will only support that level of harvest until around 2018, so this determination includes an automatic decrease to a level that will conserve


the mid-term timber supply.” Noting that when the beetle coalitions were started in 2006, Barnett says they knew it was eventually going to happen depending on the shelf life of the beetlekilled wood. She adds the analysis made between 2006 and 2008 on how long the timber harvest levels would stay constant was very close to what is occurring today. “Hopefully in the next five years, there will be new initiatives in our communities and new opportunities and new industries [other than complete reliance on the forest industry] that will help us move forward.” Meanwhile, she says it’s good news for the community’s stability with West Fraser upgrading the mill new technology to be more efficient with its timber use. “I’m very positive and optimistic about the future for our region.” The chief forester’s AAC determination is available from the 100 Mile House Natural Resource district office in 100 Mile House or online at http://www.

The 100 Mile District General Hospital will soon see a renovation of its chemotherapy consultation office. Cariboo-Chilcotin Regional Hospital District (CCRHD) chair John Massier says the South Cariboo Health Foundation (SCHF) approached the board for grant funding toward improvements to the aesthetics and overall office space.

100 Mile House set for BC Hydro power pole changeover BC Hydro is advising 100 Mile House residents that crews will be replacing power poles in 100 Mile House during the next several months. The work is part of BC Hydro’s ongoing maintenance program that will see the replacement of more than 10,000 utility poles this year throughout British Columbia. BC Hydro maintains 900,000 wooden poles as part of its electricity-distribution system that


delivers power to homes and businesses throughout the province. More than 20 per cent of BC Hydro’s wooden poles have been in service for more than 40 years. In total, BC Hydro’s system includes 56,000 kilometres of distribution lines. Over time, wooden poles weaken due to adverse weather, insects and wildlife. BC Hydro regularly inspects the old poles and puts in new poles for safety

and to strengthen the reliability of the electricity system. Pole replacement may require BC Hydro or its contractors to disconnect power. Crews take special care to avoid any unnecessary impacts to customers, a press release states. However, if outages need to be scheduled for safety reasons, BC Hydro or its contractors will let customers know in person, or by mail or phone.

AAC remains unchanged


MP: Benefits available for vets


am writing in regards to benefits available to injured veterans. Unfortunately, there has been much inaccurate information publicized about what veterans actually do receive. Veterans receive much more than a single “lumpsum payment” when a debilitating injury is suffered, as has been popularized in recent months. The lump-sum referred to is the payment between Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) and the Service Income Security Insurance Program (SISIP). This is up to a total of $548,000, which is tax free. Since the New Veterans Charter was updated in 2011, veterans have the option of receiving the Disability Award (the VAC portion of the payment) all at once or in incremental payments over time. After the Disability Award, disabled veterans start to receive up to $5,400 per

month, depending on the their house. severity of their injury, Veterans get access to which can continue past age programs to modify their 65. homes and vehicles to meet This payment is the requirements of their composed of the Permanent disabilities.

00 Mile and area residents received some good news on Nov. 7 when the province’s deputy chief forester Diane Nicholls announced the allowable annual cut (AAC) for 100 Mile House timber supply area (TSA) will remain at two million cubic metres for five years. That news should give area residents some comfort and a feeling of security for the next five years or more. This is especially true when we consider the fact that West Fraser is putting together a new mill to deal with the dwindling timber supply through efficiency and technology. The company wouldn’t be making that kind of investment if it was going to be closing its doors 10 years down the road. There are a number of potential scenarios when it comes to the chief or deputy chief foresters’ AAC determination, which are independent, professional judgments based on information ranging from technical forestry reports, First Nations and public input to the government’s social and economic goals. The status of the AAC also depends on annual reporting and recommendations from Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations staff on when the next timber supply review should occur. So, in that sense, AAC terms are not set in stone (number of years), but rather the state of the forests. However, there are incentives for the industry to continue in the race to harvest the beetle-killed pine while it’s marketable and economically viable to bring it to market. In her report, the deputy chief forester noted no more than 500,000 cubic metres of the allowable annual cut can be green wood. That’s one-quarter of the AAC for the first five years, and half of the AAC for the next five years. The greater incentive kicks in when the timber will be harvested the farthest from the mill, which makes it more economically viable. Furthermore, there are other sources of fibre – private woodlots, community forests and First Nations woodland licences, which are not counted in the AAC. There are a couple of groups researching ways to mitigate the mid-term timber supply shortages and one of the options being suggested is opening up land-use plans to harvest trees in areas that have been protected to this point. Depending on how that works out, there may be more timber available. However, we still have to diversify because a healthy community can no longer be a one-trick pony. Whether it is establishing a secondary wood production industry or becoming a bedroom community, so people can live here and commute to work in the mining and LNG industries or for spinoff jobs those industries provide, we can no longer rely on forestry jobs alone.

released until age 65. The two payments mentioned above, which max out at $2,700 per month each, are available to continue on for those with the most serious injuries. Through eight budgets, our government has invested almost $5 billion in new funding to enhance Veterans benefits, programs and services. There are, of course, legitimate issues with the New Veterans Charter that need to be addressed and which we are working very hard to tackle. Our government recently announced a comprehensive parliamentary review that will seek to make further improvements to the charter. Our government supports our veterans and will continue to work for them. Making completely false claims about the benefits that disabled veterans receive does not help anybody.

Reader responds to Grit critic’s Oct. 16 letter To the editor: One wonders how Liberal Ethics critic Scott Andrews would have the audacity to throw stones at Stephen Harper, considering the fragile nature of the Liberal ethical glass house. The Liberal sponsorship scandal comes to mind, as do the inappro-

priate housing expenses incurred by Liberal MPs Judy Sgro, Wayne Easter and former MP John Cannis. When all the dust settled over the “robocall scandal” in Guelph, it was only the Liberal Party convicted and fined for robocall improprieties. As for senators,

Fracking concerns Canadians To the editor: The impact of hydraulic fracturing – fracking – has been that “Canadians have raised concerns related to groundwater contamination, disposal of fracturing fluids, induced seismicity, greenhouse gas emissions, such as methane venting and leaking, and others.” The report, Responsible Shale Development: Enhancing the Knowledge Base on Shale Oil and Gas in Canada, from the Energy and Mines Ministers Conference in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories in August 2013, also states “Public awareness, engagement and disclosure are important considerations for policy-makers, regulators and operators as they consider opportunities of shale resource development in Canada.” New Brunswick Premier Alward refusing to be involved in an injunction that led to the RCMP amassing and employing threat of force against protesters, and Canada’s Justice Minister Peter MacKay suggesting the

“resumption of talks” between protesters and fracking company as his approach to dispute settlement – both fell far short of what was recommended and is necessary. What is necessary is the government of Canada, with concurrence of the provinces, undertake a thorough risk-benefit analysis of the long-term effects of hydraulic fracturing upon watersheds and other aspects of the environment, before permitting it to take place. This alone can determine the reality of its effects and the most effective methodology that can be employed. Increasing jurisdictions other than Canada are outlawing fracking – Scotland on Oct. 18: “There are no environmental permissions which would allow hydraulic fracturing in Scotland at this time.” It is necessary for Canada to do no less than determine whether its actions are valid or the manner in which fracking can be undertaken. Joe Hueglin Niagara Falls, Ont.

Marc Harb resigned over improper housing claims and the only senator in prison for senate fraud is Raymond Lavigne. Undoubtedly, Andrews is counting on the complicity of Canada’s liberal media establishment to selectively report on the issues. For example, Mike Duffy has become a household name without having been convicted of anything, whereas few people have even heard of Lavigne. Likewise, it would be hard to find anyone who is aware of Bill C-7, the Senate Reform Act, a comprehensive bill introduced by the Conservatives in 2011. It would bring about provincial sena-

torial elections, nine-year terms for senators and more financial accountability – and it’s vigorously opposed by the opposition parties, some senators and, of course, Quebec. Instead of objectively reporting on this, the mainstream media caterwauls about the horrors of omnibus bills. No wonder the Prime Minister’s Office is constantly at odds with the Ottawa Press Gallery. Regardless, Andrews is wrong. If they’re chosen in good faith, prime ministers of any stripe should not be held personally responsible for the misdeeds of individual MPs or senators.

Duffy and Pamela Wallin (championed by Jean Chretien) should have been good choices. Both were well-respected journalists who had distinguished careers, and if it is determined they had their hands too deep in the senate cookie jar, then they alone are responsible for their actions. Individual humans are fallible, but the system works reasonably well at bringing them to account. And if anything is certain, it is that no party will ever be immune from the occasional misdeeds of its members. I. Schreifels 108 Mile Ranch

Politicians, community newspaper appreciated To the editor: Having lived and done business in the 100 Mile area for 20 years, I have had many occasions to appreciate the job our elected representatives are doing in heading up the structure of our community. Whether it be our mayor and council, our MLA, or our regional district representatives, I am happy to say that whether I happened to agree with them on a particular issue or not, I always had a sense of their working from a genuine position of “community first.” Seemingly absent are the selfserving decisions we often hear of – usually in jurisdictions larger

than ours. To these mentioned parties I would like to acknowledge all the hard work that you do for us and for all of our communities. I also appreciate your generally accessible, responsive and friendly manner and, last but not least, your honesty. I hope and believe that I speak for many in expressing, “Thank you very much for what you do! You are doing a lot of what makes this a great community to live in and enjoy.” And in such mention of appreciation, I would be remiss if I did not include the 100 Mile House Free Press. This great small-town

newspaper whose informative articles, biographies and news bits contribute so much toward our community culture. For a few years, I received a local paper from another small community and, believe me, by comparison we are extremely well served by “our” paper. And to the leadership of other entities, such as our school board, I have not mentioned you, as I simply have not had enough contact with your organizations to be familiar as I am with those noted above.

Redford accepts campaign against it. The B.C.

Reaction was swift and scattered after the “framework agreement” on new oil pipelines announced last week by British Columbia Premier Christy Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford. First, here’s what it doesn’t mean. “B.C. blinked,” according to one Toronto commentator, based on the popular notion that B.C. gave up its claim to a share of Alberta’s resource royalties from heavy oil. Clark never made such a claim, so it would be difficult to give it up. Her often-repeated condition of a “fair share” of revenues from any new oil pipelines is purposely vague, but after repeated protests from Alberta, Clark clarified as far back as last June that provincial royalties are not on the table. There is no constitutional way to make such a demand, a point Redford has made several times. NDP Leader Adrian Dix and the usual chorus of professional protesters claimed Clark flip-flopped, opposing the Enbridge Northern Gateway proposal before the election and then embracing it once she was re-elected.

emissions, and promises a final version next spring. Oh, and Quebec refuses to participate. Ottawa has sole jurisdiction over interprovincial projects, such as Northern Gateway and the proposal by Kinder Morgan Canada to expand the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby and refineries in Washington. If there is to be some extra revenue for B.C. from oil traffic, it could theoretically take the form of a toll on pipelines. Redford pointed out the problem with that idea in her speech to an energy forum in Vancouver last week. She noted that 42 per cent of B.C. natural gas is piped through Alberta to markets. If B.C. can toll Alberta oil, the same could be done with B.C. gas. None of B.C.’s five conditions has yet been met. Legally, they don’t have to be, except for the one about accommodating Aboriginal title.

the province Rural crime rash prompts response Williams Lake — A continued rash of property crimes in and around Alexis Creek has provoked residents to form a Citizens on Patrol program. “We had about 25 people out to a meeting here last night,” said Alexis Creek Sgt. Michael Hacker Wednesday. “It was the third meeting we’ve had. We’re still in the organizing phase.” Hacker said there has been an increase in stolen vehicles, break-and-enters and property crime in the area. “Those particular offences are most visible to the public,” Hacker said. “Other types of crime generally don’t have the same kind of impact that property crime does.” Most of the thieves, if they are prolific offenders, are pretty good at what they do and hard to attach to the crimes they commit, he said, making it a challenge for policing success. Residents will have to be trained and Hacker said they are probably a few weeks away from doing any patrolling.

Assault victim ends up arrested

SALMON ARM — Police are investigating after an intoxicated man was allegedly assaulted by unknown assailants in the parking lot of the A&W restaurant. The man was, however, later arrested for criminal charges of his own. At 11:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 5, police responded with ambulance service to a man who had been assaulted in the parking lot of A&W in Salmon Arm. The adult male victim and his partner met police and advised that unknown males had assaulted him with a baseball bat. The victim had a large bump and laceration to his forehead. Both the victim and his partner were intoxicated and would not cooperate with police questioning. The victim was taken to hospital and released a short time later. Upon his release, the victim was arrested as he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest out of Vernon.

Yes, I think it would be. From what I have read, it sounds like the project is based on promises the mining company can’t deliver.

I think we need the work the mine would bring, but I do hope they properly address the environmental issues. I’m kind of sitting on the fence on that.

No, I don’t think that federal review panel knows what it is doing. I am in favour of the mine, and they should go ahead with the project.

No. Those guys at Taseko Mines usually look after the environment already, like at their other Gibraltar Mine, and jobs are needed here.

The limits for alcohol intake is lower for women than men for three main reasons. Women have less water in their bodies to help dilute the alcohol in the blood. Their bodies have a higher fat content thus alcohol is absorbed more slowly. Women have lower levels of an enzyme needed to metabolize alcohol. The most common sexually transmitted disease in Canada is HPV (Human Papillomavirus). Approximately 3 out of 4 sexually active Canadians will be infected with HPV at some time in their lives. HPV is associated with cervical cancer. There is a vaccine available for males and females aged 9 and up. It is a very effective vaccine. Look into protecting your children.

A good-bye party was held for Mizael Bertrand Garcia, who has been visiting Paul and Cindy Whitehead for the past six months (May 3-Oct. 30), at the Old School House on Eagle Creek Road on Oct. 26. Paul and Cindy met Mizael on one of their trips to Mexico and struck up a friendship, and invited him

to come to Canada and stay with them. Coming to Canada had always been a dream of Mizael’s and after knowing Paul and Cindy for a few years, he decided to take them up on their offer and come to visit. Mizael says the scenery and the people of Canada have always intrigued him. Mizael is a language professor at the Universidad Technologica de Mexico and he hopes to further his studies of English and one day write a book about his visit to Canada. Mizael took English classes while he was here and did very well, conversing easily with all of his new friends by the time he had to go. He also helped peo-

ple with their Spanish in trade for practising his English. Paul and Cindy’s friends and neighbours kept Mizael busy during his visit and it wasn’t unusual to see him out with them cycling all over the area, exploring back roads and seeing the sights from the seat of a bicycle. Mizael, Paul and Cindy went to Barriere to take in the fall fair and they also took him to the fall fair in 100 Mile House. He also attended his first hockey game during which the Wranglers played. Mizael learned about beekeeping, went fishing in a few of the local lakes, went to the Williams Lake Stampede and could

Snowfall immerses Canim Lake CANIM LAKE

Peter Hart 250 397-2645

Dear Canimites, Recent heavy snows took us from pleasant

fall to full-on-winter in one day, but it was spotty at first. The first heavy snow brought barely an inch to the folks living at tropical Mahood, while eight to 12 inches blanketed the South Canim Lake Road. It gave motorists a sight as they navigated around trees brought low. “It was like driving through a white tunnel,”

one said. BC Hydro has been busy shuttling around the area freeing power lines, much to the relief of residents. On the plus side, there won’t be much mowing for the next few months. Large flocks of geese have been circling in through snow squalls to rest in Guenther Dangela’s fields, before continuing on south.

Trumpeter swans also arrived, loudly proclaiming their presence at the mouth of Bridge Creek with a stentorian bugling worthy of a 12-cylinder Pierce Arrow. They will stay until the ice pushes them off their weedy

New fire hall sign depicts the efforts of a strong community

From 14

work bee at Fire Hall #2, tuning and taking inventory of their equipment. One happy task was the erection of a sign commemorating the 2007 construction of the building by the community. Back then, it was the Canim Lake Fire Department, operating under the auspices of the Canim Lake Fire Protection Society. Funding then came from memberships and grants from various levels of government. Service was provided to the same area now covered by FGVFD Fire Hall #2. Over three sunny days on the May long weekend, the community pitched in to convert a pile of materials to the ‘lock-up’ stage of the hall you see today. The women baked and cooked up a storm, piling long tables with food of all kinds, as the men built walls in a number of teams under the direction of foreman Pat LaBossiere. The trusses went on under the careful hand of Garry Baker operating Pete Van Osch’s mobile crane. It was a terrific effort for a relatively small community. Many companies assisted by donating materials and services. That’s all recorded on the new sign attached to the hall, with 80 names of people and firms who helped, and a picture of

the building in its early stages. A number of people who participated have since moved south, and sadly six of our number then have passed away. They are Ken Charles, Norm Crocker, Al DeVries, Pat LaBossiere, Egon Peterson and Olga Pugsley. The sign reminds us of the strong character of our community that lies unseen beneath the beat of daily life. It also reminds us of the contributions of people past to what we have today. For that we can be thankful. Stop by and have a look.

People News Terry and Shannon Wagner celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary Nov. 4 at their home on Canim-Hendrix Lake Road. Terry says their first date was to the wedding of a mutual friend in Camrose, Alberta. Shannon was in the last years of high school and Terry was this handsome dude working in automotive service. The wedding theme stuck as five

years later they married. Both loved the outdoors, so their choice of Canim Lake is a natural one. They moved here and built their new home in 2008/09 and are now both active mem-

bers of our community.

Road work The late arriving snow gave Interior Roads a chance for some lastminute work patching holes in the Canim Lake

Estates pavement, and beginning the task of road repair and gravelling at Mahood Lake. That’s all for now. Until next time, here’s wishing you many blessings.

Speed – And Lose Your Vehicle?

In April of 2012, news reports informed us that a motorcycle rider wearing a helmet mounted camera had recorded a video showing the motorcycle weaving in and out of traffic near Victoria at speeds of up to 300 km/h. The video was posted to YouTube and went viral.

More recently, news reports advised us that Randy Scott, the alleged driver of the motorcycle, was acquitted of charges against him because the Crown was not able to identify him, beyond a reasonable doubt, as the driver. One such news report advised that the motorcycle had been seized by police who intended to sell it through the civil forfeiture process because it had been used illegally. A few weeks before Mr. Scott’s acquittal, another motorcycle case came before the courts – also in Victoria. In BC (Director of Civil Forfeiture) v. Dery (2013 BCSC 1643), Jason Dery was fighting the seizure of his vehicle by the Director of Civil Forfeiture. According to the case report, Mr. Dery had a long history of motor vehicle driving offences. The incident which led to seizure of his motorcycle saw his Ducati being operated at speeds in excess of 200 km/h. The Director of Civil Forfeiture alleged that this “unlawful” conduct justified seizure of the motorcycle. The wording of the civil forfeiture legislation appears to target unlawful activity resulting “in the acquisition of property” or causing harm or the likelihood of serious bodily harm to a person. The Director of Civil Forfeiture focused the Dery case on the likelihood that serious bodily harm might have been caused. In presenting its case, however, the Director of Civil Forfeiture presented no evidence about the likelihood of bodily harm – and so the Court held that there were no grounds for seizing the motorcycle.

In considering the Scott and the Dery cases, one can only say that we are apparently a very long way from the time when a fine was the only consequence for the speeding driver. Apparently, seizure of vehicles is now an appropriate consequence for driving too fast. If so, that leaves us with a question: How fast is too fast – or, in other words, how fast do you have to go before the government decides it will try to seize your vehicle?

Designs for Living

Wednesday, November 13, 2013 100 Mile Free Press


Ask an Expert:


I have heard that LED lighting can be harsh. Is that true? One thing is clear: compact fluorescent lighting is now a transitional technology. Fluorescents will always have a place, but CF-style lighting is starting to fade away, gradually being replaced by LED-based products. Let’s look at a critically important component for many homeowners: color and LED lights.

Total Living Area: 1573 sq. ft. Bedrooms: 3 Bathrooms: 2 Main Level: Master bedroom with ensuite and large walk-in closet, lavish 21’x20’ great room with bay, adjacent kitchen and dining areas, 6’x10’ defined entry at rear with private hallway to secondary bedrooms, additional bathroom and laundry area. Special Features: Broad 60’ front porch, impressive architectural design favours entertaining away from private living areas.

THE PROBLEM OF COLOR Anyone shopping for a PC monitor, particularly for photo or video editing, understands the importance of color temperature and color gamut. But most of us often forget that these measurements are also important when shopping for lighting. Unlike monitors, the standard often used is Color Rendering Index, or CRI, which indicates how a particular light source will reproduce the colors of objects in the environment faithfully. Most of us have experienced the eerie look of sodium lamps, often used in outdoor lighting. Colors of objects within the range of the light often take an unsettling reddish cast. High pressure sodium lights have a CRI of roughly 25 (on a scale of 0-100), which gives you an idea of why objects don’t look right in areas using sodium lights as the primary light source. (The other issue is that the emission spectrum of high pressure sodium lamps is shifted towards red.) Most consumer interior lights have CRI ratings ranging from 60-100. However, the CRI isn’t the only thing to worry about. The color temperature, which is a way to gauge the emission spectrum of the light, is also important. Two different lights can have identical CRI ratings, but objects would look different if the emitted light from the two sources are rated at different color temperatures.

Color temperature is a measurement of the color output by a light source, usually displayed as degrees Kelvin. The problem is that most people are used to the color temperature of standard incandescent bulbs for interior lighting, which is roughly 2700K. Incandescent bulbs at this color temperature are often labeled “warm white”, although you’ll find a few bulbs labeled “cool white” or “daylight”. Those are often 5000 – 5600K bulbs. “Warm” and “cool” are misnomers in a sense, since the actual color temperatures of “warm white” represent the light created by black bodies at cooler temperatures than the light emanating from black bodies at higher temperatures. Most people are much more comfortable with 2700 – 3000K, and feel the whiter light with more blue content is harsher, even though 5000K is closer to the roughly 5600K of daylight color. So when you go shopping for LED lighting, look for either “warm white” on the box or a color temperature rating of 2700-3000K.

The good-bye party at the school house was a potluck supper and there were a lots of laughs and speeches not to mention tears. Octoberfest fun The meat draw on Oct. 19 at the Forest Grove Legion was very busy because they combined it with an Octoberfest and oompapa music. Legion president Jim “Twinkletoes” Tindale got people up dancing and everyone enjoyed the homemade perogies, sauerkraut, cabbage rolls and Ukrainian sausage, as well as the items that are always available on

the usual menu. Legion secretary Darlene Tindale says the Legion was packed that night, and if you came in late, it was hard to find a place to sit. Octoberfest in Forest Grove has been deemed a success and will be back again next year. Halloween The Forest Grove Legion was decorated and ready for trick-ortreaters by 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 31 and Darlene was dressed as the Great

Pumpkin to give out candy. On the candy table she had a witch’s head in a jar and her eyes would light up when her microphone was turned on. When kids came into the Legion for their treats, the witch spoke from her jar and more than one child ran from the room.

Most were curious and talked with the witch never suspecting that she was being operated by someone from the other side of the room. It was all great fun and everyone continued trick-or-treating in the neighbourhood and then went on to the fireworks that started at 7:30 p.m.

Regular maintenance costs are easily figured but some cars can be very expensive if parts have to be brought in from around the world. Once you have a handle on the above, you can narrow your choice. It is important you like the looks of the second most expensive purchase of your life. However, make sure it serves its intended purpose by answering some questions. Typically, how many people do you need to transport and how far? Is there enough stowage space in the cabin and the trunk or luggage compartment? Do you need V8 power or will an economical four-cylinder suffice? Now go and kick some tires at a variety of dealerships and consider multiple brands because they all have much to offer.

A vehicle doesn’t have to be exorbitantly expensive, have mega horsepower or a fancy Italian badge on it to be fun to drive. In fact, a lot of people seem to agree with that statement too since there are a few pocket rockets available on the market that might not compete for the top power specs, but can certainly get the party started. Ford Fiesta ST- $24,499 If its exterior colour, say the one clad in Green Envy, doesn’t catch your eye, perhaps its exhaust note will. When you rev 1.6L, 4-cylinder, turbocharged, EcoBoost engine of the Fiesta ST, you’ll probably turn your head. Yes, it’s a subcompact but it doesn’t feel like it when you’re working through the gears of the 6-speed manual transmission. Ford’s newest mini powerhouse comes with a whopping 197 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque. It’s the same engine paired with the Focus ST, but in a smaller packaged. Its sport infused suspension, gearbox, phenomenal handling and host of creature comforts sound good to you, it’s even better to drive. You just might make your friends green with envy because you’re having so much fun behind the wheel.

The Canadian choice: compact cars and compact SUVs building these new cars inside the NAFTA zone will save money and that will be reflected in the price. 2014 Jeep Cherokee The Cherokee is back and it looks nothing like the boxy truck of old. In fact, this new, small SUV is based on the same Alfa Romeo platform used in the Dodge Dart. It is smooth and quiet and a pleasure to drive. The Cherokee is also the first vehicle in the world to be equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 184hp or


Toyota believes this new Corolla can take the overall sales crown away from the Honda Civic.


So many cars to choose from, so few words available in this tight space! Yes, I know that’s the complaint of every writer but we truly do have a lot of choice today. And the quality of vehicles is so much higher than it ever was so there is much to celebrate. In the run-up to 2014, I will be testing a lot of what’s new and improved. Today, I’ll just offer you five models to consider adding to your shopping list. 2014 Mazda3 The compact car segment in Canada is the biggest by far, with over 20 percent of all vehicles sold. So, the introduction of the Mazda3 is important because it is currently the fourth best seller in this class. The outgoing car was already one of the best handling cars and now with a lighter and sexier looking body, this new car is both eye catching and solid on the road. The base engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 155hp, thanks to direct injection. The larger 2.5L engine puts out a healthy 184hp. It is the interior buyers will care most about, and the Mazda3 is a nice surprise, due to class leading available options and a high level of finish. Starting at $15,995 and running up to $29,895, there is a Mazda3 for all budgets. 2014 Toyota Corolla Continuing with the com-

This is practical for people who require extra capacity but don’t want to buy a bigger or more expensive mid-sized or larger SUV. Under the hood is a 2.5L 4-cylinder used in other Nissan products and is matched to a new continually variable transmission featuring more available ratios and reduced friction. The interior is very well executed, with a dash that looks similar to the bigger Pathfinder. Goes on sale just before Christmas. zack.spencer@drivewaybc. ca

2014 Jeep Cherokee pact car theme, the Toyota Corolla is the third best selling car in Canada but Toyota believes this new model can take the overall sales crown away from the Honda Civic. This new 2014 model is made, and partly designed, right here in Canada with our needs in mind. The Corolla now has a longer wheelbase for amazing interior space, especially in the back seat. The dash is wide and flat for ample room and covered in nice looking and feeling materials, plus there is an avail-

able centre screen to use for the radio and backup camera. Powering the 2014 Corolla is the same 132hp 1.8L engine from the last model, with one exception. The LE Eco model has a modified valve system to improve fuel economy and pump the power to 140hp. The biggest change is the introduction of a continuously variable transmission for a greater range of gears, improved economy, and a smooth drive. 2014 Volkswagen Golf This new Golf will be made

in Mexico along side the Beetle and Jetta sedan and will go on sale in the spring of 2014. It is wider and longer than the last Golf but also significantly lighter and safer. The base engine will be a new turbocharged 1.8L engine with 170hp but don’t worry the TDI diesel is carried over. The sportier GTI trim is fantastic, with an estimated 225hp, in the Canadian Model, thanks to a new 2.0L turbo engine. The interior materials used inside are almost Audi quality. No price yet but

Not to worry Jeep fans, this new Cherokee is available with three AWD systems. 2014 Nissan Rogue You might notice a trend with my 2014 model choices are all compact cars or compact SUVs. This is the direction Canadians are heading when it comes to buying a new vehicle. With this in mind Nissan has an all-new Rogue compact SUV with enough room inside for three rows of seats and room for 7-passengers.

Drives-U-Crazy Intersection Idiots. A myth abounds among self-righteous, over-cautious drivers that only one left-turning car at a time is permitted to enter an intersection on a green light. Those who adhere to this unwritten ‘rule’ annoy those behind and hold up the flow of traffic. It is especially annoying when so many larger BC centres have intersections large enough to accommodate two and often three vehicles. What drives-u-crazy.

An exciting car doesn’t have to be expensive it has personality. Describing it in one word, I’d say it’s funky.

There’s also a 2.0L 4-cylinder available with 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.

She says this money will outfit the newly-occupied offices at The Lodge with furniture and equipment to transform it into a functioning social enterprise centre. “Now, we are in a position to have a facility that is open for activities.” While the AEC was, sadly, not successful in its bid for a BC Hydro Community Champions $10,000 prize, thanks to Paul Luft and Chris Harris, it was able to create a video for the application process. That video offers a great snapshot of what the Ag Centre is all about, and it can be viewed online at LW90N8& Bolstered by the new funding from FCC, Giesbrecht says the AEC board has announced it will now consider adding several paid, part-time positions for staff and an executive director to help current volunteers facilitate the programming. “We are inviting expressions of interest from our members, and beyond, who have a passion to help this organization grow and work as a team to fulfill our mandate, along with our board of directors. “For the organization to develop programming and plans that are relevant and sustainable, we need a team of three to four people to handle grant writing and financial co-ordination; program co-ordination and development; administration; and over-

all management.” About 10 people representing groups attended an open house and info session at the AEC on Oct. 23, as an information gathering for further exploration. The Beyond the Market event pursued potential for some expanded programs and services in the Cariboo, she notes. This program has been offered to agricultural producers in the Northern Interior so far, and was used as a model for what could be offered to the Cariboo. “We were pleased that people were interested and participatory in that information gathering. What we have realized is we have already got a lot of the groundwork done

and in hand that this project would do, were it to be similarly implemented [here].” Giesbrecht says strong community input is needed if the project is to move forward. “The important thing is to have this information be as widely understood by as many people as possible, so that if it proves to be a good opportunity, we have the chance to take it.” More information is available online at The delayed AEC annual general meeting for members only is rescheduled for Nov. 20 at the Ag Centre. She notes a Chris Harris photographic project initiated especially for this earlier

this spring had him out photographing the various farms, ranches and producers in the area. This project provides quality imagery at no cost to the AEC, Giesbrecht explains, to be used in its various publications, online and media. An entertaining draft project unveiling will be held at the AGM. Other grant applications are now pending thanks to new office volunteer Colleen Robb who is helping to fill a void while Margaret Perry is temporarily away on a contract as a film-industry professional.

Whether in their past, present or future actions, Giesbrecht says both women help give “traction” to the Ag Centre. “Our other great ally on that front has been Lisa De Paoli at the Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre, and her whole staff. They have been a huge help and wonderful mentors in getting us some dollars.” She adds all members of the public are invited to become AEC members, whether they are a farmer or rancher, a gardener, or just like to eat wholesome food and support the local industry. “Friday mornings we are hosting a public and members drop-in, as sort of a meet-andgreet, for a place to meet your neighbour, for producers to connect with consumers, to find out what’s happening at the Ag Centre, and for anything else that might fit within our mandate.” Folks who are planning, or just thinking about holding an agriculture-related event (including food security) could meet up with others to see if sufficient interest exists within the community, Giesbrecht notes. She encourages those who shopped at the South Cariboo

project of the South Cariboo Sustainability Committee and the AEC. Other AEC activities included making an appearance at the South Cariboo Community Fall Fair, the inaugural R&R (Resources and Recreation) Fair, and participating in a fledgling project facilitated by the South Cariboo Food Security Committee. The food project saw the harvesting of 450 pounds of potatoes, and a good haul of carrots and cabbage, she notes, for use by the Soupe de Tour and

going to happen,” she explains of the process. “It’s been quite interesting. I think it has helped me develop my own paintings of landscapes of the Cariboo. “I appreciate painters who can paint detail and realism. I just can’t do it. I start to take off with my imagination.” Wickingstad was one of eight local artists who opened their homes to the public to show artwork during a “Studio 2 Studio” tour in 108 Mile Ranch, organized by the South Cariboo Health Foundation in September. It’s her first time at the Showcase Gallery, and the artist says she’s excited about it. “It’s really been fun.” In an artist statement related to the show, Wickingstad writes, “As as well as mandalas, I love painting the beauty that surrounds us daily in the Cariboo and snapshots from my travels with husband David.” She adds, as a recent grandmother, she is looking forward to painting with her granddaughter, Gaven Crites photo India. Anyone interested in her paintings can contact 108 Mile Ranch painter Cindy Wickingstad is the featured artist this month at the Wickingstad at 250-791-5308 or via e-mail at Showcase Gallery located inside the South Cariboo Business Centre in 100 Mile House.

Cindy Wickingstad doesn’t struggle much to find inspiration. While hanging some of her paintings in 100 Mile House recently, the 108 Mile Ranch artist said there is an endless supply of things she wants to paint. So much so, she “can’t keep up with it.” Her work is currently on display for the month of November at the Showcase Gallery located inside the South Cariboo Business Centre at 475 Birch Ave. The paintings represent two years of production and depict a variety of colourful scenes, landscapes and multilayered mandalas. “It’s more difficult than it looks,” Wickingstad says of creating the circular mandala pieces, which carry significant spiritual meanings throughout a number of cultures in the world. “There’s beauty and simplicity in symmetry. Through abstract you discover symbolism.” Wickingstad adds she tried to paint mandalas every day for six months last year. “I simply draw a circle and I don’t know what’s

Interesting snowfall It’s kind of a shame the Nov. 2-3 record snowfall didn’t come one week later during school break. However, it did make for some interesting scenery, power outages and impassable roads. It was definitely an unforgettable start to winter.

Happy takeover Interlakers send a warm welcome to Wayne and Donna Happy who took over from The Boulevard Cafe at Interlakes Corner on Oct. 16. The couple, who have two grown children, have only just arrived from Stony Plain, Alberta. Now named Hap’s Diner, the small cafe is open Wednesday to Sunday, and as Wayne explains, “The Boulevard Cafe was fine dining. We’re just regular food, quantity, quality, and a fair price.”

Food drive rescheduled The unprecedented snowfall also forced the cancellation of Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department’s annual food drive, which has been rescheduled for Nov. 17. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., firefighters will go door to door to collect nonperishable food items or cash for Interlakes Christmas

Adapting and succeeding Gaven Crites


Free Press

Members of the 100 Mile House & District White Cane Club Blind Curling Team are knocking off the summer rust and honing their skills ahead of a provincial tournament in Vancouver in January. This is the local team’s fourth season competing in the BC Blind Sports and Recreation Association. They are 2013 and 2011 provincial champions and they’re hoping for more success this year. During a recent Friday morning practice at the 100 Mile Curling Club, Lori Fry said it’s all coming together for the team, made up mostly of novice curlers. “The ice is always unpredictable whether it’s fast or slow and it can be deceiving, especially when your vision is playing games with you already. Over the summer, you sometimes wonder if you’ve lost your skill and knowledge, but it comes back to you.” The team’s skip, Jim Vinson, is the most experienced curler of the bunch. He says it’s a difficult sport to master, vision impairment or not. “Some people would say you throw your rocks and you go sit down, but there’s way more to it. Being visually-impaired, the learning curve is way longer.” That speaks to the different adjustments participants, such as Fry and Vinson, need to make. Individual curlers have different types of vision loss, so they implement different tricks and habits that work for them. Fry says they work with the lights in the rink and with a lot of verbal cues.


The Brakers, a local ladies recreational soccer team, played in Penticton during the Thanksgiving Day long weekend in the 34th Annual Oldtimer’s Tournament with teams from around the province for players 30 and older. Lianne Heales says it was 100 Mile’s best showing at the tournament since the Brakers began combining competitive and recreational teams. Janice Poggenpohl scored for the Brakers, which lost 3-0, 6-0 and 3-1. Shelly Morton and Laura Lanzoni are credited with some amazing performances.

Sighted guide Joey Seiler and curler Lori Fry, part of the 100 Mile House & District White Cane Club Blind Curling Team, practised with other teammates at the 100 Mile Curling Club on Nov. 1.

“I have to be careful because I only have a tiny little bit of sight in one eye left. I can only sweep in a certain direction. You adapt. If you want to do something you just keep adjusting it to work for you.” The group also receives help from sighted guides and members of the 100 Mile Curling Club. On this morning, Joey Seiler sweeps and

assists with communicating where the skip wants other shooters to place their stones. “It’s a sport that can be adapted quite easily to the visually-impaired,” Vinson says of curling. “Basketball, not so much. Volleyball, forget it. “But this shows these people can do something. They have some abilities.” After the BC champi-

onships – which include teams from Prince George, Kelowna and Vancouver – in January, the 100 Mile House club is heading to a national tournament in Ottawa in February. “I think we’ll have a fairly good shot at it,” Vinson says. “Some days none of us can do anything. Other days, when everyone is on their game, we’re a pretty good team.”

As for Fridays at the 100 Mile Curling Club, other visually-impaired people are encouraged to come out and participate. “A lot of people lose their sight and become shut-ins,” Vinson explains. “Well, you can come out and curl; you just need to make adaptations. [This team] is a good display of that all the way around.

Player development part of KIJHL experience A number of 100 Mile House Wranglers players were called up recently by their British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) affiliates. Goalie Kristian Stead and forward Luke Santerno were part of the Merritt Centennials lineup for games last weekend, while forwards Donovan Law and Connor Sloan were in the lineup for the Prince George Spruce Kings.

Wranglers coach/general manager Doug Rogers says the moves represent a great opportunity for the players and validate the direction of the Wranglers organization with respect to player development. “To have four players playing in the BCHL just 20 games into our inaugural season says volumes about the quality of players that 100 Mile House has representing the com-

munity.” Wranglers goalie Nathan Warren is affiliated with the BCHL’s Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Rogers says player development is an integral part of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL), which the Wranglers joined as an expansion club this season. Although having key players potentially out of the lineup and

on the ice for teams in different leagues in the middle of a season may seem like a contrary move in some respects, Rogers says it’s all part of the process. “The point of bringing in young guys is to help develop them for the next level. The way I look at it is if we can get an opportunity for one of Continued on 30

A men’s hockey tournament will see teams from three divisions – 35-plus, 45-plus and 55-plus – take the ice at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre from Nov. 15 to 17. Organizers said the idea is to have fun and bring in teams from outside the area. “There are teams that have come back for years and years,” says Shawn Reid. “We just like to get out there and have some fun.”

HOOPS PICKING UP Every week new players have been dropping in for community basketball, which goes at the 100 Mile House Junior Secondary gym on Monday nights. Organizers say more adults and senior secondary school students of all skill levels are welcome. The idea is having fun and learning the sport. There is no fee to participate in the co-eds games. Action tips off at 7 p.m. For more information, call Rick Barker at 250-395-3244 or Josh Dickerson at 250-395-1353.

Old Stars Hockey Tournament generates friendly competition

Gaven Crites Free Press

Teams from Kamloops, Salmon Arm and Chilliwack are coming to town for an annual 100 Mile Old Stars Hockey Tournament. The men’s tournament will see teams from three divisions – 35-plus, 45-plus and 55-plus – take the ice at

the South Cariboo Rec. Centre from Nov. 15 to 17. A ladies tournament, organized by the South Cariboo Female Hockey League, is taking place simultaneously in at Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena in Lac la Hache. 100 Mile Old Stars Hockey Tournament organizer Shawn Reid says the tourney has been successful for

many years. “The idea is to bring teams in from outside the area just to have some fun and play some hockey. There are teams that have come back for years and years.” Fourteen teams are expected to compete. Reid plays on the Old Stars 35-plus team. “We’ve always been competitive in our age group and we’ve got

Several Wranglers gaining Junior A experience in BCHL the newest of 20 Junior B teams in the KIJHL. The BCHL is a Junior A league that includes 16 teams, mostly located in the southern part of the province with Prince George the northernmost club. Local fans are also probably familiar with the Prince George Cougars and Kamloops Blazers, members of the Western Hockey League (WHL), a major junior league that includes 22 teams based in Western Canada and the Northwestern United States. The WHL is part of the Canadian Hockey League, which oversees the highest level of junior hockey in Canada.

our guys at the next level, it produces another opportunity for a kid from somewhere else who wants to come and play Junior B.” “It’s all driven by their hard work; we’re just trying to facilitate it for them and help them find their way.” The KIJHL is one of three Junior B hockey associations in the province. Along with the KIJHL, top teams from the Pacific Junior Hockey League and the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League compete in the Cyclone Taylor Cup tournament, which decides the top Junior B team in the province. The Wranglers are

a bunch of guys from around the area who are good hockey players. “We just like to get out there and have some fun. It’s always nice to win, but winning isn’t what it’s all about.”

Down to the wire, Wranglers beat Heat 5-4

Gaven Crites Free Press

Back in town after a 7-3 loss to the Summerland Steam the night of Nov. 10, the 100 Mile House Wranglers called a team meeting. It was late, but the matter of the club’s habitual mid-game struggles had to be remedied. “We sat in a room and the kids said they had it under control. They came up with a plan to sort out the second period issues we’ve had lately,” explains coach/ general manager Doug Rogers. “To their credit, they did.” The Wranglers beat the Chase Heat 5-4 at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on Nov. 11. If they didn’t play good hockey for a consistent 60 minutes, it was pretty close to that. “Our team came out in the second for once,” says Michael Lynch, who scored a second period goal for 100 Mile House and was named top player of the game. “We’ve had a rough time throughout the second period and we came out to play today. Everyone wanted to win and we put in a full 60 minutes.” Not to say the win was an easy one. The Wranglers were up 3-1

after one period and 5-3 after two. Chase scored at the 12:25 mark in the third to pull within one. 100 Mile House was down a man on penalties for a total of four minutes and 35 seconds after that, which created some tense and exciting moments for the hundreds of fans in attendance. Credit went to a consistently impressive goalie, Nathan Warren, and strong and relentless penalty killing units. “I always have those nerves in the third, especially when we have a one goal lead,” defenceman Kenny Nordstrom says following the game. “But, we have Nathan Warren in net, and he always makes those key

saves for us, even when we let him down.” Nordstrom adds keeping focus, in the dressing room between periods and on the ice, was another big part of the Wranglers success Monday night. “We knew it was a division game and we needed the points.” With close to a minute left and an empty net at the Chase end, Lynch fired a shot down the ice from his defensive zone. It looked good most of the way but caught the post. In a way, both teams got lucky on the play. It was no goal, but it wasn’t icing either. Rogers talked about the team “getting a break” after the game. But he

also stressed the credit his players deserved bouncing back from the Summerland loss. “It’s a character builder for us to be able to hold on and battle through some adversity.”

Forward Donovan Law is one of the newest additions to the Wranglers roster. He scored a goal in the first period. “I think we’re a hard working team,” Law says of his new club. “I think what’s going to get us most of our wins is our hard work.” Mathieu Longhurst scored twice for 100 Mile House and Luke Santerno added one. Assists on the night went to Lane Van de Wetering, Tyson Levesque, Cole Zimmerman, Robert Orrey, William Orrey, Braeden St. Louis, Warren and Nordstrom. The Wranglers (109-0-3) meet the Heat again in Chase on Nov. 15. The club’s next home game is Nov. 23 hosting the division leading Kamloops Storm.

Philippines flattened by typhoon LOOK Victims in Tacloban include former resident's relatives

Carole Rooney Free Press

The mighty and devastating power of a typhoon that ravaged the Philippine islands on Nov. 8 hits close to home for many people in Canada, including a South Cariboo family. Aliel Leslie, who lived in 100 Mile House for 18 years and now resides in Kelowna, is formerly from the island city of Tacloban, where authorities estimate the typhoon killed 10,000 people. It also reportedly destroyed or severely damaged virtually every structure in the city. Aliel says her sister and brother-in-law, Alma and Massey Grafil, live there with their two grown children. They lost their home and their printing-press business when both were wiped out by the typhoon, she explains. “Their office is damaged, their house is gone, everything is gone. “The water went right to the rooftop of their house, so they were right on the top of the house. I think they hurt themselves, they have cuts of their feet, so they

are at the hospital.” With area communications down, no direct contact with Tacloban is possible. However, Aliel’s niece (from another sister), Sheena Montallana, has been bringing food to the family victims from her home – a four-hour’s drive away – and then sends reports on their status to Canada. “They are going to be alright, but it will take a while. And, they are having surgery and they’re not even giving them [anaesthetic] so they won’t feel the pain. It has been awful.” Aliel has many

friends in the worst-hit area of Tacloban, where she lived and attended university, as well as family in other areas of the storm-stricken Philippines. “I’ve been crying every day since I saw that in the news [on] the Filipino Channel ... it’s been very, very sad, because Tacloban is really close to our hearts and it’s just devastating for everybody. “From the small town where my parents are, they are sending food to my sisters, and supplies for their families, because there is no food, there is nothing.” While it’s the largest city in Leyte province, Tacloban is accessible only by bridge, Aliel notes, which has now been closed to all but foot traffic – a five-kilometre walk to the city for Sheena and others trying to bring help and

family support to victims. “Even the government in the city, they cannot do anything, because they are the victims themselves. "My city is 95 per cent gone. My heart is just aching; I can’t even eat.” Aliel’s daughter, Lisa Leslie was in Manilla completing a modelling contract when the typhoon hit, Aliel says, but left the typhoon-ravaged country to return home on Nov. 12. The Government of Canada has pledged to match donations to relief charities registered in this country, so Aliel says for anyone who wishes to help, that is the best way to do so. All Canadian charity registrations can be verified online at www. lstngs/menu-eng.html. “They can go through an organization that’s

The first meeting of the newly organized 70 Mile & Area Community Fund Society was held at Seventy Mile Access Centre on Nov. 2.

An election of officers was held and the new executive includes: president Gail Moseley, vice-president Sue Wheeler, and secretarytreasurer Robin Rusaw. Dennis Tupman, Vic Popiel and Shelly McKeown were elected as directors. The fund began when the 70 Mile Elementary School Parents Advisory Council and the Jackrabbit Club disbanded and donated their remaining funds to the community. Money was also collected at the memorial service for Joel Curson, and other donations were received periodically. The fund now has a balance of $6,435. The money was deposited with the Kamloops Foundation in the name

of the 70 Mile & Area Community Fund. Sally is working with the Northern Initiative Trust (NIT) to double the fund balance, and the higher the balance, the more we will receive from NIT.

Donations can be sent to the 70 Mile & Area Community Fund Society, PO Box 29, 70 Mile House, B.C., V0K 2K0, or to Kamloops Foundation, 70 Mile & Area Community Fund, PO Box 15, Kamloops, B.C., V2C 5K3.

She married the love of her life, Jim Rendall, in 1942 and they had four children. The family moved from North Vancouver to a ranch near 100 Mile House in 1957. She worked at the telephone office in town in 1959 and the Post Office from 1962 to 1966. Dorothy returned to the profession she loved, and was one of nine registered nurses working at the new 100 Mile Hospital when it opened in June 1966. In 1976 she was elected to the Provincial Board of the Old Age Pensioners Organization and in 1979 she wrote a letter to the 100 Mile House Village Council outlining the desperate need for a senior’s long-term care facility in the area. Century Care Society was formed and in 1986 the seven bed Mill Site Cottage was opened in the old nurses dorm, spearheading a soon to be formed centre for senior care in the Cariboo. She became a Marriage Commissioner in 1987 and later that year was named Citizen Of The Year by the 100 Mile House Chamber Of Commerce. Dorothy wrote a book for her family of her life experiences that was eventually put into the library at the University of British Columbia. Our family would like to thank Dr. Street and give special heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Fischer Place for their years of care. We are also extremely grateful for the kindness of Mom’s friends Virginia, Walter, Gayle and Maggie. At Mom’s request there will be no service. Condolences can be sent to the family care of

Winter starting to test endurance of residents South Green Lake

Gail Potter


Winter is starting to knock on our doors as the shallows on the west end of Green Lake are starting to form a thin layer of ice and we had our first snowfall on the lake. Hazardous road

conditions on Nov. 2 contributed to about a four-hour power outage along the South Green Lake Road and tested our driving ability on very slippery pavement. By 4 p.m., they still had not been plowed. Remember to leave earlier, take your time and slow down when conditions are not safe. Also, don’t forget to feed the birds now and keep your animals away from that thin ice.
