Since July 8th, 2013, there have been at least six train accidents involving the transport of hazardous material in Canada, the worst being a runaway train, of 72 tank cars, owned by the Maine & Atlantic Railway (unmanned at the time) loaded with crude oil that crashed and exploded killing 47 people and destroying half of the downtown of the community Lac-Megantic, Quebec. Ottawa is now set to move with plans to

give municipalities more information about potentially dangerous train cargo in their communities. New guidelines are aimed at making freight companies more transparent about the materials they are transporting through towns, allowing municipalities to be able to plan accordingly for any accident preparedness needed. With train traffic carrying all types of cargo including hazardous and flammable material right through Castlegar, perhaps this community needs to be on the inside

track to adequately prepare for any unforeseen calamity. Or better still, reduce the risk of any potential accident or misfortune before it happens. Castlegar Fire Chief Gerry Rempel has been contacted about this matter and he provided answers to many questions. He says there is a Municipal Emergency Plan in Castlegar to deal with any serious accidental event. He described how the city and Fire Department have always had an excellent working relationship with the Canadian Pacific Rail-

way (CPR), including joint training and exercises. The chief says there is a manifest for each train car which includes the cargo type and any hazardous material, which is available to the Fire Department in case of emergency. The railroad has its own emergency teams who would be coming from Cranbrook and/ or Calgary, and so the fire department would be the first responders responsible for public safety. Rempel explained that the CPR has always (in his time of 22 years as

Fire Chief) been open and forthcoming with any information needed. “It is in the best interests of both of us,” he said. As for CP Rail, live comment was not available as of press deadline, but the following statement was retrieved from its website: “CP welcomes Transport Canada’s directive and, as a result of the recent steps we took to strengthen our railway’s operating procedures, we are in full compliance of what was announced by the federal agency.

Mauve Friday is Coming. Black Friday will never be the same.

jim sinclair Castlegar News Editor

The latest in a sequence of local public information sessions on the Columbia River Treaty was held on Nov. 7 at the Sandman Hotel in Castlegar. A sizable turnout was expected and that’s what materialized. The international agreement, signed in 1964 is an open-ended, or ‘evergreen’ arrangement, that will continue in perpetuity unless ended by one country or the other. To terminate the treaty (which was started to coordinate flood control and provide hydro-electric power generation on both sides of the border) ten years notice is required, which means 2024 is the soonest it could happen – if the process is followed and action begins next year. The strongest public sentiments aired at the Sandman Hotel forum seemed to relate to fluctuating water levels in Lower Arrow Lake. The issue, of course, is a complex one with few outright simple answers. With that in mind the host of the meeting, Kathy Eichenberger, Executive Director of the Columbia River Treaty Review was asked the following questions on the controversial topic. Bullets, which follow, denote her responses. How would you describe the public response to these forums, overall. Where in the Basin would you say has the keenest interest in the treaty? • Based on the feedback forms we received from community meeting attendees, and what we heard from Basin residents during the community meetings, most people feel that the draft Columbia River Treaty Review public consultation report includes or mostly includes the issues and concerns important to them. Participation compared

to the previous three rounds was lower in some communities and greater in others. H Here’s what the people of Grand Forks, at least those replying to this poll about a rainbow sidewalk like the one being done in Castlegar, think of the idea: http://www.grandforksgazette.ca/opinion/poll/ owever in total the engagement from residents across the basin shows a continued interest and desire to have a say in the future of the Treaty. Those who attended were very engaged and provided the Province with good feedback. Approximately 75 people attended the Castlegar meeting, almost 30 from Selkirk College. Are there more of these sessions scheduled? • There will be one more community session in Valemount on November 14 after which there are no other community sessions planned in the near future. Basin residents can continue to provide comments and feedback via our website blog (gov.bc.ca/columbiarivertreaty), by email at columbiarivertreaty@gov. bc.ca, by telephone to 250953-3368 or by mail at Columbia River Treaty Review, PO Box 9314 Stn Prov Govt, Victoria BC, V8W 9N1.

When and how will the decision be made whether or not to terminate the treaty? • The Columbia River Treaty Review team will provide its recommendation to Cabinet in mid-December. Cabinet will make a decision following its review of the recommendation and a consideration of all options. The US entity will be providing its recommendation to the US Department of State by the end of December. It is our understanding that the Department of State will spend several months on an internal review of future options for the Columbia River Treaty. What has the public consensus been to this point? • Most attendees at community meetings have expressed an interest in continuing the Treaty in order to negotiate improvements. It must be a huge challenge to try and keep everyone happy. I heard a fair bit about Lower Arrow Lake levels, and the level of 1435 feet described as desirable by some. (Is that really how deep it is?) How high/low has the level been in the last several years? • Full pool at Arrow Lakes Reservoir is at 1444 feet. Normal annual reservoir fluctuations in recent years have been roughly 45 feet.

BC Hydro’s water licence allows for a total fluctuation of 66 feet (1378 – 1444 ft), although levels over the last 5-10 years have rarely fallen below 1400 feet. During the Columbia Water Use Planning process, the ideal Arrow Lakes Reservoir level for water-based recreation was 1435-1440 feet, although residents also said that levels down to 1425 ft are acceptable for recreation as long as access (primarily boat ramps) is provided. While almost all residents would like to see less fluctuation in the reservoir’s level there is not a consensus on at what level the reservoir should be maintained.

Robbery at pharmacy submitted RCMP

On Wednesday Nov. 13 at about 11:15 a.m. a male entered the Shoppers Simply Pharmacy at #117- 1983 Columbia Ave. Castlegar and pulled out, what is described as shotgun, demanding money and prescription medication. The employees followed the male’s directions and allowed him to leave with some medication and an undisclosed amount of cash. The male entered through the front of the store exiting via the rear door, which faces east. The male is described as early 20’s, approx. 5’ 8”, slim build. At the time he was wearing a grey and dark blue winter coat, unknown length, dark colored pants, either sweats or jeans, wearing dark colored gloves, his face was covered with an unknown fabric or mask. No one was physically injured during the robbery. Patrols of the community have failed to locate a suspect at this time. Anyone with information is asked to call the Castlegar RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Candidate commits to MP race CRAIG LINDSAY Grand Forks Gazette

She may have a similar name as the man she hopes to replace, but Margaret Maximenko is looking at building her own name in federal politics. On Nov. 4, Maximenko announced her intention to run for the NDP nomination in the newly named riding South Okanagan West Kootenay (SOWK). The federal riding is currently called B.C. Southern Interior and represented by NDP Member of Parliament (MP) Alex Atamanenko, who recently announced he was retiring at the end of his current term. “I’ve been a long time activist,” said Maximenko. “I came to Canada as an immigrant at the age of nine; I understand what this country has to offer and what it has provided the citizens of this country for a long time. I’ve been watching that disintegrate and it’s been causing me some distress. We can do better. I don’t believe I have all the answers – but I believe I can be part of the solution.” Maximenko said she’s been recruited many times over the years to go into federal politics, and she’s also been a recruiter. “I think it’s a great opportunity to represent this area,” she said. “I have a lot of experience in the role of representing constituents. The time is right for me.” Maximenko grew up in a political family with a strong political culture. She recalls being 16 when she was first recruited by Stanley Orrice to run her first campaign. “The bug was set,” she said. “although I didn’t get back into it in a big way until 1986 when I began more campaign work and it snowballed from there.”

Margaret Maximenko Submitted

In 1990, Maximenko was nominated for Area C (Christina Lake) director for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary which she really enjoyed. “That was a wonderful job with great opportunities,” she said. “Through that, I was selected as the local government spokesperson for the commission on resources and the environment, which Mike Harcourt and Stephen Owen set up to attempt to quell the war in the woods. It was a multistake holder process that lasted over two years and I was selected to represent the five regional districts that make up the Southeastern quarter of the province.” Maximenko was born in Oakland, California and moved to Grand Forks at the age of nine with her family. She began her business career as a property manager at the age of 20. With her husband she eventually ended up operating a retail operation, three contracting companies, and a manufacturing plant which employed over 100 people over four years. Maximenko knows that taking over from Atamanenko will be a daunting task for anyone, but she is eager to try. “Alex Atamanenko leaves an amazing legacy that would be my honour to continue,” she said. “Alex has served the

“As the human-capital-intensive services sector

constituents of the BC Southern Interior with determination and grace and I believe he has the most effective track record of any MP in our corner of the world.” Maximenko adds that part of the reason she is announcing her candidacy so early is because Atamanenko has said he will work with the NDP candidate. “Once the nomination process is completed and the candidate is in place, Alex will work with that candidate and provide a wonderful opportunity,” she said. “It’s kind of like an internship. That alone is exciting.” Maximenko has been traveling through the South Okanagan West Kootenay riding area and has enjoyed meeting and talking with different people throughout the region. Despite the large geographical area, she says she is positioned well in Grand Forks to reach constituents three hours away in Penticton as well as three hours away in Trail/ Fruitvale and even in Nakusp to the Northwest. Maximenko lists her top goals as being: To represent all the constituents in the SOWK region; To work to restore Canada’s standing in the world which has deteriorated significantly under the Harper regime; To focus efforts to support our environment; and address the issues around growing inequality that is rapidly eroding the middle class in our country. “I look forward to meaningful input from across the riding as I begin this adventure, and I will do everything in my power to build upon Alex Atamanenko’s accomplishments during his (tenure) as our MP,” she said.

continues to grow; as workers’ mobility increases; as baby boomers vacate their corner offices, decreasing the supply of experienced managers; the long-held notion that HR would become a truly strategic function in business is finally being realized.1”

Roll on, safely

Accidents are an accepted part of life. While increasing levels of time, effort and expense are devoted to reducing the liklihood of accidents – they will always occur, pretty much anywhere they can happen. Every day, every moment that goes by between the times of stress, confusion and sorrow caused by vehicular accidents is something to be grateful for. Castlegar, like any community with a railway going through it, is suseptible to significant damage in the event of a derailment, especially with the toxic cargo so commonly carried on local trains. Up until the catastrophy of several months ago in Quebec, how many would have been familiar with the small town of Lac Megantic? From now on it will be identified as the place practically blown off the map by exploding oil-filled rail cars. Many lives were lost and many years will go by before any kind of recovery is possible for the town. The stark truth is that trains can’t be guaranteed to stay on rails any more than cars can be guananteed to stay on roads. It’s an issue of the public interest that rises and falls according to the location and severity of the latest incident. Steps that can boost public confidence in our rail system are to make sure maintenance is up to date, and for authorities, when questioned on the matter, to be forthcoming and informative. After all, a citizen walking along the tracks is hardly qualified to assess the condition/safety of the railway. In matters like this it’s somewhat reassuring to hear from fire chief Gerry Rempel about the good relationship the city has with CP Rail. (See pA1.) We want to hear from you.

Off the Line - Karen Haviland

Living Humbly and Happily Anyone who knows me will vouch that I am not a high maintenance type of gal. I don’t get my hair styled on a regular basis, nor do I suntan, or get manicures or pedicures. In fact, two weeks ago I got my eyebrows waxed for the second time in my life, and I only did that because, let’s just say that things were getting way beyond my control and the mirror was yelling at me each morning. As far as shoes go, I own three pairs – my runners, a pair of old beat up Crocs and some kick-butt leather boots. Personally, I just don’t see the need for a gazillion pairs of shoes, especially when there are people in this world, in Canada even, who struggle putting shoes on their children’s feet. We live humbly, my husband and I, and I like that just fine. Gone are the days when I would hungrily stare through storefront windows at china, crystal and other “must have” goodies. Nowadays, for me, life is about simplicity and living each day to its fullest. While I was taught perfectly good manners from the very day I could sit at the kitchen table, my folks ensured that I would never know the embarrassment of not knowing which eating utensil to use. My mother was especially keen about that for a good reason. The child of immigrant parents, Cindy Amaral Production Manager

Sandy Leonard Production

my mother related to us children on numerous occasions about a particular incident that happened to her as a young woman. It seems mom and a friend had, for one reason or another, decided to splurge on a fine meal in a fine restaurant. She had just left home several months earlier to join the service and with a bit of money in her pocket wanted to experience for the first time in her life, the pleasure of dining out at a fancy establishment. Mom took extra care that evening before embarking on her adventure. Time and care was spent on her makeup and which clothes to wear to such an event. She was ready to join the world of luxury, or so she thought. Here comes her embarrassing moment; mom had ordered something which required the use of her fingers to eat and so she was surprised when the waiter brought her a bowl of soup - lemon soup. Not wanting to make a fuss, mom chose to ignore the mistake and just quietly drink her soup. Well, it turns out that the “soup” wasn’t soup at all. It was a finger bowl of warm lemon water for washing off her fingers after eating the messy food she had ordered. I remembered this story about 20 years ago when I had the occasion to eat at a particularly fine restaurant in Vancouver. I was there on business and travelling alone when I, too, de-

cided to splurge and see what true fine dining was all about. I got educated that meal, real educated. The restaurant was beautiful and full of crystal chandeliers and other such finery. After being seated by the maître d’ and ordering my meal, I realized that there was a man standing quietly behind my right shoulder. Feeling extremely uncomfortable and awkward I pretended that the man wasn’t there. But he was there, and I really couldn’t ignore him, especially when, after I finished eating the bread that was served to me he handily whipped out a little whisk from his back pocket and began to sweep the fine tablecloth to rid it of the crumbs I had dropped. Never, in my whole life, had I imagined such a thing. For the whole dinner, I had a waiter at my personal beck and call. It was awkward, truly and definitively awkward. I smile now at my ignorance, but there was a lesson to be learned there that day. I learned that I was who I was. I didn’t need finery and “things” in life. I’m a paper plate kind of woman. Yup, that and plastic utensils suit me just fine. Nor do I need the best money can buy. Being me, just plainly being me, is good enough for me and knowing that has helped me live my life in a way in which I hope would make my parents proud. Jim Sinclair Editor

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

To clarify an earlier point

vision. It might be beneficial to seek out a linkage to North Vancouver, based on the historic threads that connect us. As for all the other advisory signs, the City could do well to imitate Mahon Park in North Vancouver. Each entry point to the park displays a large and attractive sign which includes a map, a short history, and the rules to follow. This is all presented in as positive a way as possible. There are no additional prohibition signs along the trails to offend a sensitive soul. No unnatural clutter in the landscape. A park needs to cater to everyone, young and old. I hope that future development plans include an arboretum and some formal gardens that would add variety to the lodgepole pine ecosystem. Nelson’s Gyro Park is an excellent example of a blend of natural vegetation, introduced species, and horticultural displays. Our City fathers should consider the value of retirees who may wish to settle in our fair city if our parks and recreational amenities cater also to the slow and thoughtful person, who is attracted to peace and solitude. I guess I am getting that way myself as I am not terribly attracted to flying-through-the-air sports and I tend to tone my muscles naturally by the task at hand. And, yes, I do like to loiter now and then.

I wrote my original letter to point out the apparent lack of an overall vision for signage in Twin Rivers Park. The sign panels I was asked to develop in 1999 were meant to anchor formal viewpoints along the Millennium Walkway. The result was later admired by a tourism consultant hired by the City, who pointed out: ‘always tell a story.’ My stories are further amplified on my non-profit website, which showcases Castlegar through windows into the past. Our city is handicapped by the lack of obvious reminders of our past and the scarcity of the historic ambience so prevalent in other Kootenay cities. I have dedicated myself to counterbalancing that deficit through my earlier work on community trails, starting with Waldie Island. Not being able to develop the interpretive infrastructure for my trails along the Kootenay River was a great disappointment, as I am convinced that that is the best corridor for the Trans Canada Trail eastward. Presently we have in the park six formal panels which were developed by me (if we include Zuckerberg Island) and four that are more of an advertisement in nature. My original point was, that the latter signs compete with the -Walter Volovsek, more valuable ones for attenCastlegar tion and a new visitor may not proceed to seek out the remainder once he is let down by one of them.

Blade bunch is beholdin’ The Castlegar Skating Club held its second annual West Kootenay Learn to Skate Seminar on Nov. 2 at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. This was an all day event packed with technique-building on-ice instruction in jumps, spins and stroking with club coaches Sabrina Hinson and Andrea Poznikoff and Kimberly Club coach Lori Stolson. Skaters received a certificate of participation and took part in an off-ice dance class led by renowned dance instructor Margo Larose. A nutrition session with Jennifer Keirstead, Holistic Nutritionist, was included for skaters and parents. The club hosted 55 skaters, as well as Dancy Pants dress and skating accessory boutique and Blade Runner Skate Sharpening and Accessories. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our local businesses that made generous donations to our event: We would like to thank the coaches, families, parents and volunteers as well as the Kootenay Region (Skate Canada), Castlegar Recreation Complex and staff for helping make this event a success again this year. We look forward to hosting again next year.

Maximenko is still awaiting word from Elections Canada for confirmation of her nomination. “My paperwork is in play,” she said. “The final details from Elections Canada about which side of the road people are on as they determine the new boundaries and such is holding things up but it’s in the works.” The date for the next federal election is in October of 2015, although the party in power could move that forward.

My husband and I are entering the real estate market and we have several must-haves on our shopping list. At the very top is walkability which includes walking distance to a grocery store, elementary school, and playground; a safe neighbourhood which includes accessible sidewalks, street lighting, and cross walks; and close proximity to public transit. Some of our friends have questioned why walkability is so important and this is what I tell them: Living in a walkable neighbourhood is good for your physical, social and mental health. Walkability encourages people of all ages to get outside and be more physically active. Currently, one in

three British Columbians is living with a preventable chronic illness like heart disease. Walking keeps us healthier and helps reduce our risk of chronic disease and obesity.

our neighbours. Having a playground down the street will make it easy for my children to be active and for our family to get to know other families in the neighbourhood. Social connections help build a safe and supportive community where neighbours shovel walks for each other and parents look after neighbourhood children when a little help is needed. Spending time in nature can also boost our mental well-being. Fresh air is calming whether it’s under the stars or the sun, in the wilderness or in our town centres. Not everyone is able to

hike up a mountain but smooth, paved sidewalks, benches and neighbourhood green spaces help make nature accessible to all and that can mean the difference between isolation and happiness. Walkability is at the top of our new home musthave list because we want to raise a family in a neighbourhood that promotes healthy living and a sense of community. Health is something that can happen every day… where we live, learn, work, and play.

The CTS model is a lighter car, made of high tensile steel. It is stiffer, safer, handles better, and above all, is more efficient.

Question

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motor’s flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

ELIGIBLE OWNERS

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

The temperature is starting to drop, the leaves are clogging up the streets and snow is beginning to fall in parts in parts of B.C. In winter, braking and stopping vehicles of all kinds is perhaps where most of us get into trouble. The tires play a critical role in stopping the vehicle, and so they need even more care and attention than in the other seasons. Most SUVs have a passenger car tire classification with M+S stamped on the sidewall, for Mud and Snow and are considered all- season tires. If it is not, your vehicle must be fitted with tires suitable for any type of climate, even the most severe ones. Contrary to popular opinion, a lower inflation pressure than normal does not improve tire traction

Brake early. Brake correctly. It takes more time and distance to stop in icy conditions. Watch for slippery bridge decks, even when the rest of the pavement is in good condition. Bridge

Truck Tires Tread Lightly in the Snow brakes, do not pump them in attempting to stop. The right way is to steer into the skid while applying the brake pedal evenly. Look farther ahead in traffic than you normally do. Actions by cars and trucks will alert you quicker to problems and give you a split second extra time to react safely.

Air purifiers are really air cleaners and won't remove gaseous pollutants like cigarette smoke. Since particles of tobacco smoke are designed to be inhaled into the lungs, they are quite small. The best protection from second-hand smoke is to not allow smokers to smoke in your house. We tend not to run to the doctor for every little symptom but some symptoms can't be ignored. These include the following; a persistent or high fever; shortness of breath; weight-loss that you can't explain; flashes of light in the eyes; sudden mental changes like confusion or disorientation. If you experience any of these, see your doctor right away. If you have a sore throat, it always feels worse in the morning because your throat gets dry overnight. To soothe a sore throat, keep it moist. Suck on lozenges or hard candies to stimulate saliva production. Drinking plenty of fluids is also important. If the sore throat persist for more than a few days, see your doctor. This year's flu vaccine will contain protection against strains of flu virus rather than the three we are used to in the past. Called a quadrivalent vaccine, it will contain vaccine to protect against two strains of both Influenza A and Influenza B. This new vaccine promises to be more effective for people over 65. When you need information about flu shots, our pharmacists are up to date on the current knowledge.

La Dolce Vita: Kiwi feels that BC needs more focus Submitted

When Al and Marleen Hoag went looking for a winemaker for their planned winery, they travelled to New Zealand. Someone with cool climate winemaking experience would fit the bill, and they headed south, custom brochures in hand. They visited winemakers, made some contacts and, on the last day of their trip, they stopped in at Floating Mountain Winery in the Waipara Valley. No one was around, so they left a brochure—it described the Creston Valley and the vineyard, with its various plantings, and the Hoags’ need for a winemaker—on the winery door. “We were away that weekend and came home,” Mark Rattray recalls. “I went out to the winery and there was a brochure stuck in the door. Al and Marleen had put together this little brochure

talking about a job opportunity in Canada. “They were on their way back to Canada, sort of slightly disappointed that they hadn’t really succeeded. But they got home to find an email from me. “ Now, with seven Creston Valley vintages behind him (he stayed in New Zealand in 2012 and consulted by Skype and email—his new wife, Christine, didn’t want him to leave home so early in their marriage), Rattray has a good grasp of the potential for the wine industry in the Kootenays. He also notes some vast differences in the marketplace. In the Creston area, he says, future vineyards will have to be site specific. “I think there are probably other spots that might do okay, but Al might just have selected the best site in the entire valley,” he said. To date, Creston Valley’s small wine industry

is clustered primarily around Skimmerhorn. Baillie-Grohman Estate Winery and its vineyard is next store, while John and Sandy Haley grow several acres of grapes just across the road. Most of their production is sold by contract. Wynnwood Cellars is located in Wynndel, about 15 minutes to the north and its primary vineyard is a few kilometers further north, on a hillside that slopes down to the shores of Duck Lake. The Skimmerhorn vineyard is planted to cool climate varieties—Gewurztraminer, Ortega, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Marechal Foch. It also includes some test plantings, including a row of Riesling. “I’d like to try doing a botrytis-affected late harvest wine,” Rattray says. But Creston Valley doesn’t have the moist air that promotes the fungus’ growth. The desired botrytis for winemak-

C A S T L E G A R

ers is referred to as Noble Rot. It settles on the fruits’ skin and promotes dessication, leading to highly concentrated flavours. Botrytis can occur naturally, but it can also be introduced to a vineyard with sprays. Rattray says part of his enjoyment in working at Skimmerhorn has come as a result of Al Hoag’s willingness to experiment. Earlier this year Hoag bought a still to produce alcohol, which he used to make a fortified Port-style wine by blending Marechal Foch and cherry wine. Now on the market, it’s called, cleverly, Old Koot. “Al has a good knack for marketing and he knows what his customers like,” he says. The New Zealand wine industry blossomed in the early 1980s, several years before BC’s renaissance began. “The NZ business is basically export because there’s no population. With 4 million people you’re not going to get very far. It’s difficult to start up a winery thinking you’re only going to sell in New Zealand. The first thing you notice when you get to the US or Canada is that you’ve got a population and that makes it a lot easier. The first time I got to the States I was gob-smacked— I could see these guys have got it made. Lots of people with so much money.” “Sauvignon Blanc still accounts for over 80 per cent of our exports,” he says. Pinot Noir has grown in popularity and quality, but neither is what emerging markets like China

are looking for. “They like big red wines, like Merlot,” Rattray says. By contrast, the vast majority of wine produce in BC is sold and consumed right here in the province. When we spoke about the debate about whether BC should continue with producing whatever varietals grow best in a given vineyard or to focus one or two varieties, Rattray leans toward the latter. “For a long time in New Zealand you’d have a vineyard and you’d grow every grape variety— you’d have 10 different varieties growing in exactly the same climate and exactly the same soil,” he laughs, shaking his head. “And it probably doesn’t work that well in the end, so you really probably ought to identify some grapes and push it.” Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir come immediately to mind, he says. With more than 40 years of winemaking experience it is clear that Rattray has enjoyed this latest phase of his career. Back home he and a partner run a winery supply business and he produces about 500 cases of wine under his own name, using grapes he purchases. And he hopes to continue in his role with Skimmerhorn. “Oh yeah,” he smiles, “I’d like to keep coming back as long as they’ll have me.” Author Lorne Eckersley is the publisher of the Creston Valley Advance, a Black Press publication.

Culture/Entertainment Corporations in our Heads - Tonight Submitted

Playing tonight (Nov. 14) at The Mir Centre for Peace – 7 p.m. The messages from corporations tell us hundreds of times a day, in ways we may not notice anymore, how to relate to each other and to ourselves; what to buy, how to feel, how to perceive and the kind of person to aspire to be. Can we use the theatre to become aware of these messages, and to change our relationships to them, to live healthier and more sustainable lives with each other, with ourselves, and with the planet? This project hopes to be more than just an investigation - we have a desire for Corporations in our Heads to move into transformative action! How? By making each event relevant, at a grassroots level, to each unique community in which it happens and for the local organizers to use that momentum to move forward on local community issues. Each event is the community’s creation. We are touring a process in which the whole evening of theatre emerges from the audience. Sounds heavy, but it’s a great deal of fun! What does this process look like? Corporations in our Heads has evolved from Augusto Boal’s (founder of the Theatre of the Oppressed)1 technique “Cops in the Head”. It works like this: After a short warm-up the audience is asked to offer sto-

ries out of their own experiences; stories in which the storyteller had to make a decision, and in that moment, they knew that the messages of corporations were affecting their choice in negative or unhealthy ways. The audience chooses the story that resonates the most and we bring that story to the stage. But first we need to agree on “branding”. Which Corporations are present in the space that night? Identifying the Brand helps us to understand the character as well as the messaging. The chosen moment is then theatricalized on stage and Diamond (in the role of Joker/facilitator) freezes the scene in a moment when the “corporate voices” appear to be present in the storyteller (the Protagonist). The Protagonist is then asked to identify what the loudest voice is saying, and to make a physical shape to represent that message. An audience member, who recognizes that message from inside his or her own experience, volunteers to become that shape on stage and develop the shape into a character. That character becomes the “voice of a corporation”. Another voice and another volunteer. We enter a very metaphoric space, yet space that has practical meaning in our lives. Using interactive techniques, if an audience member has an idea of how to disarm or evict a voice from “occupying” a space in our collective psyche, the audience member yells, “stop”. They then enter

the playing area and, taking the place of the Protagonist, try their idea. The audience member portraying a “voice of a corporation” responds authentically as a character taken from inside our heads, now in physical form on the stage, that is affecting our decision-making. We work through the voices one by one, peeling layers of complexity away as we go, exploring tactics to deal with the voices. This, in Augusto Boal’s words is one of many ways that “the theatre can make the invisible visible”. Who is The Joker: David Diamond co-founded Headlines Theatre (now Theatre for Living) in 1981 and has directed over 500 community-specific projects on issues such as racism, civic engagement, violence, addiction, street youth, intergenerational conflict and homelessness. He has worked throughout Canada, the USA and Europe, as well as in Namibia, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Rwanda, Palestine and Singapore, and has pioneered the development of live, interactive Forum television and web casting. He is the originator of Theatre for Living, a merging of Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, and his own life-long interest in systems theory. Theatre for Living recognizes communities are complexly integrated living organisms and invites them to engage in constructive social change, moving from various forms of violence to respectful engagement.

Sports Abbotsford product brings experience to Saints’ blue line

submitted

Castlegar, B.C. -- The Selkirk College Men’s Hockey program is pleased to announce a playing commitment from defenceman Stefan Virtanen (Abbotsford, B.C.) to attend Selkirk College and compete for the Saints beginning in January 2014 when the team returns from winter break to resume their 2013/14 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season schedule. Virtanen is a 6-foot-2, 200-pound blueliner who joins Selkirk following four seasons of Junior A hockey, most recently with the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Calgary Mustangs. He scored six goals and totaled 19 points and 74 minutes in penalties in 41 games last season, which he split between the Mustangs and the Drumheller Dragons. The 21-year old spent the two previous seasons with the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Flin Flon Bombers, where he suited up in 66 games before missing much of his 19-year old year due to injury. His junior career started in the BCHL, where he picked up two assists and 45 penalty minutes in 29 games with the Williams Lake Timberwolves. Overall, Virtanen brings 136 games of Junior A experience to the Selkirk defence 2.83corps. x5” His statistical totals include 11

goals, 21 assists and 207 penalty minutes. “I’m thrilled to add a player of Stefan’s character and experience level to our roster for the second half of this season and beyond,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “He’s a versatile defenceman who can fit in and thrive in all situations. He brings a tough, competitive attitude and he’s a heavy hitter, but he showed in the AJHL last season that he’s really developed the offensive side of this game as well.” Virtanen began the current season on a try-out with the Southern Professional Hockey League’s Mississippi Surge and got his first taste of pro hockey when he suited up in a number of preseason games. He plans to study Business Administration at Selkirk College. “I can’t wait to get to Selkirk and begin my college hockey

career,” says Virtanen, who describes himself as a quick, offensive, puck moving defenceman that plays with a physical edge. “I’ve heard nothing but good things about the college and team, and I’m looking forward to being part of a winning organization along with helping out in the community.” “My experience with the Mississippi Surge was fantastic. I learned what it takes to play at that level and how fast everything needs to be. I’m going to bring what I have learned to the Saints, develop into the best player I can be, and hopefully find a good pro opportunity after we win a few more championships.” The Saints are next in action on Saturday, November 16th when they host Simon Fraser University at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. Faceoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

George William Richards With sad hearts, the family of George William Richards of Castlegar wishes to announce his passing at Castleview Care Centre on Saturday, September 21, 2013, blessed with 87 years of life. George was born in London, England on May 31, 1926 to parents Ethel and Thomas Richards. He grew up in Toronto and moved to Trail in his early 20’s. In Trail, George met and on September 17, 1955 married Mila Makay, who was the center of his world. He was extremely proud of his 5 children and 12 grandchildren. George was employed as a computer technician with IBM for 40 years, based at Cominco. He was an electrician by training and a self-taught carpenter, mechanic, machinist and welder. In addition George would study, learn and excel at anything that caught his interest, including photography, biology, microbiology, chemistry and geology. He had a keen interest in social justice issues and was a human rights activist. He worked as a member of organizations including Amnesty International, KRUNA and Development and Peace. George was also a strong supporter of women’s equality. He made a difference to the lives of indigenous people in developing nations, through Teardrop Crafts. George loved the natural world and provided the opportunity for his children and grandchildren to experience it. He passed on his love of the natural world to his children and grandchildren by spending time on Kootenay Lake and by providing the cabin at Proctor. He was predeceased by his brother John Richards of Ottawa. Left to mourn his loss is his loving wife of 58 years Mila; his children, Gregory (Joanne) Richards, Louise (Fraser) Stewart, Beatrice (Gordon) Bibby, Timothy (Alix) Richards and Shirley (John) Amaral; grandchildren, Matthew, Andrew, and Rebecca Richards, Mary and James Stewart, Claire, Helen and Graham Bibby, Anton and Sabine Richards and Philip and Genevieve Amaral; extended family and many friends and acquaintances.
