Fortis workers feel the financial pinch Surveys seek Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It has been 140 days, or five months, since 30-year-old Scott Ross worked. “It’s been difficult. I know people have had to defer their mortgages. I know a few people with kids, powerline technicians with kids, have resorted to diets consisting mostly of hot dogs,” he said. Earning $28-an-hour, his job with FortisBC is supposed to be helping him save money for law school. Ross ran for city council while he was still at UBCO earning his politics, philosophy and economics degree, and is planning on re-entering school one year from September. Sitting through the five-month FortisBC strike was not in the plan. “It’s delaying your life for a year. I’m 30 years old. When you look back at your life and you realize that you’ve spent five months really not contributing to your career, your goals, even to a company, it impacts you,” he said. “I don’t even know how I’m going to put this on a resume.” For families, it has been considerably worse in his view. He’s talking about kids missing out on their hockey season because budgets are so tight. He’s heard of people leaving, accepting work that will take them far

LOCKED OUT FortisBC employee Scott Ross has been walking the picket line for the past five months. from their family. Powerline technicians and power dispatchers— the people who organize fixing the lines—are

the big, sought-after careers in the electrical side of the company. FortisBC has an electrical side and a gas side.

At $39 per hour, a powerline technician would make $312 per day without venturing into overtime; strike pay is

$100 per day. The strike does not preclude working elsewhere. Workers can take on a part-time job, but they are to report to the picket line daily for a fourhour shift. According to Ross, the submissions FortisBC made to the union indicate powerline technicians are underpaid by 10 per cent. One could earn more working for a contractor, but the work moves constantly and, at least for now, it’s not in Kelowna. For Bruce Reynolds, an electrician with the company for the last 12 years, the loss of income means major projects won’t get done around the house and the singlemother-of-four his family helps with Christmas bills and her childrens’ extra expenses likely won’t see as big a financial contribution. Reynolds worked hard for this job and he has a network of people who depend his income. A former construction worker, he commuted to Trail every week for four years so his family could stay in the Okanagan and he could secure full-time work with the company. “I believe that everybody should be able to own a home and set up some kind of roots so they can help the brothers and sisters and daughters and grandchildren when they come around,” he said.

insight for future growth Barry Gerding EDITOR

The time has come in Kelowna’s evolution for the Rutland community to embrace an updated and more vibrant identity, according local business leaders and residents. But what form that new identity should take and what exactly is it that can revitalize Kelowna’s eastern and highest populated suburb are questions a new public survey is hoping to answer. On Wednesday, The Rutland Unified Stakeholders Team outlined plans for the new survey that will be adminstered by fourth-year marketing students from UBC Okanagan. “The time has come to identify what residents, businesses and UBCO students need to live, work and play in a thriving Rutland community,” said Laurel D’Andrea, executive director of the Uptown Rutland Business Association and member of the TRUST group. “TRUST will explore areas such as shopping, services, health, financial entertainment, facilities, food and beverage.” The 10-question survey will be targeted at post-secondary students, businesses and local residents, with questions for each altered to provide feedback specific to their individual demographic segments. The UBCO students behind the surveys—Colin Gill, Connor Wain, Brett Haney and Rosanna Zhing, under the direction of university professor Ian Stuart— want to reach a wide cross-section of Rutland demographic groups to generate some consensus on how TRUST should move forward. The surveys will be launched online Nov. 15 and can be electronically filled out until 3 p.m. on Nov. 25. The surveys can be accessed at www.uptownrutland. com starting Friday. While there will be no printed version of the survey, those without access to a computer can fill out a printed version at the URBA office at 158 Valleyview Road. The office phone number is 250-451-9861. It is hoped that residents and business owners will circulate the surveys via social media to encourage a large response.

Moves to export cherries to China ‘encouraging’ CHERRY grower David Geen of Lake Country is busy pruning his thousands of cherry trees and planting new ones.A trial export of cherries to China this past year was encouraging, he said.

Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Canada’s largest cherry grower is bullish on the future of the industry. David Geen of Lake Country’s Coral Beach Farms is busy not only with the usual autumn tasks of pruning some 250,000 trees over the next few months, but also with preparing the ground for new trees to be planted next spring, as he expands his operation. Eventually, he’ll have doubled his current production, with cherries being harvested from more than 500 acres at different elevations and on sites with different attributes around the Central Okanagan. That will permit him to harvest cherries very early in the season from a southwest-facing slope on Highway 33, at a fairly low elevation— and very late in the season from his North Westside Road orchard, which is located above the valley and in the shadow of the hills. It’s in a pocket away from the lake’s influence, where the trees are buried in deeper snow through winter and begin to come to life later in spring than at many of his other sites. By lengthening the season at both ends, marketing the sweet red fruits is easier and it spreads out the harvest so not everything is being picked at the same time. That worked well this year, as the U.S. crop finished a couple of weeks earlier than usual, removing that competition from global markets— just as those cherries from North Westside Road were headed into the marketplace, he said. Much of his cherry crop is exported, so this year’s break-through into the China market is very important to him and he’s been involved as chair of the Market Access Committee of the B.C. Cherry Association to ensure the venture is a success. The agreement reached last year with the Chinese government opened the door to export of B.C. cherries into that market and is estimated to be worth $10 million, increasing to $20 million annually in the coming years. However, the amount of fruit shipped to Shanghai this year was small since it was a trial project, with only 400 tons sent from B.C., Geen explained.

JUDIE STEEVES/CAPITAL NEWS

During last summer’s trial season, a number of different protocols were instituted by the Chinese government to ensure no Cherry Fruit

Fly is exported with the fruit to China from B.C. That included the local industry hosting two inspectors from China so they could inspect fruit

from each orchard prior to it being shipped. Another incubation test was performed on cherries from each orchard involved in the export program at the Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland to ensure none of the fruit flies were present. This year’s restrictions made it difficult for some smaller growers to comply, but it’s hoped some of them will be removed now that a successful first year is over. The industry is now waiting for a formal report from China on how their inspectors felt this year’s export program went. Next year’s protocols for export will be discussed in Toronto when bilateral meetings are held with the Chinese on trade in early December. Only about seven B.C. growers were involved this year, including Geen and Dendy Orchards in Kelowna. “That market is critical to us,” said Geen. “Not only is there a big population, but there’s a middle class of about 450 million people and they have a palate for sweet cherries.” Cherry plantings in the valley have increased dramatically in recent years and there’s still considerable acreage being planted. As a result, markets must be found for those cherries. With that first season now over, Geen said the feedback has been positive, and no Cherry Fruit Fly was found in any of the fruit tested at PARC or by the inspectors at orchards around the valley. He’s said he’s very hopeful about the future of that export market. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Visiting speaker to examine digital world impact on consumer traits Millions of Canadians are wired to communicate in the digital world—but not without peril. On Nov. 26 at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, 7 p.m., UBC Okanagan will host visiting speaker Russell W. Belk who will talk about how the Internet af-

fects who we are online— our “extended self.” Belk, a consumer behaviour and marketing expert, believes our identities are heavily shaped by online activities, whether we’re posting photos on Instagram or rating movies on Rotten Tomatoes.

“The digital world affects who we are for ourselves, as well as for our friends, family, marketers, colleges, job providers, and governments,” he says, adding it’s still possible to have fun while carefully managing our digital selves,” he said.

Belk will also discuss the benefits and dangers of blogging, rating products, and posting on favourite networks such as YouTube, Flickr, and Facebook. An professor at York University, Belk teaches marketing at the Schulich

School of Business. He has been called one of the most prolific consumer behaviour and marketing scholars of the contemporary age. “Russ Belk, with his extensive and ongoing research on the concept of the self, is pos-

sibly the marketing expert we can turn to understand the phenomenon of the extended self in digital media,” said Annamma Joy, professor of marketing, faculty of management at UBCO. Belk’s free public talk is part of the ongoing

Visiting Speaker Series presented by UBCO’s Faculty of Management. Belk has authored more than 100 journal publications, several books, and numerous chapter contributions about consumer habits and the digital world.

tion of the fire he set did not match the Large Avenue home. Crown lawyers had argued the discrepancy was because he was confused by the substances he was on and also suggested other acts of vandalism and mischief in the area—tire tracks on a lawn, feces on paper in a mailbox and a wheelbarrow full of frozen food found nearby—should be considered when determining if Seberras-Pick lit the fire. Seberras-Pick did not admit to those acts, noted Cartwright, and said although the situation raises “grave” suspicion, it does not prove the young man set the house on fire.

on Feb. 16, 2012, one of the residents of a Large Avenue home in Black Mountain awoke to the sound of birthday balloons popping in the heat and discovered the house on fire, said Judge Jane Cartwright. The family of four escaped, but could have died in the fire, which caused between $200,000 and $300,000 damage, added the judge. The court heard the fire began in plastic furniture below a ground floor window at the rear of the home and crept up into the deck and the interior of the house. In an interview with police, Seberras-Pick admitted to lighting a purple deck on fire that night and described how he kneeled so he could light under the deck.

an offence. She did find that level of proof was met for the break and enter charge, and convicted SeberrasPick of illegally entering a Black Mountain basement suite early that morning. The court heard a Feedham Avenue resident awoke after hearing a noise and found a man standing in his kitchen. The resident yelled for his landlord and the two chased the intruder, who had a distinctive hairstyle, but lost sight of him. A police service dog later located the man at a Kelowna home and bags with items stolen from Feedham Avenue were found on the property, Cartwright said. Seberras-Pick also admitted he committed the crime to police, she noted. During that interview, he also spoke to police about damaging a vehicle by trying to set it on fire. Police later learned a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant had its side mirror damaged that morning and there were remains of a lighter found in the gas tank. While there were no witnesses to the attempted fire, Seberras-Pick’s description of the damage to a side mirror was consistent with what happened to the Galant, said Cartwright. As well, the fire start attempt occurred near the break and enter where Seberras-Pick was spotted. A pre-sentence report with a psychiatric component was ordered. Seberras-Pick returns to court Jan. 14 to set a sentencing date.

The result is an engineered surface designed to outperform natural slab granite that is heat, scratch and stain resistant – essentially maintenance free – and backed with the company’s Lifetime Warranty.

WEST KELOWNA

District asks residents to help with snow removal With temperatures dropping and flurries in the forecast, West Kelowna’s winter road maintenance begins. Residents can help with snow removal efforts by: • Making room for the plows: During times of heavy or persistent snowfalls, residents are asked not to park vehicles on street to ensure plows are able to efficiently remove snow from West Kelowna roads. Residents are asked to note that snow plows can’t avoid depositing snow in front of driveways when clearing streets. The district’s priority is to provide safe travel lanes for motorists. To minimize the amount of snow left in front of driveways, shovel snow to the left side (when facing the property) • Keeping sidewalks safe: Residents are required to clear snow from sidewalks and pedestrian accesses fronting their properties within 24 hours of snowfall. The district clears sidewalks and walkways adjacent to civic buildings and in the vicinity of select pedestrian accesses and parks • Placing garbage bins correctly: Waste collection bins should be placed in a cleared area near the curb whenever possible. Put out bins by 7 a.m. on the date of collection and remove snow from the lids. Do not place carts in an area where they will obstruct snow plows, traffic or pedestrians • Know and prepare for winter driving conditions:

Residents are asked to drive to suit the road conditions. When possible, plan for extra travel time during snowfall. Ensure you have appropriate winter tires and familiarize yourself with driving in winter conditions. The district has provided comprehensive information on its website—districtofwestkelowna.ca—regarding snow removal, including a snow clearing priorities map. Snow removal is conducted on a priority basis with the top priority for clearing being arterial and collector roads, transit routes and roads with steep grades. School zones, school bus routes, town centres and population centres are also prioritized before all other local roads. During times of heavy and persistent snowfalls, road crews must continue to focus on higher priority roads in the municipality, which can lead to a delay in snow removal on local roads. ••• On Tuesday, West Kelowna council unanimously voted to implement a community recognition program that will recognize those who assist West Kelowna residents with snow removal. Residents who have their sidewalks cleared by a neighbour or another resident will be able to nominate that person for a chance to win a prize at the end of the season.

▼ SNOW REMOVAL

Road contractor vows to be better Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

After experiencing a baptism by fire last winter, AEL is confident it’s taken the necessary steps to keep West Kelowna roads as safe as possible this winter. AEL began its road maintenance contract with West Kelowna Dec. 7, 2012. It then struggled to keep all of the district’s roads clear later that month. “Everybody recognizes things didn’t go as smoothly as one would’ve liked from the Dec. 7 changeover,” said Chris Anderson, roads and contract supervisor for the district. Last year the District of West Kelowna received more than 1,500 phone calls and e-mails regarding snow removal. Although there were a few compliments regarding the service being done by AEL, the majority of comments complained about roads being snowy or icy. The comments re-

On Jan. 22, AEL presented to council and accepted responsibility for the road maintenance issues and committed to an improved level of service for the following winter. “After (last) winter we went through our entire fleet; we went through our staffing; we went through our supplies; we looked at our methods,” said Dustin Khadikin, contract manager for AEL. “The guys took a huge

step forward this year making sure our trucks are prepared for winter.” As a result, AEL took out three key units, which caused workers a lot of grief last year, and brought in larger units to replace them. The company also looked at the way it deposits snow. “One of the frequent phone calls that we got was particularly (from residents) in cul-desacs,” said Khadikin. “They felt like they were being picked on because all the snow got

pushed their direction. We took all of our units and we put on two-way front plows…so we can now drag snow different directions.” AEL will also work to keep drivers on the same routes as much as possible, so they become increasingly familiar with the areas they’re responsible for. Mayor Doug Findlater said he looks forward to “much improved” snow removal this winter. “It was a perfect storm last year. The contractor signed very late in the process; the operator wasn’t quite ready,” said Findlater. Coun. Rick de Jong said he appreciates the effort being put forward by AEL. “When we entered into this agreement last year, it was dubbed to be a long-term business relationship,” said de Jong. “With the communication after what took place last year and all the effort that has taken place…I’m grateful and optimistic this is going to be a much better season.”

NEWS ▼ BIG WHITE SKI RESORT

Early opening will excite local skiers The Big White Ski Resort has announced one of its earliest openings in the mountain’s 50-year history—Saturday, Nov.16 “With nearly 100 centimetres of snow falling at Big White already, a 68-centimetre base, and more snow predicted later this week, we’re all pretty excited up here on the mountain,” said Michael J Ballingall, Big White senior vice-president.  To celebrate being the first resort to open for alpine skiing and snowboarding in B.C., Big White will be offering its lift tickets, rental equipment, and lessons at half price on opening day.

The “ski free” offer is valid based on double occupancy in select hotel rooms, one- and two-bedroom condos, and also on quad-occupancy in select three- or four-bedroom condominiums and vacation homes. This offer is valid to book now until Dec. 19, 2013, by quoting booking code 10/1314.

NEW FOR FAMILIES

The new Loose Moose Emporium is an extension of Big White’s world famous Kids Centre.

One of Big White’s newest and most innovative family programs is the Mom, Dad and Me Ski Lesson. It’s one way to start skiing for young children (aged 3 to 6), especially those anxious about being

away from a parent. A two-hour semi-private lesson (child and parent) introduces the child to skiing, while at the same time providing the parent with tips on how to teach their child using games and fun activities. They have packaged this lesson with twonights of accommodation, four two-day lift passes, and tube park tickets, starting at $275/person.

NEW FOR FOODIES

Bringing the luck of the Irish to Big White, The Blarney Stone, will be opening at The Inn at Big White this winter season. This Irish tavern will be offering hearty Irish inspired food, fine craft ales, and of course that family friendly hospitality the Irish are known for.

As the sun sets, guests will set out from the village and ski to the mid-mountain Paradise Camp. The resort’s culinary team has prepared a fourcourse gourmet fondue meal, starting with a welcoming steaming mug of mulled wine. As the evening progresses, wine educator Gerrit Van Staalduinen will walk guests through food and Okanagan wine parings on a tasting tour of the valley. Feature wineries include ExNihilo Vineyards, Misconduct Wine Co, Moon Curser Vineyards and Mt. Boucherie Winery. Silver Star Mountain and Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre opened last Saturday with 70-plus kilometres of groomed trails.

▼ DAY OFTRAFFIC PEACE

Driving fatalities remembered at service W hen we combine an awareness of loss and suffering with an optimism that we can make a difference, we can be motivated to take remarkable steps to end the loss and suffering. Look at the money that has been raised, and the important research that has been done with that money, in our fights against cancer, AIDS and other diseases and medical conditions. There are the fund raising efforts for those hit by natural disasters, the most recent being the fund raising efforts to help those impacted by the typhoon in the Philippines.  There are countless local examples, one being a group of my friends currently working towards what had seemed by some to be an unreachable goal to raise $50,000 to help out a friend in need. A keen appreciation of the loss is a necessary motivational ingredient. The light of hope is also necessary. We are not going to throw our hard earned money, nor our time, at something unless we feel that our contribution will make a difference.

membrance for Road Traffic Victims.  A “day of peace” has been proposed as a global initiative. A day when we combine an awareness of loss and suffering with an optimism that we can make a difference, we can be motivated to take remarkable steps to end the loss and suffering. The national day of remembrance follows on Wednesday, Nov. 20,.  Mayor Walter Gray has proclaimed that day as the Day of Remem-

brance for Road Traffic Victims in Kelowna.  Please join me that evening as I lead the second annual Kelowna event commemorating that day at the Orchard Park Mall parking lot, corner of Dilworth Drive and Highway 97, at 5 p.m. By gathering together, we can help raise awareness of the losses caused by road traffic incidents and of what each and every one of us can do to contribute to the solution. 

This is not a call for donations. It is a call for action, of respect by and towards all road users; a day on which exceptional care is taken by motorists; a day of courtesy at the wheel and a day when all road laws are respected so that a world day without crashes resulting in injury or death will become a reality. Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna.

ALR position on the record

A

story in the Globe and Mail last week, based on leaked documents, caused quite a stir among those who consider preservation of farmland to be a top priority. The report suggested that in a “core review,” the B.C. government was looking at dismantling the Agricultural Land Commission, which oversees the Agricultural Land Reserve. Also apparently raised in the document was the concept of dividing the ALR into two zones

—one for southwestern B.C., and the other for the Interior and north. The minister in charge of the government’s review was quick to deny any intention of dissembling the ALC, or to have it overruled by the Oil and Gas Commission. That scenario was raised by some in light of issues between the two land use agencies in regard to oil and gas exploration and extraction in the northern reaches of the province.

250-763-7114 DELIVERY 250-763-7575

Bennett maintained the Globe story is based on an old document, and that agricultural land commissioners will continue to decide on applications to amend the land reserve, established 40 years ago to protect farmland from development. We find it hard to believe this government—or any other for that matter—would be so foolhardy as to attempt to dramatically tamper with something so important to the public, and the province. To do so would be pol-

itical suicide. Is the ALR perfect? No. Could some re-evaluation be made on some unfarmable lands in the Interior and north? Yes. In that context, we’ll be interested to learn what the core review finds and recommends for the ALR’s future. However, the government now is on the record that it stands firm behind the Agricultural Land Reserve and the commission that oversees it. That will not be forgotten.

LNG industry opportunities will reach out to the Okanagan

S

ince I became premier more than two years ago, I’ve been focused on jobs—on creating opportunities for British Columbians to succeed, both today and in the future. So how do we actually go about creating those opportunities? Governments don’t create jobs. The private sector does that. But governments can and do create the conditions for business to have the opportunity to thrive, expand, and hire more people. A significant component of our plan for growing the economy, the BC Jobs Plan, is taking advantage of the transformative opportunity presented by LNG, which will create opportunities for the whole province.

To illustrate how, I like to look towards Penticton. As anyone who lives there can tell you, Penticton is home to Britco, a real B.C. business success story. It’s grown into one of the largest manufacturers of modular buildings in North America, including housing for Olympic athletes in 2010. Last month, I helped Britco celebrate a new project for the Devon Pike project in Northern Alberta—almost 1,600 rooms for workers, worth $100 million.

Opportunity in northern Alberta created a need for workforce housing, which Britco, an established world leader in the field, is taking advanChristy tage of, creating jobs in Clark the Okanagan. And if you’re thinking we shouldn’t compare Alberta’s oil sands with our natural gas, you’re right. There’s actually more energy in our surplus natural gas than exists in Alberta. The opportunity is actually greater. Conservative expectations for LNG growth show that between now

MLA’S REPORT

and 2046, the industry could add as much as $1 trillion to B.C.’s economy. This is already taking place, and $7 billion already has been invested. When construction starts in full, we project 100,000 jobs, and enough revenue to create a Prosperity Fund to eliminate our provincial debt. Indirectly, growth and a new LNG industry will support thousands of spin-off jobs in transportation, engineering, construction and environmental management. And as the multinational corporations set up shop here, we’re going to do as much as possible to ensure B.C. businesses are first in line for those opportunities. Obviously, LNG proponents

aren’t starting from scratch; they will have their own, preferred suppliers. But LNG development is a longterm investment, and they know they’re putting down roots in British Columbia. That’s why we’re launching the LNG-Buy BC program. Our government will connect local B.C. businesses to the multi-national corporations building their projects. And we’ve got Gordon Wilson, a man who knows how to get things done, making those introductions. Companies like Britco, recognized as a world leader in its industry, may not need the help, but for small

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

▼ GMO FOODS

Forum is for skeptics and believers To the editor: UBC Okanagan professor Blythe Nilson recently wrote a newspaper column that downplayed the concerns of local citizens that took part in recent rallies against genetically modified food. Millions of people took part in similar actions globally for the second time in six months. I personally commend anyone who takes their civic responsibilities seriously and participate in peaceful demonstrations. As for the quotes Nilson included in her column seemingly designed to make activists look stupid, I think with 300 to 400 people in attendance in Kelowna alone, surely some much more factual quotes would have been

easy to find. In her column, Nilson provided a lesson in cell functioning. But the lesson was missing a very important detail, and the devil is always in the details. When GMOs were first approved, it was believed that each gene preformed just one function, which Nilson could comment on and the best place for her to do so would be at the upcoming scientists cross-Canada public forum tour on GMO foods making a stop in Kelowna Sunday, Nov. 24, 7 p.m., at Okanagan College. The guest speakers for the forum will be Thierry Vrain, a retired genetic engineer, who after a 30-year career with Agriculture Canada will speak to the risks of GE technology. The second guest speaker will

be former Health Canada science advisor Shiv Chopra. He was the whistle-blower who refused pressure from Health Canada to approve bovine growth hormones for the Canadian market. It should be a lively event to attend. There is no longer a question-the best minds in the scientific world were wrong. They had predicted humans to have 100,000 genes coding for specific traits—one for blue eyes, one for straight hair ,etc. However the actual number of genes that humans have is now believed to number 20,000. That is a very, very wide margin of error coming from the best and brightest in the field…humble pie anyone? And when it was not

Water features at risk To the editor: I received a call recently from an area (Joe Rich) resident who is extremely concerned about proposed bylaw changes to man-made water features. While in the past the “official line” has been to encourage providing locations for water fowl and reptiles to land, feed, rest and nest, that wisdom is apparently now about to be drastically altered. The proposed “enlightened” philosophy is to designate all “water features, Man-made or not, as water ways, wetlands and riparian areas and for all be included within the same bylaw.

That will mean you can’t build, disturb or maintain anything within 30 metres (100 feet) of the said waterfeature. That means no gazebo, no park bench, no mowing the lawn, no nothing. I’m sure if someone has the money and/or influence they can, as is always the case, acquire a “variance.” But the question begs to be asked: “Why in God’s name would anyone choose to develop a water feature and not be allowed to do anything with an area of their property that exceeds the size.” The end result will be no more “man-made”

places for water fowl and reptiles to find rest, lodging,sustenance, nesting areas, etc. This apparently is all to be discussed and decided upon at a “behind closed doors” meeting held in an undisclosed place. This isn’t just for “new” development, this includes everything—existing and new. Other than “makework” projects and job protection, what are these “responsible,” “enlightened,” “intelligent” officials and bureaucrats thinking? John B. Collinson, Kelowna

Give due process to senators To the editor: Re: Canada senators for B.C.—Larry Campbell, Mobina Jaffer, Yonah Martin, Richard Neufled and Nancy Green Raine. I am a lifelong resident of B.C. and apparently I’m represented in Canada’s Senate by you five senators. As a taxpayer, I cannot emphasize strongly enough how outrageous and disappointing the current situation with the three accused senators (Michael Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau) has become and what an affront to our cherished democracy the fact that the Senate is even considering passing the proposed expulsion. I urge every one of you to consider the implications involved in finding these

three “ne’er do wells” guilty before applying due process. It is unheard of and totally against the fairness we Canadians take pride in. Whether or not they are guilty as charged, they must be heard. What possible reasons could Prime Minister Stephen Harper have for this obscene rush to convict other than trying to suppress the truth. The appeal to saving taxpayer money rings very hollow as he could have handled this matter in proper fashion by answering questions straightforwardly and honestly from the outset.   Take this opportunity to stand up and be counted as one who supports the principle of simple justice; you owe it to your fellow Canadians.

▼ RAIL AND ROADS

Railway corridor is public priority To the editor: Letter writer Neil Cadger made a crucial point (“Rail should be treated like roads,” Capital News, Nov. 12) in saying the CNR railway corridor should be treated as a public good. In fact, the current debate has lost sight of the fact that the line was originally completed in 1924-25 with public money. At the time, the CNR, a crown corporation, went to Parliament to obtain the funds necessary to lay the ties and rail to Kelowna. It defies common sense to see the railway line, which occupies the most direct and level transportation route between Kelowna and Vernon, lying derelict while the provincial and federal governments continue to spend millions enhancing the highway corridor with an expensive four-lane route that carves through the rugged terrain high above the valley. Perhaps the whole debacle can be put down to a lack of a regional planning authority that could set a clear vision for the valley’s future. Of course, such an authority would need the power and funding to plan for efficient transportation adapted to meet the valley’s needs. Meantime, the province and the municipalities need to provide leadership before the corridor is broken up and sold off, and a route that was built at public expense is irretrievably lost.

▼ AIMIA-AGO PHOTGRAPHY PRIZE

Kelowna-born artist ‘stunned’ by major photography award Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

A photographer from Kelowna has won Canada’s leading photography prize. Erin Shirreff, who now lives and works in New York City and whose work has gained international recognition for its unique interweaving of photography, video and sculpture, was awarded the Aimia-AGO Photography Prize at the Art Gallery of Ontario last night. The prize includes $50,000 and a fully funded, six- to eight-week residency in Canada next year. “When my name was announced, I was so stunned they nearly had to push me up on stage,” Shirreff told the Capital News just hours after she was announced as the winner at a gala in Toronto. Shirreff’s work has been the subject of recent solo exhibitions in Vancouver, London and

Erin Shirreff Kingston, Ont. and is in the collections of prestigious internationally recognized museums such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The Kelowna-born and raised artist, who went to KLO Secondary before moving to Vancouver Island to study at the University of Victoria, was selected by public vote after a record 25,000 votes were cast during the 10-week voting period. She moved to New York in 2001. Her parents

still live in Kelowna. Shirreff, 38, beat out four international artists for the prize, Edgardo Aragón (Mexico), LaToya Ruby Frazier (United States) and Chino Otsuka (Japan/United Kingdom). Each runner-up received a $5,000 stipend dedicated to the research, creation and production of new work and they will also be offered sixto eight-week fully funded residencies in Canada next year. Voting began on Aug. 27 and ended Nov 5, at AimiaAGOPhotographyPrize.com and on the Prize’s Facebook page. The public also had the opportunity to vote at the AGO, inside the Aimia -AGO Photography Prize 2013 exhibition, on view at the gallery until Jan. 5, 2014. Shirreff said while she knew she had made it to the final short list, she did not expect to win. But she said the prize money will help her co-

The exhibition at the AGO, one of Canada’s most prominent art galleries, features two of Shirreff’s long-duration videos, Lake and Moon, both of which are described as extending and exploring the act of looking. Constructed from hundreds of individual photographs captured in her studio, these works collapse time and place as they fluctuate between natural and artificial effects, stillness and motion. Lake features an image of Okanagan Lake, taken near her hometown of Kelowna. Shirreff said she used an image she found in an old B.C. tourist brochure that she picked up at a thrift store. “My work is not usual-

ly autobiographical nd I have has people tell me the scene reminds them of their home towns,” she said. Despite that, she said it is nice to see an image from her hometown as part of the exhibition that helped her win the prize. Lake features the picture of Okanagan Lake transformed through many colours and lighting effects in the 44-minute long loop video. She said while she considered herself a sculptor, most artists today have a photographic component to their art work. Shirreff’s work, and that of the other finalists, was praised by organizers of the competition. “There was an incredible amount of talent among this year’s shortlisted artists and we were thrilled to see the enor-

mous response from the public, who voted by the thousands, in record numbers,” said Matthew Teitelbaum, director and CEO of the AGO prior to the public announcement of the winner. “In partnership with Aimia, the prize is truly innovative in its accessibility and broad support of Canadian and international contemporary photography.” “We offer our sincerest congratulations to Erin Shirreff and all of the shortlisted artists,” said Vince Timpano, president and CEO of Aimia in Canada. “Supporting the arts is a key pillar of Aimia’s social purpose, and through our partnership with the AGO, we are honoured to be able to recognize such talented contemporary photography artists here in Canada and around the

world.” Previous winners of the Aimia-AGO Photography Prize, formerly known as The Grange Prize, include Jo Longhurst of the U.K. (2012), Gauri Gill of India (2011), Canadian photographer Kristan Horton (2010), Marco Antonio Cruz of Mexico (2009) and Canadian photographer Sarah Anne Johnson (2008). The Aimia-AGO Photography Prize is Canada’s leading photography prize and one of the largest arts and culture prize programs in the world. The prize awards more than $85,000 directly to artists working in photography each year, and is comprised of an annual exhibition at the AGO, an online exhibition international artist residencies, public programming, and scholarships.

Latest Thor flick rules T

here are two interesting phenomena in the movie business this week. The first is the how well Thor: The Dark World is performing. Thanks to what is being called The Avengers boost, it best the first Thor movie opening weekend gross by 31 per cent, bringing in over $86 million. However, the real story is how well it is doing internationally. The worldwide market is so important to movie companies that they are now releasing movies in other territories before North America. In two weeks, the film has grossed over $240 million internationally. The top grossing country overseas was Russia with $24 million, with second place going to the UK with $22.6 million. But what the industry is talking about is China’s opening weekend gross of almost $20 million, which was more than the opening of The Avengers and the entire gross of the first Thor. What this adds up to is that this is the eighth straight hit for Marvel Studio’s Cinematic Universe and confirmation for Disney that buying Marvel Entertainment four years ago was a good move. The other phenomenon is how little competition Thor will be getting this coming weekend. Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street was supposed to open this weekend but Paramount Pictures decided to delay its release until Dec. 25 to give Scorsese more time for post-production. The decision was made so last-minute that the other movie companies did not have time to move another movie into the now vacant, and possibly very lucrative, Nov. 15 spot. This situation is unique because the movie companies usually jump at the chance to have one of their films open prior to the American Thanksgiv-

Crowning a nurse brings new hope to African country It is good to be the king. Just ask Muriel Kranabetter. The associate professor at UBCO’s School of Nursing was granted that rare distinction in a special tribal ceremony in the remote mud-hut Ghana village of Chanshegu. It confered upon Kranabetter the role of village elder. That is largely in recognition of the work she has led since 2009 with fourth-year students travelling to Ghana for clinical practicums. “It was quite an honour,” said Kranabetter, who dressed in traditional claothing for the colourful festivities, spread out over several days. “There were a number of ceremonies, each with dancing and chanting and drums.” Kranabetter was given the name Malgu Naa— “King of Peace and Unity.” Chickens and goats

were sacrificed and the village feasted for days. Once the ancestral spirits were consulted and ceremonies complete, the village not only recognizes Kranabetter—Chief Yussef Derri and elders call upon her for advice and help. Kranabetter makes the trek to Ghana for six weeks every year, leading students in providing nursing care in Chanshegu and the surrounding villages. The team teaches maternal and infant health, gives immunizations, give classes in schools and deliver nursing care in hospitals and clinics. But UBCO’s initiative in Chanshegu goes far beyond the annual trip. They raised funds for water filters three years ago following a cholera outbreak. But being king came with a request for help of a different kind—the vil-

Can you help Sahara? This beautiful 1 year old girl was hit by a car this last weekend. The driver did not stop! With a broken leg, Zahara was found by dog control, and brought to the Asher Road Animal Hospital who have done extensive work to stabilize her at no charge. Unfortunately Zahara needs a specialist to repair her broken leg, and her owners are unable to afford this operation. To save Zahara from being put down, she needs to get donations to give her the chance she deserves. Donations can be made out to Asher Road Animal Hospital at 156 Asher Rd. “c/o Zahara” or at the Kelowna Capital News.

treatable. It is a tall order but the newly minted King knew the only course of action was to support the villagers in what they needed. Among those pitching in was Wade Bottorff— whose wife Joan is a faculty member of UBCO’s School of Nursing. Bottorff, an experienced builder, travelled to Ghana last spring, took over logistical duties and helped the volunteer crew cast bricks on site for the footings of the 20-by-40foot building. Completing the effort depends on nursing students and faculty raising the remaining funds to complete the clinic. The nursing students are conducting fundraisers for the $10,000 needed to pour a concrete floor, build the walls and put a roof over the clinic, which contain examination areas, a meeting room, storage, washrooms— and living quarters for a permanent staff nurse. Nursing students hold an annual Global Gala to support their overseas practicums to Ghana, Zambia and India, but need to raise dedicated funds for the clinic. This year’s fundraiser will be held Saturday, Nov.23, at the Laurel Packinghouse in Kelowna, complete with African-inspired meal, live band, silent auction and presentations by students who have gone on past trips. Tickets to the Global Gala are $50 each or $375 for a table of eight and are available at:  nursinggala2013@gmail.com or by calling 250-874-0784.

Surveys will be directed to residents, businesses, students Rutland from A1 Other online options for filling out the survey for students include https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WM9P66S, for residents https://www. surveymonkey.com/s/ WGTDNJB and for businesses https://www. surveymonkey.com/s/ W6HK5XW. The students said there is a desire for Rutland to grow and prosper, which means bringing more residents to the community. They hope the surveys will generate conversation and ideas on how to change the current “negative” perception of the community. Todd Sanderson, the

new president of the Rutland Park Society, and a member of the TRUST group, said he hopes the survey responses will provide another step in the long-term rebranding of Rutland. “TRUST was created earlier this year with the idea of bringing one united voice in seeking support for what Rutland needs from city hall and from other levels of government,” said Sanderson. “I think in the past groups such as URBA and the park society were speaking to their own parochial interests, and that made it easy for city hall to not make any infrastructure improvement commitments because our

Fortis union workers stick to principles

Lockout from A1 The union has had -plenty of support. Here -in Kelowna, the firefightners brought over heatfers to help with the cold mornings and they’ve had -weekly visits from other union members and supporters. A woman from SunRype, Teamsters 213, ecame by last week. “They’ve been a phenomenal union. They’ve acttually travelled to all our -lines in the Kootenays,” said Ross. Steelworko The

ers threw them a parade and barbecue in Trail, marching union members through the streets in their support. Asked why he isn’t among the 20 per cent of employees on the electrical side who have moved on to other jobs, Ross said it is the principle. “It’s something you have to take responsibility for,” he said. “If Canada elects a government you disagree with, you don’t leave the country. You try to make it better. You deal with it and you try to make it better.”

community wasn’t speaking to them with one unified voice.” Sanderson said the current state of the Rutland core is very similar to what the South Pandosy area was facing 20 years ago. “If you look at Asher Road in Rutland today, for instance, and look at pictures of Pandosy 15 years ago, the similarities of the two streets are striking.” That has changed in the years since and Sanderson said the goal of TRUST is to bring similar change to Rutland’s busi-

ness community. Sanderson said creating change in Rutland’s business core has an impact on a wider area, which is why the Kirshner Mountain and Black Mountain residential developments have been asked for input on what TRUST might advocate for moving forward. “When an Andrew Bruce with Melcor (Black Mountain developer) sits down with us and says you need to make some changes in Rutland in order to make residential lots more appealing, we have to listen to that,”

of the Central and South Okanagan / Similkameen

Sanderson said. “We want to create change that will make our area a more appealing place to live and shop.” Sanderson added the park society is also in ongoing talks with the city about the future management of Centennial Park and the Centennial Community Hall. He said the society is not equipped to provide ongoing maintenance to the park’s sports fields, something the city is far better equipped to do— although propreitorship over the park and community hall would remain

with the society. As for the community hall, Sanderson said the facility needs a $90,000 investment just to get the building up to current building code, standards and the society is looking at a $1.5 million investment to upgrade the facility. Some of the ideas being tossed around would be to expand the hall and relocate it to face the Roxby Square parking lot, more affordable daycare space, more space generally for community use and perhaps a “black box” theatre concept, similar to

that at the Kelowna Community Theatre. “Centennial Park is a jewel of this community that needs to be dusted off and updated a little in order to continue to be a focal point of Rutland,” Sanderson said. Sanderson said it would be ideal timing to have the community hall upgrade done by 2017, its 50th anniversary. “It would be appropriate to see that happen then but we will need help from various levels of government to help make it happen,” he said. bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

reigning CIS Player of the Year Lucas Bloodoff, the former Rockets’ captain, who is into his fourth year at St. Mary’s University in Halifax. Former fan favourite Spencer Main is enrolled at UBC in Vancouver while spark-plug Kyle St. Denis is at Selkirk College Castlegar/Nelson and 2009 Memorial Cup team member Ian Duval is at the University of Manitoba. “The WHL and our 22 member clubs are very proud to be the leading provider of hockey scholarships in Western Canada,” said WHL Commissioner Ron Robison, who will hold an open meeting with Rockets fans on Thursday in Kelowna. “The WHL takes tremendous pride in continuing to provide both current and graduate players with the most comprehen-

sive and flexible education and scholarship program available in North America today.” Other Rockets also on WHL scholarships are Max Adolph (University of Saskatchewan), Kris Lazaruk (UBC), Jesse Paradis, (University of Manitoba), Warren Shymko (University of Ottawa), Aaron Borejko (NAIT), and Jason Siebert (Camoson College). The WHL continues to be the leading provider of hockey scholarships in Western Canada. Since 1993, the Western Hockey League has awarded more than 4,900 scholarships to graduate players, representing a contribution of more than $15.4 million. The WHL scholarship is considered to be the most attractive and flexible hockey scholarship due to the fact it is a

fully guaranteed academic scholarship with no requirement to play university hockey to qualify, and the student athlete can apply the funding to any post-secondary program of his choice. This year, 169 of the 305 WHL scholarship recipients are playing elite hockey in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) Association. For every season a player plays in the WHL, they receive a full year guaranteed WHL scholarship, including tuition, textbooks and compulsory fees, to a post-secondary institution of their choice. Administered by the WHL office, the WHL scholarship is solely funded by the WHL clubs This season WHL cubs will contribute $1.9 million to graduates utilizing the WHL scholarship.

City seeks input on new parking strategy

The City of Kelowna is asking residents to share their ideas and feedback to help shape a new city-wide parking management strategy that will change regulations and rates. “We want a system that makes more short-term parking available, continues to pay for itself so that general taxation is not impacted and improves service options for a better customer experience,” said Dave Duncan, parking operations coordinator for the City of Kelowna. “We are also continually working towards building a balanced transportation network that takes pressure off the need for parking spaces.” Residents are encouraged to provide feedback and ideas through an online community engagement platform. Recommendations and supporting materials will be available at this website to generate community discussion for an interactive process that helps the project team refine the strategy. Based on research and planning, the city has prepared a series of guiding principles that will set the tone and general direction for the parking strategy discussion and any related policy, rule, regulation, bylaw or enforcement changes moving forward. A series of related strategy recommendations will also be put forward and refined through the public process. “As our city grows and changes, our systems need to keep up with that growth—and we need residents’ input so we can make the right changes to improve parking options,” said Duncan. During the next three to four weeks, residents can view the preliminary recommendations and provide input by visiting the project website at www.kelowna. ca/parking. “Through this public engagement initiative we hope to identify undetected issues, generate new ideas and determine if we are generally headed in the right direction with this important strategy,” said Duncan.

Blueliner Stadel surprises with his production for Rockets Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

No one saw it coming. Not Riley Stadel, not his teammates, not even assistant coach Dan Lambert. Through the first 18 games of his second WHL season, the 17-yearold blue liner has been one of the Kelowna Rockets’ most productive offensive weapons. The 5-foot-10, 162-pound Surrey native shares the team lead in goals with nine, including a club-high eight on the power play. While Stadel has always played with an offensive bent to his game, the numbers he’s compiling early in 2013-14 are well beyond expectations—particularly after scoring just twice in 49 games last season. Lambert said the young rearguard’s work ethic and passion for the game are paying off. “I don’t think anyone expected this out of Riley,” said Lambert. “But at the same time, the way he works at his game, his

compete level, his passion for game…those are things that make him successful. He works so hard and things are going his way right now. It’s good to see him being rewarded.” As a 15-year-old with

‘‘

I DON’T THINK ANYONE EXPECTED THIS OUT OF RILEY. Dan Lambert

Okanagan Hockey Academy, Stadel’s offensive abilities were evident as he tallied 17 goals and 48 points in 55 games during the 2011-12 season. Still, major junior hockey is a whole new level of play where Stadel has been a quick study and is making the most of his chances. “When I’ve been getting my opportunities, I guess I’ve been taking advantage of them,” said Stadel, who has nine goals

and 15 points this season. “Being out there on the power play sure does help too, the coaches are showing confidence in me. “When I’m out there 5-on-5, I’m trying to use my ice well and I’m making plays,” he added, “so that’s really been helpful in bringing out my success so far.” Ironically, Lambert points to Stadel’s improved play in his own zone as a key ingredient to his offensive success. “He’s always been an offensive guy, he handles the puck well and his passes are on the tape,” said Lambert. “But I think the reason he’s having success is that his defensive game is getting better. You tend to get out of your end a little better, and you start to make things happen at the other end of the ice. We’re seeing that with Riley.” Heading into the season, the expectation was that the bulk of the offence from the Rockets’ back end would be provided by the likes of Madison Bowey and Damon Severson. Stadel is flattered

to be included in the same conversation. “Ever since I’ve been here, I’ve looked up to Sever and Bows and being in that category is really special,” Stadel added. “I love to help out my team in that way, scoring goals. I think the defense (as a whole) is doing a good job of that, and it’s one of the reasons we’re winning games.” Stadel also credits Dan Lambert for much his success, an offensively-gifted defenceman in his own right during his junior and pro careers. “He was one of the big reasons I came to Kelowna, for the way people said he teaches kids,” said Stadel, a third-round draft pick of the Rockets in 2011. “I feel we kind of play a bit the same way, with that offensive side. He works with me a lot in the room, with video on the off days, and those things really help me with my on-ice play.” Stadel and the Rockets (14-2-0-2), who have won seven straight games, will host the Medicine Hat Tigers Saturday night.

▼ BCHL

Warriors host Vees Friday in key divisional game It may only be November, but with just three points separating first and fifth place, each game between BCHL Interior Division opponents takes on a sense of added urgency. Such will be the case this Friday night at Royal

LePage Place as the West Kelowna Warriors play host to the rival Penticton Vees. Penticton and Merritt currently share the division lead with 29 points apiece, with the Warriors (12-7-0-2), just three back in fifth spot. On Saturday,

the Warriors will host Cowichan Valley. West Kelowna is looking to rebound from a three-game losing streak after dropping a 5-3 decision to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks Tuesday night at LePage. After a solid October

(6-2-0-2), the Warriors have slipped into what head coach Rylan Ferster hopes is just a momentary funk. “We’re making those one, two, three mistakes a game and they’re ending up in our net,” says Ferster. “We made a poor

pinch on a goal and a real poor back-check on another one. The division is tight and every game is like a playoff game and you make a couple of mistakes and they end up in your net.” With the score knotted up in the third, Thom-

as Plese tallied the game winner for the Silverbacks, lifting a rebound over Warriors’ netminder Andy Desautels with less than four minutes to play in the third. Tyson Dallman, Carl Hesler, and Jason Cotton scored for the War-

riors, who went 1-for-7 ono the power play. Prior theG game, the Warriors hon-l oured defenceman Adame Plant and Salmon Armn forward Alex Gilies whow just returned from helpingT Team Canada West to ad bronze medal at the World Jr. A Challenge. s w

SPORTS

Minor football finals set for Sunday The rival Kelowna Lions and West Kelowna Sun Devils will go toe-to-toe in junior bantam action to decide the Southern Interior Football Conference championship. Kick off on Sunday at the CNC turf is 2 p.m. The Lions, who went 10-0 in 2013, won both regular season meetings between the teams. “Our games against the Lions have been hard fought and we will press them to be their best,” said Sun Devils coach Paul Huey. “ We are all looking forward to the challenge. Kelowna (Mission)

advanced to the championship game with a 51-8 humbling of the Prince George Axemen last Sunday on the artificial turf. Brady McMechan scored a pair of touchdowns for the Lions who racked up 32 first-half points then cruised to the win. The Sun Devils advanced to the final with a 38-28 win on Sunday over Salmon Arm. Mitch Kopp fired three touchdown passes and rushed for 80 yards in the win.

PEEWEE

The Vernon Magnums

will host the Kelowna Lions this Sunday in the SIFC peewee final. Kick off is 12 noon at the CNC turf. The Magnums, unbeaten at 8-0 during the regular season, won both regular season meetings between the teams, but Lions coach Kendall Gross says playoffs are a whole new ball game. “We have played Vernon twice now and although we haven’t beaten them yet the second time we played them we stayed with them for the whole game,” said Gross. “As a team we are better than we were a month ago

and I am confident that the Lions will go out this coming weekend and play hard right from the start.” The Lions advanced thanks to a 44-6 win over Salmon Arm in last weekend’s semifinal. Vernon downed the Kelowna Dragons 26-12 in the other semifinal.

After leading 7-6 at half time, the Bears couldn’t stem the tide Eover the the last two quarters, as the Fighting Irish roared back for a 34-21 victory in the first-round playoff matchup. In the end, Bears’ head coach Mike Godwin said manpower told the story as Vancouver College dressed more than twice the number of players as his squad. “Unfortunately we ran out of gas a bit late,” said Godwin. “Vancouver College had more the 50 players dressed to our 25, and not all (of our players) were 100 per cent healthy. They simply wore us down.” Despite the season-ending setback, Godwin had praise for his

players’ effort on Saturday, including from the team’s leaders and key graduating players. “Josiah Joseph, Spencer Humes, Keagan Hughes, Hayden Keller, and Tyler Geisler all had great performances, with some tremendous individual plays and circus catches, “ Godwin said. “It was an entertaining game to watch.” The Bears, who won the Okanagan AAA Conference last season with a 6-0 record, went 2-5 this year in the newly-aligned Eastern Conference, which also featured KSS and Rutland. Playing five of seven regular season games against strong Lower Mainland teams was a learning experience for all Kelowna teams, including the Boucherie program. “It was a tough season playing in the toughest conference in the province, maybe the country,” Godwin said.

“We were a really young team this year with only 8 Grade 12 players, and we were often going against teams that almost had as many senior players as we had on our team total. We competed each week, but we were just a few players short to really make some noise. “

JV PLAYOFFS

While all Central Okanagan senior teams are done, both the Bears and KSS Owls junior varsity squads have advanced to the second round of the playoffs. On Thursday afternoon, Mt. Boucherie will be in Coquitlam to take on the Terry Fox Ravens. On Friday, the Owls will host Abbotsford in a game that kicks off at 2 p.m. at the Capital News Centre. Last week, the Bears beat Lord Tweedsmuir 41-20, while the Owls knocked off New West 34-20.

SPORTS ▼ CHIEFS

Education, hockey a good mix for Josephs Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

For Nick Josephs, education comes first but hockey runs a pretty close second. The challenge for the 18-year-old Calgary-born forward is finding the proper balance between the two. Josephs currently pulls a full load of engineering classes—six this semester—at UBC Okanagan while also playing with the KIJHL’s Kelowna Chiefs. So far the combination seems to be working, as the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Josephs is not only doing well with his courses, but he’s also excelling as a star in junior B. Josephs leads the KIJHL in scoring, with 26 goals and 50 points in just 21 games. “It’s been going really well actually, I seem to be coming into my own this season,” said Josephs, who had 76 points in 41 games last season with the Chiefs. “I just need to keep playing my game. I love it right now, and hockey helps give me a break from classes. “As far as school goes, it works pretty well out for me playing here,” Josephs added. “(Coach)

Kelly Hayes

Nick Josephs Ken (Andrusiak) is really good about it, and has some pretty strong school values, so it’s been good.” Based on the way he’s torn up junior B over the last two seasons, it’s not surprising Josephs had drawn more than his share of interest from junior A teams and a few post-secondary hockey programs. He played a few games last season with the BCHL’s West Kelowna Warriors and has already dressed two games this year with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks where he scored his first junior A goal. Still, maintaining a heavy class load while playing in the BCHL would be a more complex undertaking than his current situation in Kelowna and the KIJHL. Following this season, Josephs plans to re-evaluate his options.

“I’m not too sure what the future holds,” he said. “I’m playing it by ear right now. I’ve had options to play junior A, but so far I haven’t decided which way to go. I have some interest in the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport), too. You just try to keep your options open.” Whatever path Josephs chooses, Chiefs coach Ken Andrusiak is certain the talented forward will succeed. When it comes to the KIJHL, Andrusiak says players of Joseph’s ability are few and far between. “He’s confident right now, he has nice hands and he shoots the puck better than anybody in this league,” Andrusiak said. “He spent a lot of time in the weight room over the summer and he doesn’t get bumped around like he did last year. He makes everybody around him better and he deserves to be in that other league (BCHL). But he wants to be an engineer, too, so I think he’s having fun where he is.” Joseph’s older sister, Katy, is also a hockey player and a civil engineering student at the University of Wisconsin. And while following Katy’s her footsteps is certainly an attractive scenario, Jo-

S AGAN’ OKAN

sephs plans to remain focused primarily on his education. “One bad hit and suddenly I don’t have hockey anymore, so school is very important to me,” said Josephs. “If I get a chance to combine both in the future, then I’d be really happy with that.” So for now, Josephs plans to live in the moment and help his Kelowna Chiefs take a run at the KIJHL crown. “The team is playing well and winning, so that makes it fun, too,” he said. “I think we have a chance to go far this year.” Josephs and the Chiefs return to action Friday night when they host the North Okanagan Knights.

CHIEFS WEEKEND

The Chiefs will be looking to bounce back from a two-game skid this weekend when they host the North Okanagan Knights on Friday night. Face off at Rutland Arena is 7 p.m. Kelowna dropped a 4-3 contest to the visiting Osoyoos Coyotes on Tuesday. The Chiefs (16-6-0-1) remain atop the Okanagan Division of the KIJHL, seven points ahead of Osoyoos. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Heat women run to national x-country title The UBC Okanagan Heat women’s team set the pace to win the gold medal at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Cross Country National Championship. UBCO placed four runners in the top 23 to score the winning total of 40 overall points at the nationals Nov. 9 hosted by Humber College in Etobicoke, Ont. Sandra Kilmartin (Salmon Arm) ran a blazing five kilometre race, staying with the front runners the entire distance to finish fourth with a time of 19:30.27, just 13 seconds behind the winner, Lesley Koopman (19:17.95) from MacEwan University in Edmonton. “I learned what I was capable of with my running,” a jubilant Kilmartin said post-race. “This is my best performance of the season and I’m very excited to continue to see what I’ve got in me. This was such a great experience.”  Michelle Blackburne (West Kelowna) was the next UBC Okanagan runner to cross, placing 11th in 20:12.82. Coach Nikki Reiter labelled her performance as a “tremendous asset to team scor-

ing” with her outstanding time. Blackburne was running at the championships for a second year in a row. “I’m so excited about our team’s performance,” she said. “Our goal as a team was to finish on the podium, so I’m very excited about a first place result.” Also scoring towards the team medal were season best performances by Alea Stockton (20:40.37) and Anna Merino (20:44.61) who finished 22nd and 23rd respectively overall. The four finishes in the team competition were 1, 6, 16, 17. The silver went to SAIT from Calgary with a score of 62, and St. Clair College from Windsor scored 87 for the bronze. This is the first medal at the national championships for the Heat. The team has continually improved under the guidance of coach Nikki Reiter in her three years, going from 13th in 2011 to 4th last year at the championships. Displacers were Trisha Metro (35th, 21:15.70) and Kendall Seasons (47th, 21:37.96) who rounded out the

While in China, we signed two Memorandums of Understandings (MOUs). The first, with Zhejiang province, is to work collaboratively on wood frame construction, and the second is with the Shanghai Housing Bureau to expand wood frame construction beyond the initial affordable housing project. When working in China, these MOUs are the first step towards commercial activity, and economic activity.

MLA’S REPORT

Steve Thomson Shanghai, a historic global trade port, is China’s second largest city, with infinite opportunities for B.C. businesses and forestry. Throughout the country, there has been an emphasis on green building, and building with wood, since China’s latest fiveyear plan, prominently features goals to become greener. I also travelled to Japan, where we met with industry and government to promote our province and the wood products to meet their growing de-

mands in green building. One builder, who had previously completed the Yuriage Public Market, told me how the success of that project had secured him three orders for similar structures. We also talked to JAS 2x4 lumber council—an industry group who wanted to be reassured about B.C.’s continued commitment to supply high-quality wood products. We also met with the Japan Forestry Agency and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Technology. Tokyo has been awarded the 2020 Olympics, which provides a significant opportunity for B.C. products. After all of our success on the global stage during the Vancouver Olympics in 2010, and the world-class architecture, construction, and

~GENTLEMEN~ GE T READY ~ GE T SE T I T ’S

infrastructure designed to host the Olympics and support growth of our cities, we are in a position to share our successes with Tokyo. I look forward to working with industry and business here in B.C. to secure these opportunities. This trip was a great opportunity to expand markets for B.C. lumber, and the relationships we built are crucial to maintaining and creating opportunities for British Columbians. In 2012, lumber sales to China and Japan totalled $1.8 billion, and my job is to see that number grow to create jobs in our province. Steve Thomson is the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Mission.

CONWAY, ELLEN MARGARET It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ellen Conway (nee McKay) on November 8, 2013 at the age of 69. She is survived by her loving husband Gerald, her daughters Wendy Serko (Larry), Shelley Yost (Warren), as well as her grandchildren Tasia and Landon Serko; Scott and Chase Yost. Also by her siblings George (Michelle), Frances (Jim), Stella (Gordon), Roy (Jane), Irene (Frank) and many nieces and nephews. Born in Vancouver on January 27th 1944, Ellen spent most of her younger years in North Vancouver where she met the love of her life, Ger. They married in 1961 and a few years later started a family. Ellen and Ger moved to Kelowna with their daughters, Wendy and Shelley, in 1969. Ellen devoted herself to the care of her family and home and pursued many interests such as knitting, sewing, reading, gardening, and baking just to name a few. Ellen was the kind of woman who left a positive impression on all those who met her. She was a good friend, loyal sister, excellent cook, avid volunteer, dedicated Mother, and a loving and caring spouse. Ellen courageously lived with A.L.S. (Lou Gehrig’s disease) for the last 6 1/2 years, facing every challenge along the way with strength and grace. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her. The family wishes to thank the ALS Society of BC for all the equipment supplied and moral support; The Provincial Respiratory Outreach Program (PROP); Dr. Auret Van Heerden and Dr. Graham McCauley; Deanna Hammer, Palliative Care nurse, for her care and support to Ellen and the family; the dedicated Interior Health home support staff who made it possible for Ellen to stay at home; and Members of Kelowna West UTC for their kindness and support. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Rd. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Ellen’s memory to the ALS Society of B.C. 1233-13351 Commerce Parkway, Richmond B.C. V6V 2X7 Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.

Forty-six West Kelowna residents have told their stories and shared their frustrations with health care services in West Kelowna since an initial call for submissions was put out last month. But the West Kelowna Residents Association knows there are many more people than that who want to see change. Last month, the WKRA asked residents to help identify gaps and problems with existing health care services on the Westside. The residents association has agreed to gather the feedback on behalf of Joanne Konnert, the consultant hired by the District of West Kelowna to prepare a report on the proposed Westside health facility. “I think Ms. Konnert is probably expecting a larger number,” said WKRA director Ron Green. “At the last public meeting we had on the subject, we had 245 people there.” Green said the responses so far have given

The West Kelowna teenager currently on trial for murder will finally tell her version of the events that left one of her peers dead, and turned a quiet Peachland street into a chaotic crime scene. The 18-year-old, whose name is under a publication ban, is alleged to have stabbed Ashlee Hyatt, 16, in her neck after an argument at a June 2, 2010, party. It’s a story that Crown counsel Murray Kaay assembled a number of witnesses to tell from varying angles, but defence lawyer Ingrid Friesen pointed out Friday that none of those viewpoints added up to a complete picture. “You as a jury will be the first to hear her side of the story—she wants very much to tell it,” Friesen told a B.C. Supreme Court jury Friday. “She’s been waiting two years to tell it.” The accused, who defence described as a “new girl trying to fit in at a new school,” has seen her point of view be absent in the last two weeks of trial, as even RCMP officers who dealt with the investigation failed to offer her perspective on what happened that night. What the jury has learned from teen witnesses who were there, however, is that the accused kissed a boy, while her boyfriend was nearby. This apparently upset Hyatt and the two started exchanging verbal barbs, which escalated to further pushing on the street, and eventually Hyatt was fatally wounded. Continuing on with the altercation, however, was the teenage host of the party. The defence has already suggested she was the one who brought the knife to the fight between the accused and Hyatt, and Friday two witnesses took the witness stand to highlight the teenage host’s behaviour in the aftermath and leading up to the fatal altercation. They also called upon George Young, who lives adjacent to the party house, to give testimony. Young testified he was brought into the fray when he heard a teenage boy in the street talking into his cellphone, saying, “It’s going down, it’s going down, it’s happening now.”

he day’s last light was fading and the first flakes of snow were falling outside the window, when a large black bear came ambling down the slope into the flower bed. There he began vigorously digging a hole, tossing plants aside as he went. A loud rap on the window sent him scurrying through the trees to the road, but the damage had been done in the garden. What if someone had come around the corner of the house and surprised that big animal? Others tell of watching as a large black bear ambled up their residential street, systematically exploring every driveway for garbage bins left out or other treats to eat, knocking over bins and laying down in the mess of trash in the road, while chewing on whatever was available.

Looking at the advantages of business incorporation I f you own a proprietorship, or are involved in a partnership, you know that any

income that you earn will be taxed at the rates applicable to personal tax rates.

A Gift in Memory Makes a Difference

So many business sole proprietors ask themselves how they can reduce their tax bills. One way is to incorporate. There are many tax advantages to incorporation. An incorporated company is considered to be a distinct legal entity. A small business is taxed at an average rate of 25 per cent (federal and provincial combined). If your company is eligible for the small busi-

BEHIND THE COUNTER

Gabriele Banka ness deduction, the combined rate drops to 13.5 per cent for 2013. Compare that with the lowest combined personal tax rate for 2013 of 20.06 per cent (ignoring person-

al tax credits) it certainly does make sense to incorporate for tax savings alone. To qualify for the small business deduction, you need to be a Canadian controlled private corporation, the company must generate income from active business in Canada, and if you are associated with other corporations, they must not have already claimed the deduction. Personal service busi-

Vitamin C and Lysine Powder Help Prevent Heart Attacks W. Gifford-Jones, MD

W

hy is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninety-nine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack. Years later Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twentyfive years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death.

I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus is available at health food stores. The dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal. Those at greater risk should take one flat scoop three times a day. If high doses cause diarrhea, the dose should be decreased. This column does not recommend that those taking CLDs should stop them. This is a decision that can only be made by patients and doctors. Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterol-lowering drugs are the be-all-andend-all to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!”

Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries.

It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it!

So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush, like Semmelweiss, has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, are condemning thousands of people to an early coronary heart attack.

VITAMIN C & L-LYSINE FORMULA Available at:

Fourteen years ago following my own coronary attack, cardiologists claimed it was sheer madness for me to refuse cholesterol-lowering drugs. Instead, I decided to take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons.

nesses where your main customer is one company and your services could be considered that of an employee will not qualify for the small business deduction, neither will specified investment companies. Owners of Canadian controlled private corporations may also qualify for the $750,000 (to be increased to $800,000 in 2014) lifetime capital gains exemption subject to the shares qualifying as Canadian controlled small business corporation shares, qualified farm property or qualified fishing property. Depending on how your share structure is set up and the limitations stated in your articles of incorporation, you may be able to split income with your family by issuing dividends to them out of the corporation. Dividends are grossed up and then the dividend tax credit is deducted resulting in zero personal tax effect if your income remains in the lower tax bracket. If you decide that you would like to earn a salary from your business, you can determine the amount of salary that you would wish to earn to keep your personal income in a certain tax bracket and enjoy tax savings using that method. You can also declare to pay yourself a bonus that doesn’t need to be paid until six months after the fiscal year end of the company, so you may be able to defer the tax on that bonus until the following year depending on when you set your fiscal year end date. There are also ways of estate and family planning using a company whereby you can ‘crystallize’ the value of your company for future generations, or set up a family trust to provide for your family in the future. The company has a perpetual existence and does not expire when the shareholders die. Other than tax savings, there are other advantages such as the possibility for more capital investment by investors. People may be more likely to invest in an incorporated company without becoming liable for the debts of the company. A company has limited liability in that the shareholders are only liable up to the amount of their investment in the

company, unless of course they have signed personal guarantees as officers of the company which is required by most banks. Directors of the company are liable for any debts to government agencies. An incorporated company is usually taken more seriously in the eyes of banks, creditors and customers. It is believed that if you have gone through the trouble and expense of incorporating you must have long range plans for your business. The disadvantages to incorporation are the increase in paperwork for incorporation documents, notices, minutes and annual reports. You will need to file a corporate tax return in addition to a personal tax return. The B.C. Company’s Act indicates that each company requires an audit unless waived at an annual meeting by the board of directors. The act also requires that you maintain proper accounting records. The financial statements and the fair representation of the numbers represented in the financial statements are the responsibility of management so for your own protection, it would be a good idea to understand what is in your financial statement. Your accountant can explain all the different aspects of your financial statement to you and although not usually made obvious, you will be approving the financial statements produced by your accountant. So if you are uncomfortable with any of the numbers, speak up and ask questions. The costs of incorporating will be higher than operating as a proprietorship or a partnership. These days you can incorporate online or you can incorporate using the services of a lawyer depending on your comfort level. It would also be a good idea to discuss your business plans and future family plans with your accountant to make sure that your company structure will be satisfactory to serve your future purposes as it can be very expensive to change corporate structure once it has been set up.

After experiencing a baptism by fire last winter, AEL is confident it’s taken the necessary steps to keep West Kelowna roads as safe as possible this winter. AEL began its road maintenance contract with West Kelowna Dec. 7, 2012. It then struggled to keep all of the district’s roads clear later that month. “Everybody recognizes things didn’t go as smoothly as one would’ve liked from the Dec. 7 changeover,” said Chris Anderson, roads and contract supervisor for the district. Last year the District of West Kelowna received more than 1,500 phone calls and e-mails regarding snow removal. Although there were a few compliments regarding the service being done by AEL, the majority of comments complained about roads being snowy or icy. The comments resulted in 552 work orders being submitted to AEL by district staff. On Jan. 22, AEL presented to council and accepted responsibility for the road maintenance issues and committed to

AEL, the road maintenance contractor for the District of West Kelowna, is confident service will be improved this winter. Last winter the district received 1,500 phone calls and e-mails regarding snow removal. an improved level of service for the following winter. “After (last) winter we went through our entire fleet; we went through our staffing; we went through our supplies; we looked at our methods,” said Dustin Khadikin, contract manager for AEL. “The guys took a huge step forward this year making sure our trucks are prepared for winter.” As a result, AEL took out three key units, which caused workers a lot of grief last year, and

brought in larger units to replace them. The company also looked at the way it deposits snow. “One of the frequent phone calls that we got was particularly (from residents) in cul-de-sacs,” said Khadikin. “They felt like they were being picked on because all the snow got pushed their direction. We took all of our units and we put on two-way front plows…so we can now drag snow different directions.”

AEL will also work to keep drivers on the same routes as much as possible, so they become increasingly familiar with the areas they’re responsible for. Mayor Doug Findlater said he looks forward to “much improved” snow removal this winter. “It was a perfect storm last year. The contractor signed very late in the process; the operator wasn’t quite ready,” said Findlater. “We had a pretty tough time, but there’s

District asks residents to help with snow removal With temperatures dropping and flurries in the forecast, West Kelowna’s winter road maintenance begins. Residents can help with snow removal efforts by: • Making room for the plows: During times of heavy or persistent snowfalls,

residents are asked not to park vehicles on street to ensure plows are able to efficiently remove snow from West Kelowna roads. Residents are asked to note that snow plows can’t avoid depositing snow in front of driveways when clearing streets. The district’s priority is to provide safe

travel lanes for motorists. To minimize the amount of snow left in front of driveways, shovel snow to the left side (when facing the property) • Keeping sidewalks safe: Residents are required to clear snow from sidewalks and pedestrian accesses fronting their properties within 24 hours

of snowfall. The district clears sidewalks and walkways adjacent to civic buildings and in the vicinity of select pedestrian accesses and parks • Placing garbage bins correctly: Waste collection bins should be placed in a cleared area near the curb whenever possible. Put

been a year to think about this.” Coun. Rick de Jong said he appreciates the effort being put forward by AEL. “When we entered into this agreement last year, it was dubbed to be a long-term business relationship,” said de Jong. “With the communication after what took place last year and all the effort that has taken place…I’m grateful and optimistic this is going to be a much better season.”

West Kelowna transit ridership drops Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

The 3,700 bus service hours that West Kelowna council opted to cut last year have resulted in reduced transit ridership in the district. BC Transit senior transit planner Matthew Boyd gave council an update at its meeting on Tuesday. “Overall, the passenger boardings have gone down on weekdays. That’s indicative of when you reduce your resources and reduce your budget

for service hours, there’s a natural reduction also in ridership,” said Boyd. However, Boyd told council it made the right decision to reduce service hours in September 2012 in the areas that had low ridership. “The boardings per hour remained, overall, fairly static.” Coun. Carol Zanon said she found it difficult to compare the statistics that were illustrated Tuesday. “There are very limited conclusions I can

make from the data that’s shown here,” said Zanon. “The fact is, ridership on the weekdays dropped about 15 per cent…I’m hoping there is a plan to woo back the 15 per cent, and more, because we’re putting a huge investment into RapidBus.” Coun. Rick de Jong said Glenrosa’s route 21 has become “ineffective” since council made the cuts to service. “I know a few people who have actually had to go out and buy vehicles because route 21 is no longer efficient,” said de Jong. He admitted that re-

sult came from a decision made by council, but he criticized BC Transit for sending buses too small during the morning commute, which filled up fast and left young students on the side of the road on several occasions this fall.

Residents are asked to drive to suit the road conditions. When possible, plan for extra travel time during snowfall. Ensure you have appropriate winter tires and familiarize yourself with driving in winter conditions. The district has provided comprehensive information on its website—districtofwestkelowna.ca—regarding snow removal, including

a snow clearing priorities map. Snow removal is conducted on a priority basis with the top priority for clearing being arterial and collector roads, transit routes and roads with steep grades. School zones, school bus routes, town centres and population centres are also prioritized before all other local roads. During times of heavy and persistent snowfalls,

road crews must continue to focus on higher priority roads in the municipality, which can lead to a delay in snow removal on local roads. ••• On Tuesday, West Kelowna council unanimously voted to implement a community recognition program that will recognize those who assist West Kelowna residents with snow removal. Residents who have

their sidewalks cleared by a neighbour or another resident will be able to nominate that person for a chance to win a prize at the end of the season. The City of Kelowna has a similar program, called Snow Busters, which receives between 30 and 50 nominations each year. West Kelowna council authorized the expenditure of $500 to finance a contest prize.

CHANCES TO WIN!

The building which has housed an RCMP station, former Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart’s campaign office and Premier Christy Clark’s campaign office during the spring by-election, will be the temporary home for West Kelowna’s Storefront School. West Kelowna council unanimously approved the issuance of a temporary use permit to allow the school to operate in the location for three years. School District 23 previously operated the Storefront School out of a portion of Westbank Lions Community Centre, which was damaged by fire Sept. 1. “I’ve spoken with school staff and their concern is that those kids (who use) the alternate school, are not in school—they don’t want to go to Kelowna,” said Mayor Doug Findlater. “This seems to be a low-impact location.”

Education and hockey are a good mix for Chiefs Nick Josephs Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

For Nick Josephs, education comes first but hockey runs a pretty close

second. The challenge for the 18-year-old Calgary-born forward is finding the proper balance between the two. Josephs currently

pulls a full load of engineering classes—six this semester—at UBC Okanagan while also playing with the KIJHL’s Kelowna Chiefs.

So far the combination seems to be working, as the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Josephs is not only doing well with his courses, but he’s also excelling as a star in junior B. Josephs leads the KIJHL in scoring, with 26 goals and 50 points in just 21 games. “It’s been going really well actually, I seem to be coming into my own this season,” said Josephs, who had 76 points in 41 games last season with the Chiefs. “I just need to keep playing my game. I love it right now, and hockey helps give me a break from classes. “As far as school goes, it works pretty well out for me playing here,” Josephs added. “(Coach)

Ken (Andrusiak) is really good about it, and has some pretty strong school values, so it’s been good.” Based on the way he’s torn up junior B over the last two seasons, it’s not surprising Josephs had drawn more than his share of interest from junior A teams and a few post-secondary hockey programs. He played a few games last season with the BCHL’s West Kelowna Warriors and has already dressed two games this year with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks where he scored his first junior A goal. Still, maintaining a heavy class load while playing in the BCHL would be a more complex undertaking than his cur-

some interest in the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport), too. You just try to keep your options open.” Whatever path Josephs chooses, Chiefs coach Ken Andrusiak is certain the talented forward will succeed. When it comes to the KIJHL, Andrusiak says players of Joseph’s ability are few and far between. “He’s confident right now, he has nice hands and he shoots the puck better than anybody in this league,” Andrusiak said. “He spent a lot of time in the weight room over the summer and he doesn’t get bumped around like he did last year. He makes everybody around him better and he deserves to be in that other league (BCHL). But he wants to be an engineer, too, so I think he’s having fun where he is.” Joseph’s older sister, Katy, is also a hockey player and a civil engineering student at the University of Wisconsin. And while following Katy’s her footsteps is certainly an attractive scenario, Josephs plans to remain focused primarily on his education. “One bad hit and suddenly I don’t have hockey anymore, so school is very important to me,” said Josephs. “If I get a chance to combine both in the future, then I’d be really happy with that.” So for now, Josephs plans to live in the moment and help his Kelowna Chiefs take a run at the KIJHL crown. “The team is playing well and winning, so that makes it fun, too,” he said. “I think we have a chance to go far this year.” Meanwhile, the Chiefs will be looking to bounce back from a two-game skid this weekend when they host the North Okanagan Knights Friday night. at Rutland Arena at 7 p.m. Kelowna dropped a 4-3 contest to the visiting Osoyoos Coyotes on Tuesday. The Chiefs (16-6-0-1) remain atop the Okanagan Division of the KIJHL, seven points ahead of Osoyoos.
